No not really if something is keeping the brush rolle from turning then the motor guard will keep it fron running .check if the brush roller can be turned by hand and freely if its real hard to turn then the roller bearings are bad or there are carpet strands tide up around the ends of the roller keeping it from turning correctly.feel free to call me if you need help.i don't charge i just like helping people and saving them money in these rough times.314-628-9153

My dyson dc28 brush stopped turning after a pop and smoked. Smelled like burnt plastic. The attachment hose still has suction and is working fine. What happened?


Hiya.

When an object gets under the machine it can
cause the brushbar to suddenly jam. The belt between the motir
and the brushbar however is forced to keep turning
causing the rubber belt to burn an then break.

After a few minutes, vaccum emits a burnt rubber smell. Checked the V-belt and it seems fine.


Hi there,

It might seem fine but the burnt rubber smell means that the belt is slipping. This causes friction between the belt and the motor spindle causing the spindle to get extremely hot which melts the inner surface of the drive belt.

Take the belt off and examine the inner side that loops over the brushbar and the motor spindle. You will find that there are sections where the belt has partially melted - they are usually smoother than the rest of the belt.

Belts don't need to break before they need replacing. They just need to lose some tension. This is what seems to have happened in your case and you should replace your belt.

Wet vac motor making noise and smells like burning


Hi I would suggest that the burning smell and the noise will mean that the motor is burnt out. You can get them pretty cheaply from the internet and they are quite easy to fit.

While vacuuming with my hoover mach 5 it all the sudden shut down


Hi, If it is warm to the touch, and it just shut down all of a sudden, I would say that the motor has an internal over load switch that is normally closed, and opened to stop from burning this vac out. It is a built-in safety. I would look at the roller for anything that may have hung up, but steady use for an hour just over heated the motor. Let it cool way down. Try and start it. Also, check the plug to see if you may have lost power there also. Let me know please so I can be of any help you may need.
Sincerely,

I have an Electolux Oxygen canister vacuum and the power head suddenly stopped working. It is only a few months old. Any suggestions.


1. You have to verify if it's simply the belt that has broken and the spinning brush isn't spinning because of it. Place your ear next to the top of the power head to listen for the power head motor. If electricity is getting to the head you'll hear the motor and know to inspect the belt.

2. If the motor doesn't run, look at the electrical pin connectioins in the pipe from the hose to the head. Are they burnt? If yes a new wand is needed. Also check the electrical connections in the hose handle and make sure they are not burnt.

Let me know if this helps

Vacuum motor shaft too hot


Check the brush roll ends, will they turn easily or is one frozen. If so, you need to replace the brush roll. If the motor turns on, it and the belt are trying to turn the brush roll and can't. Also check the ends where the brush roll sits in and make sure it hasn't overheated and melted., If it did you will have to replave the base.
