My Hoover Windtunnel cuts off after using it for a few minutes. After an hour or so, I can turn it back on again. This keeps happening every time I use it. This is my third one. I have taken the other two back to Target for the same problem and they have exchanged them.


Yes this machine has a thermal protector in it to shut off the machine if it gets to hot, this is normal. if there is no clogs in the hoses or in the machine then you will need to wash the filter at the top of the machine. you will have to remove the ...

I just bought a Hoover Platinum Collection MaxExtract Carpet Cleaner (Model No. F8100900). This is the first time I've used it and got half way through one room and the unit cut off and has no power at all. No lights anywhere. On/Off button is inoperable. I checked the outlet and it's still operating so it's not a circuit breaker issue. The problem appears to be with the machine. Has anyone heard of this happening this quickly? Is there a reset button on the machine>

I have the same problem as discussed above. My Hoover Pet Cyclonic upright stops working while using it. The bottom feels hot when this happens. When it first occurred, I emptied the canister and even tried a different plug. It did not turn back on for over an hour. When it did turn back on, it would die again after about 3-5 minutes of use. I don't know what else to try. I have washed the secondary filters, let them air dry and replaced them and this did not help the problem. My friend,

I've recently bought a hitachi HDR505 & haven't had a problem using it with an indoor ariel other than the fact in bad weather conditions there have been problems with the signals.

Hi My hoover will work for about 1 minute (suction seems fine ) and is then cutting out-clearly over-heating.I cannot find the manual -can you suggest possible solutions.Thanks

My brand-new Hoover Windtunnel T-Series Pet Rewind Bagless vac simply shut off while I was using it and now I can't get it to turn back on. I've emptied the dirt collection bin and let the unit sit unplugged for 30 minutes to reset the Thermal Protector as per the manual. I've even tried a few different outlets just in case a fuse got tripped, but the vac still won't turn on. What happened? Do I need to return this vac to the store? I just bought it 5 hours ago.

Filter I bought this Hoover a few years ago-- just now about to use it first time. I cannot find my user's manual and don't know how to change the filter-- or to clean it or whatever I am supposed to do with it. Also, there is a handle on one side of the unit that seems to be attached to an empty chamber or canister kind of thing. It looks like it should pull out, but it does not budge. I really would like to have a manual, but can't seem to find one. Is there a similar model that is still

5 minutes everytime? If so, raise brush all the way, and vacuum next to nothing. in fact, tilt vac up so the brush touches nothing. wait 5 minutes. If it doesn't shut off, your brush is set too high. if it does, the motor is over heating. make sure b ... Hoover U5194-900 Mach5 Multi-Chamber Cyclonic Vacuum Cleaner Bagless Vacuum

Burned out The best way for me to describe the problem is to post reviews I made on Amazon.com, which is where I purchased them. ________________ Based on my past experience, I bought another 6 months ago. I live in a very tiny 2 room apartment and do not vacuum lots of dirt. I noticed this new vac getting very hot to the touch where the motor is located with only a few minutes of use. Today it just STOPPED. When I felt the canister, it was HOT. It obviously has burned out. Upon closer inspect

I have a new Hoover Dual V steam vac that I bought from a neighbor who only used it once. I have only used it once since then and it worked great. This time, because I am pregnant, I bought some non-toxic cleaner that was much thicker than the very watery Hoover soap. This vac has a wash option and a rinse option. The rinse option works (sprays and sucks properly), but the wash cycle doesn't at all-neither soap nor water comes out. Nothing comes out, but it still sucks. I took everything o

I have a Hoover Wind Tunnel that has been used twice both times at Christmas to pick up pine needles. It really has never been used because my cleaning ladies come every week and use their own machine. The problem I have is that the machine just doesn't pick up anything. Can you help. It's not overuse that is the problem!


You may have the ductwork of the cleaner plugged up with the pine needles. First, unplug the hose from the cleaner and find if you have suction into the bag. If so, check the hose and ducts for blockage from the pine needles. ... Vacuums

I have a Zanussi 1700W bagless upright vacuum cleaner which keeps cutting out after about 5/10 mins use. I had to replace the rubber drive belt which snapped not long after purchasing and it was fine for a while, but now its just keeps cutting out after a small amount of use. Nothing wrong with belt which is still intact so we don't know what the problem is. It's a great cleaner otherwise - but it's driving us mad!! Please help!

My 4870 K Boss is 2 years old. I have replaced belts & filters in the specified intervals. This last time I replaced the belt after a year, it shredded 3 of them on the outside edge of the belt in about 5 minutes of use. I ordered a new brush roller & heavy duty belt which I installed. It began shredding the belt in less than 5 minutes of use. What is your suggestion? Is this a known problem with this model? Eureka says no and is not standing behind it.


The only reason why it would be shredding the belt is if the pulleys were not lined up correctly. Check the allignement of the belt to make sure there is nothing kepping the pulleys from being in line. The other thing that it could be is if the rolle ... Vacuums

Kirby Sentria I bought my kirby sentria just before we were to move house and although I have the instructions somewhere, they will be boxed up and I so want to clean the carpets before I move. Problem is that I don't know whether the belt should be on or off when using the big silver front with the Kirby insignia on it. I know that the green light should come on when it is working properly and it does not, so I am doing something wrong. I can attach the attachments no problem but I want to use
