If the filter is clogged would it quit working

Hi there! If the filter is clogged this will cause the vacuum to lose suction and possibly shut-off. Below are instructions to checking and cleaning your filters.

1. Remove the dirt cup. Twist off the dirt cup lid.
2. Remove the filter cartridge from dirt cup.
3. Separate the foam and cartridge filters. Wash foam filter under running. Allow 24 hours to air dry outside the vacuum.
4. Tap the excess dirt out of Hepa filter. Hepa filter may also be washed. Allow 24 hours to air dry.
5. Check the secondary filter by removing the filter cover from base. Rinse the foam filter under running water until it runs clear. Allow 24 hours to air dry.
6. The red baffle tube inside of the dirt cup is apart of the filtration of the vacuum and needs to be cleaned as well. Twist out the baffle tube by turning 1/4 turn clockwise. Remove any hair or debris wrapped around baffle tube. Baffle tube can be rinsed if needed. Allow to dry thoroughly.

If the filters are too dirty they may need to be replaced. With regular maintenance the filters should be replaced about once a year. Follow the links below to order replacement filters for your UH20020.

Exhaust Foam Filter

For the first two years our DC07 worked great, but then it would run for a few minutes and then just quit. After a few minutes it would start again and then quit. We washed the filters and checked the air...

Hi there,

I'm sorry to hear about the difficulties you're having with your DC07. Someone will be in touch to discuss this further and help you resolve the issue shortly.

Best wishes,

The motor sounds quite rough but still runs and cleans fairly well

How old is it?
If it is bagless, are all three filters clean?
Have all filters been in place at all times?
If the motor is rough, there could be something making it off balance: some of the impellar broke off, for instance. Debris could have gotten in if the filters were not in place.
The bearings could be failing if the unit is old and has a lot of hours on it.

No suction

OK - Details details details.....

If the motor turns on and only sucks a little bit or you are experiencing a great loss of suction,.
You have a plug somewhere
Be it a partial block from say a HEPA Filter
or else it is a block in the path of travel where items get sucked up into your vacume.

If you look back to the last time someone used it, was it a fine powder which was cleaned up? then look to the filter (see owners manual for maintenance and or cleaning of the vacume machine) Otherwise is it possible that someone else used it and get it clogged with something larger? Although I'm thinking it is the HEPA filter needing cleaning...

The good news is that if the machine turns on, then you know you have a block somewhere in it, bottom line is you will need to find the clog and you'll be back up and running in no time.

Best regards

Hoover u5720-900 quits running and restarts again after some time

There is one more filter under where the collection tank & Hepa filter sits -- there is one screw that holds the cover down - remove that filter and clean it that will help. I also find I need to vacuum the hepa filter as well- it is too expensive to replace all the time. The Hepa filter can be placed inside a plastic bag and shaken really good to get the dust off of it
