Having problems with your Vacuums ?

The brush bar on my brand new DC 28 has stopped spinning - it is not clogged with hair, it just stops spinning almost immediately. Is there a reset button?


Answers :

If there is nothing dragging it down like clogged hair ect then usually this just means the rubber drive belt has either stretched or is too smooth to grip and properlly drive the beater bar brushes. When those happen the belt cannot get a grip and slips and the brushes aren't driven. On a new vacuum it usually isn't from wear it is from a loose belt or one that has moved out of line. If the brushes are a bit draggy or you went over something that slowed them down that can quickly cause the belt to get polished even on a new one.

You will probably want to take the bottom plate off and look at the bar. It may have fibers or hair at the edges out of sight. Also look at the drive belt it should be dull not shiney. The belts are inexpensive and just take a few minutes to replace. If you can find a vacuum store and buy the belt there they may change it for free or a nominal fee. Most stores that have a larger selection of vaccums will also have spare belts. You can change it yourself and the procedure should be in the owners manual of most vacuums.
Does the motor run while the brush bar doesn't spin? that wasn't mentioned

Belts breaking/melting The original belt broke at almost 1 year so I replaced it. I changed the carpet setting to shag even though my carpet is very low pile to make it easier on the vacuum.

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.

In my (almost new) Dyson DC31 Animal the rolling brush tends to stop like the bearing was kind of difficult to turn. I opened the side carter and removed the little belt. Without the belt the engine runs regularly. I cleaned the little knots of hairs trapped in the bearing but still the brush runs for a while then stops, tries for a bit then stops again. I even tryed putting a bit of synthetic lubricant with apparently no result. Could it be a defective bearing? Thanks for your help.
