Having problems with your Vacuums ?

Have a Hoover Model F5887-900 upright carpet cleaner. I am having issues with the attatchments. The brushes will not spin on the handheld attatchment and the solution trickles out. Any ideas? Thanks, Chuck

HI ,
\015\012 I AM BILL AND I HAVE A SIMILAR PROBLEM. I HAVE FOUND THAT THERE IS A SHIFTER VALVE NEAR THE REAR OF THE MOTOR AREA.
\015\012IF YOU LAY THE HANDLE DOWN FLAT YOU CAN SEE WHERE THE VACUUM HOSE ATTACHES TO THE SUCTION MOTOR. CHECK THERE TO SEE IF IT HAS COME APART.
\015\012
\015\012NEXT CHECK THE SHIFTER VALVE AND SPRING MOVE ROTATE 1/3 OF A TURN . WHEN YOU LOWER THE HANDLE THE SHIFTER HAS TO BE IN THE FLOOR MODE FOR THE SUCTION TO THE MAIN FLOOR SCRUBBER AND SPIN THE BRUSHES.
\015\012TO USE HAND TOOLS THE HANDLE HAS TO RAISE UP AND LOCK TO OPERATE ANY HAND TOOLS.
\015\012 A PLASTIC LEVER BREAKS BY A SPRING CALLED THE SHIFTING LEVER. A SHIFTER VALVE LEVER IS THE RIGHT REAR, THE HANDLE DOWN. GOOD LUCK
\015\012
\015\012MY PROBLEM ACTUALLY THE SHIFTER DOOR AND I HAVE A LOT OF SEARCHING TO DO TO FIND THAT.
\015\012OH! BY THE WAY THE LEVER PART # IS 90001320 $2.16 + SHIPPING AT SEARS PARTS DIRECT

Hoover WindTunnel S3765. The motor spins and the belt turns when I turn the brushes on, and the brushes will spin. The problem is that when I do this on carpet, the brushes stop spinning. As soon as I pull the "head" off the carpet, the brushes spin again. It's almost as if the vacuum suction is too great. I took the head apart and watched the motor turn the metal spindle that the belt rests on, and the belt turns as well.

Brush turning slowly while shampooing. It starts out fast, but after a minute or 2 the brush is not spinning very fast. I have powered it off and let it cool down. I just started out so I can't believe the engine is over heating, just doing 2 rooms, can't even get through the first room. If I take the brush attachment off, then put it back on and then turn it on, it spins fast, but after a a few minutes, it's spinning softly/slowly again. Kirby diamond edition
