How to replace Hoover PowerMAX power nozzle cord?

Hi
I have Hoover powerMAX vacuum cleaner.
Its power nozzle cord got worn out and wires were torn right at the entrance to the cleaner head.
I wanted to replace the cord (or at least to use the what's left of it), but I cannot release the piece of the old power nozzle cord out of its nest in the cleaner head. It sits very tight in the nest there and I cannot push the cord out of the nest. I cannot see any release mechanism either.
Any ideas how it should be properly done?
I appreciate any help/advice/comment
Thanks
Eugene

You can get the new cord at your local vac shop or you can take the power nozzle to the shop and have it repaired

SOURCE: LOUD NOISE FROM HOOVER POWERMAX ii

These vacs can stop up in almost inaccessible places. That sound means that it has stopped up somewhere and the electric motor is in a strain. Keep it running like that long enough and the motor is toast. I have one that seems to prefer the hose area where it goes by the motor and into the bag. The tube from the motor to the bag also is prone to stop up. To take these apart requires that you start at the beater bar area and work you way inward. In certain areas if you look closely, you'll see little arrows pointing to the screws. These are the ones that will allow you to get closer to the innards of these. When you get to where the motor is, look for blockages from the attachment hose. It takes only small items to completely block it off which will effect performance from both the beater bar/normal intake and also from use of the hose itself. The b***ards can be a pain to keep functional. I've personally removed rather sizeable wads of dog hair from mine that mucked up the works rather than went into the bag. Belts for the beater bar are notoriously short lived in these as well. When they break, the vacuum is only good as a floor sweeper. Stock up on both belts and bags for these. Good luck!

I have no owners manual and need to replace the belt on a Hoover powermax model #:U5242-930 can you help thanks Bab


I don't see this unit on the Hoover support site. However other Powermax vacuums come up in the search for manuals: http://www.hoover.com/CustomerService/manuals/Default.aspx .

Most of the units have very similar belt replacement procedures. First unplug the vacuum. Then press the handle release lever and place the handle in the low position. Next remove the hood by turning the two slots either side of the hood with a coin. Rotate the hood towards the front of the unit and remove it. Then remove the agitator brush roll and the old belt. Discard the old belt.

With the lettering to the outside, slide the new belt over the motor pulley. (The old belt should have been on the pulley. If the belt broke and isn't in place, look for it on the right as you look at the front of the vacuum above the agitator brush roller's position.) Slide the agitator brush roller through the belt and place the belt in the belt guide on the roller. Grasp the agitator and put it into position. Fit it into the rectangular slot on the left. Then pull it into position on the right side of the vacuum. Check if the agitator and the belt turn freely and that the belt isn't pinched between the agitator and the bottom of the unit. Replace the hood by aligning the tabs with the slots on the base. Then turn the coin slots to secure the hood.

I hope this helps.

S3601 Power Cord Mainspring Has NO Tension.


cord reel assembly maybe the spring jumped one time over out over 1 of the confirmationpoints of the reel assembly or the roller on the shaft is worn something is broken on the shaft and or mounting points that it tilts and walks somewhere against, sometime its better to get out the spring of the unit instead of repair because of the costs.

Received hoover powermax fusion vac today and the handle will not go down as indicated in diagram.


What is your model number? A Savvy and Powermax are differntent models. The Savvy the handle slides on and there are 4 screws to hold it in place. The Powermax has 2 screws to hold it in place. have you removed them before trying to put the handle on. If you have, you just have to work so it will slide down then put in the screws to secure it.
