My Dirt Devil Reaction vacuum cleaner has a plugged hose.

Hi! A broom stick or something similar is probably the best tool you can use to remove a clog. Try pushing the broomstick in an up and down motion gently against the clog until it starts to loosen and slide out. If you are unable to remove the clog the hose can be replaced. I have included a link where you may go to purchase a replacement hose if needed. Good luck!

I accidently sucked up a pen cap and it stopped working then it began smoking and the belt snapped??

Take the pen cap out of where it is stuck and replace the belt. Most likely the smoke was from the belt slipping around the gear and getting hot. Did the smoke smell like burning rubber?

I sucked up a piece of plastic. Removed plastic.

This style machine picks up the dirt/debris with the roller, sends it through a fan and into the bag/cup. This is a very common problem since a plastic fan turning at 2000 rpm meeting anything hard is going to cause damage. (Loose Change, toys, anything small) This fan creates your suction and when it is damaged it creates none, it also is the "noisy" part of any vacuum and becomes extremely noisy when damaged.

To Replace this part:
  1. Remove hood (4 screws underneath)
  2. Remove handle assembly ( one bolt through handle and slide off)
  3. remove the belt
  4. Remove the 2 brackets on each side of the motor that hold it in place. (4 screws)
  5. Lift motor off base assy.
  6. Remove rubber cuff around top of motor assy.
  7. Remove the 6 screws on large size of motor assy. and remove cap.
  8. Turn fan (or whats left of it) off of spindle by holding belt drive spindle on oppisite side of the motor.
  9. Replace fan and reassemble.
You can also take this to most any Hoover authorized service center, they would have the parts in stock and could probably do it for less than 50 dollars. Check their dealer locator for a local center.

Best of Luck!

Piece of chalk sucked into vacuum

Yes, it is stuck somewhere in the vacuum. Turn it upside down, and you will probably find it lodged. Also could be lodged in hose somewhere.

Clogged hose and can not get the handle off

The best way to fix this problem is to Stick the other end of the handle into the wall inlet making the nozzle contact the pin jacks of the wall inlet. You may need to work the clog back and forth by then plugging the hose in normally. Eventually you will be able to work the clog out of the hose.

If all else fails you should use a plumbers snake.

Toy stuck in hose

Generally, this is a job for patience!  First, remove the hose from the unit.  Try a broom handle to push the toy will not damage the hose.  If that doesn't work, you can use a piece of stiff wire fed through the hose with hooked end.  An electrician's fishtape...a often useful.

Hoover Agility steam cleaner

Sounds like you have a broken water line, or it just came off. You would have to remove the top housing to get to the water lines. Or at the bottom of where the solution tank sits on, is the reservior asm. there are lines going there also. Bottom of the tank, the valve is stuck open. The trigger on the handle is stuck pushing down on the reservior asm.
