Having problems with your Vacuums ?
Hoover Wind Tunnel Upright Self-Propelled
\015 Hi, I have the above vacuum and I have LOTS of suction with the hose and absolutely NONE with the upright. All belts are fine, no obstructions anywhere, dirt cup, filter and pre-filter all in place and working properly. When the dirt cup is removed there is LOTS of suction if I hold my hand over the intake. Wondering what part the idler arm assembly plays in the function of a bagless upright and if I should try replacing that part......thanks ! Barb\015
Thanks to reddevil6. Sure enough it was the belt. What I did was take off the belt and flipped it over, worked like a charm. Since it was stretched on one side the other side was still ok. Still need a new, but s aved me a trip to the store!
How do I get the top off of my Hoover Self Propelled bagless vacuum? My husband needs to change something in there?

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.

I have 2 Hoover Wind Tunnel-self propelled bagged vacuums-U6433-900 model.The roller bar does not agitate, the self propelled feature does not work and, in general, the vacuum is not performing well.

On our new carpet (which is not that thick but thicker than the old) I can't set the carpet thickness high enough. The suction really grabs the carpet and bogs down my self-propelled wind-tunnel Hoover. I then have to push down on the handle to tilt the front up. The thickness setting is as high as it will go. Is there some way that I can further adjust this. The machine is about eight years old.
