Question about Hoover U5753-900 WindTunnel Bagless Upright Vacuum
BRUSH ROLLER QUITS SPINNING WHEN IT TOUCHES CARPET. BELT IS NOT BROKEN.
SWEEPER SEEMS TO BE ONLY PICKING UP DUST AND BLOWING IT INTO THE AIR.
You need to replace the brush and also the vaccum needs cleaning internally as it sounds like there might be blockage around the motor

Normally when a brushroll slows down or stops when it touches the carpet means the belt is stretched and is slipping. A belt will be stretched and inch or so within a few months after the belt has been installed. Belt manufacturers recommend replacing most vacuum belts every three months. I recommend to my clients they have their belts replaced at least once a year. Be sure to clean all the hair and debris from the brushroll, especially from around the endcaps. If the endcaps will come off remove them to clean out hair and debris. If too much hair gets wrapped around the bushings or bearings it causes a lot of friction and heat and can damage the bearings, bushings and endcaps of the brushroll. Sometimes the heat will actually melt the nozzle housing of the vacuum cleaner. Take a little time once a month or so to flip your vacuum over and clean it out and your vacuum will work much better and last much longer without costly repairs. Gary (That Vac Guy)
