Question about Hoover Elite Rewind Bagless Upright VacuumVacuum
Every time I attempt to use the hose, I don't really get any...suckage. the regular floor rollers keep going and almost no power is directed to the hose. Do I need to have it on a certain setting? am I forgetting a step (I have just been pulling the hose out by the handle, leaving one end hooked into the bagless container.) And no, I cannot find my manual.
I had a similar problem with my Hoover Elite and just resolved it today. Mine was also picking up with the beater bar, but not as good as it should and it had very little suction at the hose, so little that the powered hand tool brush would not spin at all.
I did everything it said to do in my owners manual...
I looked into every entry to the dirt cup.
I checked for blockages into the bottom of the vacuum.
I cleaned the HEPA and regular filters and dirt cup - still no success.
I made sure the belt was working properly.
I finally sat and looked at how things should get into the clear dirt cup (bagless model).
I finally realized it had to be a blockage in the hose.
I completely detached the hose from the vacuum - this took some muscle, but there is the word "LOCK" where the hose attaches near the dirt cup. Turn it counter clockwise or to the left and with some umph it will unlock and detach from the vacuum.
Then I took the hose outside and used my high pressure nozzle on my garden hose to spray out the hose. It took a few seconds before a pretty large & stiff piece of paper (2"x2") and much more very dirty stuff finally blew out...
No wonder the vacuum had no suction!!!
The paper that was blocking the hose reminds me of a piece found under a Reese's Peanut Butter Cup! YIKES, it was probably candy causing yet more problems besides the extra pounds!!!
Hope this helps - I'm not an expert, just a frustrated cleaning fanatic who hates it when mechanical things don't work right!
Good LUCK from Henderson, NV!!!
