Twirly thing under the vacuum has stopped spinning
\015 Purpose for Pets Dirt Devil. Out of nowhere the twirly brush thing in the beater bar no longer turns. There is still suction, and when I push the second power button (on the head of the floor attachment) the motor or whatever it's called starts up and it sound fine, but no action. The cords aren't loose or anything. It has worked like a champ for almost a year. Can you help?\015
There is a belt that drives the beater brush. flip the unit over, you can remove the bottom cover by removing a couple of screws. to one side of the brush you will see a channel where the belt should be. go to you local walmart, sears or hardware store and in the vaccume section they will have belts, on each bag of belts will be a list of vaccumes that belt fits simply find yours. with the new belt simply lift the beater brush out at the belt channel side and install the belt around motor shaft and brush. then place brush back in place , be suer brush guides are in properly. this should do ya.
