Having problems with your Hoover U6630-900 WindTunnel Bagless Upright Vacuum ?
Loss os self propel and suction??
\015 I noticed in the past couple of cleanings that my vacuum doesnt seem to pick up anything except for when i use the attachments and also it seems to take alot f effort to move the vacuum across the carpet...\015
Mine does the same thing. There is no suction. I found that there is a door that opens when you tilt the handle in the down possition. I think there should be a spring in place so it can open. Until I find a replacement spring I have to open the door manually throught the opening under the light.
Your belts are worn out. These belts should be replaced once a year.

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.
I can help you out only if you will let me know the front width of the machine. Alongwith the height which you wan't to give raise. KIndly give the width and elevation in cms. ... Hoover Self-Propelled WindTunnel Bagless Upright VacuumVacuum
Bad smell after using my windtunnel for a couple of minutes i noticed an odd smell. i turned it over and checked, the belts are fine but i cleaned out the hair anyway. after doing that the self propel seems to struggle and it is hard to push. when i look through the window on the top i can see the brush spinning freely but then when i push it, it slows down dramatically and then picks up again. the suction is fine. what do you recommend?
It may be the roller bearings? ... Hoover U5450-900 Windtunnel Supreme Bagged Upright Vacuum

Hoover 6485-900 self propelled will not roll. Self propel switch seems flimsy and I can't tell if it's working. New vac used about five times. I can see a wire moving down near the rollers when I engage the self propel but the wheels don't turn. Thanks for any assistance you can provide.
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. Also if I raise the height to the highest setting the self propell works correctly and appears to clen. Any ideas? S/N 090400184555, think this vacuum is maybe 5 years old and my wife uses it lots. Should I think of maybe a complete overhaul or a replacement at this time?
This is a typical problem you are describing. I would recommend you change the belts, this will resolve the "hard to push" and most likely resove your issues. based on the s/n given you maching was made on sept 2004. ... Hoover U6616-900 WindTunnel Bagless Upright Vacuum

I have a Dirt Devil Vision self-propelled vacuum cleaner. Recently, the self-propelled feature is stuck in the backward mode, so it only goes backwards!

Hoover Upright Bagless WindTunnel does not self propel (U6625-900). Belts are new, Brush turns strongly. Wheels propel forward very weakly and do not reverse when the handle is pulled backward.
