How often should I change a Hoover Empower filter?

Hello,
I would advise you to ALWAYS to FIRST UNPLUG YOUR VACUUM before beginning any service procedure.
Depending on what type of filter it is, the suggested change for a filter is every 6 months to one year if it is a cartridge filter or HEPA filter, if it is a filter that can be vacuumed off or it might be a washable filter – you can clean it that way until the filter starts to fall apart – then @ that time you would want to replace it @ that time. Please check with you local vac dealer. Filters
It's important to replace your vacuum filter or HEPA filter regularly to keep your Hoover vacuum working best. Not only will this increase the life of your vacuum, it will also keep unwanted dust, dirt and allergens out of the air. Keep your home Hoover clean with genuine Hoover filters.
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.

This machine has quite a few airducts to it. You must have a clog up in there some where. Also, make sure that all the filters to this machine are clean. That will help with keeping the vacuum from getting clogged again.

Hoover empower belt need replace


To gain access to the belt: remove 2 screws at the top rear cover, next remove 2 screws at the bottom front cover. This will allow the cover to be removed. Then remove 3 or 4 screws that hold the roller in place (from the top). you will be able to see the belt and replace it.

Hoover empower lost suction


The first thing you need to do is remove the debris bin in the front. Turn on the vacuum and feel if there is any suction at the bottom of that compartment. If not then your problem is not a simple blockage and you can stop reading this right now, if you do feel good suction, you're in luck.

The problem is almost assuredly a blockage of some sort. The Hoover Empower's greatest feature is its simplicity of design which is basically a 12 amp motor creating a powerful suction over a very short path as vacuum cleaners go.

While you still have the debris container out of the machine, disconnect the accessory hose from its mount on the right (or "passenger") side of the machine and blow through it. You should plainly feel your own breath coming out of the rectangular slot in the area behind where the debris container mounts.

If you don't feel it, or if it is not strong, well there's your problem. You will need a Torx driver set to remove the 13 screws that hold the back of the vacuum cleaner on and the accessories hose in. Unless you are a total tool geek, you probably won't have anything like this around but you can pick up a set of Torx head screw drivers at any decent hardware store. The look like an Allen wrench set but the ends are different. Look at the screw heads and you'll see what I'm talking about.

Once you remove the screws, the rest of the job is a piece of cake. Brush out or wipe down the air channel and clear the accessory hose, put the rascal back together and buy yourself something nice with the 70 or 80 dollars you would have been charged to do the same work by someone else.

Cleaning my bagless vacuum


Hi Anne,
It does not say to get the filter wet but;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;; I have had mine for 2 years. When I do a thourgh cleaning of the filter. I actually fill the inside of the filter up with water then hose the outside and let air dry. Another great thing to do is always have 2 filters. Let the one dry out and pop in a new one.

Good luck...
I have only had 2 filters.. and they clean out great with water..

No. if the wrong belt you will have problems. This is a common belt for Hoover, it used to be 36528027, but the number changed to the 36528040, also 40201190 is the newest number for this belt. Most repair vacuum repair shops should have this belt. You order it online at http://vacuumsuperstore.com/hoover_belts.html
