While vacuuming with my hoover mach 5 it all the sudden shut down
\015 While vacuuming for over an hour with my hoover mach 5 it all the sudden quit workingshut down wont turn on again. Appears to quite marm to touch.\015
Hi, If it is warm to the touch, and it just shut down all of a sudden, I would say that the motor has an internal over load switch that is normally closed, and opened to stop from burning this vac out. It is a built-in safety. I would look at the roller for anything that may have hung up, but steady use for an hour just over heated the motor. Let it cool way down. Try and start it. Also, check the plug to see if you may have lost power there also. Let me know please so I can be of any help you may need.

My Hoover Windtunnel Ultra U6425-900 began shutting off after a few minutes of vacuuming. The time interval became shorter and shorter. If I leave it sit a while, it will start again. This does not happen when I used the attachments - only with the floor brushes. The switch has recently been replaced and the whole vacuum serviced by a Hoover dealer about a year ago. I have been told by a local repair shop(not a Hoover dealer) that it is the motor, there is nothing to do other than replace t

My electrolux oxygen vacuum cleaner shut off and will not turn back on. It's less than a year old, but I bought it off Craig's list--they were the orginal owner and they said they bought it in May of 2008. I've only used it a few times and it worked fine except for the last time when it suddenly just shut off. I thought maybe it had come unplugged and I didn't really worry about it because I was finished vacuuming. But, I went to use it tonight and it would not turn on at all--no lights, nothing

Hello, I have a problem with my Eureka Powerline bagged upright vacuum. It has a 12 amp motor and is model #4352, Type D. It was probably bought new in 1998. My problem is, while vacuuming today the motor seemed to slow down all of the sudden and then began smelling like burning rubber. I shut the vacuum off to check for blockages but could not find anything blocked. When I then turned it on again it runs but seems to only be running at 1/2 the motor speed and still has the rubber buring smell.
It sounds like a rubber sealing in the motor has come loose and is being constantly rubbed against the walls of the motor with would cause the smell and loss of motor speed caused by the fricton of rubber against the rod so if you can get to the moto ... Vacuums
My favorite vacuum in the world it is the Hoover Tempo 3.1 peak HP canister vacuum. I was using it as usual and it just shut off and it will not turn back on. Can this be fixed?
I have Hoover Widepath Bagless 12 Amp Windtunnel vacuum. Yesterday I was vacuuming and smelled smoke and it shut itself off. Today I cleaned out the filters (they weren't bad) made sure nothing was obstructing the hoses or the spinning brush part. It turned on for 1 second, smells like smoke somewhere from the bottom and now won't turn back on so I don't know if anything is spinning or not. What can I do to fix this myself?
Hi There,\015\012\015\012When a vacuum cleaner smokes, it is usually only one of two possible problems.\015\012\015\012It could either be that your motor burned up, or that your belts burned. The belts on this particular mod ... Hoover Self-Propelled WindTunnel Bagless Upright VacuumVacuum
On our Hoover U6445-900 (Mach 6.9) we replaced the small belt that goes to beater brushes in front of unit. Upon starting, the Hoover quickly got hot and smoky. We shut it off and looked things over carefully, but the second try also resulted in friction heat on the belt. Now it appears the belt may have stretched due to heat and the brushes won't spin. Any ideas?
Are you sure you purchased the right size belt..the friction you speak of is usually caused by a belt not being the right tightness or a jammed beater brush ... Hoover U6446-900 WindTunnel Bagged Upright Vacuum
I have a hoover windtunnel upright vacuum, It will not shut off and I have to unplug it to do so. If I take apart the upper handle and manually flip the internal switch it works just fine, only when using the external switch on the handle, wont shut off.
This is a common problem with this machine. The switch has too much resistance to be turned on and off with the switch button and rod. If you put in a new switch, ( # 28161075 ), your problem should be fixed. ... Vacuums

I forgot to replace the vacuum cleaning bag in my Hoover Wind Tunnel Supreme Mach 3.3! It overheated and turned off. I spent all afternoon cleaning the dirt out of the inside, filters, etc. It still overheats when used over 1 minute. Do I need to buy a new vacuum?
My hoover vacuum runs for about 10-15 minutes then the saftey feature shuts it off(overheat?). i have taking it apart a cleaned it with no results, added new bag also. after an hour it cools down and works again. do i just need a new vacuum?
Do you have suction through the tools? Does it look like it picks up when it runs? The machine could be clogged and that would cause the problem, but unfortunately the sensor that shuts the machine off could be bad if the machine isnt clogged. Its no ...

Hoover Vacuum My Hoover cannister model s3614 "runabout powermax" suddenly lost power to the agitator roller in the rug brush. Where the wire cord enters the power brush, the covering has rubbed off exposing the wires which are not bare but still have their own covering. For a while the power came and went as I manipulated the wires but finally died. Is this something I can fix myself or is it going to be an expensive professional repair? (Warrantee has elapsed.) Thanks.

Check the inlet down by the brush roll to make sure it isn't clogged. If not and the hose isn't clogged, then probably the thermo protector (part #28382093) maybe bad. It is mounted near the motor.
