Question about Vacuums
When I try to sweep the brushes do not rotate. What is the problem?
More than likely you have a broken belt. If you try to spin the brush by hand with the vacuum unplugged and it spins freely, your belt is broken, or has come off the roller or motor shaft. If it will not turn freely or does not turn at all when you try by hand, you may need to replace both the belt and the brush. You can first look at both ends of the brush to see if there is a build up of hair or string etc. around the brush bearings. If there is clean that off and see if the bearings spin freely. Also, let us know what type of vacuum you have so that we can give you more detailed information that would help you better. Hope this helps!
