Hello, this is Ava with Think Crucial.

There are a number of reasons why your brush roller has stopped moving. General maintenance to your vacuum is crucial and will help it work at peak performance.

First things first lets focus on the brush roller. Unplug the vacuum and turn it on its side. Look for any noticeable clumps of debris or hair strands that may be caught in the brush roller. Remove these obstructions, probably best to do so with a scissor if it's hair or long pieces of carpet fibers. After removing the debris try manually rotating the brush roller to uncover other hidden clogs. Another thing to take note of is the condition of the bristles on the roll itself. Are they loose or worn down? These are signs that your brush roller is in need of replacing.

While checking out your brush roll you might as well take a look at your vacuums belt. Your belt should be replaced about every three months. After regular usage, the belt will stretch out, lessening the tension on the brush roller. Lesser tension diminishes the brush roller's turn rate and speed. If the belt feels loose then it certainly is affecting your vacuums suction as well as your brush roll not moving at all.

Shark navigator freestyle just stopped picking up


Usually when a vacuum stops picking up it is because the brush roll isn't spinning or isn't spinning fast enough when vacuuming. It may spin fast when you look at it but not when you put it on the carpet. It takes a good tight belt and a good brushroll to vacuum properly.

Shark rotator nv340 roller brush is not spinning


just found this from another fixya member....There are a number of reasons why your brush roll has stopped spinning on your Shark Rotator. Here are a few things to check for when trying to fix your Shark.

First things first lets focus on the brush roll. Unplug the vacuum and turn it on its side. Look for any noticeable clumps of debris or hair strands that may be caught in the brush roll.

While checking out your brush roll you might as well take a look at your vacuums belt. This could be the other reason why your brush roll has stopped spinning. Your belt should be replaced about every three months. After regular usage, the belt will stretch out, lessening the tension on the brush roll.

The brush roll works for a second than red light goes on and it stops. No obstructions to stop the rotation


First make sure that there is no threads wrapped around the roller brush at each end. Next place a couple drops of motor oil in the crack at each end of the roller brush to lubricate the bearings. Do not over oil or you will get oil on your carpet. Now try starting the vacuum on the kitchen floor.. If it still shuts off, then the motor windings are shorted out, meaning the motor is defective and needs replaced. If the vacuum cleaner costs about $ 100.00 , you would be better off buying a brand new vacuum cleaner, rather than replacing the motor.

Brush spins once then stops.


I don't know this machine but I'd check the bearings on the ends of the brush to see if they are spinning freely. If it has a drive belt try changing it, if it is an impeller drive check the vanes for damage.

By the way this machine I believe has a 5 year warrenty,

What causes my Shark Vacuum to work only intermittently?


If the brush roller operation is intermittent, there may be hair jammed inside the end caps. The brush roller can be removed and the end caps also for inspection. Intermittent operation also can be caused by a stretched drive belt.
The periodic failure to pick up may be caused by something such as a ball of hair migrating through your vacuum cleaner and stopping from time to time to test your patience

Brush roll won't turn on for the shark NV22L vacuum. the light on the brush roll is dark, not red or green


Atthe bottom of the vacuuam are screws to take off...two of them are near the rear wheel assembly....two of them are behind the front mini wheels (just pry the front mini wheels so that they pop out...they pop back in)
Remove all of the screws. Remove the bottom from the top..they come apart in two pieces. Ceck the belt on the bottom piece. Slide the roller out starting from the end opposite from the motor end. With the roller off, slacken the the belt so that it misses the gear on the motor (you will have to hold it with your hand). Plug in the vacuum. Turn the power on to the roller on position. The motor should work and the green light should be on. If the motor doesn't work, then it is defective. If it does work, turn off, unplug and shoot the gear and the two ends of the roller with WD-40. reassemble. good luck.

Do i want the green light on or off on kirby upright


It has nothing to do with the green light. Green light simply indicates that brush roll is spinning. If there is no green light:
1 - belt may be broken
2 - Improperly installed nozzle
3 - wrong brush roll is installed

Properly adjust the nozzle - turn the Kirby on. Keep lowering the nozzle till it touched the carpet and you will hear change in sound. Then lower it by one more click.

Replacing brush roller on my KIrby g6 limited edition


You need a new belt. When the green light goes out, that means your brushroll has stopped spinning. Here's how to change it....

Hope it helps....
