These machines don't have power drive. You may find it harder to push when the brushes aren't turning but there is no drive on this vacuum.

Is there a wrong way to attach the belt and the sweeper?? My Hoover Runabout is making a rubbing noise, like the sweeper is hitting something, and it's real hard to push.


take off the belt . clean any hair from brush roller make sure movement smooth . re position belt and move by hand to make sure roller is not skew , , rubber is riding sideways and causing friction .

Vacuum wont spin when on carpet but will spin if tilted off the carpet


Remove the bottom plate of the sweeper. Remove the sweeper brush roller and clean the end bearings of debris. Oil the bearings lightly with 3-1 oil or similar machine oil. Clean the motor shaft with alcohol as well as the brush drive area, and the inside of the drive belt. Test on a carpet for improvement--if still stopping, replace the rubber drive belt. Hope this helps!

I have to push the sweeper, there is no drive


Be sure your belt isn't slipping on the beater bar. Might be time to get a new belt or at least take off the beater bar and clean everything. Dust can cause it to slip

Fantom Sweeper Belt problem


Maybe it's stretched and is slipping causing friction and heat.
Try a new belt.

Dirt Devil M084600 Dynamite


If it is only 2 months old, then it is under warranty, take it in for warranty repair. There may be a circuit breaker on it, usually on the back at the bottom, it there is, push it to see if it has tripped.

Agitator stops when sweeper is pulled backward


If you have made no changes to the vacuum's setup and are using it on same carpet you have previously used it on with no problem, then the most likely cause is the agitator/beater bar's drive belt is worn or on some models may have a tension adjustment which is set too loosely. This can also be caused by having the vacuums height adjustment set to low for the carpet or flooring you are using it on, causing to much drag when the vacuum is pulled backwards for the agitator to overcome.

The vast majority of agitators turn in a forward direction, as if it would pull the vacuum forward, when you pull the vacuum backwards the drag is increased.

So...First check height adjustment (a no cost fix), then check out the tension adjustment (if present on you model, some engage when top of vacuum is tilted back after stepping on the release pedal) Lastly, consider changing belt especially if you have had the vacuum awhile or if it gets a fair amount of use or it you seem to need to use it on a low height setting all the time to vacuum up debris.

Hope this helps!
