Having problems with your Vacuums ?
A throw rug got caught in the rolling pin of vaccuum. Rolling pin no longer works.
Hello. more likely than not, the small belt that drives the roller has either dislodged or broken. Unless you have a dyson, you can replace that belt for about 5 dollars. The dyson, however has encased the belt in a plastic assembly and the entire assembly must be replaced for about 80 dollars. J.

My shark bagless sweeper worked for about 6 months. Like a previous blogger, I caught the edge of a rug that jammed the sweeper, three red lights blink, the brush is free moving yet the sweeper will not work. I did leave it plugged in all the time otherwise it would not run but for minutes. Very disappointed. New battery? what if that doesn't work? is it junk then, money down the drain.

My Rainbow SE vacuum was working fine until I ran over the edge of a rug and it went in to the nozzle. I immediately switched the vacuum off and proceeded to move the rug. When I tried to turn the Rainbow back on the brush was no longer spinning. I've tried the reset button and checking the nozzle for any debris, there are none. The brush just won't spin.
Hello lilbutmunch1,\015\012The brush is motor/belt driven so you probably either broke the belt or it shifted off the motor or brush shaft. I suggest you unplug it,flip it over and look for screws that hold the baseplate together.. remove those ... Rainbow E series Canister Wet/Dry Vacuum
When I vacuum w/ the brush control in the on position it make a really loud noise, almost like a grinding sound. I have looked at it and nothing seems to be wrong, but I notice that the pin that engages the belt seems to vibrate a bit, possibly creating the noise. It started when I accidentally got part of a plastic grocery bag caught in the brush. Could it have stretched a belt? Nothing is caught any other place and it only makes the noise when the brush in in the on position.
Yes, the belt could have been stretched and is now vibrating and hitting other parts and creating a noise if much of the bag got caught under the belt. If you have another belt for this vacuum, please put it on and see if the noise stops. If it does ... Hoover U5780-900 Windtunnel Cyclonic Bagless UprightVacuum
The brushed roller on my Hoover Upright Canister has quit turning. Is this a broken belt? A friend recommended a "reset" button--is there such a thing?? Everything else works fine; power, suction, headlight. That belt just doesn't work anymore since we accidentally caugght the edge of a throw rug.

My Hoover Deluxe Rewind Elite will not pick up anything. My daughter got something caught in it last night and it made that noise when you get something hung. We turned it off but today it will not work. Is there a reset button?
When you are saying "today it will not work" do you mean the motor runs, but the unit will not vacuum, or are you saying nothing happens when you try to turn it on?If the motor run's, the belt probably broke. You will need to remove the b ... Vacuums
Havent used for about two years. I had to put the belt on it. It doesnt seem to be sucking up very well and after about 15 minutes of vaccuuming the bag was empty. My house got really dusty. I know the rollers were spinning because i looked. I could hear some dirt going in but could definatly tell it wasnt working properly. Is it in reverse or something?
After two years you need to make sure the bag is connected properly and inspect it for tears and that the hoses are connected correctly and not deteriorated. Make sure the hose is clear. You should be able to feel the suction at the end of the hose. ... Vacuums
I have a Miele S1721 Powerhouse upright vacuum. When the belt broke I took it into the shop (because when i tried to replace the belt, the tension was so tight I couldn't get it back together!!). When I got it home I DISCOVERED THAT THE HEIGHT ADJUSTMENT DIDN'T WORK anymore. It seems like it's set really hight, because it no longer contacts and brushes the carpet. So it's now useless. I went back to the shop and the tech denied that there was anything wrong. (I didn't have the vac with me). No

I ran my vacuum against an area rug that has strings around it and a few strings got caught up in the beater bar. Now, the beater bar does not function- the motor runs but the beater bar does not seem to be operating. I removed the strings from the bar.
Hi,\015\012\015\012There is a switch next to the main power switch on the handle which turns the brushbar on and off. When the beater bar becomes obstructed as in your case, there is a safety feature which cuts power to the beater bar. Al ... Dyson DC17 Animal Bagless Upright Cyclonic Vacuum
I have a bosch bagless jet 12 amps/1450 W which I got secondhand. the switch to operate the powerhead (the rug brush) no longer gives me any results. I don't have the right tools to unscrew the plates and look for a belt. I don't think it's a belt problem anyway because I don't hear the powerbrush motor turn on, either.

Hello,\015\012\015\012If your vacuum runs but still leaves dirt behind, the culprit could be the drive belt or an obstruction. If the agitator brush slips or won't turn, the belt is bad and needs to be replaced. If suction is weak when yo ... Dyson DC07 Animal Bagless Upright Cyclonic Vacuum
While using my Dyson a rug got caught and that ratcheting sound started. I removed all signs of strings, etc until the brushes rotated fine but when I started the Dyson the ratcheting started again. I have the DC 14 Animal.
The rattly sound means the drive belt has snapped or the protective clutch has slipped. This needs repair by someone who knows how to repair Dysons officially. Sadly its the kind of model that can't be done by the owner. ... Dyson DC14 Animal Bagless Upright Cyclonic Vacuum
