SOURCE: my hoover smells of ammonia

Hello,
I too have a problem with a bad smell coming from my henry hound hoover, but thats probely because i haven't used a hoover bag. I took the cloth filter out,banged all the dust off, then sprayed it with 'RugDoctor' pet stain remover for carpets and upholstery. It still smells a bit, but not half as bad as befor. I have now ordered a reusable,zipable,washable cloth hoover bag especially made for Henry's. It cost £8.80 from ebay with free postage. Hope this helps Nikki.

SOURCE: My Old Henry hoover is making a VERY loud noise

Most likely the motor bearings have worn out. You can fit a new motor quite easily, but if you need to pay someone else to do it for you the labour plus motor cost will probably make the job uneconomical. Sorry to be the bearer of bad news...

Hi hoovered up some water and now Henry needs to dry out. How best to do this pls


probably too late
water and electrics do not mix and the water will have gone through the motor causing the motor to burn out
you can try leaving it open and out in the sun for a few days but I think that a new motor will be the fix , or a new unit
if the amount of water was small, the dirt in the bag may have saved the motor
if it was running after the water was sucked up then it may be ok but if it stopped then as I said probably too late to save

I'm getting a horrible sour/sweaty like smell blowing out of my Henry when vacuuming, i've tried to clean the filter, but its still just the same & the smell also seems to be in the head o


You can buy little sachets of nice smelly stuff to put inside Henry. Most supermarkets have them. Makes the carpets smell nice too.

I was using my Henry Hoover as usual. When i sucked up quite a fair sized puddle of water. The hoover instantly cut out and a strange burning smell was coming from it. Would this be the fuse, motor etc ?...


Hi. I have to wonder why anyone would **** up a puddle of water with a dry vacuum cleaner (with no earth lead). I realise that your question may simply be a joke, but if you are serious, I think it is probably fair to assume that it is now dead and probably gone to "Henry Heaven". Perhaps it would pay you to buy a "Charles" which is a wet & dry version of Henry.

Water in Henry vacuum cleaner motor.


I would say it's essential to open Henry up, otherwise (assuming he has indeed got water inside him) you will wait for ever for him to dry. He can be opened very easily - just undo the four recessed screws on the underside of his hat, and the upper part will lift off. Pay attention to the switch (or switches, depending on the model) as that may be more vulnerable to water penetration than the motor. The motor compartment may have water in it, but the motor itself is probably fairly well protected. When you've got it opened and mopped up any visible water, it will help to give it a blow with a hair dryer.
If in doubt, though, get a professional to deal with it. It pays not to mess with electricity if you're unsure!

Can i wash the filter on my numatic henry hoover?


If it is a recent model 2007 onwards, it may not be too successful, but you could try if absolutely necessary. Although not normally required, earlier filters can be gently washed by hand in a soapy solution, thoroughly rinsed and left to dry naturally.
