Hoover Windtunnel u6630-900: How does the valve spring attach to the valve?

A:

When it comes to attaching parts on your appliance or tools it can be a challenge without any instructions. While you are waiting on an expert to answer your question, I found your owners manual in the Manage My Life website. I have attached the link below. Have a nice day!

I know that it can be very frustrating to have issues with your vacuum. There is a long piece that snaps to the post (#39) and a short piece that rubs the housing to the rear of the assembly (#41). Remove the Trunnion Cover on the same side that the assembly is on, this will allow you to lift the post to clear the transmission. Assemble the two parts the bent end of the spring is on the small piece (#41) and the straight end goes in the notch of the larger piece (#39). When assembled the two pieces are pointing 180deg from each other and have a hard stop. Lift the post and snap the assembly on. Put it back together. The purpose of the spring is allow the cam surface of the smaller piece rub on the housing near the handle as the assembly pushes the door shut and to absorb any excess tension there by removing the need for any adjustment. The assembly pushes the door shut when you lift the handle and suction opens the door when the handle is lowered. You will want to move the handle up and down to open and close the valve. This will show you how it works. If you need further assistance, please reply to this thread. Thank you for using Manage My Life.

I replaced the power drive cable and the actuator arm, and I think I've put everything back together correctly, And I'll be replacing belts and filters so I have an almost new vacuum when I'm done! I see how the suction diverter spring and parts are supposed to go but the one and only thing that's in the way of my doing this entire job myself is that I can't get that stupid spring around and in place for the diverter. I'm about to concede defeat and take it to the repair shop!

I nailed part #39 to a board to hold it in place, and put the spring on the post and used another nail to hold the straight arm of the spring in place. Then I put #41 on the post of #39 and am trying to get the spring around so the L shape arm goes in place on #41. The problem is that as I tighten the spring around to get it in place, it tightens around #41 so I can't push it down in place past the hard stop when the spring is where it should be. I hope that makes sense. Any ideas?
