My dyson turbo brush won't spin, and doesn't seem to be sucking either. Not sure what to do

No suction I have new belts. Everything is clean. No clogs. When I turn it on it smells like rubber , the brush doesnt spin. Everything seems to be free flowing.. Roller brush isnt stuck on the ends. Took off hose to make sure no clogs anywhere. There is not even suction thru the hose with the handle in upright position.

5 yr. old Miele s514 Turbo plus's power nozzle brush seems to disengage temporarily, stopping the spin. Then it seems to re-seat itself after a few seconds, then starts spinning OK. I keep the nozzle brush very clean, so there is no hair or yucky stuff to cause it to jam. Please help.
I had a White Pearl with same problem. As I moved the hose/wand the brush motor would start stop. Find out where the circuit opens up by holding one part and moving the part that connects to it - 1) where the hose plugs into the cleaner, 2) the swi ... Miele S514 Solaris Turbo Plus Vacuum
Why wont the brushes spin? I have had this machine for about 3 years and it has always worked great, tonight the brushes will not spin at all, it still sprays and sucks up the water. We took the brushes off and were able to spin them by hand

I cut all of the hair out of the bottom of the spin-brush on the Dyson Upright Animal Vacuum. Now I dont think I can get the brush back in there correctly. If I squeeze it in there (which it is a VERY tight fit...) then it wont spin. Any thoughts?

My dyson dc animal's brush is not spinning. The machine smells like burning rubber. I believe the clutch has gone out but the machine also only sucks from the top of the hose in the handle.

My Dyson DC 14 is making the horrible "ratcheting"sound only when the brush is engaged on the carpet setting. I have cleaned the brush, so there are no obstructions, the canister is empty and properly on the unit. I checked to make sure all of the "traps" and hoses are clear of obstructions, the belt is on the brush securely and moves freely, the brush itself spins freely, but there is still the "ratcheting" noise. Any other suggestions?
Our DC33 was making the same ratcheting sound immediately upon placing the cleaner/brush head on the carpet. We carefully pulled the beater/brush bar out of the vacuum. Once removed, we pulled the black plastic end off of the center rod. We discovere ... Dyson DC14 Animal Bagless Upright Cyclonic Vacuum

I have a Dyson all-floor model (not the ball). I recently replaced my carpet to a Frieze. Since replacing the carpet, the Dyson is extremely hard to push. It almost forms a "seal" with the carpet. Seems to work fine on Berber carpet and laminate floor. My husband has checked to make sure the brushes are working, hoses are not clogged and belts are OK. I've had it for about a year. It is virutally impossible to push on the new carpet. Any ideas?

My Oreck XL upright is blowing out instead of sucking in. I changed the bag and cleaned the brushes; I also cleaned out the main "pipe." I looked for a place to change settings and couldn't find any, so I know I didn't inadvertently switch something. The brushes seem to be spinning at the correct speed. Thank you, Julia Byrem

The brush on my bissell helix (model 22C1-2) stopped working all of a sudden today. The hose still sucks and everything. I even cleaned the spinning brush and it still doesnt work. I just bought it in August.
My dyson is not sucking. There is no clog and the spinning brush on bottom is spinning.

My Bissell 9200 is not sucking the water into the dirty water resevoir. 1. The gasket on the clear-view seems fine. 2. The suction power just doesn't seem powerful enough (feeling with my hand). 3.
