I have a old nilfisk GM 90. Still going very well, but it fell last week and the handle on the top broke off. I would be delighted to have this repaired, so I hope I can still get spare parts for these wonderful hoovers. Eileen Corcoran

Parts replacement We have a Hoover Steam Vac that has a broken part #10 in your picture or Part # 37271035. Does this part cover the whole top section of the Vac? Is it hard to replace? Where can you get the best prices on Hoover parts? I have been on Hoovers website and they don't even recognize this Steam Vac. which is hard to believe they don't even recognize their own unit? Thanks Ray

No Suction I have a dc18 dyson and it had lost suction from the main hoover and the hose part. If you remove the dust collection part there is suction from the hole behind that part. I have cleaned all part to this hoover but the problem is still there. Any help would be apprieciated. Thanks

I have a yellowMiele Vacuum,model=Electronic Air Clean Plus S3121. On the main body the part that the pipe/nozzle clicks into has a piece that has snapped off. I can see this by lifting the lid and the black plastic piece that is screwed to the inside of the lid has a piece chipped of it which means that when the nozzle is clicked into place it is completely loose. There is a black piece that clicks into the inside of the hoover into this broken part which is still ok so at the moment by linin

Burned smell hi, I have used my hoover 4 times and is starting to smell as something burned, I checked the troobleshouting part of the owner manual and it says that check the belt, I already did that and everything is ok I used the hoover again and still smelling bad and start to work very slow I better shut off it.. what could I do??
If the motor slowed down this would indicate a bad motor. not cost effective on this model to replace unless under warranty. it is not uncommon these days to see a motor go bad every now and then.\015\012\015\012What are the first 4 digit ... Hoover U5507900 Elite Rewind Bagless Upright Vacuum
Hoover S3765 I have a Hoover S3765 (serial # 040600024465) and the unit stops working for no apparent reason. The light on top of the unit goes off when it shuts down, so I don't believe it's a problem between the hose, the tube and the floor unit. Sometimes I have to let it sit for over one hour before it will come back on. I've tried different electrical plugs too. Still won't turn on. Any ideas or suggestions? Thanks
If you light and nozzle motor both go off at the same time, you might have a bad power cord. Mine had this problem which I could verify by jiggling/twisting the cord near the strain relief on the nozzle. It would go on and off as I did this. ... Hoover S3765-040 WindTunnel Bagless Canister Vacuum
I have a Hoover Steam Vac All Terran floor shampooer, I have taken apart the brushes and other parts to make sure there are no clogs, but it still is not spinning. What else can I do? the Motor is working fine. and the suction is fine too.
There may be some substances such as dust or sand stuck in the spinning parts of the wheel. The substances are restricting the mechanism to work properly and causing blockage in the rotating causing your problem. Cleaning every part of the motor's ro ... Vacuums
My hoover windtunnel u6323-930 has dust leaking into air when unit is on. i think it is in the housing I cannot see and I need ti know how to take apart to determine which part i need to order thanks David Macali
You will just have to start taking the base aprt until you can get the motor, Just remember how it was so you can put it back together correctly again. When you have the motor off, look at the fan chamber, you probably have a crack or hole in it. ... Hoover Vacuums
HI, my motorized brush barely turns.It makes a hot rubber smell. I took apart and noticed the spindle the belt turns on discolored from heat. Cleaned it, but still no turning of the brush.The vac is a hoover wind tunnel. As it moved accidentally touched the belt/ spindle and burned my hand a little. Very hot in area. Bright spark from motor noted. Was careful not to touch that part!
That means that the belt is stretched and it is slipping on the motor shaft, that is why it is hot and smells like burning rubber. You need to replace the belt. Here is the correct belt you need: ... Hoover S3765-040 WindTunnel Bagless Canister Vacuum
I have a hoover f5861-900 steam vac. the trigger mechanism seem to not work anymore. Water dribbles out without using the trigger. Taking the water tank out I can see the rod very slightly moving on the diaphragm. I removed the top part of the vac to hopefully reset the rod connection. But, didn't make any difference. I appreciate any help you can give me. thanks

How do i get the case off the hoover studio 1400w i can find 4 screws but the top will still not separate from the bottom
I cannot get the sprays from either the bottom or the handpieces to work. I only get a short "gurgle" of fluid when I first press the controls. I have cleaned both the top and bottom cap and insert parts, and I have turned the machine off and on numerous times, have allowed it several minutes to warm up. But still no luck.

I have a Hoover power max self propelled vacuum. The belt that goes to the self propelled part keeps slipping off. I've had the belt replaced, but the problem persists. What can be wrong? I've taken it to a Sew N Vac repair, but all he did was replace the belt again. And it still has the same problem.
I can guess of one problembelt gets removed when motor is running right?am assuming that belt is fit tightly and fits correctly when motor is in restif so then ur motor is not running at a proper speed which can be a pos ... Vacuums
My sunbeam water cooler model #YLR2-5-67H3 has been sitting unplugged for 3 years. I moved, plugged it in and put a water bottle on top and water went all over the floor. I unplugged it, (read the instructions on the front, duh) and it still leaks on the floor. What should I do? I put it over the sink, emptied it, checked the drain plug, tried running a glass full of tap water through each tap. Only the room temperature one would work.
One of the rubber connecting hoses inside it has dried and aged so the pressure of the water from the bottle made it burst.\012\012\012You will need to open it, find the defective hose and replace it - a 2 hour relatively easy job. The hardest ... Sunbeam Vacuums
I have a Hoover F5411 steamvac Jr spot cleaner and it won't spray and one of the answers was to turn it over and try to turn the impiller to see if it turns. Where is the impille? Is it on the bottom of the top of the steamvac or on the bottom of the part that takes in the recover water?
Belt type Ok, thank you for the help! I did have the top off, but did not know the taking the motor loose trick, thank you for that! Now I have a couple of more questions, and thank you so much for all of the help! I got a belt from sears, & the sales guy sold me an off brand belt. It looks just like the belt that broke, although do you have to force the motor back down into place? I think it may be the wrong belt? I have looked on the Hoover website & they do not even have parts listed fo
The belt number is 91001028. The belt will be snug but not real tight, so the belt you got may not be the right one. Most repair shops for vacuums should have this belt in stock. ... Hoover U8145-900 Savvy Bagless Upright Cyclonic Vacuum
I am using a hoover ultra steam cleaner but the red ball keeps coming to the top . I assume this indicates it is full and ready to empty however it is still empty . The red ball will not stay down in order to operate properly
\015\012Thankyou,\015\012\015\012 The redball indicates that it is full, that is due to the high resistence its suction system is inducing, because it is empty and it still stays up, I would try to turn the power settings a little l ... Hoover SteamVac Carpet/Upholstery Deep Cleaner Vacuum
I have a hoover windtunnel bagless vac that is several years old. the floor vacuum part still works fine, but the handtool attachment has no suction and is useless all of a sudden.
Don't have your model number, but some have a valve down on the noozle part that may be broke. When it is its upright position, the valve won't change over to the hose only position. You would have to remove the top cover to see this. ... Vacuums
I have a Hoover U5111-900 that, every time I attempt to use it, shoots everything it should be sucking up, back out toward my feet. I have replaced the bag, pulled out lots of animal hair and such from the area behind the bag, and taken off all parts able to be removed without a screwdriver and pulled out all chunks of hair, dirt, etc. It still keeps shooting everything it should **** up out the back. Is there something I can remove to get the clog out if that's the problem? I'm scared I wil

Hoover Model U8185-900 beater bar part keeps smoking and burning up We've replaced the part Hoover PCB Display Bridge U8172 three times and the vac beater bar works for about a minute then the part starts to smoke and burns out again. I've taken everything apart but cannot locate anything that would cause this part to burn up. I think if I did not disconnet immediately, he vac would catch my rug on fire. Help? I didn't send back the warranty card, so I can't get any help from Hoover. Any suggest
I'm not sure why this is happening. Perhaps if you would contact Hoover and explain the problem to them such that it appears that there is a safety issue with their product, they might be more cooperative. If that fails, I have had luck writing let ... Hoover U8185-900 Upright Vacuum
