    My Dyson vaccum leaves a row of multiple lines on my plush carpet. I've never had s vaccum leave more than the two wheel lines. I called customer service and they had no solution for me!


    It's the beater bar brush. Turn it over and use a screwdriver or knife, and run it the full width of the beater bar to remove the hair and string and other debris that get wound up on the beater bar-NOTE you do NOT have to remove the beater bar or take apart anything. As long as the beater bar spins, and there are no missing sections on the beater bar- this will work. Beater bar could also be worn down- be sure that the bristles extend past the bottom of the vacuum- ALWAYS DO THIS WITH THE POWER OFF

    I was told by a previous repair man that there is a fuse in the beater bar that needed to be replaced.


    Up to my experience in my Panasonic vacuum cleaner, if the beater bar is not working this could be because the 'Carpet/Floor' selector switch is in the 'OFF' or 'FLOOR' position. In both of these positions the beater bar will not rotate. Move the selector switch to the 'CARPET' position. When in this position the beater bar will rotate once the foot pedal is pressed.

    If the selector switch is in the 'CARPET' position and the beater bar is still not rotating it could be that there is something entangled in the beater bar, or the belt is worn or broken.

    To check this first unplug the vacuum cleaner

    Inspect the beater bar and belts to ensure that there is nothing entangled in the beater bar and that the belts are intact and are not excessively worn. If the belts are excessively worn they may slip resulting in the beater bar not rotating.

    The vacuum cleaners often have an overload protection system inside the nozzle, which stops the nozzle motor when the beater bar jams to prevent belt breakage. After clearing any lint build up or jamming you may need to reset the overload protection, by pressing the reset button on the top of the floor nozzle.

    The brush on my Electrolux Versatility will not spin. You can spin it by hand, but the motor will not spin it.


    Hello, W/D here.
    Since the brush will not spin, but the motor works, either the belt has come off of the motor shaft, the belt is worn past it's useful life, or the beater bar has seized.
    1. Turn off the power (unplug).
    2. Remove the bottom plate. With the plate off, use your finger to test the tension of the belt. It should be tight, and roll when you roll the beater bar by hand.
    3. Remove the beater bar and belt. Inspect the beater bar, particularly by the bearings. Remove any twine, hair, etc.
    4. Inspect the belt for abnormal wear. If there is any significant wear in the belt, replace it.
    5. Reassembly is in the reverse order. Place the belt on the beater bar. While holding the beater bar close to it's position, place the belt on the motor shaft. Rotate the beater bar bearings to their proper position and install the beater bar. Replace the cover plate.

    Best regards, --W/D--

    How do yu change the belt


    Hello. W/D here.
    On the baseplate that surrounds the beater bar, you'll see three large plastic screw heads. Turn these and youll feel the plate loosen. Raise the plate from back to front; it hinges toward the front. This gives you access to the beater bar. Remove the beater bar, making mental note as to how it comes out. You want to pay attention to the ends so you can get it back in easily. Remove whatever remains of the old belt. While you have it opened this far, inspect the suction cavity behind the beater bar; this is where they are most likely to stop up over time. Also take a moment to inspect the beater bar and remove the things that tend to wind up on the bar and at the ends. Slip your new belt over the motor shaft, and then slip the beater back under the belt. It will be tighter going back with the new belt. While the belt is on the motor shaft and the beater bar, slide the beater bar back into the sockets of the vacuum, and replace the base plate.
    That's all there is to it!

    Best regards, --W/D--

    It has no suction...last couple of times while using the vacuum it would cut itself off. If I tried to use it the next day it would do the same thing


    Hi,
    You vacuum is probably plugged up. Flip it over, beater bar up, and remove the plate that surrounds the beater bar. The beater bar needs to come out next. If the belt is good, it will be a little hard to remove. The beater bar sits in sockets that then go ilto the vacuum frame, so note how they come out as you ease the beater bar out and slip the belt off of the bar. There's a cavity behind the beater bar where the vacuum picks up debris. Stuff hangs up there, and you'll need to remove whatever is plugging you up. While you have everything open, give it a general cleaning. Remove anything wound around the beater bar, etc., and reassemble the vacuum in the reverse order.

    Low suction


    Hi, You can take care of both things at once. Here's how:
    Unplug and flip your vacuum over, beater bar side up. Remove the cover base plate that surrounds your beater bar. It's held on with either clips or screws, and usually "hinges" toward the front of the vacuum to release when the clips/screws are undone. Remove the base plate. The beater bar sits in sockets where it fits into the vacuum. Pay particular attention to how it comes out as you remove the beater bar, so it will be much easier to put it back together. If your belt is good, it will want to come off with the beater bar, but will remain attached to the motor. If necessary, slip the belt off of the beater bar. Behind the beater bar, you'll see a cavity. This is where the vacuum pulls the dirt from the beater bar. Look up into the cavity; stuff almost always hangs up in there. Remove any debris that you can find. While you have your beater bar out, look at the ends, where it fits into the sockets. Hair and other material catches on the beater bar and winds around it. If it is in and around the sockets, it causes the vacuum to have to work harder to clean. Remove any debris that you find on either end. Get your new belt and place it on the motor shaft. Slip the beater bar into the belt, and install the beater bar and sockets back into the vacuum frame. It takes patience so don't worry if it takes a few tries to get it right. Once in, test your work by revolving the beater bar a bit with your hand. You should be able to feel the tension of the belt as it turns the bar and the motor shaft. Take one more look at the sockets, just to be sure that they are in the proper place, and that the beater bar is level in the frame. Reinstall the base plate. This should have you finished at this end.

    Belt


    Hi. This isn't a hard repair at all.... Unplug your vacuum. Turn the vacuum beater bar side up. Locate the catches or screws that hold the plate on that covers the beater bar. Remove the plate. The beater bar sits in sockets where it attaches to the vacuum, so remove carefully, making note how it comes out. This will make reassembly much easier. Place your new belt on the motor shaft, then onto the beater bar while you replace the beater bar back into the sockets. Test your work by revolving the beater bar a bit by hand. Reinstall the cover plate. That's it!

    Regards! --W/D--

    Vacuum turns on and suction in hose works, beater bar won't turn


    If you hear the motor in the head running and the beater bar isn't rotating, you probably need a drive belt. With the power off, make sure you can rotate the beater bar freely by hand, if it isn't bound up.. then locate and remove the baseplate screws to gain access to the beater bar itself, you'll see a drive belt pulley system and chances are, a broken belt. Replace it with a new one by pulling the beater bar assembly out of the housing and plcing the belt onto the motor shaft pulley as well as the beater bar pulley.. nest the beater bar back into the holder and reinstall the cover. Hope that helps !
