Question about Hoover S2220 Flair Bagless Upright Vacuum

1 Answer

Attachment of vacuum base to handle

We have had the Hoover Flair bagless vacuum cleaner for about a month. The initial assembly was easy, but the head of the vacuum won't stay on the handle. There doesn't seem to be any locking mechanism, but does friction only keep the head and the handle together? vrabbach@alamedanet.net

Yes friction and the air suction presure keep the head and the handle together.

How do I replace cogged belt on a hoover s2220?


Make sure its unplugged, flip it onto its front on some paper or cloth. Look at the base moulding and note several small screws hidden down in recesses. Get a Torx or Phillips driver as required and remove them to release the base moulding. Find the damaged roller drive belt, replace and reassemble in reverse order. Take care to ensure the roller and base cover are correctly located otherwise the roller will jamb. If it fluffy inside, take this opportunity to clean it out.

My vacuum died. It won't turn on. It is not the outlet. Is it a blown fuse? How do I replace the fuse? Where does it go? This vacuum is a little over 2 years old. My older Hoover WindTunnel STILL works and...


It's probably the power switch. My switch was dicey for a couple years, finally gave out. Easy to replace.

Remove the two screws just above the WARNING on the rear of the upper handle assembly, then slide the whole assembly to the rear of the vacuum.

Remove the dust bag cover. You will see two holes just above the upper corners of the dust bag. Remove the screws from these recessed screw holes.

Open the furniture cleaner cover and remove the cleaner attachment. Remove the single screw that was hidden behind the attachment. Then remove the attachment housing by pulling it towards the front of the vacuum.

Inside you will see the rear of the power switch. Pull off the power wires (don't worry, easy on/off male/female connectors, no soldering).

The switch is held in by tension bars at the upper and lower rear of the switch. Firmly press down on one of both of the upper/lower tension bars, and push the switch through the housing from the rear of the switch.

Replacement part number is 28161067, about $2.50. Shop will charge about $85 to repair it themselves.

Little suction and pours water underneath machine on the floor. This all happens while i am using the hand attachment tool, but also occurs when i tried just the machine is running..what am i doing wrong....


Press the handle release kick-button with your foot, extend the handle all of the way back, and take a look at the gap between the base of the unit and the handle/reseviour assembly. You should see several black hoses attached to the base and running up into the handle assembly. One of them (either the clean/solution hose or the dirty water return hose) might be cracked. Turns out that might be a common problem with this model. We had a similar problem with the dirty water return hose.

We opted to not repair our unit (terrible engineering!), but you might be able to do it yourself for the cost of the part and several hours of your time. Otherwise, seek out your certified Hoover repair center for more info.

Carpet setting not working


there is a belt in the nozzle that is driven by a small motor in turn will drive the roller when set to carpet. did you completely dis-assemble the nozzle? ie, to remove the roller and clean the endcaps? this would also show the belt. The gear on the motor wears very easily and could also be worn. I would change the nozzle or get a new Flair. new nozzles cost about $25-$30.

Hoover Flair S2200


Should be the same, Hoover would only have one S2200 model and it doesn't matter who is selling it.
