Welcome to Fixya! no spray at the rollers. Seeing that the hand tool worked I checked the finger switch for continuity and it was good. Turns out the red spray heads that clip into the unit just under the water tanks were the culprit. I popped those off and ran a paper-clip through them from the front. I must have contaminated the fresh water tank while emptying the grey tank. Works better than ever now, just thought I'd share what my issue turned out to be.

As with all rollers, it takes a few minutes of use to reach optimum
performance whilst the fluid is absorbed deep into the pile core. Use of rollers
on rough surfaces can lead to some deteriotaion in performance. For best results
it is recommended to use one roller per tub.

There is a tube that carries the fluids from the tank to all regions. Make sure it is not pinched or obstructed.

Also make sure there is nothing clogging the outlet hole.

Hope this helps you out.

    The lines are clogged that dispense water and solution.You must make sure that there is some kind of liquid in the dispenser
    bottle at all times. This doesn't have to be soap. You can fill it with
    water, Also you must insure that the tube in the bottle is installed
    and pointing up into the highest corner of the bottle. This provides
    pressure on top of the liquid so no air may intrude into the fluid
    line. There is also a plunger just under the fluid flow control knob
    that must be installed correctly or air will get into the lines. There
    are different styles of brushes you can get. My old brush did the same
    thing that you describe. My new one has 5 rows of bristles all the way
    across the roller. Not 2 rows with a gap in the middle. This is
    probably the cause of the line.

The brush has to be able to rotate freely in order to work. If you remove the roller and its end caps you may find it is clogged with hair or other debris. Cleaning out the debris should allow the brush to rotate freely.

Roller not turning when vaccuming


just had the same exact issue with mine - took everything apart - found that the swivel roller brush wasnt turning. it was not any belt issues or motor issues. took out brush roller - held in my hand by holding just the hand cap still - and tried turning the roller with my other hand. roller would not turn at all but is supposed to with no effort. on some models the end caps pop off but most are one piece and are just discarded and a new roller bought - seems to be $10-$20 for one for most dirt devils and under $10 shipping in north america. you can try something down the side of the roller and end cap like a razor - i did cut lose some crud and it works - but roller still stops on 2 of 4 settings on the rug because of this. i've already ordered a new one.

I have a Dyson Telescope vacuum. Everything works fine, except the attachment used for floors. I can feel air and suction going through the attachment, but the brush doesn't rotate or move at all....


If you have suction as you say, the tool is faulty.
They come apart so you can clean them. remove all hair and debris from the roller brush (use a coin to split it using a quarter turn on the two/three screws). Try turning the brush with your fingers. If it is stiff, it needs attention to the bearings in the tool probably. If it turns OK, then the mini turbine inside is faulty -- replace the tool.

I accidentally sucked up a thin belt that wrapped around the bristles and stopped the bristles and now the bristles wont turn


You need to remove the thin belt from the roller if you haven't already. Check the ends of the roller to make sure there is nothing there stopping the roller from turning. You can try turning the roller with your hand using minimal force.

I believe this unit has a switch on the front of the handle for the brush motor. It may cut off if the roller gets hung up. Have you tried turning this on?

In summary try cleaning everything off of the roller and then check for the switch that I mentioned. Let us know how you make out and good luck!

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.

I can't get the power brush belt on tight. Am I missing something?


I don't know what brand of vacuum you have, but the belts on most vacuums should be changed approx. once a year. The belt can look fine, but is stretched and won't have the necessary tension to turn the roller. It is possible that the roller is in need of servicing. If the bearings in the roller are fouled with dirt and hair, they will not turn properly and a new belt will not solve your problem. Take the roller out of the machine and turn the end caps by hand. They should turn freely. Once you've determined that the roller is o.k., install a new belt, turn the roller by hand to make sure that nothing is jammed and then try the machine again.
