Question about Hoover Vacuums

1 Answer

Rogue 900 series, model BH70790. How can I find what is blocking main roller drive?

Main roller drive is locked. I can’t figure out how to open it up to see what is blocking the roller drive. (I know how to remove the roller but the white sprocket that makes it rotate doesn’t turn).

SOURCE: Vacuum shuts off

It sounds like the hose from the bottom part is plugged. The motor has a high temperature protection that will shut the motor off if it overheats but will come back on once it cools. The motor will overheat if any restriction of airflow occurs. If the overload sensor reacts too many times, it will eventuall start to shut off before it should, so you should address the problem asap. Check the area behind the roller and the hose leading up to the connection to the attachment hose for blockage. Also, make sure you are not setting the machine height adjust too low. This will make the bottom plate sit down too close and cause a restriction in air flow to the motor.

SOURCE: Bissell Proheat 2x Series 8920 - Brush Belt Metal Shaft Sprocket won't turn

Most likely the brush motor is bad and not turning, part #2036757, would sell for around $23. To get to it, start taking out screws on the top cover, that motor is under the that top access cover.

SOURCE: hoover steamvac won't spray water on carpet.

Check the ank valve to make sure when you push it in that water is coming out. The reservior asm, (the tank bottom sits on this)is bad or the rod in the handle isn't pushing the reservior asm when you squeeze the trigger.

SOURCE: brushes do not rotate

Sounds as though your drive belt has come off. Or you have an object stopping the brushes from rotating.

It uses a cogged belt, turn it over, remove the bottom plate, remove the other screws from the bottom, turn vac back over and remove the Hoover emblem, there is a screw there to remove and the top comes off, then you can get to and replace the belt.

Eureka as1100 roller brush not spinning. We have already replaced the main belt but there is a secondary belt that drives the roller brush and we can't figure out how to access this belt.


Sorry folks, but there's no Eureka with this model no. The model number can be found on a sticker, usually on the bottom of the unit. We'll need the correct model to access schematics of the body so I can tell you how to access the belts.

U6485-900 WindTunnel Self-Propelled I changed the belts but there is not enough tension on the brush drive belt to get it to rotate


I had the exact same problem with my Hoover U6485-900 Anniversary upright, self propelled, vacuum. It would move backwards and forwards, had good vacuum, but wouldn't pick up much because the brush/roller was not turning very well. I replaced the main drive belt (38528035) and it now works great. The old belt had stretched and was slipping under load. Thanks for the great suggestions.

I have a hoover f5914-900 steam vac.. and I was wondering if there's a way to take apart the spin brushes to get them cleaned out well. I loaned it to family, and the brushes came back extremely soiled and...


The brush block may be removed from the base for rinsing.
Yes, you can CAREFULLY disassemble the brush block assembly by releasing each of three latches that hold each of the clear gear covers to the main block. A small screwdriver is used to GENTLY lift each tab, one at a time. Pay attention to what position the special gear is at that has the drive pin (1/4 inch square drive) for correct reassembly.

Here is the link to the User Manual that shows how to remove the brushes from the base.

Belt replacement


No belt- it is motor driven. what happens to these if the rollers get stuck(by- say, a Lego® or something)  is the roller itself has an insert which will break, requiring roller replacement. 
simple fix, but costs a little more than a belt. remove two screws holding the roller cover, accessible by flipping the vac over. then figure out which roller is broken, and remove the 2 outer screws on that side. pull the outer bearing cup assembly straight out to remove the rollers.
I have found the rollers as cheap as $3.50 ea/ for generic replacements. Also I reckon any Vac shop would have them on hand.

Belt Keeps slipping off shaft


If this is a new belt that keeps coming off, then if not catching something in the roller like a scatter rug, etc then the belt isn't tracking true. The pulley may have come loose for one thing, something has to be off to have the belt come off. Does it come off almost right away, or after some uasge?

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

Belt Stretched on my Hoover Windtunnel Farrington upright model U6431-900


hi, In order to to replace the V belt the one that turns the brush, One must take off the bigger belt " drive belt" that goes over that hugh wheel towards the back. When a belt gets stretched they will not turn the brush very well. If you have bought replacement belts the bigger belt Drive comes 2 in a package. Then you have your little V belt that helps turn your roller brush over. Yes the belts don't last long on my hoover. For kpatr22101 When you rpelace that V belt it goes over the roller brush into a little groove on the brush and then over a plastic round wheel then you must put on that bigger drive belt that must fit over that hugh wheel towards back and smaller on in front. Yes it is hard to get on. the I hope this helps. Cindy G.

Panasonic mc-v6840 Low suction.Changed bag and cleaned hose blockage


Check the sole plate where the roller brush is. There may be an obstruction leading from the sole plate to the main dirt channel. Usually on many Panasonic uprights the main dirt channel is a removable bent plastic tube before it meets the bottom of the hose. Check to see if this isn't obstructed. ALso check your filters on the vacuum as sometimes a blocked filter means a lack of suction.

How do I unclog a bissell vaccum? I'm not just talking about unclogging the hose, I need to unclog the complete vacuum cleaner. HELP!!!


Well firstly, whats the model number and do you have the user manual to hand?

If the main hose has been unblocked, then it could be the main dirt channel which is blocked just after the moving roller brush panel. A long pipe cleaner or wire brush can remove this blockage easily rather than taking everything apart.
