Question about Hoover Vacuums
Have a self propelled Hoover Windtunnel upright (approx 5yrs old). 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?:)

Installing belt on Hoover self propelled upright...

Need help installing belt on Hoover self propelled upright vacuum
I would advise you to ALWAYS to FIRST UNPLUG YOUR VACUUM before beginning any service procedure. Hoover Ultra U6430-900 Wind Tunnel Bagged Upright. The best way to install the belt on a Hoover to replace one or both of the belts @ the same time for the best cleaning. The average belt change is every 4 to 6 months for best results. There is a tool that looks like a screwdriver that has a right or left angle on the end that serves as a belt puller and to hook the belt(s) onto the brushroll 1st and then take your puller and then pull or stretch the belt onto the motor pulley. So if you need further assistance, please feel free to contact your local vacuum cleaner dealer in your area or in the yellow pages, or contact the factory phone number or website to further assist you with your questions.

You probably need the switch replaced. It's fairly simple to do youself, and it is a known problem with these vacuums.
You can order the switch from hoover for about $10

The carpet / floor switch is a mechanical assembly. the bottom cover needs to be removed to expose the screws for the hood cover to be removed. then the switch can be accessed for repair

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.
