SOURCE: Hoover Z-400 - Hepa Filter

These filters should be changed at least once a year, they get clogged up and won't clean out. So I would try a new filter and go from there, make sure there are no clogs in the hose and down below where the dirt inlet is.

SOURCE: Hoover Empower Widepath Vacuum Doesn't ****

This model requires the lower end of the hose to be installed into the base unit to pick up the dirt. If it is properly installed, I would check the belt and also look for a blockage. The normal life span of a belt is about 9-12 months. your belt # 40201190 2 pk

Troubleshooting hoover


Hi! Here are some basic trouble shooting steps for the Presto 2-in-1.

1. Remove the dirt cup. Push the release catch on the hand vac and pull the dust container off the motor unit
2. Remove dust container from filter assembly and cyclone separator.
3. Hold the dust container over trash can and tap out debris.
4. Check cyclone separator for additional debris, empty into trash can
5.Check the rinsable filter. If rinsing is needed, remove rinsable filter, rinse with pleated side facing up. Allow filter to completely dry for at least 24 hours.
6. Remove any hair and debris from the brush roll.
7. Remove the floor nozzle from the cleaner by pressing the nozzle release button on the back of the floor nozzle and pulling from cleaner.
8. Check and clear nozzle of any obstructions.
Hope this helps!

Hoover dm6200 blowing air


check your suction hose again, follow it to where it goes into the body of the machine. I assume this will be near where the bagless cannister is. Remove the bagless cannister and look up inside to where the attachment hose should come into the cannister. I believe you are still blocked up there. using a butter knife or something along those lines should free up the blockage.
Also, if that is all clear, try re-adjusting the dirt cannister as it may not be on properly to create your suction flow through the hose.
Good luck and let me know if I can help further.

Take to Walmart, plug it in and start to vacuum THEIR floors!
Try removing the dust container and look for anything blocking airflow including the HEPA filter. Make sure the dust cup has a seal where it joins the vacuum. The fix is probably simple, but it shouldn't be up to you to do so!

Vacuum is spitting dirt and debris out the back--what can I do?


the first thing you should do is clean out the container then check the filter if it looks dirty with a lot of dust it probably needs replacing.
check the hoes for dirt that might stick up.if the problem continues it needs a service.

DOES NOT VACUUM NOW


Several possible problems:
1) Did you clean the blue lower pickup container (dirty water) before putting it away?
Take out the pickup container and open it up, check the filter (under the little blue piece on top) and also open up the container itself and clean under the flapper on the "screen".
2) Look inside the housing and check the vac hose that goes from the front of the unit up to the rubber grommet where it goes into the lower pickup container. Is it clogged? If yes, take off the front pickup (the part the runs along the floor in front of the rotating brushes) and run a very narrow lint pickup brush (like for cleaning dryer vents) and clean out the hose. It works great.
3) Check the front pickup for clogs and clean
4) If you are trying to pick up water, make sure the setting is set to wet. If you are trying to use it as a vacuum, set it to dry.

Hope this helps.

Filter keeps clogging

Dust etc collects in the filter above the dust container. The dust container remains empty. Hoover then over heats and cuts out. Collect in replaced new filters in Hoover but problem still remains.

Hello,
I would advise you to ALWAYS to FIRST UNPLUG YOUR VACUUM before beginning any service procedure. My question is how old is the Hoover vacuum? If it less than a year you should really see an Authorized Hoover vacuum cleaner dealer that the problem might be covered under a factory warranty. This should not be happening and it sound to me like there is a clog somewhere in the vacuum fill area that is causing it to do this to you and the vacuum. You are lucky that you have a thermal switch that does shut it off. If not and it is over the one year factory warranty then you should see a local vacuum cleaner dealer in your area or contact Hoover Cust Serv @ the website and or phone 3 listed below. 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.

Poor suction-need to know how to remove & clean filter under canister of Hoover Wind Tunnel Mach 4.7 Twin Chamber System.


I assume this is a Hoover Bagless, if poor suction, the hose or dirt inlet by the brush roll may have a clog. The filter inside the dirt container may need replacement. Some had a screw to take out to remove the cover for the filter, the one under where hte dirt container sits. Alos the belt may be stretch and won't turn the brush roll under load. Having the model number would help.
