SOURCE: The head on my Hoover Canister vacuum has stopped working

It sounds like the power connection pins, from the handle tube to the powerhead, are not making connection. The pins could have been damaged when you impacted it.

I have two older Filter Queen (brown vacuum cleaners). Besides unclogging the hose area and making sure it is not filled with dirt, what else would cause the machine to run hot and have a high pitched...


High pitched sound is often caused by air leaks in air ducts. This will also cause hoover loosing sucking power and slightly overheating.

If the hoover is overheating a lot, then noise can also come from the motor. In that case the part must be rplaced.

Try replacing the cone filter, the secondary filter, and the insulation at the top of the machine.
If that does not fix the problem, then the hoover must be taken apart to clean or repair the air duct.

I have no suction with my Hoover Mach 5 vacuum.


I had a similar problem. Two things to try. There is a lock symbol on the canister you need to ling it up with the mark on the top (the silver part has a line on it). It can be assembles 3 different ways. Also I over looked the sticker in the back of the canister compartment indicating a filter in the top of the canister compartment. There is an orange lever there to release the filter. Hope this helps.

I have a hoover windtunnel bagless that the filter fell out of on accident when I was trying to dump it and I can't figure out how to put it back in


Hi, You don't say which model windtunnel you have but most are the same. The canister is in two sections with a Hoover emblem to the right of the handle. this is the side the filter goes on. The bracket slides out and holds the round filter, the round filter snaps into the bracket so that the end of the filter with the opening goes down to fit the hole in the bottom of the canister. When putting the canister back in the vacuum be sure the top goes back flat on the canister and the locking lever is open all the way. You have to slide the canister back in level and then it will drop down into position you can't tilt it. now you can lock it. Good Luck!

Cord is stuck out full length


Not sure if you're posing about the Hoover since you're in the Hoover S1361 forum, or the electrolux.

I had similar frustrating problems with my hoover and made a blog post on how to take it apart and fix it here.
