Hoover Vacuums - Recent Questions, Troubleshooting & Support


sounds like something has got caught in the wheels/roller. Turn unit off, flip it upside down so you can see the bottom of the device and see if you can move wheels forward and backward...if you see something caught on the wheels, try and unroll it in the opposite direction. If the roller is jammed up, you may need to take the 4 screws holding the roller plate and then untangle/clean the roller and re-assemble.

Uh, may I encourage everyone to check the trigger under the handle...we went through taking the whole thing apart and it was just that the trigger was stuck in the open position, which poured the water out continually!

Can you be a bit more specific as Shark & Hoover are 2 different vacuum manufacturers. Shark is part of Ninja products and Hoover is a brand on its own! What small car bits are you referring to. As my best knowledge the only car detailing pieces that will work with either of those 2 vacuums are the ones they make and sell if they do. Some brands may not offer the detailing car kit! When I bought my Shark I got the pet care package and the car detailing kit! Those are some quite small pieces!
