My boss model 5892 brush will not roll

This unit has a reset button on the side of the hood. Recline handle, turn power switch on, pressing down in carpet mode, press reset buttonon the side of the hood, the brush should turn on.
If the belt isn't broken and the brush still doesn't spin, you may try putting a few turns of electrical tape around the area on the brush roll where the belt attaches-- it will increase the tension on the belt and get it spinning again. Worked in my case anyway.

Hoover Bagless Hello, My Hoover bag less (Model U5280-900) is not picking up dirt like it should. The brush roll is spinning fine, but the bristles on it are only about one quarter inch long. I am wondering how long they should be. The vacuum is quite a few years old. Do you think it is time to replace the brush roll. Could you email me at BOney@south-central.org about this topic. The product bar below did not contain my model no. The correct model no. is above in my message. Thanks

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. The upper handle would have to be ... Hoover U6437-900 / U6439-900 Windtunnel Bagged Upright Vacuum
No matter how many new belts we put in the brush will not rotate when it touches the floor. If you hold it straight up the brush rotates like crazy. Why is the brush not cleaning the floor. Yes, I have the right belt. It is R we have the boss. 12 amps. Model 4870
There is probably an accumulation of slippery stuff on the shaft that drives the belt. You can scrape it clean with a sharp knife or a razor blade. You might need to use some kind of solvent to get it clean, and if you do, be sure to follow up wit ... Eureka Vacuums

I'm using (or WAS using) a Eureka ''the boss'' model 8803. The belt broke, no biggie, so I replaced it with a Eureka model U belt, the problem is when I put the new belt on and turn on the vaccuum, the belt breaks again. I am also having trouble getting the brush roller to fit right when the belt is in place. I can't find any sharp edges that would cut the belt,nor can I find where any small bits may have broken. Anyone have a solution for me?
First, make sure you have the right belt, second, i am thinking that you are not lineing the roller up right, it will only fit one way. look at the ends of the roller and the grooves where it slides in, you should be able to see clearly how it goes. ... Vacuums

The brush roll on my Eureka Bagless The Boss 4 dimension cleaning vaccum itsn't working. How do I fix it?
Take either the plate over the brush roll off, if it doesn't come off, then the top cover comes off, should be 2 or 3 screws on the top to remove. Then you can get to the belt and brush roll. Check the brush roll, make sure the ends turn freely, if ... Eureka Vacuums
My 4870 K Boss is 2 years old. I have replaced belts & filters in the specified intervals. This last time I replaced the belt after a year, it shredded 3 of them on the outside edge of the belt in about 5 minutes of use. I ordered a new brush roller & heavy duty belt which I installed. It began shredding the belt in less than 5 minutes of use. What is your suggestion? Is this a known problem with this model? Eureka says no and is not standing behind it.
The only reason why it would be shredding the belt is if the pulleys were not lined up correctly. Check the allignement of the belt to make sure there is nothing kepping the pulleys from being in line. The other thing that it could be is if the rolle ... Vacuums
I have a Eureka Mega Boss Central Vac Model # CV1801P. The suction works when the handle button is pushed left (floor mode) but no suction happens when the button is pushed right. When the floor attachment is hooked up and the button is pushed right, the brush rotates, but there is no suction.

I have the Eureka 4870 "The Boss" Smart Vac. The beater bar began to turn constantly and can't be shut by moving the Brush Roll Contol to Bare Floor position or the machine to the upright postion. It has also eaten two new belts. A local tech says he has seen this problem whereby the free-wheel assembly that makes contact with the belt to engage the beater bar is misalgned and cannot disengage. It is usually the chassis which would mean replacement of enough parts that would not be worthwhile

The belt on my used Eureka Boss 5857 upright slips off the end of the motor shaft every time the vacuum is used. When I turn the brush roll slowly by hand, the belt walks toward the end of the shaft. It looks like there was a plastic projection from the base that snapped off, and maybe that plastic piece used to block the belt from falling off. Do I need to try to reconstruct that plastic piece, or is something else wrong?

Hoover windtunnel U6425-900 the brush roll is not turning. Both belts are in good shape, I cleaned the brush roll and it is free of debris, the setting is on carpet and the brush roll still will not turn.
