Brush bar won't turn


Belt is broken or over stretched and needs to be replaced. If belt is good, then clean threads that wrap around the brush at each end. Then place a couple drops of motor oil at each end of brush where a crack goes in a circle around the brush.

The brush on Oreck XL vacuum is not turning


Frank,
I work at an Oreck store and my manager & I were discussing your problem and the only thing that we could come up with is wondering if you were putting the belt around the brush roller, the motor shaft and the post for the screw to hold on the belt cover. If you put it around the last item in the list, that may be your problem. I have seen many vacuums come in with the belt around that and it is not supposed to go there. The only other thing that I can suggest is to make sure that you do not have anything in the base plate that would be jamming the brush when you put it on. Hope this helps!

Where is belt located on Hoover wind tunnel vacum. And how to replace it. My brushes are not spinning.


Its usually located underneath the body of the unit, turn it upside down and you should see the beater brush. You need to open the bottom cover to get at the brush and drive belt.

HOW TO CANGE BELT ON SIMPLICITY 9.8 VACUUM


This is pretty easy. Turn vac upside down, remove brush cover, brush with belt on it pops out on each side. You must get the exact replacement belt so take your model number and any other numbers to vacuum repair shop. The belt around brush then around motor spindle, replace brush and cover.

Brushes will not rotate


I can't tell for sure from the pictures, but there are two possibilities - the drive belt to the brushes broke, or the brush can't turn due to excessive hair wrapped around the shaft. If the belt is OK but the brush does not turn, you should smell burning rubber.

If the belt is broken, you have to remove the bottom plate to expose the brush, remove the brush and the broken belt, and replace the belt, and put it back to gether. While you have the brush out, now would be a good time to clean it - remove the hair, etc from the brush and around the shaft. Good Luck!

How do i replace the belt on my hover


lower handle to floor and flip entire unit over. In the bottom near the brush, there are 2 levers that hold the cover on. flip both levers and pull up on cover. It will come out of the 2 wire holders that hold down the 2 front tabs.With the cover removed you can easily access the brush. Firmly grasp 1 side of the brush and pull straight up. This may take a lot of force as the brush may have been seated for a long time. Pull both sides out and clean the area underneath the brush. Also make sure nothing is wrapped around the brush or motor.
After cleaning you're ready to install new belt. Place new belt around brush. After pushing brush through the new belt, with belt loosely around brush slide brush back into housing 1 side at a time. The brush fits in very tightly. The ends have 2 pieces of metal that act as springs, these are installed facing the top. Make sure the brush is pushed down tightly toward the bottom or the cover will not fit right. Once brush is in stretch belt around motor tip. Replace cover by placing the 2 tips into the wire clips and close. Flip the latches closed and turn machine over. Lift handle and you're good to go. You have now completed the worlds longest instructions for a vacuum belt...ever!

I have the ultimate g kirby. the green the brush doesnt spin when i turn it on and the belt is on correctly. whats the problem


You will find videos at this site that might be of help to you.
http://www.kirby.com/Portals/0/videos.html
If the brush does not spin you probably should remove it and clean well. Also, on each end of the brush you will find a holder that keeps the brush in the unit. These should turn freely around the brush. If they do not, clean and add a bit of WD40 then manually spin the holders around the brush and reinstall.
Please contact me if these suggestions do not work for you.

I have a 550 that will not **** it drives around and thinks its doing a great job but does not pick up any dirt does anyone know what the problem is or where I can get it fixed ?


Have you cleaned out the dirt compartment? This compartment is very small and fills fast ... Roomba does not have a vacuum in it ... it just sweeps so make sure the brushes are working and in good order ... to test the brushes hold it up and turn it on make sure your fingers are clear of wheels and moving brushes before turning it on. Visually inspect to see if brushes are turning also check for hair and string around wheels and brushes.
dont forget to rate me Thx :) and good luck

You can check for the manual at:

I would suggest checking the hoses for clogs. Especially the hose right after the carpet brushes. Don't forget to clean off your brush. Hope this helps.

Bissel pro heat /brushes do not turn


Belt worn or hair build up can clog it from spinning. I've seen this on other models. Just remove the hair slowly. If the Belt is worn you can replace that from Bissel or any store that sells their product.


Check to ensure that the pump belt and brush belt are intact and installed according to the instructions provided in the User's Guide.

The pump belt is located under the belt access door on the side of the machine. This belt should be looped around the red pulley and the silver motor shaft.

To check the brush belt, please follow these directions:

Turn the machine OFF and unplug from the wall outlet.

Step on the handle release pedal to lay the handle down on the floor.

Remove the Tank-in-Tank and SmartMix Bottle and set them aside.

Turn the machine over to expose the brush.

Look for the red retainer plates, which hold the black brush arms in place. Remove the two Phillips head screws to access the toothed brush belt. Check to ensure the belt is intact and looped around the brush end, as well as the red pulley with the ridges.

Remove any dirt or debris from the brush assembly.
Inspect brush, brush arms, red brush arm retainers and red pulley for damage and replace parts if applicable.
