Question about Hoover Vacuums
Last Saturday I bought a Hoover Windtunnel #UH 70905 and the assistant told me that the handle would go down all the way so that I could clean under my aviary. I cannot get this handle down all the way, it will not go under my bird cage. I have depressed the switch and it will go down a little way but, not all the way. What am I doing wrong? I must have a Hoover that will clean under this cage as my birds are very messy with their seed.

The sales person told you wrong. That machine, and all of the other Hoovers in that body style do not lay flat. If a Hoover is what you want and you need it to lay flat, look at the "Air" series machines. They will lay flat and are a slim build, such as UH72405,

I have the same problem with ours. If you lift the vacuum by the handle it breaks the lever on the transmission. You can find a replacement cable and lever on line for about $16.00 it is somewhat involved to repair but can be done by someone with mechanical ability. You can try and find a repair shop but be careful, they sometimes tell you the part is not available and try to sell you something else. I think they should be able to do the job for aprox. $80.00, but they may want more. I did it myself plus the height adj. knob for $24.00

SOURCE: hoover on off switch won't
Don't know what model you have, but sounds like you will need to replace the switch. As far as your question, you will have to contact the manufacture for an answer. We only provide solutions to your problem and a model number would have helped.

Removing the handle assembly should be easy after removal of the two screws. It may be binding or hanging up on the self-propel cable...or the plastic may just be stuck/binding. Note that the handle slides in and out of the vacuum unit along the same axis as the two screws (i.e. slides straight off the back towards you when you are standing behind the vacuum). Try to pry it off gently w/thin-bladed screwdriver or butter knife (careful now!). Not sure about the smoking issue but you may have a severely plugged filter and the unit is overheating as a result. Check that out immediately/first to avoid fire or expensive motor burnout.

The flat belt should be changed if it has been longer than 9-12 months. Next I would remove the upper handle to inspect the top section of the control cable, sometimes it fray's and has a sponge feel (no positive control) to self propel. To set this adjustment, it is best to do withthe hood off of the lower section. I would also look at the cable jacket in the foot to make sure it is under the metal clamp. It must be under the clamp to work properly. To get it under the clamp loosen one hold down screw at the top and one in the back of the vacuum, remove clamp screws and put jacket into position and then secure all screws. Now set the adjustment, Install upper handle and set self propel to off. loosen cable from arm in foot with torx screw. manually move arm until the clutch is off both drive pads. This is a visual adjustment. then secure and reassemble vacuum.
