Having problems with your Hoover F5872-900 SteamVac Wet/Dry Vacuum ?

My Hoover stopped sucking! If I use the attachment for stairs that works just fine, but in the upright mode for carpet it won't **** at all.


Answers :

The tube in the power head probably has either a clog or a leak/crack. Since the hose attachment works fine, then the hose should be clear. You may be able to clear it without much difficulty, but replacement should be done at the Hoover shop.

I have an animal dyson. The front nose dives into the carpet when moving the dyson in the forward motion, fine when pulling back. A huge amount of effort is required to move it forward.

I have the same problem with intermitant power, however, it does not make sense that the problem is in the upper powerhead (which is what a repair guy told me) because-- when I use the other attachements it is fine. The problem only occurs when I use the carpet (big)attachment so that the roller will not turn. Couldn't it just be in the area where the bottom of the handle attaches into the carpet attachment?

If voltage is there and the beater/roller doesn't run, the proble ... Kenmore 23612 Progressive PowerMate Bagged Canister Vacuum

On my hover U6616-900 the self propell work fine on the med setting on med height carpet, but when I go to low height carpet and height set on med the self propell does not pull the vacuum and it is hard to push. Also if I raise the height to the highest setting the self propell works correctly and appears to clen. Any ideas? S/N 090400184555, think this vacuum is maybe 5 years old and my wife uses it lots.
