Hoover Wind Tunnel Problem

Good afternoon. While I was running the vaccum a spark came out of the side wher the samll hepa filter is, this was followed by a fouling smelling smoke. At that point the power of the vaccum cleaner dropped dramatically and I unplugged the unit. What the heck was that?

Can not get filters


Hi,
While you are looking for a new filter, you could do this(as written in the instruction manual):
1. Hold the HEPA filter
by the edges and vigorously
"TapClean" the HEPA Filter
dirty side down on a hard,
flat surface until no more
dust is observed falling out
from between the pleats of
the filter.
2.
We recommend washing the HEPA filter
once a month or when suction
appears to be reduced. Let the HEPA
filter air dry completely for 24 hours.
3. Rinse the non-woven pre-filter and let
it air dry completely for 24 hours.
4. Insert the non-woven pre-filter.
5. Reinstall the HEPA filter in the
vacuum.
Have a good day.

Hi My Hoover wind tunnel cyclonic stopped working when i was using it. I tried different plug even then it doesnt work . What to do??


If the motor stopped running, it most likely did because it was not being cooled, becuause something was stopping up the air flow. If you have cleaned the secondary filter out and it still stops while running, then remove the exhaust filter cartridge and try it then. If it does not stop running now, then the problem is the previous models like this had a foam filter as the exhaust filter, not a heppa cartridge filter. You will not hurt the machine by running it without the heppa cartridge. Cut a foam filter to fit to replace it. I do not think Hoover knows this yet.

I have a customer working on this problem today (Sept 2010) I have repaired machines for 30 years. This filter is meant to just catch the tiny particles from getting back into the air. However, it worked fine on the previous machines with the foam filter here instead of this Heppa cartridge.

Bissell 3750-T Bagless Upright Vacuum motor is hot, noisy, and smells like it is burned out, but still working. Can I replace the motor?


There are threee filters inside this unit. Be sure all three are clean. You can't clean the Hepa filter. You can only replace it. You may even try pluging it in and running it (not while vacuuming the carpet) without the filters to see if it is clogged up anywhere. It's not uncommon to **** up an object that doesn't fit though the vaccum hose very well and for that item to cause hair etc to catch on it and plug that hose. Before you know it you have a big plug in that hose. The hose detaches easily. Look through it.

Hepa filter does not turn on hoover wind tunnel vacuum model U6630900. It was working (turning) and I cleaned the filter and canister and now it no longer spins when the vacuum is running.


The part you refer to is not the HEPA filter. It's a very common misconception that that part spins - it looks like it when there's dust whirling around it. In fact, it does not spin - there are no visible moving parts.
