The brush will not turn but the belt is not broken
\015 A piece of hair ribbon got caught around the brush. The brush shut off immediately. I checked the belt it is no broken\015
Most vacuums with belts have a reset button on them that will trip so you don't end up burning the belt up. If you still have your user manual, look through it for the beater bar reset button. Power up the vacuum and depress this button. This should take care of the problem.

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 Mach 6 U5198-900 vacuum roller brush won't turn. I had opened the bottom to clean hair off the roller. the belts are not broken. When I closed it and turned it on, now the roller brush won't turn. I can push and turn it by hand, but not easily. Then I noticed the brush on/off switch is turned off, but when I step on it, it won't turn on. I was thinking I let something get out of place when I opened the bottom, but can't see what.

I'm using (or WAS using) a Eureka ''the boss'' model 8803. The belt broke, no biggie, so I replaced it with a Eureka model U belt, the problem is when I put the new belt on and turn on the vaccuum, the belt breaks again. I am also having trouble getting the brush roller to fit right when the belt is in place. I can't find any sharp edges that would cut the belt,nor can I find where any small bits may have broken. Anyone have a solution for me?
First, make sure you have the right belt, second, i am thinking that you are not lineing the roller up right, it will only fit one way. look at the ends of the roller and the grooves where it slides in, you should be able to see clearly how it goes. ... Vacuums
A small belt fell from underneath my bissell steam cleaner and I notice the brushes no longer rotate when I purchase the part where does it go? I tried turning it up side down to find out where it came from don't know because there is a compartment for the belt access but that particular bet is not broken. It's a very thin belt I can not make out the number located on the belt please help.
If you are unsure about where it goes it may have a diagram in the owners manual. When you say you saw a belt in a compartment are you sure that it is not an extra belt you are seeing as they often give an extra in the machine kept in a compartment l ...

My Kenmore canister model (116) 26212601 works in hard-surface mode (basic suction), but the brush won't spin for carpets, and when I try to turn it on, it makes a whiny sound and then turns off as it does when I need to press the overload button. I looked inside a bit, and the belt isn't broken--it seems fine. So not sure what the problem is. Thanks for any help.

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

Hoover WindTunnel S3765. The motor spins and the belt turns when I turn the brushes on, and the brushes will spin. The problem is that when I do this on carpet, the brushes stop spinning. As soon as I pull the "head" off the carpet, the brushes spin again. It's almost as if the vacuum suction is too great. I took the head apart and watched the motor turn the metal spindle that the belt rests on, and the belt turns as well.
