Take off the bottom plate and check the inlet to see if it is clogged and make sure the belt is ok. If no clog there, then it is in the hose. If you can't figure it out and is less then 1 year old, then it is under warranty, take it in for repair along with your proff of purchase.

My Hoover Tempo has almost no suction


Most vacuum cleaners have more than one filter (even bag-less vacuums sometimes). I have found that after being used a while the motor filter blocks up. I just remove it and use another vacuum to clean it out. Depending on the material you may be able to wash it in warm water or if you can get your hands on a new one just replace it. I found a link on youtube that may help you to locate and replace the filters: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wGsuVK8KTT0

Vaccum seems to cut off after short use like its hot,,once it cools off i can use again


Check filter. Clean if needed. The filter should be cleaned when it appears dirty. Simply remove filter, rinse thoroughly under warm running water until clear, then allow to thoroughly air dry. The drying is very important. Additional filter cleaning instructions are on page 13 of the manual.
Check the pleated exhaust (HEPA) filter. If dirty, cleaning is necessary. Instructions for removal and cleaning are on page 14 of the manual.
Check hose, wands, and power nozzle for blockages.
Hose: detach at both ends. The ends of the hose are the most common areas for a blockage. Check visually and clear as much as possible if present. If not visible, hold one end up and drop a coin in. Lift the end until the coin falls through. If it doesn't, there's a clog.
The easiest way to unclog a hose is to use an air pressure hose, or a canister vacuum that has an exhaust blower that the hose can be held too. If enough pressure, it will blow the dirt out. Make sure to put a plastic bag around the loose end to hold the dirt.
Visually check wands and power nozzle. The bend in the power nozzle connection is another common place for clogs. A wooden spoon handle, or similar blunt object, can be used to push the debris back toward the brush to clear a blockage here.

If none of these are the problem, contact a vacuum service center, preferably Hoover, for assistance.

Take to Walmart, plug it in and start to vacuum THEIR floors!
Try removing the dust container and look for anything blocking airflow including the HEPA filter. Make sure the dust cup has a seal where it joins the vacuum. The fix is probably simple, but it shouldn't be up to you to do so!

My hoover wide path fold away automatically shuts off as if there is a clog but i have taken it apart and can not locate a clog at all....what could be the problem?


Hi there SmartAlec from NelsonVacuums.com.au here. The most common reason for this problem with this style of vacuum is that the filter is blocked with extremely fine dust. You can test this by removing the filter and running it *NOT BY VACUUMING* without the filter. Just turn it on and let it run for 5 minutes if it does not turn off then your filter is slowing the airflo down so much that it is just like a blockage and the thermal overload is kicking in and shuttin off your vacuum. I have the filters for this vacuum listed on my website if you need to purchase a new one.
Hope this helps! Happy Vacuuming :)

How to clean hepa filter


Run the HEPA filter under warm running water and allow to dry completely - preferably where it can get air from both sides of filter, do not dry in direct sunlight this can damage the filter, it is best in a warm room, can be dried in a dishdrainer if possible this way it gets air from both sides and will dry fast without promoting mold/mildew Good Luck !

Hoover Tempo Widepath Blows Dirt Out Back on Hard Surfaces


lots of times switching to hard surface floors you need to slow down because the air flow that does the actual picking up of the dirt can't work as fast as the spinning brush so the brush is throwing the dirt out the back before the suction can pick it up. Try slowing down

Filter in Hoover Wind Tunnel Vacuum


Definitely not. Do not use water or any liquids to clean it. Te normal use life is 2-3 years keeping it maintained. You can clean it dry with the dust brush from your vac attachments. place in a plastic bag and tap it some folks even us an air compressor to blow out the impacted dirt. you will only want to use the Hoover brand, other generic brands dont fit as well.
