If you connected all the wires the correct way to the plug then you could have a short in the wiring in the hoover. Get an engineer to check it out.

The rubber drive belt keeps snapping. On inspection the metal shaft it rotates round seems to be rough/pitted. Is this normal?


It is not normal for a shaft to be rough & pitted. For safety reasons, I would suggest taking it to a repair shop and ask them if they can "dress" the shaft for you. Where I work on weekends, we do that all the time for repairs, and that will clean up the shaft for you. Now when you say you are putting a compatible belt on it, are you sure that it is compatible for your model? There are several different Hoover models out there and some of them have similar belts but they can be different sizes. Hope this helps!

Why are the brushes not spinning?


Hi Liz, if your brushes are still in good shape and do not need replacing then I would see if something else isn't broken or busted. You can always check for an obstruction in the brushes or remove the brush assembly & then reseat the brush assembly. Before doing so you should remove both Tanks from your Hoover. Then there are two buttons on top of the Nozzle Assembly that holds the brushes. You will need to release these two buttons on top, then tilt the handle of the unit backwards and this should let the brush assemble fall out of place. Inspect the brush assembly for any obstruction and even check to see if all the brushes still spin okay. If all looks good then align the post on top of the brush assembly with the hole on the bottom of the nozzle assembly and then snap the brush assembly back into place. I know this might sound crazy but did you first check to make sure that you did not have the switch set to "Wet\Dry Pickup." This will stop the brushes from turning as the switch needs to be in the other position to turn.

How do you replace Hoover Handle Release Pedal on


The handle pedal is snapped in to the base, where it pivots.
The pedal needs to be pried away fron the base, exposing the pivot pin to release it for removal. On your model, you will likelly have to remove the lower handle from the base (where it pivots) to get room to release and replace the pedal.

Hello,
You didn't say what the model number is, so, I will give you a link to a website that has instructions with pictures on how to change the belt. Once on this site, you will see two links for belt replacement. Click the one that is closest to your model.

take it to a friends house and plug it in if it does the same thing then the problem is in the vacuum cleaner.check your cord and see if there are anny cuts in it.you can open the breaker box then plug in the vacuum and watch the breaker box.you might see a spark and narrow down the problem.
