No suction on Hoover Wind Tunnel.

My Hoover Windtunnel does not have any suction. I bought it about a month ago and it worked good literally one day. I've cleaned the filters in the tunnel and the filter under the tunnel. Any suggestions before I trash it and go back to the easy bag vacuum?

Greetings from GoVacuum.com,

First this is a common problem on ALL bagless vacuum cleaners. Usually it takes longer then 1 day however.

Is there no suction in the suction hose, or is it not suctioning from the floor?

Most people buy a bagless vacuum once, then return to a bagged one after their bad experience, you are not alone!

Please give me the model number to your Hoover, (found on the bottom or the back of the vacuum on a foil label).

Thanks,

Wind tunnel t series vacuum won't turn on


I had the same problem and used a tool to clean out the suction tube on my Windtunnel Series T. It was full of junk packed in tight. After cleaning it out there's no more turning off or overheating. It actually works better than when I first got it (used from a friend).

How do you change the Hoover wind tunnel belts?


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:

I bought a Hoover Wind Tunnel in January 2008. At first it worked great though very noisy. Now it will not pick up small fuzz on medium shag carpeting. I have checked the bag, the filter, the belt, and obstructions and there are none. Plus the noise level has increased. What is wrong?
I am very dissatisfied.


Hello,
I would advise you to ALWAYS to FIRST UNPLUG YOUR VACUUM before beginning any service procedure.
Sorry you are having a problem, using the Hoover Windtunnel is a very good vacuum. Reading youre description, the belt is one of the main reasons you are not picking up the small fuzz on a medium shag carpeting. The belt change on the average , if you have one or 2 belts should be changed every 4 to 6 months as a rule, and the brushes need to be in good shape as well, if those two are working well you may have a bad seal on the motor or a broken fan blade(s) and that would decrease suction and you would need to replace the fan. Also check the gaskets if they are broken or damaged or pinched and letting air through the suction will leak out. These are some of the items to check for, so feel free to contact your local vac dealer. 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.

Hoover Wind tunnel supreme, loss of suction
posted by bazballfan on May 01, 2008
Hello, I purchased two of these models in late 2007 and after changing the bags on each of them I have little to no suction with the vacuum. The hose is fine and I have taken them apart and there is no obstruction in the hose or in the base.
These worked so well and now they don't do anything. The bag isn't filling much and the simplest things can’t be vacuumed up
Please help me to fix this

Sorry you are having a problem, it sounds lie you have done almost everything, but just in review it could be some of these problems:
Belt change – every 4 to 6 months
Are the brushes in good shape
Where does your suction drop off
Is the bottom plate securely on the bottom
Are there any gaskets that are broken or leaking
Is the bag installed securely
Did you check for any clogs or obstructions
Is the filter clean
Feel free to contact your local vac dealer in your area.
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.

Check the hose to make sure it isn't clogged. But if the model number is different then the one above your post, U6437-900, then let me know.

Do you have suction at the hose end, if you do then it may be clogged at the inlet by the brush roll. Is the filter cartridge clean? If it is clogged and air can't pass thru it, then you will have no or low suction. Might also check the belt to make sure it is turning.
