Hoover Freejet Cyclonic will not charge after battery run flat

Vac worked perfectly for 2 years, living on its charge base as advised. When the battery began to run down faster I let it run completely flat as recommended, for a complete recharge which has always worked fine. This time the whole vac was dead. I've tested the fuse in plug and wall socket with other items. The cord to the base is undamaged, so there appears to be power to the charge base.The battery pack inside vac appears intact also.
Replacement Batteries cost same as a new vac, or service call, and I dont want to do that as problem seems to me to be the charge base.
Any ideas?

    I can't find a replacement battery pack

  • rosemary296 Mar 11, 2009

    The power on my Freejet Cyclonic hoover runs out very quickly when I use it. The machine is about 3 years old. How long should I leave it unplugged for the battery to run flat before starting to recharge it please? I didn't know that sometimes this will solve the low power problem.

Hoover Mach 5 turns off after 5 minutes of using. Can you advise the problem?


5 minutes everytime? If so, raise brush all the way, and vacuum next to nothing. in fact, tilt vac up so the brush touches nothing. wait 5 minutes. If it doesn't shut off, your brush is set too high. if it does, the motor is over heating. make sure bag is empty, no debris in brush, filters clean and make sure you're not plugged into an outlet that a breaker on the outlet can pop too.

The Hoover Fusion Plus Cyclonic Upright Vacuum has a 1 year manufacturers warranty from date of purchase. You need to check your reciept to see if it's under a year old. Then go to the Hoover.com web site to find the closest Hoover warranty service center to where you live. Bring the proof of purchase and the vacuum to them.

Hoover U5780-900 Windtunnel a month 1/2 old just started stopping when it is running and wont turn back on for a few hours why?


The motor has a thermal protection sensor on it. So your motor may be going bad, it is pulling to many amps for some reason, could be a clog somewhere or a bad bearing in the motor.

The spin brushes won't spin Hoover Steam Vac F5874-900


The brushes are driven by air pressure passing through a small turbine. There is a filter in the path of the air flow. When it gets full of dirt it prohibits the air flow. You need to open the base and clean the filter out. It will run perfectly.

Handle broke off just above the four screws that attach it to the body of the vac. Hoover does not list parts for models that are more than two years old. The vac operates perfectly but without a handle my wife cannot use it, where can I find a part replacement. Easy to remove four screws and replace. Don’t want to drive 100 or more miles to find an authorized repair shop. Oh yes, this is a Hoover Preferred Wind Tunnel Bagless



Hello,
I would advise you to ALWAYS to FIRST UNPLUG YOUR VACUUM before beginning any service procedure. You have all the information needed but I would contact your local vacuum cleaner dealer and they may have a good used one or they may stock a new handle for your you or they can ship you one If you live too far from a factory authorized dealer. The vac shop that I worked in always had good used parts for ½ the price and it worked just fine – the only difference was the color and for the handle that would not make a difference in the performance and your wife could use the vacuum again. Also Hoover can ship the part to you providing they have it in stock. 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.

Hoover savvy no suction on carpet setting


Check to make sure you hear the vac. motor is running when in that position. The switch in the handle could be bad if it is not.

On-off switch on vacuum cleaner does not work


These machines had a defective switch and a bulletin was sent out to all service depots. If you contact any Hoover Warranty Depot, they will replace the switch, wiring harness and tool receiver under a no-charge warranty. It doesn't matter how old it is, but it must be listed in the serial number listing as one of the defective machines. It is possible that the switch just failed, as any switch can, and that your machine is not one of the affected models of the early switch, which means that they would charge for the repair work. You can go to www.hoover.com and check the serial number to see if your's is one of the defective ones. Other wise, you can buy a switch and install it yourself or have a repair shop do it.
As far as the toy part, your flat rubber belt will need to be replaced because, even though it looks fine, it will have sustained damage from the toy part jamming the brush roll. This belt should be change yearly anyway.
