When Should I Replace My Hoover Brush Roll?

Since worn bristles will not effectively clean your carpt, you should replace the brush roll when the bristles are worn much as you replace your toothbrush when its bristles wear out. It's easy to tell when the bristles are worn out -- they feel soft and mushy instead of stiff, and they may also have "split ends".

If your vacuum cleaner "eats belts" or is very noisy, the bearings in the brush roll may be defective or the endcaps may be clogged with hairs and carpet fibers. In either case, consider replacing the brush roll, especially if the bristles are also showing signs of wear. Also, it's a good idea to replace the belt when the brush roll is replaced.

Brush Roll Tips

Set your vacuum cleaner's carpet height adjustment to the right level for best performance. Here's how:

Turn the adjustment dial to the highest setting, turn on your vacuum and release the handle. (Turn off the self-propell mechanism if so equipped.) Lower the dial one setting at a time until you hear the "tone" change, i.e. the humming of the brush drops to a lower pitch. This setting is ideal for the floor surface you are cleaning. Any higher and the brush won't make contact with the carpet. Lower, and there won't be enough space to allow air in around the sides of the vacuum to suck up the dirt.

Never use the brush roll on bare floors such as wood, vinyl or tile. Either turn the brush off, change the height adjustment setting to the highest level, or use a bare floor tool or brush. This will protect your floor from scratches and also keep dirt from scattering around the room.
