Question about Hoover S3639 WindTunnel Bagged Canister Vacuum
After a hard workout (ranch house with dog cleanup) the machine has turned itself off only to restart again after it has cooled down. The bag full indicator does not work so bag is not usually changed in a timely manner. The motor runs now, but suction is so weak there is no pickup function.
Machine was dismantled and cleaned out. Filters were cleaned and reinserted. After reassembly the motor runs energetically but suction is still weak. Exhaust exits through the top (at lid closure) and side vent. There is no blockage in the hose. I removed the motor and used a shop vac at the front to remove any debris but did not open it up.
I once solved this problem by cleaning the filters but this time there was no success with this procedure.
Can this vacuum ever work again?
If the Motor is not providing enough power it could be an issue with the motor winding. I think you should take it to a repair shop
