Question about Hoover U6437-900 / U6439-900 Windtunnel Bagged Upright Vacuum
There actually IS a fuse/buss of sorts, if you really stretch the definition, anyways...so if your switch checked out good, and your outlet didn't fizzle out and blow a house fuse or trip a breaker, in the machine base, near the motor, there is a "Thermtrol". Its purpose is to prevent overheating, so if your machine got hot, then stopped and would not start again...the manuals and experts recommend unplugging the machine, letting it cool for a half hour or so, then clear any possible blockages, and try again...If you're still not getting any power, check your wiring from wall outlet to machine...then from base to switch..If your wiring is all good, connections tight and right, you might have a faulty/failed thermal regulator.

I know this question posting isn't brand new, but I still wanted to provide help for something that can be crazy making for a consumer who just wants to pick up the fuzzies and be done with it and needs to find a way to motivate their appliance to run. Hope this helps someone :-)

Its the switch. order the switch from the company or your local vac shop. 2 to 4 screws on the handle. then go to were the hand tools are kept, there should be 4 screws. then splice the wires and put on the wire nuts and new switch and your in buiesness. ( check for a clog before repair )

I don't get your procedure to fixing the fuse in the vacuum. If you could explain it , like break it down, I could figure it out. My vacuum just shut off and wont turn back on. No matter what I do. I've taken the thing apart everywhere and still no fix. I did tons of research on my vacuum problem and a blown thermal fuse is most likely what it is. If u can help, I would greatly appreciate it.
