Try going to hoover.com and either email them or there is a number that you can call, this is hoover direct, so someone there should be able to help you. Have your model and serial numbers and purchase date handy in case they ask. It also has a 2 year warranty on it. So if you bought it in the fall of 2006, then you have until the fall of 2008. I would take it to an warranty servicer and get it repaired before the warranty runs out.

You probably jammed the roller brush and the gears on the motor stripped the teeth out of the drive belt.  You have to take the bottom and the top covers off the lower unit to replace the belt.  There is a hidden screw that keeps you from taking off the top, thus creates work for authorized Hoover repair shops.  You'll find that screw under the round red label in the center of the top of the lower section.  Peel it up and there is the screw.

How to replace power cord on Hoover Windtunnel...
Posted by SaxTeacher on Apr 15, 2008
The cord on my Hoover Windtunnel upright vacuum is damaged from having been run over while vacuuming. I purchased a replacement power cord, agitator brush, belt, and filters from the Hoover web site.
I have installed the new brush, belt, and filters. I'm ready to install the replacement cord, but I can't figure out how to access the interior part of the vacuum! I tried removing many different screws but none of them seemed to give me access to the necessary area. Any help would be appreciated!



Hello,
I would advise you to ALWAYS to FIRST UNPLUG YOUR VACUUM before beginning any service procedure.
Hoover U6616-900 Windtunnel Bagless Upright
Depending on where the cord comes out, you may want to check the owner’s manual for the exploded view of the cord area. Usually the cord comes out of the handle and there should be handle screws to release the existing cord and when you replace the cord mark the wires so that you will replace the new cord in the same manner. If it comes out of the body of the vacuum there are recessed screws that will let out into the vacuum to replace the cord. You don’t want to exceed the repairs cost to the price of what you paid for it. The decision should be yours, example: if the repairs costs are $200.00 and you paid $279.99 then @ that point you would have to decide if the repair costs are worth or do you want to pay the lower cost of repair and continue on. Just a suggestion... You may want to check with your local vac dealer. 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.

Mine was under warranty and they replaced the whole assembly for free. Apparently a quality and/or design problem.

SOURCE: hoover upright model u5095-930 belt change

I couldn't find your specific model but this may be similiar to another that you have to position the new belt around the agitator (beater bar) on the bottom of the vacuum, replace the cover, and then turn the vac over and remove the TOP cover to lift the new belt up and place it on the motor shaft/pulley. The new belt may require some effort to pull it over the pulley.

Hope this helps.

How to repair windtunnel hoover agitator that will not turn


Likely a broken belt. Also check the agitator brush roll bearings (in either end under the end caps) for hair, strong, thread, etc. as this will make the brush roll harder to turn and wear/break belts prematurely. If all these check okay, then observe the tensioning roller that causes the V belt (runs from the idler pulley to the brush roller) to be sure it is swinging down when the handle is released to hold tension on the belt, causing it to rotate. These tensioning rollers can break, but often are locked into the "Bare Floor" setting without the user noticing. Slide the carpet brush roll selector (located on top, next to the floor height slide adjustment) back and forth and make certain it is all the way into the "Carpet" setting to allow the tensioning roller to engage. [Note: The tensioning roller is always retracted (in the neutral or off position) when the handle is in the upright position. You must release the handle to allow this tensioing assembly to engage.]

Hello--How about the Flat belt? That would be my next step...then, if it's still not turning, perhaps the beater/agitator bar's bearings are the culprit...calling for a new beater bar /agitator.

Hope this helps--

Hoover UH70935 windtunnel agitator spins like crazy with plate off after cleaning but will not with plate replaced.... what is going on?


If the brush roller was removed, it may have been reinstalled incorrectly, causing it to bind on the bottom plate.

I have no owners manual and need to replace the belt on a Hoover powermax model #:U5242-930 can you help thanks Bab


I don't see this unit on the Hoover support site. However other Powermax vacuums come up in the search for manuals: http://www.hoover.com/CustomerService/manuals/Default.aspx .

Most of the units have very similar belt replacement procedures. First unplug the vacuum. Then press the handle release lever and place the handle in the low position. Next remove the hood by turning the two slots either side of the hood with a coin. Rotate the hood towards the front of the unit and remove it. Then remove the agitator brush roll and the old belt. Discard the old belt.

With the lettering to the outside, slide the new belt over the motor pulley. (The old belt should have been on the pulley. If the belt broke and isn't in place, look for it on the right as you look at the front of the vacuum above the agitator brush roller's position.) Slide the agitator brush roller through the belt and place the belt in the belt guide on the roller. Grasp the agitator and put it into position. Fit it into the rectangular slot on the left. Then pull it into position on the right side of the vacuum. Check if the agitator and the belt turn freely and that the belt isn't pinched between the agitator and the bottom of the unit. Replace the hood by aligning the tabs with the slots on the base. Then turn the coin slots to secure the hood.

I hope this helps.

Hoover wind tunnel 2 bagless vacuum not working


Place handle in low position and turn cleaner over so bottom side is up.
Remove the 4 screws in bottom plate and lift off.
Look on the left side of the agitator brush. You should see the belt there. Remove agitator brush roll and used belt.
Discard belt.
With lettering on outside of belt, slide new belt over motor pulley.
Insert agitator though belt and place belt in belt guide on agitator.
Grasp agitator firmly and fit it onto position by first sliding end opposite the belt into the rectangular slot on side of cleaner.Pull other side of agitator into place
Turn agitator making sure belt is not pinched between agitator and agitator shield.
If this does not take care of your problem, then check your filters for dirt and your entire vacuum for blockages. Both filters do come out. If you can't get a new filter right away you can gently clean the paper filter and remove a lot of dirt. (I recommend outside)! The other filter is washable.
Make sure it is well dried before replacing.
Good luck.

BELTS ON WINDTUNNEL VACUUMS


Greetings from GoVacuum,

Here's an instructional video that we made showing how to change the belt on a Hoover Windtunnel upright. If your model is not a self propelled model, basically follow the same insturctions, expect instead of placing the belt over the pulley, just put the belt through the roller brush, and stretch the roller brush back into the agitator housing.
Please feel free to send me an email if you have any other questions. My email address is chris.jones@govacuum.com.

Thanks,
