Question about Hoover U6437-900 / U6439-900 Windtunnel Bagged Upright Vacuum

1 Answer

My Model is a U5465-900 - I need to replace the agitator housing.

I don't seem to be able to find a site with entire replacement parts list. Or a cross reference to the U5465-900 model. It has a 15" agitator. The housing has been "rubbed" through at one side of the agitator and is no longer capable of containing the agitator in the proper position.

Thanks

Agitator Rattling


There are no washers of any sort on the Dyson's agitators. There are molded caps on each end, made to fit into the bracketry on the sides of the nozzle portion. If there's it seems as though there's something missing then you'll need to purchase a complete agitator, there are no replacement parts for agitators.

I inherited this vacuum from my mother but I don't have the manual. I have 2 belts for it, but I don't know where they go. I can turn it on and it seems to work, but the bag doesn't fill up...


Most vacuum uses one belt at a time. The belt connects the agitator (beater bar) to the roller which is driven by the motor of the vacuum in the base of the upright vacuum.

To check if the belt is present/intact on the vacuum, look at the sides of the base for two latches. Push the latches away from each other then lift up to remove the cover so that you can check or replace the belt. To replace the belt, lift the agitator out of the base (first lift the right side). Cut off the old belt with scissors if it is still intact before pulling on the agitator. You may need to pull the bumper forward to get the beater bar out of the base. To put on the new belt, slide it onto the roller of the motor then onto the pulley of the agitator. Replace the beater bar in the housing. Start with the left end cap and make sure to keep the arrow pointing down on both sides of the part. Make sure that the agitator turns and center the belt before reattaching the cover.

While you have cover off, check for anything wrapped around the agitator. Remove anything that prevents the beater bar from turning freely. Make sure the area around the agitator is clear of any clogs.

However, if the belt is missing, the volume of dirt picked up will be less but not zero. It is more likely that the unit is clogged. There are several filters that need regular cleaning or replacement. The motor filter is at the bottom of the vacuum bag cavity. It should be cleaned with warm soapy water then rinsed completely. Squeeze out the excess water and then let it air dry. Wait until it is dry before reassembling the vacuum.

An exhaust filter also needs regular cleaning. This is behind the dust cover near the bottom of the area covered by the cover. To remove the dust cover, pull forward and then lay it down. To clean, put the filter under cold running water. Then air dry completely before reassembling the vacuum cleaner.

Finally check if the hose is clogged. First remove the hose by grasping it near the base and twisting it as you pull it away from the vacuum. Pull the hose completely straight then plug in and turn on your vacuum. Stretch out the hose and then let it relax into its storage configuration. Turn off the vacuum and then unplug it. Check for and remove any clumps of dirt stuck in the hose before replacing the hose.

If you have cleaned the vacuum and it is still not picking up dirt, try a different pile height setting on the vacuum. Also check if the agitator should be replaced.

Manage My Life has the manual for the vacuum here: http://www.managemylife.com/mmh/owner_manuals/15123/KENMORE-Vacuum-Upright-L0807740?brand_name_search=33078 . This manual gives the pictures of the various parts that need to be cleaned or replaced regularly. Sears Parts Direct has some parts for the unit; see http://www.searspartsdirect.com/partsdirect/part-model/Kenmore-Parts/Vacuum-Parts/Model-72136078600/0582/0645000?sid=PDVertical .

I hope this helps.

Self leveling platform will not lower.


Hi There,

This is probably being caused by the two little feet on the bottom of the agitator housing. I have yet to completely understand what the purpose of these two feet are, but what happens is that over time the screws that secure them in place begin to loosen, which allows these two little feet to become lodged between the agitator housing (the part the brush is actually in) and the vacuum bag housing (upright part) preventing the agitator housing from releasing when stepping on the foot pedal.

Here's a picture of these two little feet from the parts schematic. You may either tighten the screws, or just remove these two feet entirely from the vacuum cleaner, Other then helping stabalize the vacuum while in the upright position, these don't really seem to much else.

Here's the picutre of the two feet which are circled in red.

If you inspect these feet and they are not loose, then you may have an issue with the handle release pedal itself. Please just add a comment if this did not fix it, and I will be happy to walk you through step by step on how to fix the handle release.

I really hoped that this helped you fix the machine. If you found my repair helpful, please be so kind and rate the repair, or leave feedback for me. This is greatly appreciated by the Fixya community.

Thanks again,

Putting on a belt on a vacuum


Greetings from GoVacuum.com,

Replacing a Belt on an Upright vacuum can vary from model to model, but it is basically going to be the same for most upright models.

First you will need to access the belt. Most upright vacuums this is done by turning the machine upside down, and most you'll need to remove the bottom plate by unscrewing (usually 4) screws that hold the plate on. You should see screws that are closest to the actual roller brush, simply remove these screws, and take the bottom plate off. If the machine is a Eureka, or Kenmore, the top agitator housing will be removed from the top of the vacuum, not the bottom.

Once you have removed the bottom plate, or top agitator housing, you should be able to see the belt (or broken belt) along with the roller brush. Remove the broken belt. Make sure that you purchase the correct belt by taking the make, and the model number (located on the back or bottom of the machine). Please note that a broken belt may be 4-5 inches longer then a new belt, as they stretch a lot before they finally break.

Once you have the new belt, you will need to remove the roller brush. Pay attention to how the roller brush fits into the agitator housing, usually there will be fittings on the end of the roller that have to be put in a specific place, or in a certain way to work right. After the roller brush is taken out of the machine, you will need to wrap one end of the belt around a metal pulley on the opposite side of the roller brush. Most pulleys are located where the main housing (handle part) of the vacuum meet the the agitator (floor part) part of the machine. Anyways, wrap one end of the belt around the pulley, and then put the roller brush through the other end of the belt. This is where you'll need to put some elbow grease into it. You'll need to stretch the roller brush and belt so that the brush and belt are stretched back to the place where you took the roller brush out of the vacuum.

Once you have replaced the roller brush with a new belt around it, pull the belt a few times to make sure that the brush spins while you are pulling it, to ensure that the belt is not pinched, and is spinning freely.

I hope this helps. Here's a video showing how to replace the belt on a Hoover Windtunnel Self Propelled model; Feel free to email me if you'd like to send me the model number of your vacuum, this way I can be a little more specific, and give you part numbers. I have all belts for all vacuums in stock. Email; chris.jones@govacuum.com. 1-866-468-2288.

Agitator brush not working


I went ahead and ordered a switch and wire harness from Sears Parts online(using repair parts list that came with vacuum cleaner) which cost me about $45.00 including shipping. After receiving the parts I first tried replacing the switch and no difference. Then I changed the wire harness that contains the receptacle where the plug from the extension wand plugs in. Sure enough, that solved the problem! Apparently the plug receptacle was worn out causing the short. It took some effort to get the Handle Assembly apart and then back together; however, I did it and broke nothing! I am so stoked as I know I probably saved at least $100.00 by doing this myself!! And if I were to send the switch back, my cost would only be about $30.00!

It is amazing what a person can do when using the parts list that came with the appliance and the internet to order parts!!!!

How to replace power cord on Hoover WindTunnel upright vacuum


The aforementioned solutions probably never even attempted this fix on this model. The handle does NOT need to come off. but the 5 screws on the front housing DO: 2 above the light and 3 below it. Then to get the colored housing off you need to access 2 screws on the underside that are beneath the agitator roller. To do that, obviously the 4 screws holding the bottom plate need to come off too. Here's a link to a schematic that might help as you attempt to do this, (assuming that you still do!) http://www.elkypro.com/hoops2005/vacuum_parts/hoover/U5461-900.html

Once you have the main body housing cover off, then you can access the 2 screws atop of each trunnion cover that holds the motor assembly cover halves together. If you've made it this far, then gently pry apart the motor halves keeping even as yo do. Now you can see all the wiring necessary to cut and splice. Happy cord replacing! As for me, I am headed for the store, as I am not so sure I can remember how to get the darn thing put back together. But it was fun taking it apart!

I CAN'T SEEM TO INSTALL A NEW UB8 BELT


  1. Remove the lower plate
  2. Carefully lift up on the agitator assembly until it clears both sides of the nozzle housing.

  3. Remove the belt from the motor shaft by sliding it off between the end of the shaft and the nozzle housing.
3.4.2 Installation
  1. Place the belt around the motor shaft.
  2. Start the new agitator assembly back into the nozzle housing by placing the side opposite the belt partially into the slot. This will hold the agitator in place and leave both hands free to place enough tension on the belt to allow that side of the agitator to return to the nozzle housing slot.

  3. Place the belt around the agitator pulley on the agitator assembly.
    NOTE: There is a place for the belt to fit on one end of the agitator assembly only. This is the agitator pulley.
  4. Use both hands to pull the belt tight, and slide the agitator assembly firmly into the slots on each end of the nozzle housing.

  5. Rotate the agitator assembly by hand to insure nothing rubs and to check for correct assembly.
  6. Replace the lower plate
