Question about Hoover U5491-900 Bagged Upright Vacuum
I was vacuuming in one room and as I proceeded to the next the vacuum would not turn on. I've tried in multiple outlets, I let the vacuum cool and have changed the bag. I think I need to troubleshoot the On/Off switch, Cord, Motor and Thermal connector to determine the issue. However, I don't know how to break down the vacuum to check or what to look for to diagnose each. Can anyone help?

You have to remove the motor cover, There I believe 5 screw, take off the light lens and remove the screw holding the light. It should then pull off. You say you have power to the Vac, but do you have power to the motor. There also is a thermo by the motor, sometimes they open up, then the motor won't run.

S3765-040, power head would not run when the handle was elevated. Problem was with wiring from connecter plug on power head swivel into the power head itself, because of the design the wire tends to develop a short. Test it by turning on the vacuum, elevate the handle, then when it stops running move the visible part of the wiring with you foot/hand. If it starts/stops then you have a short. Replacement part was about $10.

My wife picked one up on the side of the road that someone had tossed. The power switch would not turn off. I took the two bolts out of the top part of the handle, and then removed the screws along the back. This will remove the required panels to access the On/Off switch. Once I found the actual on/off button, I found it to be frozen in the "ON" position. After manipulating it for a few minutes, I got the switch to work. This machine now operates great, and I now have a Hoover :)
