Filter keeps clogging

Report abuse
Dust etc collects in the filter above the dust container. The dust container remains empty. Hoover then over heats and cuts out. Collect in replaced new filters in Hoover but problem still remains.

Hello,
I would advise you to ALWAYS to FIRST UNPLUG YOUR VACUUM before beginning any service procedure. My question is how old is the Hoover vacuum? If it less than a year you should really see an Authorized Hoover vacuum cleaner dealer that the problem might be covered under a factory warranty. This should not be happening and it sound to me like there is a clog somewhere in the vacuum fill area that is causing it to do this to you and the vacuum. You are lucky that you have a thermal switch that does shut it off. If not and it is over the one year factory warranty then you should see a local vacuum cleaner dealer in your area or contact Hoover Cust Serv @ the website and or phone 3 listed below. So if you need further assistance, please feel free to contact your local vacuum cleaner dealer in your area or in the yellow pages, or contact the factory phone number or website to further assist you with your questions.

SOURCE: Vacuum cleaner filters

Sponge filters should be washable. I have found that "FLASH" lemon floor cleaner is by far the best, but washing up detergent will do (far too many bubbles to get rid of for my liking!). I find pouring the detergent onto the sponge and working it in before dunking it in very warm water works best. Despite not being very washable, most paper filters can be washed if you have no other choice and you take care. Just pour on cleaner and then dunk up and down in hot water. Then leave in the airing cupboard for a couple of days to dry. It should get you by until you can find somewhere to buy a new paper filter.

SOURCE: the hoover keeps switching on and off automatically.

Sounds to me like there is either a loose wiring in the pedal or mains power cord. Check that the plug is secure. Check both filters though - one behind the bag (usually square and slides out) as well as the main exhaust filter at the back between the power on and cord rewind button. I used to own many Telios models but they are known to have cheap shearing cords which can only be replaced by a Hoover repairer. Sometimes the On pedal can be affected as well particularly if it has been stamped on heavily.
Dont forget to rate, ty.

On hoover steam carpet cleaner, the brushes do not rotate on low or high settings.


Follow these steps if the Brushes Fail to Spin
•If the brushes on your Hoover carpet cleaner fail to spin, there may be a problem---some sort of blockage---with the suction or with the belt that turns the brushes.
Turn the Hoover carpet cleaner over, and inspect the brush area. Debris, strings, or pet hair may be tangled in the rollers, keeping them from turning. Use a pair of scissors to cut away any obstructions in this area. Flip the Hoover carpet cleaner back over, and turn it on to see if cleaning the rollers has solved the problem.
To check the belt, turn the Hoover carpet cleaner over, and remove the bottom plate screw with a Phillips head screwdriver. Investigate the belt area to see if it is broken or has somehow slipped off. If it is broken, you can order a part from Hoover.com or from many of the other online parts stores.
When the belt arrives, simply slide it on in place of the broken belt, reattach the bottom plate and turn the Hoover carpet cleaner right-side up. Turn it on to test your solution.

Need to change a belt on my Hoover Concept One Power drive

Hello,
I would advise you to ALWAYS to FIRST UNPLUG YOUR VACUUM before beginning any service procedure. On the Hoover Concept One Power Drive Upright vacuum there are 2 belts, a drive belt and a power drive belt, always use the Hoover genuine belts and for the best cleaning always change you vacuum belts every 4 to 6 months for the best cleaning. !st, remove the bottom plate and cut off the old belts – then you need to lift up the one side of the brushroll that has the pulley side for the longer of the 2 belts and slide it on. Replace the brushroll, B4 you go to far remember which went on 1st, the power drive belt (smaller belt) or the brushroll belt, in either case hook the belt(s) onto the pulley 1st and then use a belt puller or a screwdriver with a hook or bend on the end and stretch the belt(s) onto the motor pulley and then track the belts in a straight line – do this on both belts. Once you have done this then replace the bottom plate. Check your owner’s manual in the trouble shooting guide to see if they also have suggestions or check with your local vacuum cleaner dealer in your area or contact the Hoover website or the Hoover factory cust serv phone # listed below. So if you need further assistance, please feel free to contact your local vacuum cleaner dealer in your area or in the yellow pages, or contact the factory phone number or website to further assist you with your questions.

Hello,
I would advise you to ALWAYS to FIRST UNPLUG YOUR VACUUM before beginning any service procedure.
The biggest thing on a Hoover Upright is the belt change and the brushes on the brushroll to be of good length, you said you did change the bag and sometimes if it is a hard shell vacuum there is a filter below the bag the needs cleaning or changing, if you have a soft shell or cloth outer bag, you can clean the inside the of the bag or replace the outside bag because even the pores of the bad lose it’s filtration such as your clothes will loosen up after you wash them a few times – the fabric is not as tight as it used to be. The belt change for a flat belt is every 4 to 6 months, and keep the extra belts in a Ziploc bag in the refrigerator. Also check for any bad gaskets that could be leaking, I may suggest a vacuum tune up @ you local vac dealer. So if you need further assistance, please feel free to contact your local vacuum cleaner dealer in your area or in the yellow pages, or contact the factory phone number or website to further assist you with your questions.

My hoover wind tunnel vaccum has a hepa filter that is supposed to be self cleaning but continues to plug up. it is not easy to get to and takes forever to clean it out so the suction is strong again.


do you have the SELF-CLEANING, rotating HEPA filter?

I just fixed my HEPA filter not rotating!!

It involves taking apart the vacuum HEPA area. All screws are the same size. There are a LOT of 'em. Really straightforward putting it back together too.

ok, once you take the HEPA canister area off the vacuum, careful with the wires! Unplug them from the controller board. You open up the HEPA chamber by removing more screws until you see where the motor that turns the filter is mounted on the side. Remove motor from the green chamber. Note where the washer goes. Once the motor is off, you'll see that the center hub that drives the HEPA filter is rounded out. What I did was jam little bits of aluminum from a pop can into the space between the circle and the square to force the walls back to square. I started by folding a little piece of aluminum over and over so it was about three layers thick. Jammed that in. That wasn't quite enough thickness so I shoved another piece with it. If you can find something that is about 4 times the thickness of a pop can aluminum, that'd probably work too. Slight wedge shape on the tip would help. Any sort of tiny shim.

To test your work, just put a couple of holder screws into the HEPA cannister housing, plug in the cover/switch, plug in the HEPA moter. Turn it on for a few seconds to make sure the filter turns. Then you can add more thickness to the hub or put things back together.

How often should I change a Hoover Empower filter?

Hello,
I would advise you to ALWAYS to FIRST UNPLUG YOUR VACUUM before beginning any service procedure.
Depending on what type of filter it is, the suggested change for a filter is every 6 months to one year if it is a cartridge filter or HEPA filter, if it is a filter that can be vacuumed off or it might be a washable filter – you can clean it that way until the filter starts to fall apart – then @ that time you would want to replace it @ that time. Please check with you local vac dealer. Filters
It's important to replace your vacuum filter or HEPA filter regularly to keep your Hoover vacuum working best. Not only will this increase the life of your vacuum, it will also keep unwanted dust, dirt and allergens out of the air. Keep your home Hoover clean with genuine Hoover filters.
So If you need further assistance, please feel free to contact your local vacuum cleaner dealer in your area or in the yellow pages, or contact the factory phone number or website to further assist you with your questions.
