Hoover Vacuum Elite (Allergen Filtration) 12 Amp Motor

I received this vacuum (Hoover Vacuum Elite/Allergen Filtration 12 Amp Motor) from a friend. After using it in a few rooms it started giving off this burnt odor and the motor starts to sound as if it's dying. What is wrong with it and how can I fix it? If I need to change a part, which one is it and where do I get it from?

I love the suction in this vacuum eventhough it can be very loud when the attachments are being used.

You can email me at fine_wonder@yahoo.com

Thanks very much!

Hello,
I would advise you to ALWAYS to FIRST UNPLUG YOUR VACUUM before beginning any service procedure. Hoover Vacuum Elite/Allergen Filtration 12 Amp Motor. It certainly sounds like a motor that is on its way to going out or burning out – you can replace the motor and you can get the part from your local vacuum cleaner dealer in your area, either new or used to save money, or you can contact the cust serv dept @ Hoover. 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.

I took the filter out of my Windtnnel Pro Pet to clean it (not with water) I put it back in and now the vacuum wont turn on.


I'm going to guess that when you put it back together it didn't quite go back in correctly. There could be a switch that prevents it from turning on if the filter is not installed. Make sure that it is seated correctly. I hope thats all it is.

take it to a friends house and plug it in if it does the same thing then the problem is in the vacuum cleaner.check your cord and see if there are anny cuts in it.you can open the breaker box then plug in the vacuum and watch the breaker box.you might see a spark and narrow down the problem.

Hoover Elite Rewind Vacuum, smells like a burning motor and is not sucking anymore! Help!!

Hello,
I would advise you to ALWAYS to FIRST UNPLUG YOUR VACUUM before beginning any service procedure. If the motor has a burning smell, it could be the belt but in most cases it would be the motor and that would be in need of replacement. You can try to replace it yourself but there would not a warranty for self installation. If you have an authorized vacuum cleaner dealer do the install then it would be warranted for one year. You can check with the Hoover manufacturer if you like. If you have further questions please feel free to contact your local vacuum cleaner dealer in your area, or contact the Hoover website and or the cust serv phone # @ Hoover listed below. 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.
