Question about Hoover U6616-900 WindTunnel Bagless Upright Vacuum

1 Answer

Hoover u6616-900 WindTunnel, belts come off system.

It appears that the circular piece, (which has the belts on it) that is on the shaft does not stay tight as it should against the unit. I believe there is suppose to be a nut holding it tight, which fell out of the cleaner when I took the bottom piece off. Thus the belts do not stay tight in position as they should. I can't seperate the top cover from the internal parts so I can put the nut back on and tighten it in place. It seems like there has to be an easy way to do this, but I am just missing it.
Thanks in advance afo any help you may be able to give me with this.

    Taking the screws out, I was that far. The pushing down two tabs to separate the housing, I can't seem to find these two magic spots. It it possible you forgot that the levers for the carpet height are also under the housing holding that together?

In order to seperate the hood from the agitator housing you will need to remove the screws for the bottom plate (4) remove the plate. next you will see (2) screws. one will be by the belt side the other is on the other side by the sucktion inlet. once the screws are off, take a flat head screwdriver and push the tabs (2)on either side of the plastic where the hood meets the agitator housing. once you do this the hood should release itself. hope this helps

How to stop the main belt from comming off the motor shaft on a hoover modle u6634-900/windtunnel


Hello there! If you have replaced the belt and it is still slipping off, you may be not have the right belt for your vacuum. This unit takes a flat belt and a v-belt. Make sure you are replacing the belts with Genuine Hoover Parts. I have included the links below where you may go to order the belts specific to your cleaner.

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.

Hoover windtunnel - brushes spin fine when it's upside down but when it makes contact witht the carpet it stops completely. Is this the belts?


your belt is stretch out get a new belt.but before you put the new belt on clean the motor shaft .theres usually burnt rubber left on the shaft.if you don't clean it off the new belt won't last very long.you can use a fine piece of emery cloth to take the rubber off and back down to the polished finish on the shaft.and while your at it and you have the brush roller off clean it good.check the ends to make sure they turn freely.sometimes carpet strands get wrapped around the ends.those ends come off ,some unscrew and some just pull off

Flat belt on Hoover Windtunnel requires to be replaced regularly


No it is not normal. The brush roll may be bad causing extra stress on the belt. The other option is the belt is installed incorrectly. I believe this model has a brush on/off option and the belt must be correctly installed around both the motor shaft and the shaft for that brush on/off switch.

Replace the belt


Once the bottom plate has been removed, the motor shaft is silver, but hard to see. hook the new belt on it first. then start rolling on the top of the large black pulley to install.

Put the V belt on the pulley first, then the flat belt, put it over the motor shaft or pulley, then you have to stretch it to go over the pulley next to the V belt pulley.

Your belt may be twisted inside-out. Be sure the printed marks on the belt face away from the pulleys and shaft. The printing should face you.

Hoover windtunnel u6634-900


I have the same problem. I believe, after some inspection, that the mechanism which allows for the circular spin of the brush has failed. Though I'm no mechanic, I believe my girlfriend's long (and beautiful) hair became entangled underneath the gray "end-cap" causing breakage of the rotating mechanism (which I believe is normally housed within the brush under the rectangular "end-cap"...the other "end-cap" piece is circular). Now the brush will spin about 6 rotations but with each spin the gray "end-cap" will extend on its screw rather than spinning freely. I believe my only option is to order another brush. We'll see if it solves the problem.
