Drive belt has most likely broke and jammed inside the power head. Remove the bottom plate on the power head and replace the drive belt.

My brush stopped spinning, but instead makes a loud plastic grinding noise.


Both ends of the brush roll should spin freely. You need to replace the brush roll.

The brushes on my Hoover Steamvac Widepath LS SpinScrub model # F6040 900 are not spinning. What should I do to get the brushes spinning again?


On those models the brushes are turned by suction.
1. Check the lower tank to be sure its completely closed and sealed.
2. Check the lower tank to be sure the tools filler plate is in place (if you used the tools recently)
3. If both 1&2 ok, manually turn the brushes, if they do not turn freely you may have a stuck turbine or bad brush block.
4. Take the brush block out by releasing the tabs on each corner being careful not to break them.
5. Place a large flat blade screwdriver in the square drive hole that drives the brushes under the machine. Gently turn. It should turn slowly with some resistance. If it turns slowly it is ok. If it turns with no resistance it may be bad as well. If it will not you may be able to break it loose with some even pressure being careful not to strip the hole. If it will not turn or makes a lot of noise replace the Turbine assembly.
6. If the brush block has a broken drive shaft or will not turn replace the brush block.

Here is what that brush block should look like.

Green light does not come on ans brush does not move. belt is good and brush does spin manually.


I assume this is a Kirby. The belt is not on the motor shaft if you can turn the brush manually. Remove the head, turn the belt lifter assembly clockwise to stretch the belt into a loop, place the head back onto the motor unit and latch it in place, then turn the belt lifter counterclockwise to drop the belt onto the motor shaft.

The brush on my vaccum stopped rotating, we replaced the belt thinking that could be the problem. It seems that the belt is working fine and the brush will not rotate even manually- what can I do to get it...


Remove the brush from the machine and clean as best you can. At each end of the brush there is a plastic clip that holds it into the vacuum. Add some WD40 between the clip and the brush and turn the clip around the brush until it moves freely. Do this for both ends. Reassemble making sure the belt is properly installed.

The brushes will not turn even though I have the switch on for the brushes


When you move the swwitch to on, you are moving a baffle to allow air flow into the turbine to rotate the brushes. try to move them by hand with the machine off. if you cannot the turbine nees service. if you can check the tank lid is on, foam filter for dirt.

I have a dyson upright and he beater brush is not turning


There are four possible reasons for the problem. We will take them from the easiest to fix to the hardest.

1. The manual clutch is not engaged. On the bottom right side of the vaccum is the manual clutch knob. Be sure it is rotated all the way forward. The clutch should now engage when the handle is lowered from the upright position to the vacuumig position.

2. The brush bar is entangled with debris keeping it from turning. Turn the vacuum over, remove the brush bar cover by using a coin to turn the screw like pinions a quarter turn counter-clockwise. Remove any hair, carpet fibers or other items wrapped around the brush bar. Disengage the manual clutch by turning it toward the back of the vacuum. Try turning the brush bar by hand to see that it moves freely.

3. The brush bar is broken. While you have the brush bar cover removed, inspect the brush bar for any cracks or other signs of damage. The frequency of a damaged or defective brush bar is higher than most people may think. If damaged, the brush bar will need to be replaced.

4. The clutch assebly is not functioning properly. In that case, it would be best to have a service tech handle the matter. If you want to inspect the clutch or even consider replacing it yourself, this link may be of interest: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7_CtaFcc5HU

Hope I've been of some help.

Irobot Roomba will not turn off


I think both of you who responded are tools.

The issue is on the main board. What JBugs is saying is the brushes continue to run even if the unit is manually turned off.

There is no fix other than to replace the main board. There is a circuit which drives the brushes. If the circuit electronically gets stuck in a closed position, then the brushes will run until out of power.

There is a way to install a switch in the brush circuits but then you must manually turn the brushes on each time you want to clean.

Best bet is to call iRobot, complain and buy one of the out of warranty replacements for $99. This replacement will allow you to schedule the unit to wake up and will perform exactly like the Scheduler.
