Why won't my shark navigator cordless vacuum pick anything up?


Sometimes everything seems to be fine. The brushes turn, but if the brushes aren't cleaned of hair, rug tangles and so on, the brushes on the vaccum get filled and it won't puck up anything. ON THE OTHER HAND if the brushes are clean, did you check all your hoses from thr base of of vaccum where things get sucked up to the bin?

Brushes will not move


Try to turn the brushes by hand. If they won't turn remove the brush assembly to see if it is seized, if it is, take it apart and clean the brushes and the gears. If it is nor seized the turbine might be seized.

F7441-980 brushes won't turn


Paul:

Turn the vacuum over and remove the foot plate. Check the belt and manually try to turn the brushes. If the belt is OK, the brushes need to be removed and the roller bearings at the end of the brushes cleaned (hair, fibers, dust,) I remove the roller bearings and shoot them with alcohol while turning them until they turn free, then blow the alcohol out and lube them with one drop of light machine oil.

The brushes won't spin. I put new brushes on and it still doesn't spin.


Usually when the brushes won't turn it is due to a bad turbine. Insert a screwdriver into the square hole that the pin on the brush fits into, and see if it turns. If it is seized up, the turbine assembly will need to be replaced.

Look at the ends of your brushes were the brush piece attaches to the vacuum. Sometimes they are broken or just stuck. good luck

While using the vacuum, the brushes stopped turning.


check the drum. Hair will rap around the axxel and stop the brush from turning. Cut this hair with a razor and place a small drop of oil on the end of the axel.

Brushes not working


brushes not turning are usually caused by the turbine bearings have seized. The turbine cost is about $35 average. on the bottom you can check a pull out filter to clean. there are also 2 screws that are recessd check by hand for tightness that hold the turbine. checkthe brushes for cleaning and free of debris. check the square shaft on the brushes as well. take it to a trusted vac shop who works on hoovers if you are not mechanically inclined for this type of repair.

Brushes not spinning....


My status light came on, the vac beeped twice and stopped. I noticed my brushes weren't spinning. I took an eyeglass screwdriver and took off the center screw that holds on the brushes. I cleaned the shaft that the brushes spin on. replaced brushes and it works great! I just did this now and it is still running. my status light problem is fixed my roomba is 4 years old and I am on my 2nd battery. Seems to have fixed the problem. FYI it was wrapped with hair, dirt and it was greasy.

Motor not turning


Don't forget, the agitator bursh doesn't work when the vacuum is upright. Maybe that is your problem.
