Question about Hoover U5491-900 Bagged Upright Vacuum
Anniversary model. Unit has a slider switch on the handle.Move switch very slowly unit comes on for1/10 second. Seems like actual switch located remotely. Where is switch, which pieces need to be removed to get to switch, is it the switch or the connection between the actual switch and the slider switch located on the hanndle?? Any place on internet to see exploded view of this model?? Thanks, Lee

On page 11 of your manual it talsk about the pre-filter which I think is the one you are talking about, it isn't to come out, so either is pressed in or glued. But if this is less then 1 year old it is under warranty. If it is then take it in and have it repaired,

Removing the handle assembly should be easy after removal of the two screws. It may be binding or hanging up on the self-propel cable...or the plastic may just be stuck/binding. Note that the handle slides in and out of the vacuum unit along the same axis as the two screws (i.e. slides straight off the back towards you when you are standing behind the vacuum). Try to pry it off gently w/thin-bladed screwdriver or butter knife (careful now!). Not sure about the smoking issue but you may have a severely plugged filter and the unit is overheating as a result. Check that out immediately/first to avoid fire or expensive motor burnout.

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 :)
