SOURCE: brush won't turn.

Hi, W/D here.

You'll need to remove the base plate around the beater bar, and remove any hair that is around the ends of the beater bar. It tends to collect there, along with bits of string, ribbon, and such. When you're removing the hair, be aware of how the beater bar fits in the sockets that hold it in the vacuum frame; you have to replace them in the right way or the beater bar will rub.

Best regards, --W/D--

SOURCE: While operating machine, brush does not rotate.

Likely the wires are broken under the left hand cover not a difficult fix. Unplug the machine and remove the 4 torx screws and an access panel at the side of the ball. replace wires with new or re-connect with a splice. ensure wires are long enough to allow movement and you don't trap the wires when you replace the covers. about a 20 min job with the right tools

The brush has to be able to rotate freely in order to work. If you remove the roller and its end caps you may find it is clogged with hair or other debris. Cleaning out the debris should allow the brush to rotate freely.

Brushes will not rotate


I can't tell for sure from the pictures, but there are two possibilities - the drive belt to the brushes broke, or the brush can't turn due to excessive hair wrapped around the shaft. If the belt is OK but the brush does not turn, you should smell burning rubber.

If the belt is broken, you have to remove the bottom plate to expose the brush, remove the brush and the broken belt, and replace the belt, and put it back to gether. While you have the brush out, now would be a good time to clean it - remove the hair, etc from the brush and around the shaft. Good Luck!

Brush will not turn


brush will not rotate... should I ASSUME it is an upright? IF SO, I assume that it has a drive belt. I guess that you have removed the 3 or 4 screws that hold the belt cover in place and have confirmed that te belt is not broken. Note that excessive hair in the belt drive area can prevent the brush from turning. If you have an air pressure drive system (rare), then hair can clog the air flow to the drive impeller. You provide no information that can guide me to give specific trouble shooting suggestions.....or solutions

Need to replace belt and cannot figure how to take it apart to get at the belt --- Took Screws off on the bottom but could not get to the belt


You have already removed the screws so lift the brush cover off. Then grasp rotating floor brush at both ends and lift. Clean strings,hair and other debris from rotating brush, paying close attention to the brush ends. Clean the debris from motor pulley and drive belt areas.Grasp old drive belt and remove from motor pulley. Place new drive belt over motor pulley and stretch other end over rotating floor brush in the space between the bristles. Place the ends of the rotating floor brush down into slots on the sides. Turn the rotating floor brush by hand several times in the direction of motor pulley. If installed properly, drive belt will center itself on rotating brush. Reposition brush cover and screw back into place. I hope that this helps you!

The brush will not rotate. I thought this was a direct drive system.


Note: The brush will not rotate when the machine is locked in the upright position, because an internal micro-switch turns the brush motor off.

- Check the belt through the clear brush cover. If this appears damaged or broken, please take your machine to a local BISSELL Authorized Service Center to have this replaced. If the belt is intact, please continue checking the following:
- Ensure both power switches are turned on when you check for brush rotation.
- Unplug the power cord and remove the handle completely. Slide handle back into the lower section of handle, ensuring the screw is in tight. If the handle is not aligned properly, this will affect the power of the brush motor.
- Look for debris wrapped around the brush (i.e. string, hair, fibers, etc.). When the machine is unplugged, cut away any visible hair, fibers or debris from the brush roller. This brush is NOT removable from the machine.
- If something has become lodged in the foot and the brush shuts off, turn off the vacuum and unplug this from the outlet. You can now remove the obstruction. The brush will automatically reset when the vacuum is plugged in and turned back on.

If you continue to experience difficulty with this, please take your machine to the following Service Center in your area. The warranty on this machine is five years.

Rotating Floor Brush Isin't spinning


It appears that the end of the brush is getting jammed with hairs, treads, and/or dust or the belt may be worn. Try taking the brush out and hold it by the ends and try to turn it. It should turn quite easily if it is working good. If not try taking the ends off and clean them out. Also, make sure the belt is good.

V1917n shark vacuum won't run


Mine did the same thing, actually both of them did. I had ordered two at the same time. I love these vacuums. They are so convenient to use and do a terrific job, at least until they acted up and did not want to run.

The first one would power up for a second or two and then quit and the three lights would flash. I tried everything to get it to work. I switched batteries and the charger cord with the new one, but still it did the same thing. So, I opened my second new one up and began using it. I worked for several months and then just here a couple of days ago it too began acting just like the first one did.

I took the corner brush off and then the rotator brush off and removed all the hair, strings, and etc., from around the brushes and also all the areas of the vacuum where any could be at. I put it all back together and it turned for several seconds and then the three lightw would flash again.

I had given up on them working again and was going to be boxing then both up and send back for replacements and was looking at buying another brand of cordless rechargeable sweeper. I had found one to buy, but still I knew that I would miss the Shark vacuums.

Well, tonight I took the second one apart again and looked at areas where I might have missed any hair or strings that might have wound around anything that might keep the brush from turning. I found some wound around the rotator brush end piece that is on the side opposite to the belt. At first I thought that a rubber gasket was worn that fit over the little metal rod that is at the end of the rotator brush, but when it still would not run, then I was thinking that the belt needed to be changed.

I have read somewhere, where someone said that it was hard to change the belts. Well, with the Shark that I have, which has three speeds and the handle that drops down in the middle so that you can vacuum under beds and etc, it is easy to change. There is a tab that you have to push that is next to the wheel on the belt side of the underside of the vacuum, and it opens to reveal the belt.

Well, when I opened it----------there was a tremendous lot of fibers and hair wrapped around the belt wheel and in the chamber leading up to the wheel that the belt attaches to the rotator brush. After taking the belt off the bottom wheel and cleaning all the hair and fibers off it and removing all the rest in the chamber, I put everything back together and it powered up and ran just like it did when I first got it.

I also got the first one working also. I don't have to send them back and have to wait a long time for replacements. Just a word of advice------------keep the rotator brush clean and the area around the belt at the bottom and anywhere else where hair and strings can wrap around. Keep a check on it weekly and it might keep them running.

DC07 bottom brush does not rotate.


I can not pinpoint what exactly solved the issue. I opened the bottom conver, cleaned any presence of hair, cleaned all hoses (yes hose was completely clogged), made sure that the brush bar was engaged by switching the selector back and forth few times from Carpet to Bare floor. (On bare floor setting, brush bar won't rotate).

Now I am happy that the vacuum is completely cleaned and back in operation!
