Miele vacuum turbo plus brush does not rotate

The turbo plus brush is not rotating. I have checked the hose and cleaned the brush attachment (taken it apart and cleaned it) but the brush is not moving when I turn the vacuum on.

    I have turned the vacuum on but the turbo brush still does not rotate. Originally, when I turn the vacuum on, the brush would be turning because the air is making it move. Can the belt become stretched out with age (I think my unit is about almost 10 years old)?

    Hopefully, the replacement will solve the problem. Thank you for your quick responses.

Hi Jeanakemi10,

The front brush motor will not engage until the power is turned on and the handle is in the down position. In the upright position the brush motor wont engage. Typical faults will be the belt is broken and needs replacing or the fornt brush motor needs replacing.


I hope this would help you ti fix the concern.

Thanks for using Fixya.

    More likely, replace the belt and the issue would be resolved.

    thanks.

Why does the brush continue to rotate on bare floor setting as well as using hose attachments?


Hello! The brush roll shut-off feature is on select models. Your vacuum may or may not have this feature. If it does not, the brushes will continue to rotate while hose is removed or in use and at all times while cleaner is on. The vacuum must be in the upright position to lift rotation brush off the carpet when cleaning above the floor. Be sure the vacuum does not tilt forward when doing above floor cleaning. Hope this was helpful!

Cleaning brushes wont rotate


I understand how important the brushes are when cleaning.

You may want to the check the pump belt for breakage for the brush belt and pump belt work in conjunction with the pump.

If you're still experiencing difficulty, you may want to have your machine inspected at one of our Authorized Service Centers. Here's a quick link to help you locate one in your area:

Can the Turbo Brush on a Bissell vacuum be repaired?


Hey Teri! If you have good suction from the end of the upholstery hose, the turbobrush should rotate as long as there isn't anything binding the brush. Otherwise, a new turbobrush will need to be purchased.

Here's a quick link to ordering one online.

I have a Miele STB-205-3 Turbobrush. After opening the brush cover using a quarter, I use a T-7 torx screw driver (shaped like star of David) to remove the main cover that is held by 4 screws.

There are 2 more screws holding the fan housing. After unscrewing them, you can take the whole thing apart and clean it. Make sure you clean all rotating parts as they collect a lot of hair, dust, etc,

Is the brush rotating?
Have you turned it over, taken off the bottom plate and cleaned it out?
Is the belt in good shape or does it no longer rotate the brush?
Is it on the proper floor/carpet setting for the surface you are cleaning?

Try these as they usually repair most vacuum issues of this type.

I have an old fantom thunder upright and need to take the bottom off it to see what is stuck in it. I don't know how to do this.


moz-screenshot.jpgI found a manual for the Fantom Stick Vac, model FS801 (your model may be different).
For "Cleaning Air Driven Turbo Brush", it says:

  1. Remove the turbo brush from the hose or extension tube.
  2. Slide locking latch forward, then tilt the top housing of the brush upwards. The top housing is hinged and will tilt up approximately 45 degrees only.
  3. There may be some dust, lint, hair, etc. on the turbine wheel. Remove as much of this as possible.
  4. You may also use the unit's hose with the crevice tool attached, and use the vacuum to remove any additional debris from the turbine.
  5. Ensure that the turbine wheel moves freely by rotating it with your finger. If the turbine does not rotate, call Customer Service for help.
  6. Once clean, close the top cover of the turbo brush and slide the locking latch towards the rear of the brush to lock.
There is also an image in the manual that might help. You can download the manual for free here.

Hope this helps!

Brush is not spinning


Usually, this is caused by the brush assembly end bearings becoming bound up with string, thread, and hair. Remove the brush and clean the bearings and end shafts. Oil them lightly with 3-1 oil or similar. Check the condition of the drive belt and replace it if badly worn or broken. Check the rotation of the brush by hand before installing the belt. Hope this helps!
