Having problems with your Hoover Vacuums ?

Vac wont pull/**** anything while we try to vac floor,

\015 Upright position will not pick up anything (zero) suction. But if you use the hose or test it, there's a ton of suction. Checked beater bar, belt, and even checked the rear hose, can'd figure it out. Girlfriend purchased this unit in Aug. from Lowes and they **** too. \015\012Hoover Windtunnel Twin chamber 12 amp,Model # U5753-900\015

Hello RonD30,
\015\012If you are getting suction thru the hose and not from the bottom section.. you have a clog somewhere inline with the base area... If you have access to a shop vac ... unplug the Hoover, open up the base and remove the beater bar /belt assembly.. then hold the shop vac nozzle on the point of entry to where the Hoover pulls the debris into the dirt compartment. I am fairly certain you have a clog somewhere in that ducting.. Stubborn ones may need a little motivation.. so you may be able to get an electricians snake or metal coat hanger bent to release the jam..
\015\012Hope that helps..
\015\012Regards,
\015\012Rick..
\015\012And you are right , regarding Lowes..but don't exclude Home Depot from the same rating..LOL Once the sale is done.. so are they...

My Hoover Steam Vac model f5915-900 no longer heats the floor to reduce drying time. I have cleaned the bottom of the machine where it says "heated cleaning." Anything else I can try? Thanks.


The SteamVac blows warm air from the motor into the carpet to help loosen oily types of soil. If the motor is running, the air will be exhausted. This system is not meant to reduce drying time, but only to enhance cleaning. ... Hoover Vacuums

Kenmore canister model 116.25513506 wont turn on. when handle switch is turned to floor. vac motor does not turn on. When switch is turned to carpet, floor nozzle works but vac motor does not. I checked fuse, all o.k. checked continuity for plug, o.k. removed wires for bag full switch...motor wont run. I wired motor directly power cord...motor runs.

My vacuum just stopped working, so I don't know what the problem is. I used it in the kitchen to vacuum the hard wood floor. I turned it off, and a few minutes later, turned it back on to finish vaccuuming the kitchen floor. It just would not turn on. I had not unplugged it or did anything to it. I then tried to see if it would work in another plug, and no luck. I'm trying to figure out if it can be fixed or if I need to look for a new vacuum.


When I get most Vacuums that have dies on people most of them the wire has been worn and cut one or more wires on the plug cord. Sometimes the cut can be over looked. Please unplug and check the wire carefully.Also please post the make model a ... Kenmore 23913 Progressive PowerMate Bagged Canister Vacuum

Vaccuum issue I just bought a Eureka upright model 5892 BVZ, my concern is, I bought it on sale (floor model) and it didn't have a manual with it. I took it home and tried it, and although it appears to be working very well there is not dirt in the catch bin on the front of the unit. I tried the hose w/attachment and again it worked very well in picking up the cat hair, but where does the hair and the dirt go, I am afraid it is spitting it back out somewhere since I can not see anything in the c

My FIL purchased an Electrolux bagless canister vacuum model EL5 76501 last year. When I tried to use it today, the hose keeps pulling out of the power brush whenever I pull it towards me. it doesn't seem like anything has broken off. The only thing I noticed was that the rubber ring washer seems to be flattened. Could it be something that simple or do you think some part has fallen off and gone missing? Regards, Craig Somersett

Hi, I have a Dirt Devil Model # M08100REDC. I desperately need to change the bag, but I don't see an obvious way to do it. I'm afraid to try pulling on the cloth tab thingy that's just below the handle, between the rubber ring that holds the bag on the vac, because it seems like stuff will fly everywhere from the force required to remove it, and I might not be able to get it back on there. Should I just pull on that cloth tab until the bag comes off? Thanks, Roberta


You can pull on the tab to remove the bag, but probably a better way is to gently pull on the rubber ring that attaches the bag to the back of the vacuum body. If you don't yank and ****, it should come off without spilling the dirt. There may also b ... Dirt Devil Classic M08100 Bagged Handheld Vacuum

Floor Attachment I took off my floor attachment, but now the belt seems to be off and I can't seem to get it back on right. I can't use the attachment and I don't know why it's so hard to figure this out. They say, just turn it to belt off, but when i turn it it lift's it up and can't line up with the belt off label. Then, when I turn it the other way, it's off. So I've been trying to pull it off so when it lines up with belt off, it's off. But the I turn it the other way and it's still off a

I have a Eureka Upright vacuum (4800 Series). When I try to start it by turning the switch on, it wont. For few days, I was able to get around this problem by repeatedly turning the switch on and off until it turned on but that does not work any more. Could it be something related to the switch it self or the power cable. My wife mentioned that one of my kids might have pulled the power cable too hard (at the back of the vacuum).
