SOURCE: Hep! My 3 month old Hoover Mach 5 doesn't pick up!

What is happening is the secondary filters, HEPA and the canister all need to be cleaned. This is vital. What the vacuum repair people are keeping from you is that tidbit of wisdom. This particular vacuum is picky about airflow. Pull the canister, and on the body of the vacuum on top of where the canister sits are the secondary filters. There should be a sticker explaining how to remove them. Clean them throuougly, mine was filthy. Make sure you clean the canister by unlocking it and cleaning out the micro holes and the cone end. Mine was completely plugged. Now brush the dirty side of the HEPA filter with the combo tool. Let the secondary filters dry completely (you can blow dry them on cold) Re-install everything, and the vacuum will run like brand new. I vacuumed the whole house after I completed this maintainence and it works like a champ. Don't return this vac until you clean it completely.

My vacuum blows air instead
Posted by katweaver3 on May 04, 2008
My vacuum blows air instead of sucking air. I have a dirt devil swivel guide. I got something stuck in the brush spinner, got it out...but now the vacuum doesn’t **** stuff up anymore.


Hello,
I would advise you to ALWAYS to FIRST UNPLUG YOUR VACUUM before beginning any service procedure.
Normally if your vacuum has a round belt you may have your belt on backwards, please reverse the belt and the suction will return also you may have a clog in the tube leading up to the bag or dirt cup would be anther reason for the blowing instead of suction. This is not covered under the factory warranty. Feel free to contact your local vacuum dealer for questions.
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 had same problem. Turned out to be the filter that sits above the waste cannister. Remove the waste cannister. There is a little orange lever that releases the filter. It was caked with dirt not allowing any air flow causing the motor to overheat.

This foam filter gets dirty pretty fast.

Sounds like there's a clog in the long hose that connects to the dirt canister. Remove the hose completely and check for clogs. There is a blue plastic piece that the hose is attached to. You can remove it by taking out the two screws in the back, and the four screws behind the dirt canister. Once those are removed, the hose comes away from the vacuum with the blue plastic piece attached. That should allow you to check for clogs. If necessary, take the hose outside or a place that is well lit, so you can visually verify the absence of clogs.

You probably need to change the belts. Here are the belts you need and the manual:

I have a Hoover Nano Cyclonic that doesn't use bags. My daughter took the entire bottom apart because it wasn't sucking up. So she tried to clear everything and also TRIED to put it back together.


You may have a clog in there somewhere,
but still enough suction to pick some dirt up but it doesn't get sucked into the dirt cup and falls out when you turn it off. If your filters are over a year old or not maintained or cleaned frequently they may be restricting the air flow which can lead to clogs.

My hoover nano cyclonic just shut off


It has likely overheated. Let it cool down and see if it comes back on. If so that means something is causing an airflow restriction. Replace filters and check for clogs

My 1 month old Oreck upright is not sucking in anymore. Worked fine for about 3 weeks. Now it just seems to push stuff around. I'm not sure if it is the bags? Ordered what I was told to order.


The intake tube could very well be clogged. Its pretty simple to disassemble. This happens commonly on Oreck, all you need is for something stiff to get lodged sideways in the tube then everything builds up around it.

Hoover nano cyclonic shut off while in use/no suction when turned back on


That is more than likely the problem, NEVER put wet or even damp filters back into your vac

Vacuum picks up some dirt and debris but not all, and spits some back out?


Some blockage at the pickup or in the hose if it uses one---dirt etc being kicked back out is a clear sign of this----if it has a tube check that first, and if a head with turning brush do not miss looking for a blockage there.

I think my son used my vaccuum on his wet Jeep carpets. Now it stinks and is spitting stuff out instead of picking stuff up. Will it ever work again or did he destroy it?


I think the pump is clogged and the vacuum inlet filter has also been clogged up with excess intake of dirt.
You will need to remove both the sectiosn fully to clean out without using the vacuum cleane as it will further damage the unit.
All these machines have a limitation to the dirt and cannot be expected to go on with high level of dirt. So the maintenance must be carried over for the dirt accumulation fo the machine to be back to work efficiently.

Why would my vacumme spit out stuff instead of **** in stuff?


Hi camille,

Sounds like your belt needs to be installed as a figure '8' to reverse the direction.

My deluxe elite rewind vacuum spits out dirt


The elite rewind does not have any fancy features. This sound like you have a blockage in the foot or base of the vac. remove the bottom cover to look under. Also check the hose, it can be in there as well.
