I had the same problem with the Hover windtunnel. All I had to do was remove the two screws holding on the handle and then pull the handle off pulling horizontal to the ground. Then I manually turned to swith off. Check it to make sure the switch was working and then put the handle pack on with the swith in the off position and all worked ok.

I have a hoover windtunnel upright vacuum, It will not shut off and I have to unplug it to do so. If I take apart the upper handle and manually flip the internal switch it works just fine, only when using...


This is a common problem with this machine. The switch has too much resistance to be turned on and off with the switch button and rod. If you put in a new switch, ( # 28161075 ), your problem should be fixed.

Windtunnel bagless vaccum model uh6000 on/off switch no longer working, must plug/unplug unit to use. Can switch be replaced?


Hi,

Yes they can be replaced and are relatively easy to fit. In my opinion, Hoover are one of the best vacuum manufacturers when it comes to obtaining spares and you should have no problem getting one. I did a (very quick) search and this switch apparently fits all Windtunnel Hoovers:

If this doesn't look like your switch, I suggest calling the supplier to verify which part you need for your model. If you'd rather get one fitted for you, any competent appliance enginner or an authorised Hoover service centre should be able to obtain and fit the part easily. I wouldn't pay more than $20-25 in total as they take about 5-10 minutes to fit, max.

Wont shut Off


its the power switch, hoover has had that problem for years. I'd take it to a vac repair shop, sometimes the wires that connect to the switch get burnt as well and should be replaced.

I have a Hoover Windtunnel model U5462. Plugged in, turned on, it popped and then no power at all. Not circuit breaker in house. Does the unit have a fuse or something similar?


does it have a headlight and does it work? if so then unplug the vacuum and turn the brushroller by hand a few times.then plug it back in,if it works then your motor might be bad.you can try to spray a little wd40 into the switch then.work the switch back and forth a few times first to get the lubricant worked in to the switch .try to turn it on now.see if you have any cuts in the cord.also see if the cord is pulled out of the vacuum .if so you might have a wire unplugged inside the base of the vacuum

Hover mach 4 vaccum


usually caused from being plugged, so first find the plug and clear it. The motor has an automatic reset, should restart after about 30 minutes, if it continues to shut off, there is still a plug.
