SOURCE: i vacummed some sheetrock duct up with my hoover

do not put the filter in water, it will ruin it. if banging out the filter did not work than you should probably replace it, sheet rock dust is very fine and will easily clog most filters.

SOURCE: no suction with Hoover Elite cyclonic bagless

check your air way to make sure it is not plugged and then if ok you may have to change the filter

Runs but no suction. Something is clogging airway inside the machine

If the bag is not full, filter is not plugged, bag area is sealed tightly, then likely something is caught inside and plugging the hose or the intake tubing.

My fusion just stopped. i was vaccuuming and it

One item to check is this: This unit has a temperature overheat device.
Unplug the unit for 20 minutes, then plug in and turn on the switch. If there was a blockage in the hose/cup/filters, this could cause the overheating.

If this does not resolve the problem, it will need disassembled and checked with a continuity meter to determine the component that failed (motor, switch, cord, or TCO)

Hoover Cyclonic shut down and can't be turned back on?

You will have to check the cord, switch or the motor to see whch has gone bad. There also is a thermo protector on the motor, if it opened up, then the motor won't start.
