Having problems with your Hoover U8147-900 WindTunnel V2 Bagless Upright Cyclonic Vacuum ?

Hoover U8147-900 WindTunnel V2 Bagless Upright has sparks coming from motor housing


Answers :

Most bagless uprights are exposed to dirt being drawn through their motors and filtered afterwards. As a result when you see sparks the motor has generally suffered its final breath... Today's uprights often run with high RPM disposable motors where older bag type uprights used lower speed rebuildable motors.
So the short answer is you likely need an entire motor as a minimum. If the unit is a higher end model mover $200 , in great condition and less than 5 years old, take it to a Hoover service center and either buy and install a motor or have them rebuild it. But also consider this...
What most people don't realize is they spend more on high priced consumable filters for many cheap bagless vacs than they ever would spend on bags and in the end the bagless is dirty to handle and has a shorter life span. Mass merchants sell the vacs cheap because their profit is in the filters
Remember a vacuum is the hardest working appliance in your home in the toughest possible conditions
If you replace this vac do so at a pro shop and see the options they have. You will get good advice , you will spend a bit more with better results and less frustration because you will build a relationship .....and always know where to go for service.

Hi. We have a Riccar N2100 vacuum cleaner, which has served us well for many, many years. I'd like to attempt a repair on this unit, and looking for advice and/or a parts diagram to proceed. The unit makes a groaning sound when shut off. The sound tapers off in pitch as the motor and beater bar come to a stop.

Recently my central vac system started making a louder than usual and laboured sound when in uise, enough so that I took note and inspected the canister and motor while running. The motor was trowing off blue sparks and looked like it could 'POP' at any moment. I will not risk using it until I know what the problem is and how to repair it. My assumption is the motor needs to be replaced. The system came with the resale house I bought 3 yrs ago but I do not know the age of the system itself.

Replacement parts... I've got a 3594 Bissell and the belt has come completely off. In the process of breaking, it bent the metal guide inside the motor housing and melted the plastic that holds the guide and keeps the belt inline with the roller. I've got it running again by using a screw I filed all the threads off of, but it only works for 10 minutes at a time before breaking another belt. This process is getting expensive, as it usually takes 30 minutes to completely vacuum the house. Is ther

My Kirby 2HD has started making an odd roaring noise but still works fine. I have taken the front assembly off and cleaned and adjusted the roller and checked the belt. The noise seems to come from the motor housing. I have tried to wiggle the main shaft at the front (bearings?) and it seems tight. Can't seem to get the other housings apart. Any ideas? Thanks, John


It is quite possible, it just needs lubed. The motor comes in direct contact with dirt so, you have to make sure the front bearing has a drop of oil on it from time to time. If it starts to scream at you within one month, after oiling, the bearing ... Kirby Heritage II Vacuum
