Having problems with your Hoover F6212-900 / F6215-900 SteamVac Agility Upright Vacuum ?

Hose breakage The lower hose broke in half, which shot it's pickup ability. Is this a common problem? We've never done any crazy moves with it, just regular cleaning. Is there any prevention or do I need to shell out $20 regularly to replace the hose?


Answers :

The same thing happened to me last week. The inner hose does not have enough "extra" play so if you bend the handle down too low to reach under a dresser or bed the lower inner plastic hose snaps. I brought mine in to be repaired since it's under warranty. I did a long exhaustive search and came across this website1.gif https://www.mdappliance.com that has Hoover Agility replacement hoses and their prices are the best I have found so far. The smaller inner hose (part number 90001080) is only $9.99 (compared to $13.99 & $19.99) and the external hose attachment (part number 91001004) is only $25.99 (compared to $39.95). I specifically asked and the parts are brand new... not refurbished or used. Their phone1.gif number is 866-914-1252. Just in case you're wondering, I'm not a rep for the company nor do I have any affiliation with them. I just placed an order for the hose attacment and came across this webpage1.gif and figured I'd add my 2 cents. Hope this info is helpful. I tried to make it as complete as possible.

Goiod luck.

PS: They also offer a flat rate shipping fee of $7.95 regardless of what you order. No sales tax unles you're in Ohio. :)

The easiest way to fix the problem is to buy a roll of self sealing silicone tape. About $7 at most hardware stores. Take the body of the vacuum apart by removing all screws, including the four underneath on the round plate that holds the two top parts together. Remove the lower return hose by gently prying it off with a flat blade screwdriver. Be careful to turn the screwdriver sideways, like you're driving a screw. You don't have to turn it much, as the plastic nub that holds the hose on is pretty low profile. I was able to wiggle it off with minimal effort. Dry the hose off, clean it, then start wrapping the silicon tape around the hose from one end to the other. Start up on the plastic fitting so you get a good seal. Go all the way to the other plastic fitting, then keep wrapping all the way back to the other end. Stretch the tape as you go. Reinstall, and you're ready to go in half an hour plus the time it takes to find the tape. Works great.

Otherwise, go to Hoover.com and order part #90001080, pay $10 plus $5 shipping and wait a week.

Good luck

The power head of my DC 21 keeps cutting off as soon as I start moving the hose around. The only way to get it going again is to step on the main switch on the canister, then the whole cycle of off and on starts again. I have replaced the entire power head and tested the continuity of all the wires in the hose and they are good. The repair shop says the PCB is bad but can not get one. What can I do ?


Not much. my only suggestion is to dig through the internet and try and find that pcb it may take awhile but it would be worth a shot. if you dont think you can make the repair take it to repair shop with new pcb and let them do it. ... Dyson Genuine DC-21 "Stowaway" Spare HEPA Filter, Dyson

I also have a Hoover upright and I need to replace the electrical cord. I have dimantled the back, where the tools are stored, and the hose. I still cannot find the screws or whatever, to get to the area behind the cord, so I can replace it. I think I will have to take off the bottom too. Has anyone out there tried to do this? It seems crazy. This machine works great so I hope I can also put it back together. Thanks for the help.

DC25 telescoping handle does not seat tightly. When pulling the vac back it unseats about 2 inches. This prevents the hose from engaging securely in the base and suction is affected.
