This guide addresses common problems and solutions for the Hoover Power Path Pro Advanced.

Power Path Pro will not run when the power switch is turned on.

Plug the unit in firmly into the power cord. If the cleaner is still unresponsive, try using a new outlet.

Check the fuse or breakers in your home. Use this guide to replace/reset the breaker in your home.

If all options are exhausted, take the cleaner to a service center. To find the nearest location, visit the Hoover website or call 1-800-944-9200.

Cleaner will pick up little to no dirt or water from the floor.

If the dirty water tank is full, a yellow float will rise to the top of the dirty water tank and automatically decrease the amount of suction in the cleaner. This will cause the noise on the motor to be noticeably higher-pitched. Visit page 8 of the Hoover owner's manual to view how to properly install, empty, and clean the dirty water tank.

Suction on the cleaner can be stopped or reduced due to a clogged air path. Use this guide to remove the hose from the cleaner and unclog the air path if it is not clear.

Water escapes from the dirty water tank or clean water solution tank and spills onto the floor.

Water can overflow from the dirty water tank if the cleaner if functioning when full or not properly installed. Visit page 8 of the Hoover owner's manual to view how to properly install, empty, and clean the dirty water tank.

Water can overflow from the clean water solution Tank if it is not properly installed. Visit page 7 of the Hoover owner's manual to view how to properly fill and install the clean water solution tank.

No water is released from the hose nozzle when the Clean Water Tank or Detergent Container is full.

Verify that the hose is properly connected to the hose connection.

If the hose does not spray when the cleaner is turned on, lower the hose down to the floor and hold the trigger for up to 1 minute.

If the two solutions above do not work, there could be a puncture on the hose that prevents proper function. A new hose will need to be bought. Use this guide to remove and replace the faulty hose.

The motor is emitting a high-pitched sound that was not present before.

If the dirty water tank is full, a yellow float will rise to the top of the dirty water tank and automatically decrease the amount of suction in the cleaner. This will put stress on the suction motor and cause the high-pitched noise. Visit page 8 of the Hoover owner's manual to view how to properly install, empty, and clean the dirty water tank.

A clogged air path can put stress on the suction motor, causing the high-pitched noise. To check the air path, use this guide to remove the hose from the cleaner and unclog the air path if it is not clear.

If the dirty water tank is empty and the air path is clear then the suction motor needs to be replaced. Use this guide to remove and replace the suction motor.

The brush rolls will not spin when the cleaner is turned on.

Large objects can get stuck on the nozzle of the cleaner. This causes a jam in the brush rolls. Use this guide to remove the brush rolls and get rid of any debris.

If the brush rolls are not jammed then the belt on the cleaner needs to be replaced. Use this guide to remove and replace the belt.
