Regarding my Shark 12-Volt cordless Hand Vacuum, the rotating brush has stopped turning. The motor is in tip top shape and I have made sure that it is not clogged with dirt or string. Please help me.

I have done everything I know how to do to fix this problem with this beater bar rotating brush. I have taken off of the vacuum completely to clean it out, making sure that no string or dirt was the problem. Please help me, because I use it every day!

The brush of my shark cordless vacuum keeps stopping


Hello, this is Ava with Think Crucial.

There are a number of reasons why your brush roller has stopped moving. General maintenance to your vacuum is crucial and will help it work at peak performance.

First things first lets focus on the brush roller. Unplug the vacuum and turn it on its side. Look for any noticeable clumps of debris or hair strands that may be caught in the brush roller. Remove these obstructions, probably best to do so with a scissor if it's hair or long pieces of carpet fibers. After removing the debris try manually rotating the brush roller to uncover other hidden clogs. Another thing to take note of is the condition of the bristles on the roll itself. Are they loose or worn down? These are signs that your brush roller is in need of replacing.

While checking out your brush roll you might as well take a look at your vacuum's belt. Your belt should be replaced about every three months. After regular usage, the belt will stretch out, lessening the tension on the brush roller. Lesser tension diminishes the brush roller's turn rate and speed. If the belt feels loose then it certainly is affecting your vacuums suction as well as your brush roll not moving at all.

Cordless Shark Vacuum Brush Bar Stops Working


My cordless Shark Vacuum brush bar would stop working each time after a few minutes of use. I was getting ready to throw the vacuum cleaner away, but decided to pull the bottom cover and check it first. I did the following modification and now it works great!

Just a few notes before attempting this tip: You need to be carefulafter this modification if you see the brush bar stop as this couldmean the bar is really jammed and there is a risk of the brush barmotor burning out. Most of the time disabling any fuse or circuit breaker is a very bad idea and could ruin equipment and even cause a fire. In the case of this tip, only consider the modification if you areready to get rid of the Shark because of the brush bar problem. Another option is to replace the circuit breaker, however consideringthe time and money involved vs. the cost of the vacuum cleaner it mayor may not be worth it to you. I did this modification to my cordlessShark about 4 months ago, and have had no further problems with it. I takes about 15 minutes to do this modification using a screw driver and wire cutters.

1. With the vacuum cleaner off, check the brush bar by manually rotating is with you hand. It should not be jammed or very difficult to turn. If so, remove the brush bar and clean it. Try the vacuum again. If you still have a problem with the brush bar stopping, proceed to next step.
2. Remove bottom cover around brush bar / motor.
3. There are two wires going to the brush bar motor, one wire includes a small circuit breaker.
4. Clip the circuit breaker out of the wire and reconnect the wire straight to the motor.
5. Re-install bottom cover.

The brush roll works for a second than red light goes on and it stops. No obstructions to stop the rotation


First make sure that there is no threads wrapped around the roller brush at each end. Next place a couple drops of motor oil in the crack at each end of the roller brush to lubricate the bearings. Do not over oil or you will get oil on your carpet. Now try starting the vacuum on the kitchen floor.. If it still shuts off, then the motor windings are shorted out, meaning the motor is defective and needs replaced. If the vacuum cleaner costs about $ 100.00 , you would be better off buying a brand new vacuum cleaner, rather than replacing the motor.

Why does my brush turn?


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

Shark SV736R motorized brush won't rotate


The 2 metal pins of the motorized brush are not in contact with the vacuum cleaner. or the Motorized brush is clogged up. You have mentioned that it is cleaned, but still give a thorough inspection. For the metal pins, firmly insert the motorized brush into the air-intake nozzle. This will connect the motorized nozzle to the unit power supply.
