Belts get hot when fibers from carpet get wound arounf the belts mounting shaft. Best to take a razor and cut off any fibers so the belt doesn't get hot again

Carpet power head will not stay attached to telescoping wand


to answer your last statement, if you do not have a receipt, the warranty will go by the date ofyour serial number. the first 4 digits are the month and year. this model usually has a 1 year wty. the wand button may not be protruding as far due to dirt under the metal band. however you may still have an issue with the neck on the powerhead which will require shop service.

I have a WindTunnel Hoover vacuumn that is less than 1 year old. The on-off switch is worn out and the carpet height adjuster does not connect. Where is my closest service center? (So I can use my...


according to Hoover's web site the closest service center is MJB MAYTAG HOME APPL CENTER 418 BELTRAMI AVE NW
BEMIDJI MN 56601
218-751-2420 which appears to be over 100 miles from you. I have 3 Windtuunels and love them. They are relativing easy to repair. Most likely someone failed to place handle in the upright postion before sliding the carpet height. (My housekeepers hve done this numerous times.) If you or if you know someone that is handy, take the cover off and reassemble the slide switches (carpet height switch, moved out of place). For the on/off switch, disassemble the handle, order a new switch from Hoover's website, and replace it. The wires are easy to reattach and the switch simply snaps in. If by some chance you purchased the Windtunnel from Costco, they will take it back and refund you.

Self-Propelled WindTunnel by Hoover U6445906


· Sometimes grabs the carpet for no reason.
· Comes back too fast when I push it back.

I would advise you to ALWAYS to FIRST UNPLUG YOUR VACUUM before beginning any service procedure.
Self-Propelled WindTunnel by Hoover U6445906 Without knowing the brand name or model number you may have the height adjustment to low and the vacuum will say “bite down” on the carpet of which will make the belt burn and might leave marks on the carpet – and if you have a self-propelled vacuum it does come back fast if you because you have a transmission just like a car and you have to control the speed of the vacuum or because it may have a weak belt the vacuum will pull back easier – I really would like to know the brand name and model number so that I could accurately give a better answer . Recommended belt change for flat belt(s) are 4 to 6 months for better cleaning and one a year for a geared belt – both can stretch and lose their cleaning function
