Carpet roller will not turn. Vacuum still sucks up dirt

\015 The carpet roller will not turn when i use the vacuum. Vacuum still sucks up dirt, etc., but the roller/brush on the carpet head does not turn. I hit the red reset button, still did not work. What should i do?\015\012Thanks\015

Answers :

It IS true that you can take the plastic cover off the top of the carpet head. But in addition to removing the two Phillips screws at the bottom, you have to manouver the wand release a bit. Loosen the screw and carefully pull the release back just as much as you need to, to remove the cover.

You will also need to pull manually release the four clips - two at the back and two on the sides - to pull the cover off.

However, I did all this and found that the plastic setting holding the roller canister in at one end had been burned out so that the roller didn't sit properly. Nothing I can do to fix it except order a replacement. The original problem was caused by getting carpet ends caught up in the roller. This caused the burning.
You may need to replace the belt that drives the roller head. They wear out and break, or maybe it has just come loose. Also check for string and thread wound around the roller wheel axles, that is a common "culprit"

When i am vacuuming my carpet....it sucks the dirt up when i am pushing it forward, but when i pull it back, the dirt comes back out on the carpet


This is due to a loss of suction. The roller brush sweeps the dirt to the hose area, but with no suction, when you pull the vacuum back, the brush just kicks the dirt back out. This is most likely due to a clog in part of the hose system.\015 ... Vacuums

My Kirby Heritage II vacuum is not picking up dirt up out of the carpet like usual, and I have to keep setting it lower to pick anything up. I finally get it to such a low setting that it starts sucking the carpet up and makes a whirring noise, and starts smelling. Every time this happens, we find the belt has been burned. We are wondering if the brush roll inside with the brushes that pick up dirt are worn out and too short?

Unbeknownst to me, someone took the bag out of my Kenmore Progressive vacuum and failed to replace it. I have been vacuuming without a bag for months, and today the vacuum stopped sucking. When I opened up the front to replace the bag, tons of dirt and dust came pouring out. I thoroughly cleaned the vacuum, put in a new bag, but still no sucking power. Just dust coming from the rear vents where one of the filters is. Is the vacuum ruined, or is it a simple solution of buying a new filter?


Sounds like you need to buy a new motor. All that grit and dust will ruin a motor and I'm surprised it lasted as long as it did.\015\012This is where a vacuum that won't run without a bag would have been nice. (Aerus for one) ... Kenmore 31913 Progressive Direct Drive Bagged Upright Vacuum

It's probably the brush "kicking" the dirt out, rather than it being blown out. This happens if there's a clog in the airflow system somewhere. This could be anywhere from the power head above the brush to the tank where the hose connects.\01 ... Dirt Devil Vacuums

Vacuum sucks up dirt and expells it back onto the carpet as I am using it. I have replaced the bag and took the bottom off to clean - even cleaned up the area where the dirt should go to make sure it was not clogged.
