SOURCE: beater bar brush stopped working...

Does the power head motor stop, or does the brush roll stop. If it is the brush roll stopping, replace the belt and/or the brush roll. If it is the motor, you may need to clean out around the motor, it may not be getting enough air to cool causing it to overheat and stopping. That the brush roll plate off, take out the screw, and the top will come off, then you can check to see if cleaning is the answer, if not, the motor may be bad.

SOURCE: beater bar has stopped turning

All beater and rotating brush bars are fairly easy to get to with a couple of screw on the bottom of your wan. They are driven by a belt and these belts come off, break, or the bar itself is stuck with rug material. Unplug your vacumn and get our screwdriver. It;s easy to figure out once inside the wan.

    SOURCE: how to fix beater bar on dc 14

    Hi Brenda,

    I'm sorry to hear you're having difficulties with your DC14. If the brushbar doesn't seem to be rotating, please check you have the brush control set to 'Carpets', rather than 'Hard Floors'. The brush control is on the left-hand side of the cleaner head when the machine is facing you - it may help to take a look at the user guide:

    http://media.dyson.com/downloads/us/floorcare/manuals/dc14_opmanual_usa2007.pdf

    Please note, the brushbar is designed not to rotate when the machine is standing in the upright position, so make sure you have it reclined into the vacuuming position before testing it.

    If there is no suction from the hose, there may be a blockage in the wand, hose or U-bend - to locate and remove any blockages, please follow the steps shown in our online support guide:

    http://www.dyson.com/support/help.asp?article=626&product=DC14-ALLFLOORS_US

    You may also need to wash the filter - in normal use, this needs to be done at least once every 3-6 months, as shown in the video below. Use cold water without detergent, and allow at least 12 hours for it to dry completely before replacing it.

    This should resolve your issues, but if you need any further assistance or advice, please call us free on 0800 298 0298 (UK), or 1-866-693-9766 (US), so we can help.

    Best wishes,

      My Dyson vaccum leaves a row of multiple lines on my plush carpet. I've never had s vaccum leave more than the two wheel lines. I called customer service and they had no solution for me!


      It's the beater bar brush. Turn it over and use a screwdriver or knife, and run it the full width of the beater bar to remove the hair and string and other debris that get wound up on the beater bar-NOTE you do NOT have to remove the beater bar or take apart anything. As long as the beater bar spins, and there are no missing sections on the beater bar- this will work. Beater bar could also be worn down- be sure that the bristles extend past the bottom of the vacuum- ALWAYS DO THIS WITH THE POWER OFF

      I was told by a previous repair man that there is a fuse in the beater bar that needed to be replaced.


      Up to my experience in my Panasonic vacuum cleaner, if the beater bar is not working this could be because the 'Carpet/Floor' selector switch is in the 'OFF' or 'FLOOR' position. In both of these positions the beater bar will not rotate. Move the selector switch to the 'CARPET' position. When in this position the beater bar will rotate once the foot pedal is pressed.

      If the selector switch is in the 'CARPET' position and the beater bar is still not rotating it could be that there is something entangled in the beater bar, or the belt is worn or broken.

      To check this first unplug the vacuum cleaner

      Inspect the beater bar and belts to ensure that there is nothing entangled in the beater bar and that the belts are intact and are not excessively worn. If the belts are excessively worn they may slip resulting in the beater bar not rotating.

      The vacuum cleaners often have an overload protection system inside the nozzle, which stops the nozzle motor when the beater bar jams to prevent belt breakage. After clearing any lint build up or jamming you may need to reset the overload protection, by pressing the reset button on the top of the floor nozzle.

      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--

      Low suction


      Hi, You can take care of both things at once. Here's how:
      Unplug and flip your vacuum over, beater bar side up. Remove the cover base plate that surrounds your beater bar. It's held on with either clips or screws, and usually "hinges" toward the front of the vacuum to release when the clips/screws are undone. Remove the base plate. The beater bar sits in sockets where it fits into the vacuum. Pay particular attention to how it comes out as you remove the beater bar, so it will be much easier to put it back together. If your belt is good, it will want to come off with the beater bar, but will remain attached to the motor. If necessary, slip the belt off of the beater bar. Behind the beater bar, you'll see a cavity. This is where the vacuum pulls the dirt from the beater bar. Look up into the cavity; stuff almost always hangs up in there. Remove any debris that you can find. While you have your beater bar out, look at the ends, where it fits into the sockets. Hair and other material catches on the beater bar and winds around it. If it is in and around the sockets, it causes the vacuum to have to work harder to clean. Remove any debris that you find on either end. Get your new belt and place it on the motor shaft. Slip the beater bar into the belt, and install the beater bar and sockets back into the vacuum frame. It takes patience so don't worry if it takes a few tries to get it right. Once in, test your work by revolving the beater bar a bit with your hand. You should be able to feel the tension of the belt as it turns the bar and the motor shaft. Take one more look at the sockets, just to be sure that they are in the proper place, and that the beater bar is level in the frame. Reinstall the base plate. This should have you finished at this end.

      How do I change the belt on the motor?


      Hi. This is easily done. Flip the vacuum over, beater bar up. With the machine unplugged, locate the screws or tabs that hold the base plate on, surrounding the beater bar. Remove the plate. The beater bar is held in place by fitting into sockets that then fit into the vacuum frame, so be careful in removing the beater bar. Pay close attention to the sockets, so you can get the bar assembly back in easily. Replace the belt. When you fit it over the motor shaft, you'll have to slip the belt onto the beater bar, and fit the bar into the frame at the same time. Reinstall the plate, and test your work by revolving the beater brush a bit by hand......If you're satisfied, you should be good to go!

      Belt


      Hi. This isn't a hard repair at all.... Unplug your vacuum. Turn the vacuum beater bar side up. Locate the catches or screws that hold the plate on that covers the beater bar. Remove the plate. The beater bar sits in sockets where it attaches to the vacuum, so remove carefully, making note how it comes out. This will make reassembly much easier. Place your new belt on the motor shaft, then onto the beater bar while you replace the beater bar back into the sockets. Test your work by revolving the beater bar a bit by hand. Reinstall the cover plate. That's it!

      Regards! --W/D--

      Change belt on a eureka


      With the vacuum unplugged, turn the machine beater side uo. On the plate that surrounds the beater bar, look for release tabs to open the plate. Flip them and set the plate to the side. The beater bar rides in sockets. Remove the bar, install the new belt around the motor shaft, then work the beater back into the sockets. Replace the plate. Test your work by rotating the beater bar by hand, making sure that it is reinstalled correctly.

      Vacuum turns on and suction in hose works, beater bar won't turn


      If you hear the motor in the head running and the beater bar isn't rotating, you probably need a drive belt. With the power off, make sure you can rotate the beater bar freely by hand, if it isn't bound up.. then locate and remove the baseplate screws to gain access to the beater bar itself, you'll see a drive belt pulley system and chances are, a broken belt. Replace it with a new one by pulling the beater bar assembly out of the housing and plcing the belt onto the motor shaft pulley as well as the beater bar pulley.. nest the beater bar back into the holder and reinstall the cover. Hope that helps !
