So I purchased a Hoover Convertible locally today. The brush roll housing with the two slots that hold the roller in has worn down and cracked odd. The original Hoover roller will vibrate and roll around in the housing...but my CWP roller works fine and fits snugly. Is there a way to fix this?

One method that might work is to strengthen the cracks with super glue, then try and "reform/remold" it by using plaster of Paris .

I've seen those brushroll slots wear out or crack with plastic base machines. It's a high stress area. There are millions of machines out there that can be donors for bases.
