    You are right about the loose belt. BUT we replaced it with the correct belt size and it is still loose - Hoover Windtunnel. I always was happy with my hoover vacuums, but this one has given me problems since I bought it! Need to find a better vacuume!

LOOSE BELT. THE BELT IS STILL LOOSE EVEN AFTER REPLACING

I would advise you to ALWAYS to FIRST UNPLUG YOUR VACUUM before beginning any service procedure.
The reason it seems like the belt is too big is probable correct, you may have the wrong size belt for your vacuum, use genuine belts – your particular model is a self propelled model and takes two (2) belts and they should stretch on very tightly and snug and it is smart to use the genuine belt package for the model that you have and we Recommended the belt change for flat belt(s) are 4 to 6 months for better cleaning
They should be tight on the belt pulleys in order to do the best cleaning – use genuine belts

No power in the brush


You may have either excess friction in a bearing or a slipping belt. Unplug the vacuum cleaner, remove the bottom plate, try turning the motor pulley by hand. If it is very hard to turn, remove the belt, then check the brush bearings and the motor bearings to see where the gum-up is. If it turns normally, try turning the motor pulley with one hand while holding the brush with the other to see if there is any slip in the belt or in the brush pulley. If the belt is loose, first check for loose screws or broken motor mounting posts. If those are all good, and the motor is as far back as the screw mounts let it go, the belt is probably stretched and should be replaced.

My belt is burning do I need anew belt and just align and clean brush. Motor sounds ok


Belts start burning because they've become too worn and loose to keep a good grip on the brush and motor shaft. You do need a new one. When replacing, ensure it's in the correct position by rotating the brush a few times. Make sure you've got the correct amount of tension on it. Too loose and the belt will slip and burn out again. Too tight may cause breakage as well as excessive stress on the motor.
It's often best to allow even a simple fix to be done by a service tech.

The brush on my vaccum stopped rotating, we replaced the belt thinking that could be the problem. It seems that the belt is working fine and the brush will not rotate even manually- what can I do to get it...


Remove the brush from the machine and clean as best you can. At each end of the brush there is a plastic clip that holds it into the vacuum. Add some WD40 between the clip and the brush and turn the clip around the brush until it moves freely. Do this for both ends. Reassemble making sure the belt is properly installed.

Hi, The belt of our Dirt devil bagless vaccum broke and we got new belt and replaced it. Even after replacing the belt, the brush is not rotating. Any suggestions please ?


Did you check to see that the beater brush, the brush that the belt drives, is free of debris and moves freely? When they bind up they can cause the belt to break. Remove the beater brush just as you do when changing the belt and clean as best you can. There are retainer clips at each end of the brush, add some WD40 between the clips and the beater brush and turn by hand to free it up. Reassemble making sure the belt is on in the proper manner so that the brush will turn in the correct direction. If you find this solution helpful, I would appreciate a Thumbs Up from you!
Thank you. Paul

I replaced the belt in our Eureka Boss Smart Vac, it still seems loose, it uses a type R belt. The beater belt still doesn't seem to turn properly and seems that it doesn't pick up very well when I use it...


Check to see that the beater brush is not frozen up. Pull the brush and clean it, spraying some WD40 on each end piece that holds the brush in place. Also be sure the belt is properly installed so that the brush turns in the correct direction. If the brush is not turning or not turning in the correct direction, it will not beat the dirt from the carpet so that it can be picked up by the vacuum's suction.

Hoover WindTunnel Self-Propelled V Belt


when you released the end to slide the new belt on it allows the tension roller to slide into the wrong position. Remove the top so that you can see the roller, at the left side of the roller mechanism there is a screw, loosen it enough to allow the roller to return to the correct position.
good luck

My Hoover Windtunel's agitator is not spinning, the v belt is new but seems loose somehow. HelP!!!


change the other belt as well even if it isnt broken, the v belt will look loose but it isnt there is a tension pulley that comes down on it when the handle is released. if that doenst do it the tension pulley itself could be broken. also check the rug floor knob if its over even a little bit it could stop the brush from turning.
