Having problems with your Vacuums ?

Hoover Windtunnel not picking up as well

\015 Hoover windtunnel doesnt seem as low to the ground, is there an adjustment or the brushes worn out? I also just chaged the belts but didnt change the brushes.\015

Answers :

There is a height adjustment on these vacuums and they are set to adjust in the "handle up" position". It will appear that the adjustment is doing nothing when the handle is up, but the setting will take affect when the handle is lowered.
\015\012You can check the brush length with a pen or pencil. Turn the machine over so that the brush is visible and run the pen or pencil flat across the bottom plate. Any where the brush is extending outward, your pencil should contact the bristle. If not, then the agitator should be replaced.
\015\012Also, check to make sure that the agitator is rotating freely and that the filters and bag are allowing for adequate suction. The machine will only pick up if the air flow is sufficient.

My Hoover U5491900 Anniversary Windtunnel will not pick up very well, there is good suction when I use the attachments, but when I use it on the floor it won't pick up much, what is wrong with it and how can I fix it?

No suction i have a hoover supreme wind tunnel vac and its relatively new and the suction, well......sucks. It wont pick anything up! I am extremely frustrated!

Which Kenmore vacuum cleaners are made by Panasonic? Are all of their direct drive machines made by Panasonic? We have a blue Hoover Windtunnel with the dirt sensor. It cleans well, but it is unbelievably noisy. I wondered if something was out of place and the brushes were hitting, but everything looks normal. We bought Kenmore models 36722 and 36724 and love them. I believe they were made by Panasonic. Our Kirby sits in the basement. Much heavier. These are quiet and clean well. I would like an

Good Morning, A friend recently gave me her Hoover windtunnel model U630-900 vacuum. It is a self propelled vac. It comes on but is hard to push and will not really pick up any dust particles on the carpet. It has a funny smell also. I saw where one of you Q & A you said to check the roller brush. I thought maybe a belt may be off or something, but I do not have a manual to know where to begin checking. Could you tell what to check and also if there is anywhere online to download the manua

Hoover WindTunnel S3765. The motor spins and the belt turns when I turn the brushes on, and the brushes will spin. The problem is that when I do this on carpet, the brushes stop spinning. As soon as I pull the "head" off the carpet, the brushes spin again. It's almost as if the vacuum suction is too great. I took the head apart and watched the motor turn the metal spindle that the belt rests on, and the belt turns as well.
