I have a Hoover WindTunnel, Self-propelled model, and it was working great until I ran over a portion of the cord, then it started making a bad noise and I noticed the roller is not moving consistently...I suspect I may have stetched the V-Belt...do you think so?
The V belt usually wears down first. Remove the roller and belt to visually check for wear and belt material in the roller pulley. I would change the flat belt as well. Also, replace the cord if any wires are exposed ... Hoover U6437-900 / U6439-900 Windtunnel Bagged Upright Vacuum

On my hover U6616-900 the self propell work fine on the med setting on med height carpet, but when I go to low height carpet and height set on med the self propell does not pull the vacuum and it is hard to push.

Hoover 6485-900 self propelled will not roll. Self propel switch seems flimsy and I can't tell if it's working. New vac used about five times. I can see a wire moving down near the rollers when I engage the self propel but the wheels don't turn. Thanks for any assistance you can provide.
Hoover Upright Bagless WindTunnel does not self propel (U6625-900). Belts are new, Brush turns strongly. Wheels propel forward very weakly and do not reverse when the handle is pulled backward. Is there a mechanical link from the self propel switch to the "transmission" ? Are there any gears that could be worn or not engaging properly?

I have a Dirt Devil Vision self-propelled vacuum cleaner. Recently, the self-propelled feature is stuck in the backward mode, so it only goes backwards!

Hoover U6637-960 the self propel is not not working.

If both self propel and roller not spinning then most likely it is the wide flat belt broken or off. 4 screws on the bottom should gain you access to the belt area. another issue for this model series is a worn pulley on the rol ...
