Question about Hoover U5450-900 Windtunnel Supreme Bagged Upright Vacuum
U5470-900 switch stuck in off position
I had the same problem twice already. The first time it was under warranty and my local vac & sew shop fixed it for free. The second time was shortly after warranty expired, so I just bought the switch and replaced myself. Have only had it for 2 years, so we'll see if I have to replace the switch again in a year.

I had this problem and it was the push rod that was not properly engaging the switch. I moved the switch to the outside of the housing where it could be operated manually. Had to cut a couple of holes in the housing but it works just fine.

I would need to know how long ago you bought it. If it is new, you might have simply assembled wrong. If it's not new, there was probably just a mis-production in the switch and it has too much tension in it. Thus, causing the plastic rods that come from the button to the switch to not have enough force to change the switch from off to on. Your best bet is to just have the switch changed.
