Does not work

This upright is 10 years old and stopped working suddenly. Is it time for the Windtunnel grave or is one of the possible causes repairable?

My hoover wind tunnel just quit while vacuuming. It is dead??? Two years old used about every other week? Any suggestions?

Some Wind Tunnels by Hoover have a poor design in the switch on the handle. Sometimes the switch does not turn on all the way and will stop running. Other times you can't turn the unit off.

As I was vacuuming my vacuum cleaner stopped working

Hi, it's Allie from Crucial Vacuum!

Your Hoover Windtunnel may have stopped working for several reasons. First, make sure that your unit is properly plugged into an electrical outlet and make sure the electrical outlet is working correctly. Vacuum units, and other appliances, protect themselves from sudden electrical charges, ups and downs. Make sure the electrical fuse and breaker are on, if not reset breaker.

Some units may heat up and will automatically shut themselves down to prevent fires. Allow your unit to cool down for 30 minutes while the thermal protector is automatically reset. Overheating, may have been caused by a clogged hose, dirty filters, full bags or a roller brush that is not running properly. All these situations compromise the unit's air flow and make the unit work harder, making it to heat up.

To avoid these situations and to keep your unit running at it's maximum capacity, make sure to change filters regularly (recommended every 3-6 months), clean your brush roll from any tangled hair strands or debris monthly (roller brushes are recommended to be replaced at least yearly), and replace belts every 6 months.

You can purchase direct your replacement belts, bags, roller brush and filters from Crucial Vacuum with free shipping and an exclusive 10% coupon for readers, use code: FIXYA10

Vacuum stopped while sweeping the floor

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

I have a windtunnel2,bag,upright, all the sudden stopped working.Its getting power, but something behind the bag clicks.. and nothing happens.

Jana, There's nothing behind the bag of the machine that should make a clicking sound at any time. As to why it stopped, there are several possibilities, including a faulty switch, motor, wiring, etc. I see you're in White Pigeon, my shop is just a couple miles north of Three Rivers if you'd care to bring it in, I could possibly diagnose it better there. Just call 279-6077 before coming up . Corky

My vacuum is less than a year old- as a n upright it no longer picks up

check your filters. If you havent changed them, replace.. these filters get clogged putting excess strain on the motors and causing loss of suction

The small belt attached to the roll brush keeps slipping off. It's a brand new belt and the vacuum is only 1 yr old.

The small belt rarely gives the problem you describe. The larger belt can jump off if the belt is worn or if th roller gets caught on something suddenly.The belt should be replaced every 9 - 12 months. If your carpet setting is too low this will cause the belts to wear faster that the estimated given time

Hoover U5468-900 WindTunnel Supreme suction is suddenly poor

The other possibility is there is a blockage in the foot. these models have dual channel air flow (windtunnel) and become blocked when not cleaned depending on use. under the roller there is a cavity that can be removed for cleaning. a hot motor can be caused by poor air flow.

I have a hoover windtunnel bagless vac that is several years old. the floor vacuum part still works fine, but the handtool attachment has no suction and is useless all of a sudden.

Don't have your model number, but some have a valve down on the noozle part that may be broke. When it is its upright position, the valve won't change over to the hose only position. You would have to remove the top cover to see this.
