Hoover elite rewind won't stay on

First it would get stuck in the on position, and we had to use the power plug to turn the machine on and off. and now it turns on when i apply pressure to it, but i can't get it to stay on. Any clues what to do?
Thanks

    Maybe I am really technically challenged, but the switch doesn't appear broken, it seems more that there is some catch or groove it can't get into.

    no problem, i found a diagram of the switch (it is foot operated) online, and i think i know what the problem is, but i don't know how to open it up! I guess I'll have to go to a mechanic.

Sorry if this is stating the obvious, but it sounds as though your machine needs a new switch! Do you need help with that?

    Sorry again... first for delay getting back to you, and second for offering help where perhaps I can't. I was thinking of another model of vacuum! However, yours has a foot-operated switch doesn't it? If so, you have to distinguish between a problem with the button that you actually touch and the switch that is beneath it (and with which you never actually come in to direct contact). Unfortunately I'm not familiar with your model, so can't guide you in dismantling it.
    I hope someone else will be able to help.

What is the belt part no. for a hoover elite rewind?? model no. UH71009RM


If you look up the Hoover page for the UH71009 (the non-remanufactured Elite Rewind), there are 3 different belt model numbers listed. One part number is simply for a 2 pack of the belts. See http://hoover.com/products/details/uh71009/elite-rewind-bagless-upright/ . Click on the Parts & Accessories tab.

I believe the belt part number is 38528058 , http://hoover.com/parts/details/38528058/sra-r-b-562932001-belt/ .

I hope this helps.

Plug/wire is stuck partially out (4-5 inches)pressing on rewind button nothing happens....just stuck!


This usually means the cord got twisted over itself. Pull it completely out and give slight resistance on cord and rewind it again.

Hoover Elite Rewind - powerhead brushes are not turning


most likely band is broken. Usually there is a spare in the box or on the unit when new. Unscrew 2-3 screws by beater bar (brushes) pull off cover and replace band.

Automatic Cord Rewinder is not rewinding anymore


I had the same problem - the power cord for my Hoover Elite Upright (U5507900) was stuck a few inches out and wouldn't go any further. But when I unscrewed the rewinding mechanism, the cord had clearly gotten twisted and partly buried under itself so after some work I was able to free it. Now it seems to be working fine, at least for the moment. Note that I had to use small screwdrivers to unscrew the cord rewinding compartment, like the kind of screwdrivers you use for computer repair.
HTH!

Levels/Settings


These height adjustments are designed so that they will not adjust when the handle is in the "back" position. This is so they will stay where they are set and not self-adjust while you are vacuuming. To change the setting, you need to return the handle to the upright position and the adjust the setting and the machine will go to that position when the handle is lowered.

Hoover U5507900 Elite Rewind problem


May have to replace the cord reel asm. It will have to be taken out and inspected, if can't see a problem, then replace it. If this is less then one year old, then it is still under warranty and should be taken to a warranty shop along with proof of purchase.
