Why did the brush roller stop spinning?


With the cleaner unplugged, turn the unit over and look inside the opening where the brush is located. Do you see the clogging of the brush with lots of hair? If so, you will need to disassemble it to remove the hair. In any case, you will probably need to take off the cover to see if there is an obstruction jamming the brush. Also, check to make sure that motor for the brush is getting power. If there is an electrical cable on the outside connecting the brush housing to the rest of the vacuum cleaner, check if it is disconnected. When you have the cleaner on, do the lights glow? Do you hear the motor running? Try the above and report back.

Roller brushes won't work


Remember, this brush is belt-driven (not air-driven), so if the brush stops working, then there is probably a problem with the belt. The device is likely set to stop the brush from spinning if the belt tension is not correct. My guess is that the belts have become too loose, or there is a malfunction with the sensory mechanism which detects that.

I will trust that your product does have the in-house warranty.

Brushes not rotating


If your unindentified vacuum cleaner is an upright, the belt may be stretched and unable to rotate the roller brush. The roller brush ends could be clogged with debris, preventing it from rotating freely. The solution is to disconnect your vacuum cleaner from the power and turn it upside down for inspection. It may be necessary to remove the roller brush and remove the end caps to clean inside. Replace any worn parts

Brushes don't move. vacuum motor works


The brushes on the roller are driven by a wide, short rubber belt. These belts get old, worn, overheated, and break periodically.

It should be a fairly simple matter to unscrew & remove the plate, revealing the belt and roller assembly. You can get a replacement belt at Sears or nearly any vacuum shop.

While replacing the belt, it would be a good idea to take scissors or a knife (careful!) and remove the hair & other material that's wound around your roller. One thing that can cause a belt to break is when you're vacuuming & accidently pick up a string, a shoelace, a piece of cord... you know how fast that gets wound around the brush roller and locks it up? At that point, the belt is still trying to rotate the roller (which won't rotate)... and within seconds, the belt will get extremely hot. This can cause it to break, or reduce its life significantly.

This should be an easy fix, requiring nothing more than a replacement belt and a screwdriver. Good luck!

Are you sure it is beltless? What model do you have? Looking at another manual there may be a seperate on off switch for the brushes but would need to know your model to be sure.

Hello,
I would advise you to ALWAYS to FIRST UNPLUG YOUR VACUUM before beginning any service procedure. Your problem is that you may need to change the belt every 4 to 6 months as a recommended belt change on the vacuum and also keep an eye on the brushes or brush strips, they also help in the vacuum working properly. Here is a typical belt change on a Hoover. Normally there are screws, clips or levers that would remove the bottom plate or if that does not work then the top cover will come off and that will expose the belt. Once that is off and the belt is exposed then cut off the old belt and then lift up the brushroll on the pulley end and install the new belt around the pulley end and re-install the brushroll. Then use a belt puller or a screwdriver with a bent right or left end to stretch the belt onto the motor pulley and then track the belt in a straight line and reverse you steps in the reinstall of the top cover or bottom plate. So if you need further assistance, please feel free to contact your local vacuum cleaner dealer in your area or in the yellow pages, or contact the factory phone number or website to further assist you with your questions.

Hello,
I would advise you to ALWAYS to FIRST UNPLUG YOUR VACUUM before beginning any service procedure.
There are 2 types of Turbo Brushes, the electric type driven by a power head or power nozzle most likely used on a canister type vacuum or a central vacuum driven by electricity and there is an air driven power head. In either case the belt should be riding on the brushroll pulley on the end or if it is an air driven power head, sometimes the pulley section is in the middle, and the other end would run off the motor pulley / shaft. If you have a flat belt it is suggested that you change the belt every 4 to 6 months, if you have a geared belt, suggested change would be one year or so. I am not sure on the Brand of turbo brush you have, but you can refer to your local vacuum cleaner dealer in your area or the yellow pages, or contact the manufacturer for a phone # or website address, some times if you have a air driven turbo power brush it may be cost efficient to replace the brush instead of repairing the turbo brush. Just a suggestion.
Example: www.turbobrush.com – this may or may not be the website address not knowing the brand name.
