You need to unscrew the screw at the back / base of the handle. The
whole handle section will need to be slid backwards. Best way is to
unscrew the screw on the rear approx 5 turns and then bump the end of
the screwdriver. A few more turns then bump the end of the screwdriver
again. The whole handle will eventually slide backwards and fall off.
Then unscrew the two screws at the front (near switch) and the front
switch cover plate will lift up (hinging at the top). This reveals the incoming wires etc.

I had the same problem with my Hoover s3639. The cord rewinder started squeaking, and retracted less and less of the cord each time, until it finally stopped retracting the cord at all. Here is what I did. I hope it will work for you as well. Open the covered tool storage and remove the tools. You should see three screws. Unscrew the screws. Remove the cover. You should see the motor for the vacuum and the cord rewinder. Between the vacuum motor and the white wheel where the cord is, you should see two brass wheels that turn into each other in order to operate the cord rewinder. Spray a small amount WD-40 between the two brass wheels. This should solve your problem.
Solution for Hoover SteamVac (F7452-900) brushes not spinning
Uses the turbine model and same solution would be similar.Root cause is simply the main gear attached to turbine becomes stuck.This problem should not happen as often as I see other people also having this problem.Must be a poor design on Hoover’s part.It takes about 30 minutes and a Phillips screw driver and wrench.Pretty easy, just have to remember what screws went where.
Remove brushes, and front suction cover
On the bottom of the machine:
Remove the 4 screws behind brushes which attach the top faceplate
Remove the 2 screws from base in the sunken holes
Remove the two long silver screws from base which connect all the way to turbine assembly
Stand machine upright
Remove the floor select switch handle
Remove 1 screw near the center beside the intake hole
Remove the 2 screws over the rear wheels
Remove faceplate cover, the front will need to be gently pried over the clear plastic part, be careful about the upright disengaging lever under faceplate, move it under the metal wire
Remove the 2 screws in the front of the turbine assembly
Remove the 2 hoses on either side
Disengage the bar on the floor selector switch
Pull out the turbine assembly
Remove the 4 screws and 3 clips to separate the assembly
Remove the filter (which is most likely clean since, cleaning this is the manufactures only solution)
Remove the large white gear and with a wrench remove ball bearing
Remove other large white gear
Note that the metal gear attached to turbine will not move (this was my problem), with a wrench gently grab metal gear and twist free.Spin turbine to make sure it moves freely. Put everything back together again and you should be good to go.
