Question about Hoover U6630-900 WindTunnel Bagless Upright Vacuum
My Hoover U6630-900 vacuum won't switch from "carpet" mode to "hard" mode and turn off the brush.
I found a spring on the floor and it appears that may be the problem but not sure how to get to that switch and reattach it.
If you turn the vacuum upside down so it exposes the beater bar you should see about 6 phillips screws holding the top and bottom together. Remove those then you will have to slide the base to the front a bit as there are tabs along the back. The bottom should come free and you will be able to get to the height switch as well as the drive belt and beater bar (good time to clean those out or check em)
The spring should fit into the plastic switch assembly. If it came out there is a good chance the plastic is toast you need a new switch. You can try a solvent adhesive or a good epoxy if the switch is busted up (my guess) but that may not last that long. On one I had I just manually set the height then put it back together as the switch wasn't available.

The spring is located at four locations.
1) Beside the internal motor.
2) Behind the operating buttons.
3) Under the assembly in where the brushes are fitted.Its for creating tension to the brushes.
4) At the wand for the extension.
The spring latch (D) on the wand allows
the extension to be adjusted to the
desired length. Release spring latch by
pushing it forward and adjust wand to
the desired length. Spring latch will lock
the wand into the selected position.--------------
For all other spring location the unit has to be opened.So that you can check out other two springs fitted and you can fix the third popped out spring.--------------
