Question about Lindhaus Vacuums

Why does my Lindhaus Cannister vacuum shut off after I got thicker carpet and I adjusted the thickness?

I adjust carpet depth but if you stop and don't move the rug beater the sweeper shuts off.

You can also set the brush to the middle setting of the special/ normal brush settings. Also, your micro-sweep blade might have popped off making it very hard to push in that direction. The micro-sweep is the plate held by two screws right below the intake with the little blade that sticks up.

SOURCE: beater bar brush stopped working...

Does the power head motor stop, or does the brush roll stop. If it is the brush roll stopping, replace the belt and/or the brush roll. If it is the motor, you may need to clean out around the motor, it may not be getting enough air to cool causing it to overheat and stopping. That the brush roll plate off, take out the screw, and the top will come off, then you can check to see if cleaning is the answer, if not, the motor may be bad.

The suction is so great that it sucks up your carpet, then nothing works. I get my children to stand on the corners/edges of the rug so that it stays perfectly flat on the floor while I vacuum. Or, you can turn off the brush roller (set it to "hard floor" setting). Or, tip the vacuum cleaner's front up slightly while vacuuming, to reduce suction.

I've had my Hoover S3755 for about 2 years and loved it, at least until the last couple of months when the "belt slipping off" problem started. I changed the belt and the vacuum would work for a little while then the belt would come off again. I put on a new belt again and within minutes the belt had slipped off. I took it to my local vacuum repair about 4:00 in the afternoon. By 4:45 I got a call from the repairman that he'd fixed my vacuum! What did he do? He put a different belt on it. He put a Rainbow belt on my Hoover that's thicker and doesn't have as much "give" as the Hoover belt. It's also a little bit wider than the Hoover belt. Now when the brush slows or stops at a carpet edge the belt doesn't slide off.

It is because the belt is worn or stretched and needs to be replaced. Here are the belts you need and the manual which has instructions:

Why does The beater bar on my hoover continue to run in the upright position?


Hi there! Some vacuums do not come with the feature that automatically shuts the brushes off when in the upright position.. If your unit is like this, be sure to put the vacuum on the highest setting when using the hose. Also, because the brush-roll continues to spin, avoid tipping cleaner or setting it on furniture, fringed area rugs, or carpeted stairs during tool use. Hope this was helpful!

Need belt 38528- brush belt


belts will stretch when they slip. There no adjustments on beater-bars. The way to prevent this is to have a height adjustment to be high on high pile and low for low pile rugs.

Bought a new sweeper and brush ( beater bar ) does not turn. The large belt is fine and turns. The small thin belt is also fine but does not turn the brush. It is either the wrong belt or is there...


Jim, To put tension on the brush, tilt machine forward when upright, move carpet selector knob to carpet. then turn vac on. Brush will only spin when vac is tilted back to operate. brush stops when upright and on to use hand tools so the er is no danger to carpet or persons with moving roller.

Is the Dyson pulling carpet fibers, not dirt ?


You need to shut the brush roll off. It is ruining your rugs, the dyson has a very aggressive roller and can hurt some types of rugs and carpets.

Beaters stop when vaccuming rug...didn't when new


I believe you need to change the belt that drives the brushes. When it gets stretched out, it will just spin on the axle of the motor or spin on the brush and smoke.

We have a Kirby Ultimate G. Since we purchased it bounces across the floor and the level of the sweeper has nothing to do with it. To get it to stop, it has to be at the highest level. The place we bought it, has done nothing to help us. We tried a new beater brush, no help. If I have to use it at it's highest level to sweep my carpet, I might as well not waste my time. Any suggestions?

Hello,
I would advise you to ALWAYS to FIRST UNPLUG YOUR VACUUM before beginning any service procedure.

The only thing I can suggest is that the brushroll could be in backwards, as you look @ the bottom of the brushroll from the bottom plate, the head of the screws should be facing the floor on each side of the brushroll, so check the brushroll because I thing that is what is happening, what you can do is adjust the brushroll down using the screws doing a ¼ or ½ turn
Until the brushroll stops bouncing across the floor, once you get it adjusted correctly then raise the height adjustment to the highest level and adjust downward to listen for the tone to change and then try it, it should work and if not go down one more adjustment – also change the belt every 4 to 6 months as recommended by the manufacturer. Feel free to contact a local vac dealer in your area for the brushroll height adjustment if you have problems. So if you need further assistance, please feel free to contact your local vacuum cleaner dealer in your area or in the yellow pages, or contact the factory phone number or website to further assist you with your questions.

Agitator stops when sweeper is pulled backward


If you have made no changes to the vacuum's setup and are using it on same carpet you have previously used it on with no problem, then the most likely cause is the agitator/beater bar's drive belt is worn or on some models may have a tension adjustment which is set too loosely. This can also be caused by having the vacuums height adjustment set to low for the carpet or flooring you are using it on, causing to much drag when the vacuum is pulled backwards for the agitator to overcome.

The vast majority of agitators turn in a forward direction, as if it would pull the vacuum forward, when you pull the vacuum backwards the drag is increased.

So...First check height adjustment (a no cost fix), then check out the tension adjustment (if present on you model, some engage when top of vacuum is tilted back after stepping on the release pedal) Lastly, consider changing belt especially if you have had the vacuum awhile or if it gets a fair amount of use or it you seem to need to use it on a low height setting all the time to vacuum up debris.

Hope this helps!
