    I also have the same problem. I have taken it apart as much as I can and can not seem to locate a belt. Please help.

    The roller brush will not turn and the vacuum won't push forward. It's not picking anything up.

    I have Hoover Windtunnel model U8143-900 and the brushes won't turn. I thought they were caught with hair, but have tried to clean it all out and the brushes still don't turn. The reset button keeps coming up and the light on the base comes on after a few seconds of being turned on. I took bottom cover off but couldn't get to much of the brushes, and i couldn't get them to turn manually. Any idea how to take it apart further? Thanks

    I have the same problem. The hose works fun but the brushes won't turn and there is no suction under the vaccuum.



    Can a novice replace the brush rolls and/or the gear housing? Where can we bet instructions?



    Thanks!

    Mine has suction underneath but one roller bar is frozen - the other moves when I turn it by hand. "Reset" button keeps coming on. This is an awesome vac when it works. Hoping someone can help!

Either the brush rolls are bad, ends are bad, or the gear housing/motor asm. is bad and will have to be replaced. Hoover Wind tunnel V2 - ee84874.jpg

Mine was under warranty and they replaced the whole assembly for free. Apparently a quality and/or design problem.

It might be a slipping rubber belt, is the brush roller moving when you look underneath? If it's a self propelled machine there might be another slipping belt. Friction from fast rubbing rubber can smell like it is burning.

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:

Hoover wind tunnel upright self propelled. U6473-900. Brush does not work. Heard it was a 'brush controller' problem and can be fixed. Please tell me how.


Most likely the flat belt has stretched enough so as to not turn the pulley that in turn turns the brush roll using a V belt. Also there is a small idler wheel, if hook up, then it won't engage the V belt.
