Miele 228 power brush stopped working


Does the motor on the Head Run but the Brush does not turn... change the Belt, the brush head is operated by a rubber belt this is so it has no direct drive so if you suck up something then you ruin a belt and not the motor. Besides you should change the belt as per MFG directions. I change ours at Least 2 times a year and if you do.. say Pull in a Rug corner and it smells like Burnt Rubber? ... you just decreased your life of the Belt.... you'd be surprised on how well a New Belt helps your Vac pick up things. Change the bag often too, do not wait till it can pickup no more. The bag is Not meant to be FULL to be changed, besides it keeps Mites in the trash where they belong and not a breading ground in your closet... If you have a bag-less clean and rinse (All Filters Every Vac has a Filter even the Bag-Less ones) and let dry after a day of vacuuming follow MFG directions, Hope this helps.

My dyson hose sucks good but, when i put handle down, it won't **** but brush does turn


I just had the same problem....suction from wand, but no suction from soleplate, the brush bar spins. Did all the troubleshooting steps on dyson.com but they didn't work...dyson.com says need to take to repairman, being a diyer I went to search engine. I didn't find a fix, however I found one myself....it appears the vac can get stuck in floor mode or in between modes....the dial on top on dc07 ....selector of floor or carpet..try pushing it back and forth to see if that puts it in carpet mode...check for suction or try vacuuming...if that doesn't work, looking at vac from behind vac on the right hand side is the selector dial..on top of bottom portion of vac.....with vac in upright position, recline it as if about to vacuumn floor...look down at selector area ...you should be able to see a rectangular type button exposed ..push this to reset position...you may have to push it a few times...then try vacuumniing.....I finally had suction from soleplate!! Another tipoff to this problem is my selector dial would not stay in place would pop I to carpet by itself, but only halfway....fro a long time my vac would work but not very well...had to go over same area.4-5 times..What a workout! The first time I contacted dyson via tele the rep had me remove some stuff and I was able to look at area below selector...what I saw was two holes, one hole was only over the other hole half way...hence at that time I had only part suction since holes were not aligning properly....I read somewhere as a further tip to get suction to engage, while vac is reclined step on front edge of vac head it said you'll get more suction that way, I haven't tried that, but thought it may help someone

My broan cv30 purchased in 1996 carpet power head unit sucks up dirt and rocks but will not pick string or yarns up from carpeting. I find myself picking it up. It is sucking fine dirt and small...


It's possible you simply need a new belt or roller brush. Place the power nozzle upside-down turn the vacuum on. Ensure the brush turns. If it doesn't, the belt has broken or is too worn to turn it. Replace the belt. Make sure the tension is properly set prior to reassembling the power nozzle.
Next, with the power nozzle upside down, run the flat of your palm across the brush area. If you can barely feel the bristles, it needs replaced. A good brush will loosen the yarn and strings, but needs to be cleaned periodically.
As long as the powerhead motor is running, there is no need to replace it. If it's not running, look for a reset button and press it. There could also be a broken wire, loose connection, or bad switch causing a power head motor to not operate..

My vacuum doesnt **** dirt from the floor but sucks dirt with the nozzle.


Probably have a clogged intake from the beater bar thru to the vac system.. Try this.. with the vac unplugged, flip the vac over so you can get to the bottom of the vac head near where the brush rotates.. then depending on the model.. remove the cover to access the brush ( called a beater bar).
Once the cover has been removed ( may require removing several screws) .. look at the beater bar and make sure the belt is hooked up.. you should be able to lift that brush assembly out of the housing to expose the duct where dirt travels into the bag.. that path ( including the flex hose) is probably clogged up...clean out any debris found there.. ( if you have access to another vacuum..try sucking that junk out with it or use a stick or coat hanger to pry anything lodged in there out.. When that is clear, reassemble things and try it again.. Hope this helps you

I had the same problem with my vacuum. I called in for technical service and was told to push the "reset button". It turns out that there is a small red button right next to the dirt indicator light. I pushed the button, plugged the vacuum back in and started it up and it worked like a charm! :) Hope this helps!

No power to head of Kenmore Progressive canister vac


The extension wands are defective and have trouble with their plug connectors on each end. The power head has a reset button on top right but no lights mean no power which means the wand isn't connecting the power to anything.

Sears has a new replacement -- too bad it isn't recalled so you could get it for free ($106.59 + tax + shipping). 2nd sweeper -- same problem.

1st sweeper: I just took needlenose pliers and pulled connectors out a little further (Too bad I can't seem to make the 2nd sweeper work with this easily. It might be one of the connectors or the wiring harness inbetween with a break.) Can't buy the wiring harness for this or connectors, just the wand.

If anyone has a working wand you want to sell me email me at hiwhatsnew@hotmail.com. Thanks!

Power nozzle not working on my vac but does on another vac


Is there a reset button somewhere on the power nozzle? Most of these have a breaker to prevent the motor from burning out.
