Having problems with your Hoover Vacuums ?

My brand new Hoover upright vacuum cleaner, model Hoover Tempo Widepath U5140-900 delivers no suction from the hose attachment. I have attached it exactly as illustrated in the manual. Any help is much appreciated! R. Gardner


Answers :

Sometimes there is a physical switch to move the air ducts that connect to the suction motor. I'm not sure about your model, but here's what I would do. First, read the manual and instructions thoroughly, to see if there's some switch to activate the hose attachment. If that didn't work, I would take it in to a Vacuum Repair Shop and just let them take a look at it. If it's some switch, they will know and most likely show you without charge. If nothing seems to work, get an exchange on the unit, since it could be defective in some respect. Good luck to you, and hope this helps.

I have a Miele Vacuum cleaner MedicAir 5000 Plus. Recently the Dust Bag Indicator bar is full during normal cleaning and consequently the suction power is much less. I replaced the dust bag, engine pre-filter and Hepa filter but no change. When i remove the hose, the Indicator is normal, but when i attach the hose, wand, head, the indicator is full. 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!

Vacuum not picking up much but the hose attachment has no problem


I assume you've checked for blockages and that there's a useful length of bristles on the brush roll. Turn the machine over, and just behind the brush you will see a short length of clear plastic tubing with spiral reinforcing. That tube often splits ...

Shampoo-er This seems to be a common problem, the shampooer is putting out alot of water and hardly any suds. I read through the posts about the little filter that sometimes gets out of place and I think I found it in the box - is it about 1" diameter hard plastic ring around very fine mesh? If so where exactly does it go? Some posts say in the hose, and others say in the opening of the tank. Or does it go in the place where the hose attaches to the tray? I also found a round sponge in the box o


It goes on the small hole on the tank where the hose attaches to it. The sponge goes in the hole directly under the on/off valve. Here is a link to my online shampooer instructions.\015\012 \015\012 ... Kirby Ultimate G Bagged Upright Vacuum

We have inherited a Filter Queen Majestic Triple Crown Model 99C vaccum and have no owners manual stating the year it was purchased and parts available. Our power hose electic wire connection (about 6 inches long) which plugs into the main unit is split in the hose attachment end. The motor sound went instantly quieter and I wondered if this was why when I found this frayed electical wire. It has not been used since this problem was found. How much is this single replacement part? I live

My filter queen just had the motor rebuilt last year and was basically a brand new unit when I got it back. It is not picking anything up now when I vacuum. The beater bar on the carpet attachment is turning fine and when I take all the attachments off the hose I can feel the suction being created like it should be picking up debris just fine. I have emptied the canister even when it did not have much in it; however, it still will not pick anything up off the carpet. It picks up debris tempo


It sounds as if you have a clog inside the "Power Nozzel". They mention that there are "no user serviceable parts within the Majestic® Power Nozzle" My advice would be to see if you can see a clog with in reachable distance and try to remove the ... Filter Queen Vacuums

I have the Hoover Deluxe Elite Rewind with the 24 ft cord reel. I can't seem to find the instructions or a model # exactly for it.

I have a cannister (Animal something...) Today, it didn't sound right - like a blockage. I took out the filter - seemed OK; I looked for a blockage - found none. I continued to vacuum, but it wasn't picking up. Then, I stopped again, and I found a blockage (cat toy mouse) right at the end of the hose (attachment end.) I cleared, and I turned back on - nothing. Completely dead. It is one year old, just about exactly. Desperate, Sharon Tracy

I have Optima, 12amp Eureka vacuum, Model 431, AXZ type and the extension hose for cleaning corners and edges --the plastic part that the attachments fit into has a piece broken off and tools don;t fit anymore. It looks like the hose attachment can be replaced--can it be and if so--where can I get a new hose attachment. It seems it is cheaply made of plastic and really shouldn't have broken a piece off.
