Hoover windtunnel Not sure of model number- but brush roller clamps down on carpet being vacuumed and stops spinning regardless of which of the 3 height selections is selected. Can make it work by leveraging the handle down (or back towards me) to keep the cleaning head a little off of the carpet-any suggestions or ideas?
Would suggest the drive belt is stretched and thus is slipping when contact is made with the carpet. ... Hoover U6437-900 / U6439-900 Windtunnel Bagged Upright Vacuum
I have a Hoover SteamVac F5914-900 SpinScrub... The last time I used the hand tool attachment, it worked fine. Just tried to use it again, and now I only drips of water will come out of the hand sprayer, if that. I have tried prepping it for up to 15 seconds like the manual says... no luck with that. Also it is making a big puddle on the floor, probably because the brushes on the main unit keep spinning when I am trying to use the hand tool which I dont think they are supposed to do? Can a
The brushes can be turned off on most of them via a switch on the hood. There shouldn't be water coming out onto the floor unless you are pulling the trigger at that top. You probably broke this when attempting to use the tools. ... Hoover SteamVac F5914-900 SpinScrub Upright Vacuum
Roomba Discovery Roomba is fully charged and cleaned with sensor wiped clean. When turned on it it sounds normal and commences to go, but it then acts like it is putting on the breaks, spins, tries to go and manages a short distance and breaks again, just not making any progress because it keeps breaking after a foot or so and turns and tries again. Sometimes is gets so stuck from moving forward at all, like it is stuck in one spot just trying to go while seemingly surrounded by barriers. Somet
I had the same back-up, turn, move forward a couple inches, backup-up, etc. problem. Try cleaning/cutting the hair, etc. out from around the brushes, as well as around the ends of the brushes. Also, try a Q-tip to clean out the four pair of sensors ... Roomba Robotic Floor Bagless Vacuum

Have Hoover F7452900 spin vac carpet shampooer and brushes won't spin. The screen by the brushes is clean and they are place in position to clean on carpet.

My brush roller stopped spinning so I had to take it off and clean out all the hair that had gotten wound around it. I replaces it and now it is make a lound noise, but only when the brush is on. Could it be the belt making such a loud sound? It wasn't making this noise before.
Could very well be the belt.\015\012When cleaning the brush it is a good idea to add some WD40 at the ends where the plastic pieces are that hold the brush in the vacuum. The brush needs to be able to move freely around the plastic pieces.\015\012Ad ... Bissell Upright Vacuum - The Pet Hair Eraser 1 ea Vacuum
My dyson d14 animal keeps cutting in and out. When it's on, the hole above where the filter is, keeps making a loud suction noise and it won't clean up hair and dirt.
Vacuum Cleaners require AIr-Flow. Your machine is not getting any air-flow. The noise you hear is a valve opening up to prevent your machine from overheating and burning out the motor. You probably have an obstruction somewhere in the machine. ... Dyson DC14 Animal Bagless Upright Cyclonic Vacuum

The flexible brush on my unit does not spin. It did 'by accident' pick up a cat poo that didnt make the litter tray while I was out, (and it happily spread it all over the house and skirting boards). I cleaned the unit, removed the base and wiped everything clean. I've unscrewed the flexible brush and cleaned underneath it but it still wont spin. Any suggestions?

My Dyson DC 14 is making the horrible "ratcheting"sound only when the brush is engaged on the carpet setting. I have cleaned the brush, so there are no obstructions, the canister is empty and properly on the unit. I checked to make sure all of the "traps" and hoses are clear of obstructions, the belt is on the brush securely and moves freely, the brush itself spins freely, but there is still the "ratcheting" noise. Any other suggestions?
Our DC33 was making the same ratcheting sound immediately upon placing the cleaner/brush head on the carpet. We carefully pulled the beater/brush bar out of the vacuum. Once removed, we pulled the black plastic end off of the center rod. We discovere ... Dyson DC14 Animal Bagless Upright Cyclonic Vacuum
The rotary brushes on my Windtunnel V2 won't spin. I wasn't having any problems just, boom, no more spinning. I've had to clean hair and other stuff from them in the past. At that time, they wanted to move and couldn't. Now, I turn the machine on, and they don't move but make a loud noise. What do I need to do?

5 yr. old Miele s514 Turbo plus's power nozzle brush seems to disengage temporarily, stopping the spin. Then it seems to re-seat itself after a few seconds, then starts spinning OK. I keep the nozzle brush very clean, so there is no hair or yucky stuff to cause it to jam. Please help.

Roller brush stops spinning and vacuum makes noise. Brush will spin normally ok, until you use it on the rug.
That means that the belt is stretched and can't turn the brush against the resistance of the carpet. Here is a link for the\015\012instructions on how to change the belt and a link for the belt you need: ... Dyson DC07 Bagless Upright Cyclonic Vacuum

Poor suction The actual sweeper seems to work ok, but the hose attachment has some suction but not enough to pick up things I think it should and not enough to make the power brush spin. I've checked everywhere I can for clogs, but I can't see anything. And there doesn't seem to be any way to check to hose itself for clogs. I've cleaned out the container and the filters, but there's still a problem.
Check the inlet down by the brush roll, make sure it is open, if it is then the hose itself must have a clog. If the hose comes off, drop something like a marble in one end and see it it comes out the other end, if it doesn't then you have a clog. ...

My iRobot Roomba 560 starts spinning sporadically during the cleaning, and after over 3 minutes it complete stops and beeps 9 times. It is necessary to turn it on until it decides to work properly, and keep waiting for the next time the same failure will occur. I tried to reset it, and I have all the dust removed including from the bumper and sensors.
It's the bumper. Blow it out with compressed air and clean the cliff sensors. If you still get the 9-beep error, call support. ... iRobot Roomba 560 Robotic Vacuum
