Over time the belt stretches and gets to big to stay put all of the time. Get a new Hoover belt and install it. That will solve your problem

Belt keeps coming off


Hi There,
Most likely 1 of 3 problems.
1. The belt is stretched and so is just slipping off
Solution change the belt
2. THe brush roller has siezed bearings so brush cant turn properly so belt is slipping off the shaft.
Solution - check see if roller turns easily by hand if not change the bearings.
3. THe motor has twisted in its body due to cracked housing or worn rubber seats.
Solution- Depending on your skill and age of vacuum replace the housing or the vacuum.

The brush motor starts and stops during use


Is it the actual motor stopping or the belt that spins the brush that's slipping? if its belt slip, this happens, pretty common on all belt vacs, dirt and dust gets under the belt and causes it to just slip with no actual grip on the brush end. This slipping can also cause to much friction ware and actually changes the inner diameter of the belt so even cleaned it would still (maybe) slip so need a replaced belt.

But I'd take the belt off first and clean it as well as the heads it spins over then try it again. Make sure you unplug from the wall, a vac brush can and will take your fingers clean off.

Belt squeels when the roller starts turning. only used about 10 times. Small belt under cover is very loose, but it shouldn't be worn out after only about 10 uses. does the small bell just rest on the belt...


Normally the belts should last longer than 10 uses, but if the roller brush catches something like a rug fringe it can cause the belt to slip off or even stretch to the point it won't turn the brush. In case you need a new belt here is a link and here is also a link to the manual. Hope it helps!

The small belt attached to the roll brush keeps slipping off. It's a brand new belt and the vacuum is only 1 yr old.


The small belt rarely gives the problem you describe. The larger belt can jump off if the belt is worn or if th roller gets caught on something suddenly.The belt should be replaced every 9 - 12 months. If your carpet setting is too low this will cause the belts to wear faster that the estimated given time

Why are new belts breaking immediately?


Could be the brush has resistance..
While the new belt is in place - spin the brush by hand.. The brush should spin reasonably freely..
If not - take the brush out and inspect it.. Be sure the ends are not jammed and you can snin them easily.. If not - replace the brush..
PS - the belt goes in one way.. If inside-out - it will not last as long..
Directions on packageing..

Hope this helps !!

Eureka 4870 roller only spins in upright


if the belt has been slipping it may have pollished the moteror brush shaft and it just slips. take a small piece of sand paper or enery cloth and ruffen up the shaft to give it some grip.
if the metal shaft of the motor has been heated up due to slippage it will take some doing to ruffun it as the shaft will be hardend due to heat

Roller brush won't spin (bissel 6390/3910 series)


I just fixed mine. It took me all of 10 minutes. Pull the brush out. Stand the brush on end on the edge of your study work bench/table top. while holding the brush vertical( on end) take a small phillips screwdriver and tap using a hammer on the metal pin you see in the middle of the brush. Keep tamping and the whole assembly will come apart. What you will have then is a long metal shaft, 2 bearings(they are acutally skateboard wheel bearings same number same make). Clean the gobbed up hair with a razor blade and then reassemble by tapping back together. The bearing wont be worn out because they are way too tough for a vaccum. We used ride down hills on them! a ten minute fix wow and you wont have to drive to vacuum shop and spend $$ and time

Roller problem


I have 3 Prontos, one in each part of the house. Two of mine had the rollers stop. I figured out the problem and it fixed both. Take the roller out by turning the plastic screw and popping the plate off. Pull all debris off the wheel that turns. Turn unit on and make sure this wheel is turning freely. Take the brush and look on the end with the square part. Take some pliers and gently pull this square piece off. I had to wiggle it a little, but it pops right off. Clean all debis (mine had several small dust balls and 1 long hair) in the square part and down in where the square part goes. Push the square part back on and put brush back in unit. This fixed both of mine. Hope it helps.
