New Belt, but can't reinstall brush correctly

\015 I replaced the belt for the brush, but I cannot get the brush back in a position where it can even spin. The white end of the brush has a circle slot that slides right in, but the black end is like a rectangle and I don't understand how this can possibly allow the brush to spin. Any tips on putting the brush back in so it can function properly?\015

Answers :

The rectangular and round ends are not intended to turn ..they stay fixed.. the bearing is inside the brush next to the round and rectangular ends .. if the ends dont move freely then there may be hair or string wound around the bearings .. clean that out so that things turn freely (the end may even come off) ... once you have things free and clean .. then putting the brush back in place does take some strength .. the belt gets very tight and its difficult but possible to get the rectangle inserted in its slot ..

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.

I have a Hoover Windtunnel U 6439-900. The agitator brush will not turn. I installed 2 new belts, # 38528034, and # 38528-035 There is so much slack in belt # 3852034 (brush drive) that it cannot grip the brush. There does not seem to be any adjustment to take up the slack. I've put in new belts twice now & cannot get brush to rotate or tighten the belt to the brush.

We have a new hoover bagless that is a couple months old. The pet hair attachment stopped working. I disassembled it found lots of hair wound around the various rollers and removed - painstakingly thorough i might add.

My girlfriend has a Hoover upright vacuum, Mdl. # U4645-930. I need a belt for the brush and a new bulb and am having trouble finding the correct part numbers so I can pick one up locally. Can you help?

I checked with Hoover and they said the part number for the belt is #38528040, for the bulb #27313101, and they also included a part number for something called an agitator #48414081. Not sure if this is required to replace one of the other parts. ... Hoover Windtunnel Turbo Power U4645-930 Vacuum

Noise My Dyson DC08 is making a loud, rough, vibration/noise that seems to be coming from the from the rotating brush housing. I replaced the old belt which was several years old and slipping. When I run the motor with the new belt removed the machine sounds normal.

In my (almost new) Dyson DC31 Animal the rolling brush tends to stop like the bearing was kind of difficult to turn. I opened the side carter and removed the little belt. Without the belt the engine runs regularly. I cleaned the little knots of hairs trapped in the bearing but still the brush runs for a while then stops, tries for a bit then stops again. I even tryed putting a bit of synthetic lubricant with apparently no result. Could it be a defective bearing? Thanks for your help.
