Spins up, then stops.

My machine starts up, but seems to try to pin up to full revs from standing. The drive belt squeeks initially as the motor starts to spin, but almost instantly the motor cuts out again and drum comes to a stop. Thats my lots, nothing more happens...any ideas???

Sounds like the problem could be in the tachometer. This is located on the shaft of the motor at the back and has wires going from it to the main wiring plug for the motor. The tachometer cannot be repaired and will have to be replaced.

IF it sits and you can turn it later, the only thing that would cause that is something heating up and becoming seized. When it cools off it frees itself. I would check the bearings on the drum.

Brushes on hoover deluxe steam vac cvarpet cleaner are not rotating. Took out the brush assy and drive spins slowly but with little torque. Cannot seem to open the bottom to see if belt or direct...

(1) Assure the brush shut off lever on the hood is not set to the off position.
(2) Is there still a square pin standing up from the one drive brush? It should be 1/4 square, and about two inches tall. That pin is the drive from the transmission to the brushes.
There are no belts. The transmission is air and gear drive mechanism.

Motor building revs when clutch is pushed in/ vibration in floor

Hi this is caused by you timing belt being to tight or off a tooth. The tech is trying to get out of pulling it back apart. Go back there and be stern with them it is there fault. Reseting your computers will do nothing on you car due to it not having computer with adaptive learning system. Tell him that and see what he says. I cant stand techs that lie.

Washer belt is loose, & seem to slip at start of spin cycle.

there are several drive belts for this model... check here to see if the one you are fitting is the correct one... also,is the tensioner siezed? causing the tension to be too slack therefore allowing the belt to shred at speed?
