SOURCE: cracked

I'm afraid that you will have to replace the base unit, part #62577, would sell for around $25. Once it cracks, then it is weak and will affect the brush roll and belt.

How can I remove the roller brush to clean it?


While not removing rollers, my method of cleaning them involves regular attention to prevent build up. Sometimes long hair or threads get wound so thickly & tightly the roller gets stuck & won't turn. If I can't unwind enough by pulling a few threads at a time, I'll cut a bit & pull it away a bit at a time until the mess pulls free. This is especially tedious if it gets caught at the edges in the rotation mechanism. That can be one piece of thread at a time, tugging gently & cutting away the jam until you can free it. As for the brushes themselves, sometimes a wide toothed comb will clear clumps of pet fur & rug lint from each strip of brush on the rollers, making it easier to see & remove long, wound tightly tangles.

WHY DOES metal spindle BURN


Sounds like the rotating brushes are stuck. Maybe something is wound around them. ie: bits of carpet or a piece of string or line?

Brush won't spin when carpet cleaner is running


see this causes and fix it. God bless you
If the vacuum cleaner brush is not spinning, the brushroll bearing might be jammed. Try removing the brushroll assembly and cleaning all hair, string, lint, etc. from the brushroll bearing. If that doesn't solve the problem the brushroll may need to be replaced.

Brushes don't move. vacuum motor works


The brushes on the roller are driven by a wide, short rubber belt. These belts get old, worn, overheated, and break periodically.

It should be a fairly simple matter to unscrew & remove the plate, revealing the belt and roller assembly. You can get a replacement belt at Sears or nearly any vacuum shop.

While replacing the belt, it would be a good idea to take scissors or a knife (careful!) and remove the hair & other material that's wound around your roller. One thing that can cause a belt to break is when you're vacuuming & accidently pick up a string, a shoelace, a piece of cord... you know how fast that gets wound around the brush roller and locks it up? At that point, the belt is still trying to rotate the roller (which won't rotate)... and within seconds, the belt will get extremely hot. This can cause it to break, or reduce its life significantly.

This should be an easy fix, requiring nothing more than a replacement belt and a screwdriver. Good luck!

The beater bar doesn't rotate


If you have anyone in your house with long hair you'll probably find that it has hair wound around the shaft that spins. It's possible to take the whole thing apart & strip it down to the bare shaft & you don't need any tools. Turn the head upside down, and slide the flat clip that is at the back of the underside further backwards to unlock the back of the bottom plate. Then turn the two round latches on the back of the cross-arms of the head about 1/4 turn anti-clockwise, this will unlock the front edges. You should now be able to remove the bottom plate of the head. Once you have the head off, remove any hair and dust you can see, and if you hold the two ends of the beater and twist them gently against each other one way or the other, you will hopefully find that the beater comes loose on the shaft and the two black beater sleeves with the brushes on them can be slid outwards & removed. Once you've taken them out, thoroughly clean them (you can wash them in water) and carefully pull out any hair that is wrapped around the shaft, bearing in mind that some could have gone in under the edge of the plastic part that the shafts poke out of. Once you've got everything as clean as you can (I washed all the pieces of the head) and dried it all off you can put it back together again in the opposite order that you pulled it apart.

THE BRUSH ON MY HEAD FOR THE SEBO K1 HAS STOPPED SPINNING WHY???


Check the brush roller at each side to see if threads are wound around it. Also, check the brush to see if there are threads wound around it. This is what generally stops the brushes from spinning. It will take sometime to unwind the threads/lint and you may need scissors and tweezers to fully remove all of them but it will be worth it!

My brush roller stopped spinning so I had to take it off and clean out all the hair that had gotten wound around it. I replaces it and now it is make a lound noise, but only when the brush is on. Could it...


Could very well be the belt. When cleaning the brush it is a good idea to add some WD40 at the ends where the plastic pieces are that hold the brush in the vacuum. The brush needs to be able to move freely around the plastic pieces. Add the WD40 and rotate the plastic pieces around the brush until they move freely. Reassemble making sure the belt is put in correctly so the brush moves in the right direction.
