The correct belt is # 38528034 ( package # 40201200 ) This belt may seem loose when it is installed, because there is an "idler bearing" that pushes down on it when the handle is released and dropped back.
On the windtunnel the switch is not in the handle. It is located in the top of the body housing underneath where the handle meets the body. The slide lever you are pushing on to make the machine run is just a push rod.
Hoover.com doesn't have a manual specific to your model but there is one similar which will show how to remove the upper handle from the body.
Do you have a replacement switch? If not I believe you can buy one from Hoover (the switch and/or the upper handle assembly). Unfortunately your model isn't listed on the website, is this a new vacuum? I recommend giving them a call, that would be the easiest way.
Also remember when working with electronics to unplug the vacuum. Even when there is no power residual electricity can remain in the wires. If you feel unsure, take it to a repairman.
