Generic problem for all Vacuums
I have a Hoover Fold Away, U5175-900
I have a Hoover Fold Away, U5175-900. Have had it for 4 months and from the get go; it has been extremely noisy especially with the attachments. Have a warranty but thought it might be a minor item I could fix.

I would advise you to ALWAYS to FIRST UNPLUG YOUR VACUUM before beginning any service procedure.
I would advise that you take it to a authorized vacuum dealer as to he would be able to diagnose the problem better than I, you typically have a one year factory warranty with the Hoover Co and if there is a brushroll / belt problem or motor than it would be covered under the factory warranty other than the belt is NOT covered, it could be something that has not been tightened down or missing some type of gasket or a bad bearing or bushing. If you have problems contact the Hoover Co for a dealer nearest you, or look in the yellow pages for a vacuum dealer nearest you.

Hi, how do I check my hoover floormate deluxe spinscrub's filter and motor?


Hi Mike! To check the filter on the Floormate deluxe, remove the dirty water tank and pull up on tank lid to separate from the base. Check foam filter for debris, if filter has debris, rinse it with water. To prevent internal damage make sure you are using only the Hoover Floormate detergent. If the machine is still noisy and smells bad we recommend taking it in to a Hoover authorized service center. Follow the link to find the nearest service center to you. Hope this helps!

Noisy hoover


1 Check the impeller to make sure it is not missing part of a blade or has something jammed in it that could throw it off balance.
2 Check the bearings on the rotating brush, especially at the belt end.
3 Remove belt and turn on. If noise still persists, it likely would be the motor is shot.

I have a Hoover fold away and the floor cleaner doesn't work only the attachments are working.


The reason for this would most likely be a blockage in the bottom of the foot of the machine. could also be a bad belt. Check or change the belt and look for obstructions.

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 :)

Hoover Empower Widepath Vacuum Doesn't ****


This model requires the lower end of the hose to be installed into the base unit to pick up the dirt. If it is properly installed, I would check the belt and also look for a blockage. The normal life span of a belt is about 9-12 months. your belt # 40201190 2 pk

Hoover very noisy after new belt installed.


what is the belt # you have installed (generic)? Yes, there are problems with using generic belts on Hoover Vacuums. If you have noise I would suspect the roller, and replace it. the cost is about $25 and is something that you can install. The newer type are mande of wood and are very quiet.
