Hoover U5399-900 WindTunnel Lite Upright Vacuum\015 I am looking for a part # or any info to help me find a replacement final filter for this vacuum. Not the filter under the bag. This would be the filter that is placed into the side door that slides open and closed. The previous filter I had was multi-layered, but I had to trim it to fit the door. The length is 6 5/8 inches; but this size seems to only be for the NON-self-propelled Hoovers. I could have sworn the Hoover U5399-900 WindTunnel Lite Upright Vacuum was self-propelled. Frustrated with these crazy vacuum manufacturers! (and myself for throwing away the manual years ago, hahaha)\015
How to Identify and Fix Common Vacuum Problems ?
Our sources include academic articles, blog posts, and personal essays from experienced Vacuum Technicians :
“You cannot clean a HEPA filter by using something like a vacuum because the particles are trapped not only on the surface of the filter but also deep inside the media,” Bloemer says.
Any fine dust remaining in the filter can usually be removed with a gentle rinse under a cold tap – hold the filter under the running water until the water runs clear. You shouldn`t need to use any detergent – just water.

.hope this helps if they dont have your part they should be able to get one or direct you to another supplier..
.A clog in the hose, UR or canister. Detach hose. Drop small coin in one end and lift hose causing it to roll out the other. If it does, no clog in hose. Drop same coin into hose opening on power head. If it rolls out, no clog in PN.
.Broken fan blades, UR. Needs to be taken to shop for repair/replacement.
.A reset button is for use if the motor isn’t running, so won’t have anything to do with the suction.
.My educated guess is that it’s either the switch or the power cord. Here are a couple of guides to help with diagnosis and repair…
.Hope this helps!!
. Like most Dyson vacuums, DC17’s main suction motor is protected by a thermostat which shuts the machine down if it starts to overheat. This could be due to a blockage, and the filter may also need a wash. If this occurs, the separate brush bar motor will still run if you recline the vacuum, and shut off when you stand the vacuum upright.
. The vacuum should reset itself automatically after it’s cooled down for around 2 hours. To prevent this from reoccurring, please wash the filter as shown in our video guide – in normal use this should be done at least once every 3 months. Use cold water without detergent, and allow the filter to dry completely for at least 24 hours before replacing it.
..Once you’ve done this it’s important to check the vacuum for any blockages – our Support guide will walk you through each checkpoint to make sure nothing is missed: http://www.dyson.com/support/dc17/dc17-allfloors/diagnosis-root-menu/dc17filterwashvid/flo-dc17-wand-suction
.This should resolve the issue. However if the issue reoccurs when the filter is clean and there are no obstructions in the airways, there could be an issue with the cyclone pack itself. If this is the point please contact us directly, as we’d appreciate the opportunity to provide further assistance.

Once you have the main body housing cover off, then you can access the 2 screws atop of each trunnion cover that holds the motor assembly cover halves together. If you’ve made it this far, then gently pry apart the motor halves keeping even as yo do. Now you can see all the wiring necessary to cut and splice. Happy cord replacing! As for me, I am headed for the store, as I am not so sure I can remember how to get the darn thing put back together. But it was fun taking it apart!
