    The beater brush will not turn. I got a new belt but it is also to long. I think the problem is in the carpet to hard floor adjustment but I can't get it apart to work on it. Help would be appreciated.

Ez...there may be a second belt or the bearings in the beater are gummed up. Open up the area where the beater is. There should be a belt in there...if it is broken, you'll have to replace. Before you do...turn the beater by hand...if it turns hard, the bearings are jammed up with old grease or debris. You'll have to deal with that.

The turbo tool for pet hair on my Hoover power vac doesn't rotate. I removed the brush and cleaned but still doesn't work. Suction is fine without the tool attached.


Have you checked the drive belt on the pet head? Mine comes apart and a thin belt is driven by the propellers which in turn drive the brush head via the drive belt. To check turn propeller and see if brush head rotates if not belt missing broken / jammed

Vacuum brushes won't turn. It still has suction.


That means that you need to replace the belt that turns the roller brush. They naturally stretch and wear and you should replace this belt yearly. Here is the belt you need and the manual which has instructions on how to change it:

Dyson all floor vaccum no suction when hand held wand is turned on... doubled checked for cracks in hose -- none took house off unit to check for blockage --- none.. suction works fine when using as normal...


You need to replace the belt that drives the brush on the underneath side of the vacuum. To do this, you need to flip the vacuum over and remove cover plate. There you will find the broken, or stretched out belt. Remove the brush and place the new belt on the chrome axle. Then put the brush on, rapping the new belt around the brush as you put the brush back in place.

No suction


You have a clog somewhere in the vacuum. Check the hose and the little trap door on the underneath side of sweeper.
Does the brush turn? If not, then the belt that drives the brush is broken. Replace the belt

Drive and brushes stopped


Look for a missing belt that may have burned off or broken. Was there a burning smell at some point before the roller quit turning? If so, the belt must be replaced. I would also look at the ends of the roller to see if there is any string, hair, etc. that might be binding the roller that needs to be removed.

Brush not turning and no suctions !


If the cogs on the belt and brush roll are ok, then probably the cogs on the pulley are worn off, or the pump isn't turning, is the flat belt ok? If all of this is ok, then replace the pump, part # 2107181If no suction, is the black oblong gasket on the top of the clear window. It seals the gap between the tank and the window, no suction if it is gone. Also should be a red plastic screen on the edge of the tank lid, it may be clogged.

"brush bar spins erratically"


Belt needs to be replaced, it has stretched to the point that under load, it won't turn the brush roll like it should, so I would advise replacing the belt. And while you are doing that, check the brush roll and make sure the ends turn freely, if not, then replace it also. Then check the dirt inlet while you have the brush roll out.

How to for Belt replacement and solution to suction loss


You say it lost its suction, then you also say this is plenty of suction power, seems you cant figure out the prob. Try cleaning the fan on the suction blower. The blades can get chocked with dust which will give you a reduced suction.
