Having problems with your Hoover U5753-900 WindTunnel Bagless Upright Vacuum ?
Carpet Height Adjusment
\015 Sliding the height adjustment knob does not adjust the wheel height. From the underside, the tab, connected to the adjustable wheel plate, does not come in contact with the bottom of the sliding height adjuster. \015\012\015\012Help!\015
In addition to the tab that contacts the bottom of the slider, there are 2 protusions on the adjustable wheel plate that move through holes in the housing, but only when the handle is tilted to begin vacuuming. The wheel plate has a spring that forces the tab against the slider. As the handle is moved to the upright position, the protusions move back through the holes, taking the tab away from the slider and the wheel plate locks in its highest position. Therefore, the position of the slider has no effect while the handle is upright and locked. Hope this helps.

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.

How is the V-belt tension adjusted (Hoover Model U6439-900)or how do I know if the tension is correct? There seems to be a lot of "play" in the belt and I'm wondering if that is the reason the brush roll only turns as the wheels turn, regardless of the carpet height setting. And yes, the brush roll is set for carpet, not hard floor. Or is the cause of the problem something other than the V-belt? A new flat belt was installed when the machine was professionally serviced so I assume (?) that was a

There are two ways the belt has no tension: (1) when the handle is upright, a mechanical lever takes the drive tension off the belt, and (2) the brush roll lever setting you described.

How to take apart the Hoover U6437-900 to change the belt and clean it. I have the belts and I have removed several screws. It looks like the knobs for the wheel carpet height and carpet to floor selection are the problems but I can not figure out how to remove the knobs. Besides, I am not certain if this is the problem.

Hoover windtunnel Not sure of model number- but brush roller clamps down on carpet being vacuumed and stops spinning regardless of which of the 3 height selections is selected.
