More than likely, there is hair or fibres caught up in the bearings binding them. There are usually 2 screws you can remove on the bottom of the vaccume that allow you to remove the plate. The back part of the plate usually locks in with tabs. Remove the plate, then pull out the brush. The bearing will come out of slots. Remove the bearings, and more than likely you will find hair or fibers wrapped around the shaft on each end of the roller. Remove the material, reinstall the bearings, roller and plate and you should be good to go! :)
yes it could be that simple. sometimes the belt will wear and stretch. Generally I advise my customers to replace the belt once per year, or as soon as something gets caught to stop the brush from turning.
Your belt number should be on the model/serial plate on the bottom of the unit there. 38528-###. I am guessing its a 38528-033 but could be 38528-040. Your model/serial plate will be more accurate.
It might be a slipping rubber belt, is the brush roller moving when you look underneath? If it's a self propelled machine there might be another slipping belt. Friction from fast rubbing rubber can smell like it is burning.
Okay. I would suggest that you have a problem with your roller brush. If the roller becomes clogged with hair/debris, the bearings will sieze, and sometimes even melt the plastic. the roller then has a difficult time turning and will break the belt. If the belt is slipping off, I would suggest that you either have a worn belt, the wrong belt, Or, your "windtunnel" (the half cylindrical insert the roller sets in) is missing. this insert has a "belt guide" that keeps your belt aligned. hope this helps!!!
Have you put on a new belt or just keep using the old one. If you haven't replaced it in the last 6 months, then it has stretched to the point where it won't stay on. Another cause is catching throw rugs, towels or something that gets in there and knocks the belt off.
