You may have a clog in the vacuum somewhere

Testimonial: "I checked the hose and it's not clogged.....Is there another place to check? Thank you!"

    Start where the air is sucked into the vacuum down by the brushroll. There is usually a tube there. Follow the airflow to the bag looking for any restrictions. Most vacuums have at least two filters. If you give me your model number I can check.

SOURCE: Bag was full, changed it, the unit now turns off

Try dialing the control valve to the mid way position. If the unit still shuts down with the bag full light on you have a damaged control valve under the dial on the top of the vac.
This valve failure is common in this model and can only be repaired by someone with original AERUS Electrolux repair parts, generally at an AERUS repair shop.

SOURCE: How do you replace the bag on a Hoover Elite 200?

I had the same problem and just figured it out myself. Detach the clamp (attamched to the bag) from the handle. Then slide the bag out from the clamp either left or right. The cloth bag then opnes and you can replace the actual bag inside. Hope this helps.

SOURCE: how do i fit the hoover bag

If you remove the top of the vacuum via the clips on the side you will see the empty bucket. Where the hose connects is where you will fit the bag from the inside. On the bag you will see a hole with cardboard around, this will then push over the outlet.

SOURCE: hoover windtunnel dirt finder light stays red

I'm not sure about a 3 month old vac, I'd probably go the warranty route. However, for the older vacs thy start getting false positives. The sensor is simply a microphone hooked to a computer chip detecting sounds of dirt entering the bag.
To rig it to start working, you'll need to remove the tool accessory tray and elbow that enters the back of the vac, and attached to the bag. This will reveal the microphone at the elbow, and wire that runs into the bottom area of the vac. When on, a large amount of air comes from the bottom screw and area where the wires enter. My fix was to clean up the microphone contact points a little bit with a screwdriver, and then leave the vac running while putting in dampering in the hole at the bottom, and around the back of the elbow. Cotton balls and electrical tape at the bottom hole, and napkins around the outside of the elbow (wedged between the back of the vac assembly and elbow did the trick). The schematic for the vac is here: http<colon>//www<dot>vacsrus<dot>com/CartGenie/pg_U6485900<dot>asp
Look for micrphone.

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 smells of ammonia


Hello,
I too have a problem with a bad smell coming from my henry hound hoover, but thats probely because i haven't used a hoover bag. I took the cloth filter out,banged all the dust off, then sprayed it with 'RugDoctor' pet stain remover for carpets and upholstery. It still smells a bit, but not half as bad as befor. I have now ordered a reusable,zipable,washable cloth hoover bag especially made for Henry's. It cost £8.80 from ebay with free postage. Hope this helps Nikki.

Sweeper smells stinks whole house up when running


Several questions:
What does the smell seem to be? If rubber, check the belt and brushroll for free rotation. If a musty smell, check the bag, it may need replaced with a new paper bag. If it has an electrical smell, like hot insulation, then the motor needs checked.

Hoover Light on


ALTHOUGH MOST FILTERS SAY WASHABLE THEY DO STILL NEED TO BE REPLACE AS WASHING THEM SHRINKS THE FILTER AND EVENTUALLY CLOSES THE AIRWAYS. WHICH ALSO IF NOT REPLACE WILL OVER HEAT MOTOR IN MACHINE AND CAUSE MOTOR FAILURE.
