I had a shoelace get stuck in the beater bar. I turned it off, tipped it over and untangled the shoelace from the beater bar. When I plugged it back in the vacuum ran but the beater bar was not turning and there wasn't any suction. Is there a reset switch for the beater bar? Thank you for your help, Janet

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 an Electrolux Commercial Upright vacuum Model U129C. It has a device which turns off the motor driving the beater bar if something gets stuck in it. There is a simple reset button to restart the beater after clearing the obstruction. Just recently on flat dense low pile surfaces the switch cuts in after just a few seconds and turns the beater bar off. This doesn't happen on high pile carpet but the motor doesn't quite sound normal. There is no obstruction - the beater bar can spin freely
The motor is having a problem.There might be two reasons...either the coils inside it got heated up which will be needing rewinding or you can buy a new motor or there r capacitors attached sometimes u can make a check on that also if that's gone Kap ... Vacuums
My Dyson DC17 beater bar motor works intermittedly. I have to almost whack it on the floor to turn it on and then shuts off again. I have checked the belt and it is fine, also have checked for blockages. The switch to turn the beater bar on or off will not work when the beater bar motor is off. the suction is fine though.

I have a dyson DC28 vacuum and the power button flashes on and off and the beater bar quit turning. I turned it over and found some string caught on the beater bar which I removed, but the beater bar still does'nt turn and the power button still flashes on and off. I hope you can give me a solution to this problem.
I had the same symptom with my wife's DC28. The problem was associated with the cam driven height adjustment mechanism. The beater bar must rock freely up and down when pressing on the tabs that the end cam lobes actuate. On ours I found hair and cru ... Dyson DC28 Animal Bagless Upright Vacuum
I have a Bissell 3920 and the beater bar only turns when I'm pulling the vacuum.How do you get the end caps off of the beater bar to clean it out? This has happened before when it was under warranty and I was told to remove caps and clean frequently.I am afraid prying them off will break the vacuum.It also has very low suction and I have cleaned the filters and the belt is fine.Will cleaning the inside of the beater bar fix my problem?

Windtunnel first one used 6 times beater bar stopped working, took apart cleaned and belt was fine. this one had a reset switch for beater bar. had insurance at best buy so returned for a new one. used 2x beater bar not working and not dirty, no reset switch on this one., now back to the store for another? i don't even want the same one. I wonder how many they are gonna give me. This seems to be a common occurance.

My beater bar makes a noise and has a crack in the motor on the beater bar and is discolored--me thinks I need a new motor for the beater bar
Sounds like you're right. New motors are available at your nearest Aerus Electrolux store. They used to charge the same amount for selling the motor and letting the buyer install it, or for installing it in the shop. Worth checking in to.\01 ... Electrolux UltraLux 2000 Bagged Canister Vacuum
I purchased a Eureka C4910 last year and have a question that I am hoping you can answer. There are two motor actions with this vacuum, 1) the vacuum suction, and 2) the beater bar. The action of the beater bar is that motor is supposed to automatically shut off when the handle is in the complete vertical position assuming the vacuum is stationary, but then turn on when the handle is tilted toward the floor, assuming the vacuum is moving back and forth. The beater bar motor turn-on mechan

My dyson animal is hard to push on carpet - the beater bar is still operational. When I turn off the beater bar and run the vacuum on hardwood the beater bar stops moving, but it still ''rolls'' on the hardwood - it doesn't pull up like it used to. It also seems to not be picking up as well as it used to, although no blockages are present and the filter is clean.

The beater bar on my Dyson won't turn. The vacuum runs and suctions but the bar won't turn and the belt is not broke. The beater bar did get a carpet fiber caught and wrapped around it which stopped the bar and I removed the bar to cut the fiber loose and replaced it and now it won't turn

Kirby Heritage II. Beater bar does not turn. One end rotates freely, but the other sticks, preventing the bar from rotating. No obvious means to disassemble the end of the bar. Is there a way to repair this, or does this require replacement of the beater bar? Did clean the front end assembly, and removed all hair, threads and similar obstructions.
The bearing is bad on the end that turns hard. You will need to purchase a new brush roll assembly. If the roller is older that 4 or 5 years, it should be changed anyway. The brush strips that scrub the carpet loose their strength after many years of ... Vacuums

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. ... Dyson DC17 Animal Bagless Upright Cyclonic Vacuum
