Dyson dc07 The rotating brush on the bottom of my vacuum was filled with strings. I removed the brush by undoing all yellow plastic screws from plate. Removed all strings and replaced as best I could and it was hard to get the brush back in and the belt around it. I dont have my manual but it fits so it should be correct....? Right? No, not true, because when I turn it on and try to and vacuum (by lower canister with foot release) it makes that terrible ratching sound). Please help

DYSON DC14 While vacuuming the living room, the rotating brush started making an awful loud grinding sound. We opened the intake port, cleaned the brush but to no avail sound still persists once you lower the vacuum handle in an attempt to clean. Was wondering if there was anything that can be done?

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?

My bissel pro heat cleane's brushes stoped. I checked the belts. They are okay. There is no sign of heat or problems around the motor. Is there a mercury switch some where in the handle so the brushes only turn when the handle is lowered?

No suction at floor brush. Plenty of suction in the tube that goes to the joint just before the 90 degree turn to go from the handle to the brush area.I lowered the handle so that the tube was straight and probed. The tub is clear. I cann't find the manual at home or on line. The Hoover.com site is useless in searching for a manual.

I have a Eureka 4800 series the Boss upright with a bag and Hepa filter. I love it! I was just vacuuming with the hose part and all was well and then suddenly the lower brush came on and a "burning" smell followed. Thought it was the belt so my husband was going to put on the new belt which I had on hand! When he turned it over, the "bar" that holds the belt looks as though it "shot through" the plastic side of the housing on the vacuum. There is melted plastic on the outside of the vacuum and o
