Sounds like a wire has come loose and is grounding on the handle.

Got a dyson dc14! Original. When hoovering i went to pick the wire up down by the bottom and got a shock. Is this just static? Is it normal? When using on carpets?


You stated you "went to pick the wire up down by the bottom and got a shock". If the wire was just a piece of wire that happened to be on your floor then you likely got a shock from static electricity. There should be no wires exposed on your vacuum so if the wire came from your vacuum that could be an electrical problem that could be very dangerous.

I have a Hoover V Steam Vac model F7412. The tank for the clean water and cleaner fluid leaked out the bottom. I purchased a new tank but something in that area is still leaking. I know it is not the...


My clean solution tank is leaking from the bottom, too. It is not a hose or a valve. The clean solution tank is leaking in-between the clear plastic walls of the solution tank & the grey plastic bottom that are connected, together. I was thinking of caulking it all around the bottom where the clear plastic sides join the grey bottom plastic. I can't get into ordering a new one (spending $) unless Hoover will send me a new one for free. Purchased at Kohl's in Massapequa, NY in June 2008. There's a one year warrantee AND the directions say to EMPTY the solution tank after each use. Which I normally do because the tank runs dry.

I received a NEW dyson ball vacuum for Christmas. I have noticed when I vacuum with it that dirt collects all over the ball and the vacuum beater head. Is this normal. I have had the regular upright...


This may sound silly, but it sounds like that you a have static electricity problem. If the dust is collecting on top (outside of the brush head that is probably the static attracting it. This is common during the colder months. You know how during these months when you walk across carpet and then just someone or a metal objest, you get a shock.
You might try lightly spraying a little "static guard" on the top of the brush head before using it, or using a carpet dusting product that smells good, and may reduce the static.

Hoover Windtunnel Bagless bolt fell off


With this self propell series, the entire bottom needs to come apart to re-install the nut. if it is one month old I would highly recommend taking it in for warranty service. What plastic is melted?

My Hoover will not turn on


there was probably a leak in the hose/piping near the pump in the vacuum that shorted out the motor. you will need a new motor for the vacuum. you will also need a new pump assembly. i strongly recommend that you also replace all the internal tubing and places where the pipes join.

Dirt finder sensor stopped working


I had the same problem with a hoover windtunnel 6200 - u5477-900. I removed the flexible hose from top of the plastic tube running vertically along the right side of the back of the vacuum. When I used a flashlight to look into the plastic tube, I could see a clog at the bottom, where the flexible hose curved frontwards towards the brushes. I then removed the 2 screws holding the vertical plastic tube to the vacuum. When I disconnected the plastic tube from the flexible hose at the bottom, I found a clog of dirt and dog hair. After removing the clog and reassembling, the clean / dirty light now moves back and forth from red to green.
