Hoover.com doesn't have a manual specific to your model but there is one similar which will show how to remove the upper handle from the body.

Do you have a replacement switch? If not I believe you can buy one from Hoover (the switch and/or the upper handle assembly). Unfortunately your model isn't listed on the website, is this a new vacuum? I recommend giving them a call, that would be the easiest way.

Also remember when working with electronics to unplug the vacuum. Even when there is no power residual electricity can remain in the wires. If you feel unsure, take it to a repairman.

Hope this helps!

My hoover wind tunnel just quit while vacuuming. It is dead??? Two years old used about every other week? Any suggestions?


Some Wind Tunnels by Hoover have a poor design in the switch on the handle. Sometimes the switch does not turn on all the way and will stop running. Other times you can't turn the unit off.

My new Hoover Wind Tunnel Upright UH50000 will not turn off unless I unplug it.


First I would be sure the handle was properly installed. Remove the two screws holding the upper handle in place and tap it bacwards to remove it. Set the switch inside to the OFF position. Next set both buttons on the handle to the OFF position and re-install the upper handle. If the switch still does not turn the vacuum on and off, the switch will need replacement.

Hoover Supreme wind tunnel upright model. I have a bad on-off switch. How do I replace it?


Take the two screw off the handle and then remove the upper handle devise. This will expose the real on/off switch which is on the top of the unit. There is a plastic actuator that rubs up against the switch when slide the plastic switch on the handle. What happens is the plastic wears out and does not make good contact with the real switch.

A simple solution is to wrap duct tape around the plastic actuator to make it thicker, which then makes more contact with the real switch. Put the cover back on with the two screws on the back. Slide the plastic on/off switch an it will turn on and off again!

How do you change the Hoover wind tunnel belts?


If you turn the vacuum over there will be (4) screws that hold on the base cover for the roller brush. Remove the screws and the cover and you can get to the belt(s). You can get replacement belts here:

Hoover Wind Tunnel does not turn on


that is a pretty good lifespan for a hoover, but its probably the power switch that's bad. Hoover uses a very poor quality switch. It shouldn't cost to much to have it replaced

Hoover Wind Tunnel 2 won't stay on


Possible that the switch is bad, part #40309033, take the handle off, then the tool compartment, then you can get to the switch, almost bet that one of the contacts is bad.
