I am guessing it over heats easily and a thermal device turns it off
4 March 2015
Summary: Runs for about 10 minutes then stops. I am guessing it over heats easily and a thermal device turns it off. I waited too long to return and am stuck with it. Sending it back properly packed would be a big hassle.
Poor Product with poor service...a good chance of wasting your money

Summary: Have had this product since march 2014. It no longer works after limited and light work. The power button flashes and it just turns itself off. It is the very same problem as sooo many other who have been unfortunate enough to order this vacuum. Do not purchase this.
Deceptive, Deceptive, Deceptive - Shocked to find a Hoover Vac W/Out Attachments & Neither Hoover or Amazon Would Provide!!
17 November 2013
Summary: I'm totally infuriated about this purchase. I don't understand all the great reviews. Why? NO ATTACHMENTS and that should have been spelled out, not deceptively concealed. I want to know what all these 5 star reviewers do to clean even wemi-thoroughly without attachments??? Really. What do you do?
Summary: I have never written a review of anything before this. I bought this model because it was one of the highest rated vacuums for pet hair. It does have good suction, but the beater gets clogged every time I vacuum. I spend 10 minutes cleaning the pet hair (three long-haired dogs) from the roller.
Summary: I've had this product for three months and it will no longer work. The minute you release the handle, the "bag full" light illuminates. I have changed the bag, checked everything carefully and found that nothing helps. I called Hoover and they deny there are any problems.
Summary: DECEPTION - When I placed this order I thought I was getting the "Hoover Platinum Lightweight Vacuum with canister" the reason I thought this was because included in the package deal was filters for the canister.
Summary: I used this vacuum cleaner once after getting it from Amazon, and it worked fine the first time we used it. The next time we tried to use it, it wouldn't start. After calling up Hoover and being so instructed, I took it to our only local Hoover-approved repair center, Sears, almost three weeks ago.
Summary: I bought this vacuum based on the reputation of the brand - how could a Hoover vacuum be anything but great, right? Well this is the worst vacuum cleaner I have ever used. It does not pick up dirt.
Summary: This product also has a similar product but with additional features. Hoover Platinum Collection Upright/Canister Vacuum(UH30010COM). That one comes with a canister. Canister is not sold seperately. so if you are thinking of buying this product , you might want to buy one with the canister.
