Hi Clyde

\015\012Without looking at your exact problem with my eyes, I believe that it may be as simple as Unplugging the unit, then try to grab the shoelace, if it is still visible, you may need needle-nose pliers, and then try to unwind the shoelace. It may be jamming the brush!

\015\012It sounds like what happened to my wife recently! I was able to remove the lace, and was back in business! On my unit, (Kenmore brand), I had to remove the cover of the head. While I was in there, I replaced the agitator brush belt. Good Luck!
Hi Clyde,
\015\012Before you start, unplug the vacuum from the wall socket.
\015\012First remove all the shoe laces from the beater brush. Then make sure the belt in installed correctly. If this doesn't correct the problem, open the unit and find any fuses that it may have and replace any that are blown. That sould correct your problem. It sure seems that vacuums get hungry for more than dirt at times. lol Good Luck

Miele S514 Solaris Electro Plus with Power Brush. Bought it in 2003. I love it, except the Power Brush just lost power so now I can't vacuum the carpets. I believe it is a SEB 212-2 Power Brush. The vacuum (canister) is Black. Any help is appreciated. There is no power to it at all. I've unplugged it, smacked it around a little too (mostly kidding) but still nothing.

Hoover Vacuum My Hoover cannister model s3614 "runabout powermax" suddenly lost power to the agitator roller in the rug brush. Where the wire cord enters the power brush, the covering has rubbed off exposing the wires which are not bare but still have their own covering. For a while the power came and went as I manipulated the wires but finally died. Is this something I can fix myself or is it going to be an expensive professional repair? (Warrantee has elapsed.) Thanks.

Can you tell me if Powermate Power Brush attachments are all the same for all the Sears Powermate Cannister vacuums.  That is, would one power brush attachment on a Model 116.56512690 fit one that is Model 116-22512202?  Are the connecting ports all the same size?Thanks for your help.

The brushes spin very, very slowly and stop altogether sometimes - like they just don't have any power behind them.I've cleaned the brushes and also turned it on without the brushes inside to see if the female plug that the brushes go into turns - it does, but not very fast. My husband said he thought he smelled something - like burning. Is there a way to take the underside cover off and clean something?

Hoover Windtunnel U5750-900 Agitator brush is weak. It turns fine if I tilt the vacuum back, but it slows to almost 1/4 speed when it touches carpet, even on the highest carpet setting.

I should probably lube the agitator brush ball bearings, and re-check the belt, but, other than that, I'm stumped.
