Having problems with your Hoover Vacuums ?

I think I picked up a nail with my Hoover Legacy Two, Vacuum Cleaner. It made a terrible sound and i sh ut it off immediately. I can't locate our manuel. How do I get into the propeller area, to extract this nail?


Answers :

I removed the plastic tip of the suction adjustment lever, and then easily pried the plastic housing covering and protecting the motor. Once the motor was exposed one could see the 1.5 inch screw, quite easily. With a pair of vise grips the screw, with some difficulty, was extracted from the fan wing. I replaced the housing and found the vacuum cleaner worked as well as before. I applied goop to the lever tip, put it back where it belonged, and allowed it to dry overnight.
