Having problems with your Vacuums ?

I have a self propelled Power Supreme vacuum. It

\015 I have a self propelled Power Supreme vacuum. It only works on the highest setting. IF I lower it the 'belt indicator' stops spinning and the vacuum starts to smell of burnt rubber. Also, the self propelled feature has stopped working. What's wrong?\015

Answers :

Most common cause is fibre / hair in the roller and brushes. remove base cover and remove fibres . Remove screws and use small scissors to cut along roller / brush then pull gently.
