Re: Hoover self-propelled windtunnel problems

It now works.  Here is what I did and not did not do.  When I replaced the actuator arm I did not get the metal bracket replaced correctly.  There is a metal "strap" bracket that holds the actuator arm in position.  On that metal strap there is a slot...here is the important part ...there is a projecting metal knob on the wheel just below the strap.  The metal knob must go in the slot on the metal strap for the drive function to work properly.  After I did that everything worked great.  I guess when the actuator arm broke that wheel keep rotating and I did not notice the knob on the wheel.  Thanks for all of the suggestions...just thought you would want to know how it turned out.

Thanks...replaced the belt...still not self propelled.  Do you think the cable where it attaches to the actuator arm should be adjusted again? Should I shorten the distance where the cable attaches to the actuator arm or lengthen it?  Any suggestions?

Model U6625900.  The self propelled feature stopped working.  As it turns out it had a broken actuator arm...common problem.  I replaced the actuator arm.  I marked the cable position on the cable so I would put it back the right way.  Still no self-propelled.  Tried tightening and loosening the cable still no self propelled.  Any suggestions?
