Answers :

Your belt is stretched. The drag from the hard floor is not enough to stop it, but the carpet is. Change the belt, and all should be well.

My Vaccuum Hoover U5763-900 wind tunnel Twin Chamber is barely used. Belt is in tact and agitator is not worn. Nothing clogged. Agitator spins fine off the ground or on hard surface or flat rug. Once on carpet, the agitator won't spin. Not sure why. I have taken it apart over and over again.

Hoover Windtunnel U5750-900 Agitator brush is weak. It turns fine if I tilt the vacuum back, but it slows to almost 1/4 speed when it touches carpet, even on the highest carpet setting. I've replaced the agitator belt twice. The brush used to turn powerfully even on the lowest (Hard Floor) setting. Ideas? I should probably lube the agitator brush ball bearings, and re-check the belt, but, other than that, I'm stumped.

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 Bissell Pro Heat 2X carpet cleaner and the brushes spin, then stop. I turn it off and when I re-start, the brushes do not spin until I push foreward. The it spins and stops again.

Please help! my cleaner will roll on a flat surface but when I try to roll on the carpet it is jumpy like. I checked the setting and it is in the right place.


It could be that the belt or belts are worn and when you put the brush against the resistance of the carpet the belt slips and causes it to be jumpy.

My Kenmore canister model (116) 26212601 works in hard-surface mode (basic suction), but the brush won't spin for carpets, and when I try to turn it on, it makes a whiny sound and then turns off as it does when I need to press the overload button. I looked inside a bit, and the belt isn't broken--it seems fine. So not sure what the problem is. Thanks for any help.

My dyson animal is hard to push on carpet - the beater bar is still operational. When I turn off the beater bar and run the vacuum on hardwood the beater bar stops moving, but it still ''rolls'' on the hardwood - it doesn't pull up like it used to.

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.

Also turns easily until it engages the carpet. Self propel function works just fine.

I have a Dyson all-floor model (not the ball). I recently replaced my carpet to a Frieze. Since replacing the carpet, the Dyson is extremely hard to push. It almost forms a "seal" with the carpet. Seems to work fine on Berber carpet and laminate floor. My husband has checked to make sure the brushes are working, hoses are not clogged and belts are OK. I've had it for about a year. It is virutally impossible to push on the new carpet. Any ideas?
