On my Hoover Savvy U8174-900 on carpet setting, the brush spins when I pull the vacuum towards me, but stops when I push it forward. Belt is tight and fine.

Many times the belt is tight but those particular belts have teeth and should you lose any teeth on the brushroller OR th ...

I have a Bissell Proheat 2x Model 9200. The solution goes directly through to the carpet. The tank empties extremely fast even when I am not pushing the button. I have also noticed that I have soap spots on the carpet when pushing the cleaner forward. These spots are not even associated with the cleaning mechanism. I have inspected the cap on the tank, but it seems to be OK. Any suggestions?

My Dyson DC 14 is making the horrible "ratcheting"sound only when the brush is engaged on the carpet setting. I have cleaned the brush, so there are no obstructions, the canister is empty and properly on the unit. I checked to make sure all of the "traps" and hoses are clear of obstructions, the belt is on the brush securely and moves freely, the brush itself spins freely, but there is still the "ratcheting" noise. Any other suggestions?

Our DC33 was making the same ratcheting sound immediately upon placing the cleaner/brush head on the carpet. We carefully pulled the beater/brush bar out of the vacuum. Once removed, we pulled the black plastic end off of the center rod. We discovere ... Dyson DC14 Animal Bagless Upright Cyclonic Vacuum

I have a Bissell Pro Heat 2X carpet cleaner and the brushes spin, then stop. I turn it off and when I re-start, the brushes do not spin until I push foreward. The it spins and stops again. Both belts are tight. The brushes spin if held above the carpet, but upon contact with carpet it stops. Same thing on a hard surface.

On our new carpet (which is not that thick but thicker than the old) I can't set the carpet thickness high enough. The suction really grabs the carpet and bogs down my self-propelled wind-tunnel Hoover. I then have to push down on the handle to tilt the front up. The thickness setting is as high as it will go. Is there some way that I can further adjust this. The machine is about eight years old.
