Remove the brush roll and check to see if there is a problem. You might need to replace the brush roll if the bushings are bad

SOURCE: Vibrates very loudly when brush starts spinning

take out screws on bottom and see if tension bar can be tightened, make sure the right belt is in there, also if belt looks worn or gouged replace with a new belt

Makes heavy vibration noise when turned on for carpet and belt is good


Check the brush roll and the end caps to insure the brush roll is spinning freely. If there is wear or damage to the brush roll it can cause it to be out of balance and vibrate

Vacuum works, but makes an irritating rattling noise whenever I use it. Both speeds. There is not debris in the blade that I can see when I remove the handle and turn the brush while looking into motor...


There are moving parts that are likely the culprit. Start by examining the brush roll and make sure it is not loose or to see if the brush roll is not being held tightly in place. If it is loose it will rattle around.

I transported my newly given to me by my dad tristar from Fl to LA and I can't get the reset button to start the power. The vacuum comes on, but the rug attachment is not spinning I can't get


If the rug attachment is not spinning, it is likely the drive belt has come off. Also, the entire intake area probably needs to be cleaned.

If the vacuum cleaner starts, the reset button has nothing to do with why the attachment doesn't spin.

How to get to belt on motorized FLoor cleaner? Has many odd shaped screws.IT is a TriStar EXL and stopped working so I believe it is the belt, but cannot get screws to operate even with a star screwdriver.


Thewre should be an easier way to access belt. Check under power head again, I cant see how there would a problem. Was you get in it the belt is easy to install. Put belt on motor shaft first, then roll it on the brush end. Chris
