Question about Hoover U8171-900 / U8172-900 / U8173-900 / U8174-900 Savvy Bagless Upright Vacuum
When I turn on my Savvy U8172-900 upright vacuum, there is suction, but the brush will not turn and the lights will not come on. I have cleaned the canister and removed any dirt from inside the vacuum.
I am going through the same problem right now!!! I ordered and replaced the main switch (it comes all together, switch and new handle). I also replaced the small circuit board under the top cover of the base (because that was noticably burned out.
I plugged it in and started vacuuming and the circuit board FRIED OUT AGAIN! The sweeper motor worked and then stopped again because of the circuit board. I don't want to dump any more money in this than I have to...............NEED A SOLUTION without taking it to a vacuum cleaner place. HELP!

It's not the switch that is breaking on these models, it's the circuit board. If you take the lower brush assembly apart, you will see that your circuit board is fried. I call Hoover, and this is a part they do not sell as the get it third party, and do not want the liability.

If its not the belt or agitator it could be that the motor burnt out (this is what might be wrong with mine because everything else seams to be fine when checked with a multimeter). The upper switch assy. is part #48663238 $27.49 @ searspartsdirect.com the lower switch in the foot assy. area (by belt) is part #91001026 $6.49. Sears also gives parts list with schematics.

Check the belt. Also remember the power brush will stop when the handle is lifted to the upright position.
