Question about Hoover Vacuums
The vacuum suddenly stopped working. I think it may be a fuse for the on/off switch. How do I replace the fuse.

Ok, lfitz, I fixed my problem. First I called the Sears Service Center. They told me that I would have to drop it off there, and they would send it to Orlando to get looked at. The whole process would take about 2 weeks and who knows how much money. So I decided to become my own Hoover technician. It turns out that my original diagnosis was right about the chord that electrically connects the power on/off switch at the top of the handle to the rest of the vacuum. This was extremely easy to fix so please don't be scared away, although it does require a little philips-head screwdriver action. As always, make sure the vacuum is unplugged before you start. On the back of the vacuum, there is the hook that you wrap the electrical chord around for storage (the top one). On either side of that hook are two screws. Unscrew those. Now, the small piece of plastic that has the hook on it can be carefully pulled back, or removed if you need to. Inside, I found the detached end of a coiled black electrical chord that looks kind of like an A/C adapter. This chord should be plugged into the bottom of the metal shaft that slides in and out to allow you to adjust the height of the handle. Now, adjust the metal shaft so that you can plug the black chord back into the base. Push the chord in until you hear it click. Now, put the plastic piece back in place and put the screws back in and you're done. Plug it in and give it a try. I hope this helps.

If this is a "V" belt, make sure the small roller that tightens the belt is ok and not jammed up. It may have to be replaced. Also if the flat belt is stretched at all, it won't work either.

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 :)
