Most likely the belt is broken. Bad news regarding all Dyson's. You can't replace just the belt your self. You have to purchase a new belt assembly which includes the gears. And it wont be cheap. I would call it a design flaw but i am sure that dyson calls it a profit scheme.

Have a shark nv681 roller brush wont turn


Hello, this is Ava with Think Crucial.

There are a number of reasons why your brush roller has stopped moving. General maintenance to your vacuum is crucial and will help it work at peak performance.

First things first lets focus on the brush roller. Unplug the vacuum and turn it on its side. Look for any noticeable clumps of debris or hair strands that may be caught in the brush roller. Remove these obstructions, probably best to do so with a scissor if it's hair or long pieces of carpet fibers. After removing the debris try manually rotating the brush roller to uncover other hidden clogs. Another thing to take note of is the condition of the bristles on the roll itself. Are they loose or worn down? These are signs that your brush roller is in need of replacing.

While checking out your brush roll you might as well take a look at your vacuums belt. Your belt should be replaced about every three months. After regular usage, the belt will stretch out, lessening the tension on the brush roller. Lesser tension diminishes the brush roller's turn rate and speed. If the belt feels loose then it certainly is affecting your vacuums suction as well as your brush roll not moving at all.

Brush wont move and its not the belt


If the belt is not broken, most likely the brush roller needs replacing. If the brush roller turns freely then it is likely the pulley on the motor that drives the belt.

Why wont the brushes spin?


Most likely, the belt is broken. I'll bet the roller is covered with hair, thread, string. If brush roller is not routinely cleaned, string, hair becomes rapped around it and makes it more difficult for the belt to turn it. Eventually, the increase in friction and heat weakens the belt and the belt either breaks or stretches out. Try cleaning the rollers and replacing the belt.

Why the Dyson dc 41 roller brush will not turn?


Try these steps:
  • Check the button that turns off the roller brush to make sure you didn't press it by accident.
  • Unplug the vacuum and clear pet hair and other debris off the roller brush. It may stop as a safety feature if the roller brush is too restricted.
  • Make sure the belt to the roller brush is placed correctly and not broken.
  • Press the roller brush reset button. It may be located on the side of the vacuum's head, or inside the handle. The switch may need to be replaced if it's defective.
  • The roller brush is disabled while the handle is in the upright position, so tilt the handle backwards while testing the roller brush.
I hope that helps you!

The brush on ours wont spin


Take out the brush roller. (turn the plastic lock mechanism with a coin or screwdriver, pull out the plastic holder, and the brush will pop out). The brush roller has two white caps on the ends. Chances are, one or both of these caps have moved out just a bit, putting too much force on the delicate motor. Simply push the caps back firmly into place. Make sure the brush and the surrounding area is clean, put back in and It should spin .

No vacumn action


Is the roller turning, if not you may need a new belt and/or brush roll. Did you check the inlet by the brush roll?
