Question about Hoover U5018-900 Bagged Upright Vacuum
Bottom roller doesn't stop...is it suppossed to keep going while i am using the attachments?
Hi in answer to your question regarding the belt driven roller/brush on bottom of vac ? the nswer is yes it still rotates when you are using the tools on connection to flex hose ie stair carpet or areas the vac will not enter one word of advice ! if you use the vac/tools to vac the car interior as i and others do ? then ensure that whilst vac is stood and the flex hose and tool are in use? suggest you stand the vac on a flat surface(not the tarmacdrive or any porouse surface) preferably a rubber mat? or board so the rollerbrush is not subject to damage or apt to pick up stone chips etc which will eventually damage the motor impellor hope this helps answer your question and understand the safety point i mentioned best wishes

Unplug the vacuum cleaner and turn it upside down, flat on the floor, with the roller brush facing up.
Remove the the bottom cover plate from the vacuum by prying it off gently with a screwdriver blade. Set aside the cover plate.
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.
Remove the roller brush by lifting both ends from the grooved slots in the housing of the vacuum cleaner.
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.
Slip the replacement belt over the roller brush and seat the belt in the groove in the center of the roller.
Slide the roller brush back into the grooved mounts on either side of the housing and snap into place.
Pull back on the new belt and slip the loop over the pulley attached to the vacuum motor.
Replace the bottom cover by snapping it back on the housing until it clicks into place.
