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

Hoover windtunnel U6476-910 switch doesn't work

\015 For awhile it wouldn't turn off, now it wont turn on or off- switch seems broken\015

Answers :

What has worked for me on this vacuum is once the handle is off and the on-off switch is visible, work it back and forth manually.  Mine was very stiff and it did not get any better.   I went to radio shack and bought a spray can of Control/Contact Cleaner and Lubricant. It comes with a small piece of tubing.  I put the tube into the top edge of the switch and pushed the button FOR A FRACTION OF A SECOND and then did the bottom edge of the switch.   I worked the switch manually a couple of times.   I repeated the spraying one more time and the rocking.   I put it all back together and has been working fine for me.   This stuff is made for electrical contacts...  HOWEVER, use it very very sparingly!!!  ALSO, a new can has a bit of pressure so watch out that you don't blow some back at you.   JOE
This has happened to me on at least two of my well used hoover windtunnels that I've owned. Easy fix: take the handle off and tightly wrap duct tape or electrical tape around the black plastic "switch rod". Doing that will make it thicker and thus able to activate the on/off switch again.

The switch on our Hoover Windtunnel vacuum cleaner is not working. I have located the replacement part on your website...part#Ho-28161067, I've removed the wires from the switch. Is there any trick to actually removing and replacing the switch itself? It seems to be in there rather tight.

I have a hoover windtunnel upright vacuum, It will not shut off and I have to unplug it to do so. If I take apart the upper handle and manually flip the internal switch it works just fine, only when using the external switch on the handle, wont shut off.


This is a common problem with this machine. The switch has too much resistance to be turned on and off with the switch button and rod. If you put in a new switch, ( # 28161075 ), your problem should be fixed. ... Vacuums

We have a dyson dc 07 animal the machine was working fine then switched off after returning to the machine minutes later it wouldnt switch on, i removed on off switch cover and used a short piece of wire across the brown wires flicked the wall switch and it worked, aha i thought faulty switch aquired a new one to no avail and now even the short piece of wire trick doesnt work, has the motor died do you think, it wasnt over heating or making strange noises prior to refusing to work
