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.
The belt is stretched and needs replacement.(Belt # 38528036) . The brush is not turning against resistance. ... Hoover Vacuums

My floor brush stopped spinning, I cleaned everything out as per your directions in other posts and following the instructions in the manual. Now the floor brush wobbles and has a hard time spinning when upright. Looking at the end of the brush, opposite the drive belt, the bearing-type end that the brush spins on appears to be off-centered. Is there an easy way to fix this???

I have a Bissell Pro Heat 2X carpet cleaner and the brushes spin, then stop. I turn it off and when I re-start, the brushes do not spin until I push foreward. The it spins and stops again. Both belts are tight. The brushes spin if held above the carpet, but upon contact with carpet it stops. Same thing on a hard surface.

Miele White Star SEB 204, powerhead stopped spinning. brushes are clear of debris, belt (#3854940) is not broken. Could belt be stretched so that brush head does not spin?
Yes, most likely the belt has stretch. Flat belts do this after a short time and need to be replaced when problems start with the brush roll not wanting to turn. Also check the brush roll, make sure that the ends turn freely, if not, then replace i ... Miele Vacuums

We are trying to replace the belt on the bissell 89q9 model. We purchased belt 8 and got in onto the brush however the brush doesn't spin anymore. Even trying to turn it by hand doesn't work. One end of the brush has a round end to slide in (clear end piece); however the other has a rectangular end to slide in (black end) so we don't even know how it ever turned. Any suggestions?

On our Hoover U6445-900 (Mach 6.9) we replaced the small belt that goes to beater brushes in front of unit. Upon starting, the Hoover quickly got hot and smoky. We shut it off and looked things over carefully, but the second try also resulted in friction heat on the belt. Now it appears the belt may have stretched due to heat and the brushes won't spin. Any ideas?

I have a Bissell pet hair eraser model #3920. It's been working great until last night. I went to use it and the brush won't spin. It also smells like it's burning.

My Dyson DC 14 is making the horrible "ratcheting"sound only when the brush is engaged on the carpet setting. I have cleaned the brush, so there are no obstructions, the canister is empty and properly on the unit. I checked to make sure all of the "traps" and hoses are clear of obstructions, the belt is on the brush securely and moves freely, the brush itself spins freely, but there is still the "ratcheting" noise. Any other suggestions?
Our DC33 was making the same ratcheting sound immediately upon placing the cleaner/brush head on the carpet. We carefully pulled the beater/brush bar out of the vacuum. Once removed, we pulled the black plastic end off of the center rod. We discovere ... Dyson DC14 Animal Bagless Upright Cyclonic Vacuum
The belt burnt out and it seems as though the red arrown does not release the belt. Like it is backwards from the green arrow. It had a burning smell and the belt broke. Then the second belt started to burn out when the brush roller wasn't spinning. Not sure what might be wrong. Green light will not come on either.
It sounds as if there may be a piece of the broken belt in there. Look carefully with a flash light and remove any remnants you find, using a pair of pliers if you have to.\015\012\015\012Also, remove the entire brush roller assembly and ... Kirby Ultimate G Bagged Upright Vacuum
