    How do you replace the belts?
    Is the 40201170 the correct belt to replace it with?

    I have the 6634-900 model. I bought it at Target, about a year ago, brand new in the box. I have had trouble with the self-propelled option not working, and the on-off switch does not work. But, the real problem is the roller does not spin. It will roll if I push it sometimes. And the suction is good, so it picks up somethings in its path. I just spoke with Hoover, and I have to produce the receipt, take it to a local dealer, and if it is out of warranty, I am looking at a minimum bill of $50-75 and higher.

    Out of frustration last night, wanting to vacuum....I took apart the handle and re-aligned the on-off switch and positioned the self-propelled option in the off position and tape it, on the outside, so it would not move. Now, the vacuum will turn on and off and I am not going to use the self-propelled option. Soooooooo frustrating. And what a dirty job..ugh.

    The repair store said because the little v-shaped belt looks shiny on the side, it might be caused by a pulley switch not operating...where is the pulley switch located?

Mine does the same thing. There is no suction. I found that there is a door that opens when you tilt the handle in the down possition. I think there should be a spring in place so it can open. Until I find a replacement spring I have to open the door manually throught the opening under the light.

Your belts are worn out. These belts should be replaced once a year.

If the belt is stretched it will not pick up properly. Try replacing the belt first. Belts should be replaced at least twice per year.

In order to have suction you need air flow.Essentialy,a vacuum cleaner is trying to create a vacuum the whole time it's on.Just because the beater bar turns doesn't have anything to do with the suction.That is created inside the canister.You have an obstruction in the hose anywhere between the motor and the power brush.

I have a Hoover Wind Tunnel Self propelled 12amp. There seems to be very little suction. I have cleaned the hoses and filters but still not much suction. any ideas? thanks.

Make sure all filters are cleaned out and entry ways are clear of all debris. Remove hose and check for blockage. Usually the low suction can be remedied when all filters are cleaned. Hope this works for you.
