If you are talking about the brush that picks up debris off of your carpet, one way is to see how soft the bristles have become. I work on Oreck vacuums a lot and as they age they will get very soft and they will also get shorter as they are used. Most of the vacuums that I work on will present the problems of getting shorter and that is when you would replace them. One way that you could check is to take a flat ruler or some other piece of hard, flat material and lay it across the brush opening and turn the brush by hand and see if any of the bristles stick up beyond your ruler. If they do not, then you need to replace the brush. Hope this helps!

Why are the brushes not spinning?


Hi Liz, if your brushes are still in good shape and do not need replacing then I would see if something else isn't broken or busted. You can always check for an obstruction in the brushes or remove the brush assembly & then reseat the brush assembly. Before doing so you should remove both Tanks from your Hoover. Then there are two buttons on top of the Nozzle Assembly that holds the brushes. You will need to release these two buttons on top, then tilt the handle of the unit backwards and this should let the brush assemble fall out of place. Inspect the brush assembly for any obstruction and even check to see if all the brushes still spin okay. If all looks good then align the post on top of the brush assembly with the hole on the bottom of the nozzle assembly and then snap the brush assembly back into place. I know this might sound crazy but did you first check to make sure that you did not have the switch set to "Wet\Dry Pickup." This will stop the brushes from turning as the switch needs to be in the other position to turn.

I need a "Bearing Assembly" for roller brush 61445-1,I Have a GE 106575


Probably should just go to a repair shop and they should be able to order one for you, that is if they are available by themselfs. Or if you have a store where you live that sells vacuum parts, you could go there.
