Having problems with your Vacuums ?

Vacuum cleaner roller won't spin but everything else looks okay

\015 The vacuum cleaner is working except the roller doesn't spin. It is sucking in the air properly and works with the hose alone. The belt is still on also.\015

Answers :

Hi, if the roller isnt spinning then the usual cause of this is going to be that either the drive belt has stretched and is spinning without turning the roller or the drive belt could have snapped what you can do to find out is like the vac on its back and spin the roller with your fingers with the vac switched off if it spins really freely then the belt has snapped if you can feel some tension then the belt is still attatched and has just stretched.

now you can buy the belts and fit them yourself all you need to do is undo the screws near to where the roller is then the bottom part will pull off giving you access to the roller and the belt take the belt off and take it to a electronic or vac repair shop and then they will be able to supply you with a new belt that will be the exact fit to yours, if you have had the vac from new then you usually get a spare belt with it unless its a cheap vac say if it was a dyson then you get spare belts when you buy the vac if you didnt get spare belt dont worry you can buy them for next to nothing and is easy to fit yourself.

let me know how you get on or if you need further assistance ok

ps you may find the belt is ok and the roller is jammed up with hair and such like so removing the bottom cover will give you a good idea of the problem just take your time when taking the bottom off and remember how it comes apart they are not that difficult to do so just take your time ok

Water is not being discharged. I have filled the reservoir that holds the carpet cleaner fluid And I have filled the water container. I know how to use the cleaner, it has always worked, But now, no water is being discharged to the carpet. I turn it on, squeeze the trigger, but nothing comes out. The wheel that is suppose to spin (to indicate that water is being discharged) is not spinning. Everything else works. I.e. the suction works, and the hand held accessories work.

I have an old Progressive vacuum cleaner that says "Hepa Filter" and "Whisper Belt". Not sure what the model # is. The problem is that the vacuum part itself (the part that touches the floor and rolls over) has ejected its filter that we can see through the little window- it just came out under the rollers under the device... we cannot see how to re-insert this piece of filter which looks like a kind of round, flat grey foam/fabric and clearly goes inside- (top of the part that touches the flo

Which Kenmore vacuum cleaners are made by Panasonic? Are all of their direct drive machines made by Panasonic? We have a blue Hoover Windtunnel with the dirt sensor.
