Have a hoover windtunnel platinum. I have changed the bag ( hepa Q bag) but the bag light wont reset. so the vaccum wont turn on. I have unpluged it and let it set for a while with the new bag in and repluged it in. I have checked the brushes and it is all clean but it will not reset. This only the second bag so it is a new machine I should not be having problems. Is there some sore of reset button I can hit.

Hoover UH70120 WindTunnel TSeries problems with the cord. im a tech savy guy and have been trying to fix a cord after it was pulled to far out and now wont auto retract, but just cant find a way to pull the cord rewind mechanism out to work on it. Any advice
You will probably have to replace the cord winding mechanism. I have never had any luck trying to repair one. Cord retracters are great when they work but it seems like they always go bad before too long. On many units you can't even replace the cord ...

Hoover WindTunnel S3765. The motor spins and the belt turns when I turn the brushes on, and the brushes will spin. The problem is that when I do this on carpet, the brushes stop spinning. As soon as I pull the "head" off the carpet, the brushes spin again. It's almost as if the vacuum suction is too great. I took the head apart and watched the motor turn the metal spindle that the belt rests on, and the belt turns as well.
The belt is stretched and needs replacement.(Belt # 38528036) . The brush is not turning against resistance. ... Hoover Vacuums

Hoover windtunnel t series belt is loose- roller brush doesnt turn. Its brand new belt is slipping. we bough new belts and putthem on same problem. Can not find solutio in manual.

Hoover F7431-900 my carpet shampooer/steam vac was working fine until the brushes at the bottom of it just miraculously stopped working. they wont spin at all. Is this a motor problem? perhaps a water flow problem? please write back if you can be of any help. thanks
If the screen is not dirty, and the flapper valve to the turbine inlet is open, then the problem is mostly a stuck turbine impeller. The turbine impeller on my F7431-900 has seized TWICE!! The shaft for the turbine is not made of stainless steel, t ... Hoover F7431-900 SteamVac Vacuum
Hoover wind tunnel upright self propelled. U6473-900. Brush does not work. Heard it was a 'brush controller' problem and can be fixed. Please tell me how.
Most likely the flat belt has stretched enough so as to not turn the pulley that in turn turns the brush roll using a V belt. Also there is a small idler wheel, if hook up, then it won't engage the V belt. ... Hoover Self-Propelled WindTunnel Bagless Upright VacuumVacuum
My Hoover nano brush has stopped working. This happened when we first bought it and the problem fixed itself randomly. Now it's happening again. Any help?

The rotary brushes on my Windtunnel V2 won't spin. I wasn't having any problems just, boom, no more spinning. I've had to clean hair and other stuff from them in the past. At that time, they wanted to move and couldn't. Now, I turn the machine on, and they don't move but make a loud noise. What do I need to do?

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?
Hi There,\015\012\015\012When a vacuum cleaner smokes, it is usually only one of two possible problems.\015\012\015\012It could either be that your motor burned up, or that your belts burned. The belts on this particular mod ... Hoover Self-Propelled WindTunnel Bagless Upright VacuumVacuum
I have a Hoover Windtunnel Farrington upright model U6431-900 It has worked flawlessly until last week. The roller brush has stopped turning and I believe it is the belt that has broken but I am not sure how to remove the cover to inspect it and replace the belt if that is the problem. Please inform me how to perform the operation and what I should I look for? Is there a site with a diagram on how to replace said parts? Thanks for any and all helpful info that you can supply me with. Larry

I have a Hoover SteamVac F5914-900 that I purchased approx 6 mos ago. It just started having the following problem. When I turn the cleaner on there is a sudden burst of solution/foam that emits out to both sides from behind the brushes. How can I fix this??
Mine has been doing that occasionally, and I have ordered the pump assembly, #H43582003 which several have suggested is where the problem is. This leak, along with loss of solution going to the hand tool, seems to indicate that the pump is not workin ... Hoover V1 SteamVac SpinScrub Vacuum
We have a new hoover bagless that is a couple months old. The pet hair attachment stopped working. I disassembled it found lots of hair wound around the various rollers and removed - painstakingly thorough i might add. Problem is the brush still wont spin and now the belt seems loose - I think I put it all back together correctly but wondering if there is a trick to this?
Without the model number, I can't look it up, but this has a 1 years warranty on it, maybe take it to a warranty shop. Just take proof of purchase, model and serial numbers. ... Vacuums
