Have you tried running the brush motor without a belt on it? Does it not spin without the belt? If so, you may have worn motor brushes (not too expensive parts, but make sure you order both brushes, or make sure they are sold as a set). If your motor is in good condition (you can check the brush motor by hooking it up to a momentary power source NEVER apply constant power to a motor that is not mounted to either the machine or something to keep it from running away) There is sometimes a switch down towards the brush head assembly that could be bad.

    usually there are screws on the bottom, normally 6-12 screws. Once they are out, there may tabs on the outside of the base fram, lightly use two flat head screw drivers and pull the cover away from the base.. be gentle as this plastic is thin, and could break. You will also need to make sure that the handle assembly is in the down position as the cover can get caught up in the handle when you try to remove it.

I have a simplicity 7350 vacuum. The belt and roller have recently been replaced. It runs fine on floor mode and has no problems with suction. When I put the vacuum in carpet mode, I do not hear the motor...


the motor spins around a steel shaft that sticks out on one end, and the belt is driven by that shaft, belts are easily damaged and broken, meaning roller wont spin. Often a burning smell of rubber is noticed after motor shaft spins on stuck belt. cause is always hair./string/something at the three contact points. motor shaft and belt, roller and vacuum body become clogged. become familiar with taking cover off roller/belt, and cleaning Checking moving parts roller/belt come out easily and simple to clean...keep spare belts.

Hoover spirit 900 canister wont turn on?


see this causes and fix it. God bless you
If the vacuum cleaner motor does not run the motor itself might be burned out. Check the power switch first to be sure the motor can get power. Then, be sure the motor shaft can turn freely, that nothing is obstructing it. If the motor can turn freely and is getting power but still won't run it will need to be replaced
If the vacuum cleaner motor doesn't run the on - off switch might be turned off or defective. Test the switch with an Ohm meter or continuity checker.

Brush roller wont turn, motor is good and the curcuit board appears fine. No evidence of anything blown or broken wires either.


Judging from this parts diagram:
http://www.searspartsdirect.com/partsdirect/part-model/Dyson-Inc-Parts/Vacuum-Parts/Model-DC15BALL/3207/0645000/50026393/00001?blt=06&prst=&shdMod=

The brus motor has what appears to be a transmission on it.
If you have it apart apply power and make sure the shaft that fits brush is turning.
If the motor spins but the shaft does not you need to replace the motor asm
If the shaft spins the problem is with the brush or the way the shaft attaches to the brush

Sears vacuum beater bar wont turn...belt is good ..will turn by hand but motor wont turn it..


Check that the belt is not too slack and that the brush bearings are not too tight, or that some lint or thread is caught around the brush shaft.

Roller does not turn; I was vacuuming a rug and a string got stuck in roller-took it off but now the roller will not turn. suction is fine.


The roller drive belt may be stripped, worn partway through where it goes around the motor shaft, thrown off the motor shaft, or broken. Take the bottom plate off the carpet sweeper and have a look.

If the belt was damaged when the roller brush got stuck, then you get to replace it. On most of these, the easiest way is to put the new belt around the roller pulley, reinstall the roller, stretch the belt around the end of the motor shaft, then turn the motor by hand while pushing the belt on. If the motor also has a pulley on it, you may have to remove the motor screws to get enough slack on the belt, then pull the motor into place and put the screws back in.

Vacuum motor shaft too hot


Check the brush roll ends, will they turn easily or is one frozen. If so, you need to replace the brush roll. If the motor turns on, it and the belt are trying to turn the brush roll and can't. Also check the ends where the brush roll sits in and make sure it hasn't overheated and melted., If it did you will have to replave the base.

Bissell Proheat 2x Series 8920 - Brush Belt Metal Shaft Sprocket won't turn


Most likely the brush motor is bad and not turning, part #2036757, would sell for around $23. To get to it, start taking out screws on the top cover, that motor is under the that top access cover.
