You probably have a broken belt, or the belt came off. The Self Propel Windtunnel has an issue with the pulley that tightens the V-belt in place getting stuck and needs to be taken apart and released, but most likely its just the belt. They should be replaced every 6 months or so, and the part number is usually on the serial tag of the machine.

As I was vacuuming my vacuum cleaner stopped working


Hi, it's Allie from Crucial Vacuum!

Your Hoover Windtunnel may have stopped working for several reasons. First, make sure that your unit is properly plugged into an electrical outlet and make sure the electrical outlet is working correctly. Vacuum units, and other appliances, protect themselves from sudden electrical charges, ups and downs. Make sure the electrical fuse and breaker are on, if not reset breaker.

Some units may heat up and will automatically shut themselves down to prevent fires. Allow your unit to cool down for 30 minutes while the thermal protector is automatically reset. Overheating, may have been caused by a clogged hose, dirty filters, full bags or a roller brush that is not running properly. All these situations compromise the unit's air flow and make the unit work harder, making it to heat up.

To avoid these situations and to keep your unit running at it's maximum capacity, make sure to change filters regularly (recommended every 3-6 months), clean your brush roll from any tangled hair strands or debris monthly (roller brushes are recommended to be replaced at least yearly), and replace belts every 6 months.

You can purchase direct your replacement belts, bags, roller brush and filters from Crucial Vacuum with free shipping and an exclusive 10% coupon for Fixya.com readers, use code: FIXYA10

Brush won't spin on hoover wind tunnel bag less upright when on carpet, belts are fine


The belts may look fine but may be stretched and worn. Replace them. Make sure brush spins free. Idler pulley should tighten belt tension when handle is released

Brush on vacuum stop spining (HOOVER U-5753-960) Thank You


A worn out carbon brushes of vacuum will cause that motor spinning stop. Because brush no longer capable of pushing a stator or rotor hence electromagnet windings motor will not meet each other.
Have a brush replacement be customize in a nearby machine shop or find brush replacement on hardware store.
Look also for the possibility of loose wiring of the vacuum, check it also.
Thanks for asking.

I cant get my hoover vaccum brush to spin


First be sure the switch/circuit breaker on top of the nozzle is on. The brush also will not turn unless the handle is released and tilted back. This model of Hoover has a gear drive to turn the brushes. This was VERY prone to problems, and Hoover discontinued making replacement parts for it several years ago.

Bought a new sweeper and brush ( beater bar ) does not turn. The large belt is fine and turns. The small thin belt is also fine but does not turn the brush. It is either the wrong belt or is there...


Jim, To put tension on the brush, tilt machine forward when upright, move carpet selector knob to carpet. then turn vac on. Brush will only spin when vac is tilted back to operate. brush stops when upright and on to use hand tools so the er is no danger to carpet or persons with moving roller.

Hoover windtunnel


would suggest the drive belt is stretched and thus is slipping when contact is made with the carpet.
