While vacuuming the beater stopped.

I have power (no lights indicating a problem), and there is still suction. It's just that the roller is not turning.

I have a kenmore model 116.25512506. The roller is spinning but no suction from the head. The attachments have suction but not the head. How do I remove bottom cover to check for blockage?

Is the suction control plastic ring shut?. If it's wide open you get almost no suction. See picture.

The suction comes on but the motor doesnt turn the beater bar nor does the red or green light come on

check to make sure power is coming from wall with a voltage meter, if not wiring issue or blown motor or wiring around beater motor

Miele SEB191 reverse suction

If you have had your belt changed lately, try reversing the way that the belt goes on the roller, or "beater brush". When you remove the belt, take note of which side of the belt is over top of the roller/beater brush, and which side is under the roller and, reverse it when you reinstall the belt.

Eureka 431BX suction stopped working. Roller still goes. Please help! Everything else is working great.

Even though the brush is spinning, you probably need to replace the belt2_bing.gif because it is stretched. It is probably slipping on the beater bar..

No suction when using the hose.

The beater bar is supposed to stop when the vac is upright. Sounds like you have a clog. There are several access points to check, fairly easy to clear obstructions.

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.

Vacuum won't pick up any dirt - there's no roller marks when vacuuming carpet. Roller does turn and filters are clean.


When you turn the roller, you should feel some resistance from the belt. Remove the base blate that surrounds the beater bar. Check the belt. Take care in removing the beater bar, so you can get it back in the same way it comes out. Clean the beater bar while you have the bottom open. If you remove the beater bar to replace the belt, take the time to inspect the cavity behind the beater bar where the vacuum picks up. That is where vacuums usually stop up. Reassemble the vacuum. If necessary, slip the belt over the motor shaft and then slide the roller undre the belt. Install the beater bar back in the sockets and replace the base plate.
Best regards,

No suction using extension hose for Bissell Bagless Upright vacuum. i checked for clogs and found nothing. shannon

Check the sole plate where the beater bar is. You may have to remove the roller brush flap to get into the roller brush and then check the main dust channel beside it. Usually if there's no suction on the hose it means that:
1) The hose is blocked 2) The filters are needing cleaned / washed and dried for 24 hours or see my tips! 3) There is dust clogging after the beater bar/roller brush.

replace the drive belt.
turn the vacuum over. take the buttom plate off, you can access the roller (beater). there should be a belt attached to the roller and the motor shaft.
