Sounds like you have a small clog in the hose in the head cleaner. Unplug the machne, turn it upside down on the floor with the brushed facing up. Look at the hose that comes from the underneath to where it connects to the expandable hose. Most of the time the clog is in that area. The debris stays in the hose ans it just does not have enough power to go all the way to the bag area from lack of suction. When you disconnect the hose the particles fall back down and the spinning brush kicks it all over the place. If it has a screw holding the hose in place unscrew it and push something solid through the hose. No not use anything sharp or use eccessive force as you can tear the hose. Try losening it then hook up the hose and turn it on to see if the suction from the hose clears it out.

Hope this helps.

Hoover troubleshooting


Hello! The umbrella tube is a stationary part, it does not rotate. The dirt that enters in the dirt cup spins around the umbrella tube. If no dirt is entering into the dirt cup this can mean there is a blockage either in your hoses and/or your filters. Try these quick trouble shooting steps below.

1. Remove the dirt cup canister from the vacuum. Twist off the dirt cup lid.
2. Remove the primary foam filter. Hold filter under running water until water runs clear. Allow 24 hours to air dry. If the filter is really dirty it may need to be replaced.
3. Slide the Hepa filter out. Tap the filter against the trash can until dirt stops falling. Replace the Hepa filter. (Do not wash)
4. Remove the hose from both ends. Use a broom stick to gently loosen and clear any clogs from hose.
5. Use a wooden spoon or something similar to loosen and remove any clogs from the lower hose. Hope this helps!

How to replace thermal overload switch pacvac 700


Hey there! The thermal protector sensor can not be replaced. It protects the vacuums motor from overheating and burning out. If the vacuum is overheating, follow these quick trouble-shooting steps.

1. Remove the hose from the vacuum from both ends.
2. Use a broom stick to gently loosen and remove any clogs from the hose.
3. Remove the bottom plate and the brushes. Use a wooden spoon to gently break up and remove any clogs from the lower hose.
4. Clean the pleated filter inside the dirt cup by tapping it against the trash can until the dirt stops falling. This filter should be replaced at least once a year.
5. The pre-filter can be cleaned with a brush and then rinsed with water. Allow 24 hours to air dry outside the dirt cup.
6. Clean the secondary filter located behind the grill in the bottom of cleaner cavity. Remove the screw, and grill to access filter.
7. Rinse the filter in cold water with a mild detergent to clean. Allow 24 hours to air dry outside the vacuum.

Following these steps should stop the cleaner from overheating. Hope this helps!

New carpet has clogged the vacume hose. How do I clear it out


The easiest way I've found is to disconnect the hose at both ends, and GENTLY push a broom handle through it while removing the stuff from the other end. Unhooking it allows you to lay the hose straight. Adjust your head height to where you just hear it hitting the carpet, then raise it one notch. The brush is designed to (and this is a secret the salesmen won't tell you) just touch the top of the carpeting to get it moving so the dirt becomes loose, the suction does the rest. Too low and it just forces the carpet to lay over and traps most of the dirt.

How to hook up tool to clean upholstery


Keep your upholstered furniture looking fresh by vacuuming it regularly with the upholstery tool attached to your vacuum's hose. Prevent the fabric from fading (or at least delay this) by keeping your furniture out of direct sunlight -- close blinds, shades or curtains when the sun shines most directly through windows closest to the upholstery. And remove stains by blotting them with a dry cleaning solvent. Before steam cleaning your upholstered furniture, read the piece's cleaning code label to determine whether or not it is safe to do so. Then rent or buy a steam cleaner (also called an extractor) and follow the directions below.

  1. Rent a steam cleaner or purchase one; buy steam cleaner solution.
  2. Step 2 Vacuum the upholstery on the furniture you wish to steam clean; use the upholstery attachment to most effectively **** up loose debris.
  3. Step 3 Test the steam-cleaner solution on the upholstery in an inconspicuous place to ensure the color won't be steamed out or drastically altered.
  4. Step 4 Attempt to remove any stains with a stain removal or dry cleaning solution. Follow the directions that come with the product you choose for the best results, and allow the stain remover to dry before you begin steam cleaning.
  5. Step 5 Remove cushions and, if necessary, arm covers.
  6. Step 6 Gently apply the steaming water and cleaning solution in straight lines across the upholstery one section at a time.
  7. Step 7 Use the cleaning extension on the steam cleaner to **** up as much water as possible. The dirt will come out with the water.
  8. Step 8 Clean one side each cushion (then allow it to dry) before cleaning the other side. If the cushions are permanently attached to the furniture, clean them last.
  9. Step 9 Allow the furniture to dry completely before repeating the steam-cleaning process or replacing the cushions.

I have a dirt devil featherlite deluixe carpet shampooer and lost manual, how do i use to clean my furniture?


remove the "remove to attach hose" plate.. that is where the hose connects, plug the solution line into the little nipple below the tank on the right side. then you turn it on. Suction will be redirected to the hose, and the trigger on the hose sprays the solution.

The vaccum doesn't pick up dirt, it sprays out


There is probably a second or third filter (besides the canister) that needs to be cleaned.
I doubt that it's rotating the wrong direction.

Furniture cleaning isn't a science: try out a few techniques before choosing the one that is right for your belongings. This step-by-step guide explains how to clean a sofa:
  1. Before using any upholstery cleaning products, vacuum the sofa or chair first to remove as much surface dirt and dust as possible. Be sure to use the correct attachments to avoid damage to the material - a soft brush attachment is ideal.
  1. Spot Clean. Using baby wipes or vinegar poured onto a strong microfiber cloth, apply to any obvious stains, wiping gently as you go. Remember to test the upholstery cleaning products on an inconspicuous area first.
  1. Overall Clean. Using soapy water and a microfibre cloth, gently wipe your sofa with the solution, allowing it to soak into the fabric and tackle the dirt beneath the surface. You only want to use a very small amount of water - don't saturate the material.
  1. Dry. Some people use a hairdryer to quickly dry a sofa, but allowing it to dry naturally is always the better option, if you have the time. To speed things up, open windows and allow the breeze to help with the drying process.

I can't get solution to come through my hose attachement to clean furniture

Hello,
I would advise you to ALWAYS to FIRST UNPLUG YOUR VACUUM before beginning any service procedure. Hoover F5881-900 Vacuum. It sound to me that you may have a defective pump or switch, the sprayer or solution should not spray out unless you use the trigger. Question? How old is the machine – if it is less than one year this would be covered under the Hoover factory warranty and if it is more than one year than you may want to check the trouble shooting part of the owner’s manual or to call the Hoover tech support line @ the factory. 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.

Dirt finder sensor stopped working


I had the same problem with a hoover windtunnel 6200 - u5477-900. I removed the flexible hose from top of the plastic tube running vertically along the right side of the back of the vacuum. When I used a flashlight to look into the plastic tube, I could see a clog at the bottom, where the flexible hose curved frontwards towards the brushes. I then removed the 2 screws holding the vertical plastic tube to the vacuum. When I disconnected the plastic tube from the flexible hose at the bottom, I found a clog of dirt and dog hair. After removing the clog and reassembling, the clean / dirty light now moves back and forth from red to green.
