Brush wont move and its not the belt


If the belt is not broken, most likely the brush roller needs replacing. If the brush roller turns freely then it is likely the pulley on the motor that drives the belt.

Brush Bar wont turn


Once you put it back together recline the vacuum as normal use and turn it on. If not working still the brush motor is burnt up. Needing replaced.

Hi, I have a Sebo premier and the brush wont work or the green light come on. Can anyone tell me if you should get 240v on the connector from the main vacuum body to the brush head? I have tested this and...


I understand 240v to be 240 volts. of electricity- no vacuum should have 240v. that amount is used on elect. stoves, air conditions,welding machines and large electic appliances. Check the belt drive and the manual for the green light operation- I still don't understand the 240v deal.

Canister vac - the motor on the cleaning head cuts out while vacuuming. does it as you draw back the head while cleaning , goes off momentarily and ten when pushed forward engages the motor again. this...


Unplug the vacuum then pull the bottom off the head and clean the brush. Check for debris on the brush and around the ends of the brush. Insure the brush moves freely. Check the motor by turning it by hand to see if it rotates freely. Check the belt to sdee if it is tight. When belts get old the will sometimes stretch and won't work properly. Hope this helps.

Caught rug, motor overheated, the brush wont turn at all, but suction is still there ...is there something I can do to reset it?


Assume that the belt is broken to the power brush /head. Did you happen to smell burning rubber at all when the motor got stuck? The motor may have a reset on it, if it was not operating, but that is not the case, as mentioned. Look in your manual for replacing power head/brushes belt! WalMart sells most types or your local vacuum repair facility.. check the Yellow pages and let your fingers do the walking.. Good luck

The Brush Motor on my Bissell Healthyhome Vacuum wont start


I had this same problem. There is a screw that holds the top handle and the lower handle "together". If this screw is not TOTALLY tightly screwed in, this will cause the contacts in the switch to BREAK contact, and therefore one or BOTH motors may not start, or cut in and out. This was the fix for me.

Brush not moving, suction working


This machine is made for Sears by Panasonic. The power head, depending on model has a "gear" / cog belt or a standard flat rubber belt. First turn the power head over and see if the brush roller turns easily, if so you do need a new belt. To access the belt you will have to remove the hood from the power head. There are 4 screws, one at each of the corners to take out. Once the hood is off you will see where the belt goes and find "teeth" in the motor shaft for the motor / brush roller if you need a gear belt. If both of these are flat you need a rubber belt.
You can go to sears.com and find the belt you need with the vacuums model number.

Spin brushes wont spin and the switch wont turn machine off. I have to unplug it. 


for the spin brushes it is most likely the motor is fried if you smell something burning it could be jammed or the wires have be shaken off the motor terminals. for it not turning off you need a new switch.

My Rainbow SE vacuum was working fine until I ran over the edge of a rug and it went in to the nozzle. I immediately switched the vacuum off and proceeded to move the rug. When I tried to turn the Rainbow...


hello lilbutmunch1,
The brush is motor/belt driven so you probably either broke the belt or it shifted off the motor or brush shaft. I suggest you unplug it,flip it over and look for screws that hold the baseplate together.. remove those screws and seperate the baseplate to gain access to the brush and motor head. Once open, it should be fairly obvious what the problem is.. a broken belt, a belt that has shifted or the brush won't spin freely due to an obstruction. Hope this helps..
Regards,
Rick ( bigbutmunch..LOL)
