I've gone through many vacuums over the years. No matter how expensive, how many attachments, or how great the promises on the box are, they inevitably fall apart, lose suction, and become useless. I've owned this vacuum for about 3 years and use it every other day on about 1,000 square feet of carpet. It's utilitarian, a bit on the loud side, and not the most modern looking vacuum out there, but its solid design, hardy components, and straightforward usage is a delight in a world filled with fussy gadgets with short lifespans. I did a lot of research before buying this vacuum, and other reviewers unanimously agree: This is the *best* value for a household vacuum out there. I anticipate I will have this vacuum for years to come, replacing parts from Hoover as necessary. I would recommend buying the cloth Hoover brand "Y" type bags. I bought a pack of generic brand "Y" bags recently, and they are much smaller and thinner. They fill up faster and do not filter dust as well. With my usage, I fill up the Hoover brand bags about every 3 months.

Initially this vaccum amazed. Now the base portion no longer gets pet hair, although the suction on the tools is amazing. Too bad the hose is too short to make that of any use either. I've cleaned both filters & the debris shield per the manual. I've also changed the bag. I have checked for blockages. I have no clue as to why the bottom portion no longer works. It used to try to suck the carpet from the pad! I'm very disappointed, I thought this would last much, much longer.

This Tempo sucks....

By TerPer

We've had this Tempo for about 8 months now and truthfully the suction isn't great at all. In fact, it's not sucking anything at this time

Comments about Hoover® Tempo Upright Vacuum (U5140900):

I owned this vacuum for 10 years. It's an adequate vacuum but technology has evolved so much since I bought it. It's heavy, noisy, doesn't swivel and the hose is a piece of garbage.

Good Vac For The Price

By nana34653

from New Port Richey, FL, United States

Comments about Hoover® Tempo Upright Vacuum (U5140900):

I just bought this vacuum one of many I have bought, returned & donated in the past year, however this one I will keep because I love it; it's not too heavy for me (I'm 76), it's ♥ bagged ♥ & it has good suction.. Con: I cannot figure out how to wrap the cord up around the back after finished vacuuming.. I watched a YouTube video & if that video is fact then wrapping the cord around the back of the vacuum when finished is really bad & not as it should be; who designed that.. Another Con: the hose for the attachments is really short IMO & to have to purchase one that is longer hmm not a positive quality message to consumers about the manufacturer..

Design flaw. Hoover forgot the flap!

By igettemy

from Pittsburgh, PA

Comments about Hoover® Tempo Upright Vacuum (U5140900):

There is no hose cover so when you detach the hose to use the attachments, there is no little flap to cover the hole, like my last model, so dirt comes out of the hole. I love this model and was seeking to replace my last one, so I know that the Tempo is supposed to have a little cover. You cannot use the attachment hose without it.

Second Time Purchase

By Joed

from NJ, United States

Comments about Hoover® Tempo Upright Vacuum (U5140900):

We had purchased this model a few years ago and it ran its course. We recently went to replace it and we tried another brand and returned it right away. We were so happy that this model is still available, so we went ahead and purchased it again. It works great!!!! Bags are easy to change. Every now and again the beater bar belt wears out and we've become experts at changing it. It has a powerful motor and works great on all floors and the attachments work great as well. Go Hoover!!!

Own two Hoover Upright Tempo Vacuums

By Tricky

from West Dover, Dover, VT, United States

Comments about Hoover® Tempo Upright Vacuum (U5140900):

Own two for our second home with Berber carpet and tile flooring. Purchased b/c of price point. Overall does best on carpet and satisfactory cleaning on tile/slate. Powerful and durable but almost unbearably noisy. Good choice for once a week use but not for every day. Heavy, noisy, attachment hose unwieldy and short but vacuum is inexpensive. Put your headphones on!

What happened to my Tempo?

By Nana1973

from Youngstown, OH, United States

Comments about Hoover® Tempo Upright Vacuum (U5140900):

This is my third Tempo that I have purchased over the years. Up to this point I have absolutely loved them! But where did my tempo go? This is not the same vacuum cleaner. The cord is not flexible it's extremely hard. It's a chore to try to wind it up and keep it in place. The hose that goes into the attachment comes out constantly which is beyond annoying. I am very disappointed. Could not recommend it to anyone.

only good for vacuming carpet

By kimsly

from Undisclosed

Comments about Hoover® Tempo Upright Vacuum (U5140900):

Just bought this vacuum yesterday, tried to use it today and already am disappointed. The cord is way to short, the hose wont stay locked when using the attachments and the hose itself is way to short and not flexible at all. Constantly tipping it over. Hoover dropped the ball on this one. Very cheaply made. Save your money!

Durable machine

By Mjpare

from Brattleboro, VT

Comments about Hoover® Tempo Upright Vacuum (U5140900):

This is my second one of these. I clean a large office building and have tried several vacuums. The Sears lost its wheels after a few short months, the Electrolux same thing. Then they bought the Widepath and it has endured the longest, by far, for a fraction of the price of the others. I change the brushes and belts occasionally and just keeps doing its job and doing very well.

Comments about Hoover® Tempo Upright Vacuum (U5140900):

The front cover keeps on falling off since I bought it. No recall available. It does vacuum well, but you need to keep picking up the front and re-attaching when vacuum is off.

GREAT SUCTION!

By Labecca

from Aberdeen, SD

Comments about Hoover® Tempo Upright Vacuum (U5140900):

This is my second tempo widepath. It is a great upright for small apartments. The onboard tools are well placed and more than adequate. The cord is just right for a one bedroom. I did a little experiment and discovered that absolutely NO dust comes out of the vents while vacuuming. The carpet is clean, the filters are washable, and the dirt and dust accumulating on the inside of the Hoover can be easily wiped and does not blow into the air. This is a very good vacuum for the price. I am disabled and vacuum the carpet twice a day due to my condition, as well as my furniture and bed, and the machine just lasts and lasts.

Long lasting

By Anonymous

Comments about Hoover® Tempo Upright Vacuum (U5140900):

I have had my hoover tempo for over 10 years now. I have a janitorial business and I got this vacuum for one of my businesses. The adjusting wheel underneath just broke the other day using it. Luckily I have ordered to new one for it. It has great suction for picking up. This vacuum has served me well and I love it.

Worst $90.00 I've Ever Spent

By Romeyn

from Liverpool, NY, United States

Comments about Hoover® Tempo Upright Vacuum (U5140900):

The front cracked the first time changing the vacuum bag and didn't work after that. I think I used it about 6 times within 4 months. I even researched it to see what was out there, but I learned a lesson. Don't throw away your money, too.

It doesn't get any better than the Tempo

By BryanL1969

from Toledo, OH, United States

Comments about Hoover® Tempo Upright Vacuum (U5140900):

I bought this 5 months ago and I love it. This is extremely lightweight, not over complicated, and it uses a bag!! The belt change is quick and easy, the wind-flow channels by the rollerbrush disassemble for cleaning. The vac has multiple height adjustments which is great for us because we have higher pile frieze carpeting and dogs. Being able to set the vac to a higher setting lifts the carpet pile up instead of it folding over like vacuums that do not have a height adjuster. I've found that having the adjuster removes more fur because it allows more airflow around the rollerbrush instead of the suction pulling the vac head down and burying it into the carpet like with non-adjustable vacuums. I have only one disappointment: after 5 months my roller brush or motor is making "moaning" sounds when it powers down. I just put a new belt on it a few weeks back then I started smelling metal a metal-on-metal odor. Now I'm getting a moaning. I cannot tell if it's a roller brush or a motor. Is this a warranty issue?

Same Great Machine !

By garyb

from Eau Claire, WI, United States

Comments about Hoover® Tempo Upright Vacuum (U5140900):

Bought this to replace my old hoover upright that is now 10 years old and still working. Tempo is a great value for the money, just like the older model but a bit more quiet. Hope it lasts as long as my old one. I kept it clean and replaced the bag often and had no problems whatsoever.

Always buy the Tempo!!

By Zeps

from PA, United States

Comments about Hoover® Tempo Upright Vacuum (U5140900):

I think I am on my 5th Hoover Tempo. 3 Dogs and 3Cats you sweep everyday. Plus when one vacuum is done I take the parts off just in case I need them. The bagged vacuums are better then the bag less.

Better than a Dyson!

By mpost

from Papillion, NE, United States

Comments about Hoover® Tempo Upright Vacuum (U5140900):

I've had this vacuum before and loved it! However, I got a dud this last time. Hoover made me take it to the repair shop 4 times after only having it for 7 months!!! What nonsense! However, they FINALLY replaced it with a new one. While it was in my local repair shop each time, they let me use their Dyson. I can honestly say, the Hoover Tempo was a MUCH better vacuum. I love how I can clean under my children's beds since it lays flat. Also, this is WAY lighter to lift and carry than a Dyson. The power in this thing is great! I have 5 (messy) children and a long haired cat.

Ok

By allie96

Comments about Hoover® Tempo Upright Vacuum (U5140900):

Its a fine vacuum if you live in a house with no kids, you don't shed etc... I spent more time cleaning hair and dust clogs out of the hose on this than i spent using it. It did a great job for a while but now two years later its just not working at all. Not meant for homes with kids or pets or for people who shed alot.
