According to Hoover's web site the closest service center is MJB MAYTAG HOME APPL CENTER 418 BELTRAMI AVE NW
BEMIDJI MN 56601
218-751-2420 which appears to be over 100 miles from you. I have 3 Windtuunels and love them. They are relativing easy to repair. Most likely someone failed to place handle in the upright postion before sliding the carpet height. (My housekeepers hve done this numerous times.) If you or if you know someone that is handy, take the cover off and reassemble the slide switches (carpet height switch, moved out of place). For the on/off switch, disassemble the handle, order a new switch from Hoover's website, and replace it. The wires are easy to reattach and the switch simply snaps in. If by some chance you purchased the Windtunnel from Costco, they will take it back and refund you.

Hoover Wind Tunnel Bagless problem with carpet hight adjustment


Hi There Alec from VacuumSpot here.
Most of these machines don't actually change the height until the handle is lowered so even though you change the dial when it is an upright position it is not until you lower the handle that the height is actually selected. Assuming that you are aware of this and it is still not adjusting I would suspect you have a small arm or lever broken. It is very rare for a height selector to simply fall out of place.The job would take 5 minutes in my opinion so it is simple but a bit fiddly.

I've had the Hoover Windtunnel for a couple years now. Its starting to smell when you vacuum. Why and how do I fix it???


I was experiencing the same problem right after changing the belt for the first time, as my Hoover is just a few months old. I am assuming what you are smelling is burnt rubber, like your belt, right? Well, if you have changed your belt recently, make sure you are using the right one. If you're not using Hoover's authentic belts and you're buying it from Wal-Mart, make sure it's the correct one, otherwise it won't work right and/or it will give off a burnt rubber smell. One other thing you could try doing first, is raising the carpet height adjustment up a notch or two. If you have it too low and your beater-bar/brush roll has to work too hard, it will start to smell also.Good luck!

Height adjustment on Hoover Windtunnel u5755-900 no longer works


On this model it is only a single slide adjustment lever. have you trie to tilt the vac backwards (lifting the wieght off the front wheels) and then slide the adjustment lever?

If there is a mechanical issue with it. take the bottom plate and roller out, and then the 2 small screws which hold the cover on underneath. you should be able to see the problem from there

Hoover Windtunnel carpet level adjustment


The suction is so great that it sucks up your carpet, then nothing works. I get my children to stand on the corners/edges of the rug so that it stays perfectly flat on the floor while I vacuum. Or, you can turn off the brush roller (set it to "hard floor" setting). Or, tip the vacuum cleaner's front up slightly while vacuuming, to reduce suction.

Rollers are to low and tearing up carpet.


unfortunatly you cant adjust the height on that type of machine, and new carpet no matter how good or expensive can shed for up to a year, the best thing would be to buy a cheap carpet rake ( not a garden rake ) that would get up all that fluff.

Self-Propelled WindTunnel by Hoover U6445906


· Sometimes grabs the carpet for no reason.
· Comes back too fast when I push it back.

I would advise you to ALWAYS to FIRST UNPLUG YOUR VACUUM before beginning any service procedure.
Self-Propelled WindTunnel by Hoover U6445906 Without knowing the brand name or model number you may have the height adjustment to low and the vacuum will say “bite down” on the carpet of which will make the belt burn and might leave marks on the carpet – and if you have a self-propelled vacuum it does come back fast if you because you have a transmission just like a car and you have to control the speed of the vacuum or because it may have a weak belt the vacuum will pull back easier – I really would like to know the brand name and model number so that I could accurately give a better answer . Recommended belt change for flat belt(s) are 4 to 6 months for better cleaning and one a year for a geared belt – both can stretch and lose their cleaning function

Sounds like you have a bad brush roll(48414115), take it out and see the the ends turn freely or not, if not, then replace it. Also check the the slots that the brush roll sits in to make sure they haven't melted. I am assuming that the motor is running, if not, then it may have froze up.
