Yes you do need to attach the hose. That way what the brush roll picks up will go thru the hose and then into the bag.

I have a dyson dc25 pet vacuum. While using the brush head stopped. I took it apart, the brushes are clean and the belt hasn’t snapped. There is power to the hoover as you can used all the attachments with...

DC25s are not Hoovers, they are Dysons. And they are terrible vacuum cleaners. We see more DC25s for repair than all the other Dysons. Toss it and buy a Miele or Sebo.

Doesn't seem to have much suction when I put my hand under the head. Have cleaned both the filter and the mesh screen

Check the suction from the hose for rge tools see if there is suction

also check to see if there is a obstruction on the short hose to the nozzle

Hoover u5140 900 doesnt start....its dead

These are known for switches going bad. The new switches are much better. They get hot and stay in either the on or off position when they go bad. Remove the top cover to reveal the back of the switch. Not difficult to change. This is your part:

The vacume was plugged. Believe I unplugged it, but now it just blows air OUT, does not **** in. Everything is emptied and cleaned. Don't know what to do next. Just had new carpet installed today, and...

Even tho its empty and clean, if the hosing is blocked up then it will not **** up anything.
The hosing down below the attachment hose may still be blocked up and that will have to be cleared for it to suction again.

remove the attachment hose look down the hose at the back. you can also flip over the machine and look for the attachment hose to come to the brush roller. I assume it is blocked up there and not picking up properly.

Good luck.

Have a hoover model F5914-900 it wont spray anything out the hose attachment. The line isn't clogged any ideas?

Yes, one thing to try: With the hose attached, place your hand over the suction opening at the pick-up end of the hose. Then pull the trigger. The pump is suction driven, and if there is air in the water line in the hose, that is known to allow th hose to prime in about 10 to 15 seconds.

My Hoover upright vacuum runs but isn't picking up

Either it's clogged, has a broken belt, or the bag needs to be replaced.
Hope this helps.

No suction in carpet cleaning mode with Empower

Check the nozzle . Turn it over on it's belly and remove the 4 screws that hold the base plate on. Take off the plate and remove the brushroll. I bet you will see a clog in the intake. If not take it to your local vac shop and let them fix it.

Dog hair from vacuum is being laid back onto carpet

my plush carpet and dog hair do not go together! I realized with this particular model and in my environment, the bag fills in one vacuuming! I literally dug out all the dirt I could by taking it apart and then changing the bag. Voila!

Hoover Steam Vac - water leaks

May be an "o" ring missing. Being brand new, it is under warranty, you have a 1 year warranty, so you may want to take it for repair.
