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 a DC25 that I just bought in Dec 10. The last few times I vacuumed the carpet, the beater bar worked on and off. Now it does not move at all. I took off the beater bar to see if there were any obstructions, but there were none. Could you please help me with this. Right now my husband is saying that we should not have bought such an expensive vacuum (which he has said all along). I want to prove him wrong!! Up til a couple of weeks ago, it was working perfectly and I have loved it!
This is a good quality machine which I am sure wil last a long time in answer to your question make sure that the setting is set for carpet and not just flooring ..the head needs to be flat on the floor for the beater to work .I am assuming that thi ... Dyson DC25 All Floors Bagless Upright Vacuum
Hoover Model U8185-900 beater bar part keeps smoking and burning up We've replaced the part Hoover PCB Display Bridge U8172 three times and the vac beater bar works for about a minute then the part starts to smoke and burns out again. I've taken everything apart but cannot locate anything that would cause this part to burn up. I think if I did not disconnet immediately, he vac would catch my rug on fire. Help? I didn't send back the warranty card, so I can't get any help from Hoover. Any suggest
I'm not sure why this is happening. Perhaps if you would contact Hoover and explain the problem to them such that it appears that there is a safety issue with their product, they might be more cooperative. If that fails, I have had luck writing let ... Hoover U8185-900 Upright Vacuum
My beater bar on my Kenmore 116.25615506 canister vacuum keeps turning on and off when I vacuum rugs. The suction continues, but the beater bar seems to be shorting or whatever. I checked the belts and they look like new. Any suggestions? The rest of the vacuum works fine!

I accendenty sucked up the cord to my son's headset and it wound around the beater bar. I got the cord out of the bar but now the bar doesn't work. Any help would be wonderful. Linda
The belt probably broke and needs replaced. Make sure you get a new belt made for that model to use. Steps for replacement depends on what model you have, and are found in the manual. You should be able to find a manual for your machine using the ... Dirt Devil Vacuums
Terrible noise My dyson was working great then started making this horrible noise. I cleaned the bar but noise is still there. I discovered the beater bar went around three passes then froze and started horrible noise again. my husband got the bar turning but after 2 swipes vacuuming it did it again. Can it be fixed or is it time to retire it and buy a new one. Wendy Kiser
That noise is the clutch. A very expensive part and very hard to replace. When a problem with the clutch happens it's generally not worth the time and money to replace.I suggest getting a different type of vacuum, maybe a Miele or Sebo. W ... Dyson DC07 Animal Bagless Upright Cyclonic Vacuum

Dyson 18 slim the rotating brush bar will not rotate. Was working fine until I got the edge of a tablecloth caught in the brush, pulled it out ok but now the brush will not rotate fast, but will rotate by hand . Any ideas.

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.

Vaccuum issue I just bought a Eureka upright model 5892 BVZ, my concern is, I bought it on sale (floor model) and it didn't have a manual with it. I took it home and tried it, and although it appears to be working very well there is not dirt in the catch bin on the front of the unit. I tried the hose w/attachment and again it worked very well in picking up the cat hair, but where does the hair and the dirt go, I am afraid it is spitting it back out somewhere since I can not see anything in the c

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
The belt doesn't have to be broken to make the vacuum not work correctly. If the belt is stretched the vacuum won't operate the way it is supposed to. You can get replacement Dyson Belts here: ... Vacuums
