Question about Hoover Vacuums

1 Answer

I have the Hoover upright windtunnel and have used it only once. It worked wonderfully the first time but now only the hand tool has suction. I can't find the book that came with it though. How do I get the main vacuum to work?

Seems like you must have suction at th hose. The either a belt came off or it is plugged up at the dirt inlet by the brush roll. Some Hoovers have a spring loaded door that opens and closes depending on whether the handle is down or in its upright position, It may not be opening when you drop the handle to vacuum.

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.

Vacuum not clogged but has low suction


Check all the pipes, there could be something stuck in them which hasn't come out.
Also check the base of the vacuum if there is something stuck in the base.
Lastly check if there are any leaks in the pipes.
Also check the suction without using the handle, by pulling the pipe in your hand and see if it has more suction.

Wind tunnel t series vacuum won't turn on


I had the same problem and used a tool to clean out the suction tube on my Windtunnel Series T. It was full of junk packed in tight. After cleaning it out there's no more turning off or overheating. It actually works better than when I first got it (used from a friend).

Suction not working on vaccuum.


Check for a blockage in the hose, or a tear / hole in the hose between the "pleats"

Connect or disconnect hose on upright vacuum


The hose has to be connected to engage the suction. To test this, is there suction in the hose when you turn the vacuum on? If so then the hose needs to be connected.

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.

No suction


have u checked all of the filters. I know that when not all the filters r clean the machine will turn on but then it will sound louder and still have no suction. Most times there is a filter under dirt container thats sits above motor and if this filter is not clean the motor cannot breath. Thus no suction

Loss of suction in my Hoover Windtunnel bagless selfpropelled upright


Did you check the dirt inlet by the brush roll, filters ok, they should be replaced once a year. Belts can look fine, but if they are a few months old, I am sure they have stretched and the brush roll will not turn like it should under load. It is possible that the motor isn't running up to speed, thereby reducing suction.

Hoover Windtunnel


Mine does the same thing. There is no suction. I found that there is a door that opens when you tilt the handle in the down possition. I think there should be a spring in place so it can open. Until I find a replacement spring I have to open the door manually throught the opening under the light.
