Why won't the brushes spin on my Shark rocket vacuum spin


Either the belt is broken, the brushroll switch needs to be replaced or the brush motor is shot.

Shark rotator nv340 roller brush is not spinning


just found this from another fixya member....There are a number of reasons why your brush roll has stopped spinning on your Shark Rotator. Here are a few things to check for when trying to fix your Shark.

First things first lets focus on the brush roll. Unplug the vacuum and turn it on its side. Look for any noticeable clumps of debris or hair strands that may be caught in the brush roll. Remove these obstructions, probably best to do so with a scissor if it's hair or long pieces of carpet fibers. After removing the debris try manually rotating the brush roll to uncover other hidden clogs. Another thing to take note of is the condition of the bristles on the roll itself. Are they loose or worn down? These are signs that your brush roll is in need of replacing.

While checking out your brush roll you might as well take a look at your vacuums belt. This could be the other reason why your brush roll has stopped spinning. Your belt should be replaced about every three months. After regular usage, the belt will stretch out, lessening the tension on the brush roll. Lesser tension diminishes the brush rolls turn rate and speed. If the belt feels loose then it certainly is effecting your vacuums suction as well as your brush roll not moving at all.

What causes my Shark Vacuum to work only intermittently?


If the brush roller operation is intermittent, there may be hair jammed inside the end caps. The brush roller can be removed and the end caps also for inspection. Intermittent operation also can be caused by a stretched drive belt.
The periodic failure to pick up may be caused by something such as a ball of hair migrating through your vacuum cleaner and stopping from time to time to test your patience

My shark rotator brush won't spin. How do I fix it?


Check out this Video
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qdznafE4uis

One of the most important parts of the Video - It's a great Video by the way - is the switch being shown at the 3:08 mark in the video. I recommend watching the entire video to see how to disassemble the Power Brush Assembly. Anyway, if that switch shown in the Video fails, it will prevent the beater bar (rotating brush) from working. It could be stuck on or off. Ours was stuck off and would not turn on. The switch did not spring back and click like shown in the video.

This happened on ours and a quick call to Shark Corp got a replacement Motorized Floor Brush Assembly on the way and a prepaid shipping label to send back the defective one.

They need your model number on the silver sticker and the date code on the power cord plug - code is on one of the blades that plugs into the wall. it is stamped into it. We are out the vacuum till the new part gets here, but I have to give them props for great customer service and an easy warranty claim process.e3779990-e534-4036-811a-dd038f1e3c30.jpg
