Brush spins once then stops.


I don't know this machine but I'd check the bearings on the ends of the brush to see if they are spinning freely. If it has a drive belt try changing it, if it is an impeller drive check the vanes for damage.

By the way this machine I believe has a 5 year warrenty,

1) adjust the belt, see for broken or worn, and replace
2)see for brushroller obstruction, and clean it and repair
3) see if the brushroller without belt run smooth, otherwise repair and fix it.Lubricate.

I have a bissell 7901-1 carpet cleaner and the gear the runs the beater bar is loose how does it connect to the pump thanks


turn your unit over so you are looking at the bottom (side towards floor) on either side of the brush are a phillip's screw- one side will show a larger red piece- take that phillips screw out, it will show you the pump you can take the belt access cover off and see the one belt, the belt to the beater brush is gear like- take the belt that connects to the brush and loop it over the gear on the pump- then put the brush belt over the brush and seat it back into the protector- I would suggest you hand spin the brush to ensure both belts and the pump are turning otherwise You may do like I did and burn the other belt- I replaced both belts just because it made sense- reseat the red piece you removed then replace and tighten the screw-

Brushes don't spin


Hello :
try this please : switch the carpet/bare floor dial back & forth 5 times, ending on carpet. Tilt the handle back as if to vacuum upright & lay the vacuum on its side so it is resting on the side opposite the carpet/bare floor dial. Turn the vacuum on.
or try this also if the above suggestion didn't work :
Maybe the belt is broke. You will have to replace the belt before the roller can spin. You must have run over something in the carpeting like string or whatever to have it break. Happens all the time. Get several replacement belts to keep as spares while you're at it as nothing is worse then having to vacuum and no spare belts.
please rate !

Dear Expert, the vacuum is not working in normal mode but if i use pipe then it works. Any suggestions? thanks khangee


Hello,

So usually when an upright vacuum works well when using the attachment hose, but doesn't work well when vacuuming on the floor mode, this typically means that you have a belt problem. This is very easy to diagnosis. Turn the machine sideways so the brushes are facing you while the machine is plugged in. Be careful and make sure there's no hair, or clothing near the brushes, and turn the vacuum on. When you do this, are the bottom brushes spinning? If the brushes are spinning, with the vacuum running, put the vacuum brushes down on the carpet as if you were vacuuming, and listen to the brushes. Can you hear the brushes stop when you put the vacuum brushes on carpeting?

If your brushes are not spinning, or if you the brushes stop when you put the vacuum down on carpeting, this is a clear sign that you have either a stretched, or broken belt. Many people equate a broken or stretched belt to loss of suction because without the belt, the vacuum really can not pick up much at all off of the floor. When the vacuum doesn't pick up, many people assume the vacuum has lost suction.

Your roller brush may or may not also be bad. Installing a new belt properly will help you answer this question.

Please see the link below for the owners manual to a model that's similar to the model you posted this repair question under. The belt change will be identical. The belt change instructions starts on page 13 of the .pdf

http://www.hoover.com/pdfs/manuals/C1414900.pdf

I hope that this information was helpful to you, if so please be sure to rate my repair as helpful by clicking the thumbs up icon in the top of the repair.

If the belt is fine on your vacuum, please also let me know by leaving a comment here on the repair page, I can then go through some more advanced troubleshooting with you.

Thank you,

Chris J.

The brushes will not turn but the shampooer will come on


1) check the filter by the spin indicator (the plastic cover snaps off). Clean if necessary. See if this solves your problem.

2) take out the spin brush assembly (pull out, there may be tabs you need to push to get it all the way out. Clean out dirt and hair. This may be all you need to do, if not take step 3

3) turn on the machine with the brush assembly out. Do you see where the square shaft the drives the brushes goes in? If the socket does not spin, you probably have a seized up turbine assembly.

4) remove the top that covers the motor/turbine (you probably have to take out some screws) The turbine assembly is towards the front. Remove this (again, a couple of screws) and turn it over--there will be some gears. If you can get these gears turning smoothly together you should get the turbine working again. I used a pair of pliers to turn the metal shaft.

Put everything back together and try it out!

Brushes won't turn


Sounds like you have broken belt. I had the same thing happen, Got replacement belts, but can't figure out how to get the smaller belt back on. There two larger belts - one on each end of the brushes under the clear plastic covers. On the left side there a single silver metal gear, but nothing to hook up the other end of the small belt to drive the brushes. If you take yours apart let me know how to hook up the smaller belt.

Hello,
I would advise you to ALWAYS to FIRST UNPLUG YOUR VACUUM before beginning any service procedure.
There are 2 types of Turbo Brushes, the electric type driven by a power head or power nozzle most likely used on a canister type vacuum or a central vacuum driven by electricity and there is an air driven power head. In either case the belt should be riding on the brushroll pulley on the end or if it is an air driven power head, sometimes the pulley section is in the middle, and the other end would run off the motor pulley / shaft. If you have a flat belt it is suggested that you change the belt every 4 to 6 months, if you have a geared belt, suggested change would be one year or so. I am not sure on the Brand of turbo brush you have, but you can refer to your local vacuum cleaner dealer in your area or the yellow pages, or contact the manufacturer for a phone # or website address, some times if you have a air driven turbo power brush it may be cost efficient to replace the brush instead of repairing the turbo brush. Just a suggestion.
Example: www.turbobrush.com – this may or may not be the website address not knowing the brand name.
Thanks, Don – The Vac Man
