I own a self-propelled Hoover
Posted by gohornsgo on July 17, 2008
I own a self-propelled Hoover Wind Tunnel vacuum cleaner (Model U6425-920). I do now have an owner's manual and was wondering how to clean the HEPA filter on this model (*this model uses a vacuum cleaner bag also).
I would advise you to ALWAYS to FIRST UNPLUG YOUR VACUUM before beginning any service procedure. The best way to clean the HEPA filter is to take it outside and use a blower over the trash can and blow off the dust and dirt, or use things like an old paint brush and brush it off, or you can vacuum it off with another canister vacuum or shop vac if you have an extra one. For the best filtration is to replace it, there fore the air flow will catch most of the dust and dirt and then you would have to watch how fast it gets dirty and then do the maintenance.
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.

Visit www.stevessewandvac.com for bags if you don't see them up on the site contact us. On the average you should change your bag once a month regardless of how full this will keep your vacuum from taking on odors of pets or whatever it is you may have sucked up. Also if you happened to have sucked up any food products they tend to start to grow things.

Greetings from GoVacuum.com,
It sounds like you may have a bad thermal switch inside the machine. Most vacuum cleaners have a switch connected to the motor, so if the vacuum cleaner is running hot, it will shut off to prevent any damage to your motor. You did all the right things by checking the bag, making sure the hose was NOT clogged, and replacing HEPA filter.
Most of the time on canister vacuums, the reason is caused by a clog in the hose, or somewhere in the powerhead. If you're sure that there is no clog anywhere, it is going to be the thermal switch on the motor.
Here's a link to the parts schematic for the Bosch upright vacuum. I hope it helps you in determining how to access the thermal switch. A word of warning to you before you try it, this is a very tough vacuum cleaner to work on, you may want to bring it in to a vacuum repair shop, as this is not an easy repair.
Here's the link;
Please let me know if you have any other questions,

You need to take apart the reel. The cord is wound over itself and kinked. Be careful taking apart because if it gets away from you, you will have to wind the spring by hand and it is difficult to do and frustrating.Good luck

If you turn the vacuum over there will be (4) screws that hold on the base cover for the roller brush. Remove the screws and the cover and you can get to the belt(s). You can get replacement belts here:
