Height adjustment won't work on Hoover windtunnel

\015 Height adjustment control - does not physically touch anything and cannot adjust setting\015

Answers :

In my experience, Hoover height adjustment are "stops" rather than being attached to an axel. Look for something that rould resemble a set of circular steps somewhere in the path the axel would take as it goes up and down. It is usually on the underside from the knob that sets the height. Each 'step' represents a height with the shortest step being the lowest setting from a certain perspective.

Brush Roll belt stops turning durring vacuuming on WindTunnel self-propelled, v belt is a little loose with handle down. Tensioning roll is engaged OK, but fully at the end of its travel. Replaced belts flat and v, but still stops turning even on high carpet setting when vacuuming. Carpet setting and height adjustment appears to be working OK, roll is clean and turns easily when out. Also turns easily until it engages the carpet. Self propel function works just fine.

I have a hoover windtunnel upright vacuum, It will not shut off and I have to unplug it to do so. If I take apart the upper handle and manually flip the internal switch it works just fine, only when using the external switch on the handle, wont shut off.


This is a common problem with this machine. The switch has too much resistance to be turned on and off with the switch button and rod. If you put in a new switch, ( # 28161075 ), your problem should be fixed. ... Vacuums

You will probably have to replace the cord winding mechanism. I have never had any luck trying to repair one.
