Hoover Fusion U5180-900

I purchased a Hoover Fusion U5180-900. It powers on and off great but there is no suction. I have checked all the filters and checked for blockage in all hoses. What else can I try to fix this problem.

Double-checking for blockages in the hoses (if necessary by making sure you can poke a bit of wire through them) still has to be a good next move. Next, follow the path the sucked-in air is meant to take, checking for leaks (best way to do this is to run the machine an listen for loud sucking noises). Likely causes are things not put together right, controls set wrong,hoses not properly attached to their couplings or missing seals. If none of these things, and it is new, I'd take it back to the place you got it from and get them either to show you why there's nothing wrong with it, or to replace it. A

My vax pet Hoover has lost its suction I've emptied it there's no blockages and Iv cleaned the filter

first, if it has a hose check for being plugged, you may have to take the vacuum apart further till you reach the fan on motor which may have hair,lint,etc wrapped around it which can cause low suction.

My carpet shampooer will not **** the water back up. It is a Hoover Steamvac Deluxe 1600.


Check the filters, make sure they aren't clogged. Also if this has the foam filter on the inside of the tank lid, make sure it has at least a 1/4 is gap from the top.

My Hetty Hoover has no suction, but when I take the filter out it has suction Please help!

Throw away your old filter if it is not cleanable. Only clean it if it is a washable filter. If not, buy a new one

Valve sucks in and hoover loses suction

Your vacuum may have a suction release valve that is opening up because there is a clog or restriction somewhere.

I have a Hoover Windtunnel UH70212. Just a few months old. I used the attachments a while back and now there is very little suction. The power brush attachment doesn't work at all. Any suggestions?

If there is no suction, there has to be a blockage somewhere in the dirt path. You should hear the motor working a little harder in this condition. Please check the entire dirt path from floor to exhaust (clean all filters too) to find the obstruction.

Thanks for your question @

No sucking

if you have no suction - then the problem could be a dirty filter or a blocked suction hose. clean the filter and check the hose from top to bottom for blockage. if all is clean and clear and you still dont have suction then the problem could be a bad vacume suction motor.

I have a Hoover Wind Tunnel Self propelled 12amp. There seems to be very little suction. I have cleaned the hoses and filters but still not much suction. any ideas? thanks.

Make sure all filters are cleaned out and entry ways are clear of all debris. Remove hose and check for blockage. Usually the low suction can be remedied when all filters are cleaned. Hope this works for you.

Just bought this Hoover Fusion vaccum used, cleaned it up, checked belt and filter, turned it on and is extremely loud, almost like a scream. Any idea what could be causing this and how to fix?

Loud noises from this model are caused by dirt build up on the suction fan mounted directly to the motor. Under the dirt cup there is a filter screen that should have a foam filter insert, when not used or cleaned properly allows dirt to get into the motor. Cleaning is the best option. Although if you are inclined, you can take it apart or take it to your local deaLer.

My suction blocked light keeps coming on my Hoover Whisper vacuum. I've check all areas and can't find a blockage.

Remove the filter bin and open the compartment pictured under it. You probably need to wash the sponge filter per the manual. It fixed the problem for me and doubled the suction.
