I replaced my belts on my premium hoover wind tunnel and the roller barely moves. Also, I keep getting a rubber burning smell. I'm confused weather if it's worth to have fixed or buy new.


More then likely whats going on with your roller is on each side of the roller is bearings and hair or other things build up and makes it really hard to rotate.Take the roller off the vacuum and check you may be able to clean and oil them.

It might be a slipping rubber belt, is the brush roller moving when you look underneath? If it's a self propelled machine there might be another slipping belt. Friction from fast rubbing rubber can smell like it is burning.

That means that the belt is stretched and it is slipping on the motor shaft, that is why it is hot and smells like burning rubber. You need to replace the belt. Here is the correct belt you need:

How do you change the Hoover wind tunnel belts?


If you turn the vacuum over there will be (4) screws that hold on the base cover for the roller brush. Remove the screws and the cover and you can get to the belt(s). You can get replacement belts here:

Vacuum shuts off and has a burnt smell


Hi,
Try removing the drivebelt, and try running it to test like this. The brush bar will not turn, but it should function normally without smell at this point. If it doesn't, you may need a new motor as I think the brushes may have worn down - producing an electrical type burning smell.

If it runs fine without the belt attatched, then there is probably a build-up of hair or threads at each end of the roller stopping it turning freely. With the hoover off, check it turns freely and easily. A small metal nail file or similar is usually a good tool to clear it.

If the roller is stiff, the belt will not turn easily, and overheat on the motor spindle - causing the burning smell.

Rubber smell, Hoover


Well it sound like you do need a new belt because of how the smell is you might want to stop using it because the smell comes from the burning and over heated belt my solution would be to get a new belt and that should fix it if you need anything else you know whre to find me.

Changing belts on Hoover wind tunnel U6401


Take off the bottom plate covering the brush roll, 4 screws. There are 2 belts, if you replace both, put the V belt on 1st, then stretch the flat belt over the motor shaft, then over the bigger pulley along side the V belt.
