Hello,
I would advise you to ALWAYS to FIRST UNPLUG YOUR VACUUM before beginning any service procedure. Hoover U6437-900 / U6439-900 WindTunnel. On the Hoover and probable on the Fantom it sounds to me like you have a broken motor mount and it needs replacing on both machines. 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.

Have a Dirt Devil Cyclonic bagless upright that is new and throws the belt when used. You can run it off the floor and the belt stays on. The belt is new as is the vacuum...?


It's possible that your vacuum belt is stretched even if it's new and has never been used. A stretch belt should be replaced at least twice per year even I'd you may have never even turned the vacuum on. The belt starts to lose elasticity as soon as it is installed. The vacuum was likely made in China and between the factory, shipping and warehouses and the store shelf it is very possible for a belt to have lost elasticity and need replaced before you even took it home from the store. Start by replacing the belt and then replace at least every six months.

sounds like the motor bearings are bad. when those bearings wear out the motor shaft doesnt stay strait and allows the belt to track off.

The belt keeps breaking lately. I've had the


Before putting on the new belt make sure the brush turns freely and nothing is wraped around the bearing ends, if it is not turning free and is clean try a little grease or vasaline on the bearing ends. dont get any on the belt though. check the motor shaft also it should be clean and no residue from the old belts on it. it can be cleaned with rubbing alcohol and a rag, if really caked try a scotch pad .

My hoover tind tunnel model 5453-900 series the belt keeps slipping off the agitater brush-what can i do to fix it


your belt has probobly stretched even though it continues to function. try a new belt assuming the belt path is clear and any guides are properly positioned when the cover is properly replaced and the hump on the brush roll that contacts the belt is not mishapen.

Belt Keeps Coming Off


Replace the belt with afresh, proper sized one. Yours is stretched. It will be shiny on the underside. hoover belts are meant to fit snug. Check the bearings on the end of the brush roll to remove dirt and thread. The proper belt will need to be stretched into place using the brush for leverage. Likely that your low carpet is more dense causing enough drag to throw the stretched belt.

The light indicates that the brushroll is spinning. If it isn't coming on, the power nozzle may have been reinstalled incorrectly. Take the nozzle off and then use my step-by-step guide to reinstall it. I expect that it will take care of the problem.

HOOVER WINDTUNNEL VACUUM MODEL U6454-900 BELT KEEPS COMING OFF


Have you put on a new belt or just keep using the old one. If you haven't replaced it in the last 6 months, then it has stretched to the point where it won't stay on. Another cause is catching throw rugs, towels or something that gets in there and knocks the belt off.

Hoover Bagless Windtunnel (tank tyle) selfpropeled head throws belt; 2nd one doing exactly as the first vacumm.very hard to put it back on .can't even get one room done


Is this a new belt? If not, get a new one. Check the brush roll, make sure the ends are turning freely, if not, replace it. If you are catching things like a throw rug and towell or some other thing, this will cause the belt to get knocked off of the motor shaft.
