Ok, Lets start at the beginning. First make sure there is propane in the tanks! Gas can leak rom these tanks sometimes at a very small rate and over time they can go empty if there is a loose fitting somewhere. When you turn on the stove is there any air or hissing sounds coming from the burners? Air can get in the lines and when you turn the gas on, you get nothing but air for several seconds till the air bleeds out then you get the gas. Hold a lit match next to the burner and watch to see if there is any movement to the flame on the match, movement would let you know if there is any air coming from the burner, hold it there for a few seconds and see if any gas comes thru and this will then lite the burner. I always have to turn my stove on for a while to get gas thru the lines so the appliances work after the tanks have been filled or after it sits for a while. Once you get gas thru to the stove you can try your heater, this may also take sewveral tries till all the air is purged from the lines so don't get frustrated, sometimes this can take a while! Then the next thing is the water heater, the gas valve on these has a selection for pilot lite, turn the red knob so thet the cut out in the knob lines up with the gas valve and you have to push and hold this down for a minut or longer to get gas to the burner. Once the burner lights hold the pilot knob down for another minute to make sure all the air is out of the system. Once these are done you should be good to go till next time your tank runs dry and has to be filled. If you determine there is gas in the tank but it is not flowing to the appliances, double check all the shut off valves. The tank should have a diagram on the valve to let you know which way it turns for on and off. Do you have a built in tank on this model? If you have the two removable tank set up, make sure the auto switching valve is set correctly and you have it on to the tank that is full. If you still aren't getting gas, try calling an RV dealer and ask them if there is another valve somewhere that might need to be turned on. There migt be a shut off in the line somewhere, but this is not common.

Model U90-MA-R. How do I replace broken belt?

Remove the bottom cover that is over the beater brush by removing 6 or 7 screws. That will expose the beater brush which will most likely be held on by two screws and a bracket. Remove the beater and loop the belt around the grooved side and around the drive pin. Put back together and done.

Unable to get the flow gauge to spin

The heater is plugged up or the pump bad or both. Usually the heater take it apart. Becareful of the VERY VERY small red o ring around each screw. You can take it apart and clean out all the build up from the cheap soap everyone uses. It cakes up in the heater.

Switch bad need to bypass switch

Monica, I highly recommend you replace the switch. By passing the safety of a switch on any appliance or tool endangers both yourself and those around you. Just to by pass the switch, you would need to disassemble the appliance. If you are going to do this then get a replacement part and replace it. :) Safety comes first , especially where mechanical and electrical devices are used.

Hoover WindTunnel, month-old belt, now too large to turn brush

I suspect you have been bitten by the Chinese bug.
A very large percentage of replacement parts for all manner of appliances and vehicles are now being conterfeited in China who we should know by now has no respect for the intellectual property of others and a flood of low-quality stuff is being made as 'knock-offs' since they are generally easy to fabricate with fairly primitive means. Our eldest son just returned a supposedly 'new' steering pump for his (US) car but this one at least had China as the origin shown on the package.
Make sure though that the brush roller turns freely and isn't being impeded by trapped thread in the bearings.

Suction problem

first thing you need to do is replace the disc filter benieth the conical shaped shroud. also there is batting in the upper part of the vacuum tat should be replaced once every 4 years as well as it gets clogged with carbonfrom the motor. this increases the air flow through the vacuum keeping the motor cool and increasing your suction as well. the disc filter benieth the conical shroud should be replaced every 6 months under normal use and every 3 months under really dusty situations, and if vacuuming up fine talk powder every month. also check for a clog in the hose by hooking the hose up to the blower port on the top of the vacuum.

Hoover mach 3 cyclone vacuum shut off during useage. can't turn it on. cleaned it out and let it sit thinking overheated? this is 2 months old. help?

I had same problem. Turned out to be the filter that sits above the waste cannister. Remove the waste cannister. There is a little orange lever that releases the filter. It was caked with dirt not allowing any air flow causing the motor to overheat.

This foam filter gets dirty pretty fast.
