Question about Vacuums
My daughter's upright stopped picking up one day. When I laid it on its side and turned it on,the brushes would not move. She bought two new belts and I replaced the belt. There was either smoke or dust coming out when I turned it on.It's like the brushes are locked.
Pull the brush out and pull the bearings off the ends. Clean everything up with rubbing alcohol. Put it back together. DO NOT OIL the bearings. Oil will make dust stick and jam the bearings again.
