Question about Hoover U6437-900 / U6439-900 Windtunnel Bagged Upright Vacuum
Hose for attachments has suction but floor vacuum doesn't work.
When in the upright position, a lever closes a door in the suction line so that the hose can be disconnected and used with attachments. When the hose is re-attached and cleaner is moved from the upright position to the floor-operating position, the lever disengages and I believe a spring is suppose to return the door to an open position.
the spring load on this door is not working properly and the door remains closed. i can see a torsion spring wrapped around the lever but apparently it either doesn't work the way i'm imagining it or something changed with the spring.
Anyone ever see this before? (this is actually a U6632-900, upright, self-propelled, whirlwind).
That door is called a valve door, and it may have broken, part #38718013. Or the valve arm, rear broke, part number 38719048. The spring part # is 38358001. Usually it is the valve arm that breaks. You would have to take the top cover off, then you can see the parts.
