Brush does not turn on my vaccum
\015 The vaccum is a sears Kenmore canister type, and it has a motor that turns the brush and a light for nigth vision. neither the motor or the light work.\015
When you attach the hose to the wands, there is a connection made between the hose electrical receptacle and the cord from the powerhead. On the Kenmore, it is common for the receptacle on the hose to break away from it's seat and slide back into the handle. When this happens, the receptacle is not positioned far enough forward to make the plug-in connection. Look at the end of the hose and check the receptacle and see if it is sitting flush with the plastic opening that it sits in. If it is pushed back, that's your problem. Also check the re-set breaker on the powerhead. If you got something caught in the brush roll, the breaker will have kicked out to protect the motor.

Hoover Mach 6 U5198-900 vacuum roller brush won't turn. I had opened the bottom to clean hair off the roller. the belts are not broken. When I closed it and turned it on, now the roller brush won't turn. I can push and turn it by hand, but not easily. Then I noticed the brush on/off switch is turned off, but when I step on it, it won't turn on. I was thinking I let something get out of place when I opened the bottom, but can't see what.

Hoover WindTunnel S3765. The motor spins and the belt turns when I turn the brushes on, and the brushes will spin. The problem is that when I do this on carpet, the brushes stop spinning. As soon as I pull the "head" off the carpet, the brushes spin again. It's almost as if the vacuum suction is too great. I took the head apart and watched the motor turn the metal spindle that the belt rests on, and the belt turns as well.
