Question about Hoover Ultra U6430-900 WindTunnel Bagged Upright Vacuum
How do I replace the handle release lever?
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 just did this; it wasn't easy, but i succeeded. Buy part online from Sears parts; they have it. (38458022) Pull off the plastic dial indicator from the top of the vac. Put it in your pocket. Pry off the plastic housing by pulling it away from the body. It will pull off. Slide the belt off the pulley. Remove the motor and handle and bag(it is easy: four phillips screws on top. I had to replace one of the motor retainers because it had snapped. Now comes the hard part. Pry out the old lever using screwdrivers and force. Slide the new lever down into the gap so that the pins go into the holes. It was not an easy job, but I did succeed. Good Luck. Jim B
