Brush Repair Question

I have owned my Hoover for 8 years. The brush has been replaced several times and the one I have now is in good condition. I also replace the belt routinely and have a brand new one now. However, the vacuum is very loud and creates a terrible smell when I run it. I believe this is because over time the slot where the brush goes in has been stipped, and it just keeps getting worse.

Is this even worth taking in for repair? I don't see any removable part that can be replaced to fix the problem. Is 8 years a good life for this vacuum, or should I expect more?

    Here's the thing - the brush sits directly in the base of the vacuum. I don't see any removable tray.



    Thank you so much for the advice.

Could be that is the case if it is a plastic smell, and the brush roll is loud when turning. Depending on which model you have, either have to replace the nozzle or if the brush roll sits in a removeable tray, you can replace it. If you take it in for service, it will probably run $80+ parts and labor.

Hoover F5915-900 brushes will not rotate


The motor rotates the bar. My guess would be that the rubber belt that goes from the motor to the belt has fallen off the bar , broke, or the bar is not seated properly. GOOD LUCK FRIEND.

Hoover 8+spin1600 forever banging when spinning16


Hi! If your unit is noisy while the brushes are spinning this can mean that your brushes are worn or damaged. Try removing the brushes by pushing the two brush release buttons at the same time. Turn the cleaner on and see if the noise persists. If the noise stops with the brushes removed, you will need to replace your brushes. I have included a link below where you may go to purchase a replacement brush roll if needed. Hope this helps!

Off and on brush want work


Start by replacing the belts. They should be replaced at least twice per year for proper cleaning. The flat belt will stretch and lose elasticity and the "v" belt wears on the inside grooves. If the smaller narrow inside part of the belt is less than 1/8" it has worn and needs replaced.

I cant get my hoover vaccum brush to spin


First be sure the switch/circuit breaker on top of the nozzle is on. The brush also will not turn unless the handle is released and tilted back. This model of Hoover has a gear drive to turn the brushes. This was VERY prone to problems, and Hoover discontinued making replacement parts for it several years ago.

Hoover Widepath Tempo - belt slips off when we start it. Can you help?


Perhaps the belt is stretched. Replace it with Hoover belt # 38528-033. Remove the rug plate on the bottom ( 4 screws ), and remove the brushroll. Place the belt around the motor shaft first, then position it around the brush, and push the brush back into the housing. Expect resistance from the belt, as it must be stretched several inches. After the brush is in place, turn it with your fingers to be sure the belt is centered, and not pinched between the brush and the housing. After replacing the bottom plate the vacuum should be ready to use.

Hoover Z 700 Model U9145-900


Try going to hoover.com and either email them or there is a number that you can call, this is hoover direct, so someone there should be able to help you. Have your model and serial numbers and purchase date handy in case they ask. It also has a 2 year warranty on it. So if you bought it in the fall of 2006, then you have until the fall of 2008. I would take it to an warranty servicer and get it repaired before the warranty runs out.

Hoover Vacuum correction


I don't know what is your experience with wire's soldering, but you should remove the insulation from the damaged wire and solder the disconnected edges. Then wrap an insulation band on the repaired wire first and then on all the other wires. Be aware power cable is disconnected !!!! If you can't do it by yourself - repair cost for it should be very cheap. Good luck !!
