Hi, It's probably the cord. I do wish Mieles were more durable given what they cost. I clean a home 3x per week with a Miele and tend to go further than i should before i unplug and find a closer outlet to plug into. So, it's the tugging on the cord that killed it. I had to take it to a Miele certified repair shop and they replaced the cord itself, which of course had a new plug on it. It was around 60 bucks. The owner didn't speak great English and I don't know Spanish so i'm unsure where the prob was: the spot where the cord attached to the vac, or the plug. In any case, I don't tug on the vac anymore....owner's were unhappy. Lesson learned.

I have a Electrolux Vacuum that is around 25 years old. It works good, except the hose is stopped up. I would like to know how to go about unstopping the hose.


What may work is to hook another vacuum like a shop vacuum to the hose backward to try to suck whatever is in the hose out.
Another thing to try is completely disconnect the hose and try running water through it backward. (less messy to do this outside.)
Or just get a straight stick long enough and work it to loosen whatever is clogging the hose. Don't force it though.

My brush piece is corroded


El8807 - call customer service at 800-896-9756 push 1 or 2, then push 3. They sent me a new replacement, no cost. Need your Serial Number so they know date of purchase. 5 year warranty. Best vacuum ever, better than dyson and cheaper by 100%, but the brush stopped working after getting tangled. Called support and they replaced. Great. Cheers!!!

Vacuum stopped while sweeping the floor


it is either the switch or the motor buy a brand new switch to put on it and if that does not solve the problem then the motor is just trash but the switches go out on these kinds of vacuum cleaners all of the time so that is probably the problem but if not the vacuum is trash

My rotating brushes have stopped rotating


Almost certainly you have broken a drive belt. It is not a big deal though just turn it upside down and remove the base plate you should be able to access the belt from there. You should be able to get a belt pretty easy from an online retailer like vacuumspot

I bought my Hoover...U5180-910...@ my local Wal-Mart. It is literally falling apart. The sweeper has NOT been abused. Yes, we have 2 cats & a dog but the problems I am having w/ it should not be warranted. The handle has broken. The wheel/roller on the bottom of the machine has broken off & now it has just stopped working. I repeat, this vacuum has NOT been treated badly @ all. I can not be w/out a vacuum. Thank you for your help, hopefully. Debi

Hello,
I would advise you to ALWAYS to FIRST UNPLUG YOUR VACUUM before beginning any service procedure. The best thing to do if the vacuum is less than a year old then take it to an authorized Hoover vacuum cleaner dealer and some parts and maybe not all might be warranted

The handle can be fixed and the wheel roller also can be fixed by any vacuum cleaner dealer. With pets the suggested belt change should be done every 3 to 4 months with 2 cats and a dog and the extra belts should be stored in a Ziploc bag in the refrigerator. If the vacuum just stopped working it could be the motor and if less than one year might be warranted. Feel free to contact your local vacuum cleaner dealer in your area. 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.

They just stopped working!


Hoover has a 1 year warranty on their vacuums, so the newer one will be under warranty. The other won't be. It could be bad switches, even tho they sound ok, they could still be bad, One side of the cord could be open, there is also a thermostat on the motors, it may have opened up, then of course could even be the motor. Just would have to be check over.
