Question about Hoover U6630-900 WindTunnel Bagless Upright Vacuum

1 Answer

My hoover windtunnel is not picking anything up all of a sudden. Also the roller underneith is not spinning. I've replaced filters and the attachment part is working fine, just when it's in the upright position it won't pick anything up. It also doesn't seem to be self propelled anylonger either. It use to **** everything up, including the dog. Please help!

The belt that drives the brush roll has broken. That's why it doesn't pick up and why it doesn't pull itself forwards. Check the User Manual (download from Hoover website if necessary) for information on replacing the belt. Good luck!

I ran the vacuum over throw rugs and the brush roller just stopped. I can't get the roller to work now... it won't even spin and the "brush" feature is in the ON position.


You've got a broken belt. Most Hoover Vacuums have a spare belt attached to the vacuum itself. Replacement is fairly easy and usually won't require tools. To replace your belt:
  1. Unplug the vacuum
  2. Locate clips on bottom of vacuum-Hoover uses clips that can be opened by hand.
  3. Lift up the plate that encloses the rollers
  4. Remove broken belt
  5. Remove roller from it's compartment
  6. Install replacement belt (hooking it around the motor and roller, using the roller for leverage to stretch out the belt until you have the roller in it's compartment.
  7. Replace cover
  8. Put clips back in place.

I have the bagless hoover windtunnel and it doesn't pick up anything and it is very hard to push. Changed the belt and The rollers are spinning and the filter has been changed. What else can I do?


It sounds like there are dirt and hair wound around the wheel axels cousing them not to spin freely. You have to remove all hair and carpet fiber. Then drop a drop of lubricant oil on the axel.
Change the filter.
You should even Check the floor nozzle for clogged dirt.

The bottom of the hoover wont work. its not picking anything up and not spinning round.


You most likely will need to replace the belt on this model. There are 4 screws in the corners of the bottom power nozzle. DO NOT remove the 3 that are grouped together (these are the motor screws). once the top is removed then remove 3 roller cover screws. replce belt and reassemble in reverse order.

Replaced belts and brush roller will not rotate.


check to see if the spindle (small pencil-thin metal rod) is spinning where it projects from the motor. the belt wraps around this rod. if the rod is spinning when the vac is turned on your brush roller could be jammed. the bearing in the far sides of the brush roller frequently pick of long threads and hair and will stop the brush roller or the bearings sometimes overheat when worn and plastic will melt in this area causing stoppage.

Brush roller on windtunnel won't spin


It sounds like you need to replace the actuator arm or the cable to it. Look for Hoover part 43143046 for a start. I've got a similar problem.

Hoover Windtunnel spits dirt back out the back


Your problem sounds to be an obstruction in the foot (lower body) of the windrummel. Most all windtunnel's have a second cavity for suction to go over the top of the roller. When you remove the bottom plate, next remobe the belt and roller, under the roller will be a removable cavity, take it out. remove the dirt and clean out any debris. also check the suction path connecting hose. if your belt has not been changed in the last 12 months, I would recommend changing that as well.
