Hoover carpet cleaner


The brushes have just stoped for no reason. I use it very often and have never had a problem. I called a repair man and he said it was a belt, then i called hoover and they said they dont have a belt. Im on a very fixed income so i cant aford to get someone to fix it. I took it apart and cleaned everything, and lubed what i knew would not hurt it. the spring was still in contact when i looked at it. what else could it be. and where would i look for it. it a hoover spin scrub.
thanks

    I have the same problem with the brushes not spinning on my Hoover model F7431-900. I have looked at everything possible, including replacing the turbine but the brushes still don't spin. Any idea what else might be wrong???

Take the brush block out, is the shaft that goes up into the turbine there, or is it broken off. If gone, then replace the brush block. If there, then probably the turbine isn't working, this is what drives the brushs. It may be just clogged up, you can remove the turbine, take it apart and clean it out real good and put it back together. If it works, then you are set, if not, then it will have to be replaced.

Brush bar not rotating. have cleared the head. suspect its the belt but cant get inside because the screws wont unscrew. could I need a complete new brush head . dyson is about 6 years old.


Hi there, it's Jack at Dyson.

DC25 doesn't have a traditional, user-replaceable belt. Instead, the belt is engineered to last the lifetime of the machine in normal use. The belt is protected by a sensor which shuts off the brush bar if something jams it. If the brush bar isn't currently rotating it's very unlikely to be related to the belt itself.

If you've been unable to reset the machine by removing any threads or hair from the brush bar and endcap, we'd appreciate the opportunity to take you through some further troubleshooting checks to pinpoint the cause of the issue. You can reach us by calling 0800 298 0298 (UK), 1-866-693-9766 (US), 1-877-397-6622 (CA) or 1800 239 766 (AU).

We'll look forward to speaking to you. If a repair or a replacement part is needed, we can also confirm if your DC25 is within the Dyson parts and labour guarantee period.

Please be aware that any remaining Dyson guarantee coverage on your machine could be void if you dismantle the cleaner head as you've described. For this reason we'd encourage you to get in touch directly for assistance rather than attempting a repair.

My roller brush doesn't spin anymore and the belt is still attached, what do I do?


DC07s have two drive belts that turn the brush bar - one connects the output of the motor to the clutch, the other connects the clutch to the brush bar.
You can check the latter simply by removing the sole plate and looking. Unfortunately the other belt is hidden under a plastic cover, so you cant see if it is okay or not without some dismantling. This cover is not easy to remove and requires a Torx driver to undo the securing screws.
If, after removing the cover, the other belt is okay, then you have a faulty clutch. New clutches are available on eBay reasonably cheaply, but again good tools and DIY skills are required.
Have a look at www.dysonmedic.com which has some excellent info on dismantling and repairing a DC07, but unless you have access to such tools, and feel confident to tackle it, it's probably time to call Dyson or a Vacuum repairer.

Brush won't turn but belt is not broken


DC07s have two belts - one connects the output of the motor to the clutch, the other connects the clutch to the brush bar.
I suspect the belt you are to refering to is the one from the clutch to the brush bar. Unfortuenately the other belt is hidden under a plastic cover, so you cant see if it is okay or not without some dismantling. This cover is not easy to remove and requires a Torx driver to under the securing screws.
If, after removing the cover, the other belt is okay, then you have a faulty clutch. New clutches are available on eBay2_bing.gif reasonably cheaply, but again good tools and DIY skills are required.

Generic problem for all Vacuums

Brush won't turn

Hello,
I would advise you to ALWAYS to FIRST UNPLUG YOUR VACUUM before beginning any service procedure. Without knowing the brand name and model #, the reason that your brush is not turning might be you may have a broken belt (always use genuine belts from the brand name manufacturer) and it needs changing, or the bearings in the brushroll are froze up and it would need new bearings or a genuine replacement brushroll. The belt change should be done every 4 to 6 months for the best cleaning, and to store the extra belts in a Ziploc bag in the refrigerator. The next time you request a question, please have a brand name and model # so I can give you more accurate information.

Thanks, Don the Vac Man
Go Ahead. Use Us.
