Having problems with your Vacuums ?

The vac just goes red hot and switchs itself off no idea why. alyx pets 2000w is the model of the vac.


Answers :

Its activated its thermal cut off. Check the filters - if the paper pleated cone filter is blocked throughly tap it gently to loosen dirt before washing it completely and drying it in a low temp tumble dryer (put it in a pillow case with a towel inside the pillowcase to stop it knocking off the sides in the dryer.) Also check the main dust channels behind the bin and also behind the beater bar as it may well be clogged. Then reinstall everything and check again.

Can't find info for hoover steam vac spin scrub model # F5905900 on Hoover website, doesn't show that model number at all...looking for mesh (kind of cone/cylinder shape) that goes in dirty water tank (I think) and also the tool (wand) that slides into front to clean it out. It doesn't pull all the water up very well and the filter has been missing for some time. I don't know if that has anything to do with it or not. As far as the wand tool goes, I have taken the cover off at this point and

Hoover F5809 Hello, I seen a few of your post and was hoping you could help me. I just became a member today. My sister gave me her old Hoover Steam Vac-Model F5809. This thing is so dirty and clogged because my sister has pets. So far I've gotten it all taken apart to clean it. I'm not a newbie and taking apart and fixing things. I have fixed things like microwaves, washers, dryers, dishwashers (still learning about TV's-very hard, hehe). Anyway, I got what I believe to be the motor cover off.
