Posted by badhoover on May 01, 2008
I have an old Hoover turbo power approx 1986 I think its a U1102, the problem is it doesn’t pick up anymore and i wondered if it had some sort of filter on it, I’ve cleaned all the tubes put new bag on but its still got weak suction, could you make any suggestions, thanks…
I would advise you to ALWAYS to FIRST UNPLUG YOUR VACUUM before beginning any service procedure.
The biggest thing on a Hoover Upright is the belt change and the brushes on the brushroll to be of good length, you said you did change the bag and sometimes if it is a hard shell vacuum there is a filter below the bag the needs cleaning or changing, if you have a soft shell or cloth outer bag, you can clean the inside the of the bag or replace the outside bag because even the pores of the bad lose it’s filtration such as your clothes will loosen up after you wash them a few times – the fabric is not as tight as it used to be. The belt change for a flat belt is every 4 to 6 months, and keep the extra belts in a Ziploc bag in the refrigerator. Also check for any bad gaskets that could be leaking, I may suggest a vacuum tune up @ you local vac dealer. 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.
