That means that the belt is starting to wear. When the belt starts to stretch it can't turn the roller brush against the resistance of the carpet. The lower the setting the more resistance. You simply need to change the belt. Here is a link to the belt you need and to the manual:

Vacuum's brush does not spin on (low) carpet unless switched to "high" but then roller does not pick up hair on carpet. Belts are in good condition. Maybe belts are loose?
Hello,
I would advise you to ALWAYS to FIRST UNPLUG YOUR VACUUM before beginning any service procedure. Your problem is that you may need to change the belt every 4 to 6 months as a recommended belt change on the vacuum and also keep an eye on the brushes or brush strips; they also help in the vacuum working properly. Here is a typical belt change on a Hoover. Normally there are screws, clips or levers that would remove the bottom plate or if that does not work then the top cover will come off and that will expose the belt. Once that is off and the belt is exposed then cut off the old belt and then lift up the brushroll on the pulley end and install the new belt around the pulley end and re-install the brushroll. Then use a belt puller or a screwdriver with a bent right or left end to stretch the belt onto the motor pulley and then track the belt in a straight line and reverse you steps in the reinstall of the top cover or bottom plate. So if you need further assistance, please feel free to contact your local vacuum cleaner dealer in your area or in the yellow pages, or contact the factory phone number or website to further assist you with your questions.

Why is it such hard work to hoover the carpet with the dyson dc 33.it is really hard just pushing it across a new carpet.


Are your belts working and is your power head set too low? Try raising it up one or two clicks. A broken belt will not let your brushes spin and a spinning brush will help it go on carpets.

The beater brush will no longer drive under a load on short pile carpet


Have you tried changing the height adjustment? There should be a knob or lever that allows you to adjust the height of the beater brush to accommodate different carpet lengths. Even with a new belt, the brush will not spin if the height is too low. Try adjusting it all the way up, then while it is running, adjust it down until there is some resistance. The beater brush should just barely scrape the top of your carpet.

My hoover spin scrub has no suction wont pick up water why?


No suction means somewhere in the intake side of the system you have either a blockage or an air leak.

1) adjust the belt, see for broken or worn, and replace
2)see for brushroller obstruction, and clean it and repair

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.

How do we fix roller brush on dyson dc14 full gear?


Have you also checked that the brush control knob is set to "carpet"? The brush will not spin in "bare floor" mode. (Sorry if this seems too obvious to mention, but I see lots of Dysons where incorrect setting of that knob is the only problem.) Failing that, you almost certainly need a new drive belt.

My brushes wont turn once the vacum is on the carpet.


If they are turning when they're off the carpet, then you have the brush height setting set too low. There should be a dial somewhere near the brushes, some say things like "high" to "low" or "high pile" to "low pile." Turn it one notch towards high/up and try it again, and keep turning one notch and trying until the brushes turn. You want them as close to the carpet as you can get them without them stopping. If this doesn't fix it, you have to be more specific as to whats going on.
