Genie hoover not switching on
Hetty hoover not working. It was working ok until I opened it up to search the bag for a missing jigsaw piece and I put it all back and I hoovered the mess on the floor, then switched off and switched on and hoover would not work? Is there a cut off button on Hetty hoovers?
Know cut off switch, its just not getting power ? 2 things its ether at the wall plug or in side the unit. I have never found a fuse in side them , so it may be just a lose wire did you try other plugs in the house . good luck DFD ... Henry Numatic "" Canister Vacuum
My vax power 8, 2200 watts 300 air watts 4L capacity upright Hoover is brand new, I emptied out the dust/dirt collecter and cleaned the motor filter yesterday for the first time, i switched it on and all fine, the brush is spinning and the hose is sucking, put the Hoover to work it's fine for about 30 seconds then then suction stops and its dead it won't collect no more, so switched off taken apart again and the motor filter is blocked and full of dust, so I unblocked it, do the same process aga
I had the same problem. It looks like the seal on the lid on the bottom of the cylinder has fallen out when it was emptied. There is no longer a proper vacuum being created so you don't get the cyclone effect and the dirt doesn't collect where its su ... Vacuums

Hoover Windtunnel On/Off switch will not turn Off...Switch seems to work O.K. when pressed directly but not with handle switch...It will turn on but not off..Cam seems to be intact on switch actuator..How does switch come out? Thanx
Take the handle off, then remove the tool holder, then you can get to the switch. Just has tabs on each side of switch, depress them and push it out. These switches will do this after awhile, replacing them is usually the way to correct the problem ... Hoover U6437-900 / U6439-900 Windtunnel Bagged Upright Vacuum
My Miele vacuum cleaner has the red triangle light on and keeps switching on and off. Is it broken? have been hoovering upstairs and I noticed the hoover had the red triangle light on. I changed the hoover bag but it still kept going on and off. Is this an overheating problem or is the hoover on the way out?

Hoover Upright Vacuum model U5470-900 - The On/Off switch on the handle does not properly engage the power switch deeper in the handle assembly. It appears to ride over the lower switch and doesn't engage it to operate it. If I play with it, I can get it to maybe turn on the vacuum, but, then the upper handle switch won't turn it off. Our current workaround is to use the power cord for on/off operation.

I have a Hoover Elite Rewind model #uh71009. We moved recently and it was jostled around and the red power switch popped out. I put it back in but it's stuck; it stays either left or right, it doesnt move back and forth. It appears there may be another piece missing from the power switch...all I have is the red switch and a tiny cylindrical metal tube with a spring on one end. This piece fits into the hole on the red switch. Inside the vacuum itself where this goes, there is quite a large cavity
When i switch my henry hoover on it works fine for exactly 50 seconds then switches of for approx same time then comes alive again for 50 secs and so on...driving me nuts.
My Hoover Windtunnel Ultra U6425-900 began shutting off after a few minutes of vacuuming. The time interval became shorter and shorter. If I leave it sit a while, it will start again. This does not happen when I used the attachments - only with the floor brushes. The switch has recently been replaced and the whole vacuum serviced by a Hoover dealer about a year ago. I have been told by a local repair shop(not a Hoover dealer) that it is the motor, there is nothing to do other than replace t

Hi The band snapped the other day on my Vax Swift Turbo upright hoover and i got a new band from a Hoover repair centre. (Im assuming the bloke sold me the correct band). Was tight to go on. And it seemed ok. However, after switching on the band snapped immediately. Kinda burnt as well (at the point it snapped). Any ideas as to what the problem is here? The hoover is roughly 2 years old and used around 3 times per week. thanks Mike

The switch on our Hoover Windtunnel vacuum cleaner is not working. I have located the replacement part on your website...part#Ho-28161067, I've removed the wires from the switch. Is there any trick to actually removing and replacing the switch itself? It seems to be in there rather tight.
No, follow the directions to replacing the switch and you should be good. if you got the kit then splice the wires and replace them with the wires profied and the wire nuts, you should be good. ... Vacuums
Hoover on off switch won't turn off. I have to unplug the vacuum to stop it. I have dismantled the handle and now I can't get the inditation in the handle to fit over the little silver knob. I saw there was an on/off switch under the handle that is controlled by a piece of the handle. #1 question for the manufacturer is why don't they put the switch on the outside instead of having gimicks that turn it on and off... arghhhhhhhh
Don't know what model you have, but sounds like you will need to replace the switch. As far as your question, you will have to contact the manufacture for an answer. We only provide solutions to your problem and a model number would have helped. ... Vacuums

I have a hoover windtunnel upright vacuum, It will not shut off and I have to unplug it to do so. If I take apart the upper handle and manually flip the internal switch it works just fine, only when using the external switch on the handle, wont shut off.
This is a common problem with this machine. The switch has too much resistance to be turned on and off with the switch button and rod. If you put in a new switch, ( # 28161075 ), your problem should be fixed. ... Vacuums
