Having problems with your Hoover U6437-900 / U6439-900 Windtunnel Bagged Upright Vacuum ?
Roller Belt Keeps Slipping Off
\015 I have a Hoover WindTunnel Bagless Canister Cleaner with Powered Nozzle. The belt that spins the Brush keeps slipping off. I've replaced the belt, knowing it may have stretched, and it keep slipping off. Upon further inspection, it appears a "tab" on the Brush Roll Cover that is supposed to prevent the belt from sliding off the spindle, has broken off. I can't find a replacement "Brush Roll Cover". Has anyone else experienced this problem or does anyone have a replacement part # or availability for the Brush Roll Cover?\015

Roller problem Roller keeps stopping. I've emptied the dustbin. removed the roller to see if it is clogged, but appears to be nothing impeding it.

Replacement parts... I've got a 3594 Bissell and the belt has come completely off.

I've got it running again by using a screw I filed all the threads off of, but it only works for 10 minutes at a time before breaking another belt. This process is getting expensive, as it usually takes 30 minutes to completely vacuum the house. Is ther
