Hello,
I would advise you to ALWAYS to FIRST UNPLUG YOUR VACUUM before beginning any service procedure. It sounds to me that the suction fan is rubbing against the motor and needs an adjustment but don’t try to take it apart yourself, if it is less than one year you have a factory warranty on the unit and should actually take it to the local factory authorized Hoover vacuum dealer in your area and have him do the warranty work, if you try to do the work it voids the factory warranty. It is a minor problem and can be adjusted so contact your local vac dealer in your area. 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.

Royal carpet extractor not picking up water well


Try to follow the suction from the machine through the dirty water tank to the front floor suction piece. Make sure the dirty water tank is seated properly. Make sure there are no suction leaks any where.

How do I make the noise stop?


Seems like the bearing on the side of the roller has gone bad. If there is a dirt gone deep inside, it is hard to clean it. It can also go bad if the roller hits the uneven surface like the transition strip between carpet and tile. It can unbalance the roller causing it to go off its axis and get misaligned.
This is the roller for the Hoover Elite Rewind

Flair Cleaner makes squeaking noises


There are two items that could squeak:
If it squeaks when pushing/pulling it on carpet, WHILE NOT RUNNING, then the wheels are squeaking when they rotate on the wheel shaft. If so, one drop of oil at the shaft would fix it.

If it squeaks WHILE RUNNING, mostly while pulling backwards on carpet, then the belt is slipping. You may wish to set the nozzle height setting for a higher pile carpet, or could replace the rubber belt.

Hoover makes terrible screaching sound when using upright.


It's most likely the bushings/bearings in the beater bar (roller). The beater bar cover is fairly easy to remove -- take it off and investigate. Could be that the roller only needs lubricating on the ends. Also, check the belt to see if it's intact or damaged.

Clean area thoroughly.

If this is not the problem, please, let me know.

Which is the best caprpet steam cleaner mid priced?


I would recommend the Hoover brand. The Bissell's are very problematic, they have belts that break and issues with the heating elements. Hoover Steam Cleaners can be repaired and are simple to use. The price range is generally $180 - $300
