    SOURCE: model DC40, the wand doesn't have any suction when I want to use on stairs, etc.

    Hi there, it's Jack at Dyson.
    If your DC40 doesn't seem to have suction through the wand but picks up as normal on flooring, it's likely there's a blockage in the wand or hose. To locate and remove any obstructions, please follow the steps shown in our online Support guide:

    It's also worth giving both filters a wash as shown in the video below - in normal use this should be done at least once a month. Use cold water without detergent and at least 24 hours for the filters to dry completely before replacing them.

    I hope this helps, but if you'd like any further assistance please call our freephone Helpline on 0800 298 0298 (UK), or 1-866-693-9766 (US).

    Tip

    Do you hate vacuuming stairs?


    • If you have stairs that at have carpet you should vacuum them.It is difficult with most any vacuum. I recommend that for people that are using a canister vacuum ; this is the one you pull around with you on a hose.I recommend taking the handle out of the wands and plugging it directly into the power nozzle. The power nozzle is the piece that has the roller bar in it or some people call it a beater bar! If you remove the wands from the equation you will find that you have much better control of the pwr.head. This will allow you do do a better job and not have to stand back five feet from the head and on stairs you will find this to be much more convenient. If it is to short then you may try using just one of the wands if they come apart. Some now have telescopic wands that you can pull out just like a telescope does again you have moved three feet closer to the task at hand and thus making it easier to control the head.
    • For people that have an upright machine; I recommend getting what is called a sidekick or a rug rat. These are little mini power heads that are run on the airflow of your vacuum.They attach on to the hose and you can get right non the stairs with it and it is very light and versatile. You can even vacuum your mattress with it or your car. The rug rat is sold by most vacuum stores and are compatible with almost all machines.
    • I hope this makes life a little easier .
    • Good luck and thanks for reading my tip!

    My Hoover stopped sucking! If I use the attachment for stairs that works just fine, but in the upright mode for carpet it won't **** at all.


    The tube in the power head probably has either a clog or a leak/crack. Since the hose attachment works fine, then the hose should be clear. You may be able to clear it without much difficulty, but replacement should be done at the Hoover shop.

    How do you remove brushes and clean under the cover?


    I too have this machine. On this particular model the brushes are not removable like on the newer versions. You can either purchase a "cleaning wand" from Hoover OR create your own as follows: Simply obtain a pendaflex hanging file folder (legal size) and remove the metal rods. These rods work exactly like the Hoover wand they try to sell you. They are quite flexible and easily slide thru the clear plastic openings at base of cover. The hooked ends work wonders in removing furballs, hair and other debris that gets trapped under the cover.

    Here is the link to Hoover's manuals. I could not locate a model F5900-900 But i believe it is F5914-900. Please verify before downloading manual by checking the serial number stick for a model. Its silver and should be on the back or bottom.
