Accompanied by a powered hand tool for stairs and upholstery and equipped with Hoover's powerful WindTunnel technology for thorough cleaning, this canister vacuum's motorized floor nozzle power-cleans carpets with a two-brush agitator that switches off for bare-floors. This is a full-size, 1440-watt vacuum, with a 15-inch cleaning path, edge groomers, easy-rolling wheels, a 6-foot swivel hose, and two chrome wands that extend 37-1/2 inches for the onboard tools: dusting brush, furniture nozzle, crevice tool, and hard-floor tool. Other features include a foot-pedal-activated rewind for the 25-foot cord, a full-bag indicator-light, and allergen-filtration disposable bags to reduce dust mites and pollen. A foot-pedal turns the vacuum on and off, and the 20-by-11-1/2-by-11-inch canister stands on end for compact storage. The vacuum comes with a 1-year warranty against defects. --Fred Brack

It is powered by the air flow, so if you push hard it stops spinning.

I decided to purchase a canister vacuum after moving into a home that had a combination of hard surface (wood, tile, linoleum) and carpeted floors. After much research, I chose this model based on both product reviews and specific model features.
Overall, I am very satisfied with this vacuum. The suction power is more than adequate for all jobs. I am especially impressed with the hard floor attachment which vacuums in both forward and backward strokes unlike some hard floor attachments which tend to push dirt around. In addition, the handheld attachment includes a rotating brush similar to floor attachments which makes vacuuming stairs very easy and does a much better job than attachments that only provide suction. Finally, the upholstery attachment with soft rubber comb works very well, especially for the collection of hard-to-lift lint and dog hair.
The one negative to this vacuum, possibly inherent in all canister vacuums, is that the carpeting attachment does not have enough weight to firmly press the agitator into the carpeting as compared to a standard upright vacuum. However, I believe some of my dissatisfaction is due to the fact that I have berber carpeting which is known to be difficult to vacuum. This carpet attachment does an acceptable job but I do find that I can continue to remove a small amount of dirt with my upright vacuum immediately after using this carpet attachment.
All in all, I am very satisfied with this vacuum and continue to utilize it as my primary vacuum. This model also balances well on stairs and is lightweight and easy to carry. I would recommend this vacuum to anyone who has a combination of floor surfaces in their home.

I had the next model down Hoover Windtunnel S3630. I think the main difference between the S3639 and S3630 is that the Plus model has the mini power hand tool. We had the vacuum for a little less than a year. The machine had all the good features: on/ off switch for power nozzle, 4 main attachments, added filter for better filtration, covered tool storage, doubled brushed edge cleaning along with special edge groomers- this makes it a little harder to push but it does an excellent job along walls. The machine was convenient to use it had very good suction for cleaning and a high speed power brush that deep cleaned. I don't know why this is but the vacuum was moody, somedays it cleaned well, and others it seemed like I was sweeping the carpet and not sucking up. The vacuum would leave a line of dog hair behind the nozzle entrance that was visible upon moving the power head forward. We did everything: new bags, new belts, checked the brushes, and since it was under warranty we took it to the Hoover Service Center but they found nothing wrong with it. Our cheaper model the Hoover Powermax cleaned hair much better. You could tell that it was deep cleaning like the windtunnel design is supposed to help with but it was cleaning the dog hair. After getting tired of it not getting hair we returned to the company and got our money back, Hoover was very cooperative customer service wise. We now have a Hoover Powermax Runabout that works very well and cost ... less. See my report under the Powermax Deluxe S3607. Our windtunnel might have been a lemon but don't know can't really recommend unless you have hard floors or need a good attachment canister.

Well, I expected a better quality machine from Hoover. Plastic wheels and axles, plastic hinges on the lids and suspiciously weak plastic latches on the wands. I don't expect these to last much beyond the warranty period, if that long. The headlight does not illuminate the floor. The hose connector on top of the machine does not even begin to swivel smoothly. It tends to bind, causing the vacuum to wander erratically everytime the hose is moved. The lack of a swivel mechanism on the tool end is also unfortunate because this almost guarantees that the hose will kink, twist and try to tie itself into knots. There is a strange preset angle moulded into the hand grip (remember it does not swivel). This makes for unnatural and uncomfortable arm and wrist positions while maneuvering various cleaning attachments into position. To be fair the suction power appears to be very good. I wrote to Hoover voicing my concerns (in far greater detail than this review) but only received a form letter that did not address any of my issues. If a product is "Made in USA", then it seems fair to expect better quality.

I orderd this vacuum to replace an old hoover that I thought was worn out. Well, my "worn out" canister vacuum is much MUCH better than this "new" model. The transparent iMac look and the poor performance reminds you of a Fisher-Price toy vacuum rather than a real model. The fancy brush attachment is "powered" only by suction, so it STOPS spinning/brushing as soon as it comes in contact with whatever surface you are trying to clean. The big powered brush head couldn't vacuum cat hair off a low pile rug. After vacumming for three times as long, I was able to do a better job in less time and get the rugs visably cleaner with my old worn out Hoover canister. This new iVac model performs FAR worse than my old Hoover.
