This is usually caused by a build up of dust in the flexible pipe. It stops the pipe from compressing down and so you cant push the handle down far enough to get the latch to click home.

Try stretching the hose to its fullest extent and while someone has ut stretched, give the lengthe of the hose a good beating to knock the drit in it loose. Alternatively, if you can remove the hose, fill it (and boy will it expand and slosh about!) with a mixture of hot water and floor cleaner (I use flash) Slosh it about intil the hose is full of gunk, then pour it away. Then, put the hose in your airing cupboard (Stretched out!) overnight to dry. When you put it back together it should now compress enough for the latch to clich home.

How do i disassemble my hoover f7220


Hi there! The tanks, brushes, nozzle and handle can be removed from the cleaner by following these quick steps below.

1. To remove the clean water tank simply grasp the handle and push down on handle to unlock it, then pull the tank out by the handle.
2. To remove the dirty water tank, slide the latches open located on the sides of the cleaner that hold the tank to the base of the cleaner. Grasp the handle and pull up and off.
3. For brush removal, with the handle in the upright position, tilt cleaner back until handle rests on floor. Grab brush assembly and pull firmly.
4. To remove the nozzle, with handle in upright position, tilt cleaner back until handle rests on floor. Pull tab at rear edge of nozzle and pull forward to remove nozzle.
5. For handle removal simply remove the handle screw and lift up on handle.

Disassembly beyond this point is not recommended. Hope this helps!

Remove handle from hose electrolux


You don't have to "remove" the handle from the hose to attach other attachments, just depress the tab at the end of the hose and pull the upper wand loose then use the "adapter" to use the dusting brush or simply snap the crevice tool in place to use. If the handle won't come loose from the upper wand, then the described "tab" needs replaced as it's locking up the parts. Hope that helps!

How to empty it


1. Push down on carry handle and
pull dirt container away from unit.

2. Once it is pulled back lift it out.

3. Hold dirt container over trash can and push down on bottom
release lever to release debris.

4. Close bottom cover on the dirt
cup until it snaps shut.

While you have the dirt container out you can also clean the Lifetime HEPA filter. It is on the top of the dirt container.

1. Twist lid to the left to remove lid and filter from
container

2. Remove foam filter from dirt container and dump out
any loose dirt. Wash the foam filter.

3. Remove the HEPA filter by Twist filter handle to the left and
pull out of lid. Wash the Heap filter.

4. Once the filters are thoroughly dry (I recommend set out for 24 hours) then installer filters in lid and thread back on top of the dirt canister.

Before replacing the dirt canister you can also clean the exhaust filter install below the dirt canister on the top vacuum cleaner head.

1. Loosen the exhaust grille by pressing the locking tab, and
remove it.

2. Remove and shake out the exhaust filter and wash it.
Note: Scented filter are not washable.

3. Once the filters are thoroughly dry relace it and snap the
exhaust grill into place.

Replace the dirt container
NOTE: Dirt container will not
align on base if filter is not
aligned properly.

I need instructions on how to change the belt on my Hoover Model U4264-930 vaccum.


Tool Needed, flat head screwdriver (larger one works a little better). Serious Safety Precaution: Make sure unit is unplugged. Preliminary: Check: that nothing is caught like threads etc, preventing roller brush from turning. I've had this model vacuum 10 years and have pulled threads out countless times. However it still has the original belt on it. To change belt: 1.) There is a plastic plate underneath roller, towards front.. Pry the 3 tabs at front, the plate hinges downward slightly (to clear the front tabs). Next, there are 2 little clips at bottom of plate. Insert screw driver at each of these clips to fully release the plate the rest of the way. (Or it may even come off without having to pry back on these. The plastic clips need pushed towards front, to clear the ridge that catches towards the back). Pry one, then the other, clip forward, while gently pulling the plate the rest of the way out. (Gentle prying will assure it will snap back together OK, so you still get a good seal.) You now should see the whole roller brush. 2.) Remove the shell/motor cover: To do this, a.) pull off the rug height adjuster lever, and take not where you put it so you won't loose it. b.) push foot release down and keep vacuum bag in the vacuuming/hinged/operating position (not the upright/locked position), and position cleaner on it's side, or upside down. c. Pry around the bottom edge, starting at right corner, then go around, prying in about 4 different places. Shell/motor cover will now easily pull off (upward and out towards front), exposing motor shaft and light bulb. 3.) remove belt from motor shaft. 4. slide roller and old belt out the bottom. 5.) remove old and place new belt on roller 6.) slide roller back into place. 7.) wrap other end of belt on motor shaft. 8.) shell cover, rug height adjuster knob, and bottom plate snap back into place. check that roller turns without much effort. 9.) It now should be ready to plug in and vacuum.

Drive not working on my hover sweeper handle seems very loose


How to Change Actuator on Hoover Self-Propel vacuum Cleaner - Step by Step This is a notorious problem for the Hoover WindTunnel Self-Propelled Models. What happpens is that the handle of the vacuum that controls the transmission is controlled by an actuator arm that is attached to a cable that runs down through the machine. The poor design of this self propelled system is design in such a way that if you pick up the vacuum using the handle (this is natural way to do it, I'm guilty of this as well), it puts too much strain on the actuator arm that controls the self-propelled mechanism, and causes the nut, washer, and screw to strip right out of the actuator arm. This explains why your handle is so loose. You may verify this by looking at the gap between the upright body, and the lower agitator housing, right where the vacuum pivots when you step on the handle release pedal. You should see when you move the handle up and down that the cable and nut are the only parts moving, and you should be able to see where the nut did sit inside of the actuator arm before it was stripped. The good news is that this is a relatively inexpensive part, and the repair is really not that difficult.

I will explain step by step, and include pictures so that you may see how to replace the part that's broken.
Always be sure your vacuum is unplugged from the electrical outlet before performing any kind of service!
Tools and materials:
Torx bit or driver size T-25
Flat blade screwdriver
Phillips screwdriver
Actuator arm – Hoover part number 43143046

Here's the picture of the part that probably needs to be replaced.
hoover-self-propel-fix-7-300x132.jpg
Step 1. Place your vacuum cleaner upside down with handle resting on the floor and brush roll housing resting on a work bench.
Remove 4 screws from rug plate and set rug plate aside.
hoover-self-propel-actuator-fix-1-300x225.jpg
Step 2.
Remove power drive belt, brush roll belt and brush roll.

hoover-self-propel-actuator-fix-2-300x225.jpg
Step 4.
Remove 6 screws as shown. Also remove duct hose cover and small plastic section that was under brush roll in upper left corner.

hoover-self-propel-actuator-fix-3-300x225.jpg
Step 5.
Place vacuum right side up on top of work bench with handle all the way back. Using a flat blade screwdriver; gently pry the top cover away from the bottom housing in the area shown by(#1) arrows. Leave the 2 adjustment knobs(#2) in place.

hoover-self-propel-actuator-fix-4-300x225.jpg
Step 6. If the self-propel adjustment cable HAS NOT broken away from the actuator arm, proceed as follows; mark the position of the cable(#1) in relation to the cable retainer with a black magic marker to avoid having to readjust the cable position. Remove the screw(#2) (usually a Torx T-25 size screw) and cable retainer. Next, using a flat blade screwdriver; slide the ‘C’ ring (#3) off the metal post. Bend the metal bracket up off the post just enough so you can lift the damaged actuator up and off the post. Slide your new actuator arm back over the metal post. Slide the ‘C’ ring back over the post.Lock the self- propel cable back in place with screw and retainer. Test to ensure the power drive is adjusted correctly; CAUTION, YOU ARE ABOUT TO COME VERY CLOSE TO MOVING MACHINERY, NO NECKTIES, NECKLACES, LOOSE SHIRT TAILS,UNACCOUNTED FOR TOOLS OR CLUMSY FINGERS ARE ALLOWED FOR THIS NEXT STEP!!! Reinstall the power drive belt, plug your vacuum cleaner back in and turn it on. Check to make sure the handle is in the neutral position; observe that the power drive is NOT moving. Push the handle slightly forward. You should see the power drive wheels move in the forward position. Pull the handle back, you should see the power drive wheels move in the reverse position. Some finer adjustment may be necessary.
If the power drive cable has broken away from the old actuator; just try to get the new actuator arm as straight as possible. Using the handle and while observing the cable moving back and forth through the retainer area; move the cable all the way forward, then pull it all the back, try to gauge where the middle of the forward and reverse position would be and lock the cable down. Perform testing procedure as in previous paragraph. Again, some fine readjustment may be necessary.

No suction when vacuming floors


Hi.

There are 2 types of Dc07 one is clutched & has two belts the second has only one belt going from motor to brush roller.

Lay machine on its side pull back handle as if you are to vac carpet switch machine on look to see if brush roller is spinning.

If it is not spinning unplug machine from mains supply & remove the sole plate by turning the three plastic screws to unlock position, Lift sole plate away if you have non clutched machine you will now see the brush roller with A belt going from this to the motor shaft belt may have snapped or come off so replace it.

If your Dyson has A clutch unit this engages the brush roller when you pull the handle back to vacuum.

Check the clutch control knob which is at the bottom left side of machine looking from the front.
It should rotate to drive position when handle is pulled back.

If it doesnt turn the knob by hand to drive.

If you still have no brush rotation after doing all this then either the clutch is faulty or the second belt which goes clutch to motor has snapped & will need replacing.

There are service manuals available for these repairs at this site

Self Propelled Feature Has Stopped Working


Does the brush roll turn when it it is on the carpet? The flat belts should be changed often, they stretch and won't turn the brush roll. When you pull back on the handle, does it feel loose or does it feel like you are pulling a cable. It you tilt the handle back, then look down on the right, there is a cable, does it look ok and attached to a nlack plastic part, if not then the actuator is broken. Do the 2 knobs on the nozzle slide back and forth, if not, then the slide may be broken. You may have to take off the top cover and inspect it.
