Question about Hoover U6630-900 WindTunnel Bagless Upright Vacuum
I've replaced the belt but that didn't work. When it's on, the brush roll does not go to "on" and always is "off" how do I fix this? Is it the brush that needs replacing? If yes, how do I do that?
There are two belts on this machine. The first is a flat rubber belt that is designed to slip or break if the roller is jammed. This bet requires replacement at least once a year. It is vitally important to get the proper belt, as there is no other that will fit and function. The second is a v-belt and the early model belts were too thin and would sit down in the pulley too far and the tension required to drive the roller would be less than sufficient. When the handle is in the upright position, the roller stops. When the handle is lowered, there is an idler arm and pulley that sits down on the v-belt and tightens it enough to rotate the roller. In some cases, the tire on the pulley will come off and will not put enough force on the belt to tighten it.
There is also an adjustment on the hood of the machine to turn the roller off for bare floor cleaning. This adjustment should only be made with the handle in the upright position.
The belt(s) can look just fine and still be worn out. Replacing the belts is always the first solution and the least expensive.
