Hello everyone,

Today whilst i was vacuuming my house with my hoover junior 1334 the suppressor blew. To stop this frightning experience from ever happening again i have took the sensible decision to remove the suppressor from all of my vintage vacuum cleaners. One of my models is the hoover junior 1224 but i am not sure wether this has a suppressor. I would like to know before taking it apart so if someone could just give me a yes or a no to if it has a suppressor i would be more than greatful.

Thank you, jake

I wouldn't recommend just blindly removing all the parts out of fear.

I know its a risk but i dont want the other vacuum cleaners to go bang like the 1334 did!

Hi Jake,
Looking through the 1964 Hoover parts catalogue, the 1224 has a TV choke listed as part no 619481, the 1334 suppressor is part no 618164, so it doesn't sound as if they would be compatible. I certainly wouldn't start stripping the 1224. If you are able to hold out until after Christmas, I have a 1334A base & motor which I was going to scrap as the housing is cracked and the motor bearings need replacing, I will see if I can get the suppressor out of it as a donor to your machine.

Thank you but,

I dont want to replace the suppressor in the 1334 as they can blow up like the previous one did. I was asking about the 1224 becaue i wanted to know if it had a suppressor or not because if it did i wanted to remove it and throw it away not put it in the 1334. The suppressors in vintage machines are prone to blowing so they are better off just being removed.
