Hi, Have you checked the hose for blockages and also the only main problem with these are you know when you take the top off then their is that big round filter that sits on the lip that holds the two parts together, Check this is in the correct way and that the seal is not damged check also the clips holding the top and bottom together are secure.
But blow down hose make sure not blocked then check the filter this might even need banging to remove dust in case its built up to much and not allowing the air to get through it ok
Let me know how you get on ok

Water in henry hoover motor HVR 200A


Chris, I hate to be the bearer of bad news, but you've already guessed it. You need a new machine. Personally, if I were you, I'd check into the small shop vac's, type of vacuum. Craftsman has a good one that I've been using for, wow, more years than I can remember now. I had it a long time I know that. I actually picked up a spare one at a garage sale last summer and put it up on a shelf for one my old one finally bites the bullet, but so far, it's still going strong. The wet/dry vac's have a float system in them that actually plug the bottom of the air chamber where the vac draws it's air from, when the water gets too high in the tank. The motor starts to race faster than normal and that's the tipoff that it's full. Dump out the tank and go at it again. Better luck this time.

I was using my Henry Hoover as usual. When i sucked up quite a fair sized puddle of water. The hoover instantly cut out and a strange burning smell was coming from it. Would this be the fuse, motor etc ?...


Hi. I have to wonder why anyone would **** up a puddle of water with a dry vacuum cleaner (with no earth lead). I realise that your question may simply be a joke, but if you are serious, I think it is probably fair to assume that it is now dead and probably gone to "Henry Heaven". Perhaps it would pay you to buy a "Charles" which is a wet & dry version of Henry.

Hi, last week I bought a new Henry vacuum with autosave, now the autosave feature is not working. The red indicator light does not light up and the motor does not change speed. Any ideas, other than...


Sadly you need to return to dealer, any problem contact Numatic (www.numatic.com), who supply it with a good 2 year warranty, which the dealer should support. This is a fault I see about 1 in 100, so you are a little unlucky. It will need a new switch and can easily be fitted by the dealer. With Henry's usual life expectancy anything from 5 -20 years it is well worth getting sorted.

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.

Rewiring a Henry Hoover


Ignoring for the moment the fascinating question of why you would actually want to do this...  I'm sorry to tell you it won't work. Swapping the wires over will make no difference.
