How can I replace on off switch? It just went bad

Hello Aziz, and thank you for your question. The part number for the main switch is 270046001. It doesn't appear to be available through Sears Parts Direct. However, I am certain, with the part number, you should be able to find it on the internet. If you cannot, there should be a Hoover authorized service center somewhere near you. The price should be around $6.95, no more than $8.00, plus applicable sales tax.
Good luck, Aziz. And once again, thanks for your question.

Please ask me any questions regarding the efficiency, durability, and value of 99.5% of today's vacuum cleaners, residential and commercial. I am able to help, also, with your residential carpet cleaners and vapor steamers. I cannot answer questions such as "how much should I pay for my vac?" "how often should I change the bag, belt, filter?" or "how often should I vacuum?" , etc. I also will not advise you how to use equipment for other than its original application; including any disassembly or modification not approved by the unit's manufacturer.


I am the owner of a well-established (sixty-plus years), family-owned & operated vacuum retail and repair business. We are a full service/warranty center for 99.5% of vacuums manufactured. I, personally, have extensive hands-on experience with today's most popular vacuum cleaners, I have not only used the vacs in my own home, I have repaired them. I have been in the floor care industry for over 25 years.

I have attended certification seminars with the industry's trade association. My education, however, has been mostly hands-on, carrying on a sixty year old tradition in a brick and mortar 'mom & pop' location.
