Brushes will not turn around. Can this be a ez fix?


Without knowing the brand and model number, I can't assist too much. However, most all of them have a belt that turns the rotating brushes or "beater bar".

It looks like a large black rubber band, and does wear out at times causing this condition. It would be located under a removable panel on the bottom of the unit.

Also check to make sure there is no dirt or strings preventing the brushes from turning.

Brushes don't rotate during floor cleaning


Check that no strings or other debris is clogging the brush wheels. If it isnt that check that the belt isnt broken connecting the brush to the motor. If that is ok, most likely the motor is blown and not turning the belt.

The brush wont rotate on my windtunnel vac but it still has suction. Could this be a broken belt?


Yep - that's usually the culprit if the brush stops turning. However, pull off the skid plate (bottom panel) and make sure you haven't picked up any string or some other obstruction that's wrapped itself around the brush & stopped it from turning. Things like hair/string don't always end up in the bag/bin sometimes if they're long enough they just wrap themselves around the brush.

The beater brush wont spin because the brush roll is always in the off position. Moving the carpet/hard switch doesn't turn it on.


Hello :
Try this please :
Switch the carpet/bare floor dial back & forth 5 times, ending on carpet. Tilt the handle back as if to vacuum upright & lay the vacuum on its side so it is resting on the side opposite the carpet/bare floor dial. Turn the vacuum on.
Or Maybe the belt is broke. You will have to replace the belt before the roller can spin. You must have run over something in the carpeting like string or whatever to have it break. Happens all the time. Get several replacement belts to keep as spares while you're at it as nothing is worse then having to vacuum and no spare belts.
........................
Try this also please :
Things You'll Need: Phillips head #2 screwdriver Replacement belt for your vacuum model Spray lubricant, such as silicone spray or teflon lube.
1: Unplug the vacuum. Never work on an electrical appliance when it is plugged into an electrical outlet.
2: Turn the vacuum over and locate the plastic or metal plate that covers the rotating brush. Remove this plate.
Note: This plate is typically attached by a small number of Phillips head screws or by levers that turn and lock the plate in place. In either case, removing this plate is a simple task.
3:Identify the vacuum's rotating brush. This brush should have a black rubber belt wrapped around it, and stretched around the metal shaft of an electrical motor mounted somewhere toward the back of the vacuum.
4:Verify that the brush will rotate freely. Examine both ends of the brush to ensure that no threads, string, yarn, etc. have become wrapped around the ends and thus inhibited a free rotation.If there is foreign debris, remove the brush by sliding it up, away from the bottom of the vacuum. Remove the debris
5:Lubricate both ends of the rotating brush with the spray lubricant. Replace the brush into the grooves which hold it in place
Replace the existing belt on the brush assembly, or replace a broken belt with a new vacuum belt.
6:Verify that the brushes now turn freely when back in place and that the motor shaft turns as the brush rotor turns.
PLEASE DON'T FORGET TO RATE !

Bissell proheat turbo, the brush will not rotate.


Have you check for obstructions on the brush, especially towards both ends of the brush? Check for things like string, tinsel, etc. that can stop the brush from rotating. Check to see if you can turn the brush using your hand but don't force it if it is jammed. If its free of debris and turns with your hand then you have a more severe problem. I don't believe this unit has a belt but hopefully my prior tips will help. Good luck!

the loud ratching is a warning to tell you that there is something stopping the roller bar from rotating this is a very common thing lay the machine on the floor front side down take off the bottom plate and just check the belt is in the centre of the belt guide on the brush bar normally if you turn the roller slowly without the bottom plate fitted it will straighten out on its own
