Question about Vacuums
Check your brush roll for string (from the carpet) or other debris in and or around the bearings on the ends of the brush roll. Or check your brush height. If you have the brush too low/close to the floor it drags the brush down, telling the circut board inside that the brush spin is restricted.
Brush rolls often get lint, carpet string, and dust accumulated at the ends around the bearings. Pull out your brush roll and you will be able to take the end caps off either by hand, or with a 3/8 inch nut driver. At this point you will be able to pull the shaft out of the brush roll, and clear the debris that could be inside. Your bearings may have gone bad by this point.. All of this is inexpensive to fix, and easy to do. If you have any questions, just drop me a line. I have this manual on my windows skydrive, so if you need that I can provide that also.
