I cannot remove a broken fan from a hoover upright vacuum. i have the machine diassembled, but cannot remove the fan from the shaft.

sometime you have to take the motor apart and hold the armeture but you have to be careful not to damage it or if you have a good impact it will come loose with that

The vacumn runs but brush dose not turn belt is good. It's a dyson 110 us c 10417

Now is it air driven or belt driven? It could be the belt that's not turning the brush. Check if the belt is loose or is broken. If it's air driven, then check and see how the condition of the bearings are. If it doesn't roll smoothly then you need to replace the brush roller. If it does roll smoothly then check if there's a blockage in the line.

Dyson make noise after replacing brushroll

Try this open sole plate check make sure belt is not pinched, broken or binding, that thee are no strings or hair between belt & roller,& that belt it is centered on roller.
Be careful & turn roller by hand should torn smoothly except for belt tension.
Also check make sure end bearings are seated correctly. (the parts at the end of the roller where they go into housing.)

We had to take the machine apart just to see that the belt had broken after only 5 use's . We can not see how we are ever going to put the new belt back on. do you have instructions on how to take the...

I have a Panasonic MC-V5746 upright vacuum. According to the booklet,
1. Place carpet-bare floor selector in "carpet" position.
2. Remove lower plate (there are two screws in the middle of the lower plate), and a pair of locking tabs located near the wheels that you push toward the wheels.
3. Carefully pull agitator brush up and out and clean it.
4. Look new belt around the motor shaft (I had to turn the belt edgewise to get it back in there). On my unit, there are two shafts. Put it around the one furthest back and don't worry if it doesn't touch the other one.
5. Pull the other end of the belt and loop it around the "brush pulley" which is the narrow track on one end of the brush.
6. reinstall agitator back into nozzle housing grooves.
7. Turn the brush by hand to make sure it moves smoothly and isn't pinched or twisted.
8. Reinstall lower plate.

Depending on which style you have, it may have a opening on the right side as you look at the front of the machine. If not you may need to remove the cover. If it does it says "belt access" and has two 1/8" (about) slots in the cover. with a small screw driver or something similar insert tool into slot and gently pry(if you are looking from the side) the left slot up and towards the right and the right slot up and to the left. It will slowly (or quickly depending on how hard you have to push) pop up and you can slide it off and see the pump. I think it is easier to just remove the 4 screws that hold the pump in place so you can replace both belts at the same time and not struggle with having to stretch the new belts. The last time I did this the Sprocket(small metal peice with teeth that turns the brushes) had broken off. I cleaned and dried everything and used 30 second epoxy to glue the sprocket back on and it works fine lasts a long time. Once you have removed the 4 screws holding the pump you can use a flashlight and screwdriver, knitting needle, pen etc. to hook the belt from the brush on to the pump shaft(sprocket) very easy. You may need to tilt and angle the pump a little to gt the belt over the lip on the sprocket. Like I did when I did this you will need to put the smooth belt on over the pump shaft first then put on the brush belt and screw the pump back into place (4 screws just snug because you can easily strip the plastic mounting holes) and put smooth belt on the electric motor shaft. you may need to stretch the belt a little because it has no gears it is just friction that turns the pump. Clean and dry everything this will make this repair last longer. If you will take a few minutes after each use to clean at least around the belt area they will last a long time. You can even put a belt conditioner on them for added life. Have a wonderful day!!!!!

Belt keeps breaking on vacuum.

Clean the hair off the bearings. Remove the brush. Pry off the end caps and remove the hair under and around the bearings. I used a kitchen fork.
