The brush wheel will not go around?

Make sure the carpet/floor selector switch is in the carpet position. if that is good then you probably have a broken belt. Unfortunately a complete clutch assembly will have to be installed. Just the belts cannot be changed

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.

Hoover windtunnel t series belt is loose- roller brush doesnt turn. Its brand new belt is slipping. we bough new belts and putthem on same problem. Can not find solutio in manual. Is the belt supposed to go around the "metal pulley". I know it goes around the little metal motor thing, then thru the guide and around the brush. What is the metal pulley??? Is is the larger round silver thing between the guide and roller?

My Bissell Model 3760-4 is not working properly. The belt has been replaced (and checked 3 times), but the brush bar does not move when the brush motor button is on. The little metal turning piece that turns the belt is turnable with one's finger when the belt is off, but when we put it all back together and turn on the vacuum, the brush bar does not go around and the burning belt smell returns. The portable part of the machine works properly. It's the brush bar. It has been cleared of hair, etc

I have a DC07 and the brush wasn't rotating and I had no suction at the brush but perfect suction through the hose. I noticed a large build up of dog hair around the brush so I took off the cover plate and removed all the hair, cleaned inside the floor/brush housing and cleaned out the hose. I also cleaned the filter and removed the other air access cover and made sure that they were clear. I put everything back and the brush still doesn't turn and there is still no suction through the bottom

I was vacuuming my room and all of a sudden I hear this loud noise, then notice the roller brush isn't spinning. Thinking too much hair was caught I separated it from the rod and hose to clean it out, but noticed that the roller brush didn't move at all while I was cleaning it. I've cleaned the brush before and it would roll around with little effort, but this time I couldn't move it at all. After removing hair and string I put the vacuum back together and started it up, but the noise continued,

Clogged hose A makeup brush (about 3.5 inches long) was sucked up through the vacuum hose. It won't come back through the same way it came in because the bristles in the brush are expanded. We can see the brush on the side of the hose that connects to the canister but can't get it around the bend of the 360 part of the hose... is there any way to take the hose apart more?

Last night as I was vacuuming, I noticed that the belt stop indicator light was on. I pulled out the hair that had gotten tangled around the brush in hopes of solving the problem. It didn't change things. I then unscrewed the entire bottom piece to take out the brush roller. I removed hair from the end piece of the brush roller and reattached the belt; however, I cannot figure out where the microchip is supposed to go so that I can reassemble the base piece by screwing it back together. It seems
Not sure what you mean when you refer to a "microchip" but maybe it is a sensor that works with the belt.\015\012Anyway, if you Google the make and model number of your vacuum you can probably get an exploded view or owners manual that might indicate ... Vacuums
Dyson dc07 The rotating brush on the bottom of my vacuum was filled with strings. I removed the brush by undoing all yellow plastic screws from plate. Removed all strings and replaced as best I could and it was hard to get the brush back in and the belt around it. I dont have my manual but it fits so it should be correct....? Right? No, not true, because when I turn it on and try to and vacuum (by lower canister with foot release) it makes that terrible ratching sound). Please help
The loud ratching is a warning to tell you that there is something stopping the roller bar from rotating this is a very common thing lay the machine on the floor front side down take off the bottom plate and just check the belt is in the centre of th ... Dyson DC07 Bagless Upright Cyclonic Vacuum
Miele S514 Solaris Electro Plus with Power Brush. Bought it in 2003. I love it, except the Power Brush just lost power so now I can't vacuum the carpets. I believe it is a SEB 212-2 Power Brush. The vacuum (canister) is Black. Any help is appreciated. There is no power to it at all. I've unplugged it, smacked it around a little too (mostly kidding) but still nothing.

Kenmore 116.23513301 Motor runs, but the brush will not rotate. Every time I hit the overload reset button, it will rotate for about a second then stop. I replaced the belt and cleaned around the brush, but the brush still will not rotate. Any help you can give me would be greatly appreciated.

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

The brush isn't turning. Have cleaned around ends of brush. Looks like the motor isn't turning the belt.
Belt could be broken or has come off. It needs to be taken apart to find out. Not a hard fix usually. Since you didn't mention that it didn't squeal, got hot and smelled of burnt rubber or the roller didn't spin this is my guess. ... Vacuums
How is the V-belt tension adjusted (Hoover Model U6439-900)or how do I know if the tension is correct? There seems to be a lot of "play" in the belt and I'm wondering if that is the reason the brush roll only turns as the wheels turn, regardless of the carpet height setting. And yes, the brush roll is set for carpet, not hard floor. Or is the cause of the problem something other than the V-belt? A new flat belt was installed when the machine was professionally serviced so I assume (?) that was a
The V-Belt is not adjustable. There are two ways the belt has no tension: (1) when the handle is upright, a mechanical lever takes the drive tension off the belt, and (2) the brush roll lever setting you described.

My Dyson CDC14 Animal just started making a wierd sound coming from the rotating brush area. I already cleaned around the brush, sounds like a fast rattling sound.

When switching the vacuum (DC17 Animal) over to the hard surface setting (so the beater brush is not spinning), the vacuum shuts off. I cleaned the dust bin and checked the filter. I also cleared the beater brush of hair or debris that was wrapped around it. It still shuts off. Ideas? Thanks.

Hi There I have got a Kirby 2 HG vaccum cleaner which is around 20 years old now. It was going really well until last week when one of the capacitors which are connected to the brushes blew up. There is two capacitors one for each brush. One of them completely blew to bits and the other one is still intact. My question is are they the same size and where do I get a new one from. I know it is an old machine, but I would like to fix it and get it going again. Any tips???

Most Vacuums has the belt in the middle of the rotating brush. This one has it on the left side and doesn't go around the brush. Mindboggling !
The belt runs from the metal motor pulley straight to the brush roll. To change the belt you remove the bottom plate, pull the roller straight up, then you put the belt on the metal pulley and then on the roller and you push it back into place. ... Sharp Twin Energy EC-TU4606 Bagged Upright Vacuum
