Answers :

<p>If your power nozzle has a circuit breaker, then it could be bad. The eSERIES PN2E power nozzle has had many issues with the circuit breaker going bad. If the light on top the power nozzle comes on, then most likely your circuit breaker is the issue.</p>
<p>On the PN2E and PN2 Power Nozzles, it is not necessary to use the circuit breaker. If you circuit breaker goes bad, just wire the leads together and use <a rel='nofollow' href="http://www.rainvac.com/8mm-516-hole-cover-pnozzle">this hole cover</a> to complete the job. Use a 5/16 drill bit to allow the hole cover to fit.</p>
<p>The electric hose has a trigger that you turn the power nozzle on and off so there is no need to have a circuit breaker. If you get something caught in the brush roll, just release the trigger.</p>

Also turns easily until it engages the carpet. Self propel function works just fine.

My machine (Hoover Wind Tunnel - bagless) is only 1 yr. old. The agitator brush doesn't turn all the time. I know it's not supposed to turn when in the upright position. However, it only seems to work when I have the setting on high. When I stop, but have not put the machine in the upright position, it stops again and then slowly starts moving. Could the V-belt be worn out already? In the owner's manual it states that this belt is not normally replaced. The exact same thing happened with my old


Sounds like you should do two things:\015\0121- Remove and clean the beater brush of all debris as best you can.

The brush roller stops turning and I can smell the belt burning, then it will catch and start working normal. I looked under the plate to check the belts and they looked okay and no hang ups of string or anything. The only thing that seemed weird was that the smaller belt that actually attaches and turns the roller is a bit loose. The larger belt is tight but looks like its the one that is burning and causing the smell.


Better to replace both belts the smaller one is stretched out thats whyits slipping ,be sure to clean the old rubber off the motor shaft before replacing the belts.it will cause the new belts to run unevevly and go bad before their time ...

Hoover U5344-950 My Hoover vacuum is a nightmare! I have had nothing but problems with it since day 1. The powerhead stops working if you try to lower the handle to vacuum. I took it in to be serviced and was told it sat on the shelf for too long in the store and it warped the belt...so it was replaced. Got it home, it worked the first time I tried it, then went right back to no powerhead working and as a bonus it is giving off a nasty smell like it is going to blow up! It now gets really hot to

Not working  I hit the switch and there is no sound of a motor.  Nothing is happening.  It was working seconds earlier and suddenly it stopped.  The plug was in and I replugged it into the outlet.  Still, no power and no motor sound. Does this happen if the belt goes? Thank you, Jill


If it was just a broken belt you would still hear the motor running. most likely its in your cord or switch. check the main cord, connections to the switch, and also the motor supply cord that goes from the handle to the vacuum head. ... Oreck XL Ultra Bagged Upright Vacuum

We have a new hoover bagless that is a couple months old. The pet hair attachment stopped working.
