Any appliance store should carry them. If not, write to Hoover vacuum division and request the filter.

Check the hose and dirt inlet for a blockage. Also the brush roll, check it to see if you can turn it or not by hand. If not, then something may have jammed it.

SOURCE: WindTunnel HEPA Filter won't spin

I just fixed my HEPA filter not rotating!!

It involves taking apart the vacuum HEPA area. All screws are the same size. There are a LOT of 'em. Really straightforward putting it back together too.

ok, once you take the HEPA canister area off the vacuum, careful with the wires! Unplug them from the controller board. You open up the HEPA chamber by removing more screws until you see where the motor that turns the filter is mounted on the side. Remove motor from the green chamber. Note where the washer goes. Once the motor is off, you'll see that the center hub that drives the HEPA filter is rounded out. What I did was jam little bits of aluminum from a pop can into the space between the circle and the square to force the walls back to square. I started by folding a little piece of aluminum over and over so it was about three layers thick. Jammed that in. That wasn't quite enough thickness so I shoved another piece with it. If you can find something that is about 4 times the thickness of a pop can aluminum, that'd probably work too. Slight wedge shape on the tip would help. Any sort of tiny shim.

To test your work, just put a couple of holder screws into the HEPA cannister housing, plug in the cover/switch, plug in the HEPA moter. Turn it on for a few seconds to make sure the filter turns. Then you can add more thickness to the hub or put things back together.

SOURCE: Filter in Hoover Wind Tunnel Vacuum

Definitely not. Do not use water or any liquids to clean it. Te normal use life is 2-3 years keeping it maintained. You can clean it dry with the dust brush from your vac attachments. place in a plastic bag and tap it some folks even us an air compressor to blow out the impacted dirt. you will only want to use the Hoover brand, other generic brands dont fit as well.

SOURCE: water leaking from out of the heppa filter

Reasons for that to happen:
a) You have tilted the vac while vacuuming
b) Used the Rainbow without separator (basket like thing on the bottom of the motor)
c) Overfilled the rainbow tank with water (may have happened when shampooing with AquaMate)

Clean and install back the separator, remove HEPA, Set the Rainbow on empty water pan (with HEPA removed) turn it on for a while so everything will dry. Install new HEPA.

You will have to get a new HEPA filter (you can find them HERE)

Good Luck,
Rocky

SOURCE: need a filter for rowenta infinium vacuum cleaner

Although it sounds to me like you have a clog in your hose (remove hose and try slipping a heavy butter knife through it, end to end) here is a link to Rowenta manual..lists part numbers for replacement parts.

Throws dust all over. Missing hepa filter. Is that the problem?


Of course. The filter is there for a reason and it also maintains pressure. But also make sure that the seals to the container are good and that it is located correctly.

Check and make sure you have cleaned all of the filters. Sometimes they hide filters where you do not expect them to be and they will be clogged with lint and dirt. Some Hoovers have as many as three different filters.

My hoover upright started blowing instead of vacuuming; it blows out of the attachment connection also when I try to use that.


Is this a bagless vacuum? Some Hoovers work in the opposite from conventional designs; the dirt is blown into dirt cup instead of sucked into a paper bag. If you have this type of vacuum, check the HEPA filter (and any prefilter, if applicable) and gently clean it so as not to damage the filter media.

If this does not help, please resubmit your request with a model number.

Good luck from Detroit, MI.

What filters do i need for the eureka the boss bagless vacuum w/widetrack modal 4495


There is a Cassette Micron Filter 60696.If you have a HEPA cartridge filter you need EUREKA's HEPA part 61500.In earlier models there is a micron filter instead of a HEPA filter--for that you need EUREKA's Micron part 60801. But if you have that HEPA filter, the manual says you have to use the HEPA filter to achieve the closed HEPA filtration system again.

Can not get filters


Hi,
While you are looking for a new filter, you could do this(as written in the instruction manual):
1. Hold the HEPA filter
by the edges and vigorously
"TapClean" the HEPA Filter
dirty side down on a hard,
flat surface until no more
dust is observed falling out
from between the pleats of
the filter.
2.
We recommend washing the HEPA filter
once a month or when suction
appears to be reduced. Let the HEPA
filter air dry completely for 24 hours.
3. Rinse the non-woven pre-filter and let
it air dry completely for 24 hours.
4. Insert the non-woven pre-filter.
5. Reinstall the HEPA filter in the
vacuum.
Have a good day.

Does the hoover runabout u427-930 have a filter? I replaced the belt and next to the light bulb was a square gray mat that looked like a filter covering a screen full of holes that looked like the motor...


From doing a search on the internet and hoovers website it looks as if this unit does not have a filter. Such as a hepa that needs to be replaced or that is washable. So i think you are safe and dont need to worry about it.

Does my Dyson Animal vacuum have a hepa filter?


The HEPA filter is not a cleanable item. The pre-motor filter is the washable one.

Hepa filter


you generally dont clean hepa filters .. you replace them .. temporarily you can tap them on the driveway to loosen up the big particles .. but the filter normally is replaced ... there are some filters that are washable in hot soapy water .. but hepa filters are normally not ..

No suction in the hose for the hand held tools at all


Hi I had the same problem and my Hepa filter was clogged. You may wanna check that.
I hope that helps. This is my 4th Windtunnel and I hate this one also. I loved all the rest.
