As I was vacuuming my vacuum cleaner stopped working


Hi, it's Allie from Crucial Vacuum!

Your Hoover Windtunnel may have stopped working for several reasons. First, make sure that your unit is properly plugged into an electrical outlet and make sure the electrical outlet is working correctly. Vacuum units, and other appliances, protect themselves from sudden electrical charges, ups and downs. Make sure the electrical fuse and breaker are on, if not reset breaker.

Some units may heat up and will automatically shut themselves down to prevent fires. Allow your unit to cool down for 30 minutes while the thermal protector is automatically reset. Overheating, may have been caused by a clogged hose, dirty filters, full bags or a roller brush that is not running properly. All these situations compromise the unit's air flow and make the unit work harder, making it to heat up.

To avoid these situations and to keep your unit running at it's maximum capacity, make sure to change filters regularly (recommended every 3-6 months), clean your brush roll from any tangled hair strands or debris monthly (roller brushes are recommended to be replaced at least yearly), and replace belts every 6 months.

I have Ridgid wet/dry shop vac, I was vacuuming


Did you have a paper/cardboard filter attached to the top part of the unit? Sounds like you didn't have a filter or the silicate material got past it and into the motor and windings. Bad news if this is the case. Try taking the top part off, turn it on to see if it runs without the bottom tank section. Double check to see if your vac has a fuze. If it won't go on you'll need to dismantle the upper unit and clean it all out. Hand turn the motor and see if it easily turns or is sluggish. My wife used my wet/dry vac without the filter and wrecked it with sheetrock dust into the motor. I dismantled the top, cleaned it twice and it's still no good. By the way, generally you have to take the paper filter out if you are vacuuming wet up. If you leave the paper filter on and vacuum wet up, the paper filter will get wet, shred and get pulled into the upper motor unit. A wet/dry vac isn't really made to pump water (by the gallons) out of places, so don't expect that. Okay yes you can often hook up an outlet hose to the drain port at the back of the tank and vacuum quantities of water, but it's not really made to do this.

Miele upright vacuum makes loud noise and dust comes out at bottom


It sounds to me like one of the hoses is plugged, probably the one that comes from the brushroll. That would make the dust and dirt come back out the front and would not let the vac pick up like normal. Clear the plug and you're machine should start cleaning better again.

My dyson no longer will turn on. Is there some filters I am supposed to be cleaning. Purchased the vacuum from someone who did not have the manual.


you have two filters, one under the lid on your dust bin and one in the ball. It could be the switch has gone bad because of overheating.

If you need any help feel free to contact me.

I was vacuuming with my Hoover Windtunnel Rewind t-series, and the vacuum simply stopped working. I plugged it into other outlets all around the house but no power suddenly.


Wait 30 minutes and try again, there is a thermal overload switch that resets itself.
Clean all three filters and see what happens.

Stopped suddenly, won't start back


Your vacuum has an auto shut off when motor gets hot. It comes back on after 1 hour & is cooled down. While it is cooling down, you want to check the following; look for either a blockage in either the main hose, or lower hose, or just need to clean the dust cup foam & filter, & check the hepa filter on the side of the vacuum.

Electrolux Model 2100 vacuum won't work


hi from uk may i suggest you remove cover and the new dust collection bag then if you look in the bag compartment there is a gauze filter fitted usually grey in colour ? at opposite end of compartment where bag connects this gauze filter is the outlet from bag compartment that the air exhales when vac is operating ie as vac **** up dust into bag the bag has microscopic holes that allow sucked up air and dust to collect but keeps dust from passing into bag chamber but allows air to escape thro holes and so enter bag chamber then escapes via the gauze filter to outside of vac hope you follow this ?? now if this filter is blocked/never been cleaned/changed ? then the symptoms of indicator bag full light will come on you can remove and wash filter if it is gauze typ? dry and refit then try vacuuming ? or replace filter they are not expensive usually in pack of 3 in uk DO NOT RUN VAC WITHOUT THIS FILTER FITTED ! or you will have some dust in the room ? hope this helps?

Dirt Devil Purpose for Pets suddenly stopped vacuuming, totally cutting off. Checked plug and outlet for problems which were negative.


I had this same problem. All of a sudden it shuts off while vacuuming and then i'd have to wait a while before it would turn back on. Finally it stopped working period. Before going out to buy a new vacuum, I decided to take the thing apart and clean it up really good. That included running a clothes hanger through the tubes to get all the stuck hair out, removing the roller and getting all the hair untangled from it, and rinsing out the air filters (both the sponge and the plastic piece with the paper like filter) with hot water. Then you let the filters dry for a day or two. The plastic/paper filter takes longer to dry so I used a hair dryer. The vacuum itself is not hard to take apart. I think there are only 11 total screws you need to take out. After the filters dried I put them back in the newly cleaned vacuum and it worked like new. I think the main problem was the condition of the filters. They can get pretty filthy over time, which will limit the air flow to the motor. With less air the motor is more likely to overheat and shut off. So keep your filters clean and you shouldn't have any proplems.
