Did not go the distance

By Edowd

Comments about Hoover T-Series Windtunnel Upright Vacuum:

I bought this model 3.5 years ago, hoping it would induce me to vacuum more often. Well, it seemed great for a while. I only had s couple big rugs, no major burden, and I rarely put it to use as it is. But it still didn't last. The mini attachment worked great on the stairs. But, I soon grew disappointed with everything but the rewind. First, the handy attachment I'd envisioned cleaning stairs and sofa with got no suction. I cleaned the entire unit and the filter: no improvement. Then, the filter rubber tore while cleaning it. No one sells a replacement, so I had to glue it. That worked well until a couple months ago when a high-pitched, gut-churning scream started emanating from the thing every time I switched it on. I special ordered a new filter, thinking this was the problem. It wasn't. Turns out, the motor was going bad already: a $100 fix. It's basically trash now.

Wonderful, so far!

By Topkick

Comments about Hoover T-Series Windtunnel Upright Vacuum:

We bought this vac. a month ago, after reading the glowing reviews it got in "Consumer Reports" It works every bit as well as our old Dyson (that suffered from "degenerative plastic syndrome" after ten years of use). The only negative comment we could make would be that the rewind mechanism could have been mounted a bit higher on the machine to aid in avoiding running over the power cord (which is a common complaint with all vacs, by the way)! We hope we get the same serviceability from this as we did our Dyson, but, if not, I could buy four of these for what I paid for just one Dyson; so, I'm willing to replace this one a bit more often and, I'll still be ahead, all things considered!!

I have had this vacuum ...

By The_Inspector_069

from Belleville, IL, United States

Comments about Hoover T-Series Windtunnel Upright Vacuum:

I have had this vacuum for a total of six years. I have never ran into a mechanical issues. However, the cord holder on the handle is made poorly. The cord was pulled, thereby breaking the lower tab that supports the cord. I also experienced lose of suction. I cleaned the washable filter, replaced my HEPA filter, and there wasn't much of an improvement. I decided to clean the internal part(s) located in the Dirt Cup section. This will require a philips head screw driver. I was surprised of the volume of dust on the cone like shaped part. I washed all parts in a mild detergent. Allowed them to dry for three hours, and reassembled. Now my vacuum cleaner performs as new.

Great vacuum when cared for and cleaned correctly

By ladysadi

from Manhattan, KS

Comments about Hoover T-Series Windtunnel Upright Vacuum:

I've had this vacuum for a couple of years now and have had relatively few problems. I love that it can be almost completely taken apart if needed. My husband once vacuumed up fresh vomit (of the human variety) despite my protests, so I had to tear off all pieces to bleach the smell out of it. FYI, the agitator bar cannot be bleached and still work after! I only wish the roller brush attachment would work. It wasn't long after I got it that the suction was never sufficient enough to turn the brush anymore. Maybe it's a problem with the brush and not the suction?

Best vacuum ever!!

By mamalilli143

Comments about Hoover T-Series Windtunnel Upright Vacuum:

I bought this same vacuum about five years ago and my children would make insane messes throughout the day and there wasn't a mess that was too big for this particular vacuum. I'm talking about full boxes of cereal or even those large tin cans full of popcorn that was poured out on the floor. It are through it all and it left the floor with no crumbs left behind ( just like you see on those infomercials ) I used the vacuum up to twenty times day on some days. I just recently had to put it to rest since my children ruined the cord. I've been searching for a new vacuum and I am actually going to purchase this vacuum again. It's definitely worth every penny spent on it. I highly recommend this particular vacuum

Not Sure

By Sadly Dissapointed

from District Heights, MD

Comments about Hoover T-Series Windtunnel Upright Vacuum:

I purchased this vacuum 7 months ago. I have had problems already. The hose jams at the bottom of the vacuum which will cause it to overheat and shut off. I called the manufacturer and I was instructed how to remove the hose and unclog the vacuum. I did not expect to have to work on a vacuum cleaner that I considered to be still new.

One hard working, long lasting vacuum!

By driftwood

from Newtown, CT, United States

Comments about Hoover T-Series Windtunnel Upright Vacuum:

This vacuum is a really hard working unit! I bought mine from Sears over 3 years ago, replacing a Eureka tank type. The bag costs and hassle was really getting to me...with bags, the more stuff in the bag, the less suction.....so at half full you have perhaps 25% productivity! This unit can be stuffed beyond the FULL line on the clear tank, and still getting 80% of the suction. We have 2 long haired dogs that seem to shed incessantly.....this vacuum manages quite well! I also have a wood burning stove running easily 3 months/year....great heat source, but messy. I clean the hearth area constantly and this machine not only manages the fine dust well, it does a great job of picking up the wood chips and other debris! I work this machine HARD, so when I do a clean out, I'm thorough. Each time I do the major weekly cleaning, I empty the unit, pull out hair and debris that it visible, and wash the clear tank parts down in the kitchen sink, including a thorough dishwashing soap clean of the foam filter. When it's working, the only time I see the suction indicator showing orange, there's a plug in the hose.... its easily audible and always some large or long chunk of something that doesn't belong in a home vacuum cleaner! I would absolutely give this machine a 5 star rating except for the hose length and attachment problem! Fortunately, I still had all the attachments from the Eureka and quickly fashioned a connector with a piece of standard plastic plumbing pipe....giving me an extra long combination of parts and hose to do the wood floors, ceiling moldings, door casings, light fixtures and so on....along with furniture and the like which was included. Great vacuum, well built, powerful, quiet, built pretty well and has a wonderful filtering system!

I 've had this vacuum for ...

By Bootsie

Comments about Hoover T-Series Windtunnel Upright Vacuum:

I 've had this vacuum for 6 years and it works great. I thought I would have to buy a new one when this onw shut down and stopped working. I took it apart and cleaned it and now it works great again. I guess it shut down because it was dirty and instead of burning up it shut itself down.

Over-heats, electrical system problems

By Anonymous

from Manhattan, NYC, NY, United States

Comments about Hoover T-Series Windtunnel Upright Vacuum:

The Hoover was used less than 12 times in 6 months when it develoved over heating problems. My whole apt is 610 sq feet of hard wood floors. So between little use of the machine, and the fact it has only been used on hard wood floors I fully expected this Hoover upright bagless to last many years. After all Consumers Research gave it a "Best Buy" recommendation. After talking to Hoover's 'help' line [very nice people = useless waste of time] it will cost me more to get the machine {there & back} to the repair center than I paid for it. My cleaning help {I'm disabled} threw away the box & the shipping carton. Keep the boxes! As my experience seems to be typical you will need them at some point to return the item to a service center. This is my second Hoover, 1st was a canister which was recalled for fire hazzards. Both of the Hoovers had/have electrical system problems, even though they were purchased years apart. My conclusion is: Hoover has NOT solved their power/electrical issues. BUYER BEWARE!

Very shockingly works excellent

By Anonymous

from Florida, United States

Comments about Hoover T-Series Windtunnel Upright Vacuum:

I have had mine for almost 2 years. It works very well, and cleans after kids and kitty cats. The wheel broke, and we still love it. Sometimes it needs to be cleaned out, because it is getting old, but, it still sucks very well. I use it to suck up everything on our floor, and it helps my allergies stay under control. It goes from my kitchen rugs to hardwood floors, to my shag rugs, to my soft bedroom carpet, and then my furniture! Great Vacuum! I am an oreck girl, but, I gave this a chance and it showed me what it could do to make me change my mind. Good job hoover!
