Having problems with your Hoover U8171-900 / U8172-900 / U8173-900 / U8174-900 Savvy Bagless Upright Vacuum ?

Hoover Savvy self propulsion not working

\015 I have the Hoover Savvy U8174-900. The on/off switch is acting up (hesitates) as if it is shorting out. Recently, the self-propulsion feature has stopped working. The carpet brush seems not to be turning as well.\015

Answers :

The switch contacts are burned out and the switch must be replaced. This link sells the whole handle with switch but, check your serial number to be sure to get the right one. If you can use a Philips head screwdriver, you can do this easily.
