Having problems with your Vacuums ?

Power carpet brush stopped working. - Vacuums

Answers :

Ceck to see if the drive belt broke or came off. If a big slug of material gets up by the motor it can push the belt off or possible break it. If broken you can repair this without too much issue. A new belt should just be $5-$10 and you'll have to disemble part of the lower unit just take care as to what goes where. Be certain it is unplugged during any repairs.

Take off the bottom cover and make sure the belt is not slipping or broken. Clean out any debris also while you are in there. If the roller spins easily then the reset button in the same unit must be pushed. Thank You, Dana
