Clean inside of brushes

Greetings from GoVacuum,

The Hoover SteamVac's are notorious for this exact problem. There are several things that can be causing this probelm.

First, what you'll need to do is take the brush block out of the machine. To do this there are 4 clips on the brush block. You will need to turn the machine upside down, and pull down on the brush block to where it won't pull out any farther. There are 4 clips, 2 on top, and 2 on the rear of the brushes. (See picture, I have circled one of the clips in red). Simply press these clips at the same time, and pull the brush block out of the machine. I'd say that 60% of the time that I see this problem, the main issue is that the brushes just need to be cleaned. If you have pets in the home, a lot of the time the pet hair will just be lodged inside the brushes, will prevent them from spinning. Use a pressurized water hose (garden hose2_bing.gif with spray nozzle is ideal) and spray each brush with water to dislodge any pet hair. You should be able to get these brushes spinning when you spray them. Spray each brush until the brushes are spinning pretty fast. Re-insert the brushes into the machine, and test to see if the cleaning has fixed your problem. If your brushes still wont spin, you may need to replace the brush block itself. Check the model number on your SteamVac which will be located on the back of the Steamvac on a stick with model information. GoVacuum.com does carry ALL of the SteamVac Brush Blocks on our site if you need to buy a new brush block.

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

The brushes spin very, very slowly and stop altogether sometimes - like they just don't have any power behind them.I've cleaned the brushes and also turned it on without the brushes inside to see if the female plug that the brushes go into turns - it does, but not very fast. My husband said he thought he smelled something - like burning. Is there a way to take the underside cover off and clean something?

How to disassemble the brush to empty anything that might be stuck inside of the brush? The motor seems to be overheating, all belts have been checked, all airways are clear and the filter is clean. The vacuum is vibrating and releasing a burning smell, but still sucking up dirt. There is nothing stuck on the outside of the brush, but is there a way to check inside of it to see if that is where a clog is occuring?

If there's a burning smell and the belts are fine, the problem is going to be hot wires causing the insulation to melt, or the motor going bad. Discontinue use and have it checked at a repair shop. ... Bissell 6594 PowerForce Bagless Upright Vacuum

My DC17 is only a few months old, but I've already had to clean the filter. Since I reassembled everything, I'm finding chunks of carpet fiber and dog fur on top of the filter inside the filter container. Iam getting slightly less suction from the floor assembly as well. I've checked the hoses, brush, and brushed out the inside of the plastic container, but hasn't helped. Ideas??

My Roomba only works correctly when I leave out the rubbery type brush (not the fiber filled brush)...... when I leave the rubber one in, it doesn't pick up & then finally stops & says REMOVED BRUSHES.....

The vacuum is making a noise like something is stuck when it is in the carpet position but not when in the floor position. I can't find anything that is stuck in the areas that I can see. I have cleaned the brush but it does not seem to want to turn. Does this machine need to be oiled so the roller will turn? Is there a way to check inside the motor? Do you think that because the brush won't turn that is making the noise? Do you know of any repair shops in the Lake Havasu City, Arizona area?

Your thermal cutout is tripping. This only happens when the motor heat gets very high, and the reason it takes a while to turn back on is that the motor has to cool down before it will reset.

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.
