Hoover windtunnel Self-propelled - brush roll stops

\015 There isn't enough tension on the brush roll. Not sure if it is the spring, brush roll, or wheel. Has anyone had this problem and what was the fix? Not sure which to replace first. Thanks\015

Answers :

There is a idler wheel that will drive the V belt, sometimes they jam and you just have to reach in, push and make sure if comes in contact with the belt. Alot of times tho it is the other flat belt, 38528035 that will stretch and can cause you to have problems with the brush roll not turning.

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.

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?

Just replaced the belts on my Hoover Windtunnel II self-propelled vacuum. The brushes are now turning ok, but the self propelled feature is not working. Squeals when when you lock it in the upright position.

Folks, My wife and I own a three-year-old Hoover U6434-900 self-propelled "Wind Tunnel" upright vacuum cleaner. The problem is that, even on the highest setting (front-end as high as possible), it gets bogged-down in even shallow pile carpet to the point that the brush stops. I've cleaned the machine thoroughly, pulling hair, thread, dental floss and such from the brush (and everywhere else), including unscrewing the brush end caps and pulling out the cat hair mats which formed in there.


Check to see if the V belt sits too deep in the brushroll groove, if it sits too deep you will need to replace the brushroll. the top of the belt should be about flush with the brushroll. also you have to take the screws out of the self propelled uni ... Vacuums

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

Both belts are in good shape, I cleaned the brush roll and it is free of debris, the setting is on carpet and the brush roll still will not turn.
