Having problems with your Hoover Vacuums ?

The bag indicator shows full but the bag is empty

Answers :

In my bag vac, I have found that when the light shows the bag is full when its not that there is something between where it sucks into the vac to where it empties into the bag...maybe cat hair, dog hair....etc. Try removing the bag and running it, this may allow the air to flow alittle faster and force out the jam. You may also try removing the bottom of the vac, usually just a few screws, and checking to see if you can see the jam. What is happening is this jam is slowing down the air flow and the vac thinks the bag is full....also check the filter where the air leaves the bag area...also look where the bag connects, sometimes trash can hang there.....good luck

I have just replaced the bag in my miele and the indicator is showing that the bag is full. The air coming from the exhaust is hot and the machine is making a higher pitched sound as it does when the bag is full. When the hose is detached, the indicator registers as empty and there doesn't seem to be a blockage.

I checked the hose, wand, head but can't see any blockage and when i blow with my mouth it seems fine. Can anybody help? thanks!
