Hmm, you really should not ever rinse out your vacuum unless you have a model that specifically states it is called for. If you must, then use only a slightly damp sponge or cloth. There are so many ways water can have ruined your motor. Let the whole thing sit for several days (drying parts inside) and then plug it in and try to start it. It may not. For fun you can try a different outlet on the off chance it is not related to water damage. Good luck:) Farmerbear at FixYa.com

Why is my hoover windtunnel vacuum cleaner shutting off?


Hi there! Sounds like the thermal protector is being activated. This is usually caused by a clog or a filter that needs to be cleaned or replaced. Follow the steps below to prevent the unit from shutting off.

1. Remove the hose completely.
2. Use a broom stick to gently loosen and clear hose of clogs.
3. Remove the bottom plate and brush-roll.
4. Use a wooden spoon or something similar to break up and remove any clogs from lower hose.
5. Check the primary filter behind the side grille. If it is dirty you may rinse it under running water and allow 24 hours to air dry outside the vacuum.
6. Remove the bag door. Clean the primary filter located on the vacuum under the bag. Rinse with water and allow 24 hours to air dry outside the vacuum. The primary and secondary filters should be replaced at least once a year.
7. Check that the bag is not full. If it is, replace the bag.

The vacuum will turn back on when it cools off. This can take up to an hour. Hope this was helpful!

Changing bag


The cloth bag can be soaked in warm water with a mild soap solution. Rinse well and let it hang to air dry. We usually let it hang all day in the sun when we can.

You can wash the outer cloth bag by soaking it overnight in water with a mild soap solution and then rinse well and hang it up to air dry. Make sure that it is dry before you run it again.

My Riccar Upright leave lines of debris when I use it. Can you help?


Inspect the filter.Open the secondary filter on the base of the vacuum to ensure that dirt and debris have not collected on the filter, as this will limit motor performance. Remove the filter from the dust compartment and rinse with water to clean. Allow it to dry completely and return to the dust compartment.--------
Also check if dust bag is got over full and that is causing the problem.Open the dust compartment, take the old dust bag out of the bag holder and discard. Open the end of a new dust bag and attach to the dust bag holder. Close the dust compartment and tighten the dust cover.Also check properly that dust compartment is not got loose. Open cleaning attachment and check the hoses and nozzles on the frequently to ensure that they are free of dirt, obstruction or hair.Also inspect the brushes, if there is already dirt got stuck in the brushes and that is causing the problem.Clean the brushed.---------- This will help, to confirm where the problem is and to resolve the dirt /debris issue.----- Thanks.Helpmech.

Brush is not rotating.


Turn the vac over, remove the access plate, covering the brush roll, 2 to 4 screws. Brush roll part number is 2032032if you need it, belt is a Bissell Style 7. While you have the brush roll off, check in dirt inlet to see if it is clogged, also check the hose to see if it is clogged. You won't feel suction at the bag tube, it has to have a bag on it and the lid closed before it will create suction.
