Change the other belt as well even if it isnt broken, the v belt will look loose but it isnt there is a tension pulley that comes down on it when the handle is released. if that doenst do it the tension pulley itself could be broken. also check the rug floor knob if its over even a little bit it could stop the brush from turning.

Hi i have a hoover F5853 when the brushes in contact with the carpet they quit spinning but it is on and lift the front up they start spinning but as soon and i put it back down they quit please help


Belt around brush roller is worn, it spins freely when there is no pressure on it. But put it on the floor, the belt won't turn the brushes. I suggest taking unit to vac repair shop for new belt installation

Agitator brush won't rotate. belt is fine, replaced v belt but it is loose. thought the old one was stretched out but new one is the same size.


The brush spins around an "axel", try removing rotator & spray wd-40 with red straw into it. See if that works, but do NOT use on carpet until dry or you will get grease stains on carpet.

Agitator bar makes a rattling sound when engaged.


Unfortunately, you may need a new brush roll.

How do I replace the belt in my hoover empower


There's a plastic cover over the agitator. (the part that should spin, with tough bristles)
Unscrew it. Pull out the agitator. Put the new belt over the 'spinner' (the part that's connected to the motor) and the special pafrt of the agitator. Snap the agitator back into place, making sure it's secure on both sides.
Screw back on the plastic cover.
Wallah!

Need help with my Hoover Savvy U8172-900 -- agitator does not spin when on


You probably jammed the roller brush and the gears on the motor stripped the teeth out of the drive belt.  You have to take the bottom and the top covers off the lower unit to replace the belt.  There is a hidden screw that keeps you from taking off the top, thus creates work for authorized Hoover repair shops.  You'll find that screw under the round red label in the center of the top of the lower section.  Peel it up and there is the screw.
