Hello,
I would advise you to ALWAYS to FIRST UNPLUG YOUR VACUUM before beginning any service procedure. You have all the information needed but I would contact your local vacuum cleaner dealer and they may have a good used one or they may stock a new handle for your you or they can ship you one If you live too far from a factory authorized dealer. The vac shop that I worked in always had good used parts for ½ the price and it worked just fine – the only difference was the color and for the handle that would not make a difference in the performance and your wife could use the vacuum again. Also Hoover can ship the part to you providing they have it in stock. So if you need further assistance, please feel free to contact your local vacuum cleaner dealer in your area or in the yellow pages, or contact the factory phone number or website to further assist you with your questions.

Install upper control rod


Hi, it's Jeremy from Crucial Vacuum.

To attach the upper handle to your Hoover Steam Vac remove the clean solution tank (upper tank) from the deep cleaner. Then, attach the upper handle to the lower handle by pushing the upper handle down onto lower one. Use the provided bolts to secure the handles. Push the bolts into the accompanying holes on the front of handle. If the bolts do not go through the holes easily, your handle is not pushed completely down. When the handle sections are completely together, squeeze the trigger on the upper handle to snap the trigger rod into place.

If you require further help with your assembly, you can find a step-by-step manual at: http://www.searspartsdirect.com/partsdirect/user-manuals/f5865900-hoover-parts-steam+vac-manual

Belt Broke - Need to replace it


All you need to do is:

1) Get the actual model number of your Hoover. The information you gave is just what appears on the front of the unit, and that's not the model number. You will find the actual model number on a small tag at the rear of the vacuum near bottom, or on the bottom of the unit.

2) Take that model number to a local independent vacuum cleaner store (not a department / big box store, which will have very limited belt offerings), where they will set you up with a new one. Probably wouldn't hurt to call first just to make sure they carry them / have them in stock.

Hoover windtunnel vaccum U6445-900 motor not turning on. I removed the screws and located the contacts inside. There is an on-off switch which seems to be stuck Is there a way to replace this switch


There are a number of Hoover vacuums that are subject to a recall due to an overheating on/off switch. Check out this web site to see if your is included. You'll need the model number and serial number from the back of the unit. The manufacturer will direct you to an authorized repair center for a free replacement of the defective switch.

Self Propelled does not work


if you look below the headlamp of your vac you will find a cable that attach's to a piece called the actuator arm. either this piece is likely broke or the cable itself. always work the power drive smoothly or things will break. also could be that the smooth belt is stretched and will cause the same problem. belts should be replaced every 4 months. good news is all parts above should be under $5. dont let anyone tell you that you need a power drive assy, that usually isnt the case. good luck!!!

How do you dismantle handle to replace aforementioned hose?
Swing arm on unit goes all the way to the floor. Is this normal? Is there a "stop" broken that caused the hose to stretch, and ultimately break?


Hello,
I would advise you to ALWAYS to FIRST UNPLUG YOUR VACUUM before beginning any service procedure. Hoover SteamVac Carpet / Upholstery Deep Carpet Cleaner.

There are handle screws that you can get into the handle and then you can back track the replace the interior hose for the cleaning attachment. There should not be a stop that caused the hose to stretch ad break. The hoses after a while do get old crack and break due from normal use or if the bend @ sharp angles, this is common among all vinyl vacuum cleaner hoses. You should really check with your local factory authorized Hoover vac dealer in your area or , please feel free to contact your local vacuum cleaner dealer in your area or in the yellow pages, or contact the factory phone number or website to further assist you with your questions.

If this is a Hoover Steam vac, the turbine which drives the brushes is bad. If not a Hoover, then what is it, they are different, need brand and model number.

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.
