My Hoover Turbo power 4900 does not have enough power to pick up lint off the floor - when I hold my hand up to the attachment, I could say there is not suction - any suggestions?

There should be a bottom plate covering the brush roll that you can remove, if you can't dig out the what is in there, try using your hose and suck it out from the bottom, maybe you will be able to get it out.

The vacuum has no suction at the floor. I have checked the hose, and no blockage. When I try to use the attachments, still no suction. What could be the problem.

Hello,
I would advise you to ALWAYS to FIRST UNPLUG YOUR VACUUM before beginning any service procedure.

You definitely have a clod between the tube by the brushroll area and the attachment hose and the best way is to take a wire hanger and make a little hook on the end to see if there is a clog, the clog is closer to the fan area and anything big would clog up the area sideways and
-- you may have to remove the top cover to see if there is a clog and to better get @ it from the top. Another suggestion is to do a belt change whether you have one or 2 belts on the vacuum and to change the belts @ the same time every 4 to 6 months. Also, check you owner’s manual under trouble shooting to see if there is something else, other wise that is what I think is the problem. 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.

SOURCE: Hoover SteamVac Model F5887-920 - hand attachment won't spray

I have a model I got in 2001. I found that the water sprayer on the hand tool is driven by a little turbine that relies on suction from the main vacuum motor. I eventually found that the spindle inside the turbine had separated and hence the hand-tool wouldn't spray. I glued it together but that only fixed the problem until it broke again. I am going to buy another (about $23).

SOURCE: No Problems with suction on hoses, however brush area it seems to lose powe, and has little suction r

We had a similar problem with ours and had to finally take it to the repair shop. They informed us that we needed to replace our clutch and that you needed to do that every 2-3 years. It cost less than $100 and has been well worth it.

SOURCE: No Suction

The water channel hose could be torn. you can check by removing the lower tank and tilting it backwards, it is located in the lower section. could also be the filter cover. it is needed for full suction control.

My Hoover windtunnel brush is spinning but not picking up. I cleaned everything out, but still not picking up. There is another small set of 2 wheels that is not spinning. Could that be the problem?


If it's been over 6 months replace the belt or belts. stretch belts lose elasticity soon after being installed which is why they should be replaced frequently. Your belt may still spin the brushroll but not fast enough to clean carpets properly. After a few months it will pick up some of the sandy gritty soils but will force some of it down into the carpet fibers. Eventually it will become so stretched. It will not pick up hair and lint.

My Hoover U5491900 Anniversary Windtunnel will not pick up very well, there is good suction when I use the attachments, but when I use it on the floor it won't pick up much, what is wrong with it and how...


The reason why it is not picking up well is because the belt is worn or stretched and it can't turn the brush (which picks up debris) against the resistance of the carpet. Here is the belt you need:

Detergent Container spring and plug


won't spray out water to wash neither with the hand attachment, nor with the floor shampooer! This was a lemon since I got it. They made me send it to Madison Wi which was costly enough but then they kept it for months, then they sent it to one of their offspring stores and I had to drive an hour and back to pick it up! This is all at my expense. I used it 2-3 times and I have the same problems again! They said is was a pump, but how many pumps can a person go through being I use this machine like 1-2 times per year??? I need to use it in my motorhome and thought the hand attachment would work, but it won't spray either! HELP.
