Hi!, This is Jim with Crucial Vacuum,

Try manually rotating your brush roll to help uncover any hidden debris. Also do this to see if the brush roll can turn freely and that there is no resistance. Take note of the brush rolls bristles. If they are worn down or loose it's time to replace your brush roll.

Next check your vacuums belt. After regular usage your vacuums belt will stretch out, lessening the tension on your brush roll. Lesser tension leads to lack of suction and movement from your brush roll. Your vacuums belt should be replaced about every 3 months.

Should you need any replacement parts for your vacuum in the future please feel free to order direct from Crucial Vacuum with free shipping and an exclusive 10% coupon for Fixya.com readers, use code: FIXYA10

HOw do I get the brush roller to operate on my NV400


Hi, it's Allie from Crucial Vacuum!

To make your Shark Rotator Professional Upright Vacuum's roller brush to run properly, make sure the nozzle or floor base is flat against the floor and the unit's handle is tilted back and engage the brushroll setting. If your unit's red light is illuminated on the floor power nozzle, your unit has a blockage and will not allow the roller brush to run efficiently. Check your unit for blockages, hair strands or debris tangled in the roller brush and/or dirty filters, these may all cause a blockage and loss of suction in your unit.

Last, make sure the canister is properly installed and engaged, making sure it is correctly making an electrical connection with the floor nozzle.

I don't know what model you own, but all the models I owned did have a driving belt for the brushes. Usually situated at the bottom and can be accessed by removing the screws from the bottom cover. Hope this helps!

My sebo does not seem to be picking up stuff off carpet, what can i do. When I use the hose apart from the vacum it does having sucking power.


Unlike most vacuum cleaners, the Sebo Felix has two separate motors - one for the suction and one to drive the brush roll - so there are several things to check. You say the hose has suction, so the problem is in the lower part of the machine. First, check that there's no blockage in the base of the machine, then check that the brush roll is actually rotating when the machine's switched on. If there's no blockage and the brush roll is rotating, then the problem is simply that the brush bristles are worn and you need a new brush roll. If the brush roll is not rotating, listen to hear if the motor is running - if it is, then you need a new drive belt. If the motor is not running, there's an electrical problem and you may need professional help. If you need more advice, post a response here and I'll do what I can to help. Good luck!

The belts are probably broken, stretched or worn. I would try replacing the belts if you haven't in a while. You can get the belts you need here:

I have a hoover elite 200 it did not have a belt on it when i got it and i cant find the drive shaft.


You must remove the lid of the vac and find the pulley end of the brush. directly behind it one hand length you will see a small silver shaft. If the shaft is other than silver it is coated with burned rubber. or rust and dirt.
Clean off the burned rubber polishing the shaft with wet dry sandpaper . Then rotate by hand to test for any blockage in the motor fan. Also rotate the brush roll to see that it spins freely. Using a genuine hoover ELITE belt wrap the belt around the motor shaft and brush roll and use the brush to stretch the belt forward as you lower the brush into place. Once seated , rotate the brush again to see that the belt is turning, then reinstall the lid. Do not pick up anything larger than your fingernail or you will blow the fan on this unit.
