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.

First - press the circuit breaker button.
If no luck:
1. Make sure you have connected it properly (see diagram here)
2. If you connected it right - try bypassing circuit breaker.
3. Still does not work - make sure the connectors are reconnected properly.

This should take care of the problem.

Hi, My Electrolux twin clean vacuum has both red and blue lights flashing and I can not get it to turn on to clean the filters. Any suggestions


Try taking the twin filters outside - also take a dustpan brush and tap the filters gently on the bottom, then brush the dust away as it comes out. This can take quite some time, and you will find that LOTS of compacted dust will come out!

Clogged sweeper filters changed and hose cleaned, but no dirt collecting in the bag. I am no sure what do do next


You have a rubber flap in the dust collection bin that may have been pulled out causing the collection bin to close when vacuum tries to pass through. Try pushing the flap back in to see if that's the cause of your vacuum loss. To test if this is the cause try turning the cleaner on and feel the outlet leading into the removable bin to see if there is any air flow. If there is no air flow, unplug the vac and run a coat hanger through the inlet tube to find and clear any obstructions. Then take the vacuum outdoors, plug it in and turn it on to clear any dust or debris left in the vacuum chamber.

Electrolux Model 2100 vacuum won't work


hi from uk may i suggest you remove cover and the new dust collection bag then if you look in the bag compartment there is a gauze filter fitted usually grey in colour ? at opposite end of compartment where bag connects this gauze filter is the outlet from bag compartment that the air exhales when vac is operating ie as vac **** up dust into bag the bag has microscopic holes that allow sucked up air and dust to collect but keeps dust from passing into bag chamber but allows air to escape thro holes and so enter bag chamber then escapes via the gauze filter to outside of vac hope you follow this ?? now if this filter is blocked/never been cleaned/changed ? then the symptoms of indicator bag full light will come on you can remove and wash filter if it is gauze typ? dry and refit then try vacuuming ? or replace filter they are not expensive usually in pack of 3 in uk DO NOT RUN VAC WITHOUT THIS FILTER FITTED ! or you will have some dust in the room ? hope this helps?

No more steam coming out.


The channel between the steam chamber on the pump side and the exit chamber of the steam chamber is probably plugged, I opened up the chamber at both ends and cleaned it out with CLR and a heavy wire.

I want to know how remove the filter to clean or replace on my fm744h fantom vacuum


The hepta filter has a place on each side to push in.The top
comes off and the filter is inside.The new one is about 24.00.
Remember to clean the dust filter .This is located in a chamber
below the cannister . Remove the cannister and there is a grey plastic tab,it will comes up and dust filter is right there-pinch
it and it will peal out.It can be hand washed and air dried.

Electrolux Z8240 model vacuum cleaner flashing red & blue 1 every 6 seconds. What could be wrong with it


Inside ,the dust collection container, there at the far end is a white cone shape (another filter). I think you may find this covered in lint etc and if you reach in with your hand you can just pull the stuff off. Happened to me around the two month mark and I THINK, so far, so good. My machine is now not switching off and flashing lights at me and the suction is back to fabulous. Found this information on another obsure website. You would think electrolux would mention it in their "Troubleshooting Guide" GOOD LUCK

Troubleshooting


Plug the hose into the other side of the unit. One end pushes air and the other side draws in the air. Now drywall dust will clog your filter quickly. Clean the filter often. Do not clean dust without the filter. It will get all over everything!

Suction


There is a float in the water collection chamber that closes off the opening below the filter. Make sure that the float is moving freely and the hole under the filter is not obstructed. Reply if this is not the problem, I have one sitting here that I can look at for other possibilities.
