Brush won't turn

My Hoover belt looks fine but is slipping. The rollers turn when on its side but stop as soon as I go to use the vacuum.

The belt may look ok, but if it is more then a few months old, then it has stretched to where it won't turn under load, just slips. If it is very tight feeling, then check down where the pulleys are, the V belt has a black roll that maybe jammed and not pushing against the V belt when the handle is in the down position.

I'm getting no suction and the brushes are not rotating

Hello! If you are using the cleaner on carpet, it is necessary for the brushes to rotate to assist the motor with maximum pick up. If your brushes are not spinning check the belt to make sure it isn't broken or stretched. The belt will need replacing about once a year. Below are steps for checking the belt on your U5399-900.

1. Place handle in low position and turn cleaner over so bottom side is up.
2. Remove the 4 screws. Lift off bottom plate.
3. Inspect the belt for rips and tears. If it is damaged in any way, broken or stretched replace the belt

This unit takes belt 38528033. Be sure you replace belt with genuine Hoover parts. Here is a link where you may go to order a replacement belt.

Replace belt on hoover vacuum U4655

Turn the machine over and remove the 4 screws which hold the cover on the brush. Remove the cover and brush roller. Remove old belt. Slide new belt over the motor pulley, first. Then slide roller through new belt (if self propelled model, slide roller through the small belt, also) and slide brush roller into slots on housing (note: slots are different, match roller sides to correct slot.)

If its 2 months old I wouldnt stress looking at anything. Box it up and take it back. Something that flimsy doesnt make sense to keep does it?

The roller brush will not turn. The belt is not


Sometimes the belt can stretch cause the roller to not turn. Also make sure the roller brush is free of any debris.

Use this link to access your vacuum to change belt or clean the roller brush.

Hope this helps.

The belt on my hoover cordless is not spinning when I turn it on

You need to replace the belt. Even though the belt may look fine it can be stretched and therefore it won' t turn the roller brush against the resistance of the carpet. You can get Hoover replacement belts here:

The belt on my hoover will not stay on. It falls

Okay. I would suggest that you have a problem with your roller brush. If the roller becomes clogged with hair/debris, the bearings will sieze, and sometimes even melt the plastic. the roller then has a difficult time turning and will break the belt. If the belt is slipping off, I would suggest that you either have a worn belt, the wrong belt, Or, your "windtunnel" (the half cylindrical insert the roller sets in) is missing. this insert has a "belt guide" that keeps your belt aligned. hope this helps!!!

Brush stops

This really sounds like a belt problem. Even if it looks OK, it may have stretched. New belts are cheap, and you'll need a new one eventually - if the old one turns out to be fine, you can always keep it as a spare. A second possibility is this: Many cleaners have a control which allows you to switch off the brush/beater bar so you can clean wooden floors without damaging them (for instance, mine has a pedal-operated bar which shunts the belt between two adjacent pulleys on the brush roller, one of which is properly keyed on, and the other of which is a loose fit allowing the roller to idle. If you have something like this on your cleaner, check you have the brushes switched on, and that the mechanism is working properly. A.
