Having problems with your Hoover U9145-900 Z Bagless Upright Vacuum ?

Hoover Z700 the mechanism that closes off the vacuum behind the agitator brush will not open.


Answers :

You will need to take the top off. It is easy: turn the vacuum over and look at the bottom (where you can see the beater bar). There are some deep screw "wells"; these are the screws you need to take out plus the 4 silver looking screws that hold the beater bar plate in place. When you bet those out, there there will be a "notch" at the front, behind the LED light you will have to disengage. Turn the vacuum back over and take the gray top off. You should be able to see the engagement latch that is attached to the handle. This is what opens and allows the flap to shut. It has a spring attached that may have come loose. Good luck.

Hoover Mach 6 U5198-900 vacuum roller brush won't turn. I had opened the bottom to clean hair off the roller. the belts are not broken. When I closed it and turned it on, now the roller brush won't turn. I can push and turn it by hand, but not easily. Then I noticed the brush on/off switch is turned off, but when I step on it, it won't turn on. I was thinking I let something get out of place when I opened the bottom, but can't see what.

My electrolux oxygen canister cuts on and off. I have to open and close the vacuum, or take the base of the hose off and then re-insert. I have to do all these things before it will start up again. I sometimes shake the hose around, then it will come back on. If I try to dust with the dust brush (like a lamp shade or shelf) and the suction pulls against the object, the vacuum goes off for awhile. Sometimes I'll have to reset the vacuum by unplugging the electric cord. I never get to finis

I have a Kenmore 116.36932 (upright-bagless vacuum) that the motor protector by-pass valve has opened. I've clean out the area between the agitator brush where the flexible extension hose starts.

Hoover Windtunnel U5750-900 Agitator brush is weak. It turns fine if I tilt the vacuum back, but it slows to almost 1/4 speed when it touches carpet, even on the highest carpet setting. I've replaced the agitator belt twice. The brush used to turn powerfully even on the lowest (Hard Floor) setting. Ideas? I should probably lube the agitator brush ball bearings, and re-check the belt, but, other than that, I'm stumped.
