Hoover dual windtunnel model U8149-900 series Y 12.0

Do all hover windtunnels have a belt. Where does it go? The brush on the front stopped working and we don't have a book to see what is wrong. We have tried to find a belt if it broke and slipped off or where it went and we cannot.

This model has 4 brushes to replace. they are connected by gears
they have a bad habit of stripping so get all 4

Belt will not stay on hoover windtunnel s3765


The Hoover Windtunnel™ Self-Propelled models have two belts, a flat belt and the V-Belt. This V-Belt is the one that drives the Brush Roller. After about three months, most belts stretch out causing them to slip. This means the brushroll turns slower or not at all and the self-propelled becomes increasingly harder to push. It is recommended that both belts should be changed at the same time.

When you put the flat belt on, is the print on the outside of the belt? Is the brush correctly positioned?

Hoover WindTunnel Canister: Roller brush motor not turning


These motors have a fuse incorporated in the field winding and it sounds like that blew. These motors sometimes overheat at the front bearing and the bearing will melt into the plastic housing. This will cause the fuse to blow. It sounds like that's your problem. You can remove the motor by removing the three screws on the bottom of the powerhead and then check the front bearing for any bubbling or blistering in the plastic housing. The shaft of the motor should turn easily.
