SOURCE: 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.

SOURCE: Hoover WindTunnel Canister: Roller brush motor not turning

These motors have a fuse incorporated in the field winding and it sounds like that blew. These motors sometimes overheat at the front bearing and the bearing will melt into the plastic housing. This will cause the fuse to blow. It sounds like that's your problem. You can remove the motor by removing the three screws on the bottom of the powerhead and then check the front bearing for any bubbling or blistering in the plastic housing. The shaft of the motor should turn easily.

SOURCE: Roller/sweeper on my Electrolux Pronto

After 3 years my Pronto slowed down and needed new batteries. I just replaced all 8 internal batteries. It cost just under $30 with shipping and took 1 hour of soldering. If you're not handy with a soldering iron, don't attempt it. All of the batteries are soldered together in series. You need to order the 8 (4/5 Sc size, 2000 mAh) Nickel metal hydride (Ni-MH) batteries with tabs. The source I used was www.BatteryJunction.com. Here's a link to the battery page: http://www.batteryjunction.com/tenergy-45th-sc-1-2-2000-tabs.html

PS The vac now runs GREAT!

SOURCE: roller motor on a DC17 dyson wont turn on

there is a reset button under the cover that houses the on/off switches. remove the handle/wand and look on the back (where the top of the hose sits) for 2 screws (its a torx/star head screw size t10 i believe). remove them and locate 4 small locking tabs that hold the switch cover to the frame of the vacuum. Depress them and pop the cover off (2 towards the top and 2 towards the bottom). Youll see 3 switches (2 square red buttons and one small cylindrical shaped one). Push the small red one (the one to the left if my memory serves me right). you should hear a click. if you do than the switch is reset. if not check all connections to all 3 switches. if you see nothing loose or not connected, you may need a new brushbar motor. try it

Dyson 39-the brush does not keep turning-starts to go then quits suction apparently ok


Hello, this is Ava with Think Crucial.

There are a number of reasons why your brush roller has stopped moving. General maintenance to your vacuum is crucial and will help it work at peak performance.

First things first lets focus on the brush roller. Unplug the vacuum and turn it on its side. Look for any noticeable clumps of debris or hair strands that may be caught in the brush roller. Remove these obstructions, probably best to do so with a scissor if it's hair or long pieces of carpet fibers. After removing the debris try manually rotating the brush roller to uncover other hidden clogs. Another thing to take note of is the condition of the bristles on the roll itself. Are they loose or worn down? These are signs that your brush roller is in need of replacing.

While checking out your brush roll you might as well take a look at your vacuums belt. Your belt should be replaced about every three months. After regular usage, the belt will stretch out, lessening the tension on the brush roller. Lesser tension diminishes the brush roller's turn rate and speed. If the belt feels loose then it certainly is affecting your vacuums suction as well as your brush roll not moving at all.

Why wont brushes rotate


Hi, it's Allie from Crucial Vacuum!

There are several things that may affect the performance of your unit and cause this to happen. The roller brush may stop working properly because of the belts, the roller brush or the filters in your unit.

Belt are recommended to be changed every 3 months, not replacing the belts can cause them to stretch out and the roller brush won't work properly. If the belts are in optimal conditions and do not need to be replaced, this may have been caused by your unit's rollerbrush.

Roller brushes can be cleaned and maintained to avoid frequent replacement. Make sure that there are no hair strands or debris tangled up in the brush roll's bristles, this may cause the roller to not work. Monthly care of your brush roller will help to keep you vacuum working properly.

Last, make sure to check your filters, if the filters have not been washed (if washable) or have not been replaced, it can affect the suction and performance of your unit.

There are 2 plastic screws that pivot 90 degrees on the top of the front nozzle. Turn them and lift off the hood. You will see the brush roll and belt. Remove the brush roll and clean off any debris or hair, also from metal caps at the ends of the roller. Be careful not to loose the 2 washers under the end caps. Place the new belt on the motor shaft that sticks out of the main body, then place the brush roll pulley against the belt and pull forward and lock the roller in position. Spin the roller by hand to make sure that the belt is aligned properly. Place the hood back on the front nozzle and turn the plastic screws to tighten. Have fun cleaning.

GREEN LIGHT AND MOTOR


The green light is an indicator that your brush is rolling smoothly. If it starts to flicker and you smell something that smells like rubber burning you need to do a couple things; one is remove the roller and clean off all of the hair, string, etc. Next you want to replace your belt. Just because the roller isn't turning doesn't mean the motor and the belt aren't either. If your roller gets jammed your belt will continue to spin and it will eventually wear down in one spot and break. Replace the belt, clean the roller and your should be fine.
