The Hoover U6425-900 is the company's self-propelled WindTunnel machine. It can clean carpeted and uncovered floors and has a power tool that can vacuum upholstery, stairs or other hard-to-reach areas. If the machine won't turn on it is likely because the thermal protector is activated. The thermal protector shuts the machine off once it reaches temperatures that could damage components. Letting the machine cool off will allow you to restart it, but fixing the root issue of the overheating will prevent it from happening again.
