    I have the same problem. I can not get my brushbar back in place after removing hair from the bar. The bar seems to be where it needs to be, but the bar will not rotate.

Brush not turning


Check to make sure belt has not snapped by dismantling the bottom of the head , or looking round the beater bar on either left of right hand far side, or failing that the make sure the beater bar brush is clear of hair or other particles. Hope this helps.

Red indicator light is red for roller


Sounds like your roller is jammed up with bits of thread and hair... get in there and really look at those ends... pull/cut but remove the bits of hair that's jamming it up.

How do you replace the belt on the pet power paw vacuum


1. Pry off adjustable clear cover with flathead screwdriver.
2. Unscrew 2 Philips screws holding power paw together.
3. Place tips of needle nose pliers into the two holes on each of the black round pieces on the ends of either end of the roller. Twist and the black pieces will release.
4. Remove roller, use needle nose pliers or awl to dig out any hair wrapped up in the roller or especially the ends of the roller at the metal pins.
5. Replace belt and put everything back together in the same order you took it apart.

Beater bar belt install


  • 1

    Unplug the vacuum cleaner and turn it upside down, flat on the floor, with the roller brush facing up.

  • 2

    Remove the the bottom cover plate from the vacuum by prying it off gently with a screwdriver blade. Set aside the cover plate.

  • 3

    If the old belt is broke, remove it by pulling the belt from underneath the roller bush. If the belt is not broken but simply worn out, and is still attached, cut it off with scissors.

  • 4

    Remove the roller brush by lifting both ends from the grooved slots in the housing of the vacuum cleaner.

  • 5

    Cut away hair, thread, string and other debris wound around the roller, using the scissors. Tangles on the roller brush are a common reason for belt wear and breakdowns due to the added weight and stress on the roller brush.

  • 6

    Slip the replacement belt over the roller brush and seat the belt in the groove in the center of the roller.

  • 7

    Slide the roller brush back into the grooved mounts on either side of the housing and snap into place.

  • 8

    Pull back on the new belt and slip the loop over the pulley attached to the vacuum motor.

  • 9

    Replace the bottom cover by snapping it back on the housing until it clicks into place.

    Hair getting stuck in the belt drive area causing beater to skip


    Hair,string, tinsel, etc. have always been problems for rollers and belts. You will have to remove the hair. It can often get stuck at the ends of the rollers also and keep the roller from turning. I usually remove the roller and clean it using a screwdriver, knife, etc. to remove the hair. the cleaning can be done while the roller is still on the unit by turning the unit over although this may not offer as much free access to the roller. Of course, removing the roller means removing the belt and if you are not up to this (I don't know how handy you are), I would try to remove the hair with the roller on. If you do this, be careful not to put any nicks in the belt. Good luck!

    Hoover mach 5 turns off after 10 minutes of use


    I have had problems with the belts on my Mach 5 overheating (smell of burning rubber) and also with the motor overheating and shutting down.
    I learned the hard way that one of the issues might be that the roller/brush on the bottom of the unit has a metal bearing inside the roller/brush that can become clogged with hair (both human and pet hair) which effects performance of the unit.
    Another item to check is if your dust filter is not plugged up which is located behind the removable dirt cup. This is the cup that you remove that collects the dust/dirt/hair from your floor. Take the removable dirt cup out by depressing the gold button and then look behind where the dirt cup sits for filter. This can be cleaned out by washing it with soap and water in the sink but make sure you let it dry overnight before placing it back in the machine. This probably causes some of the overheating when not enough clean air is passing through the machine.
    It’s fairly easy to fix.
    Lay the vacuum on the floor so that you can see the roller/brush. Then remove the phillip head screws that hold the protective plastic plate over the roller/brush. (There are about 6 screws that hold this plastic protective plate in place) Also, you will be removing the (1) screw that also holds the plastic plate over the belts. There are (2) belts that you can remove and when in doubt replace these (2) belts for around $9.00.
    Once you have the protective plastic plate off that covers the roller/brush disconnect the belt is around the roller. Take the roller and cut off any hair that is wrapped around the roller. Next, grab the roller by each end and twist the ends caps and (1) of the ends will unscrew. Once you have unscrewed one of the ends remove any hair or dust that is trapped under this cap. (Be careful not to lose the small metal washer that sit on top of the bearing)You will notice under this cap is a metal bearing that can become clogged and jammed with hair. The hair should come out fairly easy and allow the brush to spin fairly easy once you have screwed the end caps back in place test that it spins freely. If it doesn’t spin freely replace the roller/brush with a new one for about $23.00.
    When you put the belts back on the thick rubber one (Belt # 40201-271) has probably become stretched and should be replaced for about $3.00. The small diameter belt that goes over the roller/brush probably does not usually need to be replaced and does not usually fit very tight. I have heard that people will take the small roller/brush belt and turn it upside down to get a better fit.
    I just did this on my Mach 5 and it runs like a new machine. I did end up replacing the roller/brush head.
    Hopefully you will find this useful.

    New noise when vac is run


    mine was allowing the roller/beater bar to hit the cover as it turned take the cover back off and ensure the beater is in the right place then that the cover is locked in the right place then you can spin it by hand (power cord unplugged of course) and make sure it is clearing everything. BTW, the belt has to be stretched to get the beater bar in place like on most vac.s

    Self propel not working, burning smell


    Flip the vacuum cleaner over and check the roller brush. Is it full of string and hair? If so, unscrew the four phillips-head screws holding the plate on that covers the roller brush; pull out the brush, and cut off/clean off all the hair and string. Replace everything and try running the vacuum. Alternate solution: perhaps the belt that makes the brush go around is broken. If so, follow the above steps to remove the roller brush, then replace the belt.
