Having problems with your Eureka Whirlwind Litespeed 5740 Bagless Upright Cyclonic Vacuum ?

Can't get the roller to spin

\015 The attachments work, but the actual vacuum cleaner (bottom) isn't working. The roller isn't spinning and I don't think I am getting a lot of air suction at the bottom\012I am also not fully sure of the model\015

Answers :

I suggest taking hose off and declogging it by using a water hose to make sure its free of debris. Plus check your belt first take off bottom plate the you'll be able to tell if belt is broken which it sounds like it is.
if belt is good and hose is clear and still brush wont spin then your brush motor needs replacing. hope this helps.

Just replaced the motor on it about 4 months ago so not too keen to get a new one. Any help welcome.

Wont re-assemble I took the bottom plate off to clean out the rotary bush and can not get the plate back on! I think it is the position of the roller but no matter which way I place it when i turn it , it flicks back into the place that means i cant put the plate back on!
