Searching for parts on eBay is HELPFUL...
(if only to get an idea... what the whole part looks like)...
Here I did a NETWORK SEARCH...
HOOVER U6434... PRODUCED
(very high 5-Star)
Call them and ask if mere mortals can insert the new part.
Searspartsdirect... (Improving service (needed to)):

Hoover.com doesn't have a manual specific to your model but there is one similar which will show how to remove the upper handle from the body.
Do you have a replacement switch? If not I believe you can buy one from Hoover (the switch and/or the upper handle assembly). Unfortunately your model isn't listed on the website, is this a new vacuum? I recommend giving them a call, that would be the easiest way.
Also remember when working with electronics to unplug the vacuum. Even when there is no power residual electricity can remain in the wires. If you feel unsure, take it to a repairman.
Hope this helps!

The belt for this machine is very specific and only one size fits. It is not uncommon for vac shops to sell the wrong belt because the proper belt is not available from normal supply houses, so they will substitute something they think will work.
Also, assuming you do have the right belt, check the tension arm that drops down on the v-belt when the handle is brought back. This arm has a wheel/bearing with a plastic "tire" or trim that rolls on the belt to tighten it. Sometimes, this tire cracks and falls off and then the remaining bearing won't have the necessary tension to tighten up the belt.

S3765-040, power head would not run when the handle was elevated. Problem was with wiring from connecter plug on power head swivel into the power head itself, because of the design the wire tends to develop a short. Test it by turning on the vacuum, elevate the handle, then when it stops running move the visible part of the wiring with you foot/hand. If it starts/stops then you have a short. Replacement part was about $10.

Hoover emailed me back right away with a solution and a thorough explanation for a very easy fix. I guess I should have thought of that myself. Oh well, but that did not cost me anything. Now that makes me happy.
