My machine (Hoover Wind Tunnel - bagless) is only 1 yr. old. The agitator brush doesn't turn all the time. I know it's not supposed to turn when in the upright position. However, it only seems to work when I have the setting on high. When I stop, but have not put the machine in the upright position, it stops again and then slowly starts moving. Could the V-belt be worn out already? In the owner's manual it states that this belt is not normally replaced. The exact same thing happened with my old

The suction cap on this attachment is pulled out, as it should be. I have checked the vacuum over thoroguhly and there are no bloackages anywhere.

This vacuum is not picking up anymore when used as an upright, however it does still work very well when using the hose and attachments, I have looked at the vacuum but I cannot figure out where the clog could be.

My upright kenmore progressive vacuum will not suction up when using the sweeper. It will suction things when I use one of the tools.

If I press the intell clean on and off yellow button the noise may go away but it still does not work.

My Hoover stopped sucking! If I use the attachment for stairs that works just fine, but in the upright mode for carpet it won't **** at all.

The tube in the power head probably has either a clog or a leak/crack. Since the hose attachment works fine, then the hose should be clear. You may be able to clear it without much difficulty, but replacement should be done at the Hoover shop. ... Hoover F5872-900 SteamVac Wet/Dry Vacuum
