I have a Hoover Windtunnel UH70212. Just a few months old. I used the attachments a while back and now there is very little suction. The power brush attachment doesn't work at all. Any suggestions?

If there is no suction, there has to be a blockage somewhere in the dirt path. You should hear the motor working a little harder in this condition. Please check the entire dirt path from floor to exhaust (clean all filters too) to find the obstruction.

Thanks for your question @ FixYa.com

    Did you follow my suggestions which you requested? Did you insure the dirt path is clear and clean? Whats up with the not helpful rating? You didnt ask any other questions after you followed the suggestion you asked for ... not fair.

Replace power cord on Hoover windtunnel vacumm


There are many different models of Hoover Windtunnel so I can't be specific to your model, you will need to determine where the cord enters the unit and how to gain access to the internal wiring. Disconnect the old cord and attach the new cord using the proper connectors.

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 spits dirt back out the back


Your problem sounds to be an obstruction in the foot (lower body) of the windrummel. Most all windtunnel's have a second cavity for suction to go over the top of the roller. When you remove the bottom plate, next remobe the belt and roller, under the roller will be a removable cavity, take it out. remove the dirt and clean out any debris. also check the suction path connecting hose. if your belt has not been changed in the last 12 months, I would recommend changing that as well.

The vacuum has no suction at the floor. I have checked the hose, and no blockage. When I try to use the attachments, still no suction. What could be the problem.

Hello,
I would advise you to ALWAYS to FIRST UNPLUG YOUR VACUUM before beginning any service procedure.

You definitely have a clod between the tube by the brushroll area and the attachment hose and the best way is to take a wire hanger and make a little hook on the end to see if there is a clog, the clog is closer to the fan area and anything big would clog up the area sideways and
-- you may have to remove the top cover to see if there is a clog and to better get @ it from the top. Another suggestion is to do a belt change whether you have one or 2 belts on the vacuum and to change the belts @ the same time every 4 to 6 months. Also, check you owner’s manual under trouble shooting to see if there is something else, other wise that is what I think is the problem. 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.

Getting no suction


Check the hose for a clog, when suction is low, you will usually find a clog in the hose or in the dirt inlet by the brush roll. If this is less then a year old, then it is still in warranty, if you can't figure it out, then take it and proof of purchase to a warranty repair shop.

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.
