Roomba Discovery My Roomba Discovery seems to work fine, mechanically, but it no longer seems to collect any dust. (The collection bin remains empty after the Roomba has circulated around the floor for quite a while). The brush has been replaced and spins normally. Does anyone have an idea why this machine's vacuum function no longer seems to work? I would appreciate any feedback. Jeremy


Did you replace the filter? when you remove the dust bin there is a small filter that needs to be cleaned, or replaced. You can buy a maintenance kit that replaces the brushes and filters as well, its good to replace them all regularly ... Roomba Robotic Floor Bagless Vacuum

I have a Hoover linx cordless stick vac. I have not had it but several months and it has quit sucking anything up. It worked great when I first got it. I was so excited at how well it worked. It had gotten hair wrapped around the brushes but I got that out and thought it would work better. It is turning and sounds like it is working but it does not pick it up. I could use your help please. Keely

I have a Eureka 5902AVZ and the brushroll does not work. when i remove the belt, which is not torn nor worn out, the motor spins perfectly fine. Though when i put the brushroll back into place, it shows that the motor is trying to spin, but with resistance. it seems the brushroll will not spin if locked into place, because there is no attachment on the left side of the brushroll that will allow it to spin freely with the belt. am I missing some parts or is there something else wrong?


Hi and welcome to Fixya. I am Kelly. \015\012\015\012You have correctly identified the problem as the brush roll itself. \015\012\015\012There is a bearing under each end cap of the brush roll. You can gain access to the ... Eureka 5902AVZ Bagless Upright Vacuum

My hoover windtunnel is not picking anything up all of a sudden. Also the roller underneith is not spinning. I've replaced filters and the attachment part is working fine, just when it's in the upright position it won't pick anything up. It also doesn't seem to be self propelled anylonger either. It use to **** everything up, including the dog. Please help!


The belt that drives the brush roll has broken. That's why it doesn't pick up and why it doesn't pull itself forwards. Check the User Manual (download from Hoover website if necessary) for information on replacing the belt. Good luck! ... Hoover U6630-900 WindTunnel Bagless Upright Vacuum

Agitator unit on Kenmore Progressive 116.25915503 won't spin. I have cleaned out all hair and string wrapped around it. Belt is good. It seems to spin on one side but stuck on the other. Could string be caught somewhere?


Pry the end caps off the brush bar, you will find hair and string wrapped up tight in the end. the bearing may also be shot, you can try and oil it up a bit to keep it spinning.\012\012<!-- from fixya rte --> ... Kenmore Vacuums

Poor suction The actual sweeper seems to work ok, but the hose attachment has some suction but not enough to pick up things I think it should and not enough to make the power brush spin. I've checked everywhere I can for clogs, but I can't see anything. And there doesn't seem to be any way to check to hose itself for clogs. I've cleaned out the container and the filters, but there's still a problem.


Check the inlet down by the brush roll, make sure it is open, if it is then the hose itself must have a clog. If the hose comes off, drop something like a marble in one end and see it it comes out the other end, if it doesn't then you have a clog. ...

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.

My Hoover Linx is not picking up anything. Nothing seems to be keeping the brushes from spinning but they are not working. It is only 3 months old. Fully charged.

I have a dyson - bought it 3 yrs. ago and the roller brush stoped working - doesnt pick up anything. Can you help? The brush doesn't roll or spin. Where can we take it to be fixed and is it under warrenty? THis


Don't worry it's probably just that the belt has broken or stretched. Your actually supposed to change them yearly. So if its been three years thats probably the case. Here is a link to the belt you need and a manual with instrutions: ... Dyson DC07 Bagless Upright Cyclonic Vacuum

I took the cover off the brush so I could cut off all the hair that was wrapped around it (vacuum was working fine, I just noticed the hair). I pulled the brush/spinner thing off one side, cleaned everything, popped it back in where it belonged, and tried to make sure the belt was in the proper alignment. However, when I turned the vacuum on, it makes a horrible noise like I'm sucking up rocks. What have I done wrong in putting it back together? It seemed simple...

Havent used for about two years. I had to put the belt on it. It doesnt seem to be sucking up very well and after about 15 minutes of vaccuuming the bag was empty. My house got really dusty. I know the rollers were spinning because i looked. I could hear some dirt going in but could definatly tell it wasnt working properly. Is it in reverse or something?


After two years you need to make sure the bag is connected properly and inspect it for tears and that the hoses are connected correctly and not deteriorated. Make sure the hose is clear. You should be able to feel the suction at the end of the hose. ... Vacuums

We have a new hoover bagless that is a couple months old. The pet hair attachment stopped working. I disassembled it found lots of hair wound around the various rollers and removed - painstakingly thorough i might add. Problem is the brush still wont spin and now the belt seems loose - I think I put it all back together correctly but wondering if there is a trick to this?

The motor in my Powermate (Kenmore Canister 116.27614700) is whining, high pitched, but still works. A local shop told me the motor is dying (the one in the Powermate that drives the beater bar) and would cost $150 for them to repair. The machine is only 1.5 years old and I paid $300...yikes. I think I can fix it but don't understand why the foam gasket that apparently wraps around the motor costs as much as the motor. This is assuming that part 32 (ks747156) is the foam I see glued to my cur


I think you are right!

When I engage the beater roller it will work for a short time (15-20 seconds) and then squeel loudly as if something is not engaging properly. I checked the roller ends and cleaned them but it seems to roll freely by hand while connected to the belt and then at a time it becomes very hard to turn by hand.


Sounds to me that the motor is shot. There is a main bearing the belt shaft connects to and it sounds like the bearing is seazing and gets worse when it nheats up. Soon it wont turn anymore at all ,once it siezes completely. These are rarely worth f ... Dyson DC07 Animal Bagless Upright Cyclonic Vacuum

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.

Hi, I have a cleanview bagless model# 3576-2 and my belt keeps breaking (it seems like one of the rings it should wrap around is missing) right now I have been wrapping it around the brush and a metal rod. Also, the dirt collected is going directly into the hose and not the bagless filter. What is going on?

Oreck XL21 just will not work at all any more. Beater is clean - belt is fine. Fresh bag - inflates. Took the thing apart - checked for blockages at intake, bag entry, and the tube. It just doesn't vacuum anything. No suction at all for anything stronger than air. I'd say it doesn't ****, but that would be ironic. Are these known for just "quitting" after a while? We take it in for maintenance as recommended to replace filters, etc. Is there some miracle trick to make it work or sho


Did you make sure the brush turns freely? Even though it is clean, if it does not turn freely with the belt, it will not beat the carpet and pull debris up into the unit.\015\012\015\012Another (drastic?) thing to try would be to take the unit ... Vacuums
