    The brush (or beater bar) on my unit will spin but it is very weak and only works occasionally. As soon as the unit comes into contact with the floor, the brush stops spinning. It really is a recently purchased item and we clean it after every use. To have this problem for no apparent reason is frustrating. If anyone can offer any advice, please do.

    Thanks.

SOURCE: Dirt Devil Extreme Quick Vac - Won't turn on

Check that the filters are completely clear and not blocked - especially the top filter on top of the bin assembly. If its clogged completely brush it free of dirt and then reassemble. Make sure the inner cone filter and mesh filter is also completely clean. Then check the hose and main dust channel - something is clogged that makes this machine overheat and stop working - and often with this model (Hoover also make it in the UK under the Alyx name) its down to clogged filters or small clogs of dust in the dust channels. 
Don't forget to rate, thanks.

Is the suction tubing in the head assembly clogged, is the belt broke? If the if the belt looks good the brush may be turned off and you may need to turn the brush switch on.

On mine there is an air turbine that powers the brushes. There is a red screen that you squeeze and pull out to clean. Perhaps yours is clogged. If the screen is clear, perhaps the turbine has something binding it to keep it from turning. I hope this gets you on the path to repair your problem.

Brushes do not spin on my steam vac


We were having the same problem with the brushes not spinning.
How I fixed it:
I Removed the brush assembly by gently pulling on both sides of the assembly. I took a wide slotted screwdriver and inserted it into the slot (hole) that turns the brushes. At first it did not want to move. I GENTLY applied pressure by turning the screwdriver to get the gear to move and it began to move freely. I spun the gear a number of times using the screwdriver to make sure it was moving freely.

I reinstalled the brush assembly by aligning the gear that slides into the slot and gently pushing the clips back into place using equal pressure on both sides.

I plugged in the machine and the brushes now spin!

Good luck to everyone out there!

Vaccum has no suction


Need a new belt -- you might have suction but you need the brush to spin (hard to help without make or model, upright or canister)
