Having problems with your Vacuums ?
Beater does not work. - Vacuums
Not knowing what type of vacuum you have does not make it easy.\015\012However, usually caused by a broken belt or the fact that the beater brush is bound up by debris either being on the beater or having accumulated at the ends of the beater where the brush is supposed to spin on the end plates.\015\012After checking the belt I would remove the beater brush, clean it very good and put some WD40 on the ends of the axle of the beater brush and make sure it spins freely on the holding plates.

I have a DC25 that I just bought in Dec 10. The last few times I vacuumed the carpet, the beater bar worked on and off. Now it does not move at all. I took off the beater bar to see if there were any obstructions, but there were none. Could you please help me with this. Right now my husband is saying that we should not have bought such an expensive vacuum (which he has said all along). I want to prove him wrong!! Up til a couple of weeks ago, it was working perfectly and I have loved it!
This is a good quality machine which I am sure wil last a long time in answer to your question make sure that the setting is set for carpet and not just flooring ..the head needs to be flat on the floor for the beater to work .I am assuming that thi ... Dyson DC25 All Floors Bagless Upright Vacuum
Kenmore canister vacuum model 116-25512506. It has a 2 stage switch on the handle, the vacuum motor will not work, the carpet beater attachment does work, the vacuum motor will not cut on at all with either stage, 1st stage is vac only, 2nd is vac a carpet attachment. Carpet attachment will work, vac does not.
Try to find the reset button. It should be somwhere near the bottom area. It looks like a red dot that you can push inward. If you can press and hold the reset button, it will restart your suction and solve your problem. ... Vacuums
My beater bar on my Kenmore 116.25615506 canister vacuum keeps turning on and off when I vacuum rugs. The suction continues, but the beater bar seems to be shorting or whatever. I checked the belts and they look like new. Any suggestions? The rest of the vacuum works fine!

Rug beater does not work, vacuum does I just was vacuuming the rug and it suddenly stopped, beater will not turn on.
The beater bar will turn itself off if something became lodged in the brushbar area - it turns itself off so that it doesn't cause any further damage.

My beater bar does not work on my vacuum. The problem is not in the hose or the attachment, because I connected to another electrolux vacuum and it worked. So the problem must be in the canister.
It's most likely a loose wire in the canister then. I recommend taking the whole vacuum to an Aerus Electrolux store and letting the service tech check it out. They can find out the problem quickly.\015\012Be aware they may try to sell you a ... Electrolux UltraLux 2000 Bagged Canister Vacuum

The beater bar seems to have worn and is loose. (very noisy) the vacuum still works but the beater bar rattles.
Not sure how I can help, as it seems you know what the problem is! Fit a new brush bar! On some Dyson models (not sure if the DC17 is one of them) you have to fit a new sole plate at the same time - they are supplied together as a kit. Good luck. ...

Beater bar has been rattling when running the vacuum. Stopped working all together today while vacuuming.
Hi\015\012The rattling sound is permanent and is supposed to alert the owner that the drive belt/clutch has come undone. Sadly it also means an official repair as the Animal has a protected belt that can't be repaired by the owner. ... Dyson DC17 Animal Bagless Upright Cyclonic Vacuum

Our Proteam ProForce 1500 is 1 year old. The vacuum works (****) in the hardwood floor setting on the switch. The beater works on the other setting but it won't **** and beat at the same time. What is wrong and is it something I can fix?
It may be something to do with the actual switch on this unit. \012\012I have a feeling it may have to do with the wiring on the switch itself, perhaps one of the wires have come off or burned on the contact. \012\012Is it som ... Proteam ProForce 1500 Bagged Upright Vacuum

Oreck XL21 just will not work at all any more. Beater is clean - belt is fine. Fresh bag - inflates. Took the thing apart - checked for blockages at intake, bag entry, and the tube. It just doesn't vacuum anything. No suction at all for anything stronger than air. I'd say it doesn't ****, but that would be ironic. Are these known for just "quitting" after a while? We take it in for maintenance as recommended to replace filters, etc. Is there some miracle trick to make it work or sho
Did you make sure the brush turns freely? Even though it is clean, if it does not turn freely with the belt, it will not beat the carpet and pull debris up into the unit.\015\012\015\012Another (drastic?) thing to try would be to take the unit ... Vacuums

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? This vacuum cleaner has not really been used that much, it is hard to believe the motor would need replaced
There probably is a loose wire in the handle near the switch or a wire off near the swivel elbow near the vac power head. With the right fastener tool to remove some screws you can fix it yourself ... Electrolux Centralux Vacuum
