Question about Shark Vacuums
I want to vacuum the tile floors but the motorized brush (beater bar) will not quit spinning when in the off position. The light does not go out.

Does the power head motor stop, or does the brush roll stop. If it is the brush roll stopping, replace the belt and/or the brush roll. If it is the motor, you may need to clean out around the motor, it may not be getting enough air to cool causing it to overheat and stopping. That the brush roll plate off, take out the screw, and the top will come off, then you can check to see if cleaning is the answer, if not, the motor may be bad.

The All Floors model has a protective belt clutch system and the rattling sound means the clutch has slipped. This would have to be repaired officially by a Dyson repairer.

there is a belt that drives the beater brush. flip the unit over, you can remove the bottom cover by removing a couple of screws. to one side of the brush you will see a channel where the belt should be. go to you local walmart, sears or hardware store and in the vaccume section they will have belts, on each bag of belts will be a list of vaccumes that belt fits simply find yours. with the new belt simply lift the beater brush out at the belt channel side and install the belt around motor shaft and brush. then place brush back in place , be suer brush guides are in properly. this should do ya.

Testimonial: "Thank you so much!! I did try to take the bottom off my vacuum earlier and could only find one screw so I didn't want to break it. Will try again! <3 "

I was having the same problem with my Healthy Home vac and happened to read a solution to another question on this site posted by someone with the user name "9008". I followed his suggestion and my vac works great again. There is a screw on the back of the handle near the cord holders that can loosen up over time. When this screw is loose, the brush switch (and therefore the brushes) do not work properly. I'm not sure why this little screw causes such a big problem, but it does. To find this screw, look on the back of the handle, it's on the edge, kind of behind the hose. You should see a triangle with a Phillips screw-head symbol embossed in the plastic. Tighten this screw gently (careful not to over-tighten and strip it!). Also, not a bad idea to tighten the other screws...I found many of mine to be quite loose. Hope this helps!!

Apparent common failure is that either the thin yellow and or blue motor drive wires that run from the LH side of the vacuum where the "control board" is located down into the hinge / ball area become stretched and then fray and eventually break. Happened to my Dyson twice. First repaired under warranty, second took about 20 minutes. You need a Torx screwdriver to remove the LH panel ( 4 screws) and also an access panel (2 screws) at the side of the ball which permits access to the blue / yellow wire connectors. I replaced with a new wire and connectors having fed the wires through the access hole making sure sure enough wire was available for the movement of the handle. Also ensure that when the covers are replaced they do not trap any wires underneath.
