My Oreck platinum vacuum shuts off after a couple of seconds. Whenever I turn it on it works for 2 seconds then shuts off, any help?


Atek,
You may have received the wrong beater bar for your machine. Some of the Oreck's have an electronic sensor that detects the brush speed and the way they do that is to put a magnet embedded into the brush roll. Turn your vacuum over and spin the brush by hand and look for a metal dot about 1/4" in diameter. It should towards the end opposite of the belt. If you do not see that metal dot, you need to take the brush back to where you bought it and ask for the correct brush. If you ordered online then call them up and ask for a swap. Hope this helps!

I have suction and my roler bar rotates it doesn't make contact with the rug the small under carrage hose doesnt connect with the floor carpet lever i have tried several positions what is wrong?


make sure its upright and replace all of the little parts that have buttons to remove for cleaning...It's possible that one of the 5 or 6 parts that are easily removable just got knocked out of place...your smart, you'll be able to see how they fit together once you take them off. Depending on the age of your dyson, you may need a new brush...I ordered one and the brush bristles are about a 1/4 to 1/2 of and inch longer than my used one.

I placed the new belt on the brush roller like i was suppose to, but brush roller will not turn forward or backward. What am I doing wrong?


Most likely the roller is frozen due to dirt and debris. Follow the instructions to remove the belt and roller. Clean the roller as best you can and at each end where the hard rubber holders are located. Add some WD40 between the brush and these holders and turn by hand until the holders move freely around the brush. Reassemble making sure the belt is on in the correct manner so the brush rotates in the proper direction.

I changed the belt on my bissell Cleanview revolution 3596 twice and both times the belt burned and starting to smoke. I'm not sure what to do now I have two broken belts what could I be doing wrong?


Sounds like the brush that the belt runs (or is supposed to run) is being kept from turning. If you can get the brush out to clean it and lubricate the ends that go into the holder clips, this should solve the problem. With the new belts burning and smoking it appears that the motor is running okay, but as I said, the brush that is supposed to be turning is frozen solid from debris or dirt. Need to free the brush and lubricate the brush holders with some WD40.

Brushes on hoover deluxe steam vac cvarpet cleaner are not rotating. Took out the brush assy and drive spins slowly but with little torque. Cannot seem to open the bottom to see if belt or direct...


(1) Assure the brush shut off lever on the hood is not set to the off position.
(2) Is there still a square pin standing up from the one drive brush? It should be 1/4 square, and about two inches tall. That pin is the drive from the transmission to the brushes.
There are no belts. The transmission is air and gear drive mechanism.

Your belt is either stretched or the wrong size or the brush bushings are worn and allowing the brush to wobble or the motor is loose in its housing. You need to check all.
Rotate the brush and try to wobble it from the pulley end.
Flip the belt inside out, it if appears cupped, cracked or shiney and slips easily on and off the brush it is stretched. Generally this unit needs anew belt evrey 6 months, broken or not, they get hot and stretch. Do not buy a new belt by matching size, a worn belt can be 20-30% oversized and not broken but totally useless.
The motor shaft should be cleaned with W/D 600 grit sand paper. Motor should have no wobble in the shaft

Our vacum isn't picking up @ all.we did have some thread around the brushes, about an inch wide. it has an odor like it is getting hot. the vacumn is about 1-1/2 yrs old. we need help. thanks BETTY COX.


Hi, The most likely cause would be a blockage. If you remove vac hose, does it **** on your hand? secondly, with the vac unplugged, Can you turn the brush reasonably freely ? Is the drive belt on?

Belt keeps snapping


Check your brush. It is likely that the brush is broken and will not spin. Hold the brush by the end caps and spin the brush and if it will not spin freely that is your issue.

Brushes won't turn remain motionless as if cleaning hard floors even though button depressed could it be a problem with the brushes or button still under guarantee


There is a re-set button located on the brush head on the left side as viewed if you are standing directly behind the vacuum cleaner. It is black in color and is recessed slightly into the cover of the brush cover. It is round and about the size of the head of a country match and sticks up about 1/2 inch. Just press it to reset. Also, don't forget to press the grey on-off brush switch located beside the red on-off which is located near the top of the handle. Hope this information solves your problem. jawebb3@suddenlink.net
