    is it a new belt and isn't stretched yet and might just require a little extra force to get it on?

    the belt isn't caught on something that it shouldn't be is it and it is the same belt as been getting used. from my experience vacuum belts take a lot of force to get on and it may just take that extra pull to get it on. Hope you get it fixed.

I love my floor mate which I bought last year. Now it is making a funny sound and has a weird burning smell. I was told to take it to a repair shop but before spending the money I want to find out if this...


It may be the belt. Sometime the motor spins but the belt is not spinning with it. This causes the belt to heat-up and burn/melt. The burned rubber maybe what you're smelling and sometime make funny noise and hard to push the vacuum.

The grren light isnt on and the brush isnt circulating.


Sounds like a stretched or broken belt.On the bottom there should be some screws so you can access the motor/ brush area. If the belt is not broken it may be stretched which will still render the brush from turning. Hope this helps, Chris

We had the same problem, and it turned out that the roller wheel height setting had broken, for no apparent reason, and was "floppy" so we had to lock it in to one setting with epoxy.

Limits utility, but it works. Sort of.

your belt is probably broken or worn. You can get replacement belts here:

The motor is sounding real loud lately like its straining to operate, any ideas?


It could be a worn belt. Sometimes worn belts can cause the vacuum to make funny noises. I have listed a link to the owners manual and a link to the belt you need.

With the DC14 in its upright position, and looking from the back, there is an access hatch just to the right and bottom of the dust canister. Remove this and check for any obstruction. With the hatch still removed, tilt the handle back (as if vacuuming a floor), and you should spot that the mechanism in to which the access hatch fits changes over from one hole to another. This is how suction is transfreered from the telescopic arm to the brush bar when the unit is taken out of the upright position.
With the handle tilted back, the hole you can see is one end of a flexible pipe that leads to the brush bar. Check for any blockage and/or foriegn objects. If there is no obvious problem, you'll need to check the other end of the pipe. You can do this by removing the toe plate on the bottom of the brush bar area. The plate is held by 3 or 4 half turn fasterners - a 5 pence piece is ideal for undoing these.

If still no joy, the only other thing it might be is that the brush bar isnt spinning - this isnt actually lack of suction, but without brush rotation any upright hoover is far less effieicnt at picking up bits from the floor. Brushes not spinning on a DC14 is quiet a difficult thing to fix on a DC14 as there are two separate rubber belts, one of which is hidden under a plastic cover. There is also a clutch mechanism between the belts that can cause problems some times.

How is the V-belt tension adjusted (Hoover Model U6439-900)or how do I know if the tension is correct? There seems to be a lot of "play" in the belt and I'm wondering if that is the reason the brush roll...


The V-Belt is not adjustable. There are two ways the belt has no tension: (1) when the handle is upright, a mechanical lever takes the drive tension off the belt, and (2) the brush roll lever setting you described. The upper handle would have to be in the floor cleaning position to check the belt, not in the storage position.

The motor is running, the roller brush spinning rubber smell


Sounds like the main suction pipe is blocked.
Unplug, and in good light - see if you can see any obstructions in the pipe from the prush area to the bag (in a bagless vacuum) or to the fan in a bag model.

The brushes on my kirby are not spinning. What could i do to fix this?


Sounds like a broken belt. Take it to service store or buy a belt and replace it yourself. It's actually more simple than you think. Good luck! Did you get a funny burning smell when the brushes stopped spinning?

Burning smell, vacuum wont turn on now


the front of the machine ( the peice that holds the brush roller ) and the bag unit are part of a safety system that will only let it turn on if both are locked firmly in place, after checking that examine the cord, look for any burn marks especially at the plug and where the cord clips into the retainer on the handle and if you can where it plugs into the machine but you will probably need a set of torx screwdrivers for that. if there was any funny noises before it shut off the kids could have damaged the motor, and just because the belt isnt broken it can still get burnt and make a bad smell change them ever six months to a year
