Check the belt. Make sure it's attached properly. Replace if broken or worn.

Belt no longer turns the brush


JKGonzo:
You'll need to open the vacuum head and remove the beater bar. Clean up the bearings at each end of the beater bar and reassemble the head.

The brush bar isn't going round ?


your problem seems to be the belt has snapped. Underneath the the hover there is a rubber belt that connects around the brush bar and around the motor, this belt will be broken. They can purchased from any hoover shop for a couple of pounds.

Brush bar doesn't rotate.


Either the bearing in the rotating brush is bad and isn't allowing the brush to turn, or in the majority of cases, the belt is broken.

Ball makes a clicking sound and brush isn't turning


Check the brush. That could be the problem. Check the belt also. Your brush roller may need to be lubed or even replaced.Turn it over and wipe all the black residue off the bottom of it.------ Either the brush is getting clogged and blocked by dirt, hairs etc etc and that needs to be cleaned or the brush bar motor is got faulty and needs to be replaced.------- You can yourself replace this motor,m if its not running.------- To get instructions to disassemble the vacuum and replace the motor, click this link below :--- http://howtobyme.blogspot.com/2011/08/brush-not-turning-on-dyson-ball-dc24.html----------- This will-help.Thanks.Helpmech.

Where is the belt housed on the Hoover vacum cleaner model U5461-900? The belt number is 38528-033 but I can't find where the broken belt is to replace it.


Simply lay the machine down with the brush assembly facing upwards, and remove the four screws holding the bottom plate in place, and remove it. Put the new belt around the motor shaft, then around the brush assembly and push the brush back into place. Turn the brush with your fingers before replacing the bottom plate, to be sure the belt isn't caught between the brush and housing.

Brushes won't rotate on hoover steam vac. I have removed them and cleaned.


The brushes turn by the airflow from the vacuum suction turning a turbine motor to spin the brushes. First try to spin the brushes by hand. If they won't turn it usually means the brushes are clogged with hair and debris or need replaced or the turbine could be seized up. If the brushes won't spin reach under the brushes and push the little tabs and remove the brush block asssembly from the machine. If the brushes spin freely after you remove them from the machine then that means that most likely the turbine is seized and will need to be repaced. If the turbine is not seized you may simply just have a clogged filter screen. Most steam vacs have a red screen filter either on top or underneath the machine. On the top it is under a little clear plastic cover that you have to pry off before you can pull the screen out to clean it. If it's underneath you can pull it out and clean it.

Windtunnel dual v vacuum cleaner brushes do not rotate when the vacuum cleaner is turned on


when you turn this model on, the only way to have the brushes turn is to move the brush control switch to on and then tilt the handle back. if all of this is ok but they do ot spin then check to see if you can turn them by hand with the machine off and unplugged. check the lint filter underneath the unit. if you cannot turn the brushes by hand then your issue is most likely the turbine. requiring shop service.

Motor wont turn on.I checked the switch and I think it is working.motor turns on if a put direct power to it.`but it smokes at the brushes. can you help?


This sounds like either the belt isn`t on right or the brush is not slotted in the vacuum right remove the plastic or metal cover from the bottom and check by inspecting the belts ability to easly turn the brush rod check with your hands DO NOT turn vacuum on while plate cover is off it could fly off and cause injury.

It turns on but the spinner underneath wont work now


Turn the vacuum so the bottom is facing up..
Take out the scews in the plate that surounds the brush and take it off..
The belt should be firmly on the brush and the motor..
If the belt has come off the motor - pull out the side of the brush that the belt connects to.. Put the belt back on the motor post and the brush.. It might be a tad tough going back in because the belt should have a little tension..
Once the belt is on and brush in place - put plate back on..

Hope this helps ;o)

Brushes won't turn.


Make sure you check the selector for brushes on the top OFF/ON.

If it is "ON" you have a locked up turbine. This is caused by storing the machine in damp places generally. Or by leaving the tanks on while you store the machine.

The Brush driver turbine assembly is extremely easy to get to:
  1. remove the hood screws (6) from underneath.
  2. remove the hood.
  3. remove the 2 screws for the turbine on top and the 2 underneath. (it will be obvious which one is the brush driver)
  4. remove the single waterline connected to the assy.
  5. it should come off easily at this point.
You can either try to take the assy apart but generally once they're shot, they're garbage.
I suggest running out to your local Hoover Warranty parts center with the part to make sure you get the right one. Hoover makes running changes to these machines. Just because they have the same model number doesn't make 2 steamvacs the same, take the part. Reassemble in reverse order!

Best of Luck
