Having problems with your Hoover Tempo Widepath Upright Vacuum - Blue ?

Agitator turns but the vacuum doesn't pick up that well

\015 The suction on our hose works great but the main part of the vacuum really does not pick things up well. We have to go over and over our floors several times before it picks some of the debris up. We have tried to do some troubleshooting on our own. We read the owners manual. No clogged lines, new bag, belt in great condition, rotates without hitting agitator, etc. We cannot possibly think of what else could make the vacuum have poor pick up power. Any suggestions before we "bag" the vacuum?\015

Answers :

Ok it sounds like the vacuum line that goes to your brush is clogged partially. need to remove soem screws and get to it from the underneath. or try blowing through the line with compressed air or blower side of a vacuum. its usaully the smal flat veins that clogg right before it goes up into the tube that you connect to.

My simplicity 7 series vacuum belt turns the agitator (beater brush) turns freely by hand when the vacuum is unplugged or off but when I turn the vacuum on the agitator does not spin even though the belt is moving. Could there be a worn out part at the agitator pin where it connects to the flywheel that the belt is connected to?

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. It also seems to not be picking up as well as it used to, although no blockages are present and the filter is clean.

For some reason, when I tried to put the floor vacuum attachment back on and vacuum the carpet, I realized that the belt was not engaging. the belt is in there and not broken, but it is not turning the beater brush. it is just hanging loose around the brush. When I turn the wheel to engage the brush, it picks the belt up, but when I attach the vacuum to the attachment, the brush is just not turning.

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.

Hoover WindTunnel S3765. The motor spins and the belt turns when I turn the brushes on, and the brushes will spin. The problem is that when I do this on carpet, the brushes stop spinning. As soon as I pull the "head" off the carpet, the brushes spin again. It's almost as if the vacuum suction is too great. I took the head apart and watched the motor turn the metal spindle that the belt rests on, and the belt turns as well.
