Having problems with your Hoover U5780-900 Windtunnel Cyclonic Bagless UprightVacuum ?

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.

Answers :

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 dirt cup and at the top you should see a half moon orange, well inside of this piece is the washable filter, clean and let it dry completly before putting back into machine. if this gets dirty and has not been cleaned, you can lose alot of suction. in some cases if this filter is not cleaned it can cause the machine to overheat so bad that it can damage the motor.
There is a filter located above the pop-out canister. First remove the canister. There are directions on a sticker (inside the canister area) that you can see once the canister is removed. The filter pops out. Clean the foam insert as well as the other part (you should be able to see through the mesh material). Our vac ran like new afterwards. It had a ton more suction.

Hi, this is our third Dyson DC-16.. the Trigger was shorting out on the first two.. Now we have the third one for about a year.. on charge when not using it.. don't use it every day, but for quick pickups only.. Just how long should the battery last? I was sent a new charger, didn't help.. it just won't hold the charge even tho two green lights are solid, but one red light does show up..

How are you charging your battery? Every battery has a memory. If you dont let it die the first come times then charge to full the battery will assume 40% is 100%. ... Dyson DC16 Root 6 Bagless Handheld Cyclonic Vacuum

Last year my wife and I bought a new Dirt Devil Reaction All Surface vaccuum cleaner to replace the older Platinum Force. After using it a couple of times the new one gets clogged with dog hair easily and shuts down. I cleaned it out completely including the hepa filter but it will not handle the dog hair. The old one never had a problem and still works. We went back to using the old vaccuum cleaner because we can not find the receipt and had not registered the new one and are stuck with a new 1

Hi, A few days ago I bought a Philips hairdryer (HP4935/22) & have used it only twice. Somehow when I used it this morning some of my hair got caught in the filter at the back of the dryer & the motor slowed down & I think overheated & stopped. Normally the filters come off but I don't think this one does. I haven't turned it back on so as not to possibly damage it even more. I am quite upset as I really love this hairdryer. It's quiet, light, small, powerful & does the job brilliantly. I h

I am putting my bissel 8910 back together and behind the motor there is a black 3-way tubing connector.

My Dyson DC07 has recently been service and was making a clattering noise and very hard to push. We have taken it back and he has changed the clutch mechanism under the base which has solved the clattering, but it is still really hard to push because of the suction. It is even lifting the carpet in one room. Can you tell me what the possible reasons for this could be? One thought we had was that the little rubber wheels on the bottom cover could have worn so the hoover is closer to the floor

My dyson has two gears as it were! One for normal suction and the other for deeper cleaning. There used to be a real difference in the performance between the two options, also the noise changed when you swithched from one to the other. This no longer occurs. I have taken it apart according to your instruction, cleaned all the various bits but still no luck. The cat fur is still clearly visible despite my best efforts. Can you please help!!!!
