Having problems with your Hoover U8171-900 / U8172-900 / U8173-900 / U8174-900 Savvy Bagless Upright Vacuum ?

Need help with my Hoover Savvy U8172-900 -- agitator does not spin when on

\015 How do you get to the other end of the belt from the agitator? The belt seems fine and not too stretched, but the agitator does not spin when we have the vacuum on. Please help. I went to hoover.com and there wasn't any diagram of how to get to that area of the vacuum.\015

Answers :

You probably jammed the roller brush and the gears on the motor stripped the teeth out of the drive belt.  You have to take the bottom and the top covers off the lower unit to replace the belt.  There is a hidden screw that keeps you from taking off the top, thus creates work for authorized Hoover repair shops.  You'll find that screw under the round red label in the center of the top of the lower section.  Peel it up and there is the screw.
You do know when you lift the vacuum up the agitator will stop. I Lean it on it's side with the foot pedal pressed down and see if it's turning. There is a safety feature on the vacuum that shuts the agitator off when you lift the vacuum up.

Help hi there. i have a hoover savvy u8172-900 vaccum. the hose has great suction, but there is limited suction on the main unit and the brush does not spin when i try to use the product. we have cleared the brush of any debris and have also installed a new bag. a few days ago, we disconnected the hose to make sure there was not any foreign bodies stuck in the unit...nothing seems to help. any advise?

I replaced the agitator bar drive belt on a Hoover Model U6432-900 upright vacuum cleaner, but it just slips when the drive wheel is spinning. Is there an adjustment I need to make? I don't see any adjustment spots.


You probably should have replaced the flat belt(38528035) also. But the drive belt has a idler wheel(#13) to engage it, is it riding on the belt, if not if may have jammed to one side and able to spring up against the V belt. It could have broke al ... Vacuums
