yes this machine has a thermal protector in it to shut off the machine\015\012if it gets to hot, this is normal. if there is no clogs in the hoses or\015\012in the machine then you will need to wash the filter at the top of the\015\012machine. you will have to remove the dirt cup and at the top you should\015\012see a half moon orange, well inside of this piece is the washable\015\012filter, clean and let it dry completly before putting back into\015\012machine. if this gets dirty and has not been cleaned, you can lose alot\015\012of suction. in some cases if this filter is not cleaned it can cause\015\012the machine to overheat so bad that it can damage the motor.
I had same problem. Turned out to be the filter that sits above the waste cannister. Remove the waste cannister. There is a little orange lever that releases the filter. It was caked with dirt not allowing any air flow causing the motor to overheat.

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

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.

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.
