    I cannot seem to find the two screws loacted at the bottom of the power head. I unlatched it from the sides and the cover is still securely attached.

    When the switch is in the "carpet" position, the powermate brushes run ok; when the switch is in the "floor" position, the cannister motor does not run at all.

Question; you can't run it properly meaning? The agitator (brush) isn't spinning? If that's the case, then Kazong is right, check the belt. If the belt is fine, check to make sure you didn't damage the bearing of the agitator.

How to get to the agitator/belt:

Remove the 2 screws that are holding the cover into place. Usually found on the bottom of the power head; in some cases, they are found on the top of the cover. Detach the cover from the back and the sides.

Why won't shark cordless stick vac motorized brush work?


Is the brush rotating, if not the belt is broken or jammed, if so remove the bottom plate and all will be reveiled.

Brush won't spin when carpet cleaner is running


see this causes and fix it. God bless you
If the vacuum cleaner brush is not spinning, the brushroll bearing might be jammed. Try removing the brushroll assembly and cleaning all hair, string, lint, etc. from the brushroll bearing. If that doesn't solve the problem the brushroll may need to be replaced.
If the vacuum cleaner brush is not spinning, the brushroll assembly itself might be jammed. Try removing the brushroll assembly and cleaning all hair, string, lint, etc. from the brushroll bearings. If that doesn't solve the problem the brushroll may need to be replaced.

If the vacuum cleaner brush is not spinning the cogged belt might be broken, stretched out too much, or might have fallen off. Check the belt and replace as needed.

The carpet brush stopped rotating. Is there a quick fix? It rotates by hand and does not appear to be jammed in any way.


Make sure that all plug ins are correctly attached. Remove botton plate to determine if the rubber belt is broken. Replace belt if broken


Please vote if my information is helpful or not. Recommended. Thanks UAW Local974

Brushes stopped rotating


Needs a new drive belt. Find the screws holding the bottom panel onto the floor section of the vac. take out those screws and you should see the motor and the brushes and a broken belt underneath the panel. Check that the brushes spin freely. If not you may have something like hair or string or something jamming the brush. If so cut out the obstruction and then rotate the brushes again and look to see if they rotate evenly, without wobbling because in some vacs if the brushes become jammed and run like that for a while sometimes it wears out the bearings or bushings holding the brush in place and if they are worn you need to replace those as well or when you replace the belt and run the vac it wont take long to break the belt again.

The brushes stopped turning. I cleaned the filter


Can you rotate the brushes manually (grab some of the yellow bristles and rotate the brushes). If they are not jammed, then your air fan drive is clogged or broken. Air must pass through the fan to spin the brushes... so confirm air flow by powering the machine on and feeling for decent air flow. Clear any obstructions that my restrict air flow....

Works in FLOOR position but not in CARPET.


The power nozzle has a reset button. Push that and that should fix the issue. You could of sucked up the corner of a piece of carpet causing the brush roller to become jammed. If that doesn't work, there could be a problem with the hose. The hose perhaps isn't providing the power to run the power nozzle.

No suction


you still have a clog in there something is keeping the brushes from spinning. Be sure to remove any hair/string etc twisted around the brushes. Make sure the belt hasn't slipped off the metal pin behind the brushes, this is what creates the rotation. The brushes have a hard plastic molding on each end that fit into the sides of the vacuum. Make sure you have these on the right way or they will strip out and you have to replace the housing and the brushes. Have you cleared any blockages from the feed behind the brushes? Be sure to take the hose and extend it out and run a broom handle or something down it to be sure you do not have something lodged in there. Good luck .. if you need more detail post back. These can be rebuilt if needed, hopefully it is just something lodged further down the suction canal.
