Question about Vacuums

1 Answer

We have a new hoover bagless that is a couple months old. The pet hair attachment stopped working. I disassembled it found lots of hair wound around the various rollers and removed - painstakingly thorough i might add. Problem is the brush still wont spin and now the belt seems loose - I think I put it all back together correctly but wondering if there is a trick to this?

Without the model number, I can't look it up, but this has a 1 years warranty on it, maybe take it to a warranty shop. Just take proof of purchase, model and serial numbers.

Remove hose from 66T6


I know how frustrating this can be. Try turning the hose and wands in opposite directions where they connect. Once the hose and wand is separated you'll be able to connect the pet hair attachment.

Here's a quick link to obtaining a copy of the user guide if you've misplaced yours:

Hi, I have the Hoover d14194 bagless pet vacuum..when I switched it on it worked but kept cutting out, I emptied it and cleaned the filters but now it won't even switch on.is there something I can


You could check the motor brushes, if they are worn and check for loose wire connections.
Another possibility is that there may be a break in the lead, plug it in and shake the lead, if it starts and stops you have probably found your problem with a broken lead.

I have the bagless hoover windtunnel and it doesn't pick up anything and it is very hard to push. Changed the belt and The rollers are spinning and the filter has been changed. What else can I do?


It sounds like there are dirt and hair wound around the wheel axels cousing them not to spin freely. You have to remove all hair and carpet fiber. Then drop a drop of lubricant oil on the axel.
Change the filter.
You should even Check the floor nozzle for clogged dirt.

Hoover U5780-900 Windtunnel a month 1/2 old just started stopping when it is running and wont turn back on for a few hours why?


The motor has a thermal protection sensor on it. So your motor may be going bad, it is pulling to many amps for some reason, could be a clog somewhere or a bad bearing in the motor.

Vacuum blows out dust/pet hair etc. when in use


try replacing the belt if you havent. it almost sounds like your getting weak aggitation. if thats not bad, check for a clog in the brushroll housing nozzle right on the inside by the tube. Replace the inside hepa filter if you havent within the last 3 months.

My handi-mate Jr. is not spinning anymore. What should I do to fix it?


Assuming you don't have a broken belt, you can pretty much completely disassemble the Handimate and clean it out, which should fix "it won't spin any more." Part of the cleaning procedure is pretty obvious - there are tabs on the side that hold the top onto the bottom. Just lift the side flaps on the top section that surround the tabs to release the top section. Pay attention to how the thing is put together so you can reassemble it - there aren't many parts - it's not rocket science. Now the part that's not obvious: it's not too hard to pull the axle out of the cylinder to which the brushes are attached. Gunk, hair and fibers can get caught under the white end caps and around the axle.
