Roller bar doesnt turn, its been cleaned


You may be able toi see the problem with a strong flashlight, or you may need to take the machine apart.
Problem should be a broken drive belt, going from the motor to the roller bar.
God bless your efforts.

The brush bar isn't going round ?


your problem seems to be the belt has snapped. Underneath the the hover there is a rubber belt that connects around the brush bar and around the motor, this belt will be broken. They can purchased from any hoover shop for a couple of pounds.

HOW TO CHANGE A BELT


Hi there...You will need a Phillips screwdriver to get the bottom cover off.Remove the screws and then remove the bottom cover.Clean out any excess dirt in the general area of the roller bar and motor assembly area.Place one end of the belt over the steel shaft of the motor and then roll the other end of the belt on to the end of the roller bar.placing the belt on the top of the roller bar and roll the bar slowly and feed the belt onto the roller bar until it is completely in place.Replace the bottom cover and put all the screw back in.
Plug your vacuum in and turn it on with the roller bar off the floor, in other words let it run for 10 seconds until you put it on the carpet allowing the belt to position itself properly on the roller bar.

Beater bar not turning


The number one cause of the "beater bar" (or brush roller) not rotating is a broken belt.

The number two cause of brushes not rotating is that something is jammed & wound around the roller, preventing it from rotating.

For the belt: If you remove the screws holding the bottom plate, you should see one (or maybe two) short, wide rubber belt(s) that goes around the roller.

If this is broken, it's easy to replace. They do break because of age and wear. One of the leading causes of breakage is when the roller gets something - a curtain cord, for example - wrapped around it. If you don't immediately shut off the vacuum & remove the cord, the belt will continue to try to turn the roller (which can't turn), and this generates a lot of heat in just a few seconds.


You can find belts at places like Sears, Home Depot, or your local vacuum shop.

For just the roller: Turn the vacuum over on its side and inspect the roller. Will it turn? Can you see something wound around it that's jamming it? While you here, take a minute and clean the roller... including using scissors or a knife to snip & remove wound hairs & threads. A clean and healthy roller will help to keep your belt happy!

Roller bar does not spin when turned on my DC14


Either your belt is broken or the roller is not functioning dues to debris or hair or bad bearings. You'll have to take a look at the bottom of the vacuum and see if the belt is broken. If it isn't, you need to remove the roller bar and see if there is anything keeping it from spinning. If the bearings are frozen, you can spray them with a lubricant and try to free them up. If this fails, then you will need to get a new roller. Hope this helps. Good luck!

Is the roller suppose to continously go around when running? Doesn't seem to change mat in carpet when going over it. Doesn't seem to be much suction..


That means that you need to replace the belt. The belt is what turns the roller brush, and when it is stretched or worn it doesn't. You can get replacement belts here:

Does not move on carpet. The roller bar is


Remove the roller from the head and check the end bearings for binding (note how the belt is attached). Remove all of the wound up thread, hair, and string from the entire roller. Clean the bearings and lightly oil with 3in1 or similar. Check the belt for worn or burned areas (replace if so). Belt should be tight when reassembled. Clean the air passages of any potential clogs. Make sure all of the wheels turn freely--if any problems, remove the same debris from the bearings and lightly oil. Wipe away any excess oil. Hope this helps.

My roller do not spin


There is also a circuit protector which trips if something gets caught in the roller, so that might be the problem. There is a very small red button on the right side at the bottom of the vacuum (IT'S VERY TINY), and you just push that in and it will reset the circuit.

Roller bar is not moving, sounds like motor is running


Remove the bottom plate underneath to expose the motor and bar AND belt. It sounds as though you have a broken belt.
