I bought two of these, one for upstairs and one for downstairs. After only 3 months the one upstairs stopped working (roller). I was sent a replacement only to have that one break as well. The one downstairs is now broken. I refuse to get this vacuum again, I am working with customer service for a full refund!!

Comment from Kenya - 2/6/2017

Hi ochoalejandra! Oh no, that sure doesn’t sound like Hoover quality. Your Air Steerable should be holding up better than that with normal use. The good news is this model carries a 2 yr warranty against manufacturing defects. We recommend bringing it in for service.

Looked at reviews before purchasing and vacuum had all the features I wanted. Shortly after purchasing the dirt canister does not fully empty when you push release button, you have to reach in and pull dirt out. Vacuum started making a popping sound like a car back firing and will not pick up. I've had more problems with this vacuum in the year that I've had it than any other vacuum I've ever had.

Comment from Karissa - 1/31/2017

Hi Kel0167! Your Air Steerable should not make this sound during use. We want to help. We will be reaching out to you privately for further assistance in this matter. We look forward to hearing from you!

Not a good vacuum!

Not well engineered, it constantly falls over, hose and power cord are way to short, I have stopped using the brush head all together because it gets tangled up with my wife's hair and must be disassembled to clean. Suction is good, but the overall package really sucks.

I just purchase this last night and it is the ideal combination of things I love in a vacuum. It is so maneuverable and lightweight and I can carry it upstairs without things falling off or the brush roll base releasing from lock position. Has great suction, it's not loud and totally easy peasy to clean! I really appreciate the parts that you can dismantle to get to the dirt cup and can get to all of it to clean!!! It's also an ideal size for tucking away in the closet. It has a super long cord that doesn't twist up and the suction hose stays put when not in use. I also love that it doesn't mark up the floor boards like my old vacuum. It's powerful and perfect! The price was right on and I couldn't be happier! So glad I shopped around.

Destroyed our texture pile carpet

This vacuum pulls dirt out of the carpet like no other. Unfortunately, it sucks up THE CARPET along with the dirt. At first I thought the SUPER suction was finding dirt our dyson had been missing since we bought the carpet ONLY 4 years ago. But over the four months since we bought the vacuum we noticed the carpet being pulled up in some areas and in other areas it appeared as if someone was shredding the fibers with a fine comb. The reality is the powerful suction and the lack of a carpet height adjustment mechanism, the UH72400 has destroyed our carpet.

Comment from Kenya - 1/16/2017

Hi! Oh no, that doesn’t sound too good. The Air Steerable should work fine on carpets. If you have a special type of carpet or rugs, we suggest inquiring with the manufacturer to be sure you can use this unit on them. Please let us know if you still need us!

A Vacuum that handles like a "Go Kart"

Customer review by Mr C

This was a Black Friday purchase from Home Depot and I must say this was an excellent buy! I was a bit apprehensive, but after first use I have to say that I’m totally impressed with the build, quality, performance and the “Go Kart” type handling of this vacuum. I was also pleased with sound level, not loud nor a major disturbance of noise throughout the home when in use, in addition the disposal of capture dirt is very easy and a good design. I gave this vacuum a 5 Star rating however there is one area I feel could and should be improved upon. A 6th star could be had with an integrated LED Head Lamp, for vacuuming in dimly lit areas of your home. I started using this vacuum last night, and I kept saying to myself how nice it would have been to have a built in LED lamp for areas that are not well lit. I’m sure that engineers at Hoover can incorporate in upcoming versions, which would make this unit close to perfect, until I come up with another suggestion from continued use.

Best vacuum I've EVER had!

I bought this vacuum because my old college vacuum died. I have to say I've tried other vacuums and I think this one is just as good as the super expensive Dyson vacuums. I've actually been able to use the expensive Dyson on my carpets. The Hoover vacuum got up just as much out of the carpet as the Dyson. So happy with my purchase!!

Terrible household vacuum

Customer review by Frank d

1.0 stars 1/5/2017 by Frank d
by Frank d

It has great suction which is an issue without height adjustment. You cannot use this vacuum on area rugs, runners, or a carpet that is not glued to the floor. It pulls the carpet up and jams the spinning brush. The hose is also a terrible design. It is not flexible and does not extend easily cause the vacuum to topple over. It is a nice idea but terribly designed and obviously not tested. This is the ultimate failure in vacuums. I am very disappointed in Hoover because of this unit and that they have not contacted me despite my numerous attempts to contact them.

Comment from Kenya - 1/9/2017

Hi Frank d! We appreciate your honest review. The Air Steerable does not have a way to manually adjust the height. It sounds like a vacuum with a height adjustment option will better fit your home needs. We recommend the WindTunnel MAX. See it here: We hope this helps!

I bought this 2-weeks ago,vacuum shutting off and I can smell something burning. I think I made a mistake!!

Comment from Kenya - 1/16/2017

Hi there! Your Air Steerable has a thermal protector that shuts the vacuum down if it gets overheated. Overheating is caused by a clog. Take a look at this quick video for locating and clearing clogs: Complete these steps and your Hoover should run like new. We hope this helps!

Let Down

Customer review by devindett

I was so excited about this vacuum... But was let down. It makes a loud obnoxious noise when I pull it back and forward. Also, the brush on the handheld part does not stay in place when using it (See photo)

Comment from Karissa - 1/14/2017

Hi devindett! Your Air Steerable should hold up better than this. We want to help. Please remove the bottom plate and brushroll. Ensure the brushroll is completely clear of all hair/debris including the end caps. Also check that the belt is intact as well. As for the 2-in-1 tool, please pull the brush all the way up until you feel it lock into place. If further assistance is needed feel free to reach out to us via Facebook or Tweet us @HooverUSA. We’re here for you!

Just bought this vacuum and it does clean the dirt up! It moves easily with the flexible handle. Sometimes fights me when I pull it backwards. My only complaint is it is noisy, especially in the carpet mode.

Burning up

Customer review by TaylorchattTN

I bought the hoover air less than a year ago, it started burning up and smelling like burnt rubber. The motor slows and I've only used it a few times.. I've cleaned out the whole vacuum and it still does this. What is this about? If I didn't have these problems I would have recommended this vacuum to others. I have NOT received a replacement therefore I'm not a satisfied customer.

Comment from Kenya - 1/4/2017

Hi TaylorchattTN! That shouldn’t be happening. We want to help. This sounds like something we need to get our hands on. The good news is the Air Steerable carries a 5 year warranty against manufacturing defects. To locate authorized Hoover dealers please visit: Let us know if you still need us!

Pros and Cons of the Hoover Air Steerable

Customer review by Chris58

3.0 stars 12/24/2016 by Chris58
by Chris58

I wanted a small yet powerful vacuum to use for our second floor without spending a small fortune. I wanted to stay within a price range of one hundred dollars, give or take with certain features I desired. After use of this vacuum, I'm listing a few pros and a few cons. The pros first, the cleaner has a HEPA filter which was a plus not wanting small dust particles circulating back into the air. This vacuum also has a swivel head which is a fantastic feature and it lays low for vacuuming under beds or coffee tables. The vacuum is no slouch when it comes to suction, as Elf would say, It's very sucky. This feature can however be both a pro and a con. The cons, the suction is so powerful that it is difficult to roll over thicker carpet, scatter rugs and linoleum flooring and offers no height adjustment. Just beware, It takes some muscle power to roll back and forth on these types of flooring. The attachments are nothing to write home about, it comes with a crevice tool and a tiny brush that is fit for a child's play vacuum. It also doesn't have a stair attachment so you must hold the vacuum in your arms so that it lays flat for you to work the stairs. In conclusion, this small vacuum packs a powerful suction with nice swivel action but requires a little bit of a workout making it a little more of a chore than expected. This vacuum has some design flaws given its powerful suction. It either needs larger rear wheels a height adjuster or both and it would be a great value.

My wife and I were in the market for a new vacuum, due to our old one (Hoover of course) was ten years old. I was interested in the Hoover-air after seeing it on T.V.  I then checked it out on the internet and read all the pro's and con's people said about it and went out and bought one yesterday.  I vacuumed the whole house which consist of hardwood floors, carpet and tile and all I can say is WOW!  I never thought I would be this excited about a vacuum.  The light weight, powerful suction and the way it maneuvers around furniture, this vacuum is AMAZING!  I actually enjoyed vacuuming the house and our carpet looks brand new.  The price of the vacuum was great also.  I normally don't write reviews, but after using this vacuum for the first time I had to write and tell everyone how great this vacuum is.  If your in the market for a new vacuum and can't decide which one to buy, the wait is over.  Buy the Hoover-Air Steerable and you wont be disappointed.

Lightweight but powerful

I bought this today and tried it out as soon as I assembled it. Assembly was simple, and vacuuming was so much easier. I love the lighter weight and maneuverability. My back doesn't hurt!  I got an amazing amount of dirt up. I thought my old vacuum was doing a decent job but this thing is powerful.  I had to empty the canister twice in doing just four rooms, it does have a much smaller canister than my old Fantom. However, it is easy to empty, just hold it over the garage trash and press the button. The lid swings away and the dirt drops out. Snap it back onto the vac and away you go. I thought I was just imagining that the living room carpet seemed cleaner, expecting great things out of a new vac and all, but my husband walked in and immediately noticed the carpet looks cleaner.  I used the crevice tool just to try it out, seems to be fine. My only wish is that it would be a bit taller. We are tall folks, and we're always on the lookout for products comfortable for us.  Now just hoping it lasts a long, long time!
