Very likely it's the cord at the nozzle neck. These cords flex when you vacuum and they often break internally where the cord goes into the neck. Turn the vacuum on and wiggle the cord at the powerhead and see if the powerhead comes on and off. If this happens, then you will have to replace the cord.
On some of the early models, the receptacle in the hose, where it plugs into the top of the wands, will break away from the plastic pins it sits in, and the receptacle will slide back into the handle, which means that it will not plug into the powerhead connection when you connect the hose. You can check this by looking at the end of the hose and observing if the receptacle is sitting flush with the opening it sits in. If it is pushed back, it will not make a complete connection with the powerhead cord that is sitting at the top of the wands.

SOURCE: Hoover WindTunnel Canister: Roller brush motor not turning

These motors have a fuse incorporated in the field winding and it sounds like that blew. These motors sometimes overheat at the front bearing and the bearing will melt into the plastic housing. This will cause the fuse to blow. It sounds like that's your problem. You can remove the motor by removing the three screws on the bottom of the powerhead and then check the front bearing for any bubbling or blistering in the plastic housing. The shaft of the motor should turn easily.

SOURCE: replacing a fraayed and twisted power cord on a Hoover windtunnel upright

It has a 35 foot cord on it, but I think an 16g wire should be ok. It may say on the wire what gauge it is and I think that it is either 17 or 18 guage.

SOURCE: repplacing power cord on Hoover Wind tunnel (not self propelled)

I am thinking that the cord goes in on the back, just below the handle. Remove the handle, then from the front, remove the tool holder(#8), then you can get to where the cord comes in and hooks up.

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.

How do I replace cord rewinder on Hoover UH70120?


You should not try this on your own. Take it to an authorized Hoover warranty repair center near you. This is not an easy job and is usually not worth the expense if the machine is out of warranty anyway. If it's within the warranty period, warranty will cover it. My shop is a Hoover warranty center and we have replaced a lot of these.

Replacing a fraayed and twisted power cord on a Hoover windtunnel upright


ok so I took this vaccum apart completely except for the electrical and motor systems. It seems to me that without dismantling both of these systems on the vaccum you can't replace the power cord. And I wouldn't recommend taking them apart unless you know what you are doing since replacing the power cord seems to require cutting the old power cord and soldering the new one onto the old terminals. All in all its probably easier to get a new vaccum altogether.
