Hoover Wind Tunnel Off-0n Switch

Can't get the handle off, but my vaccum doesn't have a rocker switch anyway, it slides up and down. Anyone know how to release the handle from the self-propell cable and what the part # is for the sliding switch?
Thanks!

    This is not an answer to my questions, I have removed all screws, but the handle is held in place by the self propel cable as I said. There is a hole on the back of the handle that, I believe, that you use to release the cable. I tried to push it up, down, and in and nothing happens. The cable is too tight to get the handle off.

My hoover wind tunnel just quit while vacuuming. It is dead??? Two years old used about every other week? Any suggestions?


Some Wind Tunnels by Hoover have a poor design in the switch on the handle. Sometimes the switch does not turn on all the way and will stop running. Other times you can't turn the unit off.

My new Hoover Wind Tunnel Upright UH50000 will not turn off unless I unplug it.


First I would be sure the handle was properly installed. Remove the two screws holding the upper handle in place and tap it bacwards to remove it. Set the switch inside to the OFF position. Next set both buttons on the handle to the OFF position and re-install the upper handle. If the switch still does not turn the vacuum on and off, the switch will need replacement.

Hoover Supreme wind tunnel upright model. I have a bad on-off switch. How do I replace it?


Take the two screw off the handle and then remove the upper handle devise. This will expose the real on/off switch which is on the top of the unit. There is a plastic actuator that rubs up against the switch when slide the plastic switch on the handle. What happens is the plastic wears out and does not make good contact with the real switch.

A simple solution is to wrap duct tape around the plastic actuator to make it thicker, which then makes more contact with the real switch. Put the cover back on with the two screws on the back. Slide the plastic on/off switch an it will turn on and off again!

The on off switch is stuck in the on position. I can'tfigure how to take the handle apart. Where can I find an on-line manual? Hoover wind tunnel up-right.


On the windtunnel the switch is not in the handle. It is located in the top of the body housing underneath where the handle meets the body. The slide lever you are pushing on to make the machine run is just a push rod.

Hoover wind tunnel vacuum will not turn off


You will have to replace the switch, Takeout the 4 screws on the back of the handle, it will slide off, then from the front, take out the 4 screws that hold the tool compartment on, it will then lift off and you can access the switch.

Replace on/off switch on hoover vacuum


My wife picked one up on the side of the road that someone had tossed. The power switch would not turn off. I took the two bolts out of the top part of the handle, and then removed the screws along the back. This will remove the required panels to access the On/Off switch. Once I found the actual on/off button, I found it to be frozen in the "ON" position. After manipulating it for a few minutes, I got the switch to work. This machine now operates great, and I now have a Hoover :)
