SOURCE: Battery or ?

If this model is under 1 year warranty, I would suggest that you take it to a warranty repair shop or that you ask for a replacement. with a Return Material Authorization (RMA) at no further cost to you for shipping.

If this model takes a clutch then it is stripped and needs to be replaced.

SOURCE: the bagless rotor does not rotate/sweeper does not rotate

There is no rotor inside the clear container that turns on a DC07. The stuff spins due to the shape of the airflow. Perhaps your cyclones are completely clogged. you can clean them yourself. see this video http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2OO3ugkyzxk

SOURCE: hoover steam vac, brushes won't

There are three things to check when experiencing 'no spin' on the cleaning brushes. 1) Check the small pull out filter screen under the machine. It must stay clean for air to pass to the turbine which powers the brushes. 2) Check that the long shaft on the brush assembly is not broken off. This shaft inserts into the turbine motor and powers the brushes. If you're handy you can replace just the long shaft brush rather than replacing the whole brush assembly. Look for the brush on Ebay 3) If you're handy you can dissemble the machine and inspect the turbine motor which powers the brushes. In all cases the bearings seize in the turbine. You can often free them up and re-lube them to get more service from them or simply replace the turbine assembly. Don't throw your Steam Vac out because the brushes no longer turn...you can fix it!

Swivel sweeper brushes slow with full charge even after cleaning brushes


When you say you cleaned out brush's are you talking about the build up between the bristles? I've found that I have to take the roller completely off and use fine needle nose tweezers to actually get all the stray hairs and caked on dirt as it hides close to the inside of the brush rollers. It's a bit more work to do this but I think you might benefit from this extra step!
Good Luck!!!

What would cause this to shut off after a few minutes of use with full battery charge


1) test the power cord for open, broken, loose or defective with VOM
2) test the outlet wall, for ground improperly, and repair.
3) Most of the time is THERMAL fuse, replace or fix it.
God bless you

Vacuum wont spin when on carpet but will spin if tilted off the carpet


Remove the bottom plate of the sweeper. Remove the sweeper brush roller and clean the end bearings of debris. Oil the bearings lightly with 3-1 oil or similar machine oil. Clean the motor shaft with alcohol as well as the brush drive area, and the inside of the drive belt. Test on a carpet for improvement--if still stopping, replace the rubber drive belt. Hope this helps!

The brush on my bissell prolite multicyclonic vacuum won't turn. It seems like it is jammed, but I checked for anything that might be stuck in it and don't see anything. Is there a reset button?


I had the same problem with my old Bissell sweeper ( I bought a new rotating brush each time this happened then I bought a new sweeper the next time it happened -last Dec. 2009.) Unfortumately I bought a new Bissell and now it is happening again to the new sweeper. I do clean the brush often but what has happened is that the hair somehow gets inside the brush via the end caps???This sweeper does have end caps that can be removed for cleaning --although not that easily when they are locked up. I did this yesterday but before I could remove the end cap I had to use a pin, scissors, etc. anything that I could get into the groove to remove lint, etc. that caused it to lock up. Then when I got the end cap to move a little, I pried it off. I found hair, etc. inside where the metal rod is which I don't think should be happening --I used a seam ripper also to try to get some out. I have owned many different brands of sweepers and have never seen this problem before. Then, I put the end cap back on, however, it was not smooth on the inside--almost like it had melted when it locked up. So, the sweeper brush now moves but it is noisy. I guess I will buy another brush -- but this seems ridiculous for a new sweeper--the customer service rep told me that the brush does wear out.... but not on a sweeper that is less than a year old. There is no wear and tear on the brushes. Oh, and the CSR told me that they haven't had people call about this problem --I am guessing they are just buying new brushes or new sweepers. The sweeper def. has great suction but I think other brands do also..

What is causing a slight burning rubber smell when running the vacuum?


If this is a sweeper model with a rotating brush, remove the brush assembly. Clean and oil (3-1oil or similar) the bearings on the ends of the brush. They are usually full of string, hair, and thread which binds the brush. Check the belt for burn spots or other damage. Hope this helps!

Brushes don't turn, light works when switched on, battery fully charged


Hello. Generally, when the brushes don't turn you will find that the belt is broken. In some cases, also the brushes will stop if they are clogged up with animal hair, etc. Regards, Joe
