You might need a new agitator (brush). if you caught something on it like : shoe laces, socks or anything that stops the brush. you should see on the brush were the v-belt goes burn marks or even gashes. this is a indication that you need a new brush.

I need a diagram to show me where and how to install the front belt< I think the motor belt) on my Hoover Windtunnel, self propelled Model U6634-900 series x12-0 60HZ 120 V


Most vacuums are pretty well the same belt set-up...remove the metal plate covering the rotating floor brush and pull it out...place new belt over motor pulley and and stretch other end over rotating floor brush in the space provided for it....pull and place ends into slots on the sides....if the belt is not straight flip the brush the other way...you will figure it out. Just be sure to buy the right belt!!!

Regards,
Dennis

U6485-900 WindTunnel Self-Propelled I changed the belts but there is not enough tension on the brush drive belt to get it to rotate


I had the exact same problem with my Hoover U6485-900 Anniversary upright, self propelled, vacuum. It would move backwards and forwards, had good vacuum, but wouldn't pick up much because the brush/roller was not turning very well. I replaced the main drive belt (38528035) and it now works great. The old belt had stretched and was slipping under load. Thanks for the great suggestions.

Just replaced the belts on my Hoover Windtunnel II self-propelled vacuum. The brushes are now turning ok, but the self propelled feature is not working. Squeals when when you lock it in the upright...


Check the plastic part, which the the self propelled cable is attached to. (release the handle, tilt it back. You should be able to see the cable attached by a screw to a black plastic arm.) It is either broken or the cable is lose.

THE ROLLER WON'T GO AROUND. THE EXTRA ATTACHMENT WORK WELL, BUT THE ROLLER STOPPED GOING AROUND.


HI There,

This is definitely a problem with your belts. This Hoover Windtunnel Self-Propelled models has a poorly designed belt system that frequently goes bad. Most customers will have to replace the belt once every 8-12 months, some even more frequently than that.

There are 2 belts on this machine, and it's recommended that you replace both belts at the same time. If you just replace one of the belts, this will cause the other belt to go bad quicker.

If you don't already have the replacement belts, here are links to these belts through us:
Hoover WindTunnel Self Propelled Belt Set (38528-034 & 38528-035)

Here's a helpful video that we've recorded that shows you step by step on how to replace these belts, as well as how to do the basic maintenance on the roller brush to prolong the life of the belts as long as possible.

How To Replace the belts on a Hoover Windtunnel Self-Propelled:

Please be sure to rate this repair helpful, or leave feedback if this video helped you fix the problem. If you're still having problems, please just use the comment field on the repair page and leave a little more specific information on what happened when you inspected the belts, and I'll be more then happy to do some further more advanced diagnosing for you.

By rating the repairs helpful, and leaving feedback, this ensures that Fixya experts continue to leave free repair solutions rather then just leaving premium answers, or repairs that customers pay to have answered. This is also really appreciated.

Belt will not stay on hoover windtunnel s3765


The Hoover Windtunnel™ Self-Propelled models have two belts, a flat belt and the V-Belt. This V-Belt is the one that drives the Brush Roller. After about three months, most belts stretch out causing them to slip. This means the brushroll turns slower or not at all and the self-propelled becomes increasingly harder to push. It is recommended that both belts should be changed at the same time.

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

Hoover wind tunnel upright self propelled. U6473-900. Brush does not work. Heard it was a 'brush controller' problem and can be fixed. Please tell me how.


Most likely the flat belt has stretched enough so as to not turn the pulley that in turn turns the brush roll using a V belt. Also there is a small idler wheel, if hook up, then it won't engage the V belt.

Windtunnel self-propelled feature broken


If it is a rubber smell, then it could be belts and/or brush roll. If it is an electrical smell, then it could be the motor. Take the belts off and see if it still makes that noise, if it does, then the motor is going bad.

Hoover windtunnel Self-propelled - brush roll stops


There is a idler wheel that will drive the V belt, sometimes they jam and you just have to reach in, push and make sure if comes in contact with the belt. Alot of times tho it is the other flat belt, 38528035 that will stretch and can cause you to have problems with the brush roll not turning.
