There are 2 filters, make sure they are clean, one is on the tank lid, the other is from the bottom, it is red, pull it out and clean it. If yours has a foam filter on the tank lid covering the yellow ball, make sure there is at least a 1/4 in. gap from the top. Also make sure that the lid in on and secured tightly.

Really loud noise.
Posted by Theresa626 on July 20, 2008
The belt inside my Hoover broke and so we replaced it. But when we did, it now makes an extremely loud noise when turned on. We think it’s the roller to the vacuum because it doesn't make a noise when the roller is not in there. The roller sounds like its hitting something. However, we have pushed and pulled and done everything and all seems to be right. Everything is clicked in and the belt is on correctly and we've followed the manual. How can I fix this problem?
Hello,
I would advise you to ALWAYS to FIRST UNPLUG YOUR VACUUM before beginning any service procedure. It sounds to me that it is a bad brushroll and could need new bearings or a complete new brushroll depending on if id is metal word or plastic. Some brushrolls are rebuildable and some are not, you can check your owner’s manual to see if it is or is not; or it could be the start of a broken fan blade or bearing in the motor section. But that is the only thing that I can think of that might be wrong. Feel free to contact your local vacuum cleaner dealer in your area or you can also contact the Hoover website or 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.

I am wondering if you have purchased the correct belt- there are two belts on your machine. Go to this site and have a look at the belts there. Also, if youno longer have your manual you can download one from this site with your MODEL # and it should have instructions on installing the correct belt. Good luck to you.

SOURCE: My Hoover Linx is not

I think you have 2 problems:
1. The LiNX gets clogged somethings in the head unit and the clog is difficult to see. Remove the head (via the push button). and clean out the clog. I do this with a lenngth of coat hanger wire that I bent a small hock on to the end.
2. If the roller stops turning it can be caused by one of the power wires to the moter getting severed in the swivel connection in the head unit. This has happened to us twice. I took the unit apart (a pain) and was able to fix by soldering and taping wires. However, Hoovers design is not great in getting power to the motor and this may recur. I love these vacuums and I hope they engineer a more robust wie feeding solution.

Why s it starting to make loud noise?


you might have picked up a hard object like a dime or screw that won't go into the bag. Pill out the brush and shake it downward and look for something falling out.

How old is your battery? and did you keep it on charge when it was not in use?
Most rechargeable batteries require a spindown, where as you completely discharge the battery before recharging it again.
I know you aren't wanting to hear this but in all probability that battery is spent and will need to be reconditioned at a battery place, however, it will cost almost as much as a new one it would be your call.
if you have a ohm/volt meter it might be possible to look at the charger and get a volt/amp reading and then test it see if it is putting out the proper voltage it could be putting out a trickle charge and it would take forever to charge it.
there is one other situation to look at and if the beater brush or motor is causing a resistance it will pull a battery down quick.
I do not own this vaccum so I can only guess as to the possibilities.

Hoover linx brush motor


Locate the dimple somewhere around the edge of the two components to be separated.
Put a sheet or drop-cloth down and work on that to prevent anything from being lost if it opens suddenly. (it should be fine).
Use a large flat head screwdriver to pry it open.

Motor making grinding noise and burning smell


A bit too late I fear. There is either grit from an overloaded dust bag in the motor or the brushes have worn out. Spares and not expensive.

My Hoover Linx is not picking up anything. Nothing seems to be keeping the brushes from spinning but they are not working. It is only 3 months old. Fully charged.

I have two older Filter Queen (brown vacuum cleaners). Besides unclogging the hose area and making sure it is not filled with dirt, what else would cause the machine to run hot and have a high pitched...


High pitched sound is often caused by air leaks in air ducts. This will also cause hoover loosing sucking power and slightly overheating.

If the hoover is overheating a lot, then noise can also come from the motor. In that case the part must be rplaced.

Try replacing the cone filter, the secondary filter, and the insulation at the top of the machine.
If that does not fix the problem, then the hoover must be taken apart to clean or repair the air duct.

I used the vaccum with out a bag once and when I put the bag in and started it it would not work. It makes a lot of noise and there is no suction at all.


If your machine requires a bag and u use it without one then the dirt has no place to go but through the motor. It sounds like your motor is shot.
