    If NOTHING is working on the vacuum cleaner, it has had time to cool off and still doesn't work, make sure the outlet has power, then check the power switch. It is not too difficult to change one if you are handy with tools. You must check what the part number for your particular model is, but our old wind tunnel Had a switch fail. Ours went bad after 15 years of use. CW Industries 16A Part GRS-2011-2019 worked on ours. It was on Amazon.com The wires had two pull off insulated brass connectors. There are videos on YouTube showing how to replace it.

Hi, it's Allie from Crucial Vacuum!

Your Hoover Windtunnel may have stopped working for several reasons. First, make sure that your unit is properly plugged into an electrical outlet and make sure the electrical outlet is working correctly. Vacuum units, and other appliances, protect themselves from sudden electrical charges, ups and downs. Make sure the electrical fuse and breaker are on, if not reset breaker.

Some units may heat up and will automatically shut themselves down to prevent fires. Allow your unit to cool down for 30 minutes while the thermal protector is automatically reset. Overheating, may have been caused by a clogged hose, dirty filters, full bags or a roller brush that is not running properly. All these situations compromise the unit's air flow and make the unit work harder, making it to heat up.

To avoid these situations and to keep your unit running at it's maximum capacity, make sure to change filters regularly (recommended every 3-6 months), clean your brush roll from any tangled hair strands or debris monthly (roller brushes are recommended to be replaced at least yearly), and replace belts every 6 months.

You can purchase direct your replacement belts, bags, roller brush and filters from Crucial Vacuum with free shipping and an exclusive 10% coupon for Fixya.com readers, use code: FIXYA10

SOURCE: How to change a belt

A very easy procedure!
Look at the front hood of the Purepower (where all the lettering is including the 1600 or whatever the model number and name is located at) and you'll see at the back two screws either side where the back wheels are. Unscrew these and then prise using your hand/fingers the floor selector dial knob off. Once that's done the hood will pop off and you can get into the roller brush and drive belt. Then simply lift out the roller brush and fit a new belt. 
This method is for all Hoover Purepower models and DustManager uprights.

SOURCE: carpet setting not working

there is a belt in the nozzle that is driven by a small motor in turn will drive the roller when set to carpet. did you completely dis-assemble the nozzle? ie, to remove the roller and clean the endcaps? this would also show the belt. The gear on the motor wears very easily and could also be worn. I would change the nozzle or get a new Flair. new nozzles cost about $25-$30.

The vacuum stopped working while i was using it...did all the troubleshooting tips.. still not working.


Sometimes the vacuum will overheat, if this happens the vacuum will shut down to protect it from damage.

Unplug the vacuum, and let it sit unused 30 minutes.

Please let me know if this has solved your problem.

Vacuum cleaner smells bad

My Vacuum cleaner smells bad. What can I do to stop that?

Hello,
I would advise you to ALWAYS to FIRST UNPLUG YOUR VACUUM before beginning any service procedure. Depending on the brand name and model # you should do a few things, try changing the bag and or change or clean the filter depending on what type of vacuum you have, a dirt cup model or a bag system. The vacuum cleaner dealers have Vacuum crystals that can be sprinkled down on the carpet and then you can pup the crystals from the carpet with your vacuum. If not I suggest that you take it in for a good and general cleaning – a lot of times the dirt and dust get built up under the hood and just sits there – especially if you have pets and it is a hard smell to get rid of unless you have it serviced or cleaned. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact your local vacuum cleaner dealer in your area. So if you need further assistance, please feel free to contact your local vacuum cleaner dealer in your area or in the yellow pages, or contact the factory phone number or website to further assist you with your questions.

Thanks, Don the Vac Man
Go Ahead. Use Us.
