Those springs are tricky to get back in. you can use the flat end of a screwdriver to hold them down and compress them. I would recomend taking it to a proffesional to get it put back together right before you break the plastic and cost yourself some big money.

I took the filter out of my Windtnnel Pro Pet to clean it (not with water) I put it back in and now the vacuum wont turn on.


I'm going to guess that when you put it back together it didn't quite go back in correctly. There could be a switch that prevents it from turning on if the filter is not installed. Make sure that it is seated correctly. I hope thats all it is.

Dyson Upright Animal Model DC 42 lost power head rotation. Took apart floor plate and also switch assembly. The switch assembly has two springs of which one fell out before we could determine how to put together. Does any one have an image of the spring locations in the switch assembly?

I have taken henrys lid off to look at the motor now he has stopped working


It's possible when you took the lid off one of the wires has come off a switch or the field. It could also mean the motor has gone. Recommend you get it checked out.

Reset button or Fuse on my Infinity?


Ok, I took it apart, cleared the clog out, and put it back together. It wouldn't switch to "carpet". Got no answer on my question. Took it apart again, only I went further. Took apart the bottom - brush out, all inside bottom parts out, cleaned all that part of vac. No clogs down there. Ran the carpet/bare floor switch back and forth several times while I had it apart. Put it all back together and it worked fine. Still didn't find a fuse or reset button...

The spring goes inside that pedal that you step on to advance the height. Place that spring in that pedal and then place the pedal into its' groove, then put the axile and wheel assembly over the pedal and put your screws back into the mounting sections.

Hoover Savvy on-off switch does not work (very intermittant)


Hi All-

I found the solution to this issue. You need to take the switch apart. Having a set of small jewelers screwdrivers from radio shack helps a lot.

First, take the switch enclosure off to expose the mechanics of the switch. There are 3 clips on either side that need to be worked free.

There are 4 springs inside the switch that push down 2 metal contacts (one other spring is used to hold the switch in position). If you expand all 4 springs (stretch them out about double there normal size) the increased pressure helps the switch make more solid contact and prevents arching which is what ruins the switch in the first place. After you stretch the 4 springs be sure to clean up the contacts on the switch chassis with a wire brush.

On the slider part of the switch there are 2 contacts which also need to be cleaned up. If you have a dremil tool use it to file a point on opposite the ends of the messed up contact. Be sure there are no burs after making the points . If there are burs the contacts will hang up and springs can't do there job. This is because there are slots the contacts need to float in on the plastic slide.

With the 4 springs stretched out it will be very difficult to put the switch back together. However, with some patients, mini needle nose pliers and jewelers screwdriver set you can be successful.

You may want take the switch circuit board off the vac before putting the switch back together (to do this remove the handle). The switch is much easier to put back together removed from the vac and on a clean well lit table. Assemble the switch in a place where you can find small parts on the floor if the contacts or springs shoot out during reassembly

This hoover savvy runs like a champ now, no more arching in the switch to destroy the contacts.

I would only attempt this if you are mechanically inclined… worst case scenario however is you break the switch and need to order the replacement though… oh yea make sure the thing is unplugged when you do the above procedure.
