Question about Hoover Vacuums

Open Question

My hoover S3765 cannister vac has a problem with the vacuum beater brush. It spins on hard surface floors but when it's on carpet it stops. If I lift up the vacuum head while I vacuum the brush spins. I checked the belt and it's in good shape. What could the problem be?

I've had my Hoover S3755 for about 2 years and loved it, at least until the last couple of months when the "belt slipping off" problem started. I changed the belt and the vacuum would work for a little while then the belt would come off again. I put on a new belt again and within minutes the belt had slipped off. I took it to my local vacuum repair about 4:00 in the afternoon. By 4:45 I got a call from the repairman that he'd fixed my vacuum! What did he do? He put a different belt on it. He put a Rainbow belt on my Hoover that's thicker and doesn't have as much "give" as the Hoover belt. It's also a little bit wider than the Hoover belt. Now when the brush slows or stops at a carpet edge the belt doesn't slide off.

SOURCE: The brush turns when the vacuum is lifted up, when

Hi there,
Over time your belt stretches between 10% & 25% and once it stretches like this it will only run ok when there is no resistance. As soon as you put the belt under load (ie carpet) there is not enough tension to keep the brush turning. What you need to do is fit a new belt and all will be good again.
If you need parts I would recommend nelson vacuums or vacuumspot if you are in Australia.
If this has been a helpful answer for you please take a moment to give me a comment or a testimonial.
Happy Vacuuming :)

I have a brand new hoover canister s3755 and the beater brush will not turn on the carpet it spins fine as soon as you lift it slightly off of the floor, I can't imagine it is the belt as the mac


It's commonly the belt when they're new. More explained here:

Call Hoover and complain, they'll likely send you a new one. The service centers will not be able to give you a belt under warranty as it is a "wear" part.

Sebo k3 won't vac on carpet...only hard floor


Do you mean the beater bar stops turning and then it doesn't vacuum?
Or it shuts off when you jam it full of carpet? Read the below manual:

Jim, To put tension on the brush, tilt machine forward when upright, move carpet selector knob to carpet. then turn vac on. Brush will only spin when vac is tilted back to operate. brush stops when upright and on to use hand tools so the er is no danger to carpet or persons with moving roller.

Hoover makes terrible screaching sound when using upright.


It's most likely the bushings/bearings in the beater bar (roller). The beater bar cover is fairly easy to remove -- take it off and investigate. Could be that the roller only needs lubricating on the ends. Also, check the belt to see if it's intact or damaged.

Clean area thoroughly.

If this is not the problem, please, let me know.

Hoover Tempo Widepath Blows Dirt Out Back on Hard Surfaces


lots of times switching to hard surface floors you need to slow down because the air flow that does the actual picking up of the dirt can't work as fast as the spinning brush so the brush is throwing the dirt out the back before the suction can pick it up. Try slowing down

This happens when the filter on the inside of the lid for the dirty water tank is pushed all of the way up. You need to leave a 1/4 in. gap from the top to the top of the filter.
