Remove the bag fill tube. If you look at the plastic holder it fits into, you will see two oval shaped recesses. Take a flat blade screwdriver and insert into the holes. Pry the driver by pulling gently towards the centre of the machine. This will release the clips that hold the plate on the unit. Once removed, also remove the two philips screws on the plastic plate on the bottom of the bag. This will allow you to remove the bag. If you want to wash it, be careful and do it by hand. These bags are no longer available.

How do I replace the fan on my Hoover upright bag Vacuum?


This requires removal of the motor. (Many fans are held on with left hand thread connections.) Hoover makes many models and styles, there is no single diassembly method without knowing a model number.

I have a Vax turbo force 2000w hoover and it doesnt pick up theres hardly any suction and then it cuts out. Any ideas what the problem could be?


Yep,

Your filters are clogged. As a result the motor is straining and overheating, then a thermal cutout operates.

Clean the filters in the top of the vax and if you are ussing a cloth bag empty and wash ot. If a paper bag, replace it.

All should be well

I just bought a Hoover Power Drive Concept Two Electronic vacuum from the thrift shop. It only needed two belts and seems powerful. But i don't understand what the small red button on the handle marked...


The U6311-903 is a self propelled vacuum. The the small red button will stop the handle from moving back and forth, which makes the machine go foward and backwards. The red button disengages the self propelled feature.

My hoover smells of ammonia


Hello,
I too have a problem with a bad smell coming from my henry hound hoover, but thats probely because i haven't used a hoover bag. I took the cloth filter out,banged all the dust off, then sprayed it with 'RugDoctor' pet stain remover for carpets and upholstery. It still smells a bit, but not half as bad as befor. I have now ordered a reusable,zipable,washable cloth hoover bag especially made for Henry's. It cost £8.80 from ebay with free postage. Hope this helps Nikki.

George,
Removal is slow and requires removal of the bottom plate, agitator cavity, the hose connection, and the hood. I can sne a few pictures if you get stumped.

Need to change a belt on my Hoover Concept One Power drive

Hello,
I would advise you to ALWAYS to FIRST UNPLUG YOUR VACUUM before beginning any service procedure. On the Hoover Concept One Power Drive Upright vacuum there are 2 belts, a drive belt and a power drive belt, always use the Hoover genuine belts and for the best cleaning always change you vacuum belts every 4 to 6 months for the best cleaning. !st, remove the bottom plate and cut off the old belts – then you need to lift up the one side of the brushroll that has the pulley side for the longer of the 2 belts and slide it on. Replace the brushroll, B4 you go to far remember which went on 1st, the power drive belt (smaller belt) or the brushroll belt, in either case hook the belt(s) onto the pulley 1st and then use a belt puller or a screwdriver with a hook or bend on the end and stretch the belt(s) onto the motor pulley and then track the belts in a straight line – do this on both belts. Once you have done this then replace the bottom plate. Check your owner’s manual in the trouble shooting guide to see if they also have suggestions or check with your local vacuum cleaner dealer in your area or contact the Hoover website or the Hoover factory cust serv phone # listed below. 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.

Hello,
I would advise you to ALWAYS to FIRST UNPLUG YOUR VACUUM before beginning any service procedure.
The biggest thing on a Hoover Upright is the belt change and the brushes on the brushroll to be of good length, you said you did change the bag and sometimes if it is a hard shell vacuum there is a filter below the bag the needs cleaning or changing, if you have a soft shell or cloth outer bag, you can clean the inside the of the bag or replace the outside bag because even the pores of the bad lose it’s filtration such as your clothes will loosen up after you wash them a few times – the fabric is not as tight as it used to be. The belt change for a flat belt is every 4 to 6 months, and keep the extra belts in a Ziploc bag in the refrigerator. Also check for any bad gaskets that could be leaking, I may suggest a vacuum tune up @ you 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.

My Hoover is picking dust , very poorly


The Telios has a bad design on the handle and it sounds like something has definately got stuck. Unfortunately the nature of the cheap European design means the handle can only be removed by someone who owns a vice in their garage without breaking the removal points. Alternatively find a long bamboo stick or pole to put inside the hose mount which connects normally from the main bin of the Telios (not the other way around up the handle) which has no sharp edges and push up and down vigourously to dislodge any clogged dirt which may have inadverntely got stuck either by the handle or in the hose itself.

Another thing to do is to check the suction from the Telios itself by removing the hose. If there is suction coming from the main dirt bag/bin door with the hose removed then there is no problem other than a clogged hose and handle. Hoover updated the handle and hose in 1999 and spares can be found by looking on Ebay.co.uk for cheaper prices.
