Question about Hoover U8145-900 Savvy Bagless Upright Cyclonic Vacuum

1 Answer

Suction problem I have a Hoover Widepath Fold Away, 12 amp motor vacuum cleaner and the problem I am having is every time I vacuum, the vacuum gets clogged up with carpet. I am probably only able to do one stroke then it gets clogged and I have to stop and unclog it or it spits it out on the carpet. This is very frustrating and I don't get much vacuuming done. Please can you help me. Thank you. Gwen email is jonesgwendolynj@verizon.net

Does it have a reset button?


There is no reset button on this model. If the motor shut off it is due to the motor getting too hot. This can be caused by poor aire flow, usually afull bag or clogged filters. The vac is designed this way for safety.

I have a Hoover fold away and the floor cleaner doesn't work only the attachments are working.


The reason for this would most likely be a blockage in the bottom of the foot of the machine. could also be a bad belt. Check or change the belt and look for obstructions.

After using my attachments I have a hard time getting suction when using upright again - how do I get the suction on my upright? It's a Hoover blue widepath Tempo~ thank you


It may be clogged underneath the vacuum where the roller is. Take the bottom plate off and look into the intake port. There may be some blocking the port.

Hoover vacuum carpet cleaner will not sucktion (sic)


No, this cleaner uses no belts.
If you are having a suction problem, first check that the lid on the recovery tank is lined up to the tank when installed to get a good seal.
Second, remove the tank and make sure the round black rubber seal is present on the pipe from the base that aligns with the bottom of the recovery tank. That seal connects the vacuum from the motor to the recovery tank.

Hoover Empower Widepath Vacuum Doesn't ****


This model requires the lower end of the hose to be installed into the base unit to pick up the dirt. If it is properly installed, I would check the belt and also look for a blockage. The normal life span of a belt is about 9-12 months. your belt # 40201190 2 pk

Posted by Maya B on Jun 04, 2008
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 even though it can be very loud when the attachments are being used. You can email me at fine_wonder@yahoo.com Thanks very much! -Maya


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.
