If there is no obvious clog in the unit, you might want to check the beater brush and the drive belt. Be sure the belt is not broken and be sure the beater brush is free enough to rotate. If there is a broken belt it will be obvious.
I suggest you remove the beater brush and clean it as best you can, add some WD40 at each end by the brush holders and reassemble.
I would appreciate a Thumbs Up rating on this if you find my solution to be beneficial.

    you will find an exploded view of the unit showing all parts.

    I was hoping it would be more specific, but you might find it of some use.

    Panasonic Dirt Sensor vacuum repair


    Dirt Sensors are sensitive. It doesn't take much to set them off. Try pulling back on the handle to raise the brushroll a few inches off the floor so you know it's not detecting particles of soil. If the light doesn't turn green it may have dirt on the sensors and need to be cleaned.

    Red "DIRTY" light is on most of time, even after going over and over what should be clean carpets. Head is lifted, getting good suction. Got a solution?


    The sensor that detects the dirt can get dirty causing the light to stay on. Hold the vacuum up in the air or position the vacuum in a way to observe the light when the vacuum is running but the nozzle assembly is not on the floor so it cannot be picking up any dirt. If the light will not go off it's likely the sensor needs cleaned.

    My Hoover windtunnel has very little suction. I have cleaned the entire vacuum. Cleaned filters. My Hepa filter is a little torn, don't know if that could be issue. After cleaning it does suck a tad bit...


    Is the belt still intact?
    Does it has a wand tool, normally they are connected at the bottom of the machine,if it gets plugged up with gunk, that will greatly reduce your suction.

    Hoover windtunnel dirt finder light stays red. We've cleaned the elbow the roller the hose and have a clean bag. The vacuum is new only had it for 3 months.


    I'm not sure about a 3 month old vac, I'd probably go the warranty route. However, for the older vacs thy start getting false positives. The sensor is simply a microphone hooked to a computer chip detecting sounds of dirt entering the bag.
    To rig it to start working, you'll need to remove the tool accessory tray and elbow that enters the back of the vac, and attached to the bag. This will reveal the microphone at the elbow, and wire that runs into the bottom area of the vac. When on, a large amount of air comes from the bottom screw and area where the wires enter. My fix was to clean up the microphone contact points a little bit with a screwdriver, and then leave the vac running while putting in dampering in the hole at the bottom, and around the back of the elbow. Cotton balls and electrical tape at the bottom hole, and napkins around the outside of the elbow (wedged between the back of the vac assembly and elbow did the trick). The schematic for the vac is here: http<colon>//www<dot>vacsrus<dot>com/CartGenie/pg_U6485900<dot>asp
    Look for micrphone.

    How can i clean the inside of my bagless vacuum


    If you mean how to clean the dirt containers, rinse them out with water and let them dry before reassembly. Many bagless vacs also have foam filters which can be cleaned the same way. Good luck.

    Vacuum is spitting dirt and debris out the back--what can I do?


    the first thing you should do is clean out the container then check the filter if it looks dirty with a lot of dust it probably needs replacing.
    check the hoes for dirt that might stick up.if the problem continues it needs a service.

    Decreased hose suction with Windtunnel


    There are very few things left to check. First verify that the filter is installed properly, in the dirt cup. second check to make sure the dirt cup lid is on and secure. Did you use water on the round dirt cup filter? if you have you will need to replace it. To verify this remove the round filter and re-install the dirt cup on the vac. do not vacuum the carpet, just turn it on to check for proper suction. and then turn it off.

    Your problem has nothing to do with it in the upright position. once turned on you will always have suction, either to the floor or when hose is removed from foot for accessories.

    I purchased a Hoover WindTunnel

    I purchased a Hoover WindTunnel 2 model#u8361900 in Dec 2007.I am very disappointed because the self cleaning filter is not turning and particles keep clogging in that area. I have manually removed the particles but the filter will not turn. I also haven't been able to use the pet brush for some time. The cleaner has not been used hard about once a week since it was purchased. I am not happy that this product has stopped working efficiently since purchased 6 months ago. Thank you Marcia Long Pottstown Pa
    Hello,
    I would advise you to ALWAYS to FIRST UNPLUG YOUR VACUUM before beginning any service procedure. I sorry you are having a problem with the Hoover WindTunnel Vacuum Model #U8361-900 but I never heard of a filter that you say is self cleaning and NOT turning. I have never seen a filter that turns inside the chamber, the dust and dirt basically go around and circulate around the filter and you can clean the filter by either brushing it off, vacuuming it off or using some type of brush to clean off the filter such as and old paint brush or if you have some type of blower system – that would work as well. You said your vacuum is less than one year old so I would contact your local factory authorized Hoover dealer in your area or to cal the cust serv @ the Hoover factory listed below. 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.

    Embedded dirt finder light stuck


    Try cleaning out all the pathways you can get to. Trapped particles can mess up this indicator. Particularly check the extra mesh filter that is under the bag (there's a plastic grid that snaps over it to hold it into place). Clean that out and make sure the bag is securely in place.
