Re: U6446-900

From the underside: 1. remove 4 screws holding agitator cover in place 2. remove 2 screws (black screws) holding hose retainer in place, pull hose out through top 3. remove three screws, 2 long, 1 short holding top cover: short screw is at center of inside of brush housing, long screws are inboard of wheel axles, and slightly forward (all of these screws are aluminum colored) 4. from inside surface of each side, at approx the center, locate and push down on ledge inside right and left inside with a screwdriver to slightly displace the plastic ledge that holds the cover on; this ledge-lock-detent can be released with your fingers. You'll have to support the drive mechanism to allow the top housing to drop free. 5. remove housing, turn vacuum over, then go find the torx driver you need to disconnect the cable. Good Luck MB

How do I pop the top off to replace level adjustment lever.

Turn the machine over (with the handle released). Remove the 4 screws (2 on each end of the cover over the brush). Remove the cover. There are 2 screws, deep in the machine (behind drive train wheels) remove the screws. With the machine in the same position, note 2 plastic clips located on either side of the top cover. Release the clips using a slotted screw drive.

Now you will be able lift of the entire top cover from the base. You will then see the belt and roller brush, remove the old belt and replace with a new one. You can get the replacement belt you need here:

Kenmore PowerMate cannister: Reattach cannister floor piece.

You need to open the head by gently squeezing the light cover housing and lifting it off. There will be two screws underneath and once removed the lid will lift off and reveal the area where the pedal installs.

My fan belt on my hoover is broken,where is it located and how do i fit a new fan belt

Get a new belt, then remove the bottom plate. The belt goes around the brush roll and the motor shaft. If you don't see the motor shaft, then you will need to remove the top cover to get to it. The belt will stretch to go from the motor shaft to where the brush roll sits in. If this model has 2 belts, then the drive belt(flat) goes from the motor shaft to the bigger pulley close to the brush roll.

  1. Unplug the machine.
  2. From the front of the machine, remove the collection bin.
  3. Facing the back of your vacuum, remove each of the Philips head screws located above each of the rear wheels. (Figure 1)
  4. To remove the base cover, place your thumbs in the two screw holes in the back of the machine. Push forward and up on the screw holes to disengage the 3 cover locking tabs. Put the cover off to one side, and go to the front of the machine. (Figure 2)
  5. Check the drive arm for any black streaks which indicate residual rubber from the last belt. The drive arm is located on the right side of the motor. The easiest way to remove any residual rubber is with some nail polish remover on a rag or with steel wool.
  6. To attach a new belt, remove the brush from the base of the machine by pulling up straight up with two hands.
  7. Take the new belt and hook it over the steel drive arm. Pull back on the belt slightly, to create some tension.
  8. Put the brush inside the belt loop so that the track for the belt is aligned with the belt itself.
  9. Replace the brush by aligning the metal end so the points face downward. (Figure 3)
  10. Rotate the brush by hand to check that the belt is running freely and easily in its designated space between the bristle.
  11. Replace the cover by placing the nose in first. Once in place fasten with the two cover screws and then replace the collection bin.

How did you remove the top cover to get at the arm for the cable drive? (I don't want to break anything else!)

Turn it over, remove the plate over the brush roll, remove the cover over the intake hose, then there are 2 screws, one on each site, remove them, then using a flat blade, there is a slot on each side, from the bottom, push it in to release it and then the top will come off.

I can see that the cable is broken that controls the self propelled motor. But I can't figure out how to remove the top cover that will give me access to repair. Any thoughts?

1 Other User Has the Same Problem Comment by Dr_Jake, posted on Apr 19, 2008 I also have a broken cable (or one that has come loose) and cannot find a manual to describe how to get to the lower end of the cable to make the repair. Hello,
I would advise you to ALWAYS to FIRST UNPLUG YOUR VACUUM before beginning any service procedure.
Hoover U6616-900 Windtunnel Bagless Upright
I would contact either the local vac dealer or to contact the Hoover Factory or Manufacturer to get the owner’s manual to get an exploded view of the self propelled cable or have the email or fax the information that you need, but they should be able to send you an owner’s manual so you can try to fix it yourself. You don’t want to exceed the repairs cost to the price of what you paid for it. The decision should be yours, example: if the repairs costs are $200.00 and you paid $279.99 then @ that point you would have to decide if the repair costs are worth or do you want to pay the lower cost of repair and continue on. Just a suggestion... You may want to check with your local vac dealer. So if you need further assistance, please feel free to contact your local vacuum cleaner dealer in your area or in the yellow pages, or contact the factory phone number or website to further assist you with your questions.

Self propell feature not working

You can order the lever for the transmission on line for about $16.00. It comes as a cable and lever assembly. I just took the top cover off and replaced the lever without doing the cable. The reason ours broke is because we lifted the vacuum by the handle without the self propel bing turned off, this pulls on the actuator and breaks it.
