I have a simplicity 7350 vacuum. The belt and roller have recently been replaced. It runs fine on floor mode and has no problems with suction. When I put the vacuum in carpet mode, I do not hear the motor...


the motor spins around a steel shaft that sticks out on one end, and the belt is driven by that shaft, belts are easily damaged and broken, meaning roller wont spin. Often a burning smell of rubber is noticed after motor shaft spins on stuck belt. cause is always hair./string/something at the three contact points. motor shaft and belt, roller and vacuum body become clogged. become familiar with taking cover off roller/belt, and cleaning Checking moving parts roller/belt come out easily and simple to clean...keep spare belts.

Changed belt. have burning smell


Take it back apart, check it again. Check the plastic where the belt is running for burnt spots. Also check the brush roller sometimes the tension from a new belt can finish off what was left of the bearings and cause the plastic end caps and roller to melt. Pull out the roller and try to spin it while holding the end caps. If it doesn't spin or spins hard there's your smell. Most times when the rollers go bad they break the belt. Replace the roller if necessary Make sure the roller is in correctly and flush and that the bottom plate goes on easily.


Good Luck

My hoover fusion carpet brush wont revolve


Hello, I hope your having a good day considering your problem.

It sounds like you have done everything and more you can at your end. My opinion based on your detailed description is that is possible you might need to barrings in your roller on both ends. Now sometimes you can take it to a local vac shop (just the roller of course) and they can put the new barrings in as well as maybe it is possible that something is just loose or warn out. Sometimes you are better (for cost of repair reasons) to buy a new roller. I would first personally, take the roller off, and take in to local shop and have them give you a price to replace or repair. That appears to me what has happened. Its also possible, some dirt and debre has got trapped in where there barrings are and it is sticky or just plan stuck. Mike

Beater bar belt install


  • 1

    Unplug the vacuum cleaner and turn it upside down, flat on the floor, with the roller brush facing up.

  • 2

    Remove the the bottom cover plate from the vacuum by prying it off gently with a screwdriver blade. Set aside the cover plate.

  • 3

    If the old belt is broke, remove it by pulling the belt from underneath the roller bush. If the belt is not broken but simply worn out, and is still attached, cut it off with scissors.

  • 4

    Remove the roller brush by lifting both ends from the grooved slots in the housing of the vacuum cleaner.

  • 5

    Cut away hair, thread, string and other debris wound around the roller, using the scissors. Tangles on the roller brush are a common reason for belt wear and breakdowns due to the added weight and stress on the roller brush.

  • 6

    Slip the replacement belt over the roller brush and seat the belt in the groove in the center of the roller.

  • 7

    Slide the roller brush back into the grooved mounts on either side of the housing and snap into place.

  • 8

    Pull back on the new belt and slip the loop over the pulley attached to the vacuum motor.

  • 9

    Replace the bottom cover by snapping it back on the housing until it clicks into place.

    The belt for the maain vaccume broke off and now with the new belt the roller will not work.


    It sounds like your roller brush itself might be bad. Try holding the roller brush holding just the end caps with your finger tips, and spinning the roller. Does the roller spin freely? If no, this indicates that your roller brush's bearings have melted together. This is a common problem for Bissell vacuums, as they use cheaper plastic bearing caps. The roller brush is not covered under the warranty either.

    When this part goes bad, this causes the belt to break almost immediately. If you tried replacing the belt, and it broke immediately, your roller brush has gone bad.

    Vaccum not turning or sucking


    Hello,

    It definitely sounds like your belt is broken. If something gets vacuumed up into the brushes, and prevents the brushes from spinning, the motor will continue to try and spin the belt and the brush, but since the brushes can't spin, this will burn right through most belts.

    Especially since you mentioned a sock being sucked up, and the roller brush not spinning, this is a tell tale sign of your belt needing replacing.

    Here's what you'll need to complete this repair:

    - Phillips Head Screw Driver
    - Hoover Windtunnel Replacement Belt, Non-Self Propelled, Hoover Part # 38528033
    - Depending on how long the sock was stuck in the brush, you may need a new roller brush as well. The roller brush for your model is Hoover Part # 48414110. Here's a direct link for the roller brush for your vacuum on our website:
    http://www.govacuum.com/generic-hoover-windtunnel-tempo-fusion-upright-12-inch-replacement-roller-brush-hoover-part-number-4.html

    If you have the Hoover Tempo Widepath vacuum that you listed the repair under, then here's a direct link back to our website, govacuum dot com, to the exact belt for your Hoover Tempo:
    http://www.govacuum.com/agbelhoovpar9.html

    Now, once you have a new belt, this repair is pretty straight forward. I'll explain step by step what you'll need to do to change the belt.

    Step 1. Make sure your vacuum cleaner is unplugged. The easiest way to change the belt in your vacuum is to turn the machine upside down, so the handle is on the ground holding it up, then lean the vacuum over a counter top or work bench.

    Step 2. Remove the bottom plate of your vacuum cleaner. You'll see on the bottom of the vacuum 4 screws that are located on each corner of the brush, remove all 4 screws, and lift up on the bottom plate that covers the roller brush.

    Step 3. After removing the bottom plate, you should now be able to access the roller brush completely, and you'll probably also notice that the belt on the right side of the roller brush is broken. You may just remove the broken belt completely and throw it away. Lift straight up on the roller brush itself to remove it from the vacuum.

    Step 4. Test the roller brush. After something gets stuck in the brushes, and it causes the belt to burn, there's also a good possibility that your roller brush may need replacing as well. Also the roller brush will wear down over time, and the brushes will wear down as well, greatly reducing the cleaning ability of your vacuum. You'll want to test your roller brush, to ensure that it spins freely. If it doesn't, then as you install the new belt, it's possible it could also break immediately. To test the roller brush, remove it completely from the vacuum. Holding just the end caps of the bar with your fingertips, try to spin the brush in your hands using your thumbs. This is how it should look when you test your brush (the roller brush is to a different machine, but testing it will work the same):

    3a76171.jpg
    The roller brush should spin at least 3 or 4 times in your hands on each spin. If the brush will not spin at all, or you feel some resistance when spinning it, then you'll probably want to go ahead and replace the roller brush as well at this point.

    Step 5. Once you have your new belt, and new roller brush (if needed), it's time to install them. First wrap one side of the belt over the metal motor pulley in the back of the vacuum, opposite the roller brush. Now after you have one side of the belt wrapped around this metal pin, put the roller brush through the other end of the belt. Using the roller brush as leverage, stretch the belt with the roller brush inside of it back into the roller brush tray. You'll notice that on the left bearing cap on the end of the roller brush, there's a little rectangular shaped notch. Make sure that the rectangular notch is vertical, and slide this end into the agitator housing first, then fit the other side (circular notch) into the housing. With a little bit of elbow grease, you'll be able to stretch the brush with the belt back into place.

    Step 6. Test the belt and the brush before putting the bottom plate back on. To make sure that belt and brush are properly installed, pull the belt forward towards the brush, and make sure that the brush spins while you're pulling the belt. If the brush does not spin, then either the belt is pinched underneath of the roller brush, or the brush is bad / installed incorrectly. Make sure that the brush spins freely before reinstalling the bottom the plate, otherwise the belt will burn and break again as soon as you turn on the vacuum.

    Step 7. Reinstall the bottom plate, and screw down the four screws. Now you can turn the vacuum on, and make sure that the brush is spinning. If the brush is not spinning, repeat the steps above to make sure that the belt and brush were put in correctly.

    That should fix your problem. Ideally you should change your belt at least once a year. Even if the belt doesn't break, it will stretch out. When the belt is stretched out, it will not pick up as well as a new belt will.

    Bottom roller bush does not spin


    Sounds as if the v-belt came off the idler arm or you broke the v-belt. Either way, take the 4 screws out of the plate around the roller brush and make certain the belt is there and that it sits on the idler wheel. If you remove the roller brush you'll see the wheel. Pay attention to how the ends of the roller brush go back into the vacuum when inserting it and put the plate back on. Also check the thicker main belt is in place as well, it's to the left of the v-belt.

    Also, the roller brush should stop when you put it in the upright position. Next time just stand it upright so the throw rug doesn't get drawn quite so far into the vacuum.

    Belts breaking frequently


    I had the same problem. Broke 2 belts before I got online and noticed this site! What I found was, the roller ends were not turning freely. I had cleaned the hair (nasty) off the roller, but the ends were still not able to spin around without some force.

    What I did was, removed the roller and on the 2 ends there are 2 black plastic caps which fit over the bearing, I removed the plastic caps and put a little WD-40 on the bearing, or any industrial lubricant, even new motor oil will work. After putting on the WD-40, I spun the roller end around a few times and the WD-40 lubricated the bearings and Voila! The roller end spun freely!! I put the black caps back onto the bearings on both sides, reinstalled a new belt, it's been working great since.

    It saves the cost of a new roller.

    Brush won't spin


    Yes it could be the belt or the "Bearing Assembly". I had the same problem with a vacuum I got from a friend. 1st I replace the belt,but when I turned the vacuum on I could smell something burning and then the belt broke in half. I then realized the brush roller was stuck in place and would not turn even with force applied. I later found out that 1 of the 2 Bearing Assembly's was worn out,when a Bearing Assembly is worn out the brush roller can not spin. So now it looks like I need to buy a whole new brush roller,unless I can find a place that sells the Bearing Assembly for part number 61445-1,which is a roller brush for a GE Wal Mart vacuum.
