SOURCE: WindTunnel HEPA Filter won't spin

Sorry everyone but that is a common problem, the filter gets so dirty it stops spinning and then burns out the motor that is supposed to turn it. It is a nightmare to fix.

SOURCE: WindTunnel HEPA Filter won't spin

I just fixed my HEPA filter not rotating!!

It involves taking apart the vacuum HEPA area. All screws are the same size. There are a LOT of 'em. Really straightforward putting it back together too.

ok, once you take the HEPA canister area off the vacuum, careful with the wires! Unplug them from the controller board. You open up the HEPA chamber by removing more screws until you see where the motor that turns the filter is mounted on the side. Remove motor from the green chamber. Note where the washer goes. Once the motor is off, you'll see that the center hub that drives the HEPA filter is rounded out. What I did was jam little bits of aluminum from a pop can into the space between the circle and the square to force the walls back to square. I started by folding a little piece of aluminum over and over so it was about three layers thick. Jammed that in. That wasn't quite enough thickness so I shoved another piece with it. If you can find something that is about 4 times the thickness of a pop can aluminum, that'd probably work too. Slight wedge shape on the tip would help. Any sort of tiny shim.

To test your work, just put a couple of holder screws into the HEPA cannister housing, plug in the cover/switch, plug in the HEPA moter. Turn it on for a few seconds to make sure the filter turns. Then you can add more thickness to the hub or put things back together.

use a penny to turn the 2 screws on top a quater turn then fold down the vacuum and lift up the cover and you will have access to the belt. Clean the small hepa filter with soapy water. their may be 2 of them. The cannnister filters need to be shaken but not washed. Good luck.

Belt works fine but there is no suction


This usually indicates a clog in the hose and airflow system. It's most likely to be behind the filter in the tank or in the power head area.
Detach hose from power head and look inside. If you can't see anything, try dropping a penny through it. You can also try dropping a penny through the hose itself to check for clogs in it.
Detach the hose from the tank and check just inside the hole.

My vacuum is not sucking up that good and none of the dirt is revolving in the clear part of the vacuum like it normally does


The normal air flow has decreased considerably. Look for a clog inside the sweeper head and for a plugged HEPA filter (remove it to test) on the outlet. Hope this helps!

Might be that its not exausting enough heat & stutting its self down..

This will increase air flow & maybe fix the issue..

How to clean hepa filter


Run the HEPA filter under warm running water and allow to dry completely - preferably where it can get air from both sides of filter, do not dry in direct sunlight this can damage the filter, it is best in a warm room, can be dried in a dishdrainer if possible this way it gets air from both sides and will dry fast without promoting mold/mildew Good Luck !

HEPA Filter
Posted by jenski66 on Jul 02, 2008
My vacuum came with a sponge over the filter and the directions said I could wash the filter. Do the directions mean to wash the black sponge or the actual filter? Is the sponge part of the filter or is it trash?

Hello,
I would advise you to ALWAYS to FIRST UNPLUG YOUR VACUUM before beginning any service procedure. Typically the top filter of which is the sponge is washable but the HEPA filter is not, it can be brushed off and vacuum off with another vacuum, but the best filtration is to replace the HEPA filter and to wash the sponge filter, if the sponge filter get to bad then replace the sponge filter as well. Or, you can check with your local vacuum cleaner dealer in your area or to contact the manufacturer’s website and or phone #. 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.
