Question about Vacuums
My Hoover Windtunnel upright Idler arm assy. part number U6445 has crack running through it. So I ordered the part from a hoover dealer and it was shipped without instrutions on how to take out the crack idler and to replace the new idler arm assy. I have tried to get help help from Hoover. hopeless. Maybe you guys can help. thanks. Cindy G. from Gendive Mt. P.S. It is a long way to drive to find a Hoover repair person in our area.my email is firstname.lastname@example.org
Remove the bottom plate (4 screws), remove belts and brush roller. There may be 1 small screw in the center front of the vac under the brush roller. remove this one. If this is a bagless model you will also need to remove all of the back screws (torx) that hold the lower hose on. This needs to be removed to take the hood off. underneath on each side of the power drive assembly you will have 1 screw, remove them. there is a clip on each side that snaps the front on, push them out with a screwdriver. Then the hood is removed.

It sounds like you need to replace the actuator arm or the cable to it. Look for Hoover part 43143046 for a start. I've got a similar problem.

SOURCE: Hoover Windtunnel shuts off
I found the following solution on this website. I have searched for hours and finally found this solution, it works! I HAD the same problem after cleaning the filter mentioned below, it is now working like it was new.
yes this machine has a thermal protector in it to shut off the machine if it gets to hot, this is normal. if there is no clogs in the hoses or in the machine then you will need to wash the filter at the top of the machine. you will have to remove the dirt cup and at the top you should see a half moon orange, well inside of this piece is the washable filter, clean and let it dry completly before putting back into machine. if this gets dirty and has not been cleaned, you can lose alot of suction. in some cases if this filter is not cleaned it can cause the machine to overheat so bad that it can damage the motor.

There are a number of Hoover vacuums that are subject to a recall due to an overheating on/off switch. Check out this web site to see if your is included. You'll need the model number and serial number from the back of the unit. The manufacturer will direct you to an authorized repair center for a free replacement of the defective switch.
