    What is the model number of the vacuum, you can replace most of the parts, but need the number to look it up.

SOURCE: We have had three belts break on your hoover

sometimes when you buy belts from the walmart or target, they are not at the correct specification and they brake as soon as you turn on the machine. i would suggest that you buy these belts from the company.

Hi There,

Here's a step by step guide that will explain in detail how to remove the top cover on your Hoover. The repair was written for a different problem then one you're experiencing, but you can follow along step by step to see how you can remove the top cover.

If you haven't already purchased the actuator arm, here's a link for you to the part on Amazon
Hoover Windtunnel Self-Propelled Windtunnel Actuator Arm

Here's the repair guide:
Step 1. Make sure that the vacuum is unplugged. Turn the machine upside down so that the brushes are facing upwards. I find the easiest way to do this is to put the brushes on top of a counter top or work bench with the handle of the vacuum resting on the floor. Remove the four screws that hold the bottom plate in place. Remove the bottom plate, both belts and then the roller brush from the machine:

Step 2. There are 3 screws that hold the top brush cover in place that need to be removed. On the right side the screw is down below the transmission to the right. There's also a screw in the agitator tray, in the middle that needs to be removed. NOTE: This small screw in the agitator tray is only present on some models, you's may or may not have this little screw, but all models will have all other screws circled. I have circled both screws that need to be removed:

The screws on the left side that need to be removed are also circled. One screw holds the upper brush cover on, and the other two screws secure the hose in place. Remove all three screws as well as the transparent hose cover:

Step 3. After all of these screws have been removed, there are two clips that are the last things holding the top brush cover onto the vacuum. Use a flat head screwdriver to push these clips off on both the left and right sides. The right side clip is near the pulley that the flat belt2_bing.gif rides on, and the left side clip is next to the internal hose.

Step 4. Once both of these clips have been pushed so the unhook from the lower agitator housing, remove the top cover.

Once you have removed the top cover, here's a link to a guide that will show you how to replace the actuator arm itself:

take the vacuum head off the end of the tube , turn the machine and place your hand over the end of the tube
if it sucks your hand onto the tube , the machine is working as a vacuum machine
then check fro a blockage in the elbow section near the head
if there is no vacuum , junk it and get a new one

Tammy, no info re your location, so I''l try this.
Your Hoover hose is shot because it was made of rubber.There are new swivel handled, tangle proof lighter hoses made of vinyl which will last much longer and can be adapted to the old Hoover head by changing the upper steel tube.
Find a Hoover service center, outlet in the yellow pages and ask for the "NEW "style, gray``Plastiflex`` brand hose and upper adapter tube sold with new Hoovers at Costco and you will be all set. Then, when the head eventually dies, you can upgrade to a far better one , while still having the Hoover cannister, the hose and tools do not need to match the original tank.

Replacing a fraayed and twisted power cord on a Hoover windtunnel upright


ok so I took this vaccum apart completely except for the electrical and motor systems. It seems to me that without dismantling both of these systems on the vaccum you can't replace the power cord. And I wouldn't recommend taking them apart unless you know what you are doing since replacing the power cord seems to require cutting the old power cord and soldering the new one onto the old terminals. All in all its probably easier to get a new vaccum altogether.
