It's more than likely that you have to clean the brush and its mounts mainly from hair, but also other dirt. Then it should be fine. You might want to disassemble the piece to get a better access, but only if you are confident, because it's important to be able to reassemble it, too. :) You might also find it helpful to pour a few drops of drain-cleaner into the mounts and letting it work for a few hours then rinse with water(only the mounts!), dry off with a cloth and try running it.

Brush won`t spin on brand new vacuum


Hi! Many of our vacuums include a brushroll shut-off feature that needs to be activated in order for the brushes to spin. The brushroll shut-off pedal is usually located on the right side of the cleaner on the hood. Your instruction manual will show you exactly where your brushroll shut off pedal/button is located if your vacuum has this feature. Also, on many models the brushes will not spin when locked in the upright position. The handle must be reclined for the brushes to spin. Hope this helps!

Hi Janet. Thank you for asking this question. Your vacuum wasn't designed with a brush on/off switch so having the brush continually spin is normal for your vacuum.

Brissell proheata 2x doesn't have suction or the red brushes won't rotate on the hand tools?


Check the brushes for hair or some other clogging material and remove it. If the brushes can't spin freely, there is not enough suction power to make them spin.

Dyson dc14 brush won't spin


Liz thank you so much for the quick fix. Moving the carpet/floor knob a few times reset the belt. My method of slamming it against the dresser did not produce the desired results.

The brushes won't spin. I put new brushes on and it still doesn't spin.


Usually when the brushes won't turn it is due to a bad turbine. Insert a screwdriver into the square hole that the pin on the brush fits into, and see if it turns. If it is seized up, the turbine assembly will need to be replaced.
