How to Identify and Fix Common Vacuum Problems ?
Our sources include academic articles, blog posts, and personal essays from experienced Vacuum Technicians :
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.

Can’t find my manual and I need to use the shop vac for water in basement, do I have to change the filter or what
lost my user manual never used it to pick up water. need to know how to puit it in wet mode i want to clean the dirty water out of my pool.
.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
.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.
Looked at filter as per manual instructions but it was free of lint.
Need to fix it, help please?
Vacuum was used less than 10/12 times
.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.
