    The release lever is held in place by tabs molded into the base. You just need use a screwdriver or two to press the plastic tabs back and then push the release lever out. The new release lever can be just pushed into place and the plastic tabs will snap and hold it in place.

The most likely problem is the on off switch. but it could also be related to the motor or a connection.But definitely electrical in nature. suggest to take it in for service.

Hoover model U6425-920 falls backward


It sounds like the handle release lever is bad if the unit will not stand up. It's common when those units get a little older. It is unlikely you'll need the rear handle assembly (the part with the filter housing) but it does happen. Inspect the latch on the handle assembly to make sure it's not too worn to know for sure. Chances are, the handle release lever is just spent.
Here's the part you're looking for:

As long as you're into it the belts and roller are always a great investment. Replacing them will make it clean like new again. I'll include the links for those parts as well.

Foot controlled handle release lever is broken. Where to get parts?


I had same problem - the foot release pedal would not spring into place when unit was upright (but would work if you nudged in place with your foot). I installed a replacement part, and it didn't fix the problem. I cut out a small sqare of sponge and jammed it behind the flat end of the bent plastic spring on the release pedal, and it now springs back as it shoud. Hope this helps.

Stand up lever is plastic, broke when stepped on to release handle, can it be repaired, replaced with a better one, plastic breaks too easily?


The pedal release can be replaced but the base will need to be checked for cracks as well. if the base is broken most common is the socket the pedal release snaps into. some of the plastic parts have been made with better materials

Foot latch is broken. need to replace with new one. how does one access to remove the foot pedal latch. By foot latch, I mean the foot lever that releases the upright to lower the handle and begin...


it is accessed from the bottom underneath by the rear wheel. However, If there are and cracks on the pedal release socket area then the base will need replacement. parts are little cost but the unit needs to be completely disassembled.

It does not stand up straight


the plastic locking mechanism to keep it upright is broken. It can be fixed, but not sure it is worth fixing. I know its a pain to lean it up against the wall all the time, but the cost for replacing the part is not worth the expense in my opinion. Good luck!

Too much play in upright part of my Hoover upright wind tunnel


No. The handle release pedal is snapped into the bottom base assembly. Look underneath to check for cracks or damage in this area. this is the most likely issue. If it is, then the base will need to be repalced.

Off/on switch does not work


The on/off switch in Hoover Windtunnel upright vacuum cleaners is operated by a lever in the handle assembly.  remove the two screws on the back ovf the vacuum and see if the lever has bypassed the switch assembly.  if so, re-assembly should fix the problem.  It is also possible that the switch activating lever has broken.  If so, replace the activating lever.
