How to replace Simplicity vac brush roll strips?

How do you replace the brush roll strips on a Riccar/Simplicity metal brush roll?

I have removed the clutch assembly and the shaft from the metal roller. There's a metal cap remaining on one end - on the other end, where the clutch assembly goes, there's a plastic cap. There's a bearing in each end.

The old strips need to slide out and the new ones slide in, but the caps remaining on the roller won't allow the strips to come out.

The caps will come out of the end of the metal roller. They can be difficult if it's been a long time as dirt and grime can build up. Try sticking a flat head screwdriver in and gently twisting to get the caps to slide out.

Most likely the brush motor is bad and not turning, part #2036757, would sell for around $23. To get to it, start taking out screws on the top cover, that motor is under the that top access cover.

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.

SOURCE: Brush Roll belt won't engage on WindTunnel self-propelled

When you had the brush roll off, did the ends turn freely? If not then the brush won't turn and the belt will just slip. You would have to replace the brush roll if either of the ends are frozen. Other then that you would have to remove the top cover to see if there any broken parts, there is a spring loaded asm, it has a black wheel that will push the V belt when it is in the carpet setting and the handle is in the down position, it could be jammed so the roller is stuck.

Take a flat head screw driver and pry the end cap off. It will come off. You might have some string or hair around it causing it to not turn.

How do I Pull apart a Simplicity Synchrony?


The noise is likely the brush roll or the lower motor fan if you only hear it when you turn on the brush roll. Remove the bottom plate to examine the brush roll, there are screws on the bottom of the vacuum that must be removed so that the top nozzle housing cover can be removed. Remove the screws to take the cover off the nozzle housing from the brushroll to the lower motor so you will be able to inspect the fan in the lower motor. You have a high quality precision vacuum that is not easy to repair without proper training. It may save money and provide better results to have it repaired by a qualified Simplicity or Riccar repair shop.

Why is my carpeting getting fuzzy tips?


You might be vacuuming too much or you may have the wrong brush strips for your style of carpeting. I recommend you take a sample of your carpet to your Riccar dealer and ask them if you have the correct vacuum and brush strips for your type of carpet.

Why does my riccar supralite vacuum makes a loud rattling noise like the roller is banging around?


You have something wrong with your brush roll or you have damaged the fan. Remove the brush roll and belt and turn the vacuum back on, if the noise is gone it is likely something wrong with your brush roll, if the noise persists you probably have a broken fan. You have to remove the motor and fan housing after removing the top cover, unscrew the bolt holding the fan on and install a new fan (you can get one from any Riccar or Simplicity vacuum dealer)

Riccar model rad.7 upright (radiance). roller brush won't turn and red roller brush indicator is on. roller will turn easily by hand and belt is in place. how do i fix this?


As you already know, the red brush indicator light indicates that the brush roll has stopped turning, usually because an object has become stuck in the brush roll. When that happens you should turn the machine off (unplug it also for safety), remove the obstruction and turn the vac back on. That should have cleared the light and allowed your brush to turn again.
Occasionally, you will get debris in the brush roll end caps and the brush roll will spin slower making the sensor think there is an obstruction. You can remove the brush roll, pop the end caps off and clean out any debris to see if that helps.
If none of the above worked it is possible that the brush roll sensor is bad or the circuit board in the machine is bad. You'll need a Riccar service center for that. The good news is your Radiance has a 6 year warranty.
