I took off the dust canister and then the 2 Phillips screws on top of the rewinder. I was searching how to get at the rewinder so I took out the HEPA filter and holder. I then pressed down on the rewind leaver and it rewound. I am not sure why but maybe what I removed was putting some pressure on the rewind mechanism or I just had good luck.

SOURCE: repplacing power cord on Hoover Wind tunnel (not self propelled)

I am thinking that the cord goes in on the back, just below the handle. Remove the handle, then from the front, remove the tool holder(#8), then you can get to where the cord comes in and hooks up.

SOURCE: Hoover Wind Tunnel bagless- issue with turning on

Have you tried to plug the vaccuum in another outlet that is on another breaker? It could be the vaccuum tripped the breaker. Turn the breaker back on. The manual mentions the thermal protector could have been activated. If this happened it resets and your vac should run after 30 minutes. I have a Widepath Tempo and it has tripped the surge protector. If this is the problem try turning some things off that are also on that breaker/outlet, or unplug them when you use the vac.

Can you verify the model number? However, based on your posted description, it sounds like the flat belt is either broken or fell off. to access the belts turn it over and remove the bottom plate (4 screws). the Flat belt will connect to the motor shaft in the back and the large black pulley.

SOURCE: hoover s3639 vacuum...cord does not rewind

I had the same problem with my Hoover s3639. The cord rewinder started squeaking, and retracted less and less of the cord each time, until it finally stopped retracting the cord at all. Here is what I did. I hope it will work for you as well. Open the covered tool storage and remove the tools. You should see three screws. Unscrew the screws. Remove the cover. You should see the motor for the vacuum and the cord rewinder. Between the vacuum motor and the white wheel where the cord is, you should see two brass wheels that turn into each other in order to operate the cord rewinder. Spray a small amount WD-40 between the two brass wheels. This should solve your problem.

Hoover UH70120 WindTunnel TSeries problems with the cord. im a tech savy guy and have been trying to fix a cord after it was pulled to far out and now wont auto retract, but just cant find a way to pull...


You will probably have to replace the cord winding mechanism. I have never had any luck trying to repair one. Cord retracters are great when they work but it seems like they always go bad before too long. On many units you can't even replace the cord if you get a bad spot in it, you have to buy a new cord reel which can get expensive.

Hoover Windtunnel Tseries cord pulled out too


In the case of where you have decided to "fix" it yourself the best thing is to make small drawings of what goes where as you take things apart. Lay out a white towel and put all the parts on it in the order you removed them. To keep from loosing screws you can screw them back in their holes you took them out of, or lay them in order next to the part you took off. Sometimes there may be longer screws. On your drawings indicate where they go. You don't have to be an artist, just as long as you can understand what you've drawn. As far as the switch is concerned it's either a safety feature or there is a wire pulled part way out and is pushed or pulled back into place when you lean the handle back. Now, understand that there are flat metal "clock" springs that are wound up tight on the part the end is attached to. Whatever you do pay close attention to what is going on just as you begin to open the housing up that holds the cord. If the clock spring is attached to something that may come loose as you pull it apart, it's liable to come off of the winding mechanism and completely unwind suddenly. I've had this happen before. And you never know how many times to wind it up in order for it to be able to pull the cord back in the housing quickly like it did when it was working.

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:

Repplacing power cord on Hoover Wind tunnel (not self propelled)


Hi
This is HARD and you NEED electrical knowledge and IF NOT UP TO IT YOU COULD CAUSE PROBLEMS TO YOUR SELF AND OTHERS.
You do not say what the problem is with the cord.If is it damaged then it needs to be replaced with a new one.and then above applies.
Take Care as to what you do.
SAFETY FIRST---ALWAYS
Hope this helps
