SOURCE: Hoover Wind Tunnel ON/Off Switch

This happens all the time on our vacuum. Just remove the handle and switch the button manually inside. You will have to do this from time to time as the power switch on the outside will constantly stop working. This, along with the belt replacements are the common complaints on this machine.

Well, the V belt is normally fairly slack until the handle is dropped below 45 degrees, which is when the belt tensioner assembly drops into place. If turning the brushroll by hand when the vacuum is in this position fails to rotate the self propel pulley, the tensioner is not functioning properly and will need to be replaced.
Also ensure that the brushroll can spin freely by hand, as these have a tendency to melt at the ends and seize the brushroll. I have also seen the groove that the v belt fits into melt itself out of round, which can cause the same symptom as you're describing.
Keep in mind as well that while the rubber belt may appear to be ok, it does have to be replaced every 3-6 months whether it breaks or not. Even though it hasn't broken, if you were to hold it up against a new belt, you would see that the old one has stretched significantly: which can decrease the machine's ability to rotate the self-propel transmission pulley and, in turn; the brushroll.

Feel free to contact me with any further questions.

SOURCE: Hoover Wind Tunnel bagless- issue with turning on

Have you tried to plug the vaccuum in another outlet that is on another breaker? It could be the vaccuum tripped the breaker. Turn the breaker back on. The manual mentions the thermal protector could have been activated. If this happened it resets and your vac should run after 30 minutes. I have a Widepath Tempo and it has tripped the surge protector. If this is the problem try turning some things off that are also on that breaker/outlet, or unplug them when you use the vac.

Hoover 30600 max wind tunnel less than a year old makes a whistling noise


Ours did too. I bought a Dyson.

Check for gaps in the hoses and in the wind tunnel canister. Something is not sealing properly.

Sounds like it has an overheat problem and is shutting down to protect itself. Make sure the exhaust filter is clean and that there are no blockages. Hoover UH70086 WindTunnel Cyclonic Pet Rewind Plus Upright Vacuum Parts...

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.

Can not find a proper fitting v-belt to fit my hoover wind tunnel cyclonic. i even ordered it from hoover.


The correct belt is # 38528034 ( package # 40201200 ) This belt may seem loose when it is installed, because there is an "idler bearing" that pushes down on it when the handle is released and dropped back.

How do you change the Hoover wind tunnel belts?


If you turn the vacuum over there will be (4) screws that hold on the base cover for the roller brush. Remove the screws and the cover and you can get to the belt(s). You can get replacement belts here:

Hoover Wind Tunnel does not turn on


that is a pretty good lifespan for a hoover, but its probably the power switch that's bad. Hoover uses a very poor quality switch. It shouldn't cost to much to have it replaced
