Very likely it's the cord at the nozzle neck. These cords flex when you vacuum and they often break internally where the cord goes into the neck. Turn the vacuum on and wiggle the cord at the powerhead and see if the powerhead comes on and off. If this happens, then you will have to replace the cord.
On some of the early models, the receptacle in the hose, where it plugs into the top of the wands, will break away from the plastic pins it sits in, and the receptacle will slide back into the handle, which means that it will not plug into the powerhead connection when you connect the hose. You can check this by looking at the end of the hose and observing if the receptacle is sitting flush with the opening it sits in. If it is pushed back, it will not make a complete connection with the powerhead cord that is sitting at the top of the wands.

real simple you have to articulate the belt a little sideways and the belt should slide right between the pulley and the plastic.

Hope this helps.

If the belt is getting hot, then it is slipping instead of turning the brush roll. Check thge brush roll, make sure the ends are turning freely. Is the motor running ok? If it is then either the brush roll is bad, need a new belt, or something is catching the belt, not letting it move.

I need help installing the beater bar belt

Hello,
I would advise you to ALWAYS to FIRST UNPLUG YOUR VACUUM before beginning any service procedure. Hoover U6437-900 / U6439-900 WindTunnel. All you need to do id to remove the bottom plate by removing either the screws, clips or levers and the bottom plate should come right off, and then you can get @ the belt – if not then the top cover will come off and then you can serv it from the top if needed. Then you can lift up the one end of the Hoover brushroll and then slide the new belt on to the pulley side of the brushroll and then use a belt puller or a screwdriver with a hook on the end and then pull the belt onto the motor pulley. Then track the belt in a straight line. So if you need further assistance, please feel free to contact your local vacuum cleaner dealer in your area or in the yellow pages, or contact the factory phone number or website to further assist you with your questions.

Kenmore canister power head not working?


Without more info, I would investigate the drive belt, make sure the beater bar is free to spin (no hair or carpet fibers twisted onto the moving parts), and then check that the power is getting to the motor of the power head. Most often it is hair/fibers that collect around the ends of the beater bar. This causes the belt to stall, heat up and stretch due to the drive motor shaft spinning on one spot because the belt can't move. After removing twisted hair/fibers, you probably only need to replace the belt.

Bought a new sweeper and brush ( beater bar ) does not turn. The large belt is fine and turns. The small thin belt is also fine but does not turn the brush. It is either the wrong belt or is there...


Jim, To put tension on the brush, tilt machine forward when upright, move carpet selector knob to carpet. then turn vac on. Brush will only spin when vac is tilted back to operate. brush stops when upright and on to use hand tools so the er is no danger to carpet or persons with moving roller.

Power head for Kenmore Canister Vac


Another potential problem for the increase in difficulty in turning the beater bar (drum) could stem from extremely dirty bearings, located at each end of the beater bar. I've seen hair knotted up to the point it chokes the bar and significantly reduces its ability tpo turn.

My vacuum doesnt **** dirt from the floor but sucks dirt with the nozzle.


Probably have a clogged intake from the beater bar thru to the vac system.. Try this.. with the vac unplugged, flip the vac over so you can get to the bottom of the vac head near where the brush rotates.. then depending on the model.. remove the cover to access the brush ( called a beater bar).
Once the cover has been removed ( may require removing several screws) .. look at the beater bar and make sure the belt is hooked up.. you should be able to lift that brush assembly out of the housing to expose the duct where dirt travels into the bag.. that path ( including the flex hose) is probably clogged up...clean out any debris found there.. ( if you have access to another vacuum..try sucking that junk out with it or use a stick or coat hanger to pry anything lodged in there out.. When that is clear, reassemble things and try it again.. Hope this helps you

LOUD NOISE FROM HOOVER POWERMAX ii


These vacs can stop up in almost inaccessible places. That sound means that it has stopped up somewhere and the electric motor is in a strain. Keep it running like that long enough and the motor is toast. I have one that seems to prefer the hose area where it goes by the motor and into the bag. The tube from the motor to the bag also is prone to stop up. To take these apart requires that you start at the beater bar area and work you way inward. In certain areas if you look closely, you'll see little arrows pointing to the screws. These are the ones that will allow you to get closer to the innards of these. When you get to where the motor is, look for blockages from the attachment hose. It takes only small items to completely block it off which will effect performance from both the beater bar/normal intake and also from use of the hose itself. The b***ards can be a pain to keep functional. I've personally removed rather sizeable wads of dog hair from mine that mucked up the works rather than went into the bag. Belts for the beater bar are notoriously short lived in these as well. When they break, the vacuum is only good as a floor sweeper. Stock up on both belts and bags for these. Good luck!
