The bearings at the end of the roller brushes need lubricating. The belt may be too shiny to be useful now so replace it after you lube the brush

SOURCE: Hoover windtunnel will NOT turn on

You have to remove the motor cover, There I believe 5 screw, take off the light lens and remove the screw holding the light. It should then pull off. You say you have power to the Vac, but do you have power to the motor. There also is a thermo by the motor, sometimes they open up, then the motor won't run.

I have a DC41. The power head wont turn and is making a squealing noise.


Sounds like your power head is seized or almost seized. Possibly real dirty. take apart and lubricate ends and replace the belt I feel is slipping Hence the squealing.. Clean all parts thoroughly.

Very loud "jet like" noise,please


Hi,

Vacuums are noisy, but shouldn't sound like a jet.....

Trying to find out what is wrong depends on what kind of noise it makes, i.e. high squeal, vibration, whining and where it comes from.

Here is a webpage with troubleshooting advice on noise in vacuum cleaners. Hopefully you should be able to track down the problem. http://www.ehow.com/how_7493926_fix-noise-vacuum-cleaner-motor.html

If you need further help with repairs, please reply back. Thanks,

On hoover steam carpet cleaner, the brushes do not rotate on low or high settings.


Follow these steps if the Brushes Fail to Spin
•If the brushes on your Hoover carpet cleaner fail to spin, there may be a problem---some sort of blockage---with the suction or with the belt that turns the brushes.
Turn the Hoover carpet cleaner over, and inspect the brush area. Debris, strings, or pet hair may be tangled in the rollers, keeping them from turning. Use a pair of scissors to cut away any obstructions in this area. Flip the Hoover carpet cleaner back over, and turn it on to see if cleaning the rollers has solved the problem.
To check the belt, turn the Hoover carpet cleaner over, and remove the bottom plate screw with a Phillips head screwdriver. Investigate the belt area to see if it is broken or has somehow slipped off. If it is broken, you can order a part from Hoover.com or from many of the other online parts stores.
When the belt arrives, simply slide it on in place of the broken belt, reattach the bottom plate and turn the Hoover carpet cleaner right-side up. Turn it on to test your solution.

The head on my Hoover Canister vacuum has stopped working


It sounds like the power connection pins, from the handle tube to the powerhead, are not making connection. The pins could have been damaged when you impacted it.

Bearing screeching?


Hello,
Yes, it could be a motor bearing. Another possibility is the fan could be broken. Remove the bottom plate from vacuum. Spin the belt motor pulley slowly and view the fan. You may have a plastic fan that has broken or something is keeping the fan from spinning. Here are links with illustrations to an online guide. (the links will say "belts" but it will show how to get to the fan). Click the one that best matches your vacuum.
Hope this helps.
