Question about Hoover U6634-900 WindTunnel Bagless Upright Vacuum
I've taken the bottom panel off and looked for blockages, following instructions in the manual, cleaned the brush roll, emptied the dirt cup and can't find anything. The vacuum still has suction and picks up dirt, but something starts to smell after a few minutes of vacuuming. I moved the sensitivity switch from Hi to Reg, and no change. The green light used to come on. I know my carpets didn't suddenly become filthy over night, honest. What can I try next? I
The dirt sensor is a motion detector. After it gets dirty it will either stay red or stay green. You can have the vacuum serviced at your local vac shop and possibly get this fixed. Sometimes they are as good as new and sometimes they are not repairable. It will not effect anything else though.

Try cleaning out all the pathways you can get to. Trapped particles can mess up this indicator. Particularly check the extra mesh filter that is under the bag (there's a plastic grid that snaps over it to hold it into place). Clean that out and make sure the bag is securely in place.

The sensor may be bad, or it may be coated over with dirt. Re,ove the hose at the back of the vacuum, the head of the sensor is down inside that opening, reach in there and clean it off and see it that corrects the problem, if not replace the sensor.

Take the hose off at the back of the vac, should just turn then pull oull, look down inside the tube that the hose was connected to, there is a sensor there and if it is coated over with dirt, then it can't work, Clean it off and the try it, if it still stays on, then you have a bad sensor, and if this is less then a year old, you have a one year warranty on this. Take it to a warranty shop and take proof of purchase with you.

Turn switch to OFF position.
Press button and slide latch towards outside of cleaner. Rotate dirt cup toward back of cleaner.
While holding dirt cup, grasp filter frame and lift out filter. Empty dirt cup after every use. Dirt cup can be cleaned with a damp cloth. Allow to dry thoroughly.
Pull middle section of filter out of filter frame. To remove debris from filter, tap it on a hard surface or brush it with a soft brush.
Remove lint, strings, etc. from the brush roll located on the underneath side of the nozzle.
Replace the brush roll when the brushes do not touch the edge of a card as it is moved across the opening on the bottom of the nozzle.
Further disassembly of the cleaner is not recommended. Hope this helps!
