Question about Shark 12-Volt Cordless Hand Vac
The rotating brush will not turn. Everything else is working just fine.
HI, it's Jim from Crucial Vacuum!
There are a few factors that could contribute to your vacuums brush roll not turning. The first thing you should check is the brush roll itself.
For the most part you can fix a brush roll with a quick cleaning or by oiling it's bearings, however, once the bristles endure too much wear and tear, it is time to replace it. Do you notice any hair strands wrapped around the brush roll, how about long strands of carpet fiber or general debris? Try manually rotating the brush roll and cutting away any strands that may be caught. take a look at your brush roll and see how the bristles look. If they look worn out and the bristles look loose it's time to replace it.
Also, be sure to check your belt. Your vacuums belt should be replaced about every three months. After regular usage, the belt will stretch out, lessening the tension on the brush roll. Lesser tension diminishes the brush roll's turn rate, speed and can lead to the brush roll not turning at all.

Most likely the belt that connects the motor to the brush has broken and needs to be replaced. A relatively easy fix.
