Hi there it's SmartAlec from NelsonVacuums.com.au here. 9 times out of 10 the loss of suction on this machine will be due to worn or blocked filters. It is most likely to be the filter which is in the dirt canister. It is a bit of a pain to clean but it is the best way to restore lost suction. Simply remove the filter and tap it out and then start brushing the dirt from all the little grooves using a paint brush (dry of course) or similar. If you are lucky enough to have an air compressor this is by far the most effective but be aware it will make a mess so dont do it in the lounge room. If you think this is not the problem send me another message and ill see what else i can suggest. Happy Vacuuming :)

Why won't my hover wind tunnel vacuum turn on


First of all you have checked to make sure you are plugging into a outlet that has power correct ? If you have power at the outlet then when you activate the switch does it make any noise at all ? If not you may have a defective switch. If it's making a noise you may have a broken belt or something jammed in the brush.

There is too much suction even with the hand tools on Hoover wind tunnel. Can i adjust suction somehow?


Hi, it's Jeremy from Crucial Vacuum.

If there is too much suction, adjust the nozzle control knob to a higher setting. The knob is located on the front of the vacuum at the bottom. For optimal cleaning efficiency a low setting should be used for most types of carpet and for hardwood floors, tile, and deep carpets use a higher setting.

Wind tunnel t series vacuum won't turn on


I had the same problem and used a tool to clean out the suction tube on my Windtunnel Series T. It was full of junk packed in tight. After cleaning it out there's no more turning off or overheating. It actually works better than when I first got it (used from a friend).

I have a Hoover Wind Tunnel Self propelled 12amp. There seems to be very little suction. I have cleaned the hoses and filters but still not much suction. any ideas? thanks.


Make sure all filters are cleaned out and entry ways are clear of all debris. Remove hose and check for blockage. Usually the low suction can be remedied when all filters are cleaned. Hope this works for you.

Low suction when using attachments


Have you cleaned the foam filter? located above the dirt tank after you remove it. the manual can be downloaded from the web site at www.hoover.com ; sounds like an obstruction in the hose or elbow on the back of the unit. the hose can be cleared with a broom hadle when you take the hose completely off the vac.

No suction on Hoover Wind Tunnel.


Greetings from GoVacuum.com,

First this is a common problem on ALL bagless vacuum cleaners. Usually it takes longer then 1 day however.

Is there no suction in the suction hose, or is it not suctioning from the floor?

Most people buy a bagless vacuum once, then return to a bagged one after their bad experience, you are not alone!

Please give me the model number to your Hoover, (found on the bottom or the back of the vacuum on a foil label).

Thanks,

Poor suction-need to know how to remove & clean filter under canister of Hoover Wind Tunnel Mach 4.7 Twin Chamber System.


I assume this is a Hoover Bagless, if poor suction, the hose or dirt inlet by the brush roll may have a clog. The filter inside the dirt container may need replacement. Some had a screw to take out to remove the cover for the filter, the one under where hte dirt container sits. Alos the belt may be stretch and won't turn the brush roll under load. Having the model number would help.

Hi.

Check brush roller is spinning when vacuuming.

Wind tunnel hoover


Do you have suction at the hose end, if you do then it may be clogged at the inlet by the brush roll. Is the filter cartridge clean? If it is clogged and air can't pass thru it, then you will have no or low suction. Might also check the belt to make sure it is turning.
