Hoover U6630-900 WindTunnel Bagless Upright Vacuum\015 Hello,..I realized last week, that the main brush is not rotating. I took the bottom cover off and realized that the existing v-belt seems too loose. But I could not figure out how it could become bigger overnight. Today I bought a new v-belt and also a new drive belt at Sears and after installing the new belts it seems that the new v-belt is again too loose and does not grab the brush-wheel tightly enough to rotate ir. The one roll that is driven by the broad drive belt which\302\240does rotate fast, but the v-belt is not moved along as it seems to be too big. Nothing else seems loose or moved. HELP!!!..Thanks!\015

..Once they release, turn the vacuum over and lift cover of power nozzle at the back. This pulls the front of the cover out of the lip on the “bumper”.
.Once this is done, you’ll need to unscrew the screw at each end of the brush. Lift the brush out and thoroughly clean it, including the ends.
.Check the wiring to make sure they’re connected to the terminals of the motor. Also, check the belt for wear and tear. These belts can last for five years or more, but if it looks bad a good time to replace it is while you have the power head apart.
.When reassembling the vacuum, ensure the belt is fitted properly around the motor shaft and brush.
.Insert the front of the cover first, ensuring the edge fits neatly beneath the lip on the bumper all the way around. It takes a little manipulating to press the back into place. Make sure both tabs click into the locked position. Turn the vacuum over and reinstall screws. Try to rotate brush by hand a few times.
.At this point, plug the vacuum in and turn it on. If the power head doesn’t run, press the reset button. If the power head motor still doesn’t run, it could be due to loose or disconnected wires that lead to the reset switch, a bad reset switch, or even a bad motor. The vacuum needs to be taken to the nearest Aerus Electrolux store for further diagnosis and repair.
Last, make sure the brush selector switch is “on”
