Question about Hoover Vacuums

Open Question

I have a PAWS Windtunnel T Series vaccuum and the roller is not turning

The roller with the brushed is not turning. It will turn when i push the vaccuum because the brushes catch the carpet, but the vaccuum isn't turning the brushes to lift the dirt.

SOURCE: Hoover WindTunnel Canister: Roller brush motor not turning

These motors have a fuse incorporated in the field winding and it sounds like that blew. These motors sometimes overheat at the front bearing and the bearing will melt into the plastic housing. This will cause the fuse to blow. It sounds like that's your problem. You can remove the motor by removing the three screws on the bottom of the powerhead and then check the front bearing for any bubbling or blistering in the plastic housing. The shaft of the motor should turn easily.

SOURCE: brush won't turn while sweeping

Does it smell like anythings burning if it's on for a while?

It could be that the belt is just stretched out and not keeping enough tension on the brush while its on the carpet. Once you tilt the vacuum up, there's no more friction, so it spins freely. I've had a few that did that.

SOURCE: brush roller on windtunnel won't spin

It sounds like you need to replace the actuator arm or the cable to it. Look for Hoover part 43143046 for a start. I've got a similar problem.

SOURCE: Carpet roller will not turn. Vacuum still sucks up dirt

It IS true that you can take the plastic cover off the top of the carpet head. But in addition to removing the two Phillips screws at the bottom, you have to manouver the wand release a bit. Loosen the screw and carefully pull the release back just as much as you need to, to remove the cover.

You will also need to pull manually release the four clips - two at the back and two on the sides - to pull the cover off.

However, I did all this and found that the plastic setting holding the roller canister in at one end had been burned out so that the roller didn't sit properly. Nothing I can do to fix it except order a replacement. The original problem was caused by getting carpet ends caught up in the roller. This caused the burning.

The roll brush will not turn when on floor. Too much pressure stops brush. Changed belts and still not working


Turn the belt inside out. This problem stems from a design flaw in the mechanism that turns the hoover from bare floor to carpet. After taking it apart I realized that the spring that pushes the belt tight (to make roller spin) is not any where near strong enough to keep the brush rolling. My solution was to turn the belt inside out (there by essentially shortening the belt and allowing enough pressure to be applied to the roller to keep it spinning. Horrible design flaw. I am an engineer and find this pathetic. Hope this helps someone.

Describe how to replace belt on hoover windtunnel bagless


If you turn the vacuum so the bottom is facing up you will see the base plate that covers the roller brush. There will be four screws (usually phillips head), remove the screws and the base plate will lift off. You now have access to the roller brush and belt. Lift the roller brush up and remove the old belt. Place one end of the new belt over the motor shaft and the other end over the roller brush and put the roller brush back in place. Now simply replace the base plate and you're done! This models requires Hoover belt # 38528033 (single) or Hoover belt #40201160 (2 pack). You can get this belt at www.vacbelts.com.

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.

Hoover U5468-900 WindTunnel Supreme suction is suddenly poor


The other possibility is there is a blockage in the foot. these models have dual channel air flow (windtunnel) and become blocked when not cleaned depending on use. under the roller there is a cavity that can be removed for cleaning. a hot motor can be caused by poor air flow.

Brush Roll belt won't engage on WindTunnel self-propelled


When you had the brush roll off, did the ends turn freely? If not then the brush won't turn and the belt will just slip. You would have to replace the brush roll if either of the ends are frozen. Other then that you would have to remove the top cover to see if there any broken parts, there is a spring loaded asm, it has a black wheel that will push the V belt when it is in the carpet setting and the handle is in the down position, it could be jammed so the roller is stuck.
