Having problems with your Hoover Steam Vac Dual V w/ SpinScrub Vacuum ?

Hi my dual v spinvac's brushes stopped spinning. I cleaned it out, and made sure it was in properly...still not working. What can I do?


Answers :

When you take the part out containing the 5 brushes you need to check the the center which has a long protruding stud. It more than likely broke and will not slide all the up inside for a proper connection. You can find a replacement on Ebay which is a little cheaper, even with shipping than what sears or some other places will charge.
Remove the brushes and check the end bearings for free turning. Clean away all wound-up thread, string and hair that might block free turning. The belt may have stretched to the point that it wont drive the brushes or it may be slick from soap residue.

I have a Hoover Windtunnel Farrington upright model U6431-900 It has worked flawlessly until last week. The roller brush has stopped turning and I believe it is the belt that has broken but I am not sure how to remove the cover to inspect it and replace the belt if that is the problem. Please inform me how to perform the operation and what I should I look for? Is there a site with a diagram on how to replace said parts?

Can make it work by leveraging the handle down (or back towards me) to keep the cleaning head a little off of the carpet-any suggestions or ideas?


Would suggest the drive belt is stretched and thus is slipping when contact is made with the carpet. ... Hoover U6437-900 / U6439-900 Windtunnel Bagged Upright Vacuum

I have a DC07 and the brush wasn't rotating and I had no suction at the brush but perfect suction through the hose. I noticed a large build up of dog hair around the brush so I took off the cover plate and removed all the hair, cleaned inside the floor/brush housing and cleaned out the hose. I also cleaned the filter and removed the other air access cover and made sure that they were clear.
