Beater brushes wont work
\015 The brushes will spin when vacuum is tilted back, but not when placed on carpet...even on highest carpet setting. I have ordered new belts (3 weeks ago)..not here yet...i have also cleaned everything...and suggestions?\015
Sounds like you really need a new belt. Don't know why it is taking so long for you to get one. But belts stretch and then won't turn the brush roll under load. Call around to your local repair shops, must will a good selection of belts on hand.

Have a Centralux Aerus about 5 years old. Don't see a model number. There is suction but beater brush quit working. Was using for a few minutes, shut it off for a few minutes, turned it back on and suction only. Tried the reset button also. Tried the sidekick attachment and it works fine. There was no smell like something was hot. Belt is fine. Are there any fuses or anything else to try?
