Hi Tessa. The Nano won't go completely flat but it does go back about 110 degrees. You may want to take a look at our Air™: http://www.walmart.com/ip/Hoover-Windtunnel-Air-Multi-Cyclonic-Bagless-Upright-Vacuum-UH70400/14237595 or Air™ Steerable: http://www.walmart.com/ip/Hoover-Bagless-WindTunnel-Air-Steerable-Upright-Vacuum-UH72400/22904051. Their main handles go pretty flat and are great and cleaning under the bed. Hope this helps,

It goes fairly flat, but won't go all the way under the average bed. The hose attachment is so easy, however, that it's a simple matter to just switch and use that for going 'way under the bed.

Contact Hoover. You should have the phone number in the owner's manual (you can probably google it too). I did see the part number in the manual as well.

I believe the part number is also on the vacuum itself. Look on the bottom part of the vacuum.

Question

What filters/belts, etc.. does this vacuum use?

What filters/belts, etc.. does this vacuum use? It seems like this should be listed under the specs but I couldn't find it. With some of the vacuums I've looked at lately, the cost of these items has been extremely expensive - to the point that I could almost purchase an entire new vacuum completely. Just seems like that's the racket now - accessories needed for a product are ridiculously priced because they know you have to have them - so I'm pricing them ahead of time to be sure. Thanks for any help anyone is able to provide!

I went to my local vacuum store and had them order the part. Hoover belt 562633001. It was under $10, as I recall. Then, I realized I didn't need it, as the hardwood floor button had been pushed down, which releases the belt from spinning. Good luck

I dont know about the belts but the filters are washable and super easy to get too. I have used the previous version of this model and it lasted about 2 or 3 years before it slowly looses suction power and I upgraded to this one. Its still better than most the other vacuums I have used in the past. Far better..

There is a filter inside of the dust container (Part Number-304219001), also one just below the container (Part Number-562651001). Not certain how to change the belt (Part Number-562633001). All of these can be found at Hoover's website.

I don't have powder in a bathroom carpet that needs to be vacuumed, but I would imagine that it would. The suction really is that good! If it didn't come out using the carpet mode, using the hose attachment would probably get it out.

Because of the power the Nano has.... I think if you have small area bathroom rugs, you will find that the Nano will cause a problem as any vacuum would. If your bathroom carpet is not a throw rug type, I think you will be pleased with the performance of this unit. I would think using on small area rugs may not be best use of this unit's efficiency because of the power of suction.

Depending on whether it's carpet or a bathmat/rug it should still pick up fine. If it is a bathroom rug then you may want to use the hose and attachments on them. Hope this helps.

Does the top of the handle have a cap?

Or is mine missing? Where the extension tube connects into the handle, there is a hole at the top, it looks like maybe there should be a top/lid on it? I dont know if I should take it back to the store and exchange. Could someone let me know? Thanks!

answer 1
If you have the owners manual look on page 11. If not unplug the vacuum, place on floor flat with nozzle base facing up. Remove the 5 screws. Pull & lift the guard off. Remove the brushroller. Remove old belt and replace with new belt. Slide the new belt onto the motor shaft, the new belt should be on the area of the brushroller without bristles. With the new belt in place pull & slide the brushroll into the nozzle making sure that the endcaps are in proper alignment, rotate the brushroll to assure that the belt is aligned. Reattach nozzle guard using the 5 screws you set aside only after the tabs and slots on vacuum and nozzle guard are in place.

answer 2
It explains in the owners manual how to replace the belt. You have to turn the vacuum cleaner over, take out five screws to remove the plate covering the brushroll and belt. Be prepared to get frustrated because it's very difficult to tuck the belt back around the motorshaft.

answer 3
really easy. Remove the plate on the top of the blue base, near the button that says hardwood floors, so you can get to where the belt winds around a little metal finger piece. Slip the belt off and then remove the roller by lifting it straight out, which will release the belt completely. Replace new belt and reassemble

Pull up the user manual online. Just a tip - don't sprinkle your carpet with carpet freshener granules. After just 4 months this vacuum got clogged up and there was no suction. I tried taking it apart 4 times to get the white powder out, but it never worked right again. I had to by a another vacuum.

Hi! The handle on the Nano is not telescopic, just removable for use of your attachments. If you're looking for an upright with a telescoping wand, I'd recommend the Air: http://bit.ly/Y57O6T. You take a look at it right here on Walmart's website! Hope this helps!
