Question about Hoover S2220 Flair Bagless Upright Vacuum

1 Answer

Carpet setting not working

There's two settings to my vacuum cleaner (hoover S2220 flair bagless) but only the 'floor' setting seems to be working, and i can't get the carpet setting to work. the vacuum did smell of smoke, so i took it apart and cleaned the nozzle, belt, etc (i think the smell came from hair and other things stuck on the brush because i wasn't even able to manually rotate the brush). however, even after i cleaned out the debris, carpet setting was still not working. is the brush supposed to rotate while the vacuum is on? because it definitely wasn't rotating on its own when i turned it on...and the vacuum suction power is definitely not as good as it was before.... 
thank you!

There is a belt in the nozzle that is driven by a small motor in turn will drive the roller when set to carpet. did you completely dis-assemble the nozzle? ie, to remove the roller and clean the endcaps? this would also show the belt. The gear on the motor wears very easily and could also be worn. I would change the nozzle or get a new Flair. new nozzles cost about $25-$30.

How do I change the belt?


To change the belt on a Hoover Flair Stick Vacuum, remove all 6 screws from the bottom of the beater bar. There are 2 screws hidden under wheels. You must pop the wheels off with a screw driver to remove the hidden screws. The cogged belt is on the left side of the beater bar. Be careful not to pull the wires.

Flair Cleaner makes squeaking noises


There are two items that could squeak:
If it squeaks when pushing/pulling it on carpet, WHILE NOT RUNNING, then the wheels are squeaking when they rotate on the wheel shaft. If so, one drop of oil at the shaft would fix it.

If it squeaks WHILE RUNNING, mostly while pulling backwards on carpet, then the belt is slipping. You may wish to set the nozzle height setting for a higher pile carpet, or could replace the rubber belt.

Flair motor shorting out?


There's a thermal cut-off when the unit has overheated. Mine does this quite often and I remedy it by emptying the canister and making sure the filter is clean, especially of lint and things that prevent good air flow.

Hoover Flair S2200


Should be the same, Hoover would only have one S2200 model and it doesn't matter who is selling it.
