Hoover windtunnel t series belt is loose- roller brush doesnt turn. Its brand new belt is slipping. we bough new belts and putthem on same problem. Can not find solutio in manual. Is the belt supposed to go around the "metal pulley". I know it goes around the little metal motor thing, then thru the guide and around the brush. What is the metal pulley??? Is is the larger round silver thing between the guide and roller?

I have a Eureka 4870GZ. It turns on, but the brush roller doesn't move. The belt looks fine. I do have an extra belt and would try replacing the old belt, but I can't get the old one off the motor shaft or the new one on. I called Eureka customer service. The lady said there's supposed to be a small space between the motor shaft and the outside edge of the vacuum where I can slip the old belt off and the new one on. I don't see it. It looks like the motor shaft goes into a recessed place in the

The vacuum is making a noise like something is stuck when it is in the carpet position but not when in the floor position. I can't find anything that is stuck in the areas that I can see. I have cleaned the brush but it does not seem to want to turn. Does this machine need to be oiled so the roller will turn? Is there a way to check inside the motor? Do you think that because the brush won't turn that is making the noise? Do you know of any repair shops in the Lake Havasu City, Arizona area?
As far as the roller brush goes, yes, it does need to be cleaned. Follow the directions to remove it and clean as best you can of all debris. On both ends of the roller brush there will be two "holders" of sort that connect the brush to the frame o ... Dyson DC07 Bagless Upright Cyclonic Vacuum
The roller has stopped rotating and I wanted to see if the belt needs changing. I cannot find out how to get to where the old belt is located.
Remove the bottom to find the belt. There is usually a spare in the compartment. I think there is 8 or 10 screws.\015\012\015\012Thanks for your interest in FixYa.com\015\012 ... Oreck XL21 Bagged Upright Vacuum
Eureka TRUE HEPA Whirlwind Bagless same problem seems...roller just stopped...took everything apart and turned it on just in time to see belt melt...I was able to get the end caps off both sides at first and now can't seem to get the one side. Really love this vacuum! Don't want to have to part with it!
If you are able to remove one end cap, the brush roller shaft can be removed and the other bearing is exposed for examination and removal of the hair that probably is clogging it. After cleaning and reassembly the brush roller should rotate freely. C ... Eureka 2961AVZ Bagless Upright Vacuum
Hoover Mach 6 U5198-900 vacuum roller brush won't turn. I had opened the bottom to clean hair off the roller. the belts are not broken. When I closed it and turned it on, now the roller brush won't turn. I can push and turn it by hand, but not easily. Then I noticed the brush on/off switch is turned off, but when I step on it, it won't turn on. I was thinking I let something get out of place when I opened the bottom, but can't see what.

Hi my proheat bissell 7901 stopped pumping water to the floor, but it pumps water from the hand hose. I read the manual and followed how to check belt and the flat belt on right side of shampooer is fine and I turned on and it turns and so do the brushes at the bottom of the machine. I was reading online and I guess there's two belts on this machine? where can I find the other belt to see if it needs replacing. I guess it's a ribbed belt? that is the water pump belt?
Just taken ours apart with the same problem... found it was caused by the 2 halves of the main casing coming apart in the area where the upright pedal release is. I found this to be due to the upper casing having broken in 2 places - the bottom of th ... Bissell 7901-1 ProHeat Scotchgard Upright Wet/Dry Vacuum
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
Hoover bagless cannister 3765 - belt on power head slips off spindle. bought new belts - same problem. is this a design problem or can it be fixed? I don't want to take it to a repair shop 100 miles away and have them just put on a new belt. saw idea of smaller belt - what number? couldn't find suggested royal 104425001 belt.
I would not recommend a smaller belt. You will only wear the motor. This model series power nozzle needs to have a metal clip installed near the belt on the brush roller housing. I know that most of them left the factory without it. Remove the cover ... Hoover S3765-040 WindTunnel Bagless Canister Vacuum
Roller problem Roller keeps stopping. I've emptied the dustbin. removed the roller to see if it is clogged, but appears to be nothing impeding it. It stops on a short napped rug, and even on the wood floor. Is the spool that the roller slips into driven by a belt? Can I get in there behind the spool?
I have 3 Prontos, one in each part of the house. Two of mine had the rollers stop. I figured out the problem and it fixed both. Take the roller out by turning the plastic screw and popping the plate off. Pull all debris off the wheel that turns. ... Electrolux EL1000A2 Pronto Bagless Stick Cyclonic Vacuum
My hoover upright u8172-900. The unit provides suction, but roller does not turn. I can hear the motor click on when it is supposed to. I took the cover off, and found no belt. Does this one operate without a belt, or is it possible the belt was totally obliterated? I saw no place to connect a belt, but I didn't want to do too much disassembly at this time.

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. The bearings on the rotating brush seem to be running smoothly when turned by hand both when out of the brush holder and when installed in the machine. I can't find anything rubbing on the belt or rotating brush. I applied a bit o

Belt squeels when the roller starts turning. only used about 10 times. Small belt under cover is very loose, but it shouldn't be worn out after only about 10 uses. does the small bell just rest on the belt control pin or is it supposed to be around it (thinking it could have slipped off)
Ours did the same thing in about 10-15 uses, the idler pully quits holding the v-belt tight and the the aggitator wont turn. ... Hoover U5194-900 Mach5 Multi-Chamber Cyclonic Vacuum Cleaner Bagless Vacuum

The roller brush at the bottom of the vacuum is not spinning, hence it isn't picking up the dirt. I am unable to find a way to access it so that I can see what is stopping it from turning. Can you help me?
Hello. uUsually when the roller brush stops spinning the belt is broken. TIp the machine upside down and look for several screws which hold the bottom together.

The brush roller stops turning and I can smell the belt burning, then it will catch and start working normal. I looked under the plate to check the belts and they looked okay and no hang ups of string or anything. The only thing that seemed weird was that the smaller belt that actually attaches and turns the roller is a bit loose. The larger belt is tight but looks like its the one that is burning and causing the smell.
Better to replace both belts the smaller one is stretched out thats whyits slipping ,be sure to clean the old rubber off the motor shaft before replacing the belts.it will cause the new belts to run unevevly and go bad before their time ...

Belt slipping Belt slips off and rubs causing burning smell from the belt over heating. Of course this puts an indent into the belt and has to be replaced. How do I keep the belt from slipping off? I see no place for a belt adjustment. Which I know would eliminate the problem. Really aggravating to have to replace belt only after two uses.

Belt keeps sliding over on the roller bar and rubbing on plastic parts. Belt is a "U" belt and I am told it should be a "R" belt. Sears sold me a "U" so I will try and find the R tomorrow. What keeps the belt other than tension from sliding onn the roller bar? Could it be that just the wrong belt could cause this??
