SOURCE: hoover empower lost suction

The first thing you need to do is remove the debris bin in the front. Turn on the vacuum and feel if there is any suction at the bottom of that compartment. If not then your problem is not a simple blockage and you can stop reading this right now, if you do feel good suction, you're in luck.

The problem is almost assuredly a blockage of some sort. The Hoover Empower's greatest feature is its simplicity of design which is basically a 12 amp motor creating a powerful suction over a very short path as vacuum cleaners go.

While you still have the debris container out of the machine, disconnect the accessory hose from its mount on the right (or "passenger") side of the machine and blow through it. You should plainly feel your own breath coming out of the rectangular slot in the area behind where the debris container mounts.

If you don't feel it, or if it is not strong, well there's your problem. You will need a Torx driver set to remove the 13 screws that hold the back of the vacuum cleaner on and the accessories hose in. Unless you are a total tool geek, you probably won't have anything like this around but you can pick up a set of Torx head screw drivers at any decent hardware store. The look like an Allen wrench set but the ends are different. Look at the screw heads and you'll see what I'm talking about.

Once you remove the screws, the rest of the job is a piece of cake. Brush out or wipe down the air channel and clear the accessory hose, put the rascal back together and buy yourself something nice with the 70 or 80 dollars you would have been charged to do the same work by someone else.

Where is the thermal protector sensor on hoover vac.


On most vacuum cleaner models it is built into the motor and cannot be changed without replacing the motor. In my experience the reset switch goes bad more often than the motor does which is why I recommend vacuum cleaners that have an external reset switch.

Hoover U5780-900 Windtunnel a month 1/2 old just started stopping when it is running and wont turn back on for a few hours why?


The motor has a thermal protection sensor on it. So your motor may be going bad, it is pulling to many amps for some reason, could be a clog somewhere or a bad bearing in the motor.

Hoover upright has stopped working and tripped the circuit breaker. Where is the fuse located on the hoover ?


Most Hoover uprights do not have fuse. Some canisters doe but it is a thermal shutoff. When the vac overheats and cools down it restarts on its own.
You very likly have motor damage, but if lucky you could have an obstruction in the fan causing a jam. Do not attempt to run again.Lift the lid off the vac and see if the drive shaft for the belt will turn. If not motor will need to be removed and fan housing and intake area inspected. If the motor shaft turns and you hear scratching or clicking, the carbon brushes are likely damaged often requiring a replacement motor. If the fan is jammed you will need to dismantle the fan housing. Remove the two motor clamps and there will be four screws on the side of the housing to release the fan cover. The fan should rotate freely in your hand.

How often should I change a Hoover Empower filter?

Hello,
I would advise you to ALWAYS to FIRST UNPLUG YOUR VACUUM before beginning any service procedure.
Depending on what type of filter it is, the suggested change for a filter is every 6 months to one year if it is a cartridge filter or HEPA filter, if it is a filter that can be vacuumed off or it might be a washable filter – you can clean it that way until the filter starts to fall apart – then @ that time you would want to replace it @ that time. Please check with you local vac dealer. Filters
It's important to replace your vacuum filter or HEPA filter regularly to keep your Hoover vacuum working best. Not only will this increase the life of your vacuum, it will also keep unwanted dust, dirt and allergens out of the air. Keep your home Hoover clean with genuine Hoover filters.
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.

Thermal Protector activated and won't turn off on Hoover Em upright bagless


been there... done that. Vaccuming fine powder can interfere with contact of the brushes against the armature of the motor. You can turn it on and off all you want, but if the brushes have a coating of fine powder on them the motor won't run. If there's any way to "blow it out" with something like compressed air, then spin the motor by hand (with the unit UNPLUGGED) a few times, try that. If the motor starts after plugging in and turning it on, it was most likely dirty brushes.

Don't ignore your instincts. If you think it smells like a scorching belt, you're probably right. Check that the pulley the belt is meant to spin is free to turn. If it isn't, find out why and then sort that out. A.
