Can you pull the bar and check the end caps to be sure they spin seperate of the bar? Also look at the wheel from the motor that turns the belt. This may be spinning on the shaft which could be caused by a broken pin.

Brush roll won't turn only a few times


Shane:
Unplug the machine and lay it on it's back with the handle release in the release position (the vacuum head should be laying flat also). Remove the foot plate from the vacuum head. Manually turn the brush roll (called a beater bar). The beater bar should turn fairly easily and the belt should turn the motor armature shaft (now would be a good time to check the inside surface of the belt for grooves or damaged spots which would cause the armature shaft to slip on the belt). If the beater bar has too much resistance to your turning it, I would suspect that the bearings at each end of the beater bar are fouled with hair, carpet fibers and string. Remove the beater bar from the machine and manually spin the motor armature shaft (where the belt contacts the motor) to see that the motor armature shaft spins freely. Remove the bearings from the end of the beater bar (they won't come off easily so you may have to use a prying tool such as a screwdriver). Try to spin the bearings. If they are fouled, dribble some rubbing alcohol into the bearing (I use a spray bottle... it's much neater) and turn the bearings while keeping them soaked with alcohol until they spin freely without ratcheting. Drop some 30 weight engine oil into the bearings until they are saturated, then clean the outsides of the bearings with a clean rag (no alcohol) until the outsides of the bearings are completely dry and no oil drips out of them (don't want the oil to attract dirt). You'll probably need to replace the belt. Reassemble the machine and it should work for you.

Belt no longer turns the brush


JKGonzo:
You'll need to open the vacuum head and remove the beater bar. Clean up the bearings at each end of the beater bar and reassemble the head.

Beater bar is not turning... but vacuum is sucking fine.


Hello. Usually when the beater bar is not turning it is due to the belt breaking. The fix is to get a new belt and install it. Be sure to use a Eureka belt to get the best results.
Kindly rate my answer as helpful. Thanks. Joe

Vacuum turns on and suction in hose works, beater bar won't turn


If you hear the motor in the head running and the beater bar isn't rotating, you probably need a drive belt. With the power off, make sure you can rotate the beater bar freely by hand, if it isn't bound up.. then locate and remove the baseplate screws to gain access to the beater bar itself, you'll see a drive belt pulley system and chances are, a broken belt. Replace it with a new one by pulling the beater bar assembly out of the housing and plcing the belt onto the motor shaft pulley as well as the beater bar pulley.. nest the beater bar back into the holder and reinstall the cover. Hope that helps !
