Vaccum overheating I have a hoover u5458-900 wind tunnel and the auto shot off has kicked in for overheat protection. i've cleaned the entire thing and let it sit like i was supposed to but it still won't fully turn on and stay on. it will turn on for a few minutes and then shut off and just cycle like that for a few times. is there anything i can do to fix this or should i just clean it more (if possible)?
Either the motor protector is bad, or you have a clog in the hose or the dirt inlet by the brush roll. Are the filters clean? It is also possible that there is a problem with the motor. ... Vacuums

Hepa filter does not turn on hoover wind tunnel vacuum model U6630900. It was working (turning) and I cleaned the filter and canister and now it no longer spins when the vacuum is running.
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
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

At the end of the brush you will see a hard rubber piece, at both ends, that holds it in place in the body of the vacuum.\015\012Add som ...

HI, my motorized brush barely turns.It makes a hot rubber smell. I took apart and noticed the spindle the belt turns on discolored from heat. Cleaned it, but still no turning of the brush.The vac is a hoover wind tunnel. As it moved accidentally touched the belt/ spindle and burned my hand a little. Very hot in area. Bright spark from motor noted. Was careful not to touch that part!

No suction My Hoover Wind Tunnel vacuum runs but there is no suction. The last two or three times I used it, it shut itself off after having a burning smell. When I unplug it for the suggested 30 minutes, the motor will run again but no suction. What is wrong?? Should I just buy a nve one? This one is 8 years old.

Have Hoover Wind Tunnel Sel Propelled vacuum. Had to put on new drive belt. Turn on unit and drive belt slides off the drive spindle.

Hoover Wind Tunnel 7500 Brush not Turning. I have replaced the Brush and the belt. The problem does not seem to be either to me. I believe might be a missing part. The place were the belt hooks on is a metal pole which never seems to grip the belt well. In fact it seems loose most of the time and slips on the brush, causing the belt to eventually burn up. Could there be a missing plastic or rubber piece meant to hold the belt taught on the metal pole?
