Floatting brush makes it hard to go forward


Most vacuums have an adjustment at the front so when you go from linoleum floors to thick carpet you can raise or lower them. Try raising or lowering it. Also every vacuum with problems I've ever looked at has needed a serious cleaning. Hair gets caught and wrapped around the wheels, hair gets caught on the "beater" bars and slows down the whole vacuum. Finally string or thread gets caught around everything. My wife does a lot of cross stitch and knitting projects, so I have to dismantle and clean our vacs about once a month. Finally if the air filter is clogged, then air can't pass through it. Change the filter or rinse it out in the sink. You'll breath a little better after you do this too.

Roller Brush on Electrolux Nimble vacuum not rotating.


Many vacuums use air flow to rotate the brush. I would suspect the nail has blocked the piping inside and needs a tear down to remove it .

Every so often I get a smell of burning from my g4 Kirby vacuum. I noticed it's when I'm vacuuming a fairly new rug on this house I clean. Should I be concerned?


If it is a smell of burning rubber - most likely your vacuum belt is overdue for replacement.

At this point - remove the brush roller, remove the old belt, clean off your brush roller and remove any string or hair that may be bound up around it (usually around where the belt goes or on the sides), and put on a new belt. Your Kirby should act good as new if your bag is replaced at the same time.

If the brush roller has too much string and hair wrapped around it, many times the brush roller will not spin as fast as the belt is driving it and you will get that burning smell.

Agitator unit on Kenmore Progressive 116.25915503 won't spin. I have cleaned out all hair and string wrapped around it. Belt is good. It seems to spin on one side but stuck on the other. Could string be...


Pry the end caps off the brush bar, you will find hair and string wrapped up tight in the end. the bearing may also be shot, you can try and oil it up a bit to keep it spinning. <!-- from fixya rte -->

the loud ratching is a warning to tell you that there is something stopping the roller bar from rotating this is a very common thing lay the machine on the floor front side down take off the bottom plate and just check the belt is in the centre of the belt guide on the brush bar normally if you turn the roller slowly without the bottom plate fitted it will straighten out on its own

Hi Dave.

Ok you need to lift belt end of roller up, so that you get the roller straight then lower roller down so that both ends go in at same time down.

Use a large flat screwdriver to help lever roller up from belt end & watch your fingers (Ouch).

Roller brush on vacuum will not turn


This other than it's capabitlities to clean is a very fragile product for this reason. Everytime you get something wrapped around the rollers it quits allowing the roller brush to turn. My repair guy says it is in the switch on the handle it causes some sort of short or something. Everytime it happens it costs me $45-50 to get it repaired the first time it was still under warrantee next time I'm just going to buy something with a better track record and a longer warrantee. I think Dyson has a five year warrantee.
