It probably is not broken. It only operates when you recline the handle into the vacuuming position. At that time it goes to whatever setting you have it set on. When it is in the full upright position, it will be in the highest setting no matter where the nob is set.

SOURCE: height adjustment on Hoover Windtunnel u5755-900 no longer works

On this model it is only a single slide adjustment lever. have you trie to tilt the vac backwards (lifting the wieght off the front wheels) and then slide the adjustment lever?

If there is a mechanical issue with it. take the bottom plate and roller out, and then the 2 small screws which hold the cover on underneath. you should be able to see the problem from there

SOURCE: How do you put a Hoover runabout belt on vacuum

I found this on another site and it worked for me. RonL

Looking at the brush, remove the two screws from the black plate holding the brush. There are two clips that holds this plate once you remove the screws. This should be easy to remove with a flat type screw driver. Now is the tricky part to remove the top cover of the vacuum so you can access the compartment to put the belt on. The whole top part of this vacuum comes off. If you look above the part where black plate was, there are two more clips on the top left and top right hand corner. These two hold one end of the top cover. It is not as simple as pushing the clip to one end to slide out. You have to find a gap between the edge of top cover and bottom structure(right next to each clip) and shove the flat screw driver in and push the top cover away from the bottom structure and push down the top cover. You will notice that there are invisible hinges between the two which locks in the top cover.

Do the same procedure for the bottom right and left edges(right next to each end of the brush) of the vacuum and separate the two(bottom structure and top cover) out using the flat type screw driver..

SOURCE: Hoover Wind Tunnel Bagless problem with carpet hight adjustment

Hi There Alec from VacuumSpot here.
Most of these machines don't actually change the height until the handle is lowered so even though you change the dial when it is an upright position it is not until you lower the handle that the height is actually selected. Assuming that you are aware of this and it is still not adjusting I would suspect you have a small arm or lever broken. It is very rare for a height selector to simply fall out of place.The job would take 5 minutes in my opinion so it is simple but a bit fiddly.

Height adjustment does not work


Hello! The vacuum does not move up and down when you change the height setting. When the handle is reclined is when the height of the nozzle will adjust. Hope this was helpful!

No site available for that, but the height adjustment on this machine only works when you let the handle down.

Height adjustment won't work on Hoover windtunnel


In my experience, Hoover height adjustment are "stops" rather than being attached to an axel. Look for something that rould resemble a set of circular steps somewhere in the path the axel would take as it goes up and down. It is usually on the underside from the knob that sets the height. Each 'step' represents a height with the shortest step being the lowest setting from a certain perspective.

On some Hoovers, therte is a ratchet petal on the right side. The ones I have seen are similar in operation to the above.

Let me know if this helps you.
