Remove the bottom cover and replace the broken drive belt. Check that the brush will rotate freely--likely everything is jammed with hair and dust. The brush assembly should just lift out of the case and the end bearings will pull off. The brush needs to be removed to install a new belt anyway. There should be a diagram that shows how to install the belt (it has a half-turn twist).

EL8505 brush will spin at only certain handle positions. The brush is unhindered and the belt is in position and in good order. The vacuum feels like it is sufficient. When the brush is not spinning the...


Many vacuums have a switch positioned somewhere by the pivot point that is pressed when the catch is released and the handle taken out of the 90 degree storage position. I haven't worked on an EL8505 but I have fixed a couple other brand / model vacuums that were behaving the same way you describe in your problem. In most cases it is either a perfectly good switch that had moved out of position because the framing it is supposed to sit in is broke or worn down or a bad switch that only works when the plunger was in just the right spot.
The link is a parts blowup of your vacuum and I think A-26 is the part you need. It appears to have both the bracket and the switch in one part. Make sure where it mounts doesn't have any damage preventing it from staying in the right place and alignment.

The spin brushes on my hoover steam And vac don't


Either the pin on the brushes that attaches to the motor shaft is broken, or the motor is dead. Did you check the switch on the front of the unit to make sure it wasn't turned off?

My brusg stopped turning after sucking up a shoe


Hi There is a reset switch on your Dyson that needs to be pressed when something gets stuck in the brushes. The reset switch helps protect the motor that spins the brush from damaging if something gets stuck inside the brushes. There is a little red pole that sits up behind the brushes on the vacuum head, I believe it's on the left side of the floor head as if you were behind the machine vacuuming. Try pushing this reset switch first. Did this fix your problem? If no, please let me know and I'll be more then happy to do some more advanced diagnosing with you.

The spinscrub brushes won't spin when any pressure is applied to the machine. What is the reason for this?


There is an air inlet screen behind the brush indicator....if this is plugged with hair and debris, this will cause the brushes to stop spinning....also, if the mackine is upright or if the recovery tank is not in place, then the brushes will not spin.

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.

Brushes are not moving at all


There should be a switch to adjust the speed of the brushes. if it is off the brushes will not spin. The only time the brushes are supposed to spin is when the handle is tilted back, and the switch is on.

Roomba keeps saying clean brushes yet are clean!


Make sure you take off the little cap at the end (the one that spins -- just grab it and pull it straight off) and clean under it too. The rest of the brush may look perfectly clean but what happens is that hair gets stuck under spinning cap and, like a slowly growing washer, it pushes the whole brush toward the gear box. When it gets pushed over enough, the large yellow ring starts to rub against the side of the brush deck making it harder for the motor to turn the brush and you get that "remove and clean brushes" message.

Brushes not working


brushes not turning are usually caused by the turbine bearings have seized. The turbine cost is about $35 average. on the bottom you can check a pull out filter to clean. there are also 2 screws that are recessd check by hand for tightness that hold the turbine. checkthe brushes for cleaning and free of debris. check the square shaft on the brushes as well. take it to a trusted vac shop who works on hoovers if you are not mechanically inclined for this type of repair.

Brushes not spinning....


My status light came on, the vac beeped twice and stopped. I noticed my brushes weren't spinning. I took an eyeglass screwdriver and took off the center screw that holds on the brushes. I cleaned the shaft that the brushes spin on. replaced brushes and it works great! I just did this now and it is still running. my status light problem is fixed my roomba is 4 years old and I am on my 2nd battery. Seems to have fixed the problem. FYI it was wrapped with hair, dirt and it was greasy.
