Question about Hoover Tempo Widepath Upright Vacuum - Blue

1 Answer

Brush is not engaging when vacuuming. If lifted

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.

Roller brush does not engage


. Turn unit on the side and inspect brush assembly for dirt, hair, etc. , also check the condition of drive belt , be sure that it is engaged with brush roller and turning freely. Also check the option of the'suction release' valve near handle which may free brush movement. good luck. a1fe9acb-d948-4a5d-a15d-619a901ba149.jpg 72bf93b5-160b-4ddd-8f56-3515fb5b8a7e.jpg 72bf93b5-160b-4ddd-8f56-3515fb5b8a7e.jpg

No power to brushes no result when brush switch activated


If you hear the brush moter running then the belt driving the roller has probably broken. It can be easily replaced by removing the brush plate underneath and pulling the roller out. Replacement belts are available on-line or may be available in hardware stores.Fit the new belt over the steel motor spindle first, then place the belt over the roller and insert the roller.
The belt will break if the roller gets jammed, so buy 2 belts and keep one as a spare.

Beater bar belt install


  • 1

    Unplug the vacuum cleaner and turn it upside down, flat on the floor, with the roller brush facing up.

  • 2

    Remove the the bottom cover plate from the vacuum by prying it off gently with a screwdriver blade. Set aside the cover plate.

  • 3

    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.

  • 4

    Remove the roller brush by lifting both ends from the grooved slots in the housing of the vacuum cleaner.

  • 5

    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.

  • 6

    Slip the replacement belt over the roller brush and seat the belt in the groove in the center of the roller.

  • 7

    Slide the roller brush back into the grooved mounts on either side of the housing and snap into place.

  • 8

    Pull back on the new belt and slip the loop over the pulley attached to the vacuum motor.

  • 9

    Replace the bottom cover by snapping it back on the housing until it clicks into place.

    Bisell 3750 bagless makes a burning rubber smell after about two minutes


    Hi,
    The first place to look is the brush roller for hair or thread binding it. Put the machine on it's side and look at the underneath side towards the front. Th brush roller will be there. Take the cover off to expose the roller and see if there is something wound around it.
    Good Luck,

    Roller brush will not rotate. Brush motor and associated shaft are spinning. Belt has been replaced. Appears that the Brush Bar is frozen..... Is there a bearing in the roller brush that is frozen? ...


    More than likely there is gunk underneath the endcaps. In the small airdriven attachment those end caps come off. It's likely true of the beater brush underneath too.

    Electrolux vacuum making a clicking sound when the brush is engaged


    Check that there is nothing lodged between the roller brush and the main dirt channel. You may have to take off the sole plate by either locating the cross head screws underneath or if the hood pops off the top - some Electrolux models have screws now located on the top. Once the roller brush is open to your eyes, look at the drive belt and check its condition - it may be on its way out and needs replacing OR the brush roller has clogged up OR the caps which hold the roller brush in both ends of the roller are loose and need a slight tap to lock them back in.

    Dyson DC07 Vaccum - brush will not turn


    Hi.

    Your Dyson has A clutch unit this engages the brush roller when you pull the handle back to vacuum.

    Check the clutch control knob which is at the bottom left side of machine looking from the front.
    It should rotate to drive position when handle is pulled back.

    If it doesnt turn the knob by hand to drive & try the machine.

    If you still have no brush rotation after doing all this then UNPLUG machine from mains supply.
    Now lay machine on its side & remove the sole plate, This is the cover over the brush roller.
    Turn the 3 plastic screws to unlock postition & lift sole plate off.

    Now try to yurn brush roller using your hand. It should turn freely if it is difficult to turn look for any foriegn object obstructing the roller.

    If no obstruction found then remove the brush roller from the machine & check the bearings in the ends of the brush roller one or both may be siezed up if they are then new brush roller will solve the problem.

    If bearings are good then either the clutch is faulty or the second belt which goes clutch to motor has snapped & will need replacing.

    It is difficult to fully explain the clutch removing procedure,
    But there are service manuals available for these repairs at this site
