Having problems with your Hoover Tempo Widepath Upright Vacuum - Blue ?
Brush is not engaging when vacuuming. If lifted
\015 Brush is not engaging when vacuuming. If lifted slightly then will vacuum. The rollers underneath are collapsing and not holding the bottom up enough for the brush to engage. Part underneath that connects to rollers is not touching the carpet height regulator.\015
Therre are usually aprings that hold the brush in position or a spacer thaqt turns when you adjust the height. turn the vacuum over and remove the plate covering verything. make sure your unplugged first. it usually takes about 5-6 phillips head screws. look for loose ,broken or missing parts. make the the roller is taken out and is carefully cleaned of all hair etc esp that just at the edge of the roller where it meets the monting devices. the hair and debris often gets stuck there and once removed works much better. also make sure the belt is not stretched and is slipping on the brush. if it is replace it. good luck.carefully reassemle the parts you removed being very aware of what postiotn everything was in when you took it apart. make sure everything has proper clearance and then test your vacuum. if you find broken or missing parts replace them first ofcoarse.

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.

We have a Hoover upright vacuum cleaner, model Core 7. There is a switch that turns on and off the brush drive. This operates via a cam with a bearing putting pressure on the final drive belt to engage the brush head. My brush head is not turning and with the lever set to engage the drive there is still considerable slack in the final drive belt. There appears to be only a bearing deflecting the belt, should there be a pully or other device mounted on this bearing? There is so much slack a
Yes, there should have been a white plastic sprocket on top of the bearing - in its channel the belt would sit. Unfortunately no parts are available for this unit that can be bought retail - only available by order to dealer repair shops.\012\012\012 ... Hoover Vacuums

My Dyson DC 14 is making the horrible "ratcheting"sound only when the brush is engaged on the carpet setting. I have cleaned the brush, so there are no obstructions, the canister is empty and properly on the unit. I checked to make sure all of the "traps" and hoses are clear of obstructions, the belt is on the brush securely and moves freely, the brush itself spins freely, but there is still the "ratcheting" noise. Any other suggestions?
Our DC33 was making the same ratcheting sound immediately upon placing the cleaner/brush head on the carpet. We carefully pulled the beater/brush bar out of the vacuum. Once removed, we pulled the black plastic end off of the center rod. We discovere ... Dyson DC14 Animal Bagless Upright Cyclonic Vacuum
Brushes stopped The brushes stopped turning while using the cleaner. I removed the brushes to see if the spindle was broken, it wasn't. I then removed the top plastic cover and checked the switch that engages the brushes; it didn't seem to be moving correctly. There's one spring on the switch - should there be two? Or do you think something has broken on the inside? Thanks for any help

When I vacuum w/ the brush control in the on position it make a really loud noise, almost like a grinding sound. I have looked at it and nothing seems to be wrong, but I notice that the pin that engages the belt seems to vibrate a bit, possibly creating the noise. It started when I accidentally got part of a plastic grocery bag caught in the brush. Could it have stretched a belt? Nothing is caught any other place and it only makes the noise when the brush in in the on position.
Yes, the belt could have been stretched and is now vibrating and hitting other parts and creating a noise if much of the bag got caught under the belt. If you have another belt for this vacuum, please put it on and see if the noise stops. If it does ... Hoover U5780-900 Windtunnel Cyclonic Bagless UprightVacuum

I have a Bissell Lift-off Revolution Turbo vacuum and the brush doesn't spin on its own anymore. Does this mean the motor is busted because there's no noise when you press the brush button. We've just replaced the belt, hepa filter and a new brush. But its still the same. What's wrong with my vacuum?
Its probably the motor. remove the covers with a #2 phillips head screwdriver and cut the wires to the motor ( unplugged ). purchase some crimps at radio shack to resplice the wires together in the same fashion. ... Bissell Vacuums

Hi,My agitator brush won't run on my hoover S3590, I changed the belt, that didn't work. I don't see a possible cause in my book except replacing the belt.
