Question about Hoover U5018-900 Bagged Upright Vacuum
I was vacuumung with no troubles. suddenly vacuum quit. i noticed upon investigating the bag was full and there was some white tissue like material being forced out of the black ring on the back of the unit? doesn't run no power ever since? any help greatly appreciated as i've only had for about 8 months.
Empty the bag, check the belt, and make sure the hose is not stopped up. Just as a heads up, powdered carpet cleaners are ***** on vacuum cleaners. Hope this helps

Check the opening behind the floor brush for obstructions there.

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 !

there might be a reset button on there but its not meant for continuous use. we need to figure out the problem why the power cuts out. what condition is the cord in? cuts nicks. also check the prongs on the plug. if not that could be a bad switch but it sounds like a loose connection
