Hoover cyclean brush stopped revolving

The belt may be broken or worn If your cleaner is not picking up fluff and hair from the carpet or has become heavy to push it is possible that the belt has snapped. This belt makes the sweeping brushes spin round underneath the cleaner and brush dirt into the path of the air suction. The brushes also give that 'groomed' look to your carpet by gently brushing the carpet fibre. If you pick up something sharp or debris gets jammed in the brushes then the belt may snap. Also over time your belt will stretch, so it's a good idea to change your belt once per year to ensure the cleaner picks up dirt effectively.

Brushes do not turn when vacuuming

More than likely you have a broken belt. If you try to spin the brush by hand with the vacuum unplugged and it spins freely, your belt is broken, or has come off the roller or motor shaft. If it will not turn freely or does not turn at all when you try by hand, you may need to replace both the belt and the brush. You can first look at both ends of the brush to see if there is a build up of hair or string etc. around the brush bearings. If there is clean that off and see if the bearings spin freely. Also, let us know what type of vacuum you have so that we can give you more detailed information that would help you better. Hope this helps!

I pugged the dirtdevil 087800 to do some cleaning and it started smelling like there a burn wire

If it's been over six months since belt replaced start there first. Belts may look ok and brush might spin but when sweeping the belt will slip on the brush roll.

I need to change my sweeper belt on my Dyson 14 Animal

When turned on and set to sweep the sweeper makes a loud noise like it has something stuck in it but the brush is turning abut not does not have a lot of sucking power. It started the other day when a blanket with tassels got caught and wund up in the brush and sucked up in the sweeper a bit. Tried to pull out while running and came out but made the loud noise. If I take off the brush then it does not make the noise when on. I think it might be the belt grooves are worn and slipping when the sweeper is in the sweeping on mode. Sorry, do not know the technical sweeper terms.

Sweeping part of the vacuum stopped spinning.

Is the belt stretched or broken? There needs to be a (not-stretched and not broken) belt connecting the rotating brush (agitator) to the motor pulley on the vacuum.

Will not ****

Willieturbo - Unplug Kirby, remove the nozzle and the bag. Use a coat hanger wire to make sure there is nothing stuck in exhaust (under front fan cover). Remove disposable bag - check if there is nothing stuck in the plastic miniemptor and bag fill tube.
If no clogs - check if brush roll bristles stick out of the nozzle by about 1/8 of an inch. For more info go HERE and scroll down to brush/belt installation instructions.

lilmissjen - If brush sweeps AWAY from the vacuum then someone must have worked on the unit and switched wires that go from motor brushes to power switch go HERE and see pictures #16 and #18

Good Luck,

Brush won't turn while sweeping

Does it smell like anythings burning if it's on for a while?

It could be that the belt is just stretched out and not keeping enough tension on the brush while its on the carpet. Once you tilt the vacuum up, there's no more friction, so it spins freely. I've had a few that did that.

My bissel pro heat cleane's brushes stoped. I checked the belts. They are okay. There is no sign of heat or problems around the motor. Is there a mercury switch some where in the handle so the brushes...

Depending on which model you have, you did not say, if the cogged belt goes to the pump pulley, the cogs may be wore away or and won't turn the brush roll. On some other moels, there is a brush roll motor that may have gone bad.
