Hello,
I would advise you to ALWAYS to FIRST UNPLUG YOUR VACUUM before beginning any service procedure. Hoover U6437-900 / U6439-900 Windtunnel Vacuum. There is a hook on the bottom of the vacuum and @ the top by the handle as well. You may what to get a schematic or owner’s manual to see how they hook up because of the newer and different Model #’s for Hoover. The Hoover Self-Propelled works on when the handle is lower to a comfortable position then the self-propelled drive may just need and adjustment. There is a self-propelled rod that controls the self-propelled feature and it either needs adjustment or replacement or the part that hold it may be broken but either one can be fixed. So feel free to contact your local vacuum cleaner dealer with questions. 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.

Dismantle philips tc722/A to repair cable rewind


Briefly, you don't remove the top section, rather you get at the cable drive / release through the cord feed hole.

To do this I use a couple of large flat bladed screwdrivers and get fairly brutal with them to lever out the plastic surround to the cable inlet. it's tough plastic so don't be afraid.

Once the plastic surround is out you can see a piece of black plastic and white plastic. The black should fit in the socket on the end of the white. That's it, just push the white plastic down and the black seats the socket. To test, press the release mechanism and you should see how the black pulls the white drum release back toward the rear of the machine.

once you have done it once it takes about 5 minutes.

How do you attach the upholstery tube to the main unit? thanks!


The larger fitting slides into the front of the dirty water tank. Remove the lid and either remove the duct, or lift it and tilt it forward on more recent models. The hose fitting goes in with the opening up, and the "V" shaped end down. After replacing the lid, push the round connector down onto it's fitting under the trap door on top of the nozzle, being sure it is fully snapped in place.

Changing the belt


Always make sure your machine is unplugged from the outlet before replacing the belt.
Newer Oreck uprights have an access plate on the right hand side of the base (as you're looking at it from the front). Remove the one screw from the access plate and slide it forward. Snake the new belt around the brush roll pulley and then strrrrrrretch it back to the motor shaft. Replace the access plate.
If your model does not have an access plate; turn the machine upside down, Remove all screws. Lift the bottom plate off. Observe the position of the brush roll ends, One side of each end cap will have several notches cut into it,this is the 'new' side, the other side is smooth, this is the 'old' side. You can reposition the brush roll the the 'old' side if your bristles appear worn down.
With the brush roll still removed; place one end of the belt over the motor shaft first, place the other side of the belt around the brush roll pulley and stretch the brush roll forward until it is back in place.
Spin the brush roll by hand before replacing the cover to ensure the belt is not pinched.
Replace to cover.

Forward/back cable broke


The cable is user replaceable, but you will need to contact Hoover, or a parts center, to purchase the cable. You will remove the Upper Handle by removing the black screws at the base of the upper handle fit to lower handle (on back).
You will also have to remove the hood to loosen the one screw that holds the cable to the powerdrive gearbox.

Replacement wand for canister


Whne you had your first problem with it, the cord at the bottom probably should have replaced also, if one end gets scrotched, the other end does also. One big reason why this happens is connecting and dis-connecting the power head while power is still applied to it. When you hook your skillet and it is turned on, it will arc, so does the contacts on the hose and power head. That prong is rusty, it is scrotched. Don't know if you can substitude, you might try to find a shop that has other wands and see if you can find a fit, either that or buy the one that is supposed to be with it.

Self propel will go foward, but will not reverse. Seems like handle is all the way extended.


There is a cable that connects to the handle and goes down to the powerdrive transmission. It is visible at the actuator arm on the drive if you look at the bottom of the handle where it pivots on the main housing. It will be on the right hand side, front corner of the handle bottom. You should be able to see the cable connected to the arm of the drive and will move back and forth with the top handle. Sometimes, they break at this connection. The cable may be frayed and broken, or the acuator arm may be broken where the cable connects.
This could also be a simple worn belt problem. The roller is always rotating in a direction that pulls the machine forward and if the belt is worn, the roller will turn sluggishly but still enough to pull forward, but the belt also drives the transmission and a worn belt will not have the capacity to overcome the forces involved to propel the machine backwards. Always change the belt(s) yearly.(on average)

E drive problem. Self propelled feature drives in reverse, but not in forward.


This is basically the same problem with a Hoover power drive only the forward still drives albeit slowly and a slight "push" to keep it going. There has to be a common core type of drive failure !!
