Hi, this is Jim with Crucial Vacuum,

It sounds like the beater bar may have become dislodged after sucking up the fine cord. First thing to do is turn off the vacuum and turn it on its side to examine the beater bar. Check both sides of the bar to make sure it is in place. Usually these bars lock into place fairly easily.

The next thing to take note of if there is any debris lodged in the bottom of your vacuum or around the bar itself. Remove the debris by manually rotating the vacuum and using a razor to cut away anything around the bar.

Since your belt is fine this should solve the problem.

I was running my vac when it caught the fringe on a throw. I turned it off and carefully pulled it out but now I don't have any suction and it's not cleaning the carpet.


Don't know the model too well but the beater bar is what goes when that happens(the brush that goes around right there on the intake of the sweeper) it has a belt that makes it turn and you probably broke the belt or burnt it up or it came off so it is the belt that is the problem. That will give you those symptoms because the beater bar (rotating brush) is what lifts the dirt up so it can be sucked in.

Beater not turning but belt good. beater motor not turning but turns manually


Hi Dan:

check both ends of the beater bar. Pet/Human hair, thread, strings and even dirt can really get wound up in between the plastic ends and the bar. It might look ok but it won't turn effortlessly. If you find that is the case, you might be able to fish the junk out but from experience it's just better to buy a new beater bar or roller part.

The beater bar will not turn


Hello rebh. Generally when the vacuum beater bar will not turn it is because the belt that turns this beater bar has broken.

That said, most of the dyson's require you to buy a beater bar assembly which includes the belt. Any vacuum cleaner repair shop will have this part. OR go to this link http://www.searspartsdirect.com/partsdirect/brands-products/Dyson-Inc-Parts/Vacuum-Parts

Beater bar is not coming on- belt is on, canister is empty. Vacuum runs but no beater bar


Remove the beater bar and clean the debris from the bar and the end bearings. Remove the belt (remember how it is installed) and check it for any damaged areas. Make sure the bar turns freely before the belt is attached to the motor drive. Hope this helps!

The beater bar on my Dyson DC14 All Floors Bagles vacuum cleaner doesn't turn. There is no hair or thread caught up in it. All air-flow areas have been checked and there are no blockages that we could...


If it is not on the bare floor setting then you most likely have a belt issue it is not an easy fix I am sorry to say if your mechanically inclined I can tell you how to replace it.

Vacuum won't pick up any dirt - there's no roller marks when vacuuming carpet. Roller does turn and filters are clean.


Hi,

When you turn the roller, you should feel some resistance from the belt. Remove the base blate that surrounds the beater bar. Check the belt. Take care in removing the beater bar, so you can get it back in the same way it comes out. Clean the beater bar while you have the bottom open. If you remove the beater bar to replace the belt, take the time to inspect the cavity behind the beater bar where the vacuum picks up. That is where vacuums usually stop up. Reassemble the vacuum. If necessary, slip the belt over the motor shaft and then slide the roller undre the belt. Install the beater bar back in the sockets and replace the base plate.
Best regards,

Belt


Hi. This isn't a hard repair at all.... Unplug your vacuum. Turn the vacuum beater bar side up. Locate the catches or screws that hold the plate on that covers the beater bar. Remove the plate. The beater bar sits in sockets where it attaches to the vacuum, so remove carefully, making note how it comes out. This will make reassembly much easier. Place your new belt on the motor shaft, then onto the beater bar while you replace the beater bar back into the sockets. Test your work by revolving the beater bar a bit by hand. Reinstall the cover plate. That's it!

Regards! --W/D--
