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.

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.

Go back to the Older Model

By WalkersJanitorial1

from Davenport, IA, United States

Comments about Hoover® Tempo Upright Vacuum (U5140900):

Go back to the Older Model I own a Janitorial service and used to purchase Model # U5472900....wonderful vacuum...I have around 20 of these....Then they were discontinued and were replaced with this model.....it seems ok... works pretty well but the electrical cord is shorter and the hose used for the on board tools is shorter...also I do not like the way the hose is attached...every time I have to use a tool I have to twist the hose off the vacuum and that puts stress on the ONLY screw that holds the hose to the body of the vacuum...I have had older models that are designed the same way and they break constantly and I have a hose that dangles with no way of reattaching it...also the tools are not in a tidy place on top the vacuum like in Model # U5472900 ...bad design....go back to the older Model!!!!

Great Vacuum

By sandyhill143

Comments about Hoover® Tempo Upright Vacuum (U5140900):

We have had our Tempo for several years and it continues to perform beyond expectation. We have dogs that shed all the time and this vacuum has no problem picking up the hairs. It is probably the best one we've ever had after nearly 50 years of marriage.

Worst vacuum cleaner I have ever owned

By Luci

from Oregon, United States

Comments about Hoover® Tempo Upright Vacuum (U5140900):

This is the worst vacuum cleaner that I have ever had. The belt constantly breaks and has to be replaced. The bags do not fit properly. Not worth the money. After two years of frustration will be buying another brand.

bag blow outs

By Anonymous

from Undisclosed

Comments about Hoover® Tempo Upright Vacuum (U5140900):

Hi, My name is Anthony and this is my second review. I keep blowing out holes in the genuine hoover bags. This has become quite a problem as it can be expensive. I have gone through 3belts NOT due to wrong belts or jammed beater bar. Ive always used hoovers as it s the only brand that can withstand my 3 children. Im sort if on the fence about getting a different vac. I called cust service and they couldn't help me. I HAVE gone through 3pks of bags n 2pkfs belts. Help me please, im a single dad with little funds..Thankyou....Anthony Woods

    Please know that if you want a budget Vacuum there is no perfect one. However IMHO this one works very well. As a Baby boomer female :) my husband and I enjoy using this vacuum. It's not heavy and moves around carpet nicely. I can use it on tile not great but good enough. I read reviews and felt it was worth a try. Got the best deal at ACE Hardware. I had a great experience with ACE, I love our local store.

      Comments about Hoover® Tempo Upright Vacuum (U5140900):

      I bought one of these a couple of years ago for "dirty" jobs (basement, garage, car) so I could keep my more expensive Eureka Boss (a very good vac btw) for the nicer parts of my home. I used my Tempo every day, mostly to tidy up around my cats' litter boxes, so it got some fairly hard usage, but it performed well and reliably until something went wrong (belt broke maybe?) and I tossed it just because it had gotten so filthy (through no fault of its own.) Having spent $300 some years ago on a Hoover Wind Tunnel that died six months in, I'd say this was by far the better investment and in fact I'm going out to buy another one later today.

      the best sweeper i have had

      By Ricki

      from canton, oh

      Comments about Hoover® Tempo Upright Vacuum (U5140900):

      Our Tempo is over 11 years old and still running strong.  It has so much power even after all this time.  The only maintenance I have had to do is change the bags and the belts.  The beater bar has been replaced once.  We have had many sweepers but I keep going back to this Tempo.  Hoover, this is why we go to you now for everything carpet carewise.  DO NOT MESS WITH THIS SWEEPER OR QUIT MAKING IT.  I WILL MAKE SURE TO BUY IT AGAIN IF WE MANAGE TO KILL THIS ONE.

      horrible product; poor customer service

      By cas77

      from PA, United States

      Comments about Hoover® Tempo Upright Vacuum (U5140900):

      Cheap plastic poorly functioning vacuum. Hose too short, pops off, vacuum clogs with dirt. Not enough seal to call it hypoallergenic. Height adjustment results in almost no change from bare floors to high pile carpet, so vacuum is useless on my new carpeting. HUGE DESIGN PROBLEM. Hoover customer service said that, although I am physically handicapped, I have to haul this heavy thing to an authorized center (almost an hour away) to see if it can be "repaired" before they can do anything. I tried to tell the agent you can't repair a design flaw, but I was basically told 'too bad; this is how things must be done.'

      What a rip off

      By rose1

      from Stroudsburg PA

      Comments about Hoover® Tempo Upright Vacuum (U5140900):

      I bought this last week and used it for the first time today. I can't believe I traded in my T-Series for a piece of junk. No light, no shut off for the beater bar when on bare floors, the cord and hose are too short. The hose disconnects from the vacuum when I use the hand tools, and the upholstery tool kept falling off. They even moved the on/off switch so I have to use two hands to turn it off or on. My biggest problem is it blows the pet hair around before I can vacuum it up.My T-Series had the same problem, but the light made it easier to find.

      Inexpensive vaccum that works well carpeting

      By tempoclean

      from Ohio, United States

      Comments about Hoover® Tempo Upright Vacuum (U5140900):

      This inexpensive vacuum works well on carpeting. However, the shorter attachment hose and cord make it less versatile. Also, the manual carpet height adjustment switch is not as effective as I would have liked.

      IMPROVED CUSTOMER SERVICE

      By HAMMAN

      from East Petersburg, PA, United States

      Comments about Hoover® Tempo Upright Vacuum (U5140900):

      This is my 3d or 4th review. After my last one, me. John Hitch notified me that they had overlooked my reviews. Via email he said they would replace the hose with another type-which was currently out of stock, but would be forwarded to me ASAP. On August 7th I received the new hose. It is a different material and is 6' long as advertised. The bayonet end fits into the unit much better. The longer, more flexible hose makes if much easier to do furniture. Although it is a budget unit, I would recommend this cleaner to a friend with reservations.

      Flimsy construction

      By fwilliams

      from Lake Geneva, WI, United States

      Comments about Hoover® Tempo Upright Vacuum (U5140900):

      We have had ours for about six months. One of the wheels fell off within a few months (it can be put on again, but falls off again). After about four months, the lever for changing the height (for carpet, tile, etc) no longer connects to anything. A previous model had broken plastic parts for holding the cord. The vacuum suction is good, but the product is not satisfactory. Wheels should not fall off, plastic parts should not break easily. We treat things with care -- Hoover has cut too many corners on this product. I would not buy it again.

      Still not satisfied

      By HAMMAN

      from East Petersburg, PA, United States

      Comments about Hoover® Tempo Upright Vacuum (U5140900):

      This is my third review. I thought I may have been a bit hasty on my other 2-not so. I just finished cleaning our family room, which has furniture. The hose keeps coming loose from the unit. I guess I will have to glue it. The hose is so short that I cannot reach many areas of the furniture (sofa, chair, etc.). I tried vacuuming the window sills, and cannot reach them without lifting the unit, and even then I can't reach all the areas. Evidently Hoover does not check the posts, as I have not received any comments from them. I guess they don't care about the quality of their produce and how it effects their reputation!!

      Hoover Happy Over Three Generations Until Now

      By Emeritus

      from West Orange, NJ 07052, United States

      Comments about Hoover® Tempo Upright Vacuum (U5140900):

      Loyal Hoover consumer, the only vacuum brand I've owned and recommended. That is, until this one. Whether its design flaw, manufacturing process or material used but I trusted Hoover because of reputation and past experiences for quality workmanship. The removable cover doesn't hug or sit against the rubber molding giving a sealed fit. Material or design? I no expert but Hoover is or was until the suit in charge gave the okay. Why do you buy a vacuum? The material (s) or design prevented doing what I had expected from past Hoover experience(s) and quality. The bottom line is you get what you pay floor. I got it, I get it. So next time its a case of Hoover wary.

      Very cheap design

      By abby54

      from Undisclosed

      Comments about Hoover® Tempo Upright Vacuum (U5140900):

      Had this vacuum for a few months not used that much until recently. The main handle is hard brittle plastic and broke off. Its also hard to press on pedal to make it move which is located on floor portion. These products are cheaply made to stay in competition with others. The main handle should never break off when purchased so recently. Others that commented were brought maybe years ago when the design was better. I also have Eureka, Sharp is very good and my favorite is still Oreck from the Oreck store not in a second store like Walmart or Target. Secondary stores seem to be the generic version. When you buy from a Oreck dealer and the sales person is good he/she will recommend the best one for your style of living.

      I love this light weight vac.  It is 100 times better than my Kirby.  I've owned both for 10 years.  I originally bought the Hoover to keep upstairs and to come down the stairs with ease.  It is so nice and light and the suction is great.  Does the job for me.  We are now in a condo (no upstairs) and I'm loving my Hoover Wide Path.  I also love love love the onboard tools.  So easy to use and so portable.  Can't say enough about this wonderful vac

      good effective cleaning, a bit bulky

      By thehousecat

      from USA

      Comments about Hoover® Tempo Upright Vacuum (U5140900):

      *** for those having to change belts really often***--- be careful where you buy the belt and make sure you get the exact right one. If you buy on Amazon or other such sites, you really have to make sure you are getting a genuine Hoover belt. They may even sell you a fake that doesn't fit it. Otherwise the fakes/ substitutes are just not same quality as the genuine. This may be happening to some on here who experience too many belts breaking. Make sure it is the right part, genuine Hoover in the real Hoover packaging, unopened, and correct part # imprinted on the belt. Read your manual or the one online on this site to see what part number is correct for your specific machine. I would recommend this vac to someone with large carpeted rooms and no clutter or stuff to vacuum around in intricate tight spaces. i personally shouldn't have gotten a widepath. i need something for tighter spaces, and stairs. It isn't really easy at all to use for stair cleaning. But,that said, as with other Hoovers i've had over the decades, it works well and is simple to change things like a belt or bag. compared to say, eureka. And i insist on a bagged model- it contains the dust better, no open container, the less exposure to dust when emptying, the better. So far i have had this Tempo for about 5 years, and only just now have to change the belt, or maybe once previously. My other Hoover vacs usually lasted me around 10+ years before they were too worn out to keep. I tried out 2 other brands which drove me nuts, and came back to good old dependable and easy to maintain Hoover.

      Consumer Reports Best Buy and I agree

      By Amruero

      from San Francisco, CA, United States

      Comments about Hoover® Tempo Upright Vacuum (U5140900):

      4 years ago I bought this vacuum after reading Comsumer Reports. They (Consumer Reports) had listed the Tempo as one of their Best buys, in terms of performance and price. I stand by Consumer Reports and their review. In 4 years this vacuum has never lost suction or reliability. My only complaint is that our dog chewed the detail hose attachment that I use the most and I cannot find a way to replace it.

            I never took this vacuum out of the store. I ordered it for the brushed edge cleaning & headlight like described, but this vacuum had neither. It is just a base model. I ended up buying the Anniversary Model of this vacuum and love, love, love it!!! Probably the best vacuum I've ever owned! It has unbelievable suction all-around and a self propelled option as well as a "mini vacuum" hand tool. Cant go wrong with the Tempo Anniversary Edition.

              Comments about Hoover® Tempo Upright Vacuum (U5140900):

              This is a second review. I checked the published specifications on this unit on this website. The Specs call for a 25' cord and a 6' hose. I measured both and have a 24' cord and a 3' hose. Even extended, the hose is barely 3'-6". someone could complain about 1/2" on a Subway sub, I think the lack of meeting the published specifications could be noted. Now that I have had more use to evaluate this unit, I stand by my original review.

              The hose kept on ripping and getting holes, the handle keep breaking off, and the tools would not stay attached. I had to throw it out, cause I was on my 4th hose, and I couldn't spend another dime on this machine. Not worth it.
