Question about Hoover U8145-900 Savvy Bagless Upright Cyclonic Vacuum
Vacuum runs and brush turns when the vacuum is pulled backward. When it is pushed forward the brush doesn't rotate. Occasionally it will rotate when pushed forward but then quickly stops. It's almost like a bad connection. I tried taking it apart but it's all electronic parts and I got lost so I put it back together. Could it be the switch or something causing loss of power. It's strange that the brush will rotate and pick up when the vacuum is pulled backwards but not forwards.
I would appreciate any ideas. I've had it to a repair shop while it was under warranty and they didn't fix the problem and now it's out of warranty so I haven't taken it back to them.
I had the same problem . The reason it acts like that is due to the cable that runs from the vacuum motor to the brush assembly has an intermittent open. My fix was to find the small cable that was causing my troubles and splice it. Making sure that I recovered the insulation. Of course my local repair station wanted to replace it for $75 labor plus parts and keep it for 3 days. I took it home and did it in 30 minutes .
