Post# 180394   5/9/2012 at 11:00 (2,892 days old) by hoovermad ()        

Afternoon all,I'm new to the Vacuumland forums,but i've been on the Automaticwasher forum for a couple of years,for anyone that might know me from there it's Neil(electradeluxe)

I've got a Hoover Purepower 1300w,My mum let me take it with me when i moved over to Blackpool as it was too heavy for her to manage up and down the stairs,We bought it new in summer 2000 and it's still going strong,a fantastic machine in my opinion,

But a couple of years back,the release pedal started to weaken and eventually it snapped,

I'm planning to replace all the filters as they've never been changed,just washed,but i plan to replace the release pedal too so it can stand up without falling over,so i wanted to ask if this task is going to be easy or is it a bit of a fiddly job,the part is only cheap so i might aswell give it a bit of TLC,any tips or advice would be much appreciated

Thanks

Neil

It's good to see you want to keep it going, rather than replacing it, even if it is a Purepower...

Replacing the release pedal (which is a common weak part of the Purepower, even today - Why haven't HOOVER sorted it yet!?) is quite a fiddly job I believe, but can be done with some patience.

As for new filters, that's a very good idea after 12 years, quite frankly I'm surprised they are still in one piece after that long, ha ha!

I replace the filters in my 1994 HOOVER Turbopower (the Purepower's predecessor) every couple of years, cleaning them after every bag change.

the filter change is long overdue,the carbon filter is black,i've seen the kits on sale and it's not expensive,they've just been forgotten about,

have you any idea how i'd go about replacing the pedal? do i do it from the top or the bottom of the machine?

I'm not 100% sure, but I believe you'd have to take the casing of the cleaner head off.

If the exhaust filter is black, then you're lucky the motor hasn't overheated with lack of air flow.

i live in an apartment where all the floors are wood,the floors get swept and mopped most days,and once a week i'll get the hoover out just for the sofas and a quick whizz over the floors,

We're moving in 3 weeks and it's carpeted in most rooms,so it'll be used nearly every day,that's why i want to get the pedal done and the filters before we get there

I see, it'll be in regular use soon then.

I couldn't stand living somewhere with no carpets.

We have laminate in the living room and kitchen which I can't stand, but at least we have carpets upstairs and a large rug in the hall.

i hated having no carpets in this place,it just never felt warm,

i'm so glad we've got a place with carpet to look forward too,and they're cream coloured so i'll probably be hoovering every day, i might start a new hoover fund incase i burn the purepower out in the first month lol

Well if the new house is all carpets and no hard flooring, go for a dirty fan!

All of the HOOVER Senior Vacuum Cleaners were dirty fan and cleaned carpets BRILLIANTLY! Much better than any clean fan.

So, my advice is go for one of those, you WILL NOT regret it.

Plus, you will be able to get one for under 50, rather than spending over 100 for a new cleaner which won't clean half as well or last as long.

For illustration, here is my 1977 HOOVER Senior Ranger 400W Dirty Fan which picks up better than any modern cleaner despite having that extremely low wattage motor.

Hoover Purepower release pedal

It might be more than just the pedal: the whole lower chassis of the cleaner head is moulded as a single part, with wheels, agitator, hood and release pedal all fitting into the chassis.

Where the pedal sits, it stresses the plastic chassis, which splits, weakens or cracks, making the pedal not release properly when it is depressed. The user has to wrench the handle back with a customary "CRACK!" sound emanating from the ineffective pedal.

I had a Purepower 1500W that did this. Mum had an 1800W with the same problem.

God only knows why Hoover didn't strengthen that area. Turbopower 2&3 seemed better in that respect.

I can back Robert up on that, I've never had a problem with the release mechanism on my '94 Turbopower 1000. It doesn't lean, has very little play in it when upright and feels well made.

Unlike the mechanism on my 1993 Philips U800, which is living on borrowed time, as it keeps leaning further and further back every time I see it.

i was quite fancying a dyson dc41 if i was to get a new cleaner,i never thought of buying something reconditioned like the Hoover Senior

I know there are Dyson lovers here so I'll refrain from expressing my true feelings, but lets just say I'd rather have a Senior, for many reasons:

Cheaper (by hundreds!),
Better build quality,
Less to go wrong,
I could go on!

I'm sure David (twocvbloke) understands my feelings on that subject...

Don't pay a blind bit of attention to JM. He was only preaching weeks ago about the Clean Fan Hoover Turbopower 2 and 3 series - and you can find them on EBay or Gumtree.

No, if you have a home that has a lot of carpet but not completely carpet and hard floors - hard floors can be damaged by spinning brushes - a fact that JM seems to forget easily - and the Senior has metal bars that can tear up hard floor and vinyl. None of the trad Hoover uprights have beater bars that switch off when the hose is removed or when put in the upright position. So, if you will have to live with hard floors, do yourself a favour and either seek out a compact cylinder vacuum so that you have the best of both worlds. Reserve the Purepower for cleaning carpets only with light dusting with its short hose.

False information

The metal beater bars never caused any damage to vinyl flooring - it was the plastic activator on the Turbopower series that caused damage.

With hard floors, careful adjustment of the cleaner should avoid damage. Also, Hoover fit the modern Purepowers with a narrow diameter, soft brushroll, which can be retro-fitted to older machines, should you be so inclined. Or Parquet floor heads may be purchased as an optional after-market extra.

The Purepower has a long stretchable hose, but admittedly, there is no method of reducing the suction on modern Hoover uprights - unless you start drilling holes on the machine yourself. This makes the machine rather useless for light fabric cleaning.

Have to say I have never promoted the use of uprights on hard floors. I really don't like it. One would only need a small amount of grit to get stuck between the cleaner and a wood floor and that would be it. I have had a number of people bring in upright cleaners which had worn sole plates as a result of being shoved around hard floors. It makes me wonder what the floor looked like. I often used to sell the customer a generic floor tool as part of their service, for them to use on the end of the hose instead of pushing the whole machine over the floor.

I don't know why anybody thought I was promoting the use of uprights on hard flooring, because I wasn't.

I was advising be bought a HOOVER Senior (with metal beater bars) because he said his new house is CARPETED.

For hard flooring I ALWAYS use one of my cylinders, never an upright, as even if they have a hard flooring height setting they just don't work well.

No, I'm not forgetting that, I know fine well they have metal beater bars and that they do damage hard flooring - BUT, he said he was moving into a CARPETED house, not a hard floored house.

I did, to clarify, ask him if it had hard flooring too, but with no reply.

Tell me about it Jamie. Those Goblin/Philips/Delonghi uprights ALWAYS leaned badly. Even when new out of the box, they had a lean. The handle release on them is very loose. Both my u700 and u800 lean about the same. There's nothing you can do about it on these, sadly. Best thing to do, is avoid tilting it backwards to wheel it off - lift and place rather than doing this.

just to clear up any confusion,my new home is carpeted throughout except for the kitchen and bathrooms,which are tiled,that's why jmurray recommended i should go for a senior if i was to get a new cleaner
,if you read back i said the apartment i was currently living in has all wood floors and i don't use the cleaner much at the moment

I know what I read though JM - you missed the fact that the bathroom and kitchen were hard floored which is why I recommended the cylinder vac with suction only idea.

Sorry Rolls - I disagree where metal bar rollers are concerned on hard floors - but I only refer from my own experiences of growing up. My parents own Senior Ranger and Junior with metal beater bars had a couple of issues with vinyl floors, especially uneven at the time which my parents weren't aware of. So when they ran the machines over the vinyl floors through the years, the floors did get beaten as well as damaged. Vinyl when it is new is soft and pliable as I'm sure you're aware but once it is glued or nailed down it becomes tough but pretty easy to get damaged by the constant vibration, liable to loosen carpet frames and tacks, then reveals edges sticking out and liable to break off when a metal beater bar passes over it. My parents soon learnt to manually broom hard floors until it became difficult later on in life, and used a certain stick vacuum (Miele S160) with a soft parquet hard brush.

Sebofan only suggested what he did because of the fact using a brush becomes harder work than shoving a cylinder hoover over the floor to clean it. Not to mention is a more efficient way of doing it with no dust clouds or breeze to blow the dust about once disturbed. Its sucked straight up into the bag which is what a vac does.

Jamie I have noticed your attitude of late and considering the obvious company you seem to be keeping with some of your comments and name dropping here there and everywhere its not surprising.


Might I suggest bluntly (other members have been dropping hints which you dont seem to be seeing) that you take a step back and assess what you post and how it will be percieved. Sweeping statements with no evidence or poor observing make for poor posting. Quality not quantity again.

I didnt cross any line but I seem to have seen you crossing it though with lack of respect for Sebofan and his informative post.

He didnt deserve any of the comments posted about what he had said - all of it quite true.

Perhaps you fail to see it is out of respect for yourself I have said what I have said. You were a member offering valuable input here but lately that seems to have declined with exactly the observations of mine that I have pointed out.

Still it also ties in with the attitudes of other persons you associate with just like I noted above.

Hoovermad - sorry I didn't pick up on the brush mop etc - which is why I suggested the cylinder vacuum and quite rightly the comment was understood clearly by turbomaster. Im sorry if I sound harsh JM, but you must understand that just by offering ONE viewpoint on a forum, it's not the be and end all. If hoovermad had intended (or anyone infact) to ask a question to ONE member, hoovermad should have addressed the message to you directly, as have other members on here.

I apologise if I come across harsh. Bear in mind though JM that the good advice by turbomaster "...Sweeping statements with no evidence or poor observing make for poor posting..." should be taken on. There is really no point in continually trying to recommend the Hoover or the Electrolux or any other canister vacuum you've picked up as being the sole machine for every advice thread that pops up here by other members.

I understand and will refrain from recommending specific makes and models in future, unless the OP asks.

The reason I recommended the Senior though, was because it is the only dirty fan Vacuum Cleaner I own and I am very pleased with the quality of carpet cleaning it provides, but I probably should have said "or, any other good dirty fan cleaner another member cares to recommend".

Or any other upright vacuum including the Hoover's latest bagless Turbo Power range, for that matter. Depends on what hoovermad wants. If they want to stick to the Hoover brand, then any machine may be suitable. Not all vacuum cleaner fans will buy second hand though regardless of whether its from a fellow collector or not and as Hoovermad notes in thread response 11, a Dyson DC41 may well be the answer.

If he wants a DC41, it's up to him. Personally though I'd rather use a manual sweeper... Whoops, there I go again, I must stop saying things that will get people riled up!

Carrying on with that note though, I believe the HOOVER Turbo Power is similar to the Dyson DC41, which was perhaps HOOVER's intention.

Mmm.. if the Turbo Power swivels, then yes I can see it being a rival to the Dyson DC41. If its fixed, then it is in no way a rival to the Dyson's ball invention. The Turbo Power replaces the Hoover Slalom (the one that did swivel) and certain bagless Hoover Freedom uprights - they use the same Airvolution TTI inspired cyclone system.

No but JM yet again, you are missing the point - there are vacuums on the market that don't have FILTERS built in that require to be bought to be changed. Oreck for example - they only use the high filtration aspect of dust bags - and Hoover had them out well before the 1970's! Don't give me the excuse that filters are essential - they've only been added to meet the requirements of people who get allergies - apparently.

Your Swivel function that you claim isn't available on older machines isn't quite true either. The swivel on the uprights these days have been taken from cylinder vacuums - so if you say the swivel isn't necessary, how do cylinder vacuum cleaner floor heads function?

Hello hoovermad

I would SERIOUSLY consider the dyson DC41. I have owned mine since the day before the release (because I'm good :) )

I vacuum at least twice daily after 3big dogs and a cat and this machine saves quite some time!

If there are any specific questions you have for this model I would be more than happy to answer them for you.

hi mate,i'm starting the saving funds pretty soon,my sister in law has a similar model and she loves it!

i've noticed that the machines have assembly work when you purchase them,so first question would be are they straight forward to assemble?

And second question is are the filters easy to get to and clean out,do they need changing or would they be lifetime filters,the machines are pretty expensive to buy so it's worth asking incase there's extra costs to upkeep them

This is one reason I keep my Vax Mach Air - it has a few problems but when it comes to cleaning up pet hair and associated stuff, the bagless idea is better. Not healthier, but faster to get everything up in a "one-er" and faster to empty out afterwards. I think it's also substantially cheaper than the Dyson DC41 but then I don't think you get as good a cyclone system on board.

Yes but these swivelling uprights are a next step up from cylinder vacuums - they are using a design element that has already been established. Same with U.S uprights that have auto cord rewind built in. It isn't exactly new, but it's giving buyers a chance to have a similar control action to what cylinder vacuums have been doing best at for years. Buyers/owners are different, they have different needs, thus even if you think swivel necks are not necessary, some buyers may well feel it is.

It just depends on personal preference I suppose.

I wouldn't expect a UK made upright to have automatic cord rewind and to be honest wouldn't want it to, as it's just another thing that isn't necessary but is a liability.

Same with that swivel "ball", I personally don't see a need for it, but maybe others do. I accept that, but it doesn't mean I don't believe a standard upright can't manoeuvre just as well as one with a ball.

And that's why I love my 1993 Philips U800 and 1994 HOOVER Turbopower 1000 which fit under furniture easily :)

The absence of automatic cord winders on upright cleaners could well be due to the fact that the very shape of an upright machine lends itself very easily to having two hooks to manually wind the lead around, with less bending down than one would have to do on a cylinder with similar storage facility. So in that sense, the automatic cord winder could be seen as somewhat redundant on an upright. Also, when on-board tools became fashionable, this added to the overall weight of the cleaner. On models with automatic cord winders, they were heavier still. This can be off putting to a good deal of users. I used to get a lot of Hoover Turbopower and Turbomaster cleaners which required attention to the automatic winder. I think they were the most problematic of all.

Everything is easy with the dyson and the filters are washable. I have jut done mine after over 3months of heavy use and the filters were still clean, which makes washing them out a cinch!

There are about 4things to click to the machine for assembly. Again really easy.

You want to check out askdyson on YouTube. It's will show you all you need to know!!

I'm excited for it putting your Hoover to shame!

The thing is though, auto cord rewind mechanisms aren't that heavy to add to an upright vacuum. One of the worst vacuums I ever bought was the awful Dirt Devil Stick vac (Tesco/ASDA still sell them to this day, I think) - the Dirt Devil DDMSTK1 (not TTI as far as I'm aware). Good design, but woeful on power and a suction only floor head. It has a round bezel on the rear where the cord comes out the back and has a handy push button for the release. Handy for caravans unless you have carpets in them. It was the auto cord rewind and the hose I liked on that machine, as well as taking up little room like a small fire extinguisher when the handle was folded over.

Total weight of this stick vac is about 4kg.
