Question about Hoover U6437-900 / U6439-900 Windtunnel Bagged Upright Vacuum
Tried to switch hard/carpet knob on 6425-900 when handle was down --> black plastic knob broke off. But the metal post is still sticking up and works if I slide it for hard floor or carpet. I got a new knob to put on, but how does it go on? Metal post wants to slide down and disappear into housing if I try to push knob on. Help!

In addition to the tab that contacts the bottom of the slider, there are 2 protusions on the adjustable wheel plate that move through holes in the housing, but only when the handle is tilted to begin vacuuming. The wheel plate has a spring that forces the tab against the slider. As the handle is moved to the upright position, the protusions move back through the holes, taking the tab away from the slider and the wheel plate locks in its highest position. Therefore, the position of the slider has no effect while the handle is upright and locked. Hope this helps.

Check to make sure you hear the vac. motor is running when in that position. The switch in the handle could be bad if it is not.

Remove the bottom plate (4 screws), remove belts and brush roller. There may be 1 small screw in the center front of the vac under the brush roller. remove this one. If this is a bagless model you will also need to remove all of the back screws (torx) that hold the lower hose on. This needs to be removed to take the hood off. underneath on each side of the power drive assembly you will have 1 screw, remove them. there is a clip on each side that snaps the front on, push them out with a screwdriver. Then the hood is removed.

The pedal release can be replaced but the base will need to be checked for cracks as well. if the base is broken most common is the socket the pedal release snaps into. some of the plastic parts have been made with better materials
