Having problems with your Vacuums ?

While vacuuming it gets hot and shuts down

\015 I will be vacuuming just a little and it gets hot and stops working.\015

Answers :

It's probably just overheating. You have to take the vacuum apart and clean it thoroughly. There is probably a "plug" of dirt/hair/gunk clogging a hose.

I have had cheap vacuums that last years as long as I clean them regularly.

The handle for my Eureka 5993 AVZ was getting very hot when used. Finally, the wires around the switch melted and now the vacuum will not work. What is wrong? Is the switch bad? The wires only melted in the immediate vicinity of the three-prong switch. Nothing else appears to be wrong; the vacuum worked fine when it was running - except for the handle getting hot.

Miele Cat & Dog vacuum gets VERY hot and is VERY loud. Hose has no restrictions and I have changed the dust compartment (motor) filter and the exhaust filter. It still gets hot when I run it with the top open and all filters removed, so I'm guessing the problem is with the motor. Should I be going into the motor compartment? If so, what am I looking for?

I have a Harmony vacuum that's a couple years old. I recently sucked a fair amount of dog hair into it and was unaware something was amiss since the things so quiet.
