How can I remove the roller brush to clean it?


While not removing rollers, my method of cleaning them involves regular attention to prevent build up. Sometimes long hair or threads get wound so thickly & tightly the roller gets stuck & won't turn. If I can't unwind enough by pulling a few threads at a time, I'll cut a bit & pull it away a bit at a time until the mess pulls free. This is especially tedious if it gets caught at the edges in the rotation mechanism. That can be one piece of thread at a time, tugging gently & cutting away the jam until you can free it. As for the brushes themselves, sometimes a wide toothed comb will clear clumps of pet fur & rug lint from each strip of brush on the rollers, making it easier to see & remove long, wound tightly tangles.

How do I fix my vacuum the brush will not spin


Lubricate each end of the roller brush with motor oil. Bearings inside the roller brush need lubrication for the brush to turn easily. Remove any pieces of thread that have wrapped around the roller brush. If it does not spin after doing the above steps, then either the belt is slipping or the bearings are severely damaged in the roller brush. Then you need either a smaller belt or a new roller brush.

I need instructions on how to change the belt on my Hoover Model U4264-930 vaccum.


Tool Needed, flat head screwdriver (larger one works a little better). Serious Safety Precaution: Make sure unit is unplugged. Preliminary: Check: that nothing is caught like threads etc, preventing roller brush from turning. I've had this model vacuum 10 years and have pulled threads out countless times. However it still has the original belt on it. To change belt: 1.) There is a plastic plate underneath roller, towards front.. Pry the 3 tabs at front, the plate hinges downward slightly (to clear the front tabs). Next, there are 2 little clips at bottom of plate. Insert screw driver at each of these clips to fully release the plate the rest of the way. (Or it may even come off without having to pry back on these. The plastic clips need pushed towards front, to clear the ridge that catches towards the back). Pry one, then the other, clip forward, while gently pulling the plate the rest of the way out. (Gentle prying will assure it will snap back together OK, so you still get a good seal.) You now should see the whole roller brush. 2.) Remove the shell/motor cover: To do this, a.) pull off the rug height adjuster lever, and take not where you put it so you won't loose it. b.) push foot release down and keep vacuum bag in the vacuuming/hinged/operating position (not the upright/locked position), and position cleaner on it's side, or upside down. c. Pry around the bottom edge, starting at right corner, then go around, prying in about 4 different places. Shell/motor cover will now easily pull off (upward and out towards front), exposing motor shaft and light bulb. 3.) remove belt from motor shaft. 4. slide roller and old belt out the bottom. 5.) remove old and place new belt on roller 6.) slide roller back into place. 7.) wrap other end of belt on motor shaft. 8.) shell cover, rug height adjuster knob, and bottom plate snap back into place. check that roller turns without much effort. 9.) It now should be ready to plug in and vacuum.

Beater bar not turning


The number one cause of the "beater bar" (or brush roller) not rotating is a broken belt.

The number two cause of brushes not rotating is that something is jammed & wound around the roller, preventing it from rotating.

For the belt: If you remove the screws holding the bottom plate, you should see one (or maybe two) short, wide rubber belt(s) that goes around the roller.

If this is broken, it's easy to replace. They do break because of age and wear. One of the leading causes of breakage is when the roller gets something - a curtain cord, for example - wrapped around it. If you don't immediately shut off the vacuum & remove the cord, the belt will continue to try to turn the roller (which can't turn), and this generates a lot of heat in just a few seconds.


You can find belts at places like Sears, Home Depot, or your local vacuum shop.

For just the roller: Turn the vacuum over on its side and inspect the roller. Will it turn? Can you see something wound around it that's jamming it? While you here, take a minute and clean the roller... including using scissors or a knife to snip & remove wound hairs & threads. A clean and healthy roller will help to keep your belt happy!

Our brush doesn't rotate anymore on our U5402-900 vacuum cleaner. What are common causes of this?


The number one cause of brushes not rotating is a broken belt. If you remove the four screws holding the bottom plate, you'll see a short, wide rubber belt that goes around the roller.

If this is broken, it's easy to replace. They do break because of age and wear. One of the leading causes of breakage is when the roller gets something - a curtain cord, for example - wrapped around it. If you don't immediately shut off the vacuum & remove the cord, the belt will continue to try to turn the roller (which can't turn), and this generates a lot of heat in just a few seconds.

The number two cause of brushes not rotating is, as suggested above, something jammed & wound around the roller. It's always a good idea to turn the vacuum over periodically and clean the roller... including using scissors or a knife to snip & remove wound hairs & threads. A clean and healthy roller will help to keep your belt happy!

The brush roller is not rotating on my Kenmore Whispertone. It will pick up on floor surfaces. Help!


Be sure that there are no fibers wound around the roller or lodged in the wheel well of the brush roller. That is usually the cause of a brush roller not rotating. You might need to use scissors to clip the fibers and then pull them from the roller. The fibers might range from human and pet hair to carpet fibers, threads, string, yarn, embroidery floss. They wind around the roller and eventually "tighten up" so that the rotator will not move. I have found that, depending on my current craft project, I may have quilting thread, knitting yarn, embroidery floss, or other such goodies wrapped around the roller. When our daughters were at home we would have long, beautiful blonde hair tangled in the roller. I hope this helps.

THE BRUSH ON MY HEAD FOR THE SEBO K1 HAS STOPPED SPINNING WHY???


Check the brush roller at each side to see if threads are wound around it. Also, check the brush to see if there are threads wound around it. This is what generally stops the brushes from spinning. It will take sometime to unwind the threads/lint and you may need scissors and tweezers to fully remove all of them but it will be worth it!

My Dyson DC17 Animal brush roller makes noise when it is spinning but not when using the wand. The belt around the roller seems fine and it is not plugged. What else can I check for?


Hi its Darran at Dyson.

You may find it useful to remove the soleplate from the base of the machine and make sure that the brush bar is fitted correctly.

Once this is done, make sure there are no hairs or threads wrapped around the brush barm, particularly
at the ends.

With the soleplate removed you can also ensure that the brush bar and housing are free of blockages.

Once checked, re-fit the soleplate and test the machine.

I hope that this information is useful to you. If you need any further help or advice, contact one of our Ask Dyson experts on 1866MYDYSON.

Kind regards
Darran

How to replace the belt.


Instructions are in the manual, free online here:

http://simplicityvac.com/about-my-simplicity/manuals/7000.pdf

Short version: slide the two retaining clips to the center and remove the bottom plate. There's a C-shaped retaining clip at the right end of the roller tray. Remove the clip and lift the roller out. Thread the old belt from around the motor drive shaft, thread the new one in, put it around the roller and replace the roller - belt will stretch enough to let you do this. Put the C-clip back in, replace the bottom plate and go.
