My Rainbow SE vacuum was working fine until I ran over the edge of a rug and it went in to the nozzle. I immediately switched the vacuum off and proceeded to move the rug. When I tried to turn the Rainbow back on the brush was no longer spinning. I've tried the reset button and checking the nozzle for any debris, there are none. The brush just won't spin.

Please help us with as simple and complete instructions as possible. THANK YOU VERY MUCH, LOUIE CAPLAN

Water leak I just bought this steamer a few days ago, and already I am having problems, when I fill the water tank that your suppost to fill the water runs out before I even turn the machine on. I have tried using plugs to keep it from doing this just so I can shampoo my carpet, this seems to work to a point, considering the fact that there are two holes underneath close to the brushes and one just a little ways back from that location. Do you know if this is something that should have plugs or

We are trying to replace the belt on the bissell 89q9 model. We purchased belt 8 and got in onto the brush however the brush doesn't spin anymore. Even trying to turn it by hand doesn't work. One end of the brush has a round end to slide in (clear end piece); however the other has a rectangular end to slide in (black end) so we don't even know how it ever turned. Any suggestions?

My hoover spin scrub brushes stopped spinning and i have cleaned intake filter and tried to turn the thing that spins it...when brushes are off the hole turns then as soon as i connect brushes the brushes will not turn what else can i do!!???
For some reason, when I tried to put the floor vacuum attachment back on and vacuum the carpet, I realized that the belt was not engaging. the belt is in there and not broken, but it is not turning the beater brush. it is just hanging loose around the brush. When I turn the wheel to engage the brush, it picks the belt up, but when I attach the vacuum to the attachment, the brush is just not turning.

I have a kirby sentria vaccum carpet shampoo system and I cannot get the shampoo suction head to work! It comes on but the belt is not turning. I have tried taking it off and looking at the assembly but no luck. And I have tried turning the belt engage lever to off and on to see if it makes any diference.
I had the same problem at first but figured it out. Make sure before you put it on the vacuum itself, that the shampooing unit is completely together. The belt needs to be taunt like it would be when the brush is turning. Once you put it on and turn ... Vacuums
Stopped running My mother's Oreck vacuum sound as if there was something bogging the rotating brush down. I pulled the bottom cover off and found nothing wrapped around or restricting the brush. I tried to finish vacuuming with the problem then I turned it off to move a chair and turned it back on it would do nothing. Any suggestions as to what could be causing the vacuum to sound as if the rotating brush is being restricted from turning. There was not odor of burning as if the motor was in a bi

Brush turning slowly while shampooing. It starts out fast, but after a minute or 2 the brush is not spinning very fast. I have powered it off and let it cool down. I just started out so I can't believe the engine is over heating, just doing 2 rooms, can't even get through the first room. If I take the brush attachment off, then put it back on and then turn it on, it spins fast, but after a a few minutes, it's spinning softly/slowly again. Kirby diamond edition

In my (almost new) Dyson DC31 Animal the rolling brush tends to stop like the bearing was kind of difficult to turn. I opened the side carter and removed the little belt. Without the belt the engine runs regularly. I cleaned the little knots of hairs trapped in the bearing but still the brush runs for a while then stops, tries for a bit then stops again. I even tryed putting a bit of synthetic lubricant with apparently no result. Could it be a defective bearing? Thanks for your help.

Brush not turning. Slots to install won't alow turning. Don't understand. My wife changed the belt, but the brush has a squared off notch on one end and an round notch on the other. I have the honor of trying to fix it, but the design of the squared off notch won't allow rotation.
