Brush Holders are Stuck in Motor Frame

NSS, Model M-1, "Pig" Problem: Cannot remove brush holders. Schematic: http://www.monsterjanitorial.com/nss/nssschematics/9091006%20M-1%20Rev%20A%2008-98.pdf Need to remove brush holders (part #4) to remove armature (60). However, the bearing housing (57) is too large to fit between the two brush holders, preventing armature removal. I have removed the brush holder set screws (7) and wire attachment screw (6). I could really use your solution for removing the stuck brush holder. Thank you!

SOURCE: Now that I just fixed

There are a couple rectangular holes on the bottom of the power nozzle, beside the wheels. These have tabs in them that need released with a standard screwdriver.
rogerpotts_10.jpg Once they release, turn the vacuum over and lift cover of power nozzle at the back. This pulls the front of the cover out of the lip on the "bumper".
Once this is done, you'll need to unscrew the screw at each end of the brush. Lift the brush out and thoroughly clean it, including the ends.

Check the wiring to make sure they're connected to the terminals of the motor. Also, check the belt for wear and tear. These belts can last for five years or more, but if it looks bad a good time to replace it is while you have the power head apart.
When reassembling the vacuum, ensure the belt is fitted properly around the motor shaft and brush.
Insert the front of the cover first, ensuring the edge fits neatly beneath the lip on the bumper all the way around. It takes a little manipulating to press the back into place. Make sure both tabs click into the locked position. Turn the vacuum over and reinstall screws. Try to rotate brush by hand a few times.
At this point, plug the vacuum in and turn it on. If the power head doesn't run, press the reset button. If the power head motor still doesn't run, it could be due to loose or disconnected wires that lead to the reset switch, a bad reset switch, or even a bad motor. The vacuum needs to be taken to the nearest Aerus Electrolux store for further diagnosis and repair.

I placed the new belt on the brush roller like i was suppose to, but brush roller will not turn forward or backward. What am I doing wrong?


Most likely the roller is frozen due to dirt and debris. Follow the instructions to remove the belt and roller. Clean the roller as best you can and at each end where the hard rubber holders are located. Add some WD40 between the brush and these holders and turn by hand until the holders move freely around the brush. Reassemble making sure the belt is on in the correct manner so the brush rotates in the proper direction.

The brush is not spinning so its not picking up any dirt


Most likely your brush needs to be removed and cleaned. Clean all debris that might be in the bristles of the brush. You will see a holder for the brush on each end that holds it into the frame of the vacuum. The two holders should turn freely. If they do not, spray a bit of WD40 between the brush and the holders and rotate the holders around the brush. Doing this will clear up the most common occurring cause of the problem you are facing. One other important item is the belt that drives the brush. Make sure it has not broken or stretched. If it has, replace it while cleaning the brush.
Good luck and feel free to contact me if you find this does not solve your problem.

Poor suction not picking up dirt from floor


Most likely your brush needs to be removed and cleaned or the belt is broken for the beater brush. Clean all debris that might be in the bristles of the brush. You will see a holder for the brush on each end that holds it into the frame of the vacuum. The two holders should turn freely. If they do not, spray a bit of WD40 between the brush and the holders and rotate the holders around the brush. Also replace the belt if necessary. Doing this will clear up the most common occurring cause of the problem you are facing.

The vacuum is making a noise like something is stuck when it is in the carpet position but not when in the floor position. I can't find anything that is stuck in the areas that I can see. I have cleaned...


As far as the roller brush goes, yes, it does need to be cleaned. Follow the directions to remove it and clean as best you can of all debris. On both ends of the roller brush there will be two "holders" of sort that connect the brush to the frame of the vacuum. These need to be able to turn freely around the brush. Clean them as best you can and spray some WD40 in between the roller and both the holders. Work the holders around by hand to be sure they move freely. I would also check to see if your belts are snug.
Please let me know if this does not help solve your problems. Paul

Brushes are not spinning we think it is a belt problem


It may very well be that a belt is broken that runs the brushes. However, the question is, what caused it to break? Most likely your brush needs to be removed and cleaned. Clean all debris that might be in the bristles of the brush. You will see a holder for the brush on each end that holds it into the frame of the vacuum. The two holders should turn freely. If they do not, spray a bit of WD40 between the brush and the holders and rotate the holders around the brush. Doing this will clear up the most common occurring cause of the problem you are facing.
Once the brush is cleaned, replace the belt that drives it and reassemble the unit.
Good luck and feel free to contact me if you find this does not solve your problem.

The belt keeps breaking. Like it's burning through.


Sounds like the beater brush the belt is supposed to turn has frozen up due to debris. Remove the brush and clean all debris. At the ends of the brush will be two fasteners that hold the brush in place, be sure all debris is cleaned from these and add a small amount of WD40 where the beater brush fits into these two small holders. Turn the beater brush around these holders by hand to be sure it moves freely. Reassemble with new belt.

The vacuum was working fine then suddenly the main brissels that spin to collect the dirt stopped spinning, the vacuum still has suction but barely picks anything up because the brissels are not spinning


Best thing to do is remove the spinning brush and clean all debris from the brush and most importantly from the ends of the brush. The ends of the brush usually have two holders (square?) that hold the brush in place on the vacuum. The brush is supposed to spin in these holders. If it does not, provided the belt is okay, the location where the brush contacts these holders need to be cleaned and lubricated with some WD40 or some 3 In 1 oil. Be sure the belt is in proper running condition as well.

I can not get the new belt to rotate on my vaccum. The roller will not turn when it is put back in place. Any suggestions?


If by roller you mean the beater brush that the belt is attached to, you might try taking the beater brush out of the unit and clean both ends. There should be some kind of plastic or rubber holders on each end of the beater brush. The brush itself is supported by these holders, but the brush needs to be able to rotate in the holders. Sometimes they get gummed up and need to be cleaned in order for the brush to turn freely. Clean them up, apply some WD40 and make sure the belt is properly attached. Hope this helps.
