I think that machine needs to be in the reclined position for that brush to turn on. It its not that then, you probably just have a broken belt.

    Unfortunately I haven't seen this problem occur on this machine before.



    Make sure the machine isn't set on the Hard Surface setting, because the roller doesn't turn on that setting.



    The next thing to check would be the brush motor. Make sure it has voltage to it. If it doesn't, you have an electrical problem and if it does, you have a bad motor which is part# 92001237



    Let me know if any of this helps

    I had the same problem, I checked the motor by taking and running current through it and it ws working so i figured there must be a kill swith for when it is upright the brushes wont spin. Next to the wheel inside is a cyntech power choker ( it should be yellow/purple and brown wires together), this kills the power to the motor so if its not the motor its this. very simple to remove and replace.

Hoover Whole House Bagless Upright. Belt Changed but Brushes arent moving


Take off the bootom plate and remove the brush assembly. Inspect both ends for any hair, string or anything else that might prevent it from revolving. Check to see that the ends are lubricated with some grease, just a bit. It should take care of the problem. The ends should turn easily and smoothly.

Brush on vacuum stop spining (HOOVER U-5753-960) Thank You


A worn out carbon brushes of vacuum will cause that motor spinning stop. Because brush no longer capable of pushing a stator or rotor hence electromagnet windings motor will not meet each other.
Have a brush replacement be customize in a nearby machine shop or find brush replacement on hardware store.
Look also for the possibility of loose wiring of the vacuum, check it also.
Thanks for asking.

I cant get my hoover vaccum brush to spin


First be sure the switch/circuit breaker on top of the nozzle is on. The brush also will not turn unless the handle is released and tilted back. This model of Hoover has a gear drive to turn the brushes. This was VERY prone to problems, and Hoover discontinued making replacement parts for it several years ago.

My machine (Hoover Wind Tunnel - bagless) is only 1 yr. old. The agitator brush doesn't turn all the time. I know it's not supposed to turn when in the upright position. However, it only seems to work when...


Sounds like you should do two things: 1- Remove and clean the beater brush of all debris as best you can. At the end of the brush you will see a hard rubber piece, at both ends, that holds it in place in the body of the vacuum. Add some WD40 between the brush and these pieces and turn until they move freely. 2- When you reassemble, put a new belt on.
This should be all you need to do. If you find this information to be of help, I would appreciate a Thumbs Up from you. Be well, Paul
