Question about Hoover SteamVac F5914-900 SpinScrub Upright Vacuum
Product F5914-900....while carrying cleaner downstairs, broke off little tab on the release button, that holds back in place. So cannot use cleaner because it will not stay in place. From what I can see, only recourse is to replace whole plastic part (cover) on bottom to mid point on cleaner. Am I right? Or is there and easier way? Have only used it twice.
If your cleaner hasbeen purchased within the last year it should be under warranty. By the way you are describing this problem the back assembly is the best solution, and can be replaced by a warranty dealer. Go to the Hoover web site hoover.com to locate a dealer near you.

Occasionally, customers have problems locking their Dyson vacuum in the upright position. This is a minor problem common with the Dyson DC07 and DC14 series and can easily be fixed by the customer. This page will show how to fix this problem. Although we show a Dyson DC14 Animal on this page, these instructions will work on any Dyson vacuum in the DC07 and DC14 series.
During shipping, moving parts on a Dyson vacuum can shift in position. One of these parts is a swinging arm in the base of the unit. This arm holds a removable elbow pipe in the vacuum's air passage. This arm can move out of the way so that you can clear out a blockage in the air passage. When this arm is out of position, the vacuum will not lock in the upright position. Fig. 1 Shows the base of a Dyson DC14 Animal locked upright. The red arrow points to the swinging arm. Fig. 2 shows the vacuum with the swing arm out of position. Since the swing arm is lower than it should be, it doesn't line up with the tab on the main body indicated by the red arrow.
Lean the handle of your Dyson all the way back and locate the black button on the right side of the vacuum indicated by the red arrow in Fig. 3.. Press the button down and hold it to unlock the swing arm.
While holding down the black button, pull the swinging arm (Shaded red in Fig. 4) all the way up. Fig. 5 shows the swinging arm in the correct position. Release the black button to lock the swing arm back in place.
The vacuum can now lock in the upright position as shown in Fig. 6. Note how the tab on the swinging arm overlaps the tab on the main body..
