Question about Hoover Company Wind Tunnel U53019 Upright Vacuum

1 Answer

Hoover Wind Tunnel

Both of my belts work, however, it seems the roller won't roll. I have the switch turned to carpet and both belts are running, but burning while running because the roller doesn't want to roll. When we took it apart, we put it back together and when we put it back in, the end seems to screw off the roller when in motion - I was sure we put it back the way we took it out. We even checked the ball bearings and cleaned everything real well. Are we missing a part? Can you please explain to us how to put the roller back together correctly so we can get it to stay in place without unscrewing? Thank you!

What probably happened is you swapped end over end when you replaced the beater brush. anyway go to thehooverstore, find your machine and you'll see an exloded diagram of your machine.

Hoover wind tunnel u6445-900. my vacuum seems to have super suction on carpet. You have to DRAG the vacuum and PUSH it with great force to get it to move with the self propelled switch engaged.

It's an issue that the front roller isn't engaged. there's usually a belt connected to the roller on one side of it. That belt is connected to the same motor that develops the suction. You have to find that area and either pull the belt over the motor and/or the brush. Close it back up and turn it on again.

Brush not turning on my Hoover wind tunnel UH71214.

If you have a two speed roller (floor and carpet position on the switch) the power supply board has blown roller resistance.

Brush won't spin on hoover wind tunnel bag less upright when on carpet, belts are fine

The belts may look fine but may be stretched and worn. Replace them. Make sure brush spins free. Idler pulley should tighten belt tension when handle is released

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:

Hoover Windtunnel Belts

Hoover wind tunnel, brushes are not spinning. Belt seems loose but maybe that is normal.

The belt (one around the roller) will only engage the roller upon 2 conditions. the carpet switch needs to be in carpet and the machine needs to be tilted back. The other belt, may appear to be on, but can be stretched and also cause this issue, the recommended time to replace the belts are 9 - 12 months under normal use.

Hoover WindTunnel Self-Propelled V Belt

when you released the end to slide the new belt on it allows the tension roller to slide into the wrong position. Remove the top so that you can see the roller, at the left side of the roller mechanism there is a screw, loosen it enough to allow the roller to return to the correct position.
good luck

Edge of carpet went into carpet; was removed, but now all rollers on the unerside don't function.

You didn;'t say what the problem is, but I assume that the brush roll is not turning. Take of the cover over the brush roll, then you can get to the brush roll and the belt. The belt probably came off or broke. Best to replace the belt.

Problem with vacuum suction in upright position

Move the lever on the front of the machine to "carpet". It won't agitate on floor
