    I pulled the lace out. It is not wrapped around the beater bar. The bar just does not rotate now.

  • pollydoodle3 Jun 02, 2009

    just needed clarification. better anwer now

  • pollydoodle3 Jun 02, 2009

    i did not leave the lace in there for any length of time. Could it be the belt?

  • pollydoodle3 Jun 03, 2009

    thanks for all the tips. it turns out that there is a reset button for the beater bar. i pushed it and now everything is working wonderfully. this might help someone else who may encounter this problem.

    This happened after a shoe lace had been picked up and then removed.

    oh i gotcha... well there might be an issue with the motor that spins the actual batr... because it was probably trying to rotate after you got the face stuck in it and it couldnt spin... you most likely overheated the motor causing to break. sorry about my first answer... i guess i needed some clarifacation.. if you dont mind, could you change the rating of my solution? it'd be greatly appreciated. :)

If you can turn the beater by hand(when unplugged) and its easy to turn then it's the drive belt, they do not take long to burn through, and leave a horrid burning rudder smell as a clue.If its hard to turn you have jamed a piece oof lace in it.

You will need to remove some parts to see what has failed. The instruction are at;

You do not need to remove the motor if it's working, so ignore that part. It sounds like the rubber drive belt for the beater bar is broken or jump the pulley.

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.

Why won't brushes move on Commercial Carpet Pro Vacuum Cleaner


Luvumuch48tj:

Unplug the vacuum and lay it upside down on some newspaper. Remove the sole plate (bottom plate) with a screwdriver. Pull straight up on the brushes (called a beater bar) and remove the beater bar and belt. Remove the end caps and bearings from the ends of the beater bar (it may take a 2-grunt pull, or CAREFULLY pry the end caps and bearings from the beater bar with a screwdriver) Don't stab your hand with the screwdriver... That HURTS! Once you have the bearings and end caps off, remove the hair, carpet fibers and other gunk from the ends of the beater bar, end caps and bearings. Dribble a little rubbing alcohol on the bearings in the end caps and spin the bearings to clean them... keep dribbling alcohol in the bearings until the alcohol draining from the bearings is clear. Dry the bearings until there is no alcohol in them. Now would be a good time to check the opening in the vacuum head and the hose going into the body of the vacuum for clogs. Reinstall the bearings and end caps on the beater bar and reinstall the beater bar with a new belt in the machine. Reinstall the sole plate. Your machine should run like new.

Beater bar stopped after sucking up shoe lace


Hi choward40,

Yah, vacuums don't particularly care for shoelaces! :>)

Did you get the shoelace taken out of the beater brush?
Did the shoelace go all the way into the machine?

Please reply back. Thanks,

Turn it off and turn it back on again and it should reset.If that dosent work you probably broke the belt.It's easy enough to replace by just removing the bottom plate and the brush and installing the new belt. www.sewvac.com

Self Propel wheels not enough power to move machine over carpet.


Sounds like the transmission might need an overhaul. Take it to a local vacuum repair shop and have them look at the transmission.

I ran over a shoe lace and now it is making a loud rattling noise


The All Floors model has a protective belt clutch system and the rattling sound means the clutch has slipped. This would have to be repaired officially by a Dyson repairer.

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 !
