Question about Eureka 2961AVZ Bagless Upright Vacuum

1 Answer

Brush roller will not turn when I star to sweep.

When I first got this sweeper I loved it. The sweeper moved along gracefully without having any problems.
Now, the brush roller doesn't turn when I put the sweeper in position to sweep. I have checked everything that pertains to the roller, even the belt, I can't find what the heck is wrong! The carpet knob to lower the brush roller doesn't work. The dusting wand on the side, will not rotate to **** the dust off.
Did I purchase a lemon Vacuum??

Roller brush spins


The roller brush will turn as long as the sweeper motor is running no matter what brand you have. Turn it off as you return it to the upright position.

Is there a wrong way to attach the belt and the sweeper?? My Hoover Runabout is making a rubbing noise, like the sweeper is hitting something, and it's real hard to push.


take off the belt . clean any hair from brush roller make sure movement smooth . re position belt and move by hand to make sure roller is not skew , , rubber is riding sideways and causing friction .

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.

Lost manual on vacum need to replace belt


Remove the bottom cover of the sweeper head, then remove the brush roller along with the belt if still there. Clean the brush end-bearings--the roller ends and the interior of the bushings. Then oil the bearings lightly with 3-1 oil or similar. Place the new belt over the roller and the motor shaft adding any required belt twist (diagram on the casting), then seat the roller and bearings as a unit. Replace the cover and test the roller for running. Hope this helps!

Belt tensioner overheated and doesn't keep belt tight enough


Looking at the owner manual, there is no tensioner assembly.
If the motor is fixed in place and not loose, then you either have the wrong belt, or the brush roller is not properly installed, or the brush roller is worn out where the belt goes around the brush roller.

Bought a new sweeper and brush ( beater bar ) does not turn. The large belt is fine and turns. The small thin belt is also fine but does not turn the brush. It is either the wrong belt or is there...


Jim, To put tension on the brush, tilt machine forward when upright, move carpet selector knob to carpet. then turn vac on. Brush will only spin when vac is tilted back to operate. brush stops when upright and on to use hand tools so the er is no danger to carpet or persons with moving roller.

Won't start


Did you verify that the switch did not get moved to BARE FLOOR rather than CARPET. If it is not on CARPET the brush will not spin.

Hello,
I would advise you to ALWAYS to FIRST UNPLUG YOUR VACUUM before beginning any service procedure. there are not too many sweeper that actually get under the sofa when most sofas go almost to the floor and some uprights go flat and some sweepers but if the height of the sweeper or vacuum exceed the height of the sofa underneath then either one or the other cannot clean under the sofa if the height exceeds the sofa height limit without leaning your sofa back or lifting it up to clean.

Thanks, Don the Vac Man
Go Ahead. Use Us.
