Having problems with your Hoover U6437-900 / U6439-900 Windtunnel Bagged Upright Vacuum ?
Beater Bar The "Beater Bar" or roller with brushes on it, is not spinning, therefore not picking up. I cannot locate my manual and need to know if it is belt driven and how to get at the belt to identify the size and purchase and install a new belt. Thank you for any assistance.
Take off the bottom plate, then you can get to the brush roll and belt, on the model number plate, the number of the belt is on that, it is also on the belt if you can still make it out.

I have the eureka boss 4495 widetrack and the end piece of the beater bar broke off. I guess I put it back together wrong when I put a new belt on. Where can I get a replacement part and will it work do you think.
Call the Eureka people (1-800-282-2886) and describe to them what the beater bar thingy that you broke is. Ask them if you can order that unit--if you think you can install it. Otherwise, ask them where to the authorized repair person closest to yo ... Eureka 4495A Bagless Upright Vacuum
I have 2 Hoover Wind Tunnel-self propelled bagged vacuums-U6433-900 model.The roller bar does not agitate, the self propelled feature does not work and, in general, the vacuum is not performing well. I have replaced the roller bar, the v belt and the wide belt. The filters have been replaced and it has a new bag.

I have the Eureka 4870 "The Boss" Smart Vac. The beater bar began to turn constantly and can't be shut by moving the Brush Roll Contol to Bare Floor position or the machine to the upright postion. It has also eaten two new belts. A local tech says he has seen this problem whereby the free-wheel assembly that makes contact with the belt to engage the beater bar is misalgned and cannot disengage. It is usually the chassis which would mean replacement of enough parts that would not be worthwhile

Windtunnel first one used 6 times beater bar stopped working, took apart cleaned and belt was fine. this one had a reset switch for beater bar. had insurance at best buy so returned for a new one. used 2x beater bar not working and not dirty, no reset switch on this one., now back to the store for another? i don't even want the same one. I wonder how many they are gonna give me. This seems to be a common occurance.

I have a Bissell 3920 and the beater bar only turns when I'm pulling the vacuum.How do you get the end caps off of the beater bar to clean it out? This has happened before when it was under warranty and I was told to remove caps and clean frequently.I am afraid prying them off will break the vacuum.It also has very low suction and I have cleaned the filters and the belt is fine.Will cleaning the inside of the beater bar fix my problem?

The beater bar on my Dyson won't turn. The vacuum runs and suctions but the bar won't turn and the belt is not broke. The beater bar did get a carpet fiber caught and wrapped around it which stopped the bar and I removed the bar to cut the fiber loose and replaced it and now it won't turn

My older Dyson DC14 (the purple one) early model with a clutch on the beater bar belt needs a clutch replacement. The bar has been cleaned and there are no worn or damaged parts so I conclude that the clutch at the motor end of the belt needs to be replaced. I can find the part online but no instructions on how to disassemble the vacuum to get to and replace it. Dysons only advice is to give me the address and phone of the nearest service center. Can you help me?

Replaces the belt on dirt devil dynamite pluse model put everything back together started it and it burt the new belt up that fast. I put it around the beater brush and the metal bar I thought it should go around, yet it seemed like there should be something else there to put the belt on. What do you suggest? Do you have picture I could go by?
The metal bar you put it around if the bar itself does not spin it is going to burn the belt up. Every thing that the belt is supposed to go around has to turn or the belt will rub on the piece not moving and brake. ... Vacuums
Bought a new sweeper and brush ( beater bar ) does not turn. The large belt is fine and turns. The small thin belt is also fine but does not turn the brush. It is either the wrong belt or is there something that could be missing to put tension on it ?? Thank You [email protected]

The roller turns strong and the belt is new,but the dirt accu-mulates and doesnt get sucked up! there no observable clogs and the filter side vent blows strong.......ive removed beater,belt and am assuming there may be a problem inside the motor housing as all else appears normal..i was an aviation mech in the military and the above is my assessment........

Motor is sparking and smells like burning rubber. When it first happened I thought the vacuum had something jamming the beater bar. That was the smell it had, like when the belt gets burned. But when we turned it over, it wasn't jamming. Took off the base plate and turned it on. The motor area is sparking and it makes a weird noise (I assume that is because the motor fails and restarts). I looked for loose wires, can't find any. I believe I need some sort of part replaced, maybe even a n

Chatter We have a Kirby Ultimate G. Since we purchased it it bounces across the floor and the level of the sweeper has nothing to do with it. To get it to stop, it has to be at the highest level. The place we bought it, has done nothing to help us. We tried a new beater brush, no help. If I have to use it at it's highest level to sweep my carpet, I might as well not waste my time.
