First off you should contact a warranty repair shop for your product, second flat belts will only last for a few months then they will stretch until they won't drive the brush roll under load. Belts uauslly are not covered under warranty, consult your owner manual to see if it is. If I knew what model of Hoover you have, maybe I can tell you how to replace it.

Beater bar doesnt revolve


Hi, it's Allie from Crucial Vacuum!

There are a few potential solutions you should try. Start by checking your unit's brushroll and clear it of any tangled hair strands or debris that my be blocking the airway. You can carefully use a pair of scissors to do cut and remove anything that is tangled and may prevent the roller from running.

Your unit's brushroll is connected to the motor by belts. Over time, the belt's wear down and stretch out losing the grip and tension that turn the roller. Ideally, belts should be replaced every 3 to 6 months.

Follow by checking the internal hose for any blockages.

If the roller brush is still not working, the problem could be caused by a lack of suction. Washable filters should be washed frequently after every 1 or 2 uses or at least once a month, and replaced every 3 to 6 months for optimal performance. Non-washable filters, should be also replaced every 3 to 6 months to keep your unit running properly.

Why is the new belt on my dirt devil featherlite repeatedly slipping off? Everything else on it works fine and the b elt is the correct size.


Hello! There is no other part that goes on the motor shaft after the belt is put on. The tension of the belt keeps the belt from slipping off. If you have a brand new belt that keeps slipping off you may not have the correct belt for the vacuum. Be sure you replace with a genuine Dirt Devil belt and the specified belt style for your particular unit. Hope this helps! If you still need assistance feel free to reach out to us here on Fixya, Facebook.com/dirtdevil, or Twitter @DirtDevil.

My Hoover makes louder noise when the brushroll is on. I just cleaned but no result.


What kind of Hoover is this? There are a few things that will cause excessive noise and vibration such as a worn belt, the wrong belt, damaged end caps, damaged brush roll housing and worn bearings. Inspect the brush roll area. Remove the belt, if you have a spare, check the size. If it's more than 6 months old, replace the belt. Spin the brush roll in the housing, does it spin free or hesitate or not turn at all? If it spins with effort there could be debris under the end caps; if one end cap will not turn there is enough debris to cause the end cap to internally melt to the roller. If you cannot turn the brush roll by hand, replacement is your best solution. You should also inspect the housing where the roller spins, specifically where the end caps sit; look for damage to the slots in the plastic, it the roller will not sit snug this could cause enough vibration to make the sound you're hearing.

Ms. Williamson-
It seem the your micro switch is broken. This is the switch that tells the vacuum that it is upright and that the roller motor should be turned off. if you have only had the vacuum for a few months then i would take it in to a Bissell Authorized Dealer. every vacuum has at least a 1 year warranty. so it should still be covered under warranty, if you have you proof of purchase that would be the best!
I suggest going to Bissell.com and plugging your address to there store service locator. So that way you can get this problem taken care of and that you dont burn your carpet again and ruin your roller brush and belt.
Have a great day!

The bristles aren't rotating. Is there an easy solution to this?


The belt probably broke. Simply purchase another belt and replace. These belts are made for much stress, and if you've had the vacuum for even a month, they can easily break.
It may also have slipped off the motor shaft, causing the brush to spin freely.

My Eureka Boss vacuum belt keeps breaking


I have been searching the machine for something which could be rubbing against the belt to cause it to fray and break as often as it does. So far, I haven't found anything. I have heard that the belts, called ribbon belts, are terrible! I find that the belts break faster when I use the hose. I haven't found a way to make a belt last longer.

I have a hoover windtunnel upright vacuum bought it a few months ago and now the brush spinning stopped working.


You probably have a broken belt, or the belt came off. The Self Propel Windtunnel has an issue with the pulley that tightens the V-belt in place getting stuck and needs to be taken apart and released, but most likely its just the belt. They should be replaced every 6 months or so, and the part number is usually on the serial tag of the machine.

Belts


It is the flat belt that gets stretched and should be replaced at least every 6 months. The V belt wears down so it won't it right in the brush roll V. Maybe the belt tensioner wheel has a problem, sometimes they get hook up and won't engage the V belt. Check the brush roll also, if where the V belt rides in is covered up with belt, replace it. There is no adjustment, doesn't need it if everything is working the way it should.

Is the belts suppose to be tight on the roller when you’re vacuuming or not

Hello,
I would advise you to ALWAYS to FIRST UNPLUG YOUR VACUUM before beginning any service procedure.
In answer to your question, the belt is supposed to be tight to give you the best cleaning for removing dirt from your carpet. A suggested belt change for most all vacuums is 4 to 6 months and to store the belts in a Ziploc bag in the refrigerator to keep them fresh. If the belt is loose, once the brushroll hits the carpet, all the belt would do is spin and burn. Thank you for your question.
Thanks, Don – The Vac Man
