Hoover Elite motor runs when moving backwards but not forward

Hoover Elite motor runs when moving backwards but not forward
Seems to be related to the angle of the handle since once in awhile it will start to run going forward but always runs going backwards

    It used to always run the brush moving the sweeper forward or backwards just like most vacuum do.

    I have been an electronic tech my whole life. I feel it is an electrical problem but have not been able to find a schematic on the wiring.

    Does the vacuum actually shut off when you move it forward?

    Sounds like a wiring problem down or near the pivot point. How handy do you feel?

I have a Upright Hoover Elite. Can't get belt back on right.


The belt loops over the motor shaft and the brush roller. Verify that the arrows on the end caps of the brush roller are facing DOWN or you will be doing the job over again. Start with the motor shaft and stretch the belt to allow the brush roller to seat. A new belt can require a strong pull on the brush roller to get it seated.

Hoover Savvy Brush only runs when the vacuum is moved backwards


That is brobably a bad wiring, that lose contact when you move the hoover forward. The wirings should be checked, here is some schematic:

How to replace on-off switch


Modern vac motors are polarized and cannot be made to run backwards. Take it to your local vac repair shop and let a professional repair it for you.

Wont move forward or backwards


Generally the belt is probably stretched and needs replacing but I have had several that required modifying the height adjustment assembly. Belt should be a bit of a fight to stretch and get the brush block back in properly to maintain resistance. The higher carpet causes the belt to slip and can even cause burn/wear from the motor shaft spinning in one spot. Sometimes people run them and burn through and break the belt. Generally you smell rubber burning if belt is slipping and burning. The height adjustment modification was a last resort and not easy! Not for the average person! Another post tells how to modify but better be handy!

Not sucking


Oh! you have my sympathy... He He.....

HeHe.. I asume it is turned on and running. He He......

Is this in the upright, or if actually in use and pushing backwards and forwards. (Can't help laughing.Sorry)
still no "SUCTION". Serious, Turn on side with motor running, make sure brush is spinning, if OK, check the plastic tube is connected to the unit body near the bottom, it somtime comes adrift, could even be split...?

My deluxe elite rewind vacuum spits out dirt


The elite rewind does not have any fancy features. This sound like you have a blockage in the foot or base of the vac. remove the bottom cover to look under. Also check the hose, it can be in there as well.

Flair motor shorting out?


There's a thermal cut-off when the unit has overheated. Mine does this quite often and I remedy it by emptying the canister and making sure the filter is clean, especially of lint and things that prevent good air flow.
