Question about Hoover Vacuums

1 Answer

Vacuum stopped while sweeping the floor

I have the Hoover windtunnel 2. Upright bagless sweeper. While I vacuuming it just stopped working. As if the electricity had gone off...which it did not. I cleaned out the tank and checked for any obstructions. Used a different outlet. The vacuum will not turn on. It is less than a year old.

    After reading Tony's solution I got the screwdriver out unhooked the inlet hose (by the beater bar). There was a clog inside. Had to push a butter knife inside to loosen it, then a longer thing (cat toy) straight thru to knock it out. Now my sweeper works again! Thank You Tony!!

It is either the switch or the motor buy a brand new switch to put on it and if that does not solve the problem then the motor is just trash but the switches go out on these kinds of vacuum cleaners all of the time so that is probably the problem but if not the vacuum is trash

SOURCE: Hoover Windtunnel shuts down after 15 minutes

Might be that its not exausting enough heat & stutting its self down..

Try cleaning all the filters & the hepa filter..
This will increase air flow & maybe fix the issue..

Hope this helps !!
rate me good ;o)

SOURCE: My 2month old hoover bagless stopped working completely!

I may have figured out a way to make this thing work. If you find that the problem is the flimsy, floppy piece of plastic that I mentioned above, I think that the thing to do is figure out a way to make the narrow sticking out fin-like section that activates the switch wider. I think what happens is that fin slips over to one side or another and then does flip the switch. What I just did is cut a hard rubber washer into two half circles (or approximate half circles) and attached those on each side of that fin. So now I have a nice wide switch activator. I attached the pieces with exterior mounting tape. I imagine that some sort of adhesive could be used too, as long as it is not something that would dissolve the plastic.

Vacuum will not **** up dirt from the floor. The hose works fine. There is also a burning rubber smell when I use it.


This sounds like your roller has stopped causing the belt (s) to burn. The problem is definitely in the foot of the vac. You will need to take the bottom plate off to investigate further.

While the windtunnel is upright the suction is awesome. When you lower it and engage the brushes is looses suction. It will not pickup anthing on the floor


check the brushroll if it spins freely, replace the belts 38528-034 and 38528-035. and make sure the tensioner for the V belt engages when you release the handle and pull the head back

Do not turn on again. You have an obstruction in the fan . You will need to remove the motor from the lower housing, dismantle the fan cover and remove the obstruction, possibly replace the fan as well.
The lower housing plate can be removed revealing a set of clamps around the motor hosusing which will in tun release the motor from the base of the vac.

Decreased hose suction with Windtunnel


There are very few things left to check. First verify that the filter is installed properly, in the dirt cup. second check to make sure the dirt cup lid is on and secure. Did you use water on the round dirt cup filter? if you have you will need to replace it. To verify this remove the round filter and re-install the dirt cup on the vac. do not vacuum the carpet, just turn it on to check for proper suction. and then turn it off.

Your problem has nothing to do with it in the upright position. once turned on you will always have suction, either to the floor or when hose is removed from foot for accessories.
