If the smoking at the base smells like burned rubber it's probably your belt. If it smells electrical it's probably your motor or an electrical problem.

Bag light wont turn off


Hi there! The vacuum may be still sensing dirt in the cleaner. Try wiping the area down in and around the bag port. Be sure you are replacing the bag with a genuine Hoover Type Q bag. Also, when assembling the bag remember to slide the red bag door lock to the right to lock it on. If the check bag indicator light still comes on there may be an issue with the sensor on the vacuum. We would recommend taking your vacuum in to a Hoover authorized service center for repair. Hope this helps! Service Center Locator

My Hoover wind tunnel keeps overheating and the red I dictator is on. I have cleaned all filters and checked for clogs....could the motor have dust in it? How do I check?


Okay. I read these posts and decided to take the advice of checking the hose.
I had cleaned all filters, checked all hose (as-is) and did belt checks, etc.
The indicator was always showing red and it would shut down after about 5 minutes.
It ended up being a clog that I discovered after taking the hose completely off and seeing a clump right where the hose detaches. I began swinging the hose round and round and sure enough, more cat hair clumpls shot out. Big clumps.
So, you literally need to check every inch of hose to find the culprit.
After that, my indicator stayed green and it works like a charm.
Best wishes, Mike D

Hoover vacuum cleaner indicators stuck


the sensor is located in the tube that the bag mounts to, if you take the bag off of the unit and have an air compressor handy you can blow out the port hole this should dislodge the particulates that are causing the false reading, there is defintely a clog in the system. let me know if this helps thanks Don the Vacuum Doctor Alb, N.M.

The belt on my hoover will not stay on. It falls


Okay. I would suggest that you have a problem with your roller brush. If the roller becomes clogged with hair/debris, the bearings will sieze, and sometimes even melt the plastic. the roller then has a difficult time turning and will break the belt. If the belt is slipping off, I would suggest that you either have a worn belt, the wrong belt, Or, your "windtunnel" (the half cylindrical insert the roller sets in) is missing. this insert has a "belt guide" that keeps your belt aligned. hope this helps!!!

I am using a hoover ultra steam cleaner but the red ball keeps coming to the top . I assume this indicates it is full and ready to empty however it is still empty . The red ball will not stay down in order...



Thankyou,

The redball indicates that it is full, that is due to the high resistence its suction system is inducing, because it is empty and it still stays up, I would try to turn the power settings a little lower, or it is experiencing high pressure from operation. Also, if you could adjust the bristles, or losen around the air vents. This should do the trick.
Thankyou, :)

Red light stays on


It sounds like the plates inside the vacuum that detect the dirt have become dirty. I don't remember where they are, but I think they're accessible if you remove a certain hose. Again, I don't know which hose it is.

Embedded dirt finder light stuck


Try cleaning out all the pathways you can get to. Trapped particles can mess up this indicator. Particularly check the extra mesh filter that is under the bag (there's a plastic grid that snaps over it to hold it into place). Clean that out and make sure the bag is securely in place.
