Having problems with your Vacuums ?

Hoover Mach 5 sweeper

\015 Stopped while using it. I checked the cord. Checked the fuse box. Found a clog. Took it apart and removed the clog of hair and carpet fuzz. Still does not work. Is there a fuse in this piece of equipment? Husband "put" the book away. Who knows where. If it has a fuse, where? Thanks\015

Hey all...

\015\012It would shut off after 15 min of use. What is happening is the secondary filters, HEPA and the canister all need to be cleaned. This is vital. What the vacuum repair people are keeping from you is that tidbit of wisdom. This particular vacuum is picky about airflow. Pull the canister, and on the body of the vacuum on top of where the canister sits are the secondary filters. There should be a sticker explaining how to remove them. Clean them throuougly, mine was filthy. Make sure you clean the canister by unlocking it and cleaning out the micro holes and the cone end. Mine was completely plugged. Now brush the dirty side of the HEPA filter with the combo tool. Let the secondary filters dry completely (you can blow dry them on cold) Re-install everything, and the vacuum will run like brand new. I vacuumed the whole house after I completed this maintainence and it works like a champ. Don't return this vac until you clean it completely.

i had the same problem and fixed it using the above instructions.

i overlooked the second filter. it's inside the machine, up above the area where you took the dust canister out.

exactly as you said, it felt brand new.

thank you for your solution

... Hoover Vacuums

On our Hoover U6445-900 (Mach 6.9) we replaced the small belt that goes to beater brushes in front of unit. Upon starting, the Hoover quickly got hot and smoky. We shut it off and looked things over carefully, but the second try also resulted in friction heat on the belt. Now it appears the belt may have stretched due to heat and the brushes won't spin.
