How is the V-belt tension adjusted (Hoover Model U6439-900)or how do I know if the tension is correct? There seems to be a lot of "play" in the belt and I'm wondering if that is the reason the brush roll only turns as the wheels turn, regardless of the carpet height setting. And yes, the brush roll is set for carpet, not hard floor. Or is the cause of the problem something other than the V-belt? A new flat belt was installed when the machine was professionally serviced so I assume (?) that was a


The V-Belt is not adjustable. There are two ways the belt has no tension: (1) when the handle is upright, a mechanical lever takes the drive tension off the belt, and (2) the brush roll lever setting you described.

Dc07 problem I have a dc07 cyclonic vaccum and like this model,however, for some reason,it has been very dificult to push and pull for the past month or so. i have completely cleaned the brush assembly,cleared any obstructions in the hoses,and, cleaned the filter.I also checked the belt tension,wich i thought was fine but to no avail.Be advised that the brush assembly is spinning and suction is excellent. It just feels like the brush drags along the carpeting. this is a great vacuum cleaner and

My Hoover Windtunnel Mach 6.9 brush roller quit working. Upon investigating I found that the idler arm pulley was broken so I managed to replace that. Before putting the cover back on I see the control knob for the roller brush moves a plastic piece left or right to activate/deactivate the brush roller. I don't know where this plastic piece connects. It appears to me that the idler are when raised creates tension on the belt which drives the roller. I'm at a loss trying to figure ou

I have an old Riccar N2000 (biege) the belt connects to a little ''tension'' piece or ''guide'', not to the brush directly as in newer models. When moving-- this piece is somehow no longer there? Where can I get another one? Went to shop in town, they want $60 + labor to put the ''newer'' one piece brush thing in.....

Bought a new sweeper and brush ( beater bar ) does not turn. The large belt is fine and turns. The small thin belt is also fine but does not turn the brush. It is either the wrong belt or is there something that could be missing to put tension on it ?? Thank You [email protected]

I have a Miele S1721 Powerhouse upright vacuum. When the belt broke I took it into the shop (because when i tried to replace the belt, the tension was so tight I couldn't get it back together!!). When I got it home I DISCOVERED THAT THE HEIGHT ADJUSTMENT DIDN'T WORK anymore. It seems like it's set really hight, because it no longer contacts and brushes the carpet. So it's now useless. I went back to the shop and the tech denied that there was anything wrong. (I didn't have the vac with me). No

Put on a new beater brush belt that I bought from Sears as detailed on the plate on the vacuum. It immediately snapped. Is there a diagram for the routing for the belt (there is a drive spindle and a tensioner)? Thanks.


I would first check to see if the beater brush is turning freely. You should be able to turn it by hand. If you can not, remove it from the vacuum and clean any debris on the brush and especially on the ends that hold it in place.\015\012Some WD40 ... Kenmore Whispertone 29512 Vacuum

Brush Roll belt stops turning durring vacuuming on WindTunnel self-propelled, v belt is a little loose with handle down. Tensioning roll is engaged OK, but fully at the end of its travel. Replaced belts flat and v, but still stops turning even on high carpet setting when vacuuming. Carpet setting and height adjustment appears to be working OK, roll is clean and turns easily when out. Also turns easily until it engages the carpet. Self propel function works just fine.
