Hello,
I would advise you to ALWAYS to FIRST UNPLUG YOUR VACUUM before beginning any service procedure. It sounds to me like you have a broken handle release lever and that would be inexpensive to fix or repair. You are either missing the spring or the handle release lever is broken. Feel free to contact your local vacuum cleaner dealer in your area. 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.

How do I change the selector switch


The easiest way is to lock the vacuum in the upright position and then tilt back slightly (raising the drive wheels) slide the carpet / hard floor switch to the desired position.

Check the plastic part, which the the self propelled cable is attached to. (release the handle, tilt it back. You should be able to see the cable attached by a screw to a black plastic arm.) It is either broken or the cable is lose.

My machine (Hoover Wind Tunnel - bagless) is only 1 yr. old. The agitator brush doesn't turn all the time. I know it's not supposed to turn when in the upright position. However, it only seems to work when...


Sounds like you should do two things: 1- Remove and clean the beater brush of all debris as best you can. At the end of the brush you will see a hard rubber piece, at both ends, that holds it in place in the body of the vacuum. Add some WD40 between the brush and these pieces and turn until they move freely. 2- When you reassemble, put a new belt on.
This should be all you need to do. If you find this information to be of help, I would appreciate a Thumbs Up from you. Be well, Paul

Old Hoover Convertible Upright U4109 keeps breaking belts. I just replaced the belts twice and both broke within 2 minutes.


Did you make sure the brush that the belt turns is free to move? Sometimes they get bound up and will not turn and as a result, the belts either burn or break. Remove the roller brush, clean the ends and remove any debris, lubricate the ends of the rollers where they are held by the stationary brackets and re-install with belt in correct position. Belt must be installed in the proper manner as well.

Brush wont spin, belt is perfect


It sounds like the motor that spins the beater brush is burned out,If it is under a yr old it should be covered by the manufacturer warretee. Find a Hoover service center that does warrentee repairs.

My Hoover Z 400 collapsible vacuum won't lock in the upright position. I pull the pin to change from a cannister to an upright, but the unit won't lock into position


this just happened to me. i took the vacuum completely apart and found that there is a locking plastic "tooth". this had snapped off but still it the track. the damage was bad but i was able to wash of all the lube off it and used a 2 part epoxy glue to put the tooth back into place. it works ok now. Not like new but it will hold. this was sorta easy but i enjoy fixing things. If your not handy i wouldnt recommend you try it. i am in the process to making an aluminum version of the tooth so it wont break again.

I have good suction at brush, but no suction in hose connection.


Please unscrew the hose connection to the back panel. Is there suction there while in the upright locked position? If so, visually check the hose inside for obstructions.

My Hoover U8143-900 does not stay "locked" in the upright position anymore?


Could be one of 3 things:

When you push it into the upright position can you manually pull the footswitch up and lock it? If so, the spring isn't set right. If the footswitch isn't moving at all, the plastic may be broke (Not so good), and if it's intermitted (As in you have to wiggle/fight with it to make it lock) it may just have crud in it. Canned air and some cleaning may fix it.

make sure the vacuum is in the upright (locked position) - when you lower the handle, this puts tention on the belt. If it is in the upright and locked position, there is plenty of clearance (unless you have the wrong belt.

Dirt cup lock on windtunnel vacuum won't lock


It may have to be taken off and then re-installed, but if it is only 1 and 1/2 old, then it is under warranty. There is a full year on Hoover vacuums. Just take proof of purchase with you and take it to a warranty repair shop. You should have their 1-800 to call and find the closest shop. Warranties are void if you temper with it.
