Vaccuum stopped running

I had just replaced the belt and vaccuum worked great. Then, after a few minutes it just quit. Instructions on back of machine said to unplug immediately and look into manual, which I do not have. What do you suspect the problem to be? Thanks

Belt jumped off beater bar and jammed it! Disconnect belt, does imotor run. If yes, reconnect belt turning beater bar by hand to see if it is smooth. Carefully, reassemble and run it!

For the first two years our DC07 worked great, but then it would run for a few minutes and then just quit. After a few minutes it would start again and then quit. We washed the filters and checked the air...

Hi there,

I'm sorry to hear about the difficulties you're having with your DC07. Someone will be in touch to discuss this further and help you resolve the issue shortly.

Best wishes,

My Hoover runs for a few minutes and shuts off.

It's possible the thermal reset is defective. It shuts the motor off if it gets hot. Remove the bag door and take the bag off, remove both filters and then turn the vacuum on, just leave it sit there with the motor running. This eliminates the bag or filters causing any airflow resistance. If it still shuts off after a few minutes it's likely the thermal reset is bad. Some vacuums have an external thermal reset button which can be replaced if necessary but on your model it is built into the motor and you must replace the motor. If the motor runs fine put the bag and the filter under the bag back in - (make sure the filter is clean and not restricting airflow) put the bag cover on then turn it on again. If it overheats and shuts off then you may have a clog on there somewhere restricting the airflow. If so check the power nozzle area, the hose coming from the power nozzle, the extension hose and wands for clogs or restrictions.

Bar not spinning

The belt is probably worn or stretched. Here is a link for the instructions on how to change the belt and a link for the belt you need:

My fusion just stopped. i was vaccuuming and it

One item to check is this: This unit has a temperature overheat device.
Unplug the unit for 20 minutes, then plug in and turn on the switch. If there was a blockage in the hose/cup/filters, this could cause the overheating.

If this does not resolve the problem, it will need disassembled and checked with a continuity meter to determine the component that failed (motor, switch, cord, or TCO)

Kenmore 26082 Canister Vacuum Shuts off constantly. When Im vaccuuming maybe about 5 minutes later it shuts off. Then give it a few minutes later it turns back on. Whats the problem with this vaccuum

You could have a clog in the hose. Also check your filters, if you haven't changed them in a while, that could be what's suffocating your motor

Brush won't spin on my Hoover Mach 5

I love this vacuum but had the same problem.

SOLUTION:

Eureka the Boss bagless

Sounds like you have a clog somewhere. Check the filter inside the dust compartment, if is very dirty it won't allow ait to flow thru, Part #62132, DCF-H filter. Check the hose, take it off if you can and drop something in it to see if it comes out the other end, if it doesn't, then the hose is clogged. Check bown by the brush roll, the inlet may be plugged. Also if the belt is more then say 6 months old, you may want to replace it, I am sure it is strertched, part #61120B, extended life belt.

Hoover fusion plus cyclonic upright vacuum

While I'm having a different problem, the problem you guys are experiencing can easily be fixed by cleaning the two internal filters. My vacuum did the same thing, just stopped running mid-stream. Remove the main filter cup. Look inside the cavity of the vacuum and you'll see a grey bar at the bottom of the cavity, pull this up and you'll find the first of two washable filters. Just rinse it under warm water squeezing as you rinse until the water runs clear. The roll the filter in a few paper towels or towel and unroll, reroll until completely dry - should only take a few minutes. Then, look in the same cavity except up top there is another filter which seems to be hidden. The back wall of the inside cavity will guide you to these filters as well. You will be amazed by the difference cleaning these will make in the suction power of your vacuum. Also, if you remove the belt cover and clean out the hose in this area it will improve suction as well. Hope this helps. Now, if I could just get the darn belt back on mine. First belt smoked and popped. Bought replacement belt, smoked and popped within seconds... HELP!!!

Hoover Windtunnel 3 air cordless vacuum: Broke the brush-head off the body & can't get it apart to fix it. I broke both legs off the Fork which holds the vacuum head to the motor housing / body of the vac while trying to engage the upright-position-lock. I can't get the remains of the swivel-piece off to glue the fork legs back on to it. I took the screws out of the motor housing, but the housing halves still seem to be joined by the swivel, and I don't dare pry too hard. Any help out there? ************************************************************* HEY! I figured it out! All I had to do was take out the chrome screw & washer at the pivot point for the brush-head (which I thought was the motor housing, but it's not), opposite the brush-head itself, and force the metal shaft which the screw was in out of the housing, which was hard as hell. I got another screw similar to the original (metric, M4 x 0.7 x approx 35mm long) and screwed it part way into the hole the previous screw came out of, then I hammered on it fairly gently but repeatedly and it came out the other side bit-by-bit. (If you use the original screw to hammer on, you'll destroy the phillips-head recess.) It's extremely awkward to figure a way to brace the vacuum against the hammer blows without damaging anything, but if it's not braced solidly I doubt the shaft will ever come out. I can barely believe a press-fit in a plastic part held SO tight!
