Hoover Company Wind Tunnel U53019 Upright Vacuum\015 Both of my belts work, however, it seems the roller won’t roll. I have the switch turned to carpet and both belts are running, but burning while running because the roller doesn’t want to roll. When we took it apart, we put it back together and when we put it back in, the end seems to screw off the roller when in motion – I was sure we put it back the way we took it out. We even checked the ball bearings and cleaned everything real well. Are we missing a part? Can you please explain to us how to put the roller back together correctly so we can get it to stay in place without unscrewing? Thank you!\015

This isn`t helped by Hoover themselves being reluctant to admit where their manufacturing plants are located. As far as we can tell, Hoover products are designed and engineered in the USA. However, assembly for most (if not all) of their vacuums takes place in China.
The Hoover Company is a home appliance company founded in Ohio, United States.
How Do Wind Tunnels Work? Wind tunnels usually have powerful fans to move the air through the tube. The object being tested is placed in the tunnel so that it will not move. The air moving around the still object shows what would happen if the object were moving through the air.
A wind tunnel that is open on both ends and draws air from the room into the test section is called an open return tunnel. The tunnel at the lower right of the figure is an open return tunnel. A wind tunnel that is closed and re-circulates the air through the test section is called a closed return tunnel.
Suction Power

This is an indication of how good the vacuum cleaner is to clean – i.e. the work to be done. The suction power is measured in Watt (W) and is typically between 250 W and 450 W for machines with 1 motor.

The parts are shaped with a two-part steel mold called a die, which is lowered into an injection molding machine. Tiny plastic pellets are then poured into a heating vat and melted. The two parts of the mold then open enough for the plastic part to fall in a bin where the plastic hardens upon contact with air.
The HEPA filter is located under the dirt cup and under where it says HEPA. Twist the top counterclockwise to unlock the cap.
Check that the brush bar is clean and not damaged

If the cleaner becomes noisy or starts vibrating, it may be because some debris has got tangled around the brush roll or agitator situated in the bottom of the cleaner.

Hoover Wind Tunnel bagless- issue with turning on
ANSWER : Have you tried to plug the vaccuum in another outlet that is on another breaker? It could be the vaccuum tripped the breaker. Turn the breaker back on. The manual mentions the thermal protector could have been activated. If this happened it resets and your vac should run after 30 minutes. I have a Widepath Tempo and it has tripped the surge protector. If this is the problem try turning some things off that are also on that breaker/outlet, or unplug them when you use the vac.
