Product Details

Hoover Zen Whisper Canister Vacuum - SH40080

The new Hoover® Zen™ Whisper™ Multi-Cyclonic Canister gives you a quiet clean without sacrificing performance. Multi-Cyclonic Technology delivers powerful suction with low noise for a calmer clean, allowing homeowners to vacuum without disrupting other activities. At the touch of a button, the 21-foot cord automatically rewinds in seconds, while the 6.5-foot hose and extendable wand makes floor-to-ceiling cleaning a breeze. A motorized nozzle navigates easily around furniture. The primary filter is rinsable and reusable.* Second filter made with HEPA media traps 99.97% of dust and pollens down to 0.3 microns. The detachable telescopic wand easily adjusts and allows for detailed cleaning with a crevice tool and dusting/upholstery brush.

I bought this vacuum a week ago and have used it many times. It does not lose suction one bit! I may be old fashioned but I like the bagged vacuums. With this one all you have to do is remove the full bag and place a new clean one in. It also makes my cat and roommate happy since it does not make a loud noise. I'm very happy with it!

When my husband first purchased this vacuum I was in love. I clean on a daily basis due to 2 dogs that shed like crazy. After 2 months the entire brush head burned out. The brush head had no power whatsoever. It wasn't a big deal because I knew we had a warranty. We returned the broken one and got a new one. The same thing happened after 3 weeks with the new one! We returned the Zen Whisper for the second time. What do you know... the same thing happened again after only 2 weeks!!! No power to the brush head again!! And now there isn't a single store within 50 miles of us that sells the Zen Whisper. Unless we purchase another Zen Whisper our warranty is completely void! $250 DOWN THE DRAIN!!!I feel like I also need to mention the static this vacuum causes. Half of the hair I thought I was vacuuming up was really just clinging to the canister and underneath the brush head. ALSO!!! The second vacuum we received had 3 more separate attachments that the one we originally purchased didn't have! DO NOT BUY!!!

Junk

By 

from Byram Township, NJ, United States

Comments about Hoover Zen Whisper Canister Vacuum:

Bought a Wind Tunnel - the vacuum worked well when it wasn't broken. Eventually it couldn't be repaired. I still had a warranty, however Hoover decided to replace it with the Zen Whisper. I have had this vacuum for less than a year and the handle broke, the wheel fell off, the clip on the power nozzle broke off. The bristles are constantly tangled in hair and string. I will not buy a Hoover again.

Died on me

By 

from Winnipeg, MB, Canada

Comments about Hoover Zen Whisper Canister Vacuum:

We have central vac and that is what we primarily use in the home. We rarely used the Zen Whisper and when we did it was on hardwood floors......gave it to my son to use worked fine the first 10-15 times then it simply died. A cleaner should last more than 30 uses. We have cleaned every filter. It will not even make a hum.......simply will not turn on

Good vacuum until wand got stuck in the power nozzle

By 

from Vancouver, BC, Canada

Comments about Hoover Zen Whisper Canister Vacuum:

I had this vacuum gifted to me 2 years ago by my father and it's been a good vacuum cleaner until the Hoover Quick Disconnect Assembly (Part #38646097) broke and wouldn't release from the Hoover Power Nozzle (Part #90001377). I only started using the Power Nozzle about 5 months ago because I got bought a carpet 5x8 and the Power Nozzle is better at cleaning carpet. So in 5 months, the Quick Disconnect Assembly broke under minimal use... I took it to a local vacuum repair shop and unfortunately paid over $80 dollars just to repair the Quick Disconnect Assembly. If I were to purchase a new Quick Disconnect Assembly from online it would cost me $35.26+tax and I would have to over a week. I asked the repair shop if the mechanism would break again and the repair shop said they recommend that I leave the Power Nozzle attached to the Telescopic Wand so it doesn't break again. I then had buy an aftermarket wand to use for my other vacuuming needs. Overall I am quite disappointed in the quality of Hoover's product. The 1 year warranty is proof of the quality. My parents have an old Electrolux for over 15 years and they have never had any problems. If your Hoover vacuum breaks you're better off buying another one because it's not worth repairing it; or going with another brand. You get what you pay for I guess. Unless Hoover's customer service goes above and beyond, I think I will be recommending a different brand. William Henry Hoover is turning in his grave...

Big Disappointment

By 

from Coram, NY

Comments about Hoover Zen Whisper Canister Vacuum:

I've always admired Hoover for their quality. When I bought this vacuum I thought I was making a wise investment while swearing off any Shark products that proved to be cheaper but truly unreliable junk and really bad customer service. Sadly, although the low level of noise the vacuum makes it has been a big expensive disappointment from the beginning. I religiously, as painful and annoying as it was, I would clean out the power head of hair that immediately sticks aroung the sides of the brush that will jam it up. So my diligence of keeping it clean does not lend to the problem that the brush is now intermittently working and vacuuming is once again a frustrating pain the the rear....not counting the annoyance of cleaning the brush every single time I've vacuumed! I agree with many of the reviewers that the hose twists often and I find myself dancing with this contraption to keep the momentum going while untwisting. It's so very very disappointing how manufacturers are charging us poor schmucks so much money for junk. I guess I will have to rip out carpets and live with floors. I will not buy another vacuum. The oÃ+/-ly one left to try is Dyson and I won't bounce for that price to experience the same. Sorry Hoover, you've added your products into the great American rip off. You used to be good.....

I am a housekeeper on the beach

By 

from Panama city, Florida

Comments about Hoover Zen Whisper Canister Vacuum:

I clean vacation homes on the beach and had this one, or the previous 2 years ago. It takes all the sand , because it has no rotating brush, like the uprights. If you have hard floors and short in length carpets in your house, this one is the best. And I tried all kind of vacuum cleaners over 13 years now. I wished I had one in my house with all my doggy hair. Rotating brushes which come with the uprights, don't help with pet hair. Overall: Great Suction on sand, easy to handle, easy to lift up and Hoover is responding here, that I call great Customer Service.

Suction not adjustable

By 

from Aeatt

Comments about Hoover Zen Whisper Canister Vacuum:

Normally I most canister vacs you can adjust suction at the top of the wand, not so with this vac. I tried briefly using the power head with the beater bar going on an oriental carpet, I checked the contents of the bag less canister and along with dust and dirt I found about a tablespoon size bunch of wool from my oriental carpet, I only vacuumed about one square foot-too much suction.the other thing the power head is not adjustable which woul have been another way to adjust suction. So my advice is: if you already own this vacuum, use the power head with beater bar turned off. One last thing, the suction is so strong that it suctions to the floor a lot. Strong suction in a vacuum is no good if it is not adjustable.
