Both commercial and residential customers rely on Hoover vacuums for high-quality floor cleaning. When vacuums cease picking up dirt, floors remain grimy and any clogs can lead to further damage. Use these troubleshooting tips to identify and resolve any issues related to poor suction.
Poor suction can be the result of a clog in your hose or internal air path. Checking both is a simple task that can save time and money. Vacuum parts like hoses can become easily obstructed with hair, dirt and debris from the floor. When clogs go unchecked, it can lead to issues with the suction motor and air flow within the vacuum. Remove the hose from the vacuum and rinse thoroughly with water while gently tapping along the hose to loosen any built-up dirt.
Vacuum bags can be tested for fullness by hand and should be changed if they're beyond capacity. A full bag prevents dirt in the cleaning head from entering into the dirt chamber. The trapped debris in turn creates a clog, which can lead to potentially costly repairs. Make sure to change the bag regularly to ensure optimal suction from your Hoover vacuum.
The suction motor is responsible for moving air from the cleaning head to the dirt chamber. An unchecked clog or prolonged full bag can lead to restricted air flow that affects the operation of the motor. It should be replaced if it doesn't suction properly or turn on.
