In general, it would be harsh to say anything too bad against the Hoover FH50150. It’s a very good carpet cleaner, but it does tend to suffer from issues like the turbine mechanism fault. This can be a nightmare as it costs a fair amount to buy and then has to be sent back, but not all models suffer from this problem, from what we can tell.

However, the overall quality of the hardware cannot be faulted. It’s a very strong carpet cleaner that you can easily move around the place, clean up after yourself and utilize a wide range of features.


Flexible, versatile, easy to work with and very lightweight despite being sturdy. This is one of the better mid-tier Hoover carpet cleaners, and makes a fine addition to any cleaning collection. While the main issues are cost and potential need for repairs, the ease of use and the general versatility that it offers more than makes up for that.
