I have had a hoover Z400 sitting in my garage for several years now, the machine is fully functional except for one crucial part, the filter.

Years ago when I first got the machine I replaced several parts including the filter. However the entire batch of hepa filters that had been most recently made for the machine were made incorrectly, specifically the metal shaft which goes into the machine and allows the filter to spin. Instead of creating a new batch of filters TTI decided instead to make the part NLA (I only found this out months later after trying to get my money back....)

I have since tried to remove the shaft from the old filter and fit it into the new one, and I left that at the local vac shop to do for me while I kept the improperly made shaft and old, dirty filter. Fast forward to now and the vac shop seems to have lost my filter, so I have been trying to grind the shaft I have to make it fit in the machine and fit the old dirty filter. Needless to say it isn't going well.

My only hope is that someone on here has a filter, new or used (I do not care at this point) or even an entire machine they would like to get rid of. I appreciate any help.


P.S. Sorry for the long post, I am just very frustrated at this thing.
