You can order any parts needed at the below link. This is a parts diagram. The switch kit doesn't have a part number here, but it's the second item on the list.

I recommend using the below site to order. It provides a clear picture of the switch kit.

I have a Hoover windtunnel, model U5470900. The on-off switch is broken. How do I order the parts and what is the instructions for replacing the switch?


I think this is a common problem, as the actual switch is located behind the cleaning tools caddy. The switch is toggled via a long, plastic rod connected to the thumb slider on the handle. It's a comically poor design. I'm not sure, but I think you'd have to replace the entire handle assembly if the slider no longer works. An easier solution is to simply plug the vacuum into a surge protector with an on/off switch.

Windtunnel bagless vaccum model uh6000 on/off switch no longer working, must plug/unplug unit to use. Can switch be replaced?


Hi,

Yes they can be replaced and are relatively easy to fit. In my opinion, Hoover are one of the best vacuum manufacturers when it comes to obtaining spares and you should have no problem getting one. I did a (very quick) search and this switch apparently fits all Windtunnel Hoovers:

If this doesn't look like your switch, I suggest calling the supplier to verify which part you need for your model. If you'd rather get one fitted for you, any competent appliance enginner or an authorised Hoover service centre should be able to obtain and fit the part easily. I wouldn't pay more than $20-25 in total as they take about 5-10 minutes to fit, max.

Please click here to see the part diagram for the Hoover Windtunnel Self Propelled model U6446-900

Greetings from GoVacuum,

For replacing the switch, you need to remove the 2 screws that are in the back of the vacuum where the handle connects to the vacuum bag housing, Part # 50 on the first page of the diagram. After the screws have been removed, you may simply slide out the handle from the rest of the vacuum cleaner. You can then at this point view the outside of the switch, however as you'll find you can't replace it from this side. You'll then need to go into the where the tool caddy is in the front top part of the vacuum cleaner. Remove the attachments from the tool caddy, and then you'll need to remove the screws that hold the tool casing in place. Remove screws pictured # 35 on page 1, and the tool caddy is item # 17.

Once the screws and the tool caddy are removed, you may then see the rest of the switch, and the leads that connect to it. The easiest way to remove the screw is to use a flat head screwdriver and pry the switch out from the back of the vacuum cleaner after removing the leads from the switch. The new switch that you'll need to purchase is Hoover part number 28161067 which can be found online here: Hoover Windtunnel Main On / Off Switch Part Number 28161067.

I hope that this helps you replace the faulty switch in yours (and your parents) vacuum cleaners. If you need to place an order for the switch, please give us a call at 1-866-468-2288.

Thank you,

The on off swtich doesn't work on our hoover windtunnel vaccum cleaner. Can it be repaired?


Hi,
If its just the switch then by all means it can be repaired or replaced. If it needs replacement and the part is not available, you could replace it with a generic switch which may need some modification. Alternatively you can bypass the switch with the wiring and turn the machine on and off at the wall outlet.
Best wishes,

Are you sure it is beltless? What model do you have? Looking at another manual there may be a seperate on off switch for the brushes but would need to know your model to be sure.
