Problem with a WindTunnel 2 Extra Reach Bagless Upright (U8351900)

I took off the spring arm thing to assist in the self-propelled belt to the brush when I was trying to replace one of the two belts. Now, I don't know how to put back right the spring arm to make the brush turn when suppose to. How am I to put it back right as if it wasn't touch by me in the first place?

My dad fixed it by putting the spring under the arm lever and the roller on the outside part of the belt than in the inside as I have been trying to do.. I did however put one part of the spring in the right area of the vacuum. In a hole on the bottom area of the inside. The spring that is bent in a 90 degree angle doesn't go on top of the extend part of the arm lever but underneath. My dad did wounded the spring a bit tighter than it original is. That fixed what many days and hours of my frustration in less than 5 minutes (That's how long it approximately took my dad to fix it and in one try)

Just replaced the belts on my Hoover Windtunnel II self-propelled vacuum. The brushes are now turning ok, but the self propelled feature is not working. Squeals when when you lock it in the upright...


Check the plastic part, which the the self propelled cable is attached to. (release the handle, tilt it back. You should be able to see the cable attached by a screw to a black plastic arm.) It is either broken or the cable is lose.

No suction on Windtunnel 6630-900. All belts work, brush turns, it just won't pick up anything.

Hoover wind tunnel upright self propelled. U6473-900. Brush does not work. Heard it was a 'brush controller' problem and can be fixed. Please tell me how.


Most likely the flat belt has stretched enough so as to not turn the pulley that in turn turns the brush roll using a V belt. Also there is a small idler wheel, if hook up, then it won't engage the V belt.

Windtunnel self-propelled feature broken


If it is a rubber smell, then it could be belts and/or brush roll. If it is an electrical smell, then it could be the motor. Take the belts off and see if it still makes that noise, if it does, then the motor is going bad.

BELTS ON WINDTUNNEL VACUUMS


Greetings from GoVacuum,

Here's an instructional video that we made showing how to change the belt on a Hoover Windtunnel upright. If your model is not a self propelled model, basically follow the same insturctions, expect instead of placing the belt over the pulley, just put the belt through the roller brush, and stretch the roller brush back into the agitator housing.
Please feel free to send me an email if you have any other questions. My email address is chris.jones@govacuum.com.

Thanks,

Hoover windtunnel Self-propelled - brush roll stops


There is a idler wheel that will drive the V belt, sometimes they jam and you just have to reach in, push and make sure if comes in contact with the belt. Alot of times tho it is the other flat belt, 38528035 that will stretch and can cause you to have problems with the brush roll not turning.
