The belt is broke. you can buy a new one for around 5-10 dollars at target or walmart, or loews or homedepot.take the screws of the bottom panel to expose belt. you will have to pull out the beater bar to replace the belt. just pull on it after the bottom plate is removed the beater bar just slides out. slide the new belt down the beater bar then pull the belt over the spinning pin. now stretch the beater back to its original position it should slide right in. replace the bottom plate and your back in business

SOURCE: bottom on the vaccum the spin brush will not spin at all

Double check for anything that might be holding it from spinning (shoe lace, string, hair, ribbon, etc)

If the brushes are free to move by hand, you most likely have either a broken belt or a belt that simply came off the motor. What you'll need to do in either case, is open up the vacuum cover. The screws are usually located at the bottom of the vacuum (where the brushes are) and remove all the visible screws you see.

Most of the time (being that I don't know what kind of vac you have, that is enough to remove the top cover off for you to inspect either the motor or the belt which attaches to the motor. I know on my hoover, the belt slips off very easily, so I always need to keep my screwdriver handy to perform this.

Hope this helps.

SOURCE: Hoover Empower Widepath, brush won't spin.

The belt needs to be changed, it's probably spinning in place which is causing the smell (burnt rubber).

Why beter bar dosent spin while in the vaccum mode only in up right position ?


Hello! The air pressure from the motor is most likely spinning the brushes in the upright position. This vacuum has a brush-roll on/off pedal located on the left side of the cleaner. To activate the brushes, power the vacuum on, recline the handle and then press the brush-roll on/off pedal. The brushes should begin to spin. If they do not the belt may need to be replaced. Hope this helps!

I cant get my hoover vaccum brush to spin


First be sure the switch/circuit breaker on top of the nozzle is on. The brush also will not turn unless the handle is released and tilted back. This model of Hoover has a gear drive to turn the brushes. This was VERY prone to problems, and Hoover discontinued making replacement parts for it several years ago.

You have either broken the belt or more likely the clutch easiest is to replace cleaner head assembly £75ish or call Dyson and arrange a service if you're not DIY inclined but check belt !st

The main brush will not spin


I would guess the belt is broken. That happens often. Get a correct belt. Remove the brush roller. Wrap the belt around the roller and drive peg. Reasemble -- easier said than done, but keep trying.

Beaters stop when vaccuming rug...didn't when new


I believe you need to change the belt that drives the brushes. When it gets stretched out, it will just spin on the axle of the motor or spin on the brush and smoke.
