On my Hoover Savvy U8174-900 on carpet setting, the brush spins when I pull the vacuum towards me, but stops when I push it forward. Belt is tight and fine.


Hoover savvys have two very common problems that cause this. The first and most obvious is the belt that you checked already. Many times the belt is tight but those particular belts have teeth and should you lose any teeth on the brushroller OR the belt it can cause this.

The other problem this is a symptom of is a bad switch in the handle. It sounds odd but the switch assy in these machines controls 2 motors, one that causes vacuum another that causes the belt to turn! Often time that switch assembly is bad and the smaller motor that drives the belt does not run when the handle is in a certain position. This causes your brush to stop but since the louder bigger vaccum motor is still operating you never hear the small one quit. I would run this again and listen for a difference in sound. In this case you will buy a replacement circut board that is installed in the handle (i usually replace the entire handle assy, the small extra cost is worth the dependability as nobody can seem to determine for sure what makes them go bad)

You can get the parts from any hoover service center, use their dealer locator to find the nearest one. Be sure to take the old parts in and compare when buying new, hoover makes running changes to their product so 2 machines with the same model number can be different.

Aside from a stray bad or pinched wire you're more than surely dealing with one of those two items. I'd focus on the first paragraph as that is by far most common and least expensive.

Best of Luck!!

Hoover savvy upright, replaced belt, but brushes will not turn


One of the common problems with the Savvy models is the upper handle switch. However if it is newer, you may also have an issue with the lower cable. To test it, turn on switch in carpet mode, and at the bottom rear, wiggle thr exposed black cable. if the roller starts and stops then it is bad and needs replacement. the cost of the part is about $10 but labor intensive to replace.

Hoover Savvy self propulsion not working


The switch contacts are burned out and the switch must be replaced. This link sells the whole handle with switch but, check your serial number to be sure to get the right one. If you can use a Philips head screwdriver, you can do this easily.

I HAVE A HOOVER VACCUM CLEANER MODEL U8172-900. i HAVE TAKEN IT APART AND CANNOT TAKE THE TOP COVER OFF TO CHANGE THE BELT. CAN YOU HELP ME?


This must be a Savvy, Take off the plate covering the brush roll, then take out 2 screws from the bottom, turn it over, remove the Hoover emblem, there is another ***** there. Then the top cover will come off.
