Having problems with your Hoover Vacuums ?

Brush not working when the handle is reclined

\015 My vacuum is just a few months old. The belt is good and the brush rotates when upright. As soon as I recline the handle, the brush does not spin anymore. The only way I can get it too vacuum is to extend the handle all the way to the floor, wrap the cord down the back, under the head so it is coming up at the front of the vacuum. I then have to pull on the cord and lift the head about an 1/8 of an inch off the floor to get the brush to spin.Cannot find anything wrong with it myself and do not want to send it out for repair...how hard can it be to fix a basic vacuum? It was a fantastic vacuum at first and really pulled the nap up and cleaned well...help!!!!\015

Sonds like you have a problem with the self propel switch in the handle. Since you didn't provide a specific model number, I can only give you generic information on what might be the problem.. Here is a link for a hoover upright model ( may or may not be yours) but it does show the switch in the handle that does sound like your problem... http://www.hoover.com/pdfs/manuals/U6634900.pdf If you can provide a specific model, perhaps I can provide specific details on the repair.. Good Luck !

Brush Roll belt stops turning durring vacuuming on WindTunnel self-propelled, v belt is a little loose with handle down. Tensioning roll is engaged OK, but fully at the end of its travel. Replaced belts flat and v, but still stops turning even on high carpet setting when vacuuming. Carpet setting and height adjustment appears to be working OK, roll is clean and turns easily when out. Also turns easily until it engages the carpet. Self propel function works just fine.

The brush wouldn't work when the selector switch was in carpet mode. Took the power head apart and removed the motor. Everything o.k. in the power head. Checked and found that the neutural wire had pulled out of the connector, the connector was never crimped at the factory. What a day! Took 2 hours and a large pizza to get it done. Neutral wire was in the hose just below the handle. Reconnected the wire and crimped it, put everything back together. It works!!!!

My Oreck XL was working fine, then when I vacuumed a shag rug is started smoking and smelled like something is burning. (I changed the bag, checked for clogs--none found, and roller brush is turning. It has a metal handle.) Now I am afraid to use it.
