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 have a Hoover Turbo EmPower 4600 and the roller will not turn when we turn on the vacuum. The vacuum is fairly new, and hasn't seen too much use, but now the roller won't turn, so it's not picking anything up. There also doesn't appear to be a belt or any way to take this apart.

A cap on one end of the roller brush is centered and turns freely. The one on the other end is not centered and does not turn but does not look broken. It looks like it's supposed to be that way but it doesn't allow the roller brush to turn. How to I solve this?
It's hard to say definitively what the problem is here. Rollers usually have bearings at each end and they can wear or freeze up especially if they are exposed to water. When you say that the cap is not centered, I assume that you mean that you hav ... Eureka Altima Upright Vacuum Model 2996AVS Vacuum
Dyson DC14 roller doesn't turn but everything else works. The belt is on correctly, the roller is clean and it turns manually so I can't figure out the problem.

The roller will turn only when the knob is on "carpet", and even then only when the handle is tilted back ... Dyson DC14 Animal Bagless Upright Cyclonic Vacuum

Had my dyson root cyclone for about 4 years now, and in the last year it's had a few problems. About 4 months ago it started to make this awful grinding sound when the roller bar was engaged and I took it to a repair shop and they said it was the roller bar itself. The shop replaced the part and it worked fine for a couple of months and then it started to make the grinding noise again. I tried the clutch reset suggestion (turn it on its side and turn the carpet/bare floor switch slowly back and

The brush roller stops turning and I can smell the belt burning, then it will catch and start working normal. I looked under the plate to check the belts and they looked okay and no hang ups of string or anything. The only thing that seemed weird was that the smaller belt that actually attaches and turns the roller is a bit loose. The larger belt is tight but looks like its the one that is burning and causing the smell.
Better to replace both belts the smaller one is stretched out thats whyits slipping ,be sure to clean the old rubber off the motor shaft before replacing the belts.it will cause the new belts to run unevevly and go bad before their time ...
