Funny...the same thing just happened to mine. The belt is still good and it was working fine. I took the brush out to clean it and now that it's back together, it is too hard to turn. All I can figure is that I put it back together wrong, but I've tried over and over to put it in correctly. I don't see any other way. I sure would be glad to know what's wrong, if any one has a clue.

I have seen belts wear faster than that, believe it or not. Here is a link to the belt you need and a link to the manual:

Is the grey "BRUSH" button on the handle depressed? The brush won't turn unless the button is down.

Why did the agitator stop?


Bryan,
Most of the time, when a brush stops, you either have a broken belt or there is something wrong with the brush. If the brush spins very freely when you try spinning it by hand, you have a broken belt.

I have a bissell powerforce bagless.that is melting belts. i've cleaned the brush bar and put a new belt on only to have the new one melted again. i don't know what could possibly be wrong with it.


Make sure all the pulleys the belt attaches to are spinning properly, if one is stuck or not spinning fast enough that will easily generate enough friction to melt the belt each time you replace it. Might need to replace other parts, or clean out more than just the brushes.

Have a bissell easy vac 3130-B and the brush on the bottom stopped turning i never looked before so i don really know if it turned in the first place


Behind the brush will be a metal thing that spins when the vacuum runs. That's what the belt loops over with the other end around the brush. You can sometimes find the belts a places like wal mart.

We have a Miele Silver Moon vacuum that isn't


Hi dear.There are two type of attachments for this vacuum cleaners to pick up the pets hair,fluff & so on.They call it"Turbo & Power Brush".Turbo brush operates with machines suction & Power one operates with small electric motor which is built in the unit.They work with the same prenciple.There is a belt drives the rotary brush.OK.there are two small yellow screw underneath the unit.Please undo them,take of the cover & clean the rotary brush,check for the belts tension.It should be enough tight to drive the brush.If not ask for spare part from Miele in your country.After cleaning please put it back in order.To test it,attached to the vacuum.Turn the power on for Turbo brush,as long as suction starts,brush should start turning too.For the Power one,there should be power button on the handle to turn it on & off.Press it.It should work.On both of the unit,brush should spin good & strong enough to do the job when it's attached the surface you are vacuuming.Check the brush after each use,cleaned if neccesary. I hope that helps.Thanks.

My brusg stopped turning after sucking up a shoe


Hi There is a reset switch on your Dyson that needs to be pressed when something gets stuck in the brushes. The reset switch helps protect the motor that spins the brush from damaging if something gets stuck inside the brushes. There is a little red pole that sits up behind the brushes on the vacuum head, I believe it's on the left side of the floor head as if you were behind the machine vacuuming. Try pushing this reset switch first. Did this fix your problem? If no, please let me know and I'll be more then happy to do some more advanced diagnosing with you.

Rotary brush is not spinning


That means that you need to replace the belt. Here is the belt you need and the manual:

The roll brush will not turn when on floor. Too much pressure stops brush. Changed belts and still not working


Turn the belt inside out. This problem stems from a design flaw in the mechanism that turns the hoover from bare floor to carpet. After taking it apart I realized that the spring that pushes the belt tight (to make roller spin) is not any where near strong enough to keep the brush rolling. My solution was to turn the belt inside out (there by essentially shortening the belt and allowing enough pressure to be applied to the roller to keep it spinning. Horrible design flaw. I am an engineer and find this pathetic. Hope this helps someone.

I have a Kenmore upright beltless that suddenly, the brush stopped spinning. Do you have an answer for this?

Hello,
I would advise you to ALWAYS to FIRST UNPLUG YOUR VACUUM before beginning any service procedure. On the Kenmore upright the belt is broken and needs replacing and you can take it to Sears / Kenmore or a local vac dealer and they can change it for you or you can attempt to do it yourself, usually it just takes a screwdriver and either a flat or a geared belt for less than $10.00 to $15.00 is an estimate.
