Question about Vacuums
The height adjustment wheels (not the casters) flip back and forth when using the vacuum, making this thing impossible to use. I see nothing that is designed to hold the wheels in the forward position toward the beater brush. Did some retainer break off that is not evident to me? Or is it time for a new vac?

take off the bottom like you are replacing the belt. You will find a little metal clip that controls the upright lock. It may be lose or broken.

Check the brush roll, are the bristles worn down? Check the belt also, if it is stretched, then it won't drive the brush roll like it should.

Check that the filters are completely clear and not blocked - especially the top filter on top of the bin assembly. If its clogged completely brush it free of dirt and then reassemble. Make sure the inner cone filter and mesh filter is also completely clean. Then check the hose and main dust channel - something is clogged that makes this machine overheat and stop working - and often with this model (Hoover also make it in the UK under the Alyx name) its down to clogged filters or small clogs of dust in the dust channels.
Don't forget to rate, thanks.
