Having problems with your Hoover U6437-900 / U6439-900 Windtunnel Bagged Upright Vacuum ?

Hoover EmPower 4600 keeps blowing circuit breaker. The number of outlets in the house that will allow me to run the vacuum is dropping quickly. It is a 4 year old house and all the circuit breakers are 20 amps. The vacuum only has a 12 amp motor. I am at a loss to solve this problem.

I have the top of the line kenmore canister vacuum. According to the bottom plate the model nimbler is 116.28015700 I was doing the normal vacuuming and the bag full light came on and the vacuum action stropped. There is still power to the mortorized handle and agitator attachment. Is there some type of circuit breaker reset button for the vacuum function? This unit is probably less that two years old and has had very little use

The electricity in the apt attached to my house lost power in two of the walls. It happened when the cleaning ladies I think were using a vacuum, they don't speak english very well so I'm not sure. I have looked at the circuit breaker a # of times and nothing seems to have been tripped. I have also inspected the outlets and they seem to be fine. Can you help me?


Even know the breaker doesn't look tripped it might be. You have to flip it all the way off and then back on again. That is most likely what has happened. If that doesn't work check to make sure a GFI hasn't tripped. They are usually loc ... Vacuums

My vacuum stopped working and tripped a circuit breaker in my apartment. I plugged it into a circuit with higher amperage, and the circuit tripped after the vacuum ran for a few seconds then a bit of smoke puffed out of it. I assume the motor is burned out. Can I repair this? Considering buying a refurbished one for around $70 - which is probably less than round trip shipping back to the manufacturer (this is way out of warranty).

U-Shaped piece I was in the hospital for a couple of nights and my 80 year old mother decided to go to my house and vacuum my house. When I went to get it out to vacuum the other night the u shaped part fell off. I guess my mom had somehow knocked it off. Now I cannot figure out where it goes. It is a plastic U-shaped piece. Can you help me? I sat for a hour trying to figure out where it goes.

My Sanitaire Commercial vacuum SC5815 A-2 does not turn on. It is quite new and seems to be "totally dead." Serial number: 0632005978 It is firmly plugged in, I have tried numerous electrical outlets, and I have tried the on-off switch numerous times. I wonder if there is a simple circuit breaker switch somewhere on the vacuum that I could switch without going to a repair shop? Or, I wonder if some latch is loose that shuts off the current, but I have checked the latches and they are clo

Hi I’ve got a Panasonic vacuum cleaner MC E468 1600W a few years old now but works well up to recent problem. Not picking up I checked the obvious things and found excessive air being sucked in around the hose housing at the back of the vacuum (as it enters the waste bag) On inspection it appears to me as if there should be some sort of gasket that may have perished and been sucked in, however I can’t identify any such part. Any thoughts on what the problem/solution may be will be appreciate


The hose on the back might be loose - check to see that the hose is not obstructing anything where it screws in at the back - or indeed the screws may be loose themselves; some of the MCE 468 models had an additional ring washer that sits between the ... Panasonic Vacuums

I have two old identical 5842's that I use in the garage and around the house. The belt broke on one so I bought a bag of 2 genuine Eurika "U" belts, which is the correct belt for this vacuum. They were obviously smaller than the original belt because they were not stretched out. When I put the new belt on it lasted about 20 minutes and then came off. I put it back on and ran the vacuum with the cover off to see what was wrong. Everything looked fine except the belt rides to the outside edge of

Motor My vacuum cut out as I was using it. After some experimenting I found that the circuit reset had gone off. When I tried a second time while near the motor , there was a flash and again the motor shut off. At this time I am guessing that the motor is faulty. The central vacuuming is approximately 12 years old.


If it tripped the reset again, I would probably agree with you. Check out centralvacuum.com for another motor. They aren't the cheapest, but they have excellent support. Good Luck!! ... Easy Flo EF1400 Central System Vacuum

VACUUM REPAIR I have a Hoover Savvy upright, windtunnel, bag/bagless vacuum (model U8150-900). The Handle Release Foot Pedal - Part #38434026 broke soon after purchase but I finally found a source to replace this item. The problem is that now that I have the repair part I cannot figure out how to remove the old pedal and install the new one. The housing appears to be one piece of solid plastic. Any ideas, PLEASE!

There are 2 tabs that stick out on the release, they fit in slots, so from the top look down and you can see them, using a flatblade screwdriver that will fit in there, push the side in to release it, which isn't easy, but it can be done. When you g ... Vacuums

The motor just went out on my 2 year old vacuum with light usage (hardwood floors in a very small house.) The Sears repairpeople are estimating ~ $130 to fix (this includes parts & labor). I'm wondering if it's worth investing $130 into something i've spent $350 on only 2 years ago. Shouldn't these machines last longer ? Is there something I could do to get them repair free as it seems the motor must have been faulty to only have lasted 2 years. Thoughts ?

I cannot charge my two year old electrolux pronto. I purchased a brand new hand held vacuum for it, but even the new one does not charge. When I plug in the cord nothing happens. If I turn on either the long handle or the portable unit within the long unit, the blue charging light comes on for a few seconds, then out. This tells me that the circuit is intact without a broken wire somewhere. I took it all apart carefully and could see nothing broken or out of place. On re-constructing it, it
