The best thing about this item is that you can switch from hardfloor to carpet with a quick press on the handle. I like how accessories stow in the compartment and that there is an auto cord. The equipment was very easy to assemble. The overall weight is good, heavy to feel durable but light enough to carry around with one arm and up the stairs. Things that could be better. The bottom part of the main head could be constructed better for hardfloors. I feel like the plastic scratches the floor slightly. Maybe the wheels need to be rubber? There is a hardloor brush head that you can replace the main head with but then you lose out on the convenience of switching quickly from floor to carpet. The cord could be longer. The dirt container is a pain as with all bagless vacuums. The container is a bit small. I can only do 2 runs through my house before the dirt reaches the max line. Because I don't like to empty it out, I sometimes reach for the old fashion broom for the kitchen floor to avoid filling the canister so quickly.

We have been faithful owners of Hoover for over 20 years but this product leaves our relationship with doubts. Vacuuming our home twice a week shouldn't result in the carpet tool motor weakening after 2 years of use, resulting in repeated stalling out (with the belt subsequently coming loose and needing repair). Replacing the belt and carpet brush did not fix the problem.

Comments about Hoover WindTunnel Electronic Bagless Vacuum Cleaner:
5 years of hard use and good as new! Just keep the dust bucket clean, the filter clean and enjoy this little work horse.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

Great vacuum......when it works!
from Fairfield, CT
This is a really good vacuum....when it works. Unfortunately, we have had some serious issues with the belt staying on. It seems to fall off every 3-5 times we use the vacuum. We have replaced the belt quite a few times but it has made no difference. It seems to work well for a bit and then we are back to the same issues. It's a shame. When the vacuum is working, it really does a great job.
This vacuum sucks.. HAHAHA (good)
from New Jersey, United States
I purchased this vac in Dec of 2010, its still performing like it was new. super great suction. I used it on my bare floors, carpets and furniture. You need to change your filter for the best suction, I take the top off and "bang" the dirt out of the filter if I dont have a new one handy. just tap it on a hard surface and you will see the dust and debris fall out of the folds. Wash canister to keep any odors from forming.
This machine is powerful and works well for about 5 minutes. The belt slips off constantly. Doesn't matter if it is shag, hard floor or a throw rug! I am very frustrated.
best vaccum I have used.
from Ohio, United States
I have had this unit for over 6 years. I have taken it in to be serviced once (only because someone accidentally used it without the filter attached) and am finally needing to replace the brush roll. I can easily see getting several more years of service out of this machine whereas cheaper upright brands were unreliable at only 2 years old. I certainly hope the quality of hoover machines is at this same level when I need a replacement.

I have had this vacuum for at least 5 years now and it still works great and I've never had a single problem with it. I really love the flexibility of being able to take apart the different sections of the hose to customize it for the task at hand (also great if something gets stuck in there!). The only downside (and the reason I didn't give it 5 stars), is that the filter is not the easiest to clean - it makes a huge dusty mess! I usually have to take it outside to clean, which is not so great in the winter. Needless to say, I don't clean the filter every time I use it and hardly ever at all during the winter months. Incidentally, I have never ever replaced the filter as recommended and still no problems. If you have severe allergies I'd probably stay away from this vac unless you have someone else to clean the filter for you. I've put this vac through a lot as I have a dog that sheds big hairballs everywhere and the vac has lasted and lasted. Very happy with it though I have somehow misplaced the little handheld brush attachment that works so well on my couch...but that's my problem. :-)

Same story-Same vacuum
from Fort Lauderdale, FL
Our vacuum isn't that old, maybe 2 years, and the carpet cleaner part quit working, just like a lot of these other posts said. I was looking on line to fix it, but it's half the price of a new one! Why can't things be made to last? I believe this model is faulty, esp if a lot of others had the same problem!!! Very Frustrating!!!
Great except power head/belt issue!
from Charleston, SC
I bought this and was happy w/it almost 2 years; called the company and they sent me a new belt which i tried (AFTER UNSCREWING 7 screws) and it worked for a few moments and then the belt was off again. I would be willing to try a new belt one more time in case that one was the wrong one or a fluke experience.
Ok to Good Vac
By 5yr vacuum user...
Purchased this vacuum twice. First vacuum had an electrical problem a year after purchasing (and before the recall.) Took it back and replaced with the exact same one. Have now had it for 5 years and I still like it. Works well but filter clogs easily. And it does loose suction like another review said. You have to stay on top of it all the time. Power cord does seem a little short but I work around that and bonus is does retract. That's an extremely nice feature. It does take a lots of clicks & pushes to get to the right setting like another reviewer mentioned to start it. Would I buy it again? Yes, I would. I just wouldn't pay the same price.
