Does the 7 amps mean it has less power than a standard 12 amp cleaner?

Answers
answer 1
I'm sure that is true, but my experience using the Nano is it picks up just as well. I have a 12amp vacuum also, and the Nano is just as good. The head is narrower, maybe that concentrates the flow in a smaller area which retains the velocity. It probably won't last as long, but I don't think any vacuum does these days. For the price all I care is it cleans well, which it does.

I don't know what the amps have to do with the power of the suction, I did read somewhere that there's little to no relation, though. What I know is that I had a much more expensive vacuum before this one and they both work equally well.

The brush roller has a belt. The cyclonic action has to do with keeping the dirt going into the machine from packing together or clumping (keeps airflow in there)...so you get better suction and more efficient cleaning.

Amy... my best guess is that it refers to the power of the unit. I was very impressed with the power, ease and light weight of the unit when I used it for the first time. I had borrowed my sister's because my old vacuum had conked out.... when I used her Nano, her unit cleaned my carpets better then my old unit had done for months, and to empty it was just a matter of a push of a button. I was very impressed. I will purchasing my own Nano in a few days.

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.

Question

The description states that the cord is 20", but it is actually 20 feet.

It would be impossible to vacuum anything with a corded vacuum that had a 20 inch cord. The actual length of the vacuum cord is 20 feet. Think about it. 20 inches is less than two feet.

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.

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.

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.

Call the customer service number on the manual that came with the vacuum--they should be able to tell you how to change it. If you didn't get one or cant' find your manual just google "Hoover Customer service" and you should be able to find a #)

I bought the lightweight for hardwood floors, after a couple times the dust clung to the filter which could restrict the suction. I returned it and bought the cyclonic and all the dirt and dust is in the bottom of the collector and easy to dump.

I've only bought the Cyclonic so I don't know the differences. I can say the cyclonic is the most awesome appliance I've ever bought and I highly recommend it. I have a big house, thick carpet and a lot of foot traffic, and it sucks up every bit of dirt and dust. It is amazing.

answer 2
I believe amps doesn't necessarily correlate to suction power/cleaning quality. Amps is a measure of how much electricity/power is used by the unit...so although 12 amps uses more power, the 10 amps may clean just as well if not better than the 12 amps depending on how efficiently the cleaning unit is engineered.
