Question about Hoover Vacuums
I recently bought a vacuum cleaner the problem is when I am using it the power cord warms up to a point that freak me out. It happen in my bedroom when I was only trying to vacuum up the mattress. so, I would like to know if there is something wrong with it or it is just that the motor is too powerful. It is under warranty. MODEL # UH70935, HOUSEHOLD TIPE, SERIE YF12.0. Should I send it to a repair shop as suggested by Hoover or simply just leave it like that... I am concern it catch fire. please help me.
If it is under warranty, send it to a repair shop.

They do get warm and that is normal. You will see it melt before it catches fire. The amount of electricty that is being used is close to the amount the cord can take.

I had the same problem with my Hoover s3639. The cord rewinder started squeaking, and retracted less and less of the cord each time, until it finally stopped retracting the cord at all. Here is what I did. I hope it will work for you as well. Open the covered tool storage and remove the tools. You should see three screws. Unscrew the screws. Remove the cover. You should see the motor for the vacuum and the cord rewinder. Between the vacuum motor and the white wheel where the cord is, you should see two brass wheels that turn into each other in order to operate the cord rewinder. Spray a small amount WD-40 between the two brass wheels. This should solve your problem.

The aforementioned solutions probably never even attempted this fix on this model. The handle does NOT need to come off. but the 5 screws on the front housing DO: 2 above the light and 3 below it. Then to get the colored housing off you need to access 2 screws on the underside that are beneath the agitator roller. To do that, obviously the 4 screws holding the bottom plate need to come off too. Here's a link to a schematic that might help as you attempt to do this, (assuming that you still do!) http://www.elkypro.com/hoops2005/vacuum_parts/hoover/U5461-900.html
Once you have the main body housing cover off, then you can access the 2 screws atop of each trunnion cover that holds the motor assembly cover halves together. If you've made it this far, then gently pry apart the motor halves keeping even as yo do. Now you can see all the wiring necessary to cut and splice. Happy cord replacing! As for me, I am headed for the store, as I am not so sure I can remember how to get the darn thing put back together. But it was fun taking it apart!
