If the power head is spinning when you lift up the handle then the head could be blocked with dirt. You may need to undo the floor head to see if the entire brush roll is clear as well as the main dirt channel/turbine wheel. Ensure that everything is clear before assuming it may be the belt that needs to be replaced.
You may well have to call or contact the main company who makes Broan Nutone models for them to send out / query the power head problem.

How do I change the belt


turn the power head upside down. There should be a latch to open. the belt goes from the center of the floor brush to a piston on the motor. It helps if you have the old belt to get the correct size.

I have a CT600 power brush that would not power up. Thinking the motor was bad in it, I replaced it with a new CT700 power brush, I am still experiencing the same problem the power brush itself does not...


First try connecting the power nozzle directly to the hose. If it works, the problem is due to a broken wire or faulty connection in the wands. At least one wand will need to be replaced.
My guess is it's probably due to a broken or disconnected wire. This could be in the hose (most likely), the wands, or the tank wiring itself. You can test the hose wiring by using a multimeter or continuity tester. A tester may be easier for you to use, and will provide the info needed.
Disconnect both ends of the hose, sit down, and lay the ends on your lap. Touch one end of the probe to a terminal on one end of the hose. Place other probe on a connector at the other end. One connector will light, the other won't. Now repeat with the other terminal at the first end of the hose and repeat. The terminals will read opposite the reading in the first test. If the light fails to turn on with either test, it's a broken wire in the hose. This is most likely near/at the handle end, or at the wall end. In some cases it can be repaired, but not always.
It could also be due to a faulty switch.
For a definite diagnosis, take the unit, the hose, power nozzle etc. to a repair center.

It's possible you simply need a new belt or roller brush. Place the power nozzle upside-down turn the vacuum on. Ensure the brush turns. If it doesn't, the belt has broken or is too worn to turn it. Replace the belt. Make sure the tension is properly set prior to reassembling the power nozzle.
Next, with the power nozzle upside down, run the flat of your palm across the brush area. If you can barely feel the bristles, it needs replaced. A good brush will loosen the yarn and strings, but needs to be cleaned periodically.
As long as the powerhead motor is running, there is no need to replace it. If it's not running, look for a reset button and press it. There could also be a broken wire, loose connection, or bad switch causing a power head motor to not operate..

See were to put the swr driver on both sides and not sure where to pull up


Hello,

I'm pretty sure you're asking about a Kenmore canister vacuum,

Here's what you'll need to replace a belt on a Kenmore2_bing.gif canister vacuum:

- Phillips Head Screw Driver
- Flat Head Screw Driver

There are two different types of belts2_bing.gif that are used on a Kenmore Canister. One of them is called a cogged belt, which has little teeth on the inside of the belt. The other is called a serpantine belt, which looks like a car belt, and has little grooves on the inside of the. You'll be able to tell which on yours takes after opening up the power nozzle.

This is the Cogged or Geared Belt with little teeth inside the belt:
Kenmore Canister Geared Belt for Canister Vacuums

This is the other Serpantine Belt that has little grooves on the inside of the belt:
Kenmore Canister Serpantine Belt for Canister Vacuums

Here's how you can replace the belt on your Kenmore Canister vacuum cleaner2_bing.gif. First, before taking apart the power nozzle to change the belt, try pressing the overload protection system reset switch. This overload protection feature is designed to shut off the power nozzle if something gets stuck in the brushes, to prevent the belt from breaking.

Step 1. If you're power nozzle is a square shaped nozzle like the nozzle that I took a picture of above, then you'll need to first remove the headlight cover before you can access the roller brush and belt. Simply squeeze both sides of the headlight housing, and while squeezing, lift upwards with your fingers exactly where my fingers are located in this picture:

Step 2. After the headlight cover has been removed, you'll see two screws underneath of the headlight cover, directly in front of the neck of the power nozzle. You'll need to remove both of these screws. I have circled these screws in red:

Step 3. After both of these screws have been removed, turn the power head upside down, so the roller brush is facing upwards. You should see writing that points to an area to put your flat head screw driver. You'll need to put the flat head screw driver down inside of the nozzle, and pry the top blue housing from the black bottom housing. Here's where the screw driver should go on the left side0723429.jpg:

Here's a picture of the screwdriver prying off the right side:

Step 4. Now turn the power nozzle back over on top, and remove the top housing of the nozzle. You may have to push the handle release pedal in order to take the top housing off.

You need to change the belt. When it does that it means it is worn. You can get replacement belts for it here:

How do you open up the power head to check the belt?


Turn the power head over so the bottom is facing up. On the bottom towards the back there are two holes (one on each side) where you can get to the access screws. Remove the two screws (you'll need a phillips screwdriver). With the screws removed you can now remove the top cover from the base by pulling out on the two clips on each side of the power head. With the top cover removed you can get to the belt and roller brush. If you need a belt for this model you can get it here:

Power Unit VX475 Stops


Checked and found that motor is definitely overheating for unknown reason. Since power unit is still under warranty, solution was to contact local service company for NuTone power unit and have them come out and fix/replace it free of charge.
