20 Most Recent Hoover U5491-900 Bagged Upright Vacuum Questions & Answers


Can you please be a bit more specific in describing what help you need. You smell something burning and it was not the belt, is that correct?
Is the odor coming from the motor? If it is, then your motor needs repair. If not from the motor, please reply back and we'll see what we can do.

The reason the brush is not spinning is because the belt is stretched or broken. You can get a replacement belt here:

The reason why it is not picking up well is because the belt is worn or stretched and it can't turn the brush (which picks up debris) against the resistance of the carpet. Here is the belt you need:

sounds like something has got caught in the wheels/roller. Turn unit off, flip it upside down so you can see the bottom of the device and see if you can move wheels forward and backward...if you see something caught on the wheels, try and unroll it in the opposite direction. If the roller is jammed up, you may need to take the 4 screws holding the roller plate and then untangle/clean the roller and re-assemble.

Can you be a bit more specific as Shark & Hoover are 2 different vacuum manufacturers. Shark is part of Ninja products and Hoover is a brand on its own! What small car bits are you referring to. As my best knowledge the only car detailing pieces that will work with either of those 2 vacuums are the ones they make and sell if they do. Some brands may not offer the detailing car kit! When I bought my Shark I got the pet care package and the car detailing kit! Those are some quite small pieces!
