You will need to take the top off. It is easy: turn the vacuum over and look at the bottom (where you can see the beater bar). There are some deep screw "wells"; these are the screws you need to take out plus the 4 silver looking screws that hold the beater bar plate in place. When you bet those out, there there will be a "notch" at the front, behind the LED light you will have to disengage. Turn the vacuum back over and take the gray top off. You should be able to see the engagement latch that is attached to the handle. This is what opens and allows the flap to shut. It has a spring attached that may have come loose. Good luck.

Hoover UH70935 windtunnel agitator spins like crazy with plate off after cleaning but will not with plate replaced.... what is going on?


If the brush roller was removed, it may have been reinstalled incorrectly, causing it to bind on the bottom plate.

My hoover steam vacs brushes will not turn . could there be a belt broken? I have misplaced the manual


For the manual:
http://www.hoover.com/pdfs/manuals/F5914900.pdf

For the brushes:
(1) Assure the Brush Control on the hood is NOT set to the OFF position.
(2) Remove the brush assembly by pulling/unlatching it from base on each side.
(3) Does one of the brushes have the drive pin present? It should be about ¼ inch square, and two inches long. It attaches the brushes to the drive mechanism.
(4) Remove and clean the intake filter. One the base of the cleaner, behind the brushes, squeeze the two red abs together and pull the panel down to access the screen. Clean the hair/debris off the screen and reassemble.

The gear box that drives the brushes is driven by vacuum air, running the turbine inside.
There are no belts, just direct drive.

Brush roller does not turn off in upright position


make sure there is not a lever to move in order to stop the brushes/agitator...
if the belt makes contact with the end of the shaft the brushes will rotate...
tighten all of course/and take the panel of to check behind the bag to make sure all is tight. (fasteners)
take off the face plate to make sure that the adjustment for the floor tools is not broke and belt is ok.

Hoover Z 700 Model U9145-900


Try going to hoover.com and either email them or there is a number that you can call, this is hoover direct, so someone there should be able to help you. Have your model and serial numbers and purchase date handy in case they ask. It also has a 2 year warranty on it. So if you bought it in the fall of 2006, then you have until the fall of 2008. I would take it to an warranty servicer and get it repaired before the warranty runs out.
