How can I get the brush roller to work

HI, it's Jim from Crucial Vacuum!

First things first, unplug your vacuum and turn it over. Check your brush roll for any large amount of debris. This usually comes in the form of carpet fibers, or hair strands wrapped around the brush roll. Try manually rotating the brush roll, this will help unclog any hidden debris.

Take off your vacuums bottom plate, this is usually held on by two screws on opposing sides of the bottom of your vacuum. Remove the brush roll and examine the belt to see if it is applying tension to the brush roll. If the belt is loose this would cause the brush roll to not work properly.

What's the quality of the bristles on the roll? If they look worn down, or loose then it's time to replace the brush roll itself.

Miele seb 213 quit spinning on rug

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 let's 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.

My sd40025 dirt devil is not a upright. it is the follow along, bagless vacuum. has wonderful pick-up but the brush stopped spinning when i was vacumming my rug..i love this vacumm but it is only the...

That's because you got something caught in the brush and it tore the belt (likely) or slipped off the drive portion of the motor (unlikely).
If you look at the bottom where the brush is, there are a bunch of screws to remove the bottom cover usually and can access the belt and motor to run the brush. \
belts are usually 5 to 10.00 get a pack of 2 if possible and don't do heavy rugs or get material caught in the brush lest it will happen again.. typically you can find vacuums in the trash and remove their belts, usually is only 2 or 3 types of belts so get one for free perhaps from trash.

Bissell Lift OfF Brush Roller Stops Rotating

They make the worst machines, the rollers are cheap and they make it so you cant take them apart to clean them. You don't want a dyson either, they aren't any better for pets. With all that hardwood floors you should get a good canister vacuum, sebo and miele are the best.

Brush roller does not rotate around

If the rotating brush doesn't turn, then it's almost a certianty that the belt (which connects the rotating brush to the motor pulley of the vacuum) is either horribly stretched or just plain broken. Either way, it needs to be replaced. The correct Hoover belt part # for your vacuum is 38528040 (changed from the original part number of 38528027). This is a very common Hoover belt, but would recommend your best source as being a local, independently-owned vacuum dealer dealer (as opposed to a deprtment / big box store, both of which carry very limited belts).

Bottom roller bush does not spin

Sounds as if the v-belt came off the idler arm or you broke the v-belt. Either way, take the 4 screws out of the plate around the roller brush and make certain the belt is there and that it sits on the idler wheel. If you remove the roller brush you'll see the wheel. Pay attention to how the ends of the roller brush go back into the vacuum when inserting it and put the plate back on. Also check the thicker main belt is in place as well, it's to the left of the v-belt.

Also, the roller brush should stop when you put it in the upright position. Next time just stand it upright so the throw rug doesn't get drawn quite so far into the vacuum.
