This is a post from you concerning a Sebo vacuum cleaner."OK - I'm a Sebo expert, and we will get to the bottom of this! I need you to do one thing for me: lie the machine on one side, then switch it on...


First, what is the issue you are experiencing?

You should feel some resistance when turning the beater bar as it is being driven by a fairly tight belt and a motor. The most common issue with the beater bar would be a burning rubber smell. This would mean that the bar was not turning while is was on but in your case it is.

How can I tell if I need to replace the beater bar? I replaced the belt but now it seems too tight and the bar doesn't want to spin.


The belt is supposed to be tight, but the beater bar bearings are probably full of string, hair, and thread. Remove the bar, remove, clean, and oil the bearings (3-1 or similar). Leave the belt off for a moment, and install just the bar. Spin it with your fingers--it should revolve freely--if not, redo the clean/lube process again making sure to clean the inside of the bearings with a Q-tip swab. Once the bar spins freely, remove it to slide on the belt and reinstall. Hope this helps!

Should the brushes revolve something got caught on the brushes when vacuuming up


Yes, the brushes (beater bar) should revolve. Even though the brush is spinning, you probably need to replace the belt2_bing.gif because it is stretched. It is probably slipping on the beater bar..

The brushes will not turn. It appears that the


Hi, W/D here. Easy fix!
Flip the machine over, beater bar side up. The base plate has to come off; it is held on with either screws or clips or a combination of both. Once the base plate is off, you'll need to carefully remove the beater bar, paying close attention as to how the end pieces come out with the beater bar from the vacuum frame. They have to mate back up in the same way they come out. Also note where the belt will ride on the beater bar. While you have it torn down this far, clean the suction cavity as vacuums usually plug up in this area, and remove any hair, ribbons, thread and the like that has gotten wound around the beater bar. Slip your belt over the motor shaft and then slip the beater bar into the belt. It'll feel like you need another pair of hands, but it can be done. Slip the beater bar and sockets back into the vacuum frame, and look again to make sure that the ends are seated properly. Test your work by revolving the belt a bit by hand, feeling for the resistance of the belt and smooth operation. Reinstall the base plate. That ought'a 'bout do it!
Best regards, --W/D--

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!

HOW DO YOU CHANGE THE BELT ON A DIRT DEVIL VISION VACUUM CLEANER?


With the vacuum unplugged, turn the machine beater bar side up. Locate the clips or screws that hold the plate over the beater bar and remove the plate. The beater bar sits in sockets just inside. Be careful in removing it; take your time and note how it comes out...this will make reassembly easier. Clean the debris while you have tha bar off and remove any debris thet you see in the vacuum hose area behind the bar....The new belt slips over the motor shaft behind the beater bar (further up in the cavity behind the b/b), then you slip it back onto the beater bar as you place the bar back nto the sockets. Test your work by revolving the bar a bit to make sure that everything is back in place. Replace the plate.

Revolving brush stopped after I got a sock snagged in it.


If the Dyson model has a brush bar control roller at the left hand side of the top hood then it won't be able to be repaired unless its by a Dyson call out or someone who repairs Dyson models with brush control protection.
If the model doesn't have a brush control dial then you will have to change the drive belt:
Easy to do if you flip the machine over with the beater bar looking upwards. Locate the three/two screw heads and undo with a coin. When the roller section is revealed by taking off the floor head you should replace the belt with a new one and be careful putting the beater bar in the right way on both ends. The belt will be tight brand new so expect some tension in it.
If this works for you please rate Fixya! Thanks.
