My Riccar 8850 stopped running. Changed the bag and cleared all hoses. Light comes on but the motor doesn't operate. I can turn the brush freely by hand.

I have a VAX V12 vacuum cleaner which suddenly stopped. The smell indicated Carbon Brush Problems. I contacted a service agent who told me that it was not possible to change the Carbon Brushes brushes on this model and they would need to change the Motor Unit.. To me this sounds very unlikely. Two questions please. Is it possible to change the Carbon Brushes and how do I get the cabinet apart which looks very difficult. I am well qualified electrically to do this job. Regards James Beech
The gear that turns the dual brushes on my Bissell Spot Lifter 1716 seems to be stripped. The belt looks loose as well, but when I take the belt cover and the brush assembly out, the gear that turns the brushes is loose and appears to be stripped on the cogs. When I turn the machine on the belt turns the gear but the brushes just sit there an vibrate. They make an attempt to turn now and then but not much. Need to get a schematic or the parts so I can order the gear if it is available and th

My Oreck XL upright is blowing out instead of sucking in. I changed the bag and cleaned the brushes; I also cleaned out the main "pipe." I looked for a place to change settings and couldn't find any, so I know I didn't inadvertently switch something. The brushes seem to be spinning at the correct speed. Thank you, Julia Byrem

Hello can you help me please? I have a Kirby G4 vacuum cleaner, It did work ok until it started to give off burning smell and lots of sparks from the brushes. I have changed these brushes, the motor still rotates but it still gives off sparks and burning smell. Do i have to change the motor as well? Can you help please? Thankyou Martin
Some debris, even sand or dirt, probably got into the motor, causing damage to the armature. If this is the case, you will need to replace the motor. The burning smell from the motor is generally a sure sign of a bad motor. ... Kirby G4 Bagged Upright Vacuum

I accidently ran over a sock while vacuuming underneath my bed and the belt broke (brush does not rotate now). I've always changed the belts in my vacuum cleaners, but the Healthy Home manual states that I need to bring it into a shop so that a professional repairman can change it. I find this ridiculous and now wish that I never bought it. How do I change the belt myself? PS I have already bought a replacement belt.

Last night as I was vacuuming, I noticed that the belt stop indicator light was on. I pulled out the hair that had gotten tangled around the brush in hopes of solving the problem. It didn't change things. I then unscrewed the entire bottom piece to take out the brush roller. I removed hair from the end piece of the brush roller and reattached the belt; however, I cannot figure out where the microchip is supposed to go so that I can reassemble the base piece by screwing it back together. It seems
Not sure what you mean when you refer to a "microchip" but maybe it is a sensor that works with the belt.\015\012Anyway, if you Google the make and model number of your vacuum you can probably get an exploded view or owners manual that might indicate ... Vacuums

My dyson dc 07 brush will not rotate. I have cleaned all hair and debris from around the brush and no change. I can not even figure out how to look and see if the belt is still attached. Suggestions?

What causes these things to become unbearably loud? We've cleaned evey filter on the machine, pulled every speck of hair and lint off the brushes, changed the belt, no clogs anywhere. I've totally (and I mean totally, down to the brushes on the motor!) torn this thing down and put it back together with no difference. Also have a Eureka bagless, and after minimal use, and almost anal retentive maintance, it does the same thing,to stinkin loud. Wish one would **** up the other to save a trip to th

Hi,My agitator brush won't run on my hoover S3590, I changed the belt, that didn't work. I don't see a possible cause in my book except replacing the belt. I think there could be a short, the brush will come on sometimes when pulling back and slightly lifting. Any ideas would be great and can I fix it myself? Thank you for any help, Bobbie
Hi Bobbie\015\012Take apart the electro floor head if you can and inspect inside - it may well be that there's clogged dust preventing the brush from turning and also check both sides of the actual beater bar as thread and tangled hair can often lead ... Hoover S3590 Bagged Canister Vacuum
