you have a bad connection somewhere in the unit
this is a fire hazard and you should not use this until its been fixed
could be a pinched wire or broken connections

I have the Hoover U6485900 and the brush rollers keep spinning even when the vacuum is in the upright position. I have replaced both belts hoping that would fix it. Help!


depending on your exact model this is supposed to happen even when it is up right since the vac motor does two things besides just sucking up dirt but in order to prove that i would need some photos (photobucket links or any other imaging online service is welcome to be used to see the exact model vac it is) now if it has like a two stage mode switch in this model it could be that the two stage switch is a lil bad but i have seen where people have done mini mods to save cash and sort of make their own sorta two stage switch with two switches and a bypass to just run the main motor for sucking up dirt

Hight adjuestment won't work


Lock the vac in the upright position and then tilt the unit back off the front wheels, it should move easier. If the height adjust does not work, there may be a broken part, I would recommend service by a vac shop.

I hope adjusting position of the position of the "pivot spring assembly" will help. but you may have to disassemble entire slide assembly to clean it up if it still does not work smoothly. See instructions HERE (adjustment is explained in step #6). Try to "play" with screws #4 and if it does not help - clean slid.

Good Luck

Automatic "shut off" not turning off


Check the filter in the tank, if a dual V model you will have a screen, if not a dual V move the foam filter down about 1/4" to help.The lid on either model needs to be securely in place, as well as locking the left and right latches. On the Dual V model, check the hose door on the front.

Hoover steam vac dual v makes humming noise and nothing else.


Is the overfill valve (the yellow thing) in the waste container stuck in the up/full position? Maybe it just needs to be rinses well to avoid it being stuck and shutting off the vacuum portion of the cleaner.

Flair motor shorting out?


There's a thermal cut-off when the unit has overheated. Mine does this quite often and I remedy it by emptying the canister and making sure the filter is clean, especially of lint and things that prevent good air flow.

Hoover only two years old and it stopped working!
Posted by baby_nurse on May 02, 2008
My Hoover self propelled wind tunnel was working great until a couple of days ago when it started shutting on and off while vacuuming. I thought it was the outlet but when I plugged it into two different outlets it did the same thing. Then finally yesterday it just stopped working it won't even turn on when plugged in. I thought it was the switch but it is not. Is it the motor? Has the motor burned out? Do I need to buy a new one? Help!!

Hello,
I would advise you to ALWAYS to FIRST UNPLUG YOUR VACUUM before beginning any service procedure.

I think you are right, if it is not the switch then it would be the motor. Does it smell bad like a burning smell? If so it is definitely the motor and then @ that point you may want to get an estimate for motor replacement, and keep in mind of what you spent on the vacuum versus what the cost of repair might be. My own rule of thumb is if it cost more than ½ of the price I paid for it then you have to decide – do I want to pay the repaired cost for the vacuum or do I want to purchase a new one. Just a suggestion... You may want to check with your local vac dealer. 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.
