Check the electrical connections to the motor and make sure they didn't come loose. Also most people don't know the motor shaft can become dirty and needs to be clean and shinny. Clean with steel wool.

Eureka TRUE HEPA Whirlwind Bagless same problem seems...roller just stopped...took everything apart and turned it on just in time to see belt melt...I was able to get the end caps off both sides at first...


If you are able to remove one end cap, the brush roller shaft can be removed and the other bearing is exposed for examination and removal of the hair that probably is clogging it. After cleaning and reassembly the brush roller should rotate freely. Clean any burned belt residue from the motor shaft and install a new Eureka belt.

The brush on my Electrolux Versatility will not spin. You can spin it by hand, but the motor will not spin it.


Hello, W/D here.
Since the brush will not spin, but the motor works, either the belt has come off of the motor shaft, the belt is worn past it's useful life, or the beater bar has seized.
1. Turn off the power (unplug).
2. Remove the bottom plate. With the plate off, use your finger to test the tension of the belt. It should be tight, and roll when you roll the beater bar by hand.
3. Remove the beater bar and belt. Inspect the beater bar, particularly by the bearings. Remove any twine, hair, etc.
4. Inspect the belt for abnormal wear. If there is any significant wear in the belt, replace it.
5. Reassembly is in the reverse order. Place the belt on the beater bar. While holding the beater bar close to it's position, place the belt on the motor shaft. Rotate the beater bar bearings to their proper position and install the beater bar. Replace the cover plate.

Best regards, --W/D--

Green light does not come on ans brush does not move. belt is good and brush does spin manually.


I assume this is a Kirby. The belt is not on the motor shaft if you can turn the brush manually. Remove the head, turn the belt lifter assembly clockwise to stretch the belt into a loop, place the head back onto the motor unit and latch it in place, then turn the belt lifter counterclockwise to drop the belt onto the motor shaft.

Miele SEB-213 powerbrush stopped working


Pull the head cover off to check the belt, if the belt is ok then it might be the power connection between the handle and the power head shaft. If the red light is on the power head, then its not the connection
because its getting power. Now some heads have a reset button on them,you could check this also.
With the cover off the power head, remove the belt, now turn it on, and be careful, but try to make the motor shaft spin,with one finger, because if it does start to spin you do not want to hurt your finger.

If the motor starts to spin,put the belt back on, if it does not spin again, the motor is too weak.
If it does not spin at all, the motor is bad.Hope this helps you,and you get it working.

After disassembling the unit to gain access to the hoses, the electric valve and the pump, I was able to determine that the pump was not working. NOTE: If you plan to test if the pump motor is working or not you must first remove the belt that drives the brushes from its motor pulley. This is done by first removing the C-ring that holds the pulley on the motor shaft, then slide the pulley, belt with it, off the shaft.This will allow the motor to turn without spinning the brushes. With the unit plugged in and turned on, pull the cleaning solution/water trigger. The pump motor has a short shaft sticking out and it should spin. You can touch the shaft with a finger and feel if it is spinning or not. I have no idea if the motor can be purched separately or if it is available only with a pump assembly. I also have no idea if you can buy either. I reparied the motor, but I will not go into detail on this at this time. Sufice it to say that the shaft was in dire need of lubrication. Most people would not elect to disassemble the unit to the extent that I did and I would simply recommend taking it to an authroized service center.

Hello,
I would advise you to ALWAYS to FIRST UNPLUG YOUR VACUUM before beginning any service procedure.
There are 2 types of Turbo Brushes, the electric type driven by a power head or power nozzle most likely used on a canister type vacuum or a central vacuum driven by electricity and there is an air driven power head. In either case the belt should be riding on the brushroll pulley on the end or if it is an air driven power head, sometimes the pulley section is in the middle, and the other end would run off the motor pulley / shaft. If you have a flat belt it is suggested that you change the belt every 4 to 6 months, if you have a geared belt, suggested change would be one year or so. I am not sure on the Brand of turbo brush you have, but you can refer to your local vacuum cleaner dealer in your area or the yellow pages, or contact the manufacturer for a phone # or website address, some times if you have a air driven turbo power brush it may be cost efficient to replace the brush instead of repairing the turbo brush. Just a suggestion.
Example: www.turbobrush.com – this may or may not be the website address not knowing the brand name.
Thanks, Don – The Vac Man
Go Ahead. Use Us.

Sorry it is not belt driven. There is a turbine that drives the brush. You have to remove the top cover to get to it. But if the motor smells hot, then you may have a problem with it also.

Bissell Proheat 2x Series 8920 - Brush Belt Metal Shaft Sprocket won't turn


Most likely the brush motor is bad and not turning, part #2036757, would sell for around $23. To get to it, start taking out screws on the top cover, that motor is under the that top access cover.
