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

from Tonawanda, NY, United States

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!

This vacuum sucks!

By overfiend1976

from Mission, KS, United States

Comments about Hoover T-Series Windtunnel Upright Vacuum:

Literally. And that's a great thing. I look at other low star reviews on here, and I have to wonder how much of it is due to user error. I have seen so many vacuums discarded alongside the road and out of mild curiosity, have stopped more than once to investigate them, and nearly always, the rotary brushes are full of hairs/string/rubber bands, etc., or there are clogs inside of the main hosing or filters. People seem to think vacuums are these magical devices that you use to clean, and simply dumping the canister after it's full is enough. I tear my Hoover down 3-4 times a year and clean it out entirely. All the compartments, hoses, attachments, filters and the brush. And thus, my vacuum has been working without issue for nearly five years now.

New Windtunnel Rewind

By Sanderella

from Tampa FL

Comments about Hoover T-Series Windtunnel Upright Vacuum:

I ordered the Windtunnel online and shipped it to my home. It had good reviews, but I think it could be better. I like the light weight. The cord is shorter then my other vac and the tools are not good quality, basically not comparable to the previous vac tools I have. The nice things, bagless and the cord rewinds itself.

What an Aggrivation

By made in the USA

from Chas. SC

Comments about Hoover T-Series Windtunnel Upright Vacuum:

I had a hoover that lasted me for many years so when I needed a new vacuum I looked for a hoover. I've bought 6 different hoover vacuums and all of them have been terrible quality. I can't seem to find a single one that lived up to my old one. I'm giving up on hoover now and going to a different brand. even if it costs more. It's worth the extra money to get something that works.

Works for our small house

By BRENNVLB

from New Jersey, United States

Comments about Hoover T-Series Windtunnel Upright Vacuum:

We've had this vacuum just about 2 years, and I think it's great quality for the cost (purchased for $120 on sale). The attachment hose could definitely be longer, but overall I like the features it has (especially the rewind cord). My biggest comlaint about this vacuum is that I CANNOT find the replacement exhaust HEPA filter anywhere!! Sure, it is available to order online but if you try to find it at a retail store, it simply does not exist. I have checked Home Depot, Walmart (which is where we bought the vacuum), and Lowes and none of them carry this filter. This is extremely disappointing, I wish I had known this before I purchased the vacuum.
