hi in answer to your question regarding the belt driven roller/brush on bottom of vac ? the nswer is yes it still rotates when you are using the tools on connection to flex hose ie stair carpet or areas the vac will not enter one word of advice ! if you use the vac/tools to vac the car interior as i and others do ? then ensure that whilst vac is stood and the flex hose and tool are in use? suggest you stand the vac on a flat surface(not the tarmacdrive or any porouse surface) preferably a rubber mat? or board so the rollerbrush is not subject to damage or apt to pick up stone chips etc which will eventually damage the motor impellor hope this helps answer your question and understand the safety point i mentioned best wishes

Your roller brush is starting to fail. If you unscrew the ends, you will find a lot of hair wound around the stem. You probably have a warped plastic end the holds the bearing. This is my problem now.... I am looking for a new roller brush as I write this. I found one for $30. Good Luck.

Really loud noise.
Posted by Theresa626 on July 20, 2008
The belt inside my Hoover broke and so we replaced it. But when we did, it now makes an extremely loud noise when turned on. We think it’s the roller to the vacuum because it doesn't make a noise when the roller is not in there. The roller sounds like its hitting something. However, we have pushed and pulled and done everything and all seems to be right. Everything is clicked in and the belt is on correctly and we've followed the manual. How can I fix this problem?
I would advise you to ALWAYS to FIRST UNPLUG YOUR VACUUM before beginning any service procedure. It sounds to me that it is a bad brushroll and could need new bearings or a complete new brushroll depending on if id is metal word or plastic. Some brushrolls are rebuildable and some are not, you can check your owner’s manual to see if it is or is not; or it could be the start of a broken fan blade or bearing in the motor section. But that is the only thing that I can think of that might be wrong. Feel free to contact your local vacuum cleaner dealer in your area or you can also contact the Hoover website or cust serv phone # listed below. So if you need further assistance, please feel free to contact your local vacuum cleaner dealer in your area or in the yellow pages, or contact the factory phone number or website to further assist you with your questions.

The brush roller may be clogged with debris. If so, the belt will only slip until it burns through from friction.

hi helen.
that does not sound good.
you might have to open it up and have a look inside and see if anything has burned out.
or get some one to look at it for you.

Thermal fuse failed, motor brush gear stuck, switch failed, power cord...

You will need to dismantle it and check the circuit with a meter...
