Why has my vax power VX2 hoover now lost it's suction ? I have noticed that the roller has limitied brushes on it now and was clogged with hairs . I have removed this now and the brushes are still min


Sounds like something is clogging up the pipes between the head and suction pipe. Have a poke around with some wire to see if it's full of hair or fluff, maybe even a sock?

My Henry Hoover cut out and will not work. Emptied bag and replaced fuse but no success.


If no burning or smelling, maybe nothing to do with motor, and if caused by the safety cut-out, it will need about an hour to cool down, and then check filter, bag, and drop coin through hose, pipes and the floor tool, to check for blockages and to stop it running hot. Damaged cable, worn carbon brushes, broken electrical rewind electrical contacts or even the printed circuit board (later models) are the most likely causes.

Bag change indicater staying on and vacuum smells hot when using


I suspect there is a blockage somewhere along the pipes leading to the dust bag.
The bag full or bag change indicator measures how strong a vacuum is present at or near to the point where the bag is connected to the pipes. Under normal conditions an empty bag poses little resistance to the air passing through and therefore causes only a slight vacuum. A full bag poses a lot of resistance and therefore causes a strong vacuum which in turn makes the indicator show time to change.
If, however, there is a blockage somewhere, regardless of the state of the bag, a strong vacuum develops which causes the indicator to show as if the bag is full.
The hot smell is proably a result of the motor having to work hard trying to overcome the blockage.
Try to look into all the pipes - you may need to do a bit of dismantling and/or strech out flexible pipes to do so - to see if there's anything stuck. Also try some (careful and gentle !) poking through the pipes with something like an un-ravelled wire coat hanger, but take great care when poking through the flexible pipes as these can be ripped and then you'll have a differnt problem !

Hoover U5468-900 WindTunnel Supreme suction is suddenly poor


The other possibility is there is a blockage in the foot. these models have dual channel air flow (windtunnel) and become blocked when not cleaned depending on use. under the roller there is a cavity that can be removed for cleaning. a hot motor can be caused by poor air flow.

My morphy richards ultralight 1500w will not pick up the bag is empty and the pipe for the tools seems to get blocked even when not in use


I've heard a lot of those vacuums have faulty parts. If you can, try to get someone from the company to repair it. I've got a Riccar 8700, trhat's what I'm going to do.

I need a new head or good second hand piece for my hero 1600 hover vacuum


The Hero 1600 should use 32mm type floor fittings which means on EBay you can pick up just about any type of floor tool which is suitable for most Hoover, Electrolux and Morphy Richards/Goblin appliances. This means you can use other branded tools and floor heads just by their fitment rather than the name.

EBay is a lot cheaper than having to order a brand new one from Hoover themselves. Alternatively try any floorcare repair shops who offer additional tools which can be purchased. 9 times out of 10 they will have a floor head which is similar to the one which has broken on yours.
