I have Hoover Widepath Bagless 12 Amp Windtunnel

Hi There,

When a vacuum cleaner smokes, it is usually only one of two possible problems.

It could either be that your motor burned up, or that your belts burned. The belts on this particular model are notorious for breaking, but the fact that your machine doesn't come on at all after this happened, sounds like it may be the motor.

Both of these issues have a unique smelling smoke. If the smoke smelled like an electrical burning smell, this indicates it's your motor. If the smoke smelled more like burning rubber, then it's probably your belts.

If the smoke smelled like burning rubber, here's a video that we've recorded showing step by step how to inspect, trouble shoot, and replace the belts on your vacuum cleaner. If you open it up and the belts are still in tact, then this probably is a more serious problem of the motor burning out.

. I'd be more then happy to walk you through more advanced diagnosing if this doesn't fix your problem, please just use the comment box here on the Fixya repair page.

If this was helpful to you, please be so kind and rate my repair helpful, or leave some feedback for me. This is really appreciated by the Fixya community if the repair solution was able to fix your problem.

Thanks again,

Chris Jones

Hoover Smart Wash 52000. The wash and dry light are blinking?

You posted to the category 'Dishwashers', but this looks like it is an Australian Hoover carpet cleaner? If both lights are on and blinking than they are indicating a jam with the brush roll of your SmartWash.

Hoover dynamic fault code

If error code E2 appears in your display there is a problem with the water supply. It may be that the water pressure is very low or no water is flowing in. Check that the water supply is switched on or that the hose has not got twisted or kinked during the installation which will prevent water flowing into the machine. An E2 Error code indicates that the washer is still draining after 8 minutes. Check the following: Check that the drain hose is not more than 391 ?3" (100 cm) from the floor. Remove any clogs from the drain hose.

My Hoover Apollo Deluxe clothes dryer has stopped working as in the heating doesn't work but all else is fine. Is it worth fixing as it's so old?

Wow, a late 1980 machine! If it is turning and not heating it probably needs a new heating element, IF you can find one. New ones are more energy efficient and look prettier. They also have sensing programs to stop drying when the clothes are dry and my Whirlpool has a water injector to steam refresh clothes or remove creases before you wear. https://www.google.com/search?q=Hoover+Apollo+Deluxe ..

REPLACE HOSE ON HOOVER H3000 FLOORMATE

For our H3000, the "water channel hose" was torn (15+ years later, still worth it to keep the SpinScrub going... however it appears the exact part w/ end pieces is no longer available). So, what's promising is that the old hose can be removed from the 2 end pieces -- found out that the "1.5 inch tubing" from Amazon is a bit too difficult to thread into. Looking for a more suitable size, perhaps 1.25 (OD - outer diameter) because of this. Many thanks, responses above are great -- here's a WEBSITE with fantastic PHOTO DETAILS step-by-step I came across... thanks everyone! https://www.educationdx.com/FLOORMATE-repair-cleaner-parts-2.html

Hi. I have a Hoover Condenser Aqua vision Dynamic Mega 10kg Dryer. When it is working after about 10 minutes it starts Buzzing but the dryer keep working. We have it since 2017.

If the buzzing is coming from the motor, it is likely that the run capacitor is failing. Call for service.

I have a hoover F5853-900 steam cleaner.Everytime i lift it up the brushes turn but when they are on the carpet they quit.I got told that this model does not have a belt.I really love this steam clean

The brushes are turned by a motor. No belt. It's possible the gears on the brushes have a flat spot on them which would stop them from turning under a load.

I just replaced my hoover belt and it is too loose

Greetings from GoVacuum,

The belt is going to be loose as long as the vacuum cleaner is in the upright posistion. If you have the vacuum cleaner with the handle locked in the upright setting, then the belt will be tight around the skinny belt. Once you release the handle of the vacuum cleaner, you can watch as the belt tightens over the roller brush. There are numerous problems with this particular model. We have recorded a very helpful video review of how to replace the belt, and do basic maintenace for this particular model. Hopefully this will help you figure out the correct installation, and other maintenance work you can do yourself.

Here's the video;


If this still does not fix the problem, and the brush is still not spinning, please feel free to email me at chris.jones (at) govacuum.com. I'm always more then happy to try and help you fix the vacuum.

React Upright Floorsense. Why aren't headlights and Bluetooth working?

Sometimes, to fix Android Bluetooth not working, you might just need restarting it; especially if it's been left switched on for a while. Therefore, all you need to do is just simply off/on the Bluetooth connection. You'll see the Bluetooth icon, tap on it to switch it off. Now tap on it again to turn it on. To reset your system, delete the vehicle profile from your phone and disable the Bluetooth. Delete your phone profile in your vehicle system. Disable vehicle Bluetooth if there is such an option. Now enable the Bluetooth in your phone and the vehicle infotainment system and try to pair again. The likely cause is a fuse, headlight relay, headlight switch, dimmer switch or a wiring fault. About the only cause that is an easy fix is a blown fuse. Consult your owner's manual to locate the main fuse for the headlight circuit and replace that fuse with one having the same amp rating.

Error code “loc” appearing on my Hoover Dynamic Next tumble dryer model DX C9DG-89

Likely this is a machine state, not an error. 7. Keylock This function allows to block unwanted changes of the set options on the bezel , during drying phase. Activation/ Inactivation: Push 4 and 5 buttons simultaneously for two seconds . The sign "LOC" appears on the display. Unlocking the option, on the display appears the sign "Unl", only once. In case of opening of 'porthole' with activated key lock, the cycle stops but the lock is kept: to restart the cycle, you must remove the lock and restore Start. When the dryer is off, the option is automatically inactivated. Key lock can be modified at any time of the cycle. Suggest using the "app" if condition persists. https://service.hoover.co.uk/manuals/DX-C9DG.pdf

Can I replace my drum for my Hoover OPH714d washing machine

Usually the bearing is a press fit as is the pulley.To be sure of not damaging it, contact a domestic appliance repair shop for assistance and you could get some idea of how to do it and the tools required but it will probably be cheaper to replace the machine.Don't forget, Hoover have a 10 year parts guarantee.
