    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

My 2 year old Dyson roller head keeps sticking and won't turn unless I bang it several times. Can the roller be worn and needs replacing?


Hello, this is Ava with Think Crucial.

There are a number of reasons why your brush roller has stopped moving. General maintenance to your vacuum is crucial and will help it work at peak performance.

First things first lets focus on the brush roller. Unplug the vacuum and turn it on its side. Look for any noticeable clumps of debris or hair strands that may be caught in the brush roller. Remove these obstructions, probably best to do so with a scissor if it's hair or long pieces of carpet fibers. After removing the debris try manually rotating the brush roller to uncover other hidden clogs. Another thing to take note of is the condition of the bristles on the roll itself. Are they loose or worn down? These are signs that your brush roller is in need of replacing.

While checking out your brush roll you might as well take a look at your vacuums belt. Your belt should be replaced about every three months. After regular usage, the belt will stretch out, lessening the tension on the brush roller. Lesser tension diminishes the brush roller's turn rate and speed. If the belt feels loose then it certainly is affecting your vacuums suction as well as your brush roll not moving at all.

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.

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.
