I need to replace the actuator pivot arm on my Hoover Wind Tunnel to fix the self propel feature. I can see where it needs to go but I can not seem to get the cover off the vacuum so I can get to it. How do I do this?

I just did this; it wasn't easy, but i succeeded. Buy part online from Sears parts; they have it. (38458022) Pull off the plastic dial indicator from the top of the vac. Put it in your pocket. Pry off the plastic housing by pulling it away from the body. It will pull off. Slide the belt off the pulley. Remove the motor and handle and bag(it is easy: four phillips screws on top. I had to replace one of the motor retainers because it had snapped. Now comes the hard part. Pry out the old lever using screwdrivers and force. Slide the new lever down into the gap so that the pins go into the holes. It was not an easy job, but I did succeed.  Good Luck.   Jim B

Order Slider Release (7.93, vacpartswarehouse) Pull off 'tank.' Remove 3 Screws for Foot Detent Lever. Pull off. Remove old slider release and spring (verify it's broke.) Replace with new. I just did this today after a year of dealing with it.

There are 2 tabs on the bottom front edge of the switch plate which slide under the metal top cover. Make sure these tabs have not gotten bent upward so they will not slide under the top cover. If they are bent, simply pry them open. Also, note that the handle pivot has a sliding latch on it to allow the handle to be fully lowered. To lower the handle flat, push the little knob inward.

How do you replace the handle release lever on the hoover windtunnel 6425-900


The release lever is held in place by tabs molded into the base. You just need use a screwdriver or two to press the plastic tabs back and then push the release lever out. The new release lever can be just pushed into place and the plastic tabs will snap and hold it in place.

Stand up lever is plastic, broke when stepped on to release handle, can it be repaired, replaced with a better one, plastic breaks too easily?


The pedal release can be replaced but the base will need to be checked for cracks as well. if the base is broken most common is the socket the pedal release snaps into. some of the plastic parts have been made with better materials

It could be a broken handle release, but it also could be the the clamps where the handle asm, and the base hold together came use, this will cause this problem on some Dirt Devils. The top has to come off to check this out.
