Question about Hoover U8143-900 Upright Vacuum

1 Answer

Filter I bought this Hoover a few years ago-- just now about to use it first time. I cannot find my user's manual and don't know how to change the filter-- or to clean it or whatever I am supposed to do with it. Also, there is a handle on one side of the unit that seems to be attached to an empty chamber or canister kind of thing. It looks like it should pull out, but it does not budge. I really would like to have a manual, but can't seem to find one. Is there a similar model that is still being made that I could download a manual for?

I purchased a Hoover WindTunnel

I purchased a Hoover WindTunnel 2 model#u8361900 in Dec 2007.I am very disappointed because the self cleaning filter is not turning and particles keep clogging in that area. I have manually removed the particles but the filter will not turn. I also haven't been able to use the pet brush for some time. The cleaner has not been used hard about once a week since it was purchased. I am not happy that this product has stopped working efficiently since purchased 6 months ago. Thank you Marcia Long Pottstown Pa
Hello,
I would advise you to ALWAYS to FIRST UNPLUG YOUR VACUUM before beginning any service procedure. I sorry you are having a problem with the Hoover WindTunnel Vacuum Model #U8361-900 but I never heard of a filter that you say is self cleaning and NOT turning. I have never seen a filter that turns inside the chamber, the dust and dirt basically go around and circulate around the filter and you can clean the filter by either brushing it off, vacuuming it off or using some type of brush to clean off the filter such as and old paint brush or if you have some type of blower system – that would work as well. You said your vacuum is less than one year old so I would contact your local factory authorized Hoover dealer in your area or to cal the cust serv @ the Hoover factory listed below. 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.

How often should I change a Hoover Empower filter?

Hello,
I would advise you to ALWAYS to FIRST UNPLUG YOUR VACUUM before beginning any service procedure.
Depending on what type of filter it is, the suggested change for a filter is every 6 months to one year if it is a cartridge filter or HEPA filter, if it is a filter that can be vacuumed off or it might be a washable filter – you can clean it that way until the filter starts to fall apart – then @ that time you would want to replace it @ that time. Please check with you local vac dealer. Filters
It's important to replace your vacuum filter or HEPA filter regularly to keep your Hoover vacuum working best. Not only will this increase the life of your vacuum, it will also keep unwanted dust, dirt and allergens out of the air. Keep your home Hoover clean with genuine Hoover filters.
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.

Does not pick up water
Posted by Dreams642 on Apr 20, 2008
I have had my Hoover Floormate for years. It has always worked great but the last few times I used it the amount of water left is tremendous and the container for dirty water was not full at all. I looked at it and the hose going up from the bottom thru the handle is broken how do I fix this.

Hello,
I would advise you to ALWAYS to FIRST UNPLUG YOUR VACUUM before beginning any service procedure. Hoover Floormate H3000 Upright Wet/Dry Vacuum. You can down load the owner manual from the Hoover website www.hoover.com . It looks like the one of the holding or recovery tanks my not be in place, leaking, cracked or damaged, or the clear tube is leaking and needs replacing. I looked 2 the owner’s manual and it does not show the clear tube but the vacuum does come apart and just back track the clear tube and mark the screws when you disassemble the unit. Other wise , please call the factory or a local Hoover warranty station in your area. 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.

Hoover Z-400 - Hepa Filter


These filters should be changed at least once a year, they get clogged up and won't clean out. So I would try a new filter and go from there, make sure there are no clogs in the hose and down below where the dirt inlet is.

U5470-900 stuck switch


I had the same problem twice already. The first time it was under warranty and my local vac & sew shop fixed it for free. The second time was shortly after warranty expired, so I just bought the switch and replaced myself. Have only had it for 2 years, so we'll see if I have to replace the switch again in a year.
