Question about Hoover U5753-900 WindTunnel Bagless Upright Vacuum

1 Answer

My Hoover Whisper Cyclonic is collecting the dirt but not taking it into the cylinder. The brushes were at one point starting and stoping due to the belt periodically turning,now the brushes are turning and the dirt just collects and I'm starting to smell a an oder like rubber burning.I've taken it apart and tried to make sure the is no clog. The one hose that I can't check is in the back right base, above and left of the right back wheel.

You need to change the belt once every year. It's a good idea to take it to your local vac shop and have it serviced once a year also. They can fix this for you. Your belt is worn out.

Mine does the same thing. There is no suction. I found that there is a door that opens when you tilt the handle in the down possition. I think there should be a spring in place so it can open. Until I find a replacement spring I have to open the door manually throught the opening under the light.

I dont think its a problem with the filters if you have normal suction.
If the DC11 cylinder/ canister vac has an air turbine brush / turbo brush check that the drive belt inside it isn't clogged with dirt. If its a toothed belt ensure that it is properly snapped on as well as the other parts in that floor head tool. There may also be dirt clogged in the turbine wheel which is stopping the brush from moving quickly.

1 ) That unit cannot shut off the airflow to hose while unit is used in upright position. The hose is in constant use, whether you are using attachments, or vacuuming the floor.
2) It does sound like you have a clog somewhere in the unit. Most often it is the grey filter screen is full, (which is located just above the dust cup...instructions found on sticker on back side of dust cup) which causes everything to clog or back up. You should check this piece every time the dust cup is emptied.
3) To check for clog in main hose, remove the square clear hose adapter (with a phillips screwdriver) from the back of the unit and pull out the grey plastic attachment end of hose from the side of the unit by the duster, and unwrap the longest part of hose from vacuum and lay it on the floor. Get a quarter or a nickel and while holding the clear square adapter end of hose up , drop the coin into the hose, shake the hose to see if the coin will roll all the way out the other end of hose onto the floor. If it comes out, re-attach the hose adapter , making sure the little foot is in place, and with the dust cup locked in place, turn the unit on, test suction at end of the hose, it should be strong. But, if itdoesn't come out, there is a clog. The grey plastic hose retainer at the bottom of the unit is open where you can stretch it over the hose and free the hose from the unit.Take something like a mop handle or broom handle,(I've also found a long dryer lint brush to be helpful) insert into the hose to break the clog loose. Repeat the coin test. When the coin comes through, reattach the hose.Test for suction.
4) To test the lower portion of hose for a clog (from the duster unit to the brushroll area in base) with the attachment end of the main hose out of the hole, you should be able to look down the opening and see into the lower portion where the hose curves into the base. Drop your coin in the opening (not in the duster tube) it should, with gravity, roll out to the floor. However, it may stop at the brushroll, so tilt your unit forward, and side to side to see if it comes out. If that doesn't make it come out, there is a clog in that lower hose.
5) To clear the clog, recline the handle all the way down on its back( again like vacuuming under a bed) roll the unit on its "belly", you should see the lower hose straighten out more, Insert something blunt into it, broom handle, or a bent wire coat hanger (bend to protect hose from puncture) and you should be able to clear the clog. If it still wont clear the clog, remove the 4 screws from bottom of unit and take hood of unit off to see the opening of bottom end of lower hose, near the brushroll. Clean out clog from that end. Once cleared, stand unit upright, re-test with the coin until coin rolls out freely. Put all parts of unit back together.
6) Make sure the height adjustment pieces are still attached to bottom of unit. (the plastic piece with 2 wheels and a spring) Reset this component, by reclining the handle in normal operating position, lean down turn height knob on hood to the highest carpet setting, and flip it slowly over to the bare floor setting, do this back & forth 4 times... over & back is 1, etc...then determine your carpet height...( berber is like normal carpet ) set the knob (with handle still reclined) on the middle setting, then place unit back in upright position. Test the vacuum for approx. 1 minute. While testing the unit, look into the dust cup and see if the dirt is swirling. If it isn't, then check the dust cup filter,(under the dust cup) to make sure it is clean. If it is coated with dirt, etc...,remove the filter tray , pinch the foam filter and pull out of tray.Tap the filter over a trash can, or replace it if you have a replacement foam filter handy. Replace foam filter in the tray, replace filter & foam into unit, close the lid, replace the dust cup and lock in place. Re-test vacuum.
7) If all the above steps are followed, this should prevent future clogs in unit.

How am I suppose to emty The uh70060I feel that I am not getting all the dirt out. Can the red top be removed?

Hi! It is not recommended you disassemble the red cyclonic filter. You may use your upholstery brush or something similar to brush off the cyclonic filter. You may also wipe it down with a damp cloth. Do not rinse or submerge the cyclonic filter in water. Hope this helps!

Brush doesn't spin and there is no suction there either, the brushes move freely when manipulated manually

Check for clog in the hose or what ever connects the nozzel to the collection device. I pick up vaccum cleaners all summer, most new, all clogged, all from the trash.

If possible, take the machine outside, open the collection device, run the motor. Is there suction you can detect anywhere?

Since the Steam Vac does not have any belts... the logical issue is Switch setting (Hi, Low, Off) on the base cover. The only other is dirt collection on the air intake for the brushes (unit uses air passing over plastic fan blades to spin the brushes). To clear the dirt problem, remove the clear plastic cover located just in front of the brush Switch. You can now use your finger nail (or an old tooth brush) to clean the filter screen located just below the Switch. Don't tear it, just gently remove the accumulated dust/hair.
Brushes should spin once you reassemble and power it up!!

I have taken the brush heads off and pulled all the hair out of the small gap between the chrome shaft and the plastic gear housing. Then a small amount of 3-in-1 oil into that gap to lube the internals and just a little through the air intake on the side of the head to clean and lube the seals and it works like new. This lasts about 9 months under high use and the process takes roughly 10 minutes.
