There are 2 plastic screws that pivot 90 degrees on the top of the front nozzle. Turn them and lift off the hood. You will see the brush roll and belt. Remove the brush roll and clean off any debris or hair, also from metal caps at the ends of the roller. Be careful not to loose the 2 washers under the end caps. Place the new belt on the motor shaft that sticks out of the main body, then place the brush roll pulley against the belt and pull forward and lock the roller in position. Spin the roller by hand to make sure that the belt is aligned properly. Place the hood back on the front nozzle and turn the plastic screws to tighten. Have fun cleaning.

Roller will not turn on hover u57809rm


One of the two belts may be broken or stretched on the unit. USUALLY it is the thin flat belt that runs directly off of the motor assembly. Replace the belt on the unit and you should be good.

Riccar 8000 Series Brush Won't Engage


Greetings from GoVacuum,

It sounds like you have a bad part called the Clutch Rubber Pad Holder Assembly on the inside of your roller brush. I believe that the problem you are having is that the roller brush does not spin, but the belt is properly installed and engaged, correct? This can only be something inside the clutch mechanism in the roller brush itself has gone bad. The easiest way to fix this is to purchase a new roller brush assembly, which can be purchased here; Riccar 8000 Series Roller Brush With Rug/Floor Switch. I realize that this is a rather expensive part at $43.00, but it may be worth it for you to avoid the aggravation of having to take apart the roller brush piece by piece. To test out this part, and verify that it has gone bad what you need to do is turn the vacuum upside down and remove the bottom plate. Then make sure the vacuum is in the Carpet setting on the Rug / Floor switch on the top of the vacuum. Now while the bottom plate is off, turn the vacuum cleaner on. Can you see the belt spinning on the brush? Is the brush roll itself not spinning? If the belt is spinning on the pulley, but the brush itself is not spinning, this indicates that it's bad.

If you decide that you'd rather just replace the rubber gasket inside of the roller brush, here's a detailed repair solution for you on how to replace this part;

Step 1: Remove the roller brush from the vacuum cleaner completely. If you need help with this step, please see my repair solution for the belt change on your model here; http://www.fixya.com/support/t4184186-replace_belt_riccar

Step 2: Once the roller brush has been removed, turn the brush on it's side, so the metal end that has 2 teeth protruding out is on top, and the end that has the rubber cap is downwards. Use a flat head screw driver to remove the clip on that outside of the brush;

Step 3: Remove the clip on the outside of the brush with a screw driver, then remove the metal end cap from the brush. The entire roller brush is spring loaded, so you'll need to apply some downward force to these parts so they don't just shoot off. It's really the easiest if you lay out the pieces to the roller brush in the order that they were taken off, to make it easier when you are reinstalling these pieces. After removing the metal cap at the end, this is what you should see:

23dd8af.jpg
Step 4: There is a small plastic washer underneath of the metal cap. Remove the washer, and the plastic part underneath of the washer that has two teeth protruding outwards. This is how the brush should look after this step;


d940b1d.jpg

Step 5: After removing the plastic part with the teeth, the next part of the brush is the metal part which is called the Inside Metal Cam. The Inside metal cam is the part that the actuator arm for the rug / floor switch connects into. Remove the Inside Metal Cam from the brush. This is how it should look after this step;


fd04308.jpg
Step 6: The next part underneath of the Inside Metal Cam is called the Agitator Pulley Clutch. This is the part that the belt rides on. Remove the Agitator Pulley Clutch from the roller brush. This is how it should look after the Agitator Pulley Clutch has been removed;


f634050.jpg
Step 7: The next part that needs to be removed is called the Agitator Compression Spring which is used to spring load the entire roller brush. Simply slide this spring off the Agitator Shaft, and this is how it should look;


02b8973.jpg

Step 8: After the Agitator Compression Spring has been removed, turn the roller brush on the side, and remove the Agitator Shaft from the roller brush. This is done by simply pulling the other side of the brush end which is covered by a rubber boot. This will remove the long metal shaft which is sticking up. This is how it pulls out;


dec4f58.jpg
After the shaft has been removed, the other end of the brush should look like this;


0c192ff.jpg
Step 9: The next part that needs to be removed is probably the part that's worn out on your vacuum. The part is called the Clutch Rubber Pad Holder Assembly, Riccar Part Number C012-0400. The way the roller brush works is, when you move the Rug / Floor switch to Floors, the clutch (the parts that you just took apart) loosens up so that the belt is still turning, but the pulley that it spins on is not tight against the brush. When you select the switch to carpets, the clutch then tightens the pulley against the Clutch Rubber Pad Holder Assembly so the when the belt spins on the pulley, it's also now going to spin the brush. Over time this part gets heated up, and the rubber wears down to a point where the pulley will no longer stick to it, which causes the exact problem that you have, where the belt is installed correctly, but will not spin the brush. Simply use a flat head screw driver and pry directly on top of the brush strip, and remove the Clutch Rubber Pad Holder Assembly;

rsz_1riccar_repair-9(1).jpg This is how the part looks by itself; t1riccar_repair-14.jpg?732892 If you're interested in purchasing this part, you may contact your local Riccar dealer, or we can also supply you this part. Once again this part is called the Clutch Rubber Pad Holder Assembly, Riccar part number C012-0400. Please just email me at [email protected] for pricing on this part if you need it.

Hoover WindTunnel Self-Propelled V Belt


when you released the end to slide the new belt on it allows the tension roller to slide into the wrong position. Remove the top so that you can see the roller, at the left side of the roller mechanism there is a screw, loosen it enough to allow the roller to return to the correct position.
good luck

Does not pick up dirt anymore


There are two belts on this machine. The first is a flat rubber belt that is designed to slip or break if the roller is jammed. This bet requires replacement at least once a year. It is vitally important to get the proper belt, as there is no other that will fit and function. The second is a v-belt and the early model belts were too thin and would sit down in the pulley too far and the tension required to drive the roller would be less than sufficient. When the handle is in the upright position, the roller stops. When the handle is lowered, there is an idler arm and pulley that sits down on the v-belt and tightens it enough to rotate the roller. In some cases, the tire on the pulley will come off and will not put enough force on the belt to tighten it.
There is also an adjustment on the hood of the machine to turn the roller off for bare floor cleaning. This adjustment should only be made with the handle in the upright position.
The belt(s) can look just fine and still be worn out. Replacing the belts is always the first solution and the least expensive.

Hoover Self Propelled Wind Tunnel Turbo Powered 7600 The thin belt too loose


If this is a "V" belt, make sure the small roller that tightens the belt is ok and not jammed up. It may have to be replaced. Also if the flat belt is stretched at all, it won't work either.

Kirby Belt Lifter Assembly


I have tried to get a parts breakdown for your vacuum cleaner with no success. The way that then washers should go is the flat smotth metal washer on the inside followed by the fibre washer and the wavy washer on the outside. The waves are used to bite into the plastic so it cannot work loose.
