Dear Xana,I have had problems like yours before. More times then not the roller brush "belt" got damaged and needed to be replaced.
You should also check your roller brush and make sure it was not knocked out of alignment.

If neither of these solutions help,then it could be, your roller brush "Bearing Assembly"got damaged which would mean you need to either replace the "Bearing Assembly" if it is removable and if you can find that part.Or else you would need to replace the whole "Roller Brush".

You can normally tell if the "Bearing Assembly" is damaged by trying to turn the roller brush with your hands,if it takes a lot of force to make it turn,then theirs a good chance it was damaged!

These repairs are fairly easy to do, just read your Vacuum manual on replacing parts,also make sure you always have the vacuum unplugged while replacing parts or doing repairs.

I hope this info helps,EarlsOK

Spin brush


There is a rubber belt that's off track or you need to take it apart and clean out it. Over time everything gets stuck around it. A bad motor could cause it to not spin but you wouldn't hear anything noise when you plugged it up if that was the case.

A sock is stuck in the nozzle. won't come out . how do you take it appart?


Remove the power head from the wand. Turn it upside down on a table or counter. There are 5 screws to remove to take the head off. There are
3 on the long part just in front of the brush roller and 2 more on each corner of the short part. Once you have the hood off you will be able to remore your sock, then put back on the hood.

I have a hoover f5914-900 steam vac.. and I was wondering if there's a way to take apart the spin brushes to get them cleaned out well. I loaned it to family, and the brushes came back extremely soiled and...


The brush block may be removed from the base for rinsing.
Yes, you can CAREFULLY disassemble the brush block assembly by releasing each of three latches that hold each of the clear gear covers to the main block. A small screwdriver is used to GENTLY lift each tab, one at a time. Pay attention to what position the special gear is at that has the drive pin (1/4 inch square drive) for correct reassembly.

Here is the link to the User Manual that shows how to remove the brushes from the base.

When i use the power brush attachment, dust flies out of the hole that the hose attaches to... is there a way to prevent this or is it just how it works?


this is the nature of this vacuum, the roller will always spin, when the vac is turned on. You can either cover wit tape or maybe find a sock to put in it (remember to remove sock) when putting hose back

There is suction to the vacuum, however the brush will not turn. Any suggestions?


there is also a small reset button on the outside of the head next to the brush that you can push to get it to start spinning again. dont know officially why its happens, but i would think its there as a safety switch in case something gets stuck

Irobot roomba 570 brush not spinning


Unscrew and remove the side brush. There is probably a wad of hair and dirt underneath it that's keeping it from spinning. When it's clean, *snap* the brush back on, then screw it into place. If it still doesn't turn, you'll need a new module. Call support: 877-855-8593. Good luck.

Brush won't spin


Yes it could be the belt or the "Bearing Assembly". I had the same problem with a vacuum I got from a friend. 1st I replace the belt,but when I turned the vacuum on I could smell something burning and then the belt broke in half. I then realized the brush roller was stuck in place and would not turn even with force applied. I later found out that 1 of the 2 Bearing Assembly's was worn out,when a Bearing Assembly is worn out the brush roller can not spin. So now it looks like I need to buy a whole new brush roller,unless I can find a place that sells the Bearing Assembly for part number 61445-1,which is a roller brush for a GE Wal Mart vacuum.
