My hoover Savvy vacuum is no longer sucking up dirt- brush turns

My hoover Savvy vacuum is no longer sucking up the dust. The motor is not running when the handle is up, but the belt drive works when the handle is down. Is it the switch? something else? I am in S. america where I do not have any service

SOURCE: blows dust and dirt out of brush area

Did you make sure to cut all the strings, hair, etc. out of the brush attachment on the bottom? Look in the corners too to make sure none has gotten stuck on the sides that needs to be cut out.

SOURCE: Hoover WindTunnel Canister: Roller brush motor not turning

These motors have a fuse incorporated in the field winding and it sounds like that blew. These motors sometimes overheat at the front bearing and the bearing will melt into the plastic housing. This will cause the fuse to blow. It sounds like that's your problem. You can remove the motor by removing the three screws on the bottom of the powerhead and then check the front bearing for any bubbling or blistering in the plastic housing. The shaft of the motor should turn easily.

SOURCE: Brush will not turn and lights will not light

If its not the belt or agitator it could be that the motor burnt out (this is what might be wrong with mine because everything else seams to be fine when checked with a multimeter). The upper switch assy. is part #48663238 $27.49 @ searspartsdirect.com the lower switch in the foot assy. area (by belt) is part #91001026 $6.49. Sears also gives parts list with schematics.

My vacuum blows air instead
Posted by katweaver3 on May 04, 2008
My vacuum blows air instead of sucking air. I have a dirt devil swivel guide. I got something stuck in the brush spinner, got it out...but now the vacuum doesn’t **** stuff up anymore.


Hello,
I would advise you to ALWAYS to FIRST UNPLUG YOUR VACUUM before beginning any service procedure.
Normally if your vacuum has a round belt you may have your belt on backwards, please reverse the belt and the suction will return also you may have a clog in the tube leading up to the bag or dirt cup would be anther reason for the blowing instead of suction. This is not covered under the factory warranty. Feel free to contact your local vacuum dealer for questions.
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.

Brush won't turn and self propel doesn't work (by 2 users)
Posted by brucelk on May 24, 2008
I have replaced both the v-belt and the larger belt with Hoover brand belts and the brushes still don't turn properly and the self-propel function doesn't work. It seems that when I lower the handle all the way down toward the floor it works fine, but no one can vacuum this way. Is there an adjustment to belts to tighten them up? Otherwise I have to get it in to the only repair shop in town which is an hour's drive.X

1 Other User Has the Same Problem Comment by chartsell, posted on May 29, 2008 I have replaced both the belts as well. I have tightened the screws as someone else as suggested. The brush still will not turn unless you lower the handle almost to the ground. Hello,
I would advise you to ALWAYS to FIRST UNPLUG YOUR VACUUM before beginning any service procedure. Hoover U6437-900 / U6439-900 Windtunnel Vacuum. It is not so much the belts, the 2 belts are only part of the solution. The average belt change is every 4 to 6 months as a rule and to change them @ the same time. The Hoover Self-Propelled works on when the handle is lower to a comfortable position then the self-propelled drive may just need and adjustment. There is a self-propelled rod that controls the self-propelled feature and it either needs adjustment or replacement or the part that hold it may be broken but either one can be fixed. So feel free to contact your local vacuum cleaner dealer with questions. 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.

I had the same problem. It looks like the seal on the lid on the bottom of the cylinder has fallen out when it was emptied.

I put sellotape to seal the lid and it works fine.

Could be that the motor went bad, or one of the circuit boards is bad. The brush roll motor is the likely suspect.

Hoover savvy motor problem


The problem is the lower roller assembly circuit board fried. It happened with mine as well. I tried to order a new circuit board from Hoover, but they get it third party and don't want the liability. This is very frustrating. I'm waiting for them to call me back.

The brush roll motor is most likely what caused the problem to the circuit board. You would look at about $100 or so for the 2 parts.
