    How do you replace the belts?
    Is the 40201170 the correct belt to replace it with?

    I have the 6634-900 model. I bought it at Target, about a year ago, brand new in the box. I have had trouble with the self-propelled option not working, and the on-off switch does not work. But, the real problem is the roller does not spin. It will roll if I push it sometimes. And the suction is good, so it picks up somethings in its path. I just spoke with Hoover, and I have to produce the receipt, take it to a local dealer, and if it is out of warranty, I am looking at a minimum bill of $50-75 and higher.

    Out of frustration last night, wanting to vacuum....I took apart the handle and re-aligned the on-off switch and positioned the self-propelled option in the off position and tape it, on the outside, so it would not move. Now, the vacuum will turn on and off and I am not going to use the self-propelled option. Soooooooo frustrating. And what a dirty job..ugh.

    The repair store said because the little v-shaped belt looks shiny on the side, it might be caused by a pulley switch not operating...where is the pulley switch located?

Mine does the same thing. There is no suction. I found that there is a door that opens when you tilt the handle in the down possition. I think there should be a spring in place so it can open. Until I find a replacement spring I have to open the door manually throught the opening under the light.

Your belts are worn out. These belts should be replaced once a year.

When should I replace my vacuum roller brush? How long should the bristles be to properly pick up debris? It doesn't seem to pick up on our tile floor any more. (NSS-Pacer-115UE)

If the vacuum is weak, it may not be the brush. Bag and filters need to be clean and empty. No obstruction in the vacuum system. Motor running at full speed. etc etc.

My kirby shampooer doesnt seem to be placing foam on the floor like it should and it's not picking up any at all

Mine did that once and we were missing the filter part on the end of the shampoo hose attachment.fits on the end of the hose. Bought a new one at the Kirby store for cheap. It looks like a filter screen and without it just seems to soak the carpet without foaming up or cleaning it very well.

My hoover windtunnel is not picking anything up all of a sudden. Also the roller underneith is not spinning. I've replaced filters and the attachment part is working fine, just when it's in the upright...

The belt that drives the brush roll has broken. That's why it doesn't pick up and why it doesn't pull itself forwards. Check the User Manual (download from Hoover website if necessary) for information on replacing the belt. Good luck!

My vacuum doesnt seem to **** up anything

It is either clogged or a inlet filter is blocked with dust. If something is clogging pickup tube. Flip over and clean out. Take off dirt catcher and make sure it is clean.

Poor suction

Check the inlet down by the brush roll, make sure it is open, if it is then the hose itself must have a clog. If the hose comes off, drop something like a marble in one end and see it it comes out the other end, if it doesn't then you have a clog.
