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

My hoover upright u8172-900. The unit provides suction, but roller does not turn. I can hear the motor click on when it is supposed to. I took the cover off, and found no belt. Does this one operate without a belt, or is it possible the belt was totally obliterated? I saw no place to connect a belt, but I didn't want to do too much disassembly at this time.

Panasonic mc-e4113 Upright vacuum. The belt that drives the brush in front is broken I have found a spare for this but there seems to be a pulley missing on the main drive shaft that the belt needs to fit on. I can't believe that there wouldn't be one? Can anyone tell me if this is the case and if so where I can get one from. Many thanks Sean

Beater brushes not turning on the wife's Hoover Steam Vac model F5905-900. Found one prior ''solution'' stating that it sounded like the belt was bad. That was my original thought, but on checking schematics and trying to find part numbers at Sears Parts Direct and at Hoover, it does not appear the F5905-900 steam vac HAS any belts to begin with. What's next??

A friend who bought a multimaster less than a year ago has had his start a loud 'clattering', dry, noise, and the gearbox started to get hot. The output shaft now has about the same amount of slop as the total movement should be. It is one of the quick attach type. I bought one of the allen key attach type, and have found in the past with various 'name brand' tools, drills, angle grinders etc that they usually use a 'dry' type grease which soon throws off the necessary parts and they run dry u

Possible broken belt - where do I find access to the belt. The beater bar does not rotate when i release the handle. I like this machine, but It is only 2 years old, the warranty has expired.

I am replacing drive belt on Eureka 4870 upright. Before installing I removed bottomplate and was cleaning out accumulated lint, hair and grit. Found a pair of identical (reciprocal) felt gaskets sucurely inserted above and below the roller brush, and one small loose piece of felt approximately 1/3 inch wide by 1 inch long that came out as I was pulling out debris. It has a slight crease across the middle as though I was not resting on an entire flat surface, but I find no other clues as to wher
