The brush on this model is controlled by the on/carpet/floor switch and will only work in the carpet position. If the suction motor is running then it could be the roller brush motor, but it's more likely to be the microswitch which stops the brush motor when the handle is returned to the upright position.

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.

Why doesn't brush roller rotate?


The ends may be clogged with debris. You will have to remove the brush roller and remove one end cap to disassemble the roller for cleaning.

Brushes don't turn on my Panasonic Eco vacuum cleaner


Check to see if there is anything holding the brushes in place, i.e., thread, hair, gunk, etc. Or, they could have gone round on the ends and you need a new brush assembly. Not expensive and easy to replace. Just look at it when you remove it. You may have to jiggle the new one in place as they are sometimes square and just irritable when you are trying to put them in. FYI - swearing does not help! Oh, I forgot to add, check to see if the belt is broken. They are not hard to put in either. Buy a couple, it's good to have a spare:)

If it's been over a year since you've replaced the belt that is the first place to start. Stretch belts lose elasticity and will still turn the brush roll but when the brush roll is lowered to the carpet it may not turn fast enough to pick up properly. If you have good suction at the end of the hose check to make sure there is not an obstruction in the tube where the hose goes into the bottom of the vacuum to the brush roll. Make sure your filters are replaced at least once per year and the bag is not full or has a lot of fine powder dust in it which can clog the bag.

Hey everyone, first time on forums. I have a Eureka True Clean vacuum that I found in the garbage. I have disassembled everything, cleaned and restored it. Looks perfect now. Suction from hose is powerful,...


Change the belt on the unit, and adjust the height adjustment until the brushes are just touching the carpet. I know you mentioned the belt looks good, but when you get the new EXT-U belt, you will notice a size difference. Good luck!

I took the vacuum apart and cleaned it. Now there is an odor coming from the round filter and the vacuum is not picking anything up.


  • hi there
  • Does the odor smell like burnt rubber....if so you may have burned out the belt which is common. The filter can smell if you have pets and the machine will blow the odor back in to the room after the filter gets older.Check to see that the roller brush is spinning when it is turned on if not shut it off and try to turn it manually with your hands. If it turns very easily the belt gone if it is almost impossible to turn you need a new roller brush.You can replace the filter to help with the smell but if it is the belt you smell it will go away in time. Also make sure that you have the container on perfectly as if it is not it will not create a perfect seal and you will have very little suction. The other thing you can check is the hose to see if the suction is good through it. If the hose has good suction then the power head may be plugged with something and you will need to get a screwdriver and take the bottom plate off the same way as if you were changing the belt and then you can look for a blockage as well as access the belt and roller brush. I hope this was helpful to you ...good luck

No suction


you still have a clog in there something is keeping the brushes from spinning. Be sure to remove any hair/string etc twisted around the brushes. Make sure the belt hasn't slipped off the metal pin behind the brushes, this is what creates the rotation. The brushes have a hard plastic molding on each end that fit into the sides of the vacuum. Make sure you have these on the right way or they will strip out and you have to replace the housing and the brushes. Have you cleared any blockages from the feed behind the brushes? Be sure to take the hose and extend it out and run a broom handle or something down it to be sure you do not have something lodged in there. Good luck .. if you need more detail post back. These can be rebuilt if needed, hopefully it is just something lodged further down the suction canal.

Suction only works using the hand held mode, there is no suction when try to use on carpet mode,


There must be a clog in either the hose, dirt inland by the brush roll, or bad filters. If you have suction at the end of the hose, then look lower all the way to the brush roll.

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)

Help


as the hose fits into the base (if i am correct) the power at the base should be fine, make sure the base is clean and free from blockage, you say the brush doesn't spin, has the belt broken, if so replace it, (very cheap) and only a couple of screws to undo, the roller not rotating will effect the power of suction dramatically, start from there and see how you go if i have helped please rate me
