Beaters stop when vaccuming rug...didn't when new

Vaccum runs fine on all surfaces except lately when we vaccum a large rug it will run for a bit and then the brushes stop. I have to tip the vaccum back to the upright position and mess around with the brush on/off toggle switch on the handle. After a bit of fiddling with that it will work again until i vaccum a little further and then it stops again. It works fine on the carpet in my house and it used to work fine on this same rug.

I believe you need to change the belt that drives the brushes. When it gets stretched out, it will just spin on the axle of the motor or spin on the brush and smoke.

Why won't my shark navigator cordless vacuum pick anything up?


Sometimes everything seems to be fine. The brushes turn, but if the brushes aren't cleaned of hair, rug tangles and so on, the brushes on the vaccum get filled and it won't puck up anything. ON THE OTHER HAND if the brushes are clean, did you check all your hoses from thr base of of vaccum where things get sucked up to the bin?

It is a dirt devil Royal which I use to vaccum stair steps. it is a new vaccum . not it will not work, the brush will not rotate. I looked to see if some hair was the problem but no hair or fuss. ...


Hi, I am sorry it took this long to get back to you and I promise I will get right on this. We are having issues with our e mail notifications.
You say this is a new vacuum, do you mean brand new? never used before? I am going to look into the dirt devil problems and see if we can narrow down the causes. I assume you tried this in several outlets to make sure it is not the outlet. Does the motor run at all? or is it running but the brush not turning and not picking up dirt.?

take the vacuum head off the end of the tube , turn the machine and place your hand over the end of the tube
if it sucks your hand onto the tube , the machine is working as a vacuum machine
then check fro a blockage in the elbow section near the head

Bissell vaccum problem


Could be plugged, check the hose and at the bottom by the brush roll, the inlet maybe clogged. Also check the filter under neath the dirt tank. There are filters above the dirt container, clean those out. If after that it is still loud, then maybe the motor fan or bearins are bad and will have to be replaced, part #2031214 sells for around $55.

Door stopper stuck in vaccum


I would first check down by the brush roll, take off the plate so you can get to the inlet to see if it stuck there, could be in the hose or the bag tube. Could be that it damaged the motor fan, you have to remove the motor to check it. If You had listed the model number, it would have been alot of help.
