Question about Hoover U5780-900 Windtunnel Cyclonic Bagless UprightVacuum
Replaced with the first belt and as soon as I turned on the vacuum it smelled like burning rubber. That belt broke and now I have replaced it with second belt and the same thing has occurred. The brush does not turn. Just the motor turns on and the belts begins to spoke and then the burning smell. I bought the size belt that was in the manual. What is the problem?
Check the ends of your brush roll. Most have bearings on the end and if one of those is locked up and will not turn it will burn the belt. Sometimes hair will get in the bearing area and will contribute to the bearing locking up.

There is a belt tensioner that maybe not contacting the belt when you tilt the handle back, It is either jammed and not moving up and down freely or it is broke. Look down below the belt, there should be a small wheel, that has to contact the belt.

Mosture has gotten into the motor. Take the bottom tank off and let the unit run for 30 seconds. It will dry out the compartment

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 !!

better to replace both belts the smaller one is stretched out thats whyits slipping ,be sure to clean the old rubber off the motor shaft before replacing the belts.it will cause the new belts to run unevevly and go bad before their time
