Having problems with your Kirby Heritage II Vacuum ?
Roller brush doesn't move
\015 I just bought a Kirby Heritage II off of Ebay, and the roller brush isn't moving when turned on. The suction works. I have turned it on with out the roller bruch attachment on and the knob that holds the belt so it can turn doesn't turn when I do this.\015
Here is a online guide....it's for the G series Kirbys. They're similar enough that it should help. Pay special attention to the belt lifting process...it's exactly the same as for the Heritage II, and it's also where I think your problem lies. I have a Heritage II manual available too! Hope I have helped...

I was vacuuming my room and all of a sudden I hear this loud noise, then notice the roller brush isn't spinning.

After removing hair and string I put the vacuum back together and started it up, but the noise continued,

My Hoover Windtunnel Mach 6.9 brush roller quit working. Upon investigating I found that the idler arm pulley was broken so I managed to replace that.
