Hi, we have a very old hoover that has stopped working.

Customer Question


we have a very old hoover that has stopped working. I opened the top, motor half and found that 1 copper contact, dragging on the outer-ring of the electric motor has broken.

Is this little part available as a spare or is it simply writing the hoover off?

Many thanks in advance,

Welcome, my name is Rob and I will be helping you with your problem today. If anything isn't clear, please just ask me.

Can you tell me the model number please?
Can you also describe further the part, or maybe upload a picture?

Thank you for your reply. However, I have managed to fix the hoover with some copper-strip folded to the right shape.


Kind regards,
