Having problems with your Vacuums ?

My shark rotator brush won't spin. How do I fix it?


Answers :

Some of these answers are just a little silly. If your Shark Rotator's belt is not turning. Either the Brushroll is frozen due to hair or similar contamination, and/or the belt is stripped or broken. One of the comments stated that the belt might be stretched. A cogged belt will never stretch. Well maybe, but I have never seen it in 24 years of servicing vacuums. If the belt and brush roll all look good, and the belt is connected to the brush roll motor, and with it all assembled, and the switch on the main unit is in the brushroll on position, and there is still no function. If the brushroll lights are on but there is no motor noise or function you wont need to do this next step... Which is to get out your voltmeter, and with the brush roll unit removed from the main canister, check for voltage on the high AC scale on the pins exiting the the main canister while it is running.
\012If you find around 100 volts of potential on your meter or your test light shows power, then the fault is in the circuit card, or there is a loose wire in the powerbrush, so check for that too. If it looks like it's an electrical fault in the powerbrush, you will need to contact SHARK EuroPro for a replacement unit. If your unit is still under warrantly, you will receive that free of charge. Don't bother with contacting your local Vac Shop for help, Shark does not sell any parts for repairing these. If your unit is out of warranty, think ahead and decide whether you want to spend the money for the new powerhead. It is probably time for filters as well, so get a complete work up on the whole shebang filters and needed part before you decide. Your local vac shop will have filters available. Not the final HEPA, but the other filters, and probably for less than SHARK will sell them to you for. THE HEPA is still proprietary, but that may change soon. What do I think of the SHARK? It's OK for Light to moderate use in most homes. Best in homes that are already mostly clean, and just need to be vacuumed about once a week to keep them that way. For a serious vacuum see your local vacuum shop. I am here in Fallbrook California, and my personal favorite is the German made SEBO upright for most homes. For a little more than a Dyson, you get a real peice of refined commercial quality level equipment, capable of two decades of service in moderate home use. A Sebor hardly ever needs service or any sort of repair, and most problems can be solved by the consumer almost instantly right at home. Shop around for the G and X series if you like, and/or just give me a call or text, I will meet, and then beat any price you can find. 7604684578.
HI, it's Jim from Crucial Vacuum!

\012There are a number of reasons why your brush roll has stopped spinning on your Shark Rotator. Here are a few things to check for when trying to fix your Shark.
\012
\012First things first lets focus on the brush roll. Unplug the vacuum and turn it on its side. Look for any noticeable clumps of debris or hair strands that may be caught in the brush roll. Remove these obstructions, probably best to do so with a scissor if it's hair or long pieces of carpet fibers. After removing the debris try manually rotating the brush roll to uncover other hidden clogs. Another thing to take note of is the condition of the bristles on the roll itself. Are they loose or worn down? These are signs that your brush roll is in need of replacing.
\012
\012While checking out your brush roll you might as well take a look at your vacuums belt. This could be the other reason why your brush roll has stopped spinning. Your belt should be replaced about every three months. After regular usage, the belt will stretch out, lessening the tension on the brush roll. Lesser tension diminishes the brush rolls turn rate and speed. If the belt feels loose then it certainly is effecting your vacuums suction as well as your brush roll not moving at all.
