If you are describing the problem accurately, you need a new brush and new bearings (bushings). Once they get worn to egg shape, no matter how slight, the problem will only get worse.

I put a new belt on my vacuum cleaner and it burned off because the brushes won't turn


Hair, dirt and dust can build up underneath the end caps on the brushroll which can damage the bearings if your brush roll has them. If not cleaned occasionally the debris will cause friction which can keep the brushroll from spinning freely which will cause the fast spinning motor shaft to melt the new belt. The old belt was likely loose enough it did not have enough friction to burn the belt. Many people assume they got a faulty belt when this happens but it's usually a problem with the brushroll. The brushroll is very important to getting dirt out of carpets and should be replaced every few years. I suggest a new brush roll and be sure to remove it occasionally to clean it and put on a new belt at least once a year.

Bissell heavy duty 9x cyclonic vacuum cleaner has loud noise when brush roller is turned on


Inspect the area around the brush roll. There may be something stuck somewhere in there. Remove the brush roll to see if the brush roll end caps will spin freely. If there is hair or debris restricting the brush roll may be causing noise.

Why does my brush roller stop and heat up belts?


Hi! If you have replaced the belt with a new one and your brush-roll is still not spinning, your brush-roll may need to be replaced. Remove the brushroll and clear it of hair and debris. Spin the end caps with your hand. They should spin easily with no tension. Inspect the area on the brushroll where the belt rests on for damages. To order a replacement brushroll click on this link. Search Results It could also be that the incorrect belt is being used with the vacuum. Make sure you are using genuine Hoover parts when replacing the belt.

Replace the Roller Brush. Sounds like bearing in it is locking up and the the belt is slipping and not turning the Roller Brush as it has a locked up bearing. You will need to go ahead and get a replacement belt just in case you have stretched the older belt to a bigger size. I had this same experience with a Hoover and it solved my problems of "rubber burnt smell".

My Hoover makes louder noise when the brushroll is on. I just cleaned but no result.


What kind of Hoover is this? There are a few things that will cause excessive noise and vibration such as a worn belt, the wrong belt, damaged end caps, damaged brush roll housing and worn bearings. Inspect the brush roll area. Remove the belt, if you have a spare, check the size. If it's more than 6 months old, replace the belt. Spin the brush roll in the housing, does it spin free or hesitate or not turn at all? If it spins with effort there could be debris under the end caps; if one end cap will not turn there is enough debris to cause the end cap to internally melt to the roller. If you cannot turn the brush roll by hand, replacement is your best solution. You should also inspect the housing where the roller spins, specifically where the end caps sit; look for damage to the slots in the plastic, it the roller will not sit snug this could cause enough vibration to make the sound you're hearing.

When we changed the belt the new belt broke right away and the brush roller wouldn't spin. My husband cleaned off the roller and got it moving slowly again, but when we went to re-attach everythin


the thing you call wheels are actually called roller bearings that fit at both ends of the brush-roll there probably seized up you can get a new brush-roll with bearings from the link below.

Roller does not turn


Hello,

When a Dyson DC07 makes this horrible grinding noise, it can only mean one of three things.

The Dyson DC07 uprights use a clutch mechanism to control the brush spinning when you change the floor / carpet switch. When you hear this grinding noise, it's actually the clutch slipping because it can not spin the roller brush. Most other uprights use a belt to spin the roller brush, and if something is stuck in the roller brush it will cause the belt to break. Dyson's however will make that awful grinding noise rather then breaking the belt, and will only make that noise if the roller brush can not spin.

When you hear this noise on a Dyson, it can only be 1 of 3 things. Either your clutch mechanism itself has gone bad, or the roller brush itself was not properly put back into the vacuum, or the brush itself has gone bad.

I'll be happy to walk you through step by step on how to diagnosis this problem and find out which one of these two parts is bad on your vacuum2_bing.gif.

Step 1. Make sure the vacuum is unplugged. Then turn the vacuum upside down so that the brushes are facing up. It's easiest if you put the head of the vacuum on top of a bench, or counter top. This is how the vacuum should look:

b45ef25.jpg
Step 2. You see on the bottom of the vacuum 3 plastic screws that are usually the same color as the vacuum cleaner2_bing.gif. If you're vacuum is purple, the screws will also be purple. Use a flat head screwdriver, and turn each of the 3 screws a half of a turn, counter clockwise to loosen then. After each screw has been turned (you don't need to remove the completely, just a half of a turn is all), simply pull upwards on the bottom plate to remove it.

13bda0c.jpg

Step 3. You should now be able to see the roller brush exposed. You'll now need to remove the roller brush. This will take some patience, and some work in order to get this brush out of the vacuum. There is a special tool that has been designed to help you get the brush out easier. I would try getting the brush out first before buying this special tool. The easiest way is to use a flat head screw driver and pry the belt up while pulling up and out on the brush. With some patience and some maneuvering, you'll be able to get the brush out of the vacuum. Here's where you should put the flat head screw driver on the brush:

9665ae3.jpg
Step 4. Once you get the belt out of the vacuum cleaner, it's time to test it. Use your finger tips to hold just the end caps on the very end of the roller brush. While holding just the end caps, use your thumbs to try and spin the roller brush. Does the brush spin freely? It should rotate completely several times on each spin. If the brush doesn't spin, or you feel some kind of resistance to the brush spinning, then this indicates that your roller brush has gone bad. Here's a picture of how to test the brush:

3a76171.jpg
If the roller brush went bad, then you'll need to purchase a new one. Here's a direct link to the roller brush your machine uses on our website GoVacuum:
http://www.govacuum.com/dysondc07.html


If the brush however was able to spin freely, and it spun multiple times, this indicates that most likely the brush was not put back in properly, or it could be a little more serious of problem in the clutch itself has gone bad. The clutch replacement repair is a much longer, more challenging repair to do. There is a very helpful video on how to replace the clutch below so that you may follow step by step instructions on how to change it. It was really helpful for me the first time I did this repair.

I think more likely however it's probably that the brush was not put back in properly, and this caused the brushes not to be able to spin, which would cause the clutch to make that horrible noise. Make sure that the roller brush is pictured like the brush above, you may also want to make sure that the bottom plate is put on correctly, this could also prevent the brush from spinning:

Here's a picture of the WRONG way to install the bottom plate. Notice the gap in between the two housings:


9739790.jpg
Here's another picture, that is the RIGHT way to install the soleplate:

If you need to replace the clutch, here's a direct link to the clutch your Dyson DC07 uses on our website:
http://www.govacuum.com/dydcclasfore.html

Here's the video on how to replace the clutch:


When you hear that grinding noise, it can only be one of these three problems. This clutch mechanism was so problematic that Dyson removed it on the second series of the DC07 models. I hope that this repair was helpful in diagnosing your problem. If you have any questions about the diagnosing, or the clutch change, please feel free to use the Clarification Request form here on the Fixya repair page.

I have a Eureka 5902AVZ and the brushroll does not work. when i remove the belt, which is not torn nor worn out, the motor spins perfectly fine. Though when i put the brushroll back into place, it shows...


Hi and welcome to Fixya. I am Kelly.

You have correctly identified the problem as the brush roll itself.

There is a bearing under each end cap of the brush roll. You can gain access to the bearings usually by gripping the browah roll end caps and rotate the caps in opposing but loosening (ccw rt / cw left) directions.

Many times I have found that there is just a mass of hair under the end cap that functions like a brake. Clean it up really well on under BOTH end caps.

Do a spin test by putting the end caps back on (Hold it horizontal) and rotating the brush roll with your thumbs. It should spin freely.

If it feels like there is still friction then your probably going to have to take the brush roll with you down to the nearest vacuum cleaner repair / supply shop and get 2 new bearings. Most shops will install the NEW bearings for you if you have the brush roll in hand. It is a much cheaper fix than the brush roll itself.

(buy a new belt too!)

Take care

Kelly

Dyson make noise after replacing brushroll


Try this open sole plate check make sure belt is not pinched, broken or binding, that thee are no strings or hair between belt & roller,& that belt it is centered on roller.

Also check make sure end bearings are seated correctly. (the parts at the end of the roller where they go into housing.)
