Question about Hoover Hardware & Accessories

Loud knocking noise

The vacuum caught on a shaggy rug, I turned it off and it smelled like smoke. Removed the brush cover and did not see any thing caught in the brushes. It now makes a very loud thumping, knocking noise. Not sure if it could be the belt - because this happened in less than five minutes of its very first use!

SOURCE: Makes a loud noise like a grinding noise.

Your belt is worn and stretched and so it is slipping on the motor drive shaft. That is why it is noisy and smells like burning rubber. You simply need to replace the belt. You can get replacement belts here:

You also need to pull off the yellow bearings from the end of the brushes (one on the brush one and one on the rubber one) and remove hair from the axle there.

SOURCE: The floor brush will not

I recently had a similar problem where the vacuum would turn on but the brush would not rotate. I could hear the motor turn on and the belt was in tact, but the brushes would not turn. I took out the brushroll and it would not turn by hand either. There is a white cap on one end of the roll and a black one on the other. Use a hammer and a punch (or sturdy screwdriver) on the metal rod from the white end to knock the metal rod out of the roll. There is a bearing and wave washer on each end. I cleaned all of the hair and gunk out of both bearings and it rotated much better. I actually bought a couple of new bearings (trade # 608 - same size as what's in rollerblades) and lightly sanded the surfaces where the roll and caps meet so I hopefully won't have to do this again for a while. I heard of people putting WD-40 on the rims of the caps, but I wouldn't recommend this because I don't think the plastic would react well to it. Hope this helps.

Bissel vacuum cleaner


Some thing like rug or too much hair vine the brush to prevent the brush to spin when the motor is on. So it just keep pulling the belt that's why there is smoke.
-Check it , clean it and possibly need to replace new belt.

Good luck/Keep clean

While using the power mate rug part I caught a small rug and the vacuum would no longer pick-up .


Check to see if there is a reset button on the head. This protects the machine for times like you described. When something jms up the reset button will turn ofdf th machine. Simply push the reset. Hope this helps, Chris

Burning smell loud grinding noise when tilted


Hi there SmartAlec from NelsonVacuums.com.au here. The rattle is the clutch engaging. It can happen for a couple of reasons. The best case for you is if there is something caught in the brush roller that you can simply remove. The next best is that the end caps of the brush are full of junk that you will be able to remove. Its not easy getting the brush out to clean there but it can be done.
If the brush spins in your hand easily when the brush is removed then it is the clutch itself. THe main roller often melts which is caused when the tension on the belt gets to high thus creating too much heat. THis can be resolved only with a new clutch.
Hope this helps, if you have more questions dont hesitate to reply or if you need parts just visit

Loud rattling noise.


Hi there SmartAlec from NelsonVacuums.com.au here. Often when an upright is making a rattling noise it can be something caught in the roller and every time the brush turns it knocks against the body and since it turns really fast it can sound quite bad. Take the roller out and clean inside that area and see if that helps. Hope it does. Happy Vacuuming :)

My dyson D17 is making an incredibly loud noise, like grinding, when the bottom brush rotates.


Remove the bottom cover plate and rotate the brush by hand. Look for things that make noise like stones caught in the brush path, bad brush bearings, bad drive belt.

Wind tunnel supreme sounds very loud


Sounds like a bad motor, you have a years warranty on this, take it in for warranty repair. You will void the warranty if you mess with it.

Burning smell and smoke


When you turn it on....is the belt turning the brushes? Something may be caught causing the brushes to stick and the belt to just grind the brush assembly.
