Question about Hoover U5780-900 Windtunnel Cyclonic Bagless UprightVacuum

2 Answers

Agitator bar makes a rattling sound when engaged.

I have a hoover U5780 900 less than one month old.  When I first got it, it was very quiet.  Now, however, when I engage the carpet agitattor, it makes a raatling sound like there is something stuck inside.  I took of the baseplate, and there is nothing in there.  It seems like the bar is coming in contact with the housing somehow.

If you have caught anything like shoes laces in it. you will have to replace the agitator and also the v-belt. when you catch something in the machine and don't have enough time to turn it off, it can cause the v-belt to cut into the v channel that the v-belt sitts in. hope this helps

Hoover 5000PH power head is feeling heavy. Cleaned everything, drive belt is fine, still not gliding across the carpet.


The belt may seem fine but could still be causing your problem. If it is over 6 months old replace the belt.

How do I remove the agitator from an old Hoover 2315L?


Agitator itself just slides on splined shaft. At that age it's undoubtedly "growed" on there and isn't going to be easy to pull in all likelihood. Brute force and awkwardness are about the only tools as it's rarely possible to get any leverage in any place that will do any good and the edge of the agitator itself away from the center is generally to weak to use as a pry point, anyway. Some have a removable cap at the top that can either be unscrewed or pried out depending on the make/model -- if so, you can sometimes from that point actually see the splined shaft and get some solvent down there to help. Unfortunately, ime, the "goop" has always signified a transmission shaft seal failure and nothing less than replacing that seal will solve the problem

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--

Agitator bar on UH4700RM wind tunnel doesn't turn


Unfortunately you machine is a re manufactured vacuum and has a 6 month warranty. (The RM suffix indicates this ) You should take it to your local vac shop and let them look at it. It's probably a minor issue.

I have a Hoover Floormate, Spinscrub 500, I just wanted to know if tis model can also clean carpets.


SORRY , IT'S NOT DESIGNED OR HAS THE ABILITY TO DO ANYTHING OTHER THEN MINOR SPOT CLEANING. TO DO A CARPET , YOU'LL NEED A FULL SIZED UNIT. THE PROBLEM IS THAT NO MATTER WHAT BRAND YOU BUY YOU'LL HAVE PROBLEMS IN LESS THEN 3 MONTHS AS THEY ARE ALL MADE IN CHINA NOW AND THE QUALITY IS TERRIBLE. GOOD LUCK AND WHATEVER YOU DO , DON'T BUY IT FROM KOHL'S , THEY HAVE THE WORST.

It sounds like the motor that spins the beater brush is burned out,If it is under a yr old it should be covered by the manufacturer warretee. Find a Hoover service center that does warrentee repairs.
