Roller brush not spinning

The roller brush on my Hoover spins fine if you have the head off of the floor, but as soon as you put in on the carpet it stops spinning. I've replaced the belt and the same thing happens. I ran it with the head cover off and noticed that the motor stops running when the slightest bit of pressure is put on the roller brush, and then it won't start up again until you turn the machine off and on again. Any help greatly appreciated

I fixed this by wrapping about 10 layers of black electrical tape around the brush roller where the belt rides on it. This slightly tightens the belt enough to drive the roller better.

The carpet has been laid too loosely, probably never been knee-rammed against the wall to tighten it . A common complaint about lazy carpet layers. Vacuum sucks up the carpet and locks the roller causing the belt to spin until it burns through.

I have the Windtunnel 2 Rewind Pet; initially is worked fantastically. Then the beater brush stopped working when the vacuum would be on carpet or when the handle was dropped down for vacuuming carpet, even with a low pile. So, we changed the belt and it was no better. Everything has been thoroughly cleaned off and out. Still no luck. I am going to try the electrical tape around where the belt touches the brush head like what was suggested by Deane Willliams and hope it works. I was really thrilled will this vacuum when I first purchased it. Also, the attachment with the little spinner in it to pick up pet hair used to work great, soo, but even with thorough cleaning done by taking it apart, it doesn't work well and will stop spinning frequently.

UPDATE: Well, 10 wraps with electrical tape did the trick. Thank you! Now, to the attachment...

Most Frequent Causes for Vacuum cleaner brush not spinning

Cause 1

Belt

Inspect the belt to see if it is broken, stretched out, or out of place. If the vacuum cleaner belt is broken or stretched out, replace it.

Cause 2

Drive Belt

Inspect the belt to see if it is broken, stretched out, or out of place. If the drive belt is broken or stretched out, replace it.

Cause 3

Cogged Belt

Inspect the belt to see if it is broken, stretched out, or out of place. If the cogged belt is broken or stretched out, replace it.

Cause 4

Brushroll

If the brushroll is sticking, it will cause too much friction and put too much strain on the belt. Remove the brushroll and clean all hair, string, and lint from the brushroll bearings. If the vacuum cleaner brush still doesn’t spin after you clean the brushroll, consider replacing the brushroll.

Cause 5

Brushroll Motor

First, test the power switch for continuity to ensure that the brushroll motor is getting power. If the power switch has continuity, ensure that the motor turns freely and is clear of obstructions. If power is getting to the motor, and the motor turns freely, but the motor still won’t run the motor is likely defective.

Hi @douglasgrubbs,

Assuming that you have a Hoover UNP300R (as that is what this page is about) have you checked that the floor setting is set to "carpet"?

If it is and it still doesn't work, as it is new return it to where you got it from for a replacement or refund (or see the manufacturer's warranty statement that should have come with it as to what to do with a faulty product still covered by the manufacturer's warranty.

Whoever wrote the “answer” should try and find another job!

This piece of sh.t Hoover is the same crap as any vacuum I have ever owned. For the price, a Dyson seems to be better as much, as I like Dyson.

Now, I am not sure what I did, but I took the power Nozzle apart and re-positioned the brush motor and that seemed to have solved the problem. Originally I had a professional Vacuum Service fix the same problem and they charged me just under $70 CAD. Now I did it myself for free, though I still don’t know what is wrong with that piece of Wonder!

I think, it is time that the Engineers come up with a better idea for Vacuums; this technology is just about 100 years old and not the most reliable! Don’t we live in the 21st. Century now?

Check if the carpet has been laid without knee-jamming to tighten it Can be checked by watching if the carpet lifts off the floor, if it does, this is what locks the roller and makes the belt spin until it burns out.

@Michael Gancott: I agree that the “Choosen Solution” (from “Mayer”) is bogus. It looks like it was written by a computer program. In fact I would bet on it. No human writes like that with stupid entries showing the identical text for “Belt” and “Drive Belt”. Then they added the painted picture of some old guy who looks like he might be experienced. Hah!!

@douglasgrubbs: I don’t see where Nick said it was “brand new”. Chances are the belt is just worn so it slips when the load is put on the rotating brush. Or as Jayeff said make sure you are not using it in Floor setting when on thick carpeting.
