I have the same problem , and Like the the person who asked the Question ,, there is no Blockage ,, Im thinking maybe these filters have a very short life span ,, and even cleaning theses filters with a brush, etc , may not be enough, and could have to be replaced. I have great suction, before the filter, but really non after the filter..I have taken apart all areas that could be blocked , with no Blockage anywhere...I ll follow up on this and let you no the Solutionj soon thanks Rick

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.

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.

Self Propel doesn't work on Hoover Wind Tunnel


Your self propel wire could be broken. Lean the vacuum back like you were using it. If you stand in front of the vacuum look down and to your left. When you move the selp propel button you should see a wire move. If not then it's broken.

Self Propel wheels not enough power to move machine over carpet.


Sounds like the transmission might need an overhaul. Take it to a local vacuum repair shop and have them look at the transmission.

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,

I have little suction when using the hose attachment


Check the hose for a blockage. If you remove the hose, if there is suction at the point where the hose hooks to the back of the vac, then the hose is clogged. If no suction there, check filters, make sure they are clean.

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.

Hoover Wind Tunnel Upright Self-Propelled


Thanks to reddevil6. Sure enough it was the belt. What I did was take off the belt and flipped it over, worked like a charm. Since it was stretched on one side the other side was still ok. Still need a new, but s aved me a trip to the store!
