Question about Hoover Soft Light Supreme U4262-930 Bagged Upright Vacuum
My name is Don.
This morning when I started to vacuum the motor started running super fast and the brush is spinning extra fast?
If I need a part where do I buy?
SOURCE: brushes won't spin
open unit's bottem cover and look for the following: - Motor works - Belt which transfer motor's movment to the brushes, in place and not broken (most frequent phenomenon). - No mess on brushes axis which prevent their free movement. Good luck

Funny, lots of Hoover steamvacs seem to have this exact problem. I just fixed mine today and it was a problem with the turbine that spins the brushes. It took me a while to get to the part without breaking the plastic housing. If you have the patience, you should have no problem figuring it out. When I got to the turbine part, I opened it up and found that the metal disc at the end of the shaft was rusted and that no grease was ever applied. I took a metal brush, cleaned it up, greased the wheel, and then closed it back up. After putting it back together, it worked great. It almost looks like they don't grease this part on purpose so that it rusts and fails in order for you to spend more (buy parts, extended warranty, etc.). There's tons of grease on one of the other wheels that doesn't even need it. The product works great other than this. I've had mine for about 1 and 1/2 years and this is the first problem I've had with it.

Dear Xana,I have had problems like yours before. More times then not the roller brush "belt" got damaged and needed to be replaced.
You should also check your roller brush and make sure it was not knocked out of alignment.
If neither of these solutions help,then it could be, your roller brush "Bearing Assembly"got damaged which would mean you need to either replace the "Bearing Assembly" if it is removable and if you can find that part.Or else you would need to replace the whole "Roller Brush".
You can normally tell if the "Bearing Assembly" is damaged by trying to turn the roller brush with your hands,if it takes a lot of force to make it turn,then theirs a good chance it was damaged!
These repairs are fairly easy to do, just read your Vacuum manual on replacing parts,also make sure you always have the vacuum unplugged while replacing parts or doing repairs.
I hope this info helps,EarlsOK

You can try thehooverstore.com, or call a repair shop and I am sure they can order for you. Doubt that you will find a (#56511A01)manual tho. The hose part #43434268 and will sell for around $15 to $20. Dusting brush #43414145 $8 to $10. Extentsion tube #38634678 about $5. Furniture nozzle #38614029 about $5. Crevice tool #38617024 about about $5. Hope this helps.
