Having problems with your Vacuums ?

Dear VacuumRepair, Some months ago, a user reported having a brush on a Eureka4870 that stopped turning easily, even on the highest setting, and after replacing the belt. You indicated that you had an idea, but that it is a lengthy repair, but I'm willing! Can you please advise?

Hi Robert

Besides the presence pf some sort of obstruction, the only thing to prevent the brush from spinning jammed bearings

The bearings sit on each side of the brush. Dirt, dust, hair and carpet fibre can build in the narrow space between the bearing, the brush and the mount.

Turn the power head upside down. Most vacuums have a snap off panel for the purpose of cleaning. Remove it.

Pull the brush out and slide it out of the belt.

The end pieces should spin freely. If they don't, pull them off. Check on both sides of the bearing for build up. You may find something wrapped or that heat (friction) has glaze the material to look like plastic. Remove it.

Reassemble the brush. It should now spin free.

Reassemble the head, It should be fine

Best regards

Hoover Windtunnel U5750-900 Agitator brush is weak. It turns fine if I tilt the vacuum back, but it slows to almost 1/4 speed when it touches carpet, even on the highest carpet setting. I've replaced the agitator belt twice. The brush used to turn powerfully even on the lowest (Hard Floor) setting. Ideas? I should probably lube the agitator brush ball bearings, and re-check the belt, but, other than that, I'm stumped.
