Picked up OK but after a few gos failed to pick up, weird noise and smell of burning. Provided replacement, this also conked out after a couple of sessions. Belt broken, little slider fell off. Shoddy machine, enginer said belt incorrectly fitted and too much grease used in facory. He recommended buying a Miele. In addition customer "service" surly A sad experience of the product and the organization (read more)

I purchased a more expensive model because I thought it would be worth it. It was not! The machine picks up really well, although not to the edges as it claims. However it requires emptying two or three times when cleaning our small house. We are not particularly messy and we have no pets. The tools are very fragile and break easily especially if you try to use them! The machine is very unstable and will tip over damaging itself of furniture really easily. However we had learned to live with... (read more)

Initially I was happy with this cleaner. Got it for a good price from Debenhams and it has performed OK. Have to agree with other comments, does fall over easily as it is top heavy and does need constant emptying but picks up OK. Problem I have it that it has just literally broke in half. The bearing arrangement between the upright and base has collapsed, the belt won't stay on and the handle is completely loose in the base. Tried to repair but too far gone. Looks like basic deign fault to... (read more)

I bought this hoover TD4225 model because I have hairy dog. Found the Dyson worse than useless after a time. This one is light but so much so that it constantly falls over, the pet hairs collect around the cyclonic filter and block it so that the machine overheats and cuts out. If you remove the red cyclonic filter, the next filter blocks. It stopped working because the drive belt had come off its wheel as there is nothing to stop it sliding off the end. It has a very small capacity... (read more)

Hoovers upright bagless cleaners are the WORST I have come across.
Lets start with what it is built for, sucking up dust & dirt.
Upright it does this VERY badly & reluctantly on all surfaces, carpet & bare flooring. It doesn't do the edges. It has an extendable leg at the back that flaps about & has gouged my lino & also causes it to pole vault. 2 out of 10.
Using the hose & attachments; When you do this the machine is dragged backwards & constantly falls over. It also means that you run over... (read more)

This Hoover TD4225 has been a waste of money. Only bought it 2 months ago. Doesn't suck up anything. I am now using a dustpan and brush because it works better. (read more)

I had the engineer out twice as the motor kept going on our Hoover TD4225. The first engineer took over a week to arrive and when he did he didn't have the correct parts - this meant I had to wait another week for Hoover to send another engineer with the part.
Hoover has poor suction and they're also difficult to clean fully. (read more)

I told the engineer that the model was not acceptable, and that I wanted to change it to one that would not break down, overheat, and one that would pick up dust consistently. The engineer said there was nothing wrong with my Hoover TD4225 vacuum cleaner!
I wish I had read all the other reviews on Review Centre before wasting good money on this heap of rubbish. (read more)

I bought the Hoover TD4225 Dust Manager vacuum cleaner a year ago, and it has gone from bad to worse. I used to be able to do one room before the suction went, now there is never any suction. It is totally useless. Also, I thought if I got a new filter system this may help, so I contacted hoover, and it was £10, not too bad... they then wanted £10 postage!!
I have just ordered the Miele Cat and Dog, which is supposed to be one of the best. (read more)

Bought the Hoover TD4225 Dust Manager model because it was light to carry around and said it was quieter.
Found it very hard work to use, it did not pick up the dust quickly and you really had to work at it to get anything cleaned properly.
If it was switched to full power, it regularly cuts out because it overheated and then you had to wait to finish the cleaning. Also on full power the dust did not go into the dustbox and the inside was very dirty.
Using it on reduced power was not... (read more)

A problem we found with the Hoover TD4225 Dust Manager was that dust was not being collected in dust box. Had new modification dust box fitted after only a couple of months. Engineer out three times. Still no sign of a refund. (read more)
