Either the touchpad is defective, or the motor is bad.

My miele does the same after a few minutes. I have now deduced that the brush rollers stop because the motor gets hot. The suction part is fine. So why is this brush roller motor overheating?

SOURCE: My brushes are not turning. We checked the gear and it is turning, but brushes aren't

Take the brushroll out and see if it turns freely just by holding the end. Also make sure that the belt isn't stretched out. Also, before putting the head on the vac, you have to pick the belt up on the "finger" that's in the head. You can verify this by looking into the circle that's cut out of the metal. When the head is affixed to the vac, then turn the belt lifter back around to the proper position and all should be well. If you still need help, you may call us at 1-866-509-1952. Thanks

SOURCE: brushes won't spin on hoover steam vac ls

I have the SteamVac Dual and there's a screen on the underside of the unit. It's beneath the brushes and it's red. You have to pull and wiggle it to get it out. With the machine unplugged, lay the unit with the handle on the floor. In the owner's manual ( http://www.hoover.com/pdfs/manuals/F7222900.pdf ) this is shown on page 10 figure 3-2. Clean that screen.
If they still won't spin, then take the brushes out. Again, with the unit on the floor, you simply grab the unit firmly and pull towards you. It's much easier to remove than the screen. I took the brush unit outside and blasted it with the house. You'll have to pull out whatever fur balls are clogging it but eventually you'll see that the brushes spin freely with the water squirting on them. Plug the brush unit back in and - in my case - they started spinning.

SOURCE: brush bar not spinning

Depending on the make and model the belt may be bad or if it has a clutch assembly then it has gone bad.

SOURCE: 5 yr. old Miele s514 Turbo plus's power nozzle

I had a White Pearl with same problem. As I moved the hose/wand the brush motor would start stop. Find out where the circuit opens up by holding one part and moving the part that connects to it - 1) where the hose plugs into the cleaner, 2) the swivel connection at the cleaner, or 3) the swivel connection where the wand plugs in. There are brass bands around the hose with brass "fingers" to make electrical contact. Mine had a bunch of gunk, dust, corrosion on the band at the end of hose that plugs into the cleaner. Pulled it apart and now it works like a champ. A bit tricky to get the pieces apart (hidden plastic clips which you don't want to break), but it can be done.

SOURCE: the brush bar wont spin on my dyson dc 25... i

Hi its Darran at Dyson.

Simply switch the machine off and stand it upright. Press the brush bar on/off switch once and then turn the machine back on.

When you release the machine into the vacuuming position, the brush bar should start to turn again.

If you still having problems, please contact our Helpline on 0800 298 0298 (UK) or 1866MYDYSON (US).

Kind regards

The hose is blocked, how do I get it off to unblock?


Hey, this is Tristan with Crucial Vacuum,

In order to remove the hose to start unblocking it, do the following:
1. Put the vacuum in the upright position
2. Press the release button of the telescopic wand and remove the handle from the hose
3. Push the hose elbow downward into the catch hooks.
4. Undo the suction hose by twisting it at the elbow.

If the blockage isn't in this location you can do the following to search further for blockages:

5. Open the service flap on the back of the vacuum.
6. Unscrew the screws and pull the cover free.

Below I have attached a link to the users manual for the Miele S7210. You should refer to page 30 to view the diagrams pertaining to my suggestions.

Hi Kevin,

Thank you for your inquiry. I am sorry to hear about this issue with your DC25 brush bar. Assuming you have already tried cleaning the brush of any obstructions, following the instructions below may resolve the issue:

1) Plug your machine into the power outlet

3) With the machine turned off, press and hold the brush button down for 10 seconds
4) Release the grey brush button, step on the foot pedal to recline the machine
5) Press the power button to power on the machine
6) Check to see if the brush rotates

I have a miele upright S7210 and can not find the replacement hose. Any ideas?


What do you mean by the replacement hose? The original part for your 7210 twist includes the handle grip to lock in to the adjustable wand, or do you mean the short hose in the base behind the brush roll?

We have a Miele Silver Moon vacuum that isn't


Hi dear.There are two type of attachments for this vacuum cleaners to pick up the pets hair,fluff & so on.They call it"Turbo & Power Brush".Turbo brush operates with machines suction & Power one operates with small electric motor which is built in the unit.They work with the same prenciple.There is a belt drives the rotary brush.OK.there are two small yellow screw underneath the unit.Please undo them,take of the cover & clean the rotary brush,check for the belts tension.It should be enough tight to drive the brush.If not ask for spare part from Miele in your country.After cleaning please put it back in order.To test it,attached to the vacuum.Turn the power on for Turbo brush,as long as suction starts,brush should start turning too.For the Power one,there should be power button on the handle to turn it on & off.Press it.It should work.On both of the unit,brush should spin good & strong enough to do the job when it's attached the surface you are vacuuming.Check the brush after each use,cleaned if neccesary. I hope that helps.Thanks.

Brush bar is not turning when I turn on my dison vacum


Hi There,

The Dyson DC15 All floors is actually a 2 motor upright, meaning the suction motor is separate from the motor that rotates the brushes. The first thing you should check is the reset switch on the brushes. Behind the brushes there is a little red pole, push this down to reset the brushes, and see if this fixes the problem.

If not, then you may have a bad on/off switch for the roller brushes. Try pushing the switch next to the main on/off switch that controls the brushes up and down, up and down, can you hear the brushes attempt to come on at all? If you could hear them come on even somewhat, this means that your brush on/off switch is bad and needs to be replaced.

If nothing happens when you push this switch, it still may be bad and not getting any power at all to it.

Does the machine make any sound at all when you try to turn the brush switch on and off?

Please try pushing the reset switch, then testing the on/off switch first. If neither one of these solutions works, please just use the comment field on the repair and let me know, and I can then walk you through some more advanced diagnosing of your machine.

Thanks,

Chris Jones

Dyson DC 24 pick up head wont spin


- Look for the reset button on the side of the brushbar housing - there should be a red sticker and a red button. Push it once. It's
not gonna stay depressed, it's gonna pop right out - that's normal.
- Step on the red pedal on the back
- Turn the machine on with the red power button
- Press the gray button next to the red power button - this is the ON/OFF switch for the brushbar - if it doesn't spin, press and hold the gray button down for 10 seconds
- If it still isn't spinning, remove the brushbar and make sure nothing is blocking it and withholding it from spinning
- For further troubleshooting assistance call the Dyson helpline, they know what they're doing

Powerhead on rainbow not working


If the motor is NOT running - press the red button on the nozzle (assuming you have the model with the button on the nozzle)
If it stops working as soon as you release the button - you need a new circuit breaker. If Motor in the nozzle works but brush does not spin - you have to replace the belt.

Good Luck
