Hoover Savvy on-off switch does not work (very intermittant)

Answers :

Hi All-
\015\012I found the solution to this issue. You need to take the switch apart. Having a set of small jewelers screwdrivers from radio shack helps a lot.
\015\012First, take the switch enclosure off to expose the mechanics of the switch. There are 3 clips on either side that need to be worked free.
\015\012There are 4 springs inside the switch that push down 2 metal contacts (one other spring is used to hold the switch in position). If you expand all 4 springs (stretch them out about double there normal size) the increased pressure helps the switch make more solid contact and prevents arching which is what ruins the switch in the first place. After you stretch the 4 springs be sure to clean up the contacts on the switch chassis with a wire brush.
\015\012On the slider part of the switch there are 2 contacts which also need to be cleaned up. If you have a dremil tool use it to file a point on opposite the ends of the messed up contact. Be sure there are no burs after making the points . If there are burs the contacts will hang up and springs can't do there job. This is because there are slots the contacts need to float in on the plastic slide.
\015\012With the 4 springs stretched out it will be very difficult to put the switch back together. However, with some patients, mini needle nose pliers and jewelers screwdriver set you can be successful.
\015\012You may want take the switch circuit board off the vac before putting the switch back together (to do this remove the handle). The switch is much easier to put back together removed from the vac and on a clean well lit table. Assemble the switch in a place where you can find small parts on the floor if the contacts or springs shoot out during reassembly
\015\012This hoover savvy runs like a champ now, no more arching in the switch to destroy the contacts.
\015\012I would only attempt this if you are mechanically inclined… worst case scenario however is you break the switch and need to order the replacement though… oh yea make sure the thing is unplugged when you do the above procedure.
I contacted "Corporate" through the customer service number (330) 499-9499. You will have to tell your story to a few service reps & supervisors before they will finally let you speak to someone in corporate that can solve your FAULTY Savvy switch problem. Corporate reps are availible Mon-Fri 8-5 ET. After telling my switch saga to Debbie at corporate, I was directed to take the Savvy to a local Hoover Service Center in Anaheim, CA for the newly revised switch/handle at NO CHARGE!!! The new switch has a much smoother operation than the old switch. AND Hoover has a Happy Customer thanks to Debbie at Corporate!!!

My electrolux Epic 6500 power nozzle Model N109J will not work. It had an intermittent short which I thought I fixed (some of the insulation on the wires were pinched).
