Question about Hoover U5753-900 WindTunnel Bagless Upright Vacuum
I have a problem with my Hoover WindTunnel Vacuum. The Carpet/Floor switch seems to be off. When turn to carpet, the vacuum runs really faint. I have to put down pressure on the switch (not quite to the 'floor' setting) for it to work. As of recently, even that's not working.
I was able to access the switch area and there seems to be wiring, etc. that I didn't feel comfortable messing with. I can follow directions as long as it doesn't touch electrical.
Thanks in advance!
Well, you have to deal with it, you have to play with this electrical things if you want to fix this problems.
The good news is, the sources of the problems is the switch already broken.The first things before you do anything is, find this switch on the market first to changes the old ones.Then, remove the power cord from the outlet of course.
After have it, then you must open the old switch, and remove it from the unit by cutting the cables using cutter/ pliers or anything.But remember, you must remember the locations of each cable that been cut, you can use Camera Cellphone to make sure of it if you like.
Then put the cables back together with the new switch, after all done, clean all the mess and try operate it.
Hope it works!!!

Testimonial: "I got into the switch area and found that it has a clip at the end. I reset the switch and it's working better. I'm sure I need to replace soon. Thx!"
There is a couple of things I would check. First, is the beater brush Turning ? Check this by turning the vacuum on and laying on its side to look, but don't touch. If it's turning ... great, if not then you need to replace the belt. Second, with the vac unplugged check all hose's and ports for clogs.
Hope this helps,
P.S. PLEASE RATE MY ASSISTANCE
