Lubricate each end of the roller brush with motor oil. Bearings inside the roller brush need lubrication for the brush to turn easily. Remove any pieces of thread that have wrapped around the roller brush. If it does not spin after doing the above steps, then either the belt is slipping or the bearings are severely damaged in the roller brush. Then you need either a smaller belt or a new roller brush.

SOURCE: Dirt Devil overheating Belt Okay

the belt is probably worn , so when the spool turns it heats up and looses friction with the belt.

SOURCE: When we changed the belt the new belt broke right away and the brush roller wouldn't spin. My husband cleaned off the roller and got it moving slowly again, but when we went to re-attach everythin

the thing you call wheels are actually called roller bearings that fit at both ends of the brush-roll there probably seized up you can get a new brush-roll with bearings from the link below.

Vac is hard to push,mainly foward


In the past when I have noticed similar issues with a vacuum of my own I found the the roller brush was not spinning. I see that you replaced the belt and roller brush already, have you looked underneath while it's running to verify that it actually spins?
Other thoughts: height adjustment for type of flooring being cleaned and also possibly seized wheels(maybe WD40 could help)

Hoover Windtunnel model U6485200B troubleshooting brush not spinning


Hi! The brush-roll feature needs to be engaged for the belt to tighten, so when checking the belt it will appear to be loose. Be sure you have replaced both belts on the vacuum with genuine Hoover parts. This unit takes belt 38528034 and 38528035. Also, make sure the vacuum is on carpet mode. Follow the link to view the instruction manual which provides instructions and illustrations on changing the belt to be sure it is assembled properly.

Hi,dyson dc25 overdrive,my brusher's wont go round,i have cleaned the brusher's and filter,loads of suction.the belt is intact and the roller move's feely by hand,could it be the switch


Hi Stephen,

I'm sorry to hear you've had difficulty with your DC25 Overdrive. If the brush bar won't rotate, and you've already checked the cleaner head is free of obstructions, it's likely it just needs resetting.

You might like to take a look at the video below to make sure everything is correct with the machine. Once you've done this, if you turn the machine on, recline it into the vacuuming position, then press the silver brush control switch twice, this should reset the brush bar.

If you'd like any further assistance or advice, please give our Helpline a call on 0800 298 0298. Just to let you know, calls are free from UK landlines, and the Helpline is available from 7am-10pm, 7 days a week.

Brush does not spin


Here's a parts diagram for the machine. It took me a bit to find it. Dyson doesn't want to give any kind of parts diagrams or such that I could find. Anyway, I'd say your drive belt is probably either broken or slipping. More than likely the first one. Just make sure that the Brush bar isn't all jambed up with hair and whatnot. Which you've probably already done, but I fixed my neighbors about a year ago, and her's was so clogged up that it would barely turn with the belt intact.
The diagram will also give you a good idea of how they go together and what parts will come off of what. Hope this helps.

I have a bissell powerforce bagless.that is melting belts. i've cleaned the brush bar and put a new belt on only to have the new one melted again. i don't know what could possibly be wrong with it.


Make sure all the pulleys the belt attaches to are spinning properly, if one is stuck or not spinning fast enough that will easily generate enough friction to melt the belt each time you replace it. Might need to replace other parts, or clean out more than just the brushes.

Where is the belt located on my hoover steam shampoer


There is probably not a belt. The brushes on the carpet cleaner head and attachments work from air and there is a roller bearing deep inside that will wear out and the brushes won't turn. I've found no way to fix this. I consider it a design defect.

Got Dirt Devil Featherlite,keeps burning the belt out immediately and there is only one way to put the belt on...have put on 4 new belts.....what up?


Hi There,

When a belt breaks immediately after installing it, this can ONLY mean one of two things. The first is that the belt was put back on incorrectly, and it may be pinched underneath of the beater bar. This would cause it to break immediately, but I seriously doubt after 4 belts that you put the belt on wrong all 4 times.

The second, and more probable cause is that your roller brush has gone bad. This could be why the belt broke in the first place. In order to test to make sure the brush is bad, unscrew the bottom plate, and remove the brush like you were changing the belt.

Hold the brush at the very end on both sides, using only your finger tips. While holding just the bearing caps, try spinning the bar with your thumbs. Does the brush spin freely in your hands? It should spin completely around 4-5 times on each spin. If the brush will not spin, or if you feel any resistance to it spinning, this is the reason why your belt continues to break.

If the brush can not spin, the motor shaft will continue to try and spin the belt, but since the brush doesn't spin, and the belt doesn't move, the motor shaft will just burn right through the back end of the belt.

If your machine is actually the model that's listed on this Fixya repair page, the Dirt Devil Featherlite model M085845, then your machine uses the following roller brush:
Dirt Devil Plastic Brush Roll for Model 085845 Part # 2-881020-000

The next time that change the belt, install the brush back into the machine, but this time pull up on the belt towards the brush to make sure that the belt spins freely, and spins the brush as well. If the belt doesn't spin the brush, there's some issue, and the belt will break as soon as you turn the machine on.

I hope this helped you. If you find out that you don't need a new brush, feel free to use the comment section here on the repair page and let me know, I'd be happy to walk you through some more advanced diagnosing. If you found this helpful, please be so kind and rate my repair and / or leave feedback for me.

Thanks so much,
