Question about Hoover UH70120 WindTunnel TSeries Rewind Bagless Upright Vacuum Cleaner

1 Answer

Whiel vacuuming i accidentally vacuumed over the cord and it got stuck around the brush and it melted down to the wires. After taking the brush off and removing the melted rubber I put it back together and now when I turn it on it sounds like the brush is hitting somewhere in that area its a steady thud sound as it goes around. What could be wrong with it? Thanx, Dawna Blevins

Before you do anything, did you wrap the wires with electrical tape? If not, you could get shocked, or at the very worse, burn it up.

As far as the thud sound goes, it sounds like you might have bent the brush and it's rubbing on something where it's bent. try to straighten it. Otherwise, are you sure you got all the rubber out?

Good luck.

    You might check the belt, it may have a worn area that makes a noise when it passes the motor or brush.

The cord to my window blinds accidentally got sucked up by my Dyson DC07. Is there a way to get the cord out without cutting the cord?


Hi there, it's Jack at Dyson.

This would depend on exactly where the blind cord is stuck. If it's wrapped around the rotating brush bar you should be able to retrieve it by removing the soleplate and unwinding it - this should prevent you needing to cut it.

DC07's soleplate is quick and easy to remove - just use a coin to undo the catches which hold it in place for easier access to the brush bar:

Your vacuum is clogged. turn upside down so you can see the spinning brush. take a philips screwdriver and remove the screws holding the bottom plastic cover on. remove the spinning brush. take a wire or piece of hanger and fish out all the junk stuck in the vacuum tube.

How do I replace the power cord on an electrolux 8502A vacuum cleaner?


1 Unplug the vacuum and remove all accessories such as extensions and brushes. Open the vacuum's outer casing to get at the end of the power cord. Exactly how you will do this depends on the model of vacuum. Generally it simply involves the removal of two to three Phillips-head screws.
2 Follow the power cord to the two connections at the vacuum's motor. Unfasten any clips or holding bracket and disconnect the cord from the motor. Sometimes this can be accomplished by unscrewing two connection screws, other times the cord is soldered directly to the motor. If this is the case use wire cutters and cut the cord about 4 inches from the motor to give room for splicing on a new cord.
3 Insert the new power cord into the vacuum. Follow the exact same path as the old one. If there were any brackets or clips that held the old cord in place inside the vacuum or out use them on the new cord.
4 Tie a knot in the cord on the inside of the vacuum casing so that it will not accidentally be pulled out of the motor once it is in use.
5 Connect the new cord to the motor in the same fashion as the old one. With wire strippers take off about 1 inch of insulation from the new cord to expose the two wires. Either wrap them around the connection posts and re-screw, or twist the new cord wires around the 4-inch remnants of the old cord and seal all exposed wire and connections with electrical tape.
6 Replace the vacuum's casing in reverse order from how you removed it. Plug in the vacuum to test.

If there's a burning smell and the belts are fine, the problem is going to be hot wires causing the insulation to melt, or the motor going bad. Discontinue use and have it checked at a repair shop.

I got a cord wrapped around the roller brush and after removing it the roller brush won't turn.


should have smelt a rubber smell at the same time. The rubber belt probably melted in half. Just flip vacuum over so you can see the bottom. look for arrows pointing to clips or screws. Usually requires removing one panel and the brush. Buy new belt (look on vacuum for correct size or take make and model and name to the store). Just reinstall, replace brush and cover and screws and your all good.

Cable is stuck in the vacume s 1361 hoover


Unplug the vacuum from the wall. Disasemble the brush assembly. Usally there are 2 screws, one on each side. Manually reverse the brush and dislarge the cord. Inspect the cord to make sure its not frayed or exposed wire before reusing.

I got a cord wrapped around the roller, and now neither the roller nor the suction work...only hot air coming out the top of the base.


To unrap the cord from this vacuum you will have to do the following:
First turn the vacuum upside down and place head on counter and handle on the floor. You will have remove the base plate. There are 3 screws that hold it in place. Since cord is wrapped around the brush roller you will not be able to take it all the way off, but it will give you access to the brush roller. If the belt is still on the brush roller, I suggest you cut it, so you can lift the brush roller out of the base and that will make untangeling the cord easy. If you need a new belt here is the info on that.

There is suction to the vacuum, however the brush will not turn. Any suggestions?


there is also a small reset button on the outside of the head next to the brush that you can push to get it to start spinning again. dont know officially why its happens, but i would think its there as a safety switch in case something gets stuck

Kenmore direct drive will no longer self-propell


There may also be a reset button. If the brushes get stuck the unit can shut off power to the brushes to keep a total melt down from occurring. The reset button should return power in these types of vacuums.
