Having problems with your Hoover SteamVac F5914-900 SpinScrub Upright Vacuum ?

My Hoover Steam vac has also stopped sucking... I have pulled it apart to clean it. Is there a way to take the bristles off to clean them as well as are there any other parts that could be the problem?

Answers :

Based on your description, poor suction is related to only a few things
  • Check filter inside lower tank
  • \015\012
  • Check the lower tank lid to be on properly
  • \015\012
  • look for the front panel duct (the part that comes off the lower tank for the accessory hose). needs to be on for floor suction.
\015\012The brushes do come off the machine for cleaning, however you can also remove them from the clear casing, but the casing is very fragile and may break the locking tabs

My Dyson Animal is not picking up very well in the drive position. With the hose the pick up is still very good. I have had it for 2 yrs now with very little problems. I have cleaned out all areas etc pipes, the brush underneath and cant find any blockages. The noise of the dyson is the same as usual. Could you tell me if there is a part that it sounds like it needs?

It starting to put out a hot type smell. I have tried cleaning the filters real well and even tried to see if there was problem with the ozone filter. We have checked and could not find a jam. I know the hose has excellent suction. The vacumn works but the intelliclean sensors will not. It only takes about 15 seconds or so for the odor to start. Then it gets real strong and it makes my eyes water

Hi,The hot smell could be from the belt or the motor. Turn it on for a moment, turn it off, then flip it on its side and smell the belt that drives the brush. If that is where the smell is coming from, then your belt is burning up. ... Kenmore Progressive Bagless Upright with Inteli-Clean SystemVacuum

Hello, could you help please. I have a Bissel ProHeat 9400-M. The water remains in the bladder when the machine is on, in other words nothing happens and I cannot clean with it. Inside the tank the small flap is in the open position. I have always used your products although I did run the Bissell over an area that had been cleaned with another product. Could that have caused the problem by blocking it somewhere? I have cleaned everything and cannot see a blockage. Thank you for your help.

Roomba Stops I've had a Roomba for about 2 months. Lately, it runs for about 45 secs, then stops, makes a two-tone (descending) sound, and flashes the CLEAN button while the STATUS button is red.

I cleaned all that I could., the brushes, the pins on the sides and all that and it still gives the same problem..Any other fix?

My Bernina 807 set on min. speed takes off fast, doesn't go slow at all, although there is a difference in the slow speed setting and high speed setting if I switch from one to the other while stitching. The machine is well oiled and goes well apart from this. I would like min. speed to start smoothly and slowly. I have read it could be capacitor in foot, but DH says it does not look burnt out. Would it help my problem to remove it? thank you, Barbara

Vaccum is making a loud high pitched sound, doesn't work well through the hose or the floor piece and shuts its self off after about 5 minutes. I have cleaned the entire vacuum out several times but this problem persists. Usually after I clean it, it'll work for a couple months, not this time. Vacuum is only 2 years old, is this typical?

Our problem with our Rainbow E Series is that it has sucked water up and blown it out through the lower part of the hepa filter, making the filter wet and dirty. This had happened before and the repair shop did not see any problems with the machine, so we replaced the filter and were very carful not to overfill the tank and to change the water often. Now it has happened again and ruined another filter. Do you know what could be causing this issue? Can the filter be cleaned or will a new one be

Recently purchase SC-N500 vacuum cleaner. Worked well only the first 2 times I used it to clean up plaster dust from floor after sanding. Since then it has not worked at all well wiht very poor suction. Fluff gets stuck in the hose and has to be manually removed. Suction power is very poor. I have washed the filter to remove the dust with no difference. Who do I contact in Brisbane to service or assess the problem further.

Low suction I have a Hoover central vacuum system. I've reset the fuse box, checked the fuses, all of the lines are clear and there are no holes for escaped air to travel out. The filter has been cleaned as well. The vac works well with high suction when hooked directly to the unit, however when using any of the indoor connections there is extremely low suction. The machine still turns on so I do not believe it is an electronic issue. I have troubleshooted the issue as best I could and would
