Question about Hoover U5753-900 WindTunnel Bagless Upright Vacuum
The hose has a very low suction in it, but the floor portion seems to work just fine. I have looked for blockages and have replaced the filters with no luck. Does anyone know what is going on?
I too had the same problem for over a year and changed all filters, checked for clogs, etc, but refused to give up. It just didn't make sense that suction was great on bottom but not on toos... I finally discovered that the "door" on the angle hose was not closing properly when the vacuum was in the upright position (if you look at the vacuum from the back, this hose connects the back to the bottom of the vacuum and it has a "door" at the very bottom end that is supposed to block suction to the lower part of the vacuum while upright) It was unable to close all the way because there was a build up of linty stuff in one corner. The best way to access this is to remove the two screws on the clamp found at the top of the hose, (freeing the hose on top only), straighten hose so you can see inside to the end, and watch inside as you press the upright release lever. (awkward, but worth the effort) You should be able to see the door move -it should be completely open when the vacuum is not locked upright, and should be completely closed when upright. Remove anything that might be preventing it from closing - I used a flathead screwdriver. Dont mean to go on and on, but am so excited to have fixed this problem, and have found so many people with the same situation on the internet while trying to find a solution...Hope this helps someone!!!!

Mac, I was trying to follow your excellent directions cleaning in interior trap door that is opened and closed with activation of the foot switch that lowers the handle when I stumbled on an easier step. The foot-long hose that must be straightened to visualize the trap door, can be removed with a couple of counter intuitive screws to the right, not the left as one would think. Once you get that rascally hose off removing the "linty stuff" is easier. I used a long piece of bailing wire with a loop. Thanks, I would have never found that door.

If you have suction at the hose end, then the problem is down below. Belt may be slipping underload, they stretch and give you problems. The dirt inlet from where the hose plugs into and by the brush roll is clogged. There also is a valve that may have broken, you have to remove the top cover to get to it, #53 on the pix.
