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

My Hoover upright model 6437-900 makes a distressed sound when I turn it on and it also burns rubber. The roller turns. I've checked the thick black belt and it's intact, but has lots of 'pitting'. HELP!!
It certainly sounds as though the belt needs replacement. (Part # 38528035) If the belt has stretched, it will slip, causing a burning rubber odor. Get a new belt and compare it to the used one. ... Hoover U6437-900 / U6439-900 Windtunnel Bagged Upright Vacuum

I have a Kenmore vacuum cleaner model #116.34720. The problem I am having is that if you are rolling the vacuum around, the base will drop without pressing on the handle release pedal. This often results in a bunch of dirt being dumped back out. The manual doesn't show anything about adjusting the handle release pedal so it holds the handle and base in an upright position better. Any help is greatly appreciated! Thanks in advance!
I have a Hoover pet cyclonic upright model uh70085. the brush won't spin, I thought maybe the small belt was stretched, I ordered the correct replacement belt and replaced it, I still have slack and the brush won't turn. the floor and brush adjustment seems to be working correctly. Thanks, Tom

How is the V-belt tension adjusted (Hoover Model U6439-900)or how do I know if the tension is correct? There seems to be a lot of "play" in the belt and I'm wondering if that is the reason the brush roll only turns as the wheels turn, regardless of the carpet height setting. And yes, the brush roll is set for carpet, not hard floor. Or is the cause of the problem something other than the V-belt? A new flat belt was installed when the machine was professionally serviced so I assume (?) that was a
The V-Belt is not adjustable. There are two ways the belt has no tension: (1) when the handle is upright, a mechanical lever takes the drive tension off the belt, and (2) the brush roll lever setting you described.

On our new carpet (which is not that thick but thicker than the old) I can't set the carpet thickness high enough. The suction really grabs the carpet and bogs down my self-propelled wind-tunnel Hoover. I then have to push down on the handle to tilt the front up. The thickness setting is as high as it will go. Is there some way that I can further adjust this. The machine is about eight years old.
I can help you out only if you will let me know the front width of the machine. Alongwith the height which you wan't to give raise. KIndly give the width and elevation in cms. ... Hoover Self-Propelled WindTunnel Bagless Upright VacuumVacuum
Electrolux Genesis 1572F: 1) One of the two spring/clips/whatever that hold the upright upright for storage has busted. What is the part called? Where might I find a spare? Or should I go to a machine shop? 2) The power cord retainer thingy on the back of the handle grip has broken; any idea about part#, name of part, where to look?

Vaccuum issue I just bought a Eureka upright model 5892 BVZ, my concern is, I bought it on sale (floor model) and it didn't have a manual with it. I took it home and tried it, and although it appears to be working very well there is not dirt in the catch bin on the front of the unit. I tried the hose w/attachment and again it worked very well in picking up the cat hair, but where does the hair and the dirt go, I am afraid it is spitting it back out somewhere since I can not see anything in the c

I have a new Euro-Pro shark model S3101. Used it one time and while I was doing my tile floor in my kitchen I reached under a cabnet to clean and hit the floor kick kind of hard and broke the head off of the shark. I have only the T shaped end on the shark now with the cleaning head broken off and looks unrepairable. I did kind of hit the floor kick hard but the plastic broke like glass. Can I put a new head on the remaining piece or is it repairable? thanks Angie

Oreck Upright Hi Redev, I'm not sure what model I have (about 6 years old...upright, looks like the one in the picture). I changed the belt (which was torn) and then the next time I used it, it cut off on me. Now if won't turn on at all. (I turn the switch on and off and nothing happens as if it is not plugged in but it is!). I noticed at the top where the power cord enters the handle, it is all frayed. Could the electrical wires have detached? Anything you think I should check before taking it
The cord could be bad and will ahve to be replaced. It would have to have a problem inside the handle or down by the motor. ... Oreck XL2600 Vacuum
I have a Hoover WindTunnel Bagless Vacuum Cleaner, Model #U5753-900, Serial number 110600215585, which I purchased from Loew's on 3/31/07. With it, came a Hoove Slider for hard floor surfaces, Model #S2105, Serial number 050500084989. The Slider strted making a noise--I thought something had been caught in the roller, but discovered, it had not; so I and my husband proceeded to take the Slider apart. I believe one of the belts had come off; but when we took the screws off the bottom to check
