Re: hoover wind tunnel + cyclonic
Im pretty sure there are a series of screws that hold it together ( look down into the bottom of it ) once those are all out then it should just pull apart. be careful if it fights you than double check for any other screws you might have missed, they don't make them easy to find.

Well if the vac motor is good then its either a clog or a leak ,if you say no clog then it has to be a leak. Make it blow out and see where the air is coming out or try and find it while it is running with a piece of typing paper loosly around the hose and piping. Seals at the connection areas go bad so check them as well.
The correct belt is # 38528034 ( package # 40201200 ) This belt may seem loose when it is installed, because there is an "idler bearing" that pushes down on it when the handle is released and dropped back.
If the motor stopped running, it most likely did because it was not being cooled, becuause something was stopping up the air flow. If you have cleaned the secondary filter out and it still stops while running, then remove the exhaust filter cartridge and try it then. If it does not stop running now, then the problem is the previous models like this had a foam filter as the exhaust filter, not a heppa cartridge filter. You will not hurt the machine by running it without the heppa cartridge. Cut a foam filter to fit to replace it. I do not think Hoover knows this yet.
I have a customer working on this problem today (Sept 2010) I have repaired machines for 30 years. This filter is meant to just catch the tiny particles from getting back into the air. However, it worked fine on the previous machines with the foam filter here instead of this Heppa cartridge.
Have you cleaned the foam filter? located above the dirt tank after you remove it. the manual can be downloaded from the web site at www.hoover.com ; sounds like an obstruction in the hose or elbow on the back of the unit. the hose can be cleared with a broom hadle when you take the hose completely off the vac.
Definitely not. Do not use water or any liquids to clean it. Te normal use life is 2-3 years keeping it maintained. You can clean it dry with the dust brush from your vac attachments. place in a plastic bag and tap it some folks even us an air compressor to blow out the impacted dirt. you will only want to use the Hoover brand, other generic brands dont fit as well.
Check the inlet down by the brush roll to make sure it isn't clogged. If not and the hose isn't clogged, then probably the thermo protector (part #28382093) maybe bad. It is mounted near the motor. Could be motor Part #43576188. But I would suspect a clog in the inlet or hose, or the thermo protector has gone bad.
