Why doesn't the brush roller rotate?


Hi, this is Jim with Crucial Vacuum,

The belt may not be broken, but it may be lacking in tension and therefore unable to rotate the brush roll on its own. You're going to want to replace your vacuums belt every 3 to 6 months depending on usage. Check to see if the belt is loose, or over stretched.

Check the brush roll as well and be sure its securely locked into place. It could be slightly loose causing a lack of communication between itself and the belt. Our video can help with fitting the belt in properly with the brush roll:

Hoover linx


How old is your battery? and did you keep it on charge when it was not in use?
Most rechargeable batteries require a spindown, where as you completely discharge the battery before recharging it again.
I know you aren't wanting to hear this but in all probability that battery is spent and will need to be reconditioned at a battery place, however, it will cost almost as much as a new one it would be your call.
if you have a ohm/volt meter it might be possible to look at the charger and get a volt/amp reading and then test it see if it is putting out the proper voltage it could be putting out a trickle charge and it would take forever to charge it.
there is one other situation to look at and if the beater brush or motor is causing a resistance it will pull a battery down quick.
I do not own this vaccum so I can only guess as to the possibilities.

Hoover linx brush motor


Locate the dimple somewhere around the edge of the two components to be separated.
Put a sheet or drop-cloth down and work on that to prevent anything from being lost if it opens suddenly. (it should be fine).
Use a large flat head screwdriver to pry it open.

Hoover linx battery, charger or unit itself?


As a former owner of one, my suggestion is that it be discarded rather than repaired.

Linx Hoover platinum won't turn on


more than likely you'll have to order a new handle. Those machines are built in pieces so you just cant replace switch, motor, etc....

However this can be a problem:There could be a clog in the hose or the bag/tank may be full and need to be replaced or emptied. Also, check the belt to see if it is worn or broken, if it's defective replace it.7_28_2012_10_15_39_am.jpg

My Hoover Linx handle broke.


Not sure what you mean by a broken handle, but if you mean the plastic is cracking where the handle connects to the main body than I have a suggestion. We have had this happen a couple times and I tried various fixes that did not work. However, recently I found a cheap product that will strength the handle to make it stronger than new. It called Fiber Fix tape (its on Amazon). Wet the tape and wrap the handle. It is a quick set epoxy in a fiberglass like cloth. Dries very hard. Not pretty, but it works great.

My Hoover Linx is not picking up anything. Nothing seems to be keeping the brushes from spinning but they are not working. It is only 3 months old. Fully charged.


I think you have 2 problems:
1. The LiNX gets clogged somethings in the head unit and the clog is difficult to see. Remove the head (via the push button). and clean out the clog. I do this with a lenngth of coat hanger wire that I bent a small hock on to the end.
2. If the roller stops turning it can be caused by one of the power wires to the moter getting severed in the swivel connection in the head unit. This has happened to us twice. I took the unit apart (a pain) and was able to fix by soldering and taping wires. However, Hoovers design is not great in getting power to the motor and this may recur. I love these vacuums and I hope they engineer a more robust wie feeding solution.
