I am 5 feet 9 inches tall male and have had great difficulty in bending down and working through it

RK, Amazon
29 March 2016
  • Summary: This went back. Extremely heavy. I compared it with Oreck and other available brands in the market but primarily with Oreck XL. It is very difficult to manage, I am 5 feet 9 inches tall male and have had great difficulty in bending down and working through it. Extremely noisy.

Self Propel stopped working

  • Summary: This is really an awesome vacuum if the self propelled system didn't stop working. It has a dirt level detector that actually works! It was so easy to use and cleaned very well. So if it works for you on your carpet type then you have one of the best vacuums on the market!

Good initially, a failure in 3 months

  • Summary: UPDATE: After only 3 months' use, I'm downgrading this review to 2 stars. The plastic housing and buttons on this vacuum are really cheap and flimsy, and already we have broken parts.

Hoover vacuum

  • Summary: Received the product and assembled it without a problem. I turned the vacuum on and it ran for about 30 seconds then it stopped forward movement and started to smoke. We checked settings and removed and replace handle. The brush rollers would not turn.

When it works, it's OK.

  • Summary: This is one of a series of Hoover vacuums that have the same poorly designed power switch and belt mechanisms. Both mechanisms are so badly planned and executed that they fail repeatedly, requiring unscrewing cover plates and resetting the parts so that they will function.

18 months later ......

gatorhiker, Amazon
19 January 2012
  • Summary: The vacuum was okay, but I wasn't as happy with it as I expected to be. Now 18 months after purchasing it it has stopped working but has a 3 year warranty so I'm working to see what Hoover can do for me.

Major Problem:

Disappointed, ABT Electronics
20 October 2010
  • Excerpt: The first time I tried to use it after we unpacked it, the brushes would not turn. I had to take it to a Hoover dealer in Chicago to have it fixed. Evidently the belt was off. I assume it was put on incorrectly at the factory. Hopefully that does not indicate it's future performance.
  • Cons: Brushes would not turn

Hoping this is a quirk ... but I'm still disappointed.

wildflowr, Amazon
29 November 2009
  • Summary: Reading some of the negative reviews on this product (the Y6485900 model), I had a few reservations but, given the approval of the majority of reviewers and Consumer Rpts recommendation, I went ahead with my purchase in June 2009 and had no complaints: it arrived safely by the first of July,...

Buyer Beware!!!

A. Beach, Amazon
20 July 2009
  • Summary: I have owned this vacuum for three years now. I have to say with a name like Hoover and the price I paid for it, I was expecting a quality product. I did my research and found this vacuum to be rated highly amongst users and Consumer Reports. What a disappointment!!!
