SOURCE: Brush won't spin when position of handle changes

The belt for this machine is very specific and only one size fits. It is not uncommon for vac shops to sell the wrong belt because the proper belt is not available from normal supply houses, so they will substitute something they think will work.

Also, assuming you do have the right belt, check the tension arm that drops down on the v-belt when the handle is brought back. This arm has a wheel/bearing with a plastic "tire" or trim that rolls on the belt to tighten it. Sometimes, this tire cracks and falls off and then the remaining bearing won't have the necessary tension to tighten up the belt.

SOURCE: The brushes do not rotate

The brushs are driven by a turbine, if not turning, it may be bad. You can take it apart and try to clean it out, or just replace it. Also pull out the brush block and see if the shaft that goes up into the turbine is broken off, itis broke, then replace the brush block.

SOURCE: the brushes won't turn.

There are two reason why the "Turbine" will not rotate. A: It is an air driven device, so if there is not enough air flow through it, it will not rotate. I beleive there is a lint screen on the bottom of the unit that slides down and can be cleaned out. Make sure the recovery tank lid is on properly and there are no missing gaskets in the airflow path. B: The turbine is locked up. This happens a lot. You should be able to rotate the brushes on the block by hand will they are locked into the machine easily(this will manually rotate the turbine. If you can't then your turbine is locked up. What you do then is romove the hood. Screws hold it down in the front and it pops into place in the back. Take out the turbine. There are two screws on the top and two accessed from the bottom of the unit. There are a four screws and a few locks that hold the turbine together. Take it apart, but be careful as to how the gears and washers are arranged and not to lose any small parts. You can usually free it up by hand by rotating the fan on the opposite of the gear box. Once it is freed you can apply a lubricant to prevent it from happening again. I use spray lithium grease. There usually isn't enough lubricant applied in on the gears at the factory, so once you do this, you shouldn't have this problem again. When you first run the machine again it might blow a little excess grease out of the exhause, so to be safe don't fire it up on the carpet, when you first test it. The gearbox may need to be replaced if it is damaged and not just locked up, but this rarely happed. Also, try not to lean the machine all the way back(place the handle on a chair or something) over time it tends to tear the hose inside of it.

Good Luck

SOURCE: brush won't rotate when pushed forward

I had the same problem . The reason it acts like that is due to the cable that runs from the vacuum motor to the brush assembly has an intermittent open. My fix was to find the small cable that was causing my troubles and splice it. Making sure that I recovered the insulation. Of course my local repair station wanted to replace it for $75 labor plus parts and keep it for 3 days. I took it home and did it in 30 minutes .

SOURCE: hoover steam vac model f7425-900 filter is

The brush system on this model has a poor engineering design in that the brushes are running off an air turbine, which uses a steel bushing to spin the turbine which gets rusty from the moisture when the machine is being used. No long term solver. I would replace the machine with a Dirt Devil Platinum Force model

Why does the brush continue to rotate on bare floor setting as well as using hose attachments?


Hello! The brush roll shut-off feature is on select models. Your vacuum may or may not have this feature. If it does not, the brushes will continue to rotate while hose is removed or in use and at all times while cleaner is on. The vacuum must be in the upright position to lift rotation brush off the carpet when cleaning above the floor. Be sure the vacuum does not tilt forward when doing above floor cleaning. Hope this was helpful!

Spinbrush not working on eureka as1104


If the belt is intact, the brush roller ends may be so jammed (usually with hair) that it cannot rotate. Also, if the brush roller cannot rotate, the motor shaft may be rotating in one spot on the belt and eventually will burn it out. The solution in the case of the brush roller is to remove it and check for free rotation. If the ends are binding, the brush roller will have to be disassembled to remove debris.

The brush has to be able to rotate freely in order to work. If you remove the roller and its end caps you may find it is clogged with hair or other debris. Cleaning out the debris should allow the brush to rotate freely.

I don't know what model you own, but all the models I owned did have a driving belt for the brushes. Usually situated at the bottom and can be accessed by removing the screws from the bottom cover. Hope this helps!

Carpet brush not rotating


Did you check the drive belt for the roller? If not do so, the smell was the belt drive burning up.

Need to replace belt and cannot figure how to take it apart to get at the belt --- Took Screws off on the bottom but could not get to the belt


You have already removed the screws so lift the brush cover off. Then grasp rotating floor brush at both ends and lift. Clean strings,hair and other debris from rotating brush, paying close attention to the brush ends. Clean the debris from motor pulley and drive belt areas.Grasp old drive belt and remove from motor pulley. Place new drive belt over motor pulley and stretch other end over rotating floor brush in the space between the bristles. Place the ends of the rotating floor brush down into slots on the sides. Turn the rotating floor brush by hand several times in the direction of motor pulley. If installed properly, drive belt will center itself on rotating brush. Reposition brush cover and screw back into place. I hope that this helps you!

Eureka Model Whirlwind litespeed. The rotart brush does not turn or rotate. Should it turn or rotate in order to give better suction?


Hello fnintel, yes, if you are using the upright vacuum it should spin, ( the belt likely slipped off, or the brush is clogged with hair and the likes.)
However, if you are using the hose on the vacuum like a shop vac, some models bypass the rotary brush.
Good luck!
