Hi, I have a 1 year old XL Pro Plus Upright. Motor works fine, brushes are turning but it will not create any vacuum. we made sure thenew bag is connected properly and still no suction. Any advise? Thanks,...


The belt that turns the brush bar is probably stretched and worn. Once this happens, you will lose suction. When they get worn they stretch, thus causing it to spin on the bar itself.Just simply replace the belt with a new one that fits your machine.

Good Luck!

I have a older m&s system central vac model av625 one motor quit the brushes are gone are parts available


You will need a new motor, not brushes, as the worn motor will tear through new brushes. Search online for the M&S motor replacement and you will see helpful sites that will provide the replacement motor. Replacing the motor is not difficult. Consider replacing both motors as the second motor will go out in the near future.

My Kenmore canister vac's carpet beaterbrush doesn't work however the mini stair one does is the prob in the extendable pole?


The problem is more likely in the power head itself. If the power nozzle motor runs, but the brush doesn't rotate, then the likeliest problem is a broken or worn belt. It could be clogged or worn brush bearing, as well.
You may able to do a visual check for a broken belt. If not, turn PN so brush is facing up. Try turning the brush by hand. If it turns freely, the belt is broken. If it sticks badly, there's a bearing problem, or excessive thread, hair, or similar items wrapped around the brush and it needs cleaned. It can also be bad or clogged bearings, which will need to be cleaned or replaced.
I generally recommend even simple fixes like replacing a belt be done by an authorized service tech, as misplacement and improper tension can cause belt breakage and/or rapid wear, and even shortened life for the PN motor.
Check the connection where the wand or cord connects to the PN. If you see any discolored or obviously worn terminals, they need to be replaced.
If the motor doesn't run, even after pressing the reset button, then the problem is probably bad/broken wiring, wiring connections, or even a worn out motor.
If you still haven't found the problem, a repair shop can trace the problem and repair it, but it may be cheaper in the long run to buy a new vacuum.

Brush will not turn even when disconnected from belt and trying to turn it by hand. What does this mean?


  • Hi there,
  • That means that the roller brush needs to be replaced as the bushings on the end of the roller are more than likely worn out and you can purchase the roller brush at this web site if you can not find it locally where you live: WWW.Bissell.com/parts the roller brush pulls straight up and comes out and goes in quite easily. Make sure you keep the little felt "o" rings that are on the end of it and if the new one does not have them look at where they are on this one and replace them in the same place on the new one..
  • I hope this was helpful to you and could you please rate my answer on your way out? Thank You for choosing Fixya.com

How to change carbon brushes


You need to know that very seldom will new carbon brushes alone `FIX`a motor in todays vacuums as they are higher RPM than those of 30 years ago.
On a salvageable motor a good rebuild procedure will generally include repacking bearings, cleaning suction fans and reseating new brushes with an abrasive seating stone at low speed with a motor run in device with variable voltage

That said, I have not done a HENRY in years but it likely will contain a generic AMTEK Lamb type motor as it is sold as more durable vac.
On a traditional vac motor, carbon brushes are removed by releasing a clamp over the brush. The brush holder will have either a flag terminal on it where the wiring will disconnect from the side, or a flat flag terminal which slides into a pocket on the carbon brush housing.
. If you are going to the trouble of replacing the brushes, remove and inspect the old ones for wear and chipping. Also inspect the commutator surface on the motor where the brushes contact. If there are any curved gaps between segments, or if the com is worn like an apple core , you need a motor complete.
If the motor has simply worn to the point where a brush has stuck or worn to nothing, you may be bale to reseat the new brushes, however any evidednce of BLUE sparks or noise is not a good sign . Best of luck. Post back if you need more help

Dyson DC07 brush roller is worn and won't make contact with the carpet anymore. I need to replace the brush roller but don't know how...HELP?


Buy the brush over the web etc..

To take the brush out
1 - Take the outer covering - uese a penny to turn the yellow srews

2 - Slide the black brush out from the assembly - Try the non belt side first.

3- Slide the belt out of the brush.

4 - Take brush out - Replace it with new one.

Problems with Beam central vac


My Beam central vac has started turning off after about 10 minutes of use. I thought it was the hose, but the hose in the garage does the same thing, and I've also tried the other outlets, and the same. The canister was just emptied about two weeks ago. I have also reset the breaker, and unplugged and replugged in the system. Could this be a bad motor?

Carbon Brushes wearing out quickly on Kirby Heritage II


4 possible reasons.
1 – one or both bearings are worn so armature (rotating part) wobbles as it is spinning and cause motor brushes to wear fast. Solution – change bearings too.
2 – Whoever replaced brushes – did not use some brush seating sticks to make cmutator smother and contour brushes to the shape of the comutator (not likely). Solution – appropriately install new set of brushes.
3 – Comutator is so warped that seating sticks do not help anymore – solution – new armature or turn the old armature.
4 – The fact that ONLY ONE brush was worn may mean that there is something wrong with the brush or housing. Maybe it could not move freely within the housing? I think this may be most likely cause it it may be a combination of all 4.Is it worth to fix? Hmm depends how much will it be. If this is 100+ - I’d say get newer Kirby for 300 ad enjoy the tech drive (Heritage does not have tech drive so it is much harder to vacuum with than the newer models)

Oreck belts keep coming off


If the pulley on the brush roll is worn, then I would replace the brushroll. Look at the ends where the brush roll sits in to make sure the casing hasn't over heated and not holding the brush in place. Also make sure the motor is shifting and causing the belt to come off. Another is if you are catching a rug or towel, that also will cause the belt to come off. I am assuming you using a new belt and not a worn one. After only a short time, belts stretch and need to be replaced.
