Having problems with your Hoover SteamVac Carpet/Upholstery Deep Cleaner Vacuum ?

On steam vac round brushes rotate until on carpet but pressure of carpet causes mechanism to slip so brushes do not turn. What is the fix please.

Answers :

Hi the problem you are having is with the drive belt, it has stretched and this is causing it to slip when under pressure, the only real option would be to get a replacement belt and get it fitted how ever i have heard of people wrapping strong tape around one end of the brush to build it up a bit so the belt is a bit tighter.
i cant say it is a good idea but it has worked for a couple of people i know.

the best option would be to get a replacement belt for your local hardware store and if you are unsure about fitting it ask them if they know anyone or take it to your nearest electrical repair shop and they should be able to fit it for you whilst you wait.

let me know how you get on or if you need further assistance ok

plz rate this solution as i have a whole page of unrated posts, 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

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.

Hoover Wind Tunnel 7500 Brush not Turning. I have replaced the Brush and the belt. The problem does not seem to be either to me. I believe might be a missing part. The place were the belt hooks on is a metal pole which never seems to grip the belt well. In fact it seems loose most of the time and slips on the brush, causing the belt to eventually burn up. Could there be a missing plastic or rubber piece meant to hold the belt taught  on the metal pole?
