Question about Vacuums

1 Answer

I have a hoover windtunnel turbo power 8000 self propelled model u6660-900. I bought a agitator belt for it that says it's the correct one ( belt #38528-034) according to several websites. But for some reason the belt is too large. I thought it may have been the wrong one and got a second from another company and had the same problem. Both belts are too big and won't run my aggitator. Does anyone know of maybe another belt that would fit this model vacuum? Also is there a reason that this belt isn't fitting?

The belt is correct. You idler pulley is most likely hung up. Look half way between the brushroll and the drive pulley ( that's what the belt wraps around ) there is an idler pulley that puts pressure on the backside of the belt. They are prone to hanging up. A qualified vacuum repair shop can take care of this for you if you can't figure it out.

How to stop the main belt from comming off the motor shaft on a hoover modle u6634-900/windtunnel


Hello there! If you have replaced the belt and it is still slipping off, you may be not have the right belt for your vacuum. This unit takes a flat belt and a v-belt. Make sure you are replacing the belts with Genuine Hoover Parts. I have included the links below where you may go to order the belts specific to your cleaner.

Self Propel doesn't work on Hoover Wind Tunnel


Your self propel wire could be broken. Lean the vacuum back like you were using it. If you stand in front of the vacuum look down and to your left. When you move the selp propel button you should see a wire move. If not then it's broken.

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.

The Hoover WindTunnel self propelled is a machine that we see in our retail stores (Vacuums Unlimited) constantly. The benefit of having a supposed "self-propelled" machine wears of quickly after the numerous time you will need to take this machine in for repair.

It's unfortunate you've had to spend so much money already on repairing this machine. I know you've said you've already replace the belts and filters, but if you want you can check out a video we made on repairing the Hoover Windtunnel.

If you are looking for a reliable upright, at GoVacuum we'd recommend the Sebo X4 upright (http://www.govacuum.com/seauxseupvac.html). The machine is incredibly reliable and easy to maintain. Thus far, we haven't had one warranty repairs come through our doors. The machine itself has a lifelong warranty on the belt because the machine automatically shuts off the motor if an obstruction is detected, preventing any undue stress on the motor or belt.
