Having problems with your Hoover S2220 Flair Bagless Upright Vacuum ?

Flair motor shorting out?

\015 My 4-month-old Hoover Flair exhibits an intermittent failure: after running for 30 minutes or so, the motor will no longer switch on. Toggling the switch all the way forward turns on the brush, which spins away merrily, but in both the middle ("bare floor") and forward ("carpet") position, no motor, and thus no suction.As noted, this problem is intermittent and if I let the Flair sit for a few days, it seems to restore function, but only very briefly. Could this be heat-related? Is there perhaps some sort of "cut-off" in the design which disables the motor if it seems to be running hot?I should note that Hoover "support" did not respond at all to my email inquiry well over a week ago, so unless I\015\012can get the Flair running reliably in fairly short order, back it will\015\012go. I will then shop for a product whose manufacturer actually supports\015\012it.Thanks for any assistance you can provide.\015

Answers :

There's a thermal cut-off when the unit has overheated. Mine does this quite often and I remedy it by emptying the canister and making sure the filter is clean, especially of lint and things that prevent good air flow.

DT 1300 As I am vacuuming the motor seems to fade in and out and sometimes stops running for a few seconds and then resumes. If I move the hose a bit near the vacuum end, it runs smoothly again.
