SOURCE: brush won't spin

Dear Xana,I have had problems like yours before. More times then not the roller brush "belt" got damaged and needed to be replaced.
You should also check your roller brush and make sure it was not knocked out of alignment.

If neither of these solutions help,then it could be, your roller brush "Bearing Assembly"got damaged which would mean you need to either replace the "Bearing Assembly" if it is removable and if you can find that part.Or else you would need to replace the whole "Roller Brush".

You can normally tell if the "Bearing Assembly" is damaged by trying to turn the roller brush with your hands,if it takes a lot of force to make it turn,then theirs a good chance it was damaged!

These repairs are fairly easy to do, just read your Vacuum manual on replacing parts,also make sure you always have the vacuum unplugged while replacing parts or doing repairs.

I hope this info helps,EarlsOK

SOURCE: beater brush won't spin but belt is intact and ok.

For your beater brush to spin, you have to meet two conditions:
1) the vacuum cleaner has to be reclined (put your foot on the front and pull back on the handle).
2) The clutch actuator (the dial where you switch between BEAR FLOORS and CARPETS needs to be set to CARPETS).

If the brushbar/beater bar still doesn't spin after that, call the Dyson helpline, they will assist you. If you are saying that the brushbar isn't spinning because it is not picking up any dirt, you may have a loose internal hose, a blockage in the machine or the bristles on the brushbar are worn. Call the Dyson helpline for assistance.

SOURCE: Bissell Beater brush sporadic

I was having the same problem with my Healthy Home vac and happened to read a solution to another question on this site posted by someone with the user name "9008". I followed his suggestion and my vac works great again. There is a screw on the back of the handle near the cord holders that can loosen up over time. When this screw is loose, the brush switch (and therefore the brushes) do not work properly. I'm not sure why this little screw causes such a big problem, but it does. To find this screw, look on the back of the handle, it's on the edge, kind of behind the hose. You should see a triangle with a Phillips screw-head symbol embossed in the plastic. Tighten this screw gently (careful not to over-tighten and strip it!). Also, not a bad idea to tighten the other screws...I found many of mine to be quite loose. Hope this helps!!

Beater bar only spins when vacuum is locked & upright.


Your belt is probably stretched and can't turn the brush when it's on the floor. Replace the belt at least twice per year.

Miele SEB191 reverse suction


If you have had your belt changed lately, try reversing the way that the belt goes on the roller, or "beater brush". When you remove the belt, take note of which side of the belt is over top of the roller/beater brush, and which side is under the roller and, reverse it when you reinstall the belt.

The motor is spinning and spinning the beater motor but the beater bar wont spin


Check to see if the drive belt to the beater is broken. Also, remove the beater brush and clean as best you can. Add some WD40 at both ends of the brush where the hard rubber/plastic pieces are that hold it in the unit. Spin the beater by hand to make sure it moves freely.

My bissell helix cleanview vacuums brush doesn't spin


Sounds like the beater brush is frozen and won't turn. Remove the beater brush and clean off all debris, especially at both ends. You will find a square(?) piece at each end of the beater brush that holds it in place. This need to turn freely. Put a little WD40 on these where the center rod of the beater brush enters the small holders and turn by hand until they turn freely. Once this is done, assemble with new belt, making sure the belt is put on properly. If the belt is missing and you need to replace, I would still do the cleaning on the beater brush. It should move freely when you turn it by hand.

Beater does not work.


Not knowing what type of vacuum you have does not make it easy. However, usually caused by a broken belt or the fact that the beater brush is bound up by debris either being on the beater or having accumulated at the ends of the beater where the brush is supposed to spin on the end plates. After checking the belt I would remove the beater brush, clean it very good and put some WD40 on the ends of the axle of the beater brush and make sure it spins freely on the holding plates.

Miele power nozzle quits after 10 seconds of working.


Even though the brush is spinning, you probably need to replace the belt2_bing.gifbecause it is stretched. It is probably slipping on the beater bar.

Should the brushes revolve something got caught on the brushes when vacuuming up


Yes, the brushes (beater bar) should revolve. Even though the brush is spinning, you probably need to replace the belt2_bing.gif because it is stretched. It is probably slipping on the beater bar..
