Question about Hoover U6455-900 WindTunnel Vacuum
I had to take the hose bracket off to clean out the lower part (floor suction)of the hose. Now the LEDs don't light up. Do you know where the contact points are for the LEDs or why they might not be working?

That door is called a valve door, and it may have broken, part #38718013. Or the valve arm, rear broke, part number 38719048. The spring part # is 38358001. Usually it is the valve arm that breaks. You would have to take the top cover off, then you can see the parts.

SOURCE: suction hose
i would first double check the hose, remove it and drop a marble through it to be sure. make sure the bag is new and also check the filter underneath the bag if it is clogged it could cut the suction.

With the unit standing upright, double check the clear plastic air passages on the sides of the vacumn to see if they are clogged.

It sounds like the plates inside the vacuum that detect the dirt have become dirty. I don't remember where they are, but I think they're accessible if you remove a certain hose. Again, I don't know which hose it is.

SOURCE: hose has low suction
I too had the same problem for over a year and changed all filters, checked for clogs, etc, but refused to give up. It just didn't make sense that suction was great on bottom but not on toos... I finally discovered that the "door" on the angle hose was not closing properly when the vacuum was in the upright position (if you look at the vacuum from the back, this hose connects the back to the bottom of the vacuum and it has a "door" at the very bottom end that is supposed to block suction to the lower part of the vacuum while upright) It was unable to close all the way because there was a build up of linty stuff in one corner. The best way to access this is to remove the two screws on the clamp found at the top of the hose, (freeing the hose on top only), straighten hose so you can see inside to the end, and watch inside as you press the upright release lever. (awkward, but worth the effort) You should be able to see the door move -it should be completely open when the vacuum is not locked upright, and should be completely closed when upright. Remove anything that might be preventing it from closing - I used a flathead screwdriver. Dont mean to go on and on, but am so excited to have fixed this problem, and have found so many people with the same situation on the internet while trying to find a solution...Hope this helps someone!!!!
