You need to open up the vacuum, take out the filter and see why it won't spin. If something is stuck, free it. It may just need a good cleaning. If you need to lubricate it at all, do so, make sure it spins freely by hand before running the vacuum again. Let me know how this goes.

The filter is run by vaccum. Take the filter out and there is a passage way in there that could be blocked. If I rememer correctly there is a screen in there. If that dont help then there is a spring hooked to a lever underneath so when you lay the back down it engages caccum to the rollers. It could be that this is stuck and not moving.
Try moving it by hand with the scrubber running.

Thanks

Hepa filter stopped on Hoover Windtunnel 2 Model #U8361-900


This has a simple solution IF you have a air compressor with a high pressure nozzle. Outside the house, first remove the Dust bin completely and lay the unit down with the dust bin area up. now start blowing the nozzle at the hepa filter, Alot of dust will come out. Now start to rotate the filter while blowing the dust out. The filter will move one way easier, When there is no more dust reinstall the dustbin and check the suction and the rotation of the filter.

Hayden SuperVac central vacuum making an unbelievably loud noise.


Stop using the vac. Remove the filter and clean thoroughly, inspecting for damage. If the vac is spiting out bits off fuzz or lint it may need the motor cleaned and serviced as dirt has leaked past the filter. If it is spewing black, not gray this is carbon dust from the motor brushes. If the noise is scratchy or growling this is a sign of a motor problem as well.
The muffler unless it is a hepa filter/muffler combination is NOT designed to catch dust.
Exhaust dust is a sign of dust leaking through the motor which indicates future moor problems.
HINT, if the guy who installed the muffler didn't secure it right he is probably not a good choice as a service tech either. The muffler is normally clamped or secured in place with a small screw so it can be removed in the event of service.

Dirt Devil Extreme Quick Vac - Won't turn on


Check that the filters are completely clear and not blocked - especially the top filter on top of the bin assembly. If its clogged completely brush it free of dirt and then reassemble. Make sure the inner cone filter and mesh filter is also completely clean. Then check the hose and main dust channel - something is clogged that makes this machine overheat and stop working - and often with this model (Hoover also make it in the UK under the Alyx name) its down to clogged filters or small clogs of dust in the dust channels. 
Don't forget to rate, thanks.

Filter Queen Assembly


On the rubber piece, there is a groove on the inside edge for the screen first, then the filter. Just have to work them into that slot. Then put over the bottom housing. The round paper filter is put on over the tank, then the top unit sits on that. These filters will keep dust out of the motor and head asm.
