Question about Miele Vacuums

Why does the brush stop while using on carpet?

This Miele Salsa Model s7280has a button on, the handle, to select brush on (carpet) or off (floor). When using on carpet, with the brush on, the brush will stop working. At this time I must raise the handle up and back down to get the brush to restart. It repeats this constantly while trying to vacuum. I have tried turning the brush switch off and back on but this action does not work. I have tried moving the handle only enough to get the brush to run and this works also. Is there a switch in the head causing this problem?

would suggest the drive belt is stretched and thus is slipping when contact is made with the carpet.

SOURCE: Losing power to stick/floor vacuum

if you have an extension wand, the replacement will cost about $100.00. there is a way to repair both the pwr-cord on the brush assemble and the wand, but it depends on how much damage there is. also you need to check the contacts where the wand connects with the handle,and the prongs on the handle.

let me know if you still need help

SOURCE: In Carpet setting, the vacuum brush does not spin

I put 3 turns of electrical tape around the area of the beater bar that meets the vacuum belt. This solved the problem short of replacing the beater bar.

SOURCE: Carpet roller will not turn. Vacuum still sucks up dirt

It IS true that you can take the plastic cover off the top of the carpet head. But in addition to removing the two Phillips screws at the bottom, you have to manouver the wand release a bit. Loosen the screw and carefully pull the release back just as much as you need to, to remove the cover.

You will also need to pull manually release the four clips - two at the back and two on the sides - to pull the cover off.

However, I did all this and found that the plastic setting holding the roller canister in at one end had been burned out so that the roller didn't sit properly. Nothing I can do to fix it except order a replacement. The original problem was caused by getting carpet ends caught up in the roller. This caused the burning.

SOURCE: Belt not moving

Hello,

There are actually two belts on the Dyson DC07. The one belt that you can physically see, and a second belt that connects the clutch assembly to the motor shaft. If you're able to spin the one belt that's attached to the brushes, but the vacuum is not spinning the brush, this can really only be one of two problems. Either the rear belt that connects the clutch to the motor shaft has fallen off, which would prevent it from spinning, or the clutch assembly itself maybe bad. Usually when the clutch goes bad however it will make a terrible grinding noise first.


Here's a video on how you can access your clutch, and inspect the rear belt. Either way you'll need to take it apart to diagnosis it.

Hope this helps you:




Thank you,

Chris J.

Our DC41 is impossible to push on carpet. Is there an adjustment to do? Almost like there is too much suction.


See if the following information can help.

CARPETS OR HARD FLOORS

• The brush bar will always default to 'ON' (spinning) each time you switch the

appliance 'ON' and recline it for cleaning.

• The brush bar will not rotate when the appliance is upright.

• To switch the brush bar 'OFF' (e.g. for delicate rugs and hard floors):

- switch the appliance 'ON'

- recline the appliance

- press the brush bar 'ON/OFF' button - the brush bar will stop spinning.

• The brush bar will automatically stop if it becomes obstructed. See 'Brush bar -

clearing obstructions'.

• Before vacuuming your flooring, rugs and carpets, check the manufacturer's

recommended cleaning instructions.

• Some carpets may fuzz if a rotating brush bar is used when vacuuming. If this

happens, we recommend vacuuming in 'hard floor' mode and consulting with

the flooring manufacturer.

• The brush bar on the appliance may damage some carpet types. If you are
unsure, turn 'OFF' the brush bar.

How to repair windtunnel hoover agitator that will not turn


Likely a broken belt. Also check the agitator brush roll bearings (in either end under the end caps) for hair, strong, thread, etc. as this will make the brush roll harder to turn and wear/break belts prematurely. If all these check okay, then observe the tensioning roller that causes the V belt (runs from the idler pulley to the brush roller) to be sure it is swinging down when the handle is released to hold tension on the belt, causing it to rotate. These tensioning rollers can break, but often are locked into the "Bare Floor" setting without the user noticing. Slide the carpet brush roll selector (located on top, next to the floor height slide adjustment) back and forth and make certain it is all the way into the "Carpet" setting to allow the tensioning roller to engage. [Note: The tensioning roller is always retracted (in the neutral or off position) when the handle is in the upright position. You must release the handle to allow this tensioing assembly to engage.]

Hi, i have a panasonic eco max, the brush has stopped going round, the belt is as new and brushes clean.suction good from hose. Any ideas please? thank you


The brush on this model is controlled by the on/carpet/floor switch and will only work in the carpet position. If the suction motor is running then it could be the roller brush motor, but it's more likely to be the microswitch which stops the brush motor when the handle is returned to the upright position.

You gave a good start to giving us good information to help you with solving this problem-- But I need a little more information:

It sounds like you have the Electric Motor driven Power nozzle/ Floor attachment-- am I correct? (Not the type that has a little vacuum motor down at the floor attachment-- Not one that depends upon air flowing thru the unit to power the brush, -- am I correct?)

You can control the motor with a switch at the handle-- correct?

So here is the question: - when you say "the electric power brush -- goes to zero suction" -- what tells you that it 'went to zero suction'?-- the little red flag on the vacuum?-- or what?

I am suspecting something might be caught up in the floor wand-- or at the power nozzle itself-- or even in the flexible hose. Do you know how to take the hose off, and place the hand-held end, in the opening in the Miele Vacuum? Can you do that, and clear out the hose first-- and then the hose with the want connected?

If they are all clear-- we may need to open the floor plate on the floor nozzle, and check for something caught in the air passageway--

The brush rollers are on off, how do i turn them on? model #u6616-900


There is a slider on the front of the hood labeled "brushroll on/off. Carpet/ Bare Floor."

Slide this switch over to the carpet position. Note that if the handle is upright, it will not shift into "carpet" mode until you drop the handle back. This is a safety feature.

If the brushes are not turning at all, it is either your rubber belt, or possibly a problem with the belt tensioner.

The brushes will only work if the handle is released and the ProHeat vacuum is running . There is a micro switch inside the lower handle that switches on the DC carpet brush motor. The DC power for the motor comes from a Bridge Rectifier on the PC Board. petedcurtis@gmail.com
