I have a Hoover Anniversary Special Edition and the Power Brush stays in the Off position. What am I doing wrong. It will not go into the "on" position. I have changed the floor surfaces and still it does not come on?

U6485-900 WindTunnel Self-Propelled I changed the belts but there is not enough tension on the brush drive belt to get it to rotate


I had the exact same problem with my Hoover U6485-900 Anniversary upright, self propelled, vacuum. It would move backwards and forwards, had good vacuum, but wouldn't pick up much because the brush/roller was not turning very well. I replaced the main drive belt (38528035) and it now works great. The old belt had stretched and was slipping under load. Thanks for the great suggestions.

I have a hoover f5914-900 steam vac.. and I was wondering if there's a way to take apart the spin brushes to get them cleaned out well. I loaned it to family, and the brushes came back extremely soiled and...


The brush block may be removed from the base for rinsing.
Yes, you can CAREFULLY disassemble the brush block assembly by releasing each of three latches that hold each of the clear gear covers to the main block. A small screwdriver is used to GENTLY lift each tab, one at a time. Pay attention to what position the special gear is at that has the drive pin (1/4 inch square drive) for correct reassembly.

Here is the link to the User Manual that shows how to remove the brushes from the base.

My Hoover U5491900 Anniversary Windtunnel will not pick up very well, there is good suction when I use the attachments, but when I use it on the floor it won't pick up much, what is wrong with it and how...


The reason why it is not picking up well is because the belt is worn or stretched and it can't turn the brush (which picks up debris) against the resistance of the carpet. Here is the belt you need:

(1) Assure the brush shut off lever on the hood is not set to the off position.
(2) Is there still a square pin standing up from the one drive brush? It should be 1/4 square, and about two inches tall. That pin is the drive from the transmission to the brushes.
There are no belts. The transmission is air and gear drive mechanism.

Brush roller on Hoover upright stops turning


There should be a belt tensioner for the V belt, maybe it is not contacting the belt when you tilt the handle back. If this is less then 1 year old, then it is under warranty, take it in to a warranty servicer for warranty repair.

My brushes don't rotate on the on position. I have a SteamVac V2.


Do you hear the motor for the beater bar brush running? If so, you'll probably need to replace the brush drive belt.. If not.. you may have a broken wire suppling power to the brush motor.. or the switch is bad.. Hope that helps..

Hoover Vacuum correction


I don't know what is your experience with wire's soldering, but you should remove the insulation from the damaged wire and solder the disconnected edges. Then wrap an insulation band on the repaired wire first and then on all the other wires. Be aware power cable is disconnected !!!! If you can't do it by yourself - repair cost for it should be very cheap. Good luck !!
