Question about Hoover U6630-900 WindTunnel Bagless Upright Vacuum

1 Answer

Bought a new sweeper and brush ( beater bar ) does not turn. The large belt is fine and turns. The small thin belt is also fine but does not turn the brush. It is either the wrong belt or is there something that could be missing to put tension on it ?? Thank You jim.conway@realliving.com

Jim, To put tension on the brush, tilt machine forward when upright, move carpet selector knob to carpet. then turn vac on. Brush will only spin when vac is tilted back to operate. brush stops when upright and on to use hand tools so the er is no danger to carpet or persons with moving roller.

A burning smell when in use


Martinsivyer:

Turn the machine upside-down and see if you can turn the beater/brush bar with your hand. You should see the brush turning and feel the resistance from the motor. The brush/beater bar may be binding, and what you are smelling is the motor shaft spinning against the rubber belt. You can remove the base plate and check the brush/beater bar with the belt disconnected. If the brush/beater bar is difficult to turn, you need to remove the brush/beater bar and clean the bearings at each end, Remove any threads that are wound around the beater bar ends so that the bearings roll easily and smoothly. Check to see that your machine is not set too low for the surface that you are bacuuming. While you have the belt disconnected, check thi inside surface to see if the motor shaft has been spinning against the belt, you'll see the damage to the inside circumfrence of the belt.

How do you replace the beater bar belt on the hoover u 6626-900


It is not a "Beater Bar". Hoovers have brush rollers and are easy to replace. Turn the machine over and remove the 4 screws which hold the cover on, over the brush. Remove the brush roller. Slide the new roller through the small belt (self propelled models) and secure into slots (note: slots are different, match roller sides to correct slot.

I was running my vac when it caught the fringe on a throw. I turned it off and carefully pulled it out but now I don't have any suction and it's not cleaning the carpet.


Don't know the model too well but the beater bar is what goes when that happens(the brush that goes around right there on the intake of the sweeper) it has a belt that makes it turn and you probably broke the belt or burnt it up or it came off so it is the belt that is the problem. That will give you those symptoms because the beater bar (rotating brush) is what lifts the dirt up so it can be sucked in.

I am not sure of the part name but on the bottom there is a brush/sweeper that should turn and mine no longer turns.


The beater bar is either jammed with string or threads inbetween the housing or the belt inside of it is off or broke.Turn the beater bar upside down, remove the screws and seperate the housing.Please let me knowif this helps or if you need further assistance

Brush won't turn.


Hi, W/D here.

You'll need to remove the base plate around the beater bar, and remove any hair that is around the ends of the beater bar. It tends to collect there, along with bits of string, ribbon, and such. When you're removing the hair, be aware of how the beater bar fits in the sockets that hold it in the vacuum frame; you have to replace them in the right way or the beater bar will rub.

Best regards, --W/D--

How do i change the belt on the bissell powersteamer 1697w????


Ok taking the cover off is good. I believe the the little red thing is the beater bar. This beater bar has brushes on it an extends the width of the vacum. Pull the beater bar out straight. Some times it is tight. Next is to place the new belt around the spindle in the back and slide the beatrer bar into the belt. No twists! Besure to have the beater bar with the seperated area with no brushes inline with the belt.Now place the beater bar in place. Make sure you turn the beater bar so on the side the slotted portion slides all the way in place. Replace your cover. Turn it on and try it.
I believe this will work. Let me know.
