Question about Hoover U5227-930 Elite Upright Vacuum
I cannot take the telescopic handle from the base of the vacuum. There is a quick release that enables this handle to come off in order to vacuum with the attchments in high places (celilings). I notice that there is a small crack in the plastic underneath the quick
The belt for this machine is very specific and only one size fits. It is not uncommon for vac shops to sell the wrong belt because the proper belt is not available from normal supply houses, so they will substitute something they think will work.
Also, assuming you do have the right belt, check the tension arm that drops down on the v-belt when the handle is brought back. This arm has a wheel/bearing with a plastic "tire" or trim that rolls on the belt to tighten it. Sometimes, this tire cracks and falls off and then the remaining bearing won't have the necessary tension to tighten up the belt.

I need to replace the actuator pivot arm on my Hoover Wind Tunnel to fix the self propel feature. I can see where it needs to go but I can not seem to get the cover off the vacuum so I can get to it. How do I do this?

I tried what reddevil6 suggested and was not able to get Sears to produce a manual. I would prefer an online manual but at this point I'm desperate enough to try anything.
