Question about Hoover Tempo Widepath Upright Vacuum - Blue
Brush is not engaging when vacuuming. If lifted slightly then will vacuum. The rollers underneath are collapsing and not holding the bottom up enough for the brush to engage. Part underneath that connects to rollers is not touching the carpet height regulator.

Therre are usually aprings that hold the brush in position or a spacer thaqt turns when you adjust the height. turn the vacuum over and remove the plate covering verything. make sure your unplugged first. it usually takes about 5-6 phillips head screws. look for loose ,broken or missing parts. make the the roller is taken out and is carefully cleaned of all hair etc esp that just at the edge of the roller where it meets the monting devices. the hair and debris often gets stuck there and once removed works much better. also make sure the belt is not stretched and is slipping on the brush. if it is replace it. good luck.carefully reassemle the parts you removed being very aware of what postiotn everything was in when you took it apart. make sure everything has proper clearance and then test your vacuum. if you find broken or missing parts replace them first ofcoarse.

Unplug the vacuum cleaner and turn it upside down, flat on the floor, with the roller brush facing up.
Remove the the bottom cover plate from the vacuum by prying it off gently with a screwdriver blade. Set aside the cover plate.
If the old belt is broke, remove it by pulling the belt from underneath the roller bush. If the belt is not broken but simply worn out, and is still attached, cut it off with scissors.
Remove the roller brush by lifting both ends from the grooved slots in the housing of the vacuum cleaner.
Cut away hair, thread, string and other debris wound around the roller, using the scissors. Tangles on the roller brush are a common reason for belt wear and breakdowns due to the added weight and stress on the roller brush.
Slip the replacement belt over the roller brush and seat the belt in the groove in the center of the roller.
Slide the roller brush back into the grooved mounts on either side of the housing and snap into place.
Pull back on the new belt and slip the loop over the pulley attached to the vacuum motor.
Replace the bottom cover by snapping it back on the housing until it clicks into place.
