20 Most Recent Dirt Devil Hoover Uh70085 Pet Cyclonic? Upright Vacuum Questions & Answers


The vacuum is probably getting hot and the thermal sensor in the motor is shutting it off and then allowing it to come back on after it cools down. You mentioned replacing the secondary filters, replace the exhaust filter too.
If replacing all the filters did not solve it you may have a clog or restriction somewhere causing the loss of suction and the overheating.

If the motor stopped running, it most likely did because it was not being cooled, becuause something was stopping up the air flow. If you have cleaned the secondary filter out and it still stops while running, then remove the exhaust filter cartridge and try it then. If it does not stop running now, then the problem is the previous models like this had a foam filter as the exhaust filter, not a heppa cartridge filter. You will not hurt the machine by running it without the heppa cartridge. Cut a foam filter to fit to replace it. I do not think Hoover knows this yet.

I have a customer working on this problem today (Sept 2010) I have repaired machines for 30 years. This filter is meant to just catch the tiny particles from getting back into the air. However, it worked fine on the previous machines with the foam filter here instead of this Heppa cartridge.

See if you can find a generic brand. Had the same problem with mine but found one at kmart that worked. Or try finding it on the internet.

Sure, take the machine apart. Cut off the bad part of wire. Strip insulation to same as what's inside. Remove old original & wire in the new.

I know of no "resart button"

The reset button (switch) is defective or could be a thermal circuit breaker that has opened
