    Hoover bagless Windtunnel Self Propelled. The self propel is not working. How do I fix?

  • ogie1 Nov 25, 2007

    I am having the same problem. It is also making a funky burning smell.

  • bdelaney2000 Nov 25, 2007

    All parts seem to be working but the self-propelled aspect seems to get "stuck" on the carpet and is hard to move. Belts, self-propell wheels, beater bar all spining. Works better with wheels in lowest position but still not like it used to. Any suggestions?

You can order the lever for the transmission on line for about $16.00. It comes as a cable and lever assembly. I just took the top cover off and replaced the lever without doing the cable. The reason ours broke is because we lifted the vacuum by the handle without the self propel bing turned off, this pulls on the actuator and breaks it.

Rdaussi: How did you remove the top cover. I hav the same problem with my Hoover. I picked it up without locking the self-propel switch to the off position. I have ordered the part, but can't figure how to remove the top cover. HELP.

Had the exact problem as bdelany2000, exact. Turned out to be the flat drive belt was stretched. It didn't appear to be the problem but once I got a new one installed, it worked like it had boosters on it.

In order to have suction you need air flow.Essentialy,a vacuum cleaner is trying to create a vacuum the whole time it's on.Just because the beater bar turns doesn't have anything to do with the suction.That is created inside the canister.You have an obstruction in the hose anywhere between the motor and the power brush.

Move the carpet height control switch to a higher position if the vacuum is difficult to push. If the setting is too low for the carpet being cleaned, the brushes press against the floor preventing the vacuum from moving easily.Set to a medium-high height setting then check.Slide the "Self-Propel" button to the "ON" position if the cleaner does not self-propel. -----------
The self-propel feature operates only when the cleaner switch and the self propel button are both ON. ---------- Try this settings and check.This should help.Thanks.Helpmech.

Self propelled feature does not work. I replaced


There is a cable from the handle down to the transmission on this machine that breaks all the time or the cable is mounted to a plastic piece that is broken. That will need to be replaced.

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.

Self Propel wheels not enough power to move machine over carpet.


Sounds like the transmission might need an overhaul. Take it to a local vacuum repair shop and have them look at the transmission.

No suction on Windtunnel 6630-900. All belts work, brush turns, it just won't pick up anything.

Hoover Bagless Windtunnel - Self Propel feature not working


I have the same problem with ours. If you lift the vacuum by the handle it breaks the lever on the transmission. You can find a replacement cable and lever on line for about $16.00 it is somewhat involved to repair but can be done by someone with mechanical ability. You can try and find a repair shop but be careful, they sometimes tell you the part is not available and try to sell you something else. I think they should be able to do the job for aprox. $80.00, but they may want more. I did it myself plus the height adj. knob for $24.00

Kenmore direct drive will no longer self-propell


There may also be a reset button. If the brushes get stuck the unit can shut off power to the brushes to keep a total melt down from occurring. The reset button should return power in these types of vacuums.
