Re: Problem with vacuum suction in upright position

Move the lever on the front of the machine to "carpet". It won't agitate on floor

My hoover wind tunnel just quit while vacuuming. It is dead??? Two years old used about every other week? Any suggestions?

Some Wind Tunnels by Hoover have a poor design in the switch on the handle. Sometimes the switch does not turn on all the way and will stop running. Other times you can't turn the unit off.

I replaced my belts on my premium hoover wind tunnel and the roller barely moves. Also, I keep getting a rubber burning smell. I'm confused weather if it's worth to have fixed or buy new.

More then likely whats going on with your roller is on each side of the roller is bearings and hair or other things build up and makes it really hard to rotate.Take the roller off the vacuum and check you may be able to clean and oil them.

My new Hoover Wind Tunnel Upright UH50000 will not turn off unless I unplug it.

First I would be sure the handle was properly installed. Remove the two screws holding the upper handle in place and tap it bacwards to remove it. Set the switch inside to the OFF position. Next set both buttons on the handle to the OFF position and re-install the upper handle. If the switch still does not turn the vacuum on and off, the switch will need replacement.

How do you change the Hoover wind tunnel belts?

If you turn the vacuum over there will be (4) screws that hold on the base cover for the roller brush. Remove the screws and the cover and you can get to the belt(s). You can get replacement belts here:

My wind tunnelhas no suction when using the beater brush. Something is stuck. Can I fix it?

If the hose has suction in the upright position, and the floor has no suction in the normal use position, check for obstruction in the dirt path from the agitator cavity, thru the short hose, into the lower handle.

No suction

I have found more vacuums on the way to the dump because they were full. Check. Is it full?
If not the air way is clogged.

Wind tunnel hoover

Do you have suction at the hose end, if you do then it may be clogged at the inlet by the brush roll. Is the filter cartridge clean? If it is clogged and air can't pass thru it, then you will have no or low suction. Might also check the belt to make sure it is turning.
