Question about Hoover Zen Whisper Multi-Cyclonic Canister Vacuum
I turned it off between rooms and it won't turn back on. The canister has been emptied, it was given time to cool down, and it still won't turn on. We've had this thing for only a couple of months.

I may have figured out a way to make this thing work. If you find that the problem is the flimsy, floppy piece of plastic that I mentioned above, I think that the thing to do is figure out a way to make the narrow sticking out fin-like section that activates the switch wider. I think what happens is that fin slips over to one side or another and then does flip the switch. What I just did is cut a hard rubber washer into two half circles (or approximate half circles) and attached those on each side of that fin. So now I have a nice wide switch activator. I attached the pieces with exterior mounting tape. I imagine that some sort of adhesive could be used too, as long as it is not something that would dissolve the plastic.

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.

While I'm having a different problem, the problem you guys are experiencing can easily be fixed by cleaning the two internal filters. My vacuum did the same thing, just stopped running mid-stream. Remove the main filter cup. Look inside the cavity of the vacuum and you'll see a grey bar at the bottom of the cavity, pull this up and you'll find the first of two washable filters. Just rinse it under warm water squeezing as you rinse until the water runs clear. The roll the filter in a few paper towels or towel and unroll, reroll until completely dry - should only take a few minutes. Then, look in the same cavity except up top there is another filter which seems to be hidden. The back wall of the inside cavity will guide you to these filters as well. You will be amazed by the difference cleaning these will make in the suction power of your vacuum. Also, if you remove the belt cover and clean out the hose in this area it will improve suction as well. Hope this helps. Now, if I could just get the darn belt back on mine. First belt smoked and popped. Bought replacement belt, smoked and popped within seconds... HELP!!!
