    The fect is that they miss lead me by telling me that it will do the job as a vacuum cleaner. and the first time I took it back was only ten months old, also they gave me the last one that was as displayed because I was told they didn't have anyone. Mary

    they did not mislead you as it does the job of a vacuum cleaner
    If you had a problem , you would have taken it back with in days and not 10 months
    You say that it is blocking up fast
    Begs the question , how often do you clean out both filters
    one filter should be done daily and the other weekly
    And yes I have the same and it does not block up if properly maintained and it is 2 years old

The fact is that it is an air stick and not a full on vacuum cleaner
it is meant to replace a dust mop or broom and is designed for a quick clean
The company has every right to refuse to exchange it simply because you want a better product and you have used it for 12 months
IT runs for 20 minutes on normal vacuum operation and for 6 minutes on high speed or boost program
If you want another vacuum cleaner , sell the one you have on e- bay or gumtree and then get a different unit

SOURCE: How to remove handle from Hoover 5445-900 upright wind tunnel vacuum

Hoover.com doesn't have a manual specific to your model but there is one similar which will show how to remove the upper handle from the body.

http://www.hoover.com/pdfs/manuals/U5467900.pdf

Do you have a replacement switch? If not I believe you can buy one from Hoover (the switch and/or the upper handle assembly). Unfortunately your model isn't listed on the website, is this a new vacuum? I recommend giving them a call, that would be the easiest way.

Also remember when working with electronics to unplug the vacuum. Even when there is no power residual electricity can remain in the wires. If you feel unsure, take it to a repairman.

Hope this helps!

SOURCE: changing belt on vacuum cleaner

If you can't see the motor shaft then you will have to take the top cover off. Some have a couple of scres to remove from the bottom. Then is a slot on each side, from the bottom put a flat blade screwdrive in the slot and push out and up to release the locking tabs. The knob may pop off so watch for that coming off. Put the belt on the brush roll, then feed the belt up thru the opening and stretch it to go over the motor shaft. Put back together.

posted by Deb in Iowa on May 03, 2008
I need to replace the belt on the power nozzle of my Hoover Dimension 1000 Model S3491. Unfortunately, I have no written instructions on how to do so. I purchased the vacuum cleaner in the mid-80s. Are the instructions still available? Thanks in advance.

Hello,
I would advise you to ALWAYS to FIRST UNPLUG YOUR VACUUM before beginning any service procedure. I believe so, but you would have to contact the Hoover Factory and they would have to send out either the owner’s manual or a copy of the owner’s manual from the fische. I remember this vacuum cleaner well. In order to change the belt you need to remove the 4 screws in the bottom of the power nozzle and then the top cover will lift off from the back to the front and then you can get in to change the belt. Always use the Factory Genuine belts instead of the replacement belts, they last longer and the average belt change for a flat belt is every 4 to 6 months as a rule for the best cleaning. In order to change the belt, lift up the pulley side of the brushroll and slide off the old belt and then slide on the new belt and re-install the brushroll, then use a belt puller or screwdriver with a hook on the end and to pull or stretch the belt onto the motor pulley, once you have it on the vacuum track the belt in a straight line and then reinstall the top cover and screws in reverse. If you have questions please feel free to contact your local vacuum cleaner dealer in your area. 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.

SOURCE: Bosch Vacuum Cleaner: I changed

Greetings from GoVacuum.com,

It sounds like you may have a bad thermal switch inside the machine. Most vacuum cleaners have a switch connected to the motor, so if the vacuum cleaner is running hot, it will shut off to prevent any damage to your motor. You did all the right things by checking the bag, making sure the hose was NOT clogged, and replacing HEPA filter.

Most of the time on canister vacuums, the reason is caused by a clog in the hose, or somewhere in the powerhead. If you're sure that there is no clog anywhere, it is going to be the thermal switch on the motor.

Here's a link to the parts schematic for the Bosch upright vacuum. I hope it helps you in determining how to access the thermal switch. A word of warning to you before you try it, this is a very tough vacuum cleaner to work on, you may want to bring it in to a vacuum repair shop, as this is not an easy repair.

Here's the link;

Please let me know if you have any other questions,

SOURCE: Shark Pursuit Euro-pro X vacuum cleaner, 12 amp, upright model

This vacum cleaner is equipped for auto shut off when it gets hot , It gets hot when it gets clogged either the little sponge filter is to dirty or the the round white filter in the dust collecting container.

But if they are both clean then it is clogged in the line probably with lot of carpet fiber, in that case you ned to take the dust container out and possibly the assembly from bottom like when you change the belt, then take of the Handle where the flex hose is attached, then you gonna need a wire hanger bend a long shape close to the shape of the hose line from handle to where it curved around in the bottom opening where it collects the dust behind the spin brush the just stick the hanger from the handle side cause the clog is probably in the lower side then just push the clogs out . Be care full not to puncture the flex hose with hanger. Its probably a good idea to bent the tip of the hanger so that it wont poke hole in the flex hose.

That's what happened with mine I spend hours and hours and days to figure it out. I could have just through it away, but it just kind a pissed me off and the War was on as stubborn as i am, but finally I won and I got the satisfaction of the sweet victory.

Waste lot of time though but it just one of those things. It never messed with me again.

But that is what's wrong with it. Good luck it a good vacum though very power full.

Are the brushes worn down too far? As they wear the springs tension gets weaker. The brushes can also get stuck inside the channel they slide in. Could also be a buildup of dust etc inside and around the internal fan or commutator, etc.

Brushes not turning


Check the shaft on top of the brush block to make sure it hasn't broken, if brush block is ok, then most likely the turbine is bad and will have to be replaced.

Leaking


My machine leaked badly BUT it was my own fault. There is a one-time only setup procedure where you squeeze the trigger and push the Clean-Surge button to lock a rod into place. Push the Clean-Surge button VERY HARD. There will be a loud SNAP which sounds like you broke something, but you didn't. I didn't push hard enough initially, all I got was a click which I thought was enough. My machine leaked so I called the help line. They told me to push the button harder, and sure enough, they were right. Until you get that snap, the Clean-Surge (which releases a little extra water-cleaner solution) is on all the time, hence the leaking
