Question about Hoover U6437-900 / U6439-900 Windtunnel Bagged Upright Vacuum

2 Answers

Hoover 5470-900 no longer contacts carpet with beater brush

My Hoover WindTunnel vacuum no longer contacts the carpet with the beater brush and has very little suction for the carpet.
It works fine when I use it with the accessories.
I have replaced the beater bar and have taken apart the front plate pieces to make sure that there is nothing blocking airflow. While I have the front plate stuff removed, I checked for vacuum power at the point that the hose comes down and it is still very powerful.
No matter how low I set the height setting, the beater bar does not come in contact with the carpet.
It feels like I am dragging the unit across the floor without wheels, but nothing appears broken or unusual.
thanks for any help

Your floor adjustment spring is broken there is a plastic slider and clip if it is broken the height adj will not work you should get a new vacuum because this repair can cost as much as a new vac.also this is a common problem with the hoover brand I would get a sebo or an oreck they have a great warrentty and you will more than likly never buy a other vac.

The suction is quite poor, also definite burning smell after normal use. we only have about 3 years would it be the engine


I would check the drive belts for the beater brush and make sure the beater brush itself is free to move in the holders. Clean the beater brush of all debris and add a bit of WD40 on the two ends between the brush and the holders.
I do not charge for my advice. : )

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.

Beater bar


There may be a shutoff switch, located on the hood, that shuts off the agitator to permit bare floor cleaning. Return the switch to carpet mode.

Hoover U6476-910 - Very little suction from the bottom


If you haven't already, remove the beater bar. This is accomplished by unplugging the vacuum and turning it beater bar up. Remove the clips or screws that hold the plate on the beater bar and set aside. The beater bar sits in sockets, so carefully remove the bar, noting the correct position of the sockets. This will make reassembly much easier. Slip the beater bar out of the drive belt. Now, inspect the suction cavity that the beater bar would discharge into. Usually, things clog up here as there is a flex hose that catches things, creating a pluggage.
Hope this helps, --W/D--
