Hoover Mach 6 U5198-900 vacuum roller brush won't turn. I had opened the bottom to clean hair off the roller. the belts are not broken. When I closed it and turned it on, now the roller brush won't turn. I can push and turn it by hand, but not easily. Then I noticed the brush on/off switch is turned off, but when I step on it, it won't turn on. I was thinking I let something get out of place when I opened the bottom, but can't see what.

I replaced the belt on my Dirt Devil Featherlite Bagless Vacuum and the brush roller rubs and makes a very loud noise when turned on. I have gone exactly by the manual instructions and made sure the belt and end caps were on correctly, but the bristles still rub the back and it makes a very loud noise. Without the brush roller in the vacuum, it sounds and runs normal. What could the problem be?

The vacuum is making a noise like something is stuck when it is in the carpet position but not when in the floor position. I can't find anything that is stuck in the areas that I can see. I have cleaned the brush but it does not seem to want to turn. Does this machine need to be oiled so the roller will turn? Is there a way to check inside the motor? Do you think that because the brush won't turn that is making the noise? Do you know of any repair shops in the Lake Havasu City, Arizona area?
As far as the roller brush goes, yes, it does need to be cleaned. Follow the directions to remove it and clean as best you can of all debris. On both ends of the roller brush there will be two "holders" of sort that connect the brush to the frame o ... Dyson DC07 Bagless Upright Cyclonic Vacuum

I have a Filter Queen Majestic 360 and am having problems with the powerhead. There is a loud rattling noise in the powerhead, especially when I vacuum thicker carpet. I have replaced the motor, roller brush, and belt, but the rattling remains. It sounds like it is coming from the roller brush area,and when I turn the powerhead over, it rolls free and sounds fine. Any thoughts?
Hi there, as per your information i guess its a problem of power transformer. He can't supply the proper power in the motor & thats why the noise will come from the transformer. Thanks & waiting for your feedback. ... Filter Queen Majestic Canister Vacuum
My Dirt Devil Vibe bagless vacuum started giving off a burning smell. The brush roller was jammed with hair. I immediately shut it off and cut the hair out of the rollers with scissors until it turned freely. When I turned it back on, the smell was gone but there's no suction now. Did I ruin the belt or something else?
It's more likely there's a clog in the hose somewhere, possibly where it connects to the power nozzle. Detach hose and check the PN. \015\012If there's no clog in the PN, detach hose completely from machine and try to drop a marble or coin th ... Windsor SR12 Sensor Bagged Upright Vacuum

Vacuum either stops for no reason and can't be restarted without unplugging and waiting 1/2 hour to restart, or it simply will not turn on at all. The red light comes on when the "On" button is pressed. I took it back today for the 4th time in a month to where it was purchased. They called later and said it was running fine and they could not detect a problem. The last three times they have (1) replaced the roller brush, (2) "unclogged" the vacuum, and (3) "adjusted" the belt.
This sounds like it might be an overheating problem. \015\012\015\012Some vacuum motors are fitted with thermal cut out fuses or thermistors which cut off the flow of electricity to the motor when the temperature gets to high. It is possi ... Lindhaus Activa 30-38 Bagged Upright Vacuum

For some reason, when I tried to put the floor vacuum attachment back on and vacuum the carpet, I realized that the belt was not engaging. the belt is in there and not broken, but it is not turning the beater brush. it is just hanging loose around the brush. When I turn the wheel to engage the brush, it picks the belt up, but when I attach the vacuum to the attachment, the brush is just not turning.

Stopped running My mother's Oreck vacuum sound as if there was something bogging the rotating brush down. I pulled the bottom cover off and found nothing wrapped around or restricting the brush. I tried to finish vacuuming with the problem then I turned it off to move a chair and turned it back on it would do nothing.

The brush rollers on my hoover mach 5 won't turn. I've cleaned everything and checked the belts and everything checks out fine. I had the vacuum for about a year.
I had the same problem. The problem is the small v-belt for the roller brush (Hoover part# 38528034). Although it looks in good shape, it's been stretched too large for the idler to keep good tension. The tension on that belt varies with the ... Hoover Vacuums
My Oreck XL was working fine, then when I vacuumed a shag rug is started smoking and smelled like something is burning. (I changed the bag, checked for clogs--none found, and roller brush is turning. It has a metal handle.) Now I am afraid to use it.
Even though the brush is spinning, the belt is probably worn out and stretched. when you vacuum the shag carpet, it puts more drag on the brush. try running it on a shorter carpet or hard floor for a few minutes. if it doesn't smoke, then you know i ... Oreck XL2000 Bagged Upright Vacuum
