Shark SV736R motorized brush won't rotate

The 2 metal pins of the motorized brush are not in contact with the vacuum cleaner. or the Motorized brush is clogged up. You have mentioned that it is cleaned, but still give a thorough inspection. For the metal pins, firmly insert the motorized brush into the air-intake nozzle. This will connect the motorized nozzle to the unit power supply.

Where is the red lint filter that is described in your troubleshooting for lost suction??

It is on the bottom, close to the spinning brushes. It is the red plastic pushed down into the input of the vacum turbine tunnel that utilizes the vacum from the water collection tank to spin the brushes. Make sure that the stem of the master brush is not broken off, after pulling up and out to remove the brush holding container.

Brush bar is not turning when I turn on my dison vacum

Hi There,

The Dyson DC15 All floors is actually a 2 motor upright, meaning the suction motor is separate from the motor that rotates the brushes. The first thing you should check is the reset switch on the brushes. Behind the brushes there is a little red pole, push this down to reset the brushes, and see if this fixes the problem.

If not, then you may have a bad on/off switch for the roller brushes. Try pushing the switch next to the main on/off switch that controls the brushes up and down, up and down, can you hear the brushes attempt to come on at all? If you could hear them come on even somewhat, this means that your brush on/off switch is bad and needs to be replaced.

If nothing happens when you push this switch, it still may be bad and not getting any power at all to it.

Does the machine make any sound at all when you try to turn the brush switch on and off?

Please try pushing the reset switch, then testing the on/off switch first. If neither one of these solutions works, please just use the comment field on the repair and let me know, and I can then walk you through some more advanced diagnosing of your machine.

My vacum roller brush dosenot work

The most common failure there is the drive belt from the motor to the brushes has failed. Consult your local vacuum store for a replacement. Normally they are fairly easy to change. Check and see if the brush is free wheeling or needs a push to get it to turn. If the belt is broken or worn out the brushes will turn freely.

It might be a slipping rubber belt, is the brush roller moving when you look underneath? If it's a self propelled machine there might be another slipping belt. Friction from fast rubbing rubber can smell like it is burning.

Rotating Floor Brush Isin't spinning

It appears that the end of the brush is getting jammed with hairs, treads, and/or dust or the belt may be worn. Try taking the brush out and hold it by the ends and try to turn it. It should turn quite easily if it is working good. If not try taking the ends off and clean them out. Also, make sure the belt is good.

My purple and red Dyson has become hard to push. Could a belt have broken?

It's simple to tell if a belt has broken. Just switch the machine on and have a look (look, don't feel) to see if the brush roller is rotating. If it is, then the belt is not broken.
Depending on how much use your machine has had, it's quite likely that the brushes on the brush roller are worn to the point where you need a new brush roller.  Most vacuum cleaners rely on rotation of the brush roller to pull them along, so if the bristles are too short this doesn't happen.
I hope this helps. Please remember to rate this response.
