WindTunnel HEPA Filter won't spin

\015 I have a Hoover WindTunnel 2 Bagless with the lifetime HEPA Filter. The vacuum wasn't picking up so good, and i noticed that the HEPA Filter was totally clogged! I was able to clean it and now it won't spin??? Which is probably why it got clogged in the first place.\015\012\015\012Any assistance is greatly appreciated!\015

\015\012It involves taking apart the vacuum HEPA area. All screws are the same size. There are a LOT of 'em. Really straightforward putting it back together too.
\015\012
\015\012ok, once you take the HEPA canister area off the vacuum, careful with the wires! Unplug them from the controller board. You open up the HEPA chamber by removing more screws until you see where the motor that turns the filter is mounted on the side. Remove motor from the green chamber. Note where the washer goes. Once the motor is off, you'll see that the center hub that drives the HEPA filter is rounded out. What I did was jam little bits of aluminum from a pop can into the space between the circle and the square to force the walls back to square. I started by folding a little piece of aluminum over and over so it was about three layers thick. Jammed that in. That wasn't quite enough thickness so I shoved another piece with it. If you can find something that is about 4 times the thickness of a pop can aluminum, that'd probably work too. Slight wedge shape on the tip would help. Any sort of tiny shim.

\015\012To test your work, just put a couple of holder screws into the HEPA cannister housing, plug in the cover/switch, plug in the HEPA moter. Turn it on for a few seconds to make sure the filter turns. Then you can add more thickness to the hub or put things back together.
I had the same problem and I did the action described in solution #2 but the filter stopped rotating after aabout 5 minutes of vacuuming. I then went back in to the HEPA filter and removed the black scrapper piece (not the little black clicker shaft thing) and so for it is still working. One additional remark on the motor. The plastic rotator the turns the filter has 3 sections. Two slice half moon slots and one rectangle slot that the filter shaft fits into. I cut and shaped a popcycle stick and inserted one into each of the half moon slots to firm up the fit of the rectangle slot. That has given a less flexible area to hold the HEPA filter shaft. This is good.

Hoover Windtunnel T-Series UH20700 9 mos old. Keeps clogging in hose just above the beater brush assembly. I think it clogs because the suction is too weak to pull much through. Primary filter is clean and HEPA filter is replaced. Even when everything is unclogged, suction is weak compared to another unit (same model) that a friend has. Any ideas?

The part you refer to is not the HEPA filter. It's a very common misconception that that part spins - it looks like it when there's dust whirling around it. In fact, it does not spin - there are no visible moving parts. ... Hoover U6630-900 WindTunnel Bagless Upright Vacuum

I have Hoover Widepath Bagless 12 Amp Windtunnel vacuum. Yesterday I was vacuuming and smelled smoke and it shut itself off. Today I cleaned out the filters (they weren't bad) made sure nothing was obstructing the hoses or the spinning brush part. It turned on for 1 second, smells like smoke somewhere from the bottom and now won't turn back on so I don't know if anything is spinning or not. What can I do to fix this myself?
