Re: love to vacuum

Most vacuum enthusiasts/collectors I know are gay men so I feel the pain, lol. The women I know including my wife view a vacuum with about as much affection as a mop or a broom. It's just a chore that has to be done. She emphatically doesn't share my interest in vacuums or vacuuming. Good luck in your quest !
Re: Hoover bagged stops as soon as I tilt to start moving

Loose connection between the base and the upper body. Or possibly a wire is pulled tight as you tilt it back and looses contact due to misrouting. Was the machine repaired recently? Sometimes techs are sloppy and don't take the time to route wires correctly. Check the wiring between the lower and upper body.

I am thinking the hose unscrews from the housing. See what happens if you turn the hose counter clockwise.

The US Hoover branded vacuum you buy today is also sold as an Oreck, Royal or Dirt Devil. All they do is change the color and the name on the machine. Most of these are made in China and are achingly cheap. At least one Hoover commercial upright model comes out of the old Oreck plant alongside and identical Oreck branded machine. The original Hoover factories are all long ago closed. It is not the same Hoover from the days when it was family owned and headquartered in Ohio. When old man Hoover died the heirs didn't want to keep the business in the family and sold it. Maytag bought the US arm and Candy Group of Italy bought their European operations. When Whirlpool bought out Maytag they immediately sold Hoover to Hong Kong based TTI, apparently not wanting to get back into the business of making vacuums after having sold their former vacuum making business to Panasonic in 1995. Candy Group still makes Hoover branded products sold in the EU.

The Simplicity Verve is made in China.
