Having problems with your Hoover U6437-900 / U6439-900 Windtunnel Bagged Upright Vacuum ?

Accessing self-propelled cable

\015 The self-propelled does not work. How do I find a diagram of how to access and replace. I need to know if I just need the cable or more parts.\015

Answers :

The first thing to do is replace the flat belt (38528035), this belt will stretch after a short period, it is the one that drives the drive mech. Also the cable may have broke, if you look down on the right side, you can see the cable, did it break there or is the #34 actuator(#43143046) that the cable attaches to broke. The cable (#43211019)sometimes breaks on the upper end #14, take the handle off and you will be able to tell.
