Question about Vacuums

1 Answer

THis is not a self-propelled vacuum. The problem is that the brushes are no longer rotating on their own. They only 'brush and lift carpet' when I pull backward. I have ahd the vacuum for about 1 year. what do you think is the problem?

Sounds like you need to take the brushes off the unit and clean the end pieces that the brushes rotate around. Not uncommon that they get dirty and stop rotating. Clean all debris and add a little WD40 on the end of the bush rods that the brush spins around. Make sure the belt is on properly.

My Shark rotator is very hard to push at times, easy at other times. What makes it hard to push and how do I fix it?


Does it have a "brushes" lowering/higher switch?
Normally due to brushes being too low in particular on deep pile carpets??
check the actual fixings for the rotating brushes are ok and the brush not simply need "clicking" back into place?

Why does the brush continue to rotate on bare floor setting as well as using hose attachments?


Hello! The brush roll shut-off feature is on select models. Your vacuum may or may not have this feature. If it does not, the brushes will continue to rotate while hose is removed or in use and at all times while cleaner is on. The vacuum must be in the upright position to lift rotation brush off the carpet when cleaning above the floor. Be sure the vacuum does not tilt forward when doing above floor cleaning. Hope this was helpful!

U6485-900 WindTunnel Self-Propelled I changed the belts but there is not enough tension on the brush drive belt to get it to rotate


I had the exact same problem with my Hoover U6485-900 Anniversary upright, self propelled, vacuum. It would move backwards and forwards, had good vacuum, but wouldn't pick up much because the brush/roller was not turning very well. I replaced the main drive belt (38528035) and it now works great. The old belt had stretched and was slipping under load. Thanks for the great suggestions.

Move the carpet height control switch to a higher position if the vacuum is difficult to push. If the setting is too low for the carpet being cleaned, the brushes press against the floor preventing the vacuum from moving easily.Set to a medium-high height setting then check.Slide the "Self-Propel" button to the "ON" position if the cleaner does not self-propel. -----------
The self-propel feature operates only when the cleaner switch and the self propel button are both ON. ---------- Try this settings and check.This should help.Thanks.Helpmech.

Hoover U6634-900 self propelled, brush belt keeps coming off.


unfourtunatly it could be the height of your carpet also using on area rugs could cause it to do that too. check the brush roll and make sure it is spinning freely.

Edge of carpet went into carpet; was removed, but now all rollers on the unerside don't function.


You didn;'t say what the problem is, but I assume that the brush roll is not turning. Take of the cover over the brush roll, then you can get to the brush roll and the belt. The belt probably came off or broke. Best to replace the belt.

Kenmore direct drive will no longer self-propell


There may also be a reset button. If the brushes get stuck the unit can shut off power to the brushes to keep a total melt down from occurring. The reset button should return power in these types of vacuums.
