Having problems with your Vacuums ?
Mach 5 hoover turns off
\015 I have a hoover mach 5 bagless that I purchased last year. Recenlty it began to shut off after a short amount of use. At first I thougth it was a short, but after awhile it will start again only to shut off a few minutes later. Is it overheating? If so is it something that can be fixed or am I out of luck.\015
Just got a solution off another website. There is a pre motor filter about the dust collection container. I opened mine and it was very dirty. I washed the filter and you are supposed to let it dry out for 24 hours. Hopefully this will work. Another guy said it worked for him.

Hoover Mach 6 U5198-900 vacuum roller brush won't turn. I had opened the bottom to clean hair off the roller. the belts are not broken. When I closed it and turned it on, now the roller brush won't turn. I can push and turn it by hand, but not easily. Then I noticed the brush on/off switch is turned off, but when I step on it, it won't turn on. I was thinking I let something get out of place when I opened the bottom, but can't see what.

My hoover mach 5 stopped during use and will now not turn on
If the machine overheats, a breaker trips. Most breakers reset themselves after they cool off. You may have a manual reset button to push on your model. The machine will overheat if the bag is too full, or if the exhaust port is clogged. The rese ... Hoover Commercial C1660-900 Bagless Upright Cyclonic Vacuum

The brush rollers on my hoover mach 5 won't turn. I've cleaned everything and checked the belts and everything checks out fine. I had the vacuum for about a year.
I had the same problem. The problem is the small v-belt for the roller brush (Hoover part# 38528034). Although it looks in good shape, it's been stretched too large for the idler to keep good tension. The tension on that belt varies with the ... Hoover Vacuums

Hoover Mach 5 turns off after 5 minutes of using. Can you advise the problem?
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

While vacuuming with my hoover mach 5 it all the sudden shut down
Hi, If it is warm to the touch, and it just shut down all of a sudden, I would say that the motor has an internal over load switch that is normally closed, and opened to stop from burning this vac out. It is a built-in safety. I would look at the rol ... Vacuums

Hoover WindTunnel S3765. The motor spins and the belt turns when I turn the brushes on, and the brushes will spin. The problem is that when I do this on carpet, the brushes stop spinning. As soon as I pull the "head" off the carpet, the brushes spin again. It's almost as if the vacuum suction is too great. I took the head apart and watched the motor turn the metal spindle that the belt rests on, and the belt turns as well.
