    genuis! beater bar working now, but suction ain't what it used to be. I remember when it would literally lift my areas rug off the ground. now I have to go over the same clump of cat hair 3 times before anything happens. don't know what else i can possibly clean on this machine. right now it's cleaner than anything else in my house.

Check your clutch to make sure it's engaged. There should be a knob on the foot of the vacuum that can be turned to stop the roller.

Kenmore intuition non-turning beater bars, beltless model


When you press the reset button does the vac motor start but the bars do not turn? If so the drive belt may be broken that drives the bars. If so you will have to replace the belt. If the motor does not start it is possible the belt could be jammed or the motor seized or burnt out. If it's not very old check to see if it's still under guarantee.

The most likely problem is something was not put back together properly in the clutch. You can move the belts by hand with the clutch out of the machine. Move the motor belt and switch the lever off and on and see if the brush belt is turning on and off. It not you will need to take the clutch apart and reassemble it. Test it before installing.

Beater bar is not coming on- belt is on, canister is empty. Vacuum runs but no beater bar


Remove the beater bar and clean the debris from the bar and the end bearings. Remove the belt (remember how it is installed) and check it for any damaged areas. Make sure the bar turns freely before the belt is attached to the motor drive. Hope this helps!

My beater bar will not turn. The motor runs but


This certainly suggests the clutch has packed up, although it is possible that the belt that runs from the motor to the clutch has failed (I assume you've checked the other belt, as it's very easy to see). Changing the clutch, and the motor-to-clutch belt, is not a job for the faint-hearted. If you want to see what's involved go to www.dysonmedic.com scroll to the bottom of the page and click on DC07 clutch replacement.

Beater Bar Belt loose and bar won't turn


Provided that the motor isn't loose, the belt should fit tightly. If you had reassembled the beater bar back in the vacuum improperly, the belt would be tighter, rather than looser. If you are sure that the motor isn't loose and the beater bar was reinstalled correctly, then either tha belt slipped back off the motor shaft, or they sold you the wrong replacement belt.

My Oreck beater bar is not turning. The bar is free of hair or strings, the motor is working, just the bar will not move


If the motor is working then check the drive belt. There's a door on the right hand side of the Oreck that comes off with a cross head screw. Check the drive belt isn't broken. If its intact then its a possibility that the beater bar has seized up - beater bars from Oreck are available although you should check EBay to see if you can get a cheaper part. Sounds like a drive belt problem though.

Beater Bar Does not turn


YOU MAY HAVE A POSSIBLE BAD BELT OR THE MOTOR THAT RUNS THE BAR MAY BE BAD, THE OTHER POSSIBILITY IS THE SWITCH THAT TURNS ON THE BAR MAY BE BAD. OR A WIRE COULD HAVE COME OFF THE MOTOR. i THINK YOU DO KNOW THAT THE BEATER BAR DOES NOT RUN WHEN ON WOOD FLOORS.

Vacuum turns on and suction in hose works, beater bar won't turn


If you hear the motor in the head running and the beater bar isn't rotating, you probably need a drive belt. With the power off, make sure you can rotate the beater bar freely by hand, if it isn't bound up.. then locate and remove the baseplate screws to gain access to the beater bar itself, you'll see a drive belt pulley system and chances are, a broken belt. Replace it with a new one by pulling the beater bar assembly out of the housing and plcing the belt onto the motor shaft pulley as well as the beater bar pulley.. nest the beater bar back into the holder and reinstall the cover. Hope that helps !

Beater bar belt too loose


You need a new belt, they stretch after awhile and will slip.
