SOURCE: replacing a fraayed and twisted power cord on a Hoover windtunnel upright

It has a 35 foot cord on it, but I think an 16g wire should be ok. It may say on the wire what gauge it is and I think that it is either 17 or 18 guage.

How to replace power cord on Hoover Windtunnel...
Posted by SaxTeacher on Apr 15, 2008
The cord on my Hoover Windtunnel upright vacuum is damaged from having been run over while vacuuming. I purchased a replacement power cord, agitator brush, belt, and filters from the Hoover web site.
I have installed the new brush, belt, and filters. I'm ready to install the replacement cord, but I can't figure out how to access the interior part of the vacuum! I tried removing many different screws but none of them seemed to give me access to the necessary area. Any help would be appreciated!



Hello,
I would advise you to ALWAYS to FIRST UNPLUG YOUR VACUUM before beginning any service procedure.
Hoover U6616-900 Windtunnel Bagless Upright
Depending on where the cord comes out, you may want to check the owner’s manual for the exploded view of the cord area. Usually the cord comes out of the handle and there should be handle screws to release the existing cord and when you replace the cord mark the wires so that you will replace the new cord in the same manner. If it comes out of the body of the vacuum there are recessed screws that will let out into the vacuum to replace the cord. You don’t want to exceed the repairs cost to the price of what you paid for it. The decision should be yours, example: if the repairs costs are $200.00 and you paid $279.99 then @ that point you would have to decide if the repair costs are worth or do you want to pay the lower cost of repair and continue on. Just a suggestion... You may want to check with your local vac dealer. 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.

Need help installing belt on Hoover self propelled upright vacuum

Hello,
I would advise you to ALWAYS to FIRST UNPLUG YOUR VACUUM before beginning any service procedure. Hoover Ultra U6430-900 Wind Tunnel Bagged Upright. The best way to install the belt on a Hoover to replace one or both of the belts @ the same time for the best cleaning. The average belt change is every 4 to 6 months for best results. There is a tool that looks like a screwdriver that has a right or left angle on the end that serves as a belt puller and to hook the belt(s) onto the brushroll 1st and then take your puller and then pull or stretch the belt onto the motor pulley. 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.

SOURCE: hoover windtunnel dirt finder light stays red

I'm not sure about a 3 month old vac, I'd probably go the warranty route. However, for the older vacs thy start getting false positives. The sensor is simply a microphone hooked to a computer chip detecting sounds of dirt entering the bag.
To rig it to start working, you'll need to remove the tool accessory tray and elbow that enters the back of the vac, and attached to the bag. This will reveal the microphone at the elbow, and wire that runs into the bottom area of the vac. When on, a large amount of air comes from the bottom screw and area where the wires enter. My fix was to clean up the microphone contact points a little bit with a screwdriver, and then leave the vac running while putting in dampering in the hole at the bottom, and around the back of the elbow. Cotton balls and electrical tape at the bottom hole, and napkins around the outside of the elbow (wedged between the back of the vac assembly and elbow did the trick). The schematic for the vac is here: http<colon>//www<dot>vacsrus<dot>com/CartGenie/pg_U6485900<dot>asp
Look for micrphone.
