Hoover U5507900 Elite Rewind problem

The rewind suddenly only takes up about 2/3rds of the cord. I tried pulling the cord all the way out to the extreme and rewinding again, but it looses spring power with about 2/3 left.

Re: Hoover U5507900 Elite Rewind problem

May have to replace the cord reel asm. It will have to be taken out and inspected, if can't see a problem, then replace it. If this is less then one year old, then it is still under warranty and should be taken to a warranty shop along with proof of purchase.

Motor shut off

Try it half an hour later, does it run? If so it's overheating. Change your filters and empty the cup.
If it does not run it's likely a problem with the cord rewind. Some of those units had a recall on the cord rewind. To find out for sure find a local hoover service center and take it in for repair many times at no cost.

Plug/wire is stuck partially out (4-5 inches)pressing on rewind button nothing happens....just stuck!

This usually means the cord got twisted over itself. Pull it completely out and give slight resistance on cord and rewind it again.

My hoover elite rewind is making a louder noise and I can smell something burning when I use it. I have replaced the belt but this did not help.

the smell is either the motor or the belt, if motor hope it is under warranty, if belt make sure brush roll spins freely and replace belt, if brush roll not spin freely replace it first

Hoover Elite Rewind - powerhead brushes are not turning

most likely band is broken. Usually there is a spare in the box or on the unit when new. Unscrew 2-3 screws by beater bar (brushes) pull off cover and replace band.

Automatic Cord Rewinder is not rewinding anymore

I had the same problem - the power cord for my Hoover Elite Upright (U5507900) was stuck a few inches out and wouldn't go any further. But when I unscrewed the rewinding mechanism, the cord had clearly gotten twisted and partly buried under itself so after some work I was able to free it. Now it seems to be working fine, at least for the moment. Note that I had to use small screwdrivers to unscrew the cord rewinding compartment, like the kind of screwdrivers you use for computer repair.

Blowing out dust

The reason most vacuums blow dust is because there is little or no suction in the foot of the vac. on this model, check to make sure that the hose is installed in the recepticle on the back to draw vacuum from the floor. verify the filter is clean, and there is no obstruction in the bottom foot.
