SOURCE: bad bearing on kenmore whisperbelt beater brush.

Sorry,
I thought this was a free forum. I do not intend to hire a bunch of experts to find out if a bearing can be found for my vacuum cleaner when the entire brush assembly in $39.99.
This is a very tricky way to get unsuspecting people sucked into paying for something they thought was free.
Bad business, sorry.

SOURCE: I ran over a shoe lace and now it is making a loud rattling noise

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.

SOURCE: The beater bar seems to have worn and is loose.

Not sure how I can help, as it seems you know what the problem is! Fit a new brush bar! On some Dyson models (not sure if the DC17 is one of them) you have to fit a new sole plate at the same time - they are supplied together as a kit. Good luck.

SOURCE: How do you open the power head to remove the

Greetings,

Thank you so much for that clarification, I know the exact model of Kenmore that you have now. This model is actually made by Panasonic for Sears who puts the Kenmore name on it. I wasn't able to located the Sears owners manual, but I did find a Panasonic model that uses the same power nozzle as yours does. I will also explain how to access the roller brush below, and if you'd like to see diagrams of how to do it, you may visit the link below to the Panasonic owners manual. Start at page 46, then go back to page 40.
http://service.us.panasonic.com/OPERMANPDF/MCCG973-MUL.pdf

In order to access the roller brush on this model, here's what you need to do. Underneath of the headlight cover, there are two screws that need to removed first. In order to get to these screws, simply push on both sides of the headlight cover, and lift it straight up while pushing both sides. After the headlight cover has been removed, you'll be able to visibly see the two screws that need to be unscrewed (phillips head screw driver). Remove these two screws next.

After the screws have been removed, turn the power head upside. If you look at both the left and the right sides, you'll see a little indentation on each side. All you need to do is put a flat head screwdriver in these indentations, and pry up on both sides. This will remove the top housing. Once you have top housing removed, you'll see there's one more cover that goes over the roller brush. There are two tabs on both sides behind the roller brush. If you squeeze these two tabs, you can now remove the white colored housing that covers the brush, and have full access to the brush.

I hope that this helps you remove the twine from your beater bar. If you found this repair helpful, please be sure to rate it by clicking the thumbs up icons in the top right hand corner. If you have any other questions about how to repair this, please feel free to request a clarification, or add a comment to the repair, and I'll be more then happy to help you.

Thanks very much,

Chris Jones

Are you sure you have the correct belt? The proper belt is # 59156500. It is 5/16" wide and about 2 1/2" in diameter. This is not a common belt.

How can I replace belt?


Turn the unit upside down remove screws that hold the cover on over the beater brush. Remove the beater brush and replace the belt. One end will go on the one side or middle of the brush and the other to the motor pin. Replace cover and done.

Hy, I have a dyson 14 that sometimes make a terrible racket when I am vacuuming rugs. This happens even after I've cleared the roller brush of strings, hair, etc.


Check the beater bar to see if it turns freely. It should spin real easy. If it takes just a little effort, your problem would be the beater bar is binding on one or both of the end caps. When the bar gets bound up, there is a clutch with three balls in it which slip in and out of their position which cause the loud noise you describe - like something is caught up in it. To solve, you need to remove the bottom plate and pull up one end of the beater bar - the end opposite the belt is easiest. Pull off the end cap (it just slides on. You may have to rotate some). If the shaft comes out, that's okay. That just means the shaft came out of the opposite end cap. Clean out both ends and reassemble. Before putting on the bottom plate, check to see if the beater bar turns freely. If it still makes the sound, I would suspect the clutch has a bad or broken internal spring. This would require repair or replacement of the clutch.

I have lost suction in my versitility electrolux, it has a higher pitched whinning sound, I have replaced the filters and checked all of the hosing, it is all clear


You may want to check and be sure the beater brush is operating properly and that the drive belt has not broken. The drive belt can brake when the beater brush is frozen up.
Suggest you remove the beater brush and clean as best you can. There will be two rubber pieces on either end of the beater brush. Be sure these are loose enough so you can turn them by hand. Spray a bit of WD40 between these pieces and the beater brush and turn by hand to work the WD40 in. If you have to replace the drive belt, this would now be a good time to do it.

I have a bissell easy vac and the metal part that spins the rubberband and brush keeps overheating and burning all the belts I replace. What should I do?


Sounds like the beater brush is frozen and won't turn. Remove the beater brush and clean off all debris, especially at both ends. You will find a square(?) piece at each end of the beater brush that holds it in place. This need to turn freely. Put a little WD40 on these where the center rod of the beater brush enters the small holders and turn by hand until they turn freely. Once this is done, assemble with new belt, making sure the belt is put on properly. If the belt is missing and you need to replace, I would still do the cleaning on the beater brush. It should move freely when you turn it by hand.

Vacuum turns on but the brush is not rotating


Most likely a problem with the drive belt or the beater brush. Either the drive belt is broken or the beater brush is frozen due to debris. If you can not turn the beater brush by hand, it should be removed and cleaned well. The ends of the beater brush that hold it into the vacuum should be lubricated with some WD40 and moved by hand until they are free. Once the turn freely, replace the beater brush. If the drive belt is broken or missing, it needs to be replaced.

Beater does not work.


Not knowing what type of vacuum you have does not make it easy. However, usually caused by a broken belt or the fact that the beater brush is bound up by debris either being on the beater or having accumulated at the ends of the beater where the brush is supposed to spin on the end plates. After checking the belt I would remove the beater brush, clean it very good and put some WD40 on the ends of the axle of the beater brush and make sure it spins freely on the holding plates.

Hoover makes terrible screaching sound when using upright.


It's most likely the bushings/bearings in the beater bar (roller). The beater bar cover is fairly easy to remove -- take it off and investigate. Could be that the roller only needs lubricating on the ends. Also, check the belt to see if it's intact or damaged.

Clean area thoroughly.

If this is not the problem, please, let me know.

Odd noise coming from central vacumn cleaner


The rattling noise, will likely increase when the head is flipped upside down. Generally means you have a stone caught in the belt or a blown or stripped tooth on the belt.
If you gently squeeze the outside edges of the light housing it will pop off to reveal two screws to remove the lid. Check for other screws at the neck of the power head. Once removed your belt and brush will be visible. Remove the brush roll with end caps and flip the belt inside out rolling it between your finger , look for cracks or a floppy or missing tooth. Replace if any sign of wear.
Inspect the dust caps on your brush. There is a washer under each, likely buried in lint. Do not lose as these are a spacers for each end of the brush. Clean shaft and lube with WD40. Spray caps with the same. vacuum loose grit and dust bunnies away from motor and reinstall, your red button must align with the lid when replacing

Correct position of beater bar on a Dyson DC14?


I had the same problem. I removed the brush from the machine. The brush should move freely when removed. If it doesn't move freely, pull the ends from the brush, both ends come off(one will have a rod fixed to it). I would suggest you clean the ends and the inside of where the ends sit on the brush. I applied a little grease on both end housings(inside end housing) if no grease available try washing up liquid. Put the brush ends back on the brush. I then spun the brush to check that it moved freely. It should move freely, if it does fit it back on the machine and it should be silent. If you cant get it to move freely I suggest a replacement brush. Tip: I used a blunt knife and placed it through the belt to avoid removal of the belt. Good luck. Cheers Jason
