Powerhead no longer working

\015 The vacumm works great except today when i was vacuuming the main powerhead shut off and isnt working anymore. I turn the switch on but only the light comes on. The bristles underneath are not working. How can i fix this.? is there a belt or something that needs to be changed?\015

Answers :

If you can hear the power nozzle motor running, but the belt doesn't spin, it is most likely the belt. You will have to get the belt from an Aerus dealer or a Vac shop. If you want to put the belt on yourself, you can. There or five or six screws on the bottom of the power nozzle that need to be removed and the cover should come off. Once the cover is off, you will see the belt and how to change it. Good Luck!!

The problem has been getting worse. It works, then cuts off. Then works and cuts off. Making sure the canister is not full. Time b/w it working is getting longer and longer. Almost seems this time when I change the outlet it is plugged into it works. But then shuts off quicker than it was doing before. I'm getting very frustrated.

Hoover U5344-950 My Hoover vacuum is a nightmare! I have had nothing but problems with it since day 1. The powerhead stops working if you try to lower the handle to vacuum.

Got it home, it worked the first time I tried it, then went right back to no powerhead working and as a bonus it is giving off a nasty smell like it is going to blow up! It now gets really hot to
