Brush will not rotate and the belt is on,is there a motor just for the the brush?

No there is not, if the main motor is turning then the problem is that the brush is jammed with debris. You need to remove the brush and clean out the debris or replace the brush assembly.
I hope I have been of help but please do not hesitate to ask if you have any further questions.
I appreciate your vote if you appreciate my reply.

My vacum roller brush dosenot work

The most common failure there is the drive belt from the motor to the brushes has failed. Consult your local vacuum store for a replacement. Normally they are fairly easy to change. Check and see if the brush is free wheeling or needs a push to get it to turn. If the belt is broken or worn out the brushes will turn freely.

Eureka canister vacuum cleaner Model 6865

The 6865 has a high rpm AMTEK Lamb motor, Brushes will seldom solve the problem at this stage.
Once the sparking and burning starts the conectiion between the brush and commutator is arcing and burning. If the sparks are blue, save your time.
A good service tech will run in brushes with a seating stone and a low voltage setup to allow new brushes to seat, but this is generally best accomplished on heavy duty , lower rpm motors.

The suction on my eureka optima stopped working but the roller still works, what might i do to fix it?

Hi there. Most suction problems are due to a blockage. Start with the base and look carefully for debris that is stopping air flow. You may have to remove the base plate to get to the problem. I am including a link to the manual for your machine. look on page four so see how to remove the base and check for blocked airways.

Eureka Wide Track Superlite vacuum roller brush motor

Don't know if you can find something that will work, Eureka doesn't make these motors available thru them. Try some local shops or a place that sells small motors.

Eureka optima 431A

Belt number is 74376, there should be screws on the bottom, take those out and the top comes off, or the top and bottom come apart. You will want to clean evrything so the brush roll will roll easily.
