Having problems with your Hoover U8171-900 / U8172-900 / U8173-900 / U8174-900 Savvy Bagless Upright Vacuum ?

I have a Hoover Savvy model U8174-900.. The beater brush only runs sometimes when I pull the unit backward. The handle switch seems OK but I cannot figure out why it is acting strange like this. Tilting the handle up or down does not seem to have an effect on this situaltion. Thanks for your help. Ron Simon

The Savvy has had its problems with the switch in the handle it will need to be replaced. Don the Vacuum Doctor Alb,N.M.
The cord on the bottom that runs between the upright part and the base has been stretched and an internal connection is loose. Lots to take apart to fix this. May be best to have a shop do it. I just figured out the problem and hope to find time to do the necessary disassembly myself.

Hoover U6637-960 the self propel is not not working. When lowering the handle it acts like it would like to work but the roller will not turn. appears to be something to do with the self propel part of the handle . took the screws aout but can not get it apart. Is there another belt of something in there?


This vac has 2 belts. If both self propel and roller not spinning then most likely it is the wide flat belt broken or off. 4 screws on the bottom should gain you access to the belt area. another issue for this model series is a worn pulley on the rol ...

Miele S5000 (revolution 5000) vacuum cleaner - How do I open the casing? When the power button on the handle is pressed the green power-level lights on the handle light, but the motor sounds like it gives a little 'jump' but nothing more. The orange power light on the body also dims. I assume the motor or fan is jammed, but I can't open the body to find out. I've taken out to screws inside near either end of the handle, but to no apparent effect. I'm assuming the body is held together by plastic

Have Dyson DC 14. When tilt to vacuum, the handle and coiled hose comes away from the unit. The problem started when the little purple ridged curved part on front of vacuum cleaner right below handle came loose and a spring fell out from somewhere--don't know where. I pushed on the purple ridge part and it snapped back on. Now, can't get it loose again, don't know where the spring goes, and handle still comes loose from vacuum.


I'm not positive whether or not this is the wand handle because there are several versions of the DC14. However the device the locks and unlocks the wand in place is pretty similar between all the versions.The first picture is the wand re ... Dyson DC14 Animal Bagless Upright Cyclonic Vacuum

My 8 yr old kenmore vacuum works well - however the hose has worn under the handle where there is a hole (resulting in decreased suction power). I'd like instructions on opening the handle and bypassing the worn piece of tubing rather than replacing it for $129. Some of the handle screws remove easily but the last one doesn't loosen easily.


Hi,Have you tried spraying the stubborn screw with WD40 and let it soaked for a while? Other than these screws holding the handle together, there would no other way of opening it up. Hope this be of initial help/idea. ... Kenmore Vacuums

I purchased a Eureka C4910 last year and have a question that I am hoping you can answer. There are two motor actions with this vacuum, 1) the vacuum suction, and 2) the beater bar. The action of the beater bar is that motor is supposed to automatically shut off when the handle is in the complete vertical position assuming the vacuum is stationary, but then turn on when the handle is tilted toward the floor, assuming the vacuum is moving back and forth. The beater bar motor turn-on mechan

I am trying to install a train air horn. i bought a viair compressor for it. the horns themselves have a 12 volt hookup going to what i believe is acting like a solenoid. when charged, you complete the circuit and walah, the horn blasts. the problem im having is when the compressor is building pressure, the air horn is automatically putting out a dull sound, getting louder as the pressure gets more and more. it sounds like its out of one horn however. it is doing that without the 12 v hookup. is

I have an Aerus Guardian canister vacuum with a clogged hose. The tiny stuffed animal toy is lodged right below where the swivel handle meets the hose. Switching the air flow does not dislodge it. I would like to remove the handle from the hose. Any suggestions?

Hello, I got a used Kirby Sentria. When I run the vaccum and push and pull on the handle, I can hearing a friction type noise. I got up close to the vaccum and it is not the wheels or roller. It is coming from the base of the handle. It's like it is pushing on something on the vaccum body and is creating the noise. Maybe transmission? Is this normal, or is it something I should be concerned about? Thanks for your help!
