Question about Hoover U5444-900 5100 Wind Tunnel 15 Inch Wide Hepa Filter Bagged Black VacuumVacuum

Hoover doesn't suck well

My hoover windtunnel Mach 6.1 doesnt suck small particles anymore. Or sometimes it does suck up particles but then drops them off in other places. I even replaced the bag and made sure the hose was clean as well as under the vacuum. Any suggestions?

Did you check the inlet from the bottom? Take the bottom plate off, make sure that the tube(inlet)is free of any clogs. Also if the belt is stretched, then it won't drive the brush roll like it should, replace it part #38528033.

Not Sucking!


If you have the instruction manual check for how your vac breaks apart. It sounds like you may have to follow and break away all parts until you find the blockage. I am assuming you have full power in your motor .

Is there a manual for the hoover windtunnel Mach 3.8? thanks


if you go to hoover.com and look under download manuels. when it asks you for the model num. for your machine, put it in and push enter/search. if it's the pic. that i see and model num. U6437-900, you will need to put U6439-900 instead.( when putting in the model num. you don't have to put the dash in) i've checked for you and your model num. doesn't show, but the one that i have provided will be almost the same one has yours, but maybe a color difference and some tools extra. the manuel should work for you though. hope this helps

Hoover mach6 the brushes don't turn


Replace the skinny belt, but here's the kicker. turn the belt inside out so that the writing is on the inside and sits against everything. Thats what I did and I have used it once and it worked well, Lets hope it'll keep working.

Hello,
I would advise you to ALWAYS to FIRST UNPLUG YOUR VACUUM before beginning any service procedure. It is possible that you may have a broken or cracked motor mount and the motor has shifted and that could be the reason that the belt is not running straight and aligned properly – if you have the vacuum less than one year – something like this would be covered under the Hoover factory warranty and to contact an authorized Hoover vacuum cleaner dealer in your area or to call the Hoover factory cust serv @ the phone # listed below. So if you need further assistance, please feel free to contact your local vacuum cleaner dealer in your area or in the yellow pages, or contact the factory phone number or website to further assist you with your questions.

I purchased a Hoover WindTunnel 2 model#u8361900 in Dec 2007.I am very disappointed because the self cleaning filter is not turning and particles keep clogging in that area. I have manually removed the particles but the filter will not turn. I also haven't been able to use the pet brush for some time. The cleaner has not been used hard about once a week since it was purchased. I am not happy that this product has stopped working efficiently since purchased 6 months ago. Thank you Marcia Long Pottstown Pa
Hello,
I would advise you to ALWAYS to FIRST UNPLUG YOUR VACUUM before beginning any service procedure. I sorry you are having a problem with the Hoover WindTunnel Vacuum Model #U8361-900 but I never heard of a filter that you say is self cleaning and NOT turning. I have never seen a filter that turns inside the chamber, the dust and dirt basically go around and circulate around the filter and you can clean the filter by either brushing it off, vacuuming it off or using some type of brush to clean off the filter such as and old paint brush or if you have some type of blower system – that would work as well. You said your vacuum is less than one year old so I would contact your local factory authorized Hoover dealer in your area or to cal the cust serv @ the Hoover factory listed below. So if you need further assistance, please feel free to contact your local vacuum cleaner dealer in your area or in the yellow pages, or contact the factory phone number or website to further assist you with your questions.

When sucking up dirt I can feel it hitting my feet


You could have a partial clog eihter in the hose or in the dirt inlet by the brush roll. If can't figure it out, you have a years warranty on this, take it to a warranty repair shop.
