Remove the 2 lens caps where the headlights are.
Push and twist the two lights out, these are spring loaded.
There should be 2 screws, one under each headlight.

Once the screws are removed it should be easy to take the top cover off so that you can get to the brush.

Good luck.

Why did the brush roller stop spinning?


With the cleaner unplugged, turn the unit over and look inside the opening where the brush is located. Do you see the clogging of the brush with lots of hair? If so, you will need to disassemble it to remove the hair. In any case, you will probably need to take off the cover to see if there is an obstruction jamming the brush. Also, check to make sure that motor for the brush is getting power. If there is an electrical cable on the outside connecting the brush housing to the rest of the vacuum cleaner, check if it is disconnected. When you have the cleaner on, do the lights glow? Do you hear the motor running? Try the above and report back.

How to open to clean


Hello! The dirt cup, filter and brushes need to be cleaned to ensure continued cleaning effectiveness. Below are steps for cleaning your Hoover Slider.

Turn switch to OFF position.

1. Press button and slide latch towards outside of cleaner. Rotate dirt cup toward back of cleaner.

2. While holding dirt cup, grasp filter frame and lift out filter. Empty dirt cup after every use. Dirt cup can be cleaned with a damp cloth. Allow to dry thoroughly.

3. Pull middle section of filter out of filter frame. To remove debris from filter, tap it on a hard surface or brush it with a soft brush.

4. Remove lint, strings, etc. from the brush roll located on the underneath side of the nozzle.

5. Replace the brush roll when the brushes do not touch the edge of a card as it is moved across the opening on the bottom of the nozzle.
Further disassembly of the cleaner is not recommended. Hope this helps!

Hoover linx brush motor


Locate the dimple somewhere around the edge of the two components to be separated.
Put a sheet or drop-cloth down and work on that to prevent anything from being lost if it opens suddenly. (it should be fine).
Use a large flat head screwdriver to pry it open.

Look under the bottom. Locate the Grill section covering the brushes. This will tilt down when opened. Try either side to see which part flips open. When open, pull the brush toward you. It will pop out in your direction. Lift out the brush along with the Belt. The belt sits in a groove and it may be soft by now. Remove it. Get a new Belt at WalMart. Slip the new belt end up and around the motor pulley and the other end around the brush pulley. The belt will tend to be very tight and need your muscles. It wont brake, so use some strength to get a good connection. When the belt is on both the motor pulley and the brush pulley, push the brush back into the chamber and lock in place. Your done.

My Dyson in making a really awful noise.


You may want to open up the bottom where the floor brush is and check the condition of the belt and as to whether or not something is caught in the belt or beater brush. The owner's manual should provide directions on changing the belt. While you are changing the belt, give the beater brush a good cleaning and add some WD40 to the ends of the brush where the plastic holders are located.

How do u replace belt


Turn the machine over - locate the clamps that hold the cover on and open them. Fold the cover forward toward the front to expose the "belt alley". Lift the roller brush from its cradle. Place the new belt over the pulley on the brush and over the end of the motor. Put the brush back in the cradle. Replace the bottom and re-clamp the snaps.

You may want to clean the hair and string from the brush while you have it out.

Good luck

Electrolux vacuum making a clicking sound when the brush is engaged


Check that there is nothing lodged between the roller brush and the main dirt channel. You may have to take off the sole plate by either locating the cross head screws underneath or if the hood pops off the top - some Electrolux models have screws now located on the top. Once the roller brush is open to your eyes, look at the drive belt and check its condition - it may be on its way out and needs replacing OR the brush roller has clogged up OR the caps which hold the roller brush in both ends of the roller are loose and need a slight tap to lock them back in.

Dont forget to rate this solution. Ty

Vax turboBrush not such properly


Open up the brush to see if there any clogging. This can happen with turbo brushes, particularly on the turbine or on the belt that drives it (usually toothed) youll have to be slow and patient with these types of tools as they aren't always made with easy to locate parts. Also check the sides of the brush that no dirt has lodged between making the brush unmovable.
