How to Identify and Fix Common Vacuum Problems ?

Our sources include academic articles, blog posts, and personal essays from experienced Vacuum Technicians :

Air Is Stuck in Pump or Hose

If the cleaner is still not spraying despite the water and detergent tanks being full, there may be a bubble of air stuck in the pump or the hose. To fix this, you need to turn the cleaner on and lower the hose down to the floor.

Although Hoover of course recommend their own detergent, we are using a 50/50 mixture of white vinegar and water, with a few drops of essential oil (tea tree oil) in it to improve the fragrance. This has worked well for us and is very inexpensive.

Clog located in the vacuum hose

Turn the unit on and feel the suction at the end of the hose handle. If there is no or low suction, then the clog is in the hose. You can remove the clog by running a long, stiff object through the hose, such as a butter knife, starting at the wall end.

We recommend running a cleaning programme every 40 wash cycles. To start the programme press button A for 5 seconds (see figure). The programme will start automatically and will run for about 70 minutes. To stop the cycle press the START/PAUSE button.
To keep your cleaner giving the best suction power and picking up efficiently we recommend that you empty the dust box when it is 2/3 full. Also cleaning the 2 filters once a week and washing them once per month is necessary to keep the cleaner working effectively.
For best results the filters can be washed in warm water but check they are thoroughly dry before putting them back into place, this may take up to 24 hours. Hoover recommend that you fit new filters once per year to keep your vacuum cleaner in tip top working order.
Washable and Reusable: Just wash the filter regularly using warm, soapy water, it can be used again after it is completely dry.
Daily care

If possible, vacuum your carpets every day to remove surface dirt and dust. Use a vacuum with a HEPA filter and change the filter every six months so you don`t blow pollutants back into the air.

Not really. Overall, carpets can stand to be vacuumed several times a week without sustaining damage. Leaving dirt in a carpet, however, actually breaks down underneath the carpet fibers.
After you get out your carpet cleaner, fill the clean tank to the line with hot (not boiling) tap water. Hot water does a better job cleaning than cold but, if you boil it, you run the risk of melting parts of your carpet cleaner. Add formula to the tank according to the bottle directions.
Heat reduces the surface tension of water, enabling faster, more efficient cleaning than with cold water.
Prepping Your Vacuum –

The first step before starting to vacuum should always be to check the filters and recovery bag. If the bag is anywhere near full, it should be changed before starting your job. A typical vacuum with a bag that is over 50% full can lose up to 80% of its vacuuming performance.

Go Slowly

Start on the far edge of your carpet or rug and push the vacuum forward in a straight line. This movement lifts the nap (or fibers) of the floor covering to reveal any dirt or debris hidden underneath. Then pull the machine back slowly toward you to collect all that debris.

While the Airflow measurement indicates how much air the central vacuum motor can move, the Suction measurement tells us the maximum pull the motor is capable of. This is determined by sucking a 2 inch column of water vertically to its maximum height in inches.
Vacuum flow determines the volume of air that can be moved over time, which translates to how quickly air can be suctioned. Common units of measurement for flow rates include cubic feet per minute (CFM), liters per minute, and gallons per minute, to name a few.
The normal range of the suction pressure is 0.8–1.2 MPa. If the suction pressure is greater than 1.2 MPa, connect a rubber hose for the pressure gauge to the gas pipe needle valve for the outdoor unit, and rotate open the pressure gauge to slowly release refrigerant.

ANSWER : .Vacuuming Liquids
.1. When picking up small amounts of liquid
.the filter may be left in place.
.2. When picking up large amounts of liquid
.we recommend that the filter be
.removed. If the filter is not removed, it
.will become saturated and misting
.may appear in the exhaust.
.3. After using the vac to pick up liquids,
.the filter must be dried to reduce the
.risk of possible mildew and damage to
.the filter.
.4. When the liquid in the drum reaches a
.predetermined level, the float mechanism
.will rise automatically to cut off
.airflow. When this happens, turn off
.the vac, unplug the power cord, and
.empty the drum. You will know that the
.float has risen because vac airflow
.ceases and the motor noise will
.become higher in pitch, due to
.increased motor speed.
.IMPORTANT: To reduce the risk of damage
.to the vac do not run motor with float
.in raised position

Brushes do not spin.

Vacuum was used less than 10/12 times
ANSWER : Solution for Hoover SteamVac (F7452-900) brushes not spinning
.Uses the turbine model and same solution would be similar. Root cause is simply the main gear attached to turbine becomes stuck. This problem should not happen as often as I see other people also having this problem. Must be a poor design on Hoover’s part. It takes about 30 minutes and a Phillips screw driver and wrench. Pretty easy, just have to remember what screws went where.
.Remove brushes, and front suction cover
.On the bottom of the machine:
.Remove the 4 screws behind brushes which attach the top faceplate
.Remove the 2 screws from base in the sunken holes
.Remove the two long silver screws from base which connect all the way to turbine assembly
.Stand machine upright
.Remove the floor select switch handle
.Remove 1 screw near the center beside the intake hole
.Remove the 2 screws over the rear wheels
.Remove faceplate cover, the front will need to be gently pried over the clear plastic part, be careful about the upright disengaging lever under faceplate, move it under the metal wire
.Remove the 2 screws in the front of the turbine assembly
.Remove the 2 hoses on either side
.Disengage the bar on the floor selector switch
.Pull out the turbine assembly
.Remove the 4 screws and 3 clips to separate the assembly
.Remove the filter (which is most likely clean since, cleaning this is the manufactures only solution)
.Remove the large white gear and with a wrench remove ball bearing
.Remove other large white gear
.Note that the metal gear attached to turbine will not move (this was my problem), with a wrench gently grab metal gear and twist free. Spin turbine to make sure it moves freely.
Put everything back together again and you should be good to go.
