Ok, lfitz, I fixed my problem. First I called the Sears Service Center. They told me that I would have to drop it off there, and they would send it to Orlando to get looked at. The whole process would take about 2 weeks and who knows how much money. So I decided to become my own Hoover technician. It turns out that my original diagnosis was right about the chord that electrically connects the power on/off switch at the top of the handle to the rest of the vacuum. This was extremely easy to fix so please don't be scared away, although it does require a little philips-head screwdriver action. As always, make sure the vacuum is unplugged before you start. On the back of the vacuum, there is the hook that you wrap the electrical chord around for storage (the top one). On either side of that hook are two screws. Unscrew those. Now, the small piece of plastic that has the hook on it can be carefully pulled back, or removed if you need to. Inside, I found the detached end of a coiled black electrical chord that looks kind of like an A/C adapter. This chord should be plugged into the bottom of the metal shaft that slides in and out to allow you to adjust the height of the handle. Now, adjust the metal shaft so that you can plug the black chord back into the base. Push the chord in until you hear it click. Now, put the plastic piece back in place and put the screws back in and you're done. Plug it in and give it a try. I hope this helps.

SOURCE: Overheating Hoover

Most likely caused by a lack of airflow. Check to see if you have airflow at the end of the hose. If not, Remove all of the hoses and ensure that they are not clogged. If there is airflow through the hose; check the air inlet immediately aft of the brushroll, inside the nozzle. This is a very common place for clogs to form.

Also note: contrary to some manufacturers claims, you can not clean (or wash, for that matter;) a hepa filter. The small particles are too embedded in the filter media to ever get completely removed, and the act of cleaning tends to damage the filters, even if you can't see the damage. This is why bagless life-spans, on average, are half the length of the life-spans of bagged vacuums.

Good luck,

SOURCE: WindTunnel HEPA Filter won't spin

I just fixed my HEPA filter not rotating!!

It involves taking apart the vacuum HEPA area. All screws are the same size. There are a LOT of 'em. Really straightforward putting it back together too.

ok, once you take the HEPA canister area off the vacuum, careful with the wires! Unplug them from the controller board. You open up the HEPA chamber by removing more screws until you see where the motor that turns the filter is mounted on the side. Remove motor from the green chamber. Note where the washer goes. Once the motor is off, you'll see that the center hub that drives the HEPA filter is rounded out. What I did was jam little bits of aluminum from a pop can into the space between the circle and the square to force the walls back to square. I started by folding a little piece of aluminum over and over so it was about three layers thick. Jammed that in. That wasn't quite enough thickness so I shoved another piece with it. If you can find something that is about 4 times the thickness of a pop can aluminum, that'd probably work too. Slight wedge shape on the tip would help. Any sort of tiny shim.

To test your work, just put a couple of holder screws into the HEPA cannister housing, plug in the cover/switch, plug in the HEPA moter. Turn it on for a few seconds to make sure the filter turns. Then you can add more thickness to the hub or put things back together.

SOURCE: No Suction

The water channel hose could be torn. you can check by removing the lower tank and tilting it backwards, it is located in the lower section. could also be the filter cover. it is needed for full suction control.

Vacuum will be working and then it cuts out, like it loses power. Plug it into a different outlet and it starts working again.


Your vacuum has a thermal reset built into the motor. If it is getting to hot it will shut off and won't turn on until it cools down. This is a sign of a clog somewhere or the filters need to be replaced. If you are getting dust building up on the vacuum that is an indicator the filters may need replaced.

The vacuum cleaner is not sucking it has been cleaned out so is not jammed up anywhere it just won't ****.


Have you checked the filters?
It is true, you have a bag less machine-- and it catches the big dirt particles in the cyclone device--
But above that are a couple filters-- When they get dirty, you can't have any vacuum!
They really should be cleaned each time you empty the Cyclone section of debris.

Remove them, and tap them clean-- or replace them with new--

I trust that you have already checked the hose-- and it is not clogged?--
Often you can clean the hose, by reversing it-- so that you clean it from the handle, backward into the machine..

NO CYCLONIC ACTION IN DUST CUP


Look for ALL the filters. You may be suprised that most cyclonic vacuums have 3 filters. These get clogged up quickly and when that happens the cyclonic action stops completely. Look under the clear cyclone dirt catcher, there is usually a dust filter there and it gets stopped up real easy. Look at the back of the machine, there is usually one back there too. Check the hose going into the vacuum cleaner as well. In short, follow the hoses in the same way the dirt would follow them. Somewhere along the path, there is a stopped up filter. I do this everywhere I go. Nobody ever cleans these things out.

My Dyson D17 won't work while upright.


check and make sure you have the gasket installed correctly that goes on the center of the cyclone and seals against the canister trap door. If this is backwards, you can lose a lot of suction and it will plug your permanent filter quickly.

Canister


The filters are not clean on both sides. Check the main filter at the top and the internal filters for each side, clear and brush cleanly and gently to remove all clogged dirt as well as checking the hose and inspection airways i.e. when the bin is taken off check the holes behind it and behind the beater bar for any clogging material.

If the filters have been washed and installed back in instantly there wont be any suction. Check the top filters have been cleaned thoroughly and also check inspection tubes/hose and dust channels to check for a clog. Also check the sole plate / bottom of where the beater bar as there may be a clog somewhere.

Clogged filter


I found that the rubber seal on the bottom of my cyclone is not properly seated to the bottom of canister, I guessed when I removed the clear canister bin completely from cyclone unit for cleaning, I put the cyclone down on the floor and rubber seal accidentally move upward just a little. this creates a small gap on the bottom when I reassembled it, (since seal is up from it original position a little). I pulled rubber seal down to its original position, you will notice that there should not be a gap on the bottom at all, this way you do not have to clean or should not have to clean the filter but once a month or even less.
