I assume this is a Kirby. If that is the case, go to this URL and select the correct model.

It will take you to an exploded view of the unit. Though not easy to read, it does show the hardware that holds the motor in place. You can also order parts via this URL.

Remove hoover vacuum fan


I don't know what model you have but on most vacuums you need to remove the nozzle housing from the vacuum, remove the cover over the motor to gain access to the motor. Remove any screws holding the motor in. Remove the motor and take the screws out to allow access to the fan. Remove the fan, replace and put back together exactly as it was before.

There are usually two portions of the top lid to be removed to gain access to the motor compartment. Lift the top lid, squeeze the hinge to get the side into the frame of the hinge so it can release and allow them to come out. The same procedure should get the second lid removed. Now you should be at the second cover assembly, which is removed by releasing two, one on each side, snap clip tabs. They are located on the side of the 3rd cover, near the front corner. The corner needs to be lifted till the little tab snaps loose, then when both sides are loose this cover can be removed. Keep an eye out for screws that may need to be removed from time to time on some of the covers. They should be fairly self-evident when they're there. This should put you into the motor cavity so that you can lift the motor out , disconnect the wires and go check the motor.

The motor will need either a rebuild with new bearing, or replacement. Parts should be no more than $100 .EASY project. 20 minutes max fro a pro shop. If you can tie your shoes you can do this one yourself.
If replacing, upgrade to a ball/ ball ( double ball bearing) motor, same height, generally an AMTEK Lamb. A ball ball motor will give longer life
Under the cap you have removed are 3 screws.
You will detach them last. Note they are slightly offset in their pattern.
Open the vac as though changing the cone. Remove the plastic cone by undoing the center screw. Remove the inner filter disc and change . This should be changed every 6 months...
Now you will see three, screws or nuts in a triangle pattern. Detach them. Remove the rubber switch pedal from above .
.Now detach the upper 3 screws and the motor housing will lift off. Voila. Inspaect the cord inside and out for wear at it's socket. Now is the time to shorten if required.
There should be an insulating disc about the size of a coin between the motor top and the screen below the vac handle. You MUST reinstall on the new motor in case of a short in the vac.
Remove the foam or felt "muffler" and clean or replace.
Remove the wire nuts and note the wiring pattern for the switch, motor and power head. Note the motor position versus the cord. Mark with felt pen and reinstall the same.
Do not twist the wires when reinstalling, only twist the wire nuts. Check that they are tight and reinstall in opposite order.
Please post back if tehre is a problem or this helps

Removing cover to motor


You will have to access the motor by removing the entire bottom brush housing and tilting the vac motor shaft out of the housing. Once released you will have a main body and brush housing.
There are visible motor housing screws in the lower portion of the main housing and if I recall there may be twoscrews inside the bag chamber as well

Hoover U5750-900 just shuts off


I have a similar bagless model U5757-900 that is shutting off. I disassembled the unit, and what I found is that the motor front bearing had accumulated enough grime so that the bearing locked up. When this happened, the bearing outer shell spun in the plastic housing, causing it to soften, from friction heat. This allowed the motor shaft to become off center from the normal, centered axis of rotation. Once this happened, the rotor inside the motor began to rub against the stator, the fixed part of the motor inside. This loaded down the motor, causing excessive current draw, which caused the overheat switch to activate, shutting down the machine.

In your case, it might not be as bad as in my case.

Remove the dual-cannister dirt cup.

To find out, disassemble the unit lower section: on bottom, remove 4 screws around the rotating brush housing. Remove the brush cover, then remove the brush, then remove the belt. Remove the wide plastic housing behind the brush. Remove the two screws, from the bottom, that retain the upper hood. Remove the hood.

On the back, remove the two screws and hose retainer going from the base to the upright section. This releases the hose from the lower section.

Now press the tilt release, and lay back the upright section. Remove the four screws, two on each side, from the trunnion caps, where the upright section tilts on the lower section. Remove the trunion caps. Remove the upright section from the lower section.

Remove the headlight cover (2 screws).

From the back, remove the single screw retaining the bezel above the headlight area.

Slide the bezel upwards and remove.

Remove the four screws that retain the motor cover clamshell. One is from front, and other 3 from rear.

Open motor clamshell halves to expose motor.

Note orientation/position of the three wires on the motor, and remove those wires. Lift motor out.

To open the motor, gently tap the edges of the impeller housing (aluminum shell) on the edge of the shell, in the little gaps around the shell.

Using a 1/2" socket, remove the nut in the center of the impeller. This is a LEFT HAND NUT. TURN RIGHT TO LOOSEN IT.

Gently wiggle the impeller while pulling until impeller comes off of motor shaft. Use a glove so the impeller doesn't cut your hand.

Remove the large flat washer on the motor shaft. Remove the small sleeve from the motor shaft.

On the brush end of the motor, using a small screwdriver, pry out on the brush holders. Set them aside.

Remove the two screws holding motor together. Seperate the motor front from motor rear. Withdraw the motor rotating part.

Look into the inside of the stator, inspecting for bright, shiny areas where the rotor may be dragging on the stator. If you see these, then the front bearing, in the plastic motor frount, is fried. I don't think Hoover sells this part alone. Also inspect the plastic front bearing retainer to see if there is any melting that has allowed the bearing to become off center.

In any case, if there is scrubbed out places inside the stator, then the motor requires replacement, about $70 for the motor... You might be able to find an entire new vac for less... or, like me, find one on the side of the street where someone has tossed out a unit.

You may luck out and find that the impeller unit is just filled with some trash so air cannot get to the motor for cooling... or you may have a shot motor.

Hoover windtunnel will NOT turn on


You have to remove the motor cover, There I believe 5 screw, take off the light lens and remove the screw holding the light. It should then pull off. You say you have power to the Vac, but do you have power to the motor. There also is a thermo by the motor, sometimes they open up, then the motor won't run.
