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