Question about Hoover S3639 WindTunnel Bagged Canister Vacuum
Have a self propelled Hoover Windtunnel. Part of this big plastic piece cracked so the hand release pedal slips allowing the whole handle to fall to the ground.......... very annoying. I bought a new main body and foot pedal but I'll be darned if I can figure how to get the main body off. I had it taken apart on the floor the other day but something still was holding it tight. Any help?:)

· 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

Hi, That is what was happening to my Windtunnel. Until I looked at the little round disk "plastic". there was a crack in it and this puts pressure onto that V belt to make the brush spin. I have a replacement idler arm assy unit which has to be replaced. I hope this helps Cindy G.

The flat belt should be changed if it has been longer than 9-12 months. Next I would remove the upper handle to inspect the top section of the control cable, sometimes it fray's and has a sponge feel (no positive control) to self propel. To set this adjustment, it is best to do withthe hood off of the lower section. I would also look at the cable jacket in the foot to make sure it is under the metal clamp. It must be under the clamp to work properly. To get it under the clamp loosen one hold down screw at the top and one in the back of the vacuum, remove clamp screws and put jacket into position and then secure all screws. Now set the adjustment, Install upper handle and set self propel to off. loosen cable from arm in foot with torx screw. manually move arm until the clutch is off both drive pads. This is a visual adjustment. then secure and reassemble vacuum.

It sounds like it is overheating because of a blocked flow of air that keeps the motor cool. Check for a blockage from the area of the
roller brush through the hose to where it goes into the bag.
