Windtunnel self-propelled feature broken

Hello, Any advice on the self-propelled feature? Mine is now whining/screaching and smells like it's burning up. I see the bar in front gets "stuck" ~ will changing the drive belt help fix this problem?

If it is a rubber smell, then it could be belts and/or brush roll. If it is an electrical smell, then it could be the motor. Take the belts off and see if it still makes that noise, if it does, then the motor is going bad.

Why won't hoover wind tunnel self-propel?


Hi there! The self-propelled feature is controlled by a belt. Check the belts on your Hoover Windtunnel by following these quick steps.

1. Recline the handle. Lay the cleaner fat and flip it over to expose nozzle base.
2. Remove the screws attaching the nozzle.
3. Check that the belts are not broken, stretched or damaged.

Replace the belts if they are damaged. Hope this helps!

Self propel wheels not moving and smell like burning rubber coming from the back of the vacuum. How do you get to the belt to replace it?

I believe that you're asking about the Hoover Windtunnel Self-Propelled upright, but I can't be sure. I've posted a video below that we recorded showing how to replace the belts on your Hoover WT. If you have a different model then this, please just add a comment to this repair of the make and model and I'll be more then happy to walk you through.


Thank you,

It might be a slipping rubber belt, is the brush roller moving when you look underneath? If it's a self propelled machine there might be another slipping belt. Friction from fast rubbing rubber can smell like it is burning.

There is a cable from the handle down to the transmission on this machine that breaks all the time or the cable is mounted to a plastic piece that is broken. That will need to be replaced.

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.

Can you verify the model number? However, based on your posted description, it sounds like the flat belt is either broken or fell off. to access the belts turn it over and remove the bottom plate (4 screws). the Flat belt will connect to the motor shaft in the back and the large black pulley.
