Hoover S3639 WindTunnel Bagged Canister Vacuum\015 Have a self propelled Hoover Windtunnel. Part of this big plastic piece cracked so the hand release pedal slips allowing the whole handle to fall to the ground………. very annoying. I bought a new main body and foot pedal but I’ll be darned if I can figure how to get the main body off. I had it taken apart on the floor the other day but something still was holding it tight. Any help?:)\015

Dump the Dust

If your vacuum has a disposable bag, remove and discard it. For vacuums that use a plastic canister, remove the bin and dump the contents in the trash. Disassemble as much of the dust cup as possible for easier and more thorough cleaning.

To fix a clog in the hose, feed one end into a garbage bag, and poke the other end with the back of a mop pole, until you push the clog material out into the garbage bag. To fix a clog in the vacuum, whether it is a canister or bag, use your finger to feel for a clog. Pull as much of it out as you can and discard.
Attachments are quite easy to clean – just fill a sink or bucket with warm water and about a teaspoon of dish soap and drop them in. For any attachment that has hair stuck in it, you can use your cleaning toothbrush to brush it away.
Some attachments may have a “Release” button–if so, hold down the button while sliding the attachment off. The back of the vacuum has slots to hold up to two vacuum attachments. To store, simply place the attachment onto the circular slots.
Empty the vacuum cleaner, discard the contents in the outside trash and use an anti-bacterial wipe to clean the vacuum. Let it dry thoroughly. If your manufacturer says your vacuum cannister is washable, wash it out with warm, soapy water and then rinse it and let it dry.
Neglect your vacuum filter bags, and you`ll swiftly lose suction power. This, in turn, places unnecessary strain on your vacuum`s motor. Eventually, your vacuum will become a lot more difficult to maneuver, not to mention less effective at cleaning your rugs, carpeting, or other surfaces.
Therefore, we recommend that you clean your vacuum seal bags well after each use. Here is a step by step guide to how to do it best and what with: First, pour in some commercial dishwashing liquid and warm water and gently swirl around the bag. Then clean the bag with a suitable sponge or brush.
There are two approaches to take with this question: 1) Replacing an existing central vacuum system and 2) Replacing the use of an upright or portable vacuum cleaner. Central vacuums have many benefits, and their cost is affordable.

Hoover Windtunnel My Hoover Windtunnel is 3 years old. It worked great until yesterday when it lost all suction. I have followed the manual to trouble shoot any possible clogs and could find none. Then I noticed that when I remove the dirt collection cup and held my hand over the vent the suction is fine and strong. So… I replaced the hepa filter thinking that might be the problem. That didnt’ work. The motor runs fine. The suction without the dirt cup inserted is strong. As soon as you insert
ANSWER : Either the hose has a clog, or the inlet down by the belt is clogged. Is there suction at the end of the hose, if not then it is clogged. If there is suction, then it has to be clogged down below by the brush roll, check that inlet. There also is a filter at the bottom where the dirt cup (and bag) is, check it also.

ANSWER : 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.

How do you remove the Handle from the Hoover Windtunnel Deluxe to replace the switch?
ANSWER : Removing the handle assembly should be easy after removal of the two screws. It may be binding or hanging up on the self-propel cable…or the plastic may just be stuck/binding. Note that the handle slides in and out of the vacuum unit along the same axis as the two screws (i.e. slides straight off the back towards you when you are standing behind the vacuum). Try to pry it off gently w/thin-bladed screwdriver or butter knife (careful now!). Not sure about the smoking issue but you may have a severely plugged filter and the unit is overheating as a result. Check that out immediately/first to avoid fire or expensive motor burnout.

My Sebo hoover trips the house mains sockets every time I switch it on, yet doesn’t trip the kitchen mains. Have replaced filters/bag to reduce load but still no good. What should I be investigating in the hoover? Thanks
ANSWER : Hello,
It sounds like your vacuum is fine if it works when plugged in the kitchen outlet. It is tripping the breaker switch in the other room because the circuit is overloaded (too many things plugged in this circuit). Try unplugging some things in that room and try your vacuum again.
If it only trips when using one particular outlet, then the outlet should be replaced. I would recommend having an electrician check your wiring out.

Hope this helps

ANSWER : No, follow the directions to replacing the switch and you should be good. if you got the kit then splice the wires and replace them with the wires profied and the wire nuts, you should be good.
