Take the screws out from the plate covering the brush roll, look for maybe 2 screws from the bottom to take out, then turn vac over, remove the Hoover emblem and remove the screw there, now the top will come off and you can get to the belt and brushroll. Check around your local repair shops for a cogged belt for the Savvy. I would think someone would stock it. Alot of Sew and Vacuum stores also service and have parts.

The brush on my Electrolux Versatility will not spin. You can spin it by hand, but the motor will not spin it.


Hello, W/D here.
Since the brush will not spin, but the motor works, either the belt has come off of the motor shaft, the belt is worn past it's useful life, or the beater bar has seized.
1. Turn off the power (unplug).
2. Remove the bottom plate. With the plate off, use your finger to test the tension of the belt. It should be tight, and roll when you roll the beater bar by hand.
3. Remove the beater bar and belt. Inspect the beater bar, particularly by the bearings. Remove any twine, hair, etc.
4. Inspect the belt for abnormal wear. If there is any significant wear in the belt, replace it.
5. Reassembly is in the reverse order. Place the belt on the beater bar. While holding the beater bar close to it's position, place the belt on the motor shaft. Rotate the beater bar bearings to their proper position and install the beater bar. Replace the cover plate.

Best regards, --W/D--

Beater bar not turning, but belt is not broken.


Remove the beater bar to remove the belt, then put the bar back into the sweeper. Check to see if it is bound up--usually the end bearings are packed with debris that prevents movement. Remove the bar again, and remove the bearings from the ends. Clean both the bar pins and the bearing blocks. Lightly oil the bearing blocks with 3-1 or similar light oil. Assemble the bar again and check movement. If ok, reinstall the belt and check sweeping action--if the bar stalls, replace the belt. Hope this helps!

Beater bar is not turning... but vacuum is sucking fine.


Hello. Usually when the beater bar is not turning it is due to the belt breaking. The fix is to get a new belt and install it. Be sure to use a Eureka belt to get the best results.

Yes, you need to replace the belt. You should actually change this belt every year. Here is a link to the belt you need and the manual which has instructions:

The brushes will not turn. It appears that the


Hi, W/D here. Easy fix!
Flip the machine over, beater bar side up. The base plate has to come off; it is held on with either screws or clips or a combination of both. Once the base plate is off, you'll need to carefully remove the beater bar, paying close attention as to how the end pieces come out with the beater bar from the vacuum frame. They have to mate back up in the same way they come out. Also note where the belt will ride on the beater bar. While you have it torn down this far, clean the suction cavity as vacuums usually plug up in this area, and remove any hair, ribbons, thread and the like that has gotten wound around the beater bar. Slip your belt over the motor shaft and then slip the beater bar into the belt. It'll feel like you need another pair of hands, but it can be done. Slip the beater bar and sockets back into the vacuum frame, and look again to make sure that the ends are seated properly. Test your work by revolving the belt a bit by hand, feeling for the resistance of the belt and smooth operation. Reinstall the base plate. That ought'a 'bout do it!
Best regards, --W/D--

How do I change the belt on the motor?


Hi. This is easily done. Flip the vacuum over, beater bar up. With the machine unplugged, locate the screws or tabs that hold the base plate on, surrounding the beater bar. Remove the plate. The beater bar is held in place by fitting into sockets that then fit into the vacuum frame, so be careful in removing the beater bar. Pay close attention to the sockets, so you can get the bar assembly back in easily. Replace the belt. When you fit it over the motor shaft, you'll have to slip the belt onto the beater bar, and fit the bar into the frame at the same time. Reinstall the plate, and test your work by revolving the beater brush a bit by hand......If you're satisfied, you should be good to go!

My beater bar on my Dyson just quit going round.


Change the belt because it sounds like the belt has snapped if its not turning around. Easy to do if you flip the machine over with the beater bar looking upwards. Locate the three/two screw heads and undo with a coin. When the roller section is revealed by taking off the floor head you should replace the belt with a new one and be careful putting the beater bar in the right way on both ends. The belt will be tight brand new so expect some tension in it.
If this works for you please rate Fixya! Thanks.

Belt is hot to touch


If the belt is hot or you smell it burning then chances are it has stretched a little and is slipping on either the motor shaft or beater bar shaft. If you are sure the beater bar is not restricted from turning then I would just replace it. Try this.. With the power cord disconnected, open the vac head to gain access to the beater brush and belt.. then remove the belt.. place the beater bar back into its holder and see if it easily turns by hand.. if it is free to turn..then plug the vac in and turn it on for a few seconds.. you will see and hear the motor come on but you should NOT smell anything burning at that time. If you do.. you may have another issue with the motor or power cord or both.. if you don't smell anything burning, then disconnect the power and just replace the belt.... Good luck.

I have a Hoover Savvy Bagless Upright. The beater bar does not turn. It does not appear to be the belt.


The Savvy has a brush roll motor, whcih could be bad. There also is a circuit board near the brush roll motor, a circuit board underneath the tool holder, and the switch asm. in the handle. Any of which could be the cause of the brush roll not turning. Just needs to be checked to find what is causing the problem.
