The belt is stretched, worn or broken and therefore not turning the roller brush. You need to replace the belt. It's simple to do. Here is a link to the belts you need and the manual which has instructions:

The brush in my powerhead of my PowerPlus will not work even though the motor works


Check to see if there is hair or string or something preventing it from moving. Or, you might have a button or something that stops the roller from moving for suction for the hose only if it detaches for use that way. If it's not that, unplug the vacuum and see if you can move the roller by hand. If not, take the roller off by unscrewing the shield, probably 4 screws and check to see if the pegs that hold the roller in are in properly or broken. Rollers aren't expensive. If it's broken, just replace it. But, I'm thinking that there is something like string holding it. Another thing might be the belt is broken. If that's the case, do this:

First, make sure the vacuum is unplugged. Turn it over and you will see that on the rollers a cover. This cover should have about 4 screws holding it on. Unscrew and remove the cover. Note how it was put on. Take a look at the roller brush ends where it goes into the sides of the vacuum. Pull the roller straight out, noting how the pegs that hold it into the vacuum are situated. Take the broken belt off. It might be attached to one side of the roller. Note which side it is on and which side of the vacuum it is on. If it's not attached, no problem, just note which side it should be on. Now, on the bottom where the belt goes around, should be a silver peg that the belt slides over. Sometimes it's hard to see, but it's there. Take the broken belt to the store and match it up to a new one. Some are thinner than others, smaller or rounder than others. Be sure to get the right one. Now, back home, comes the hard part. Put the new belt on the proper side of the roller, only. Try and get the roller back into the vacuum snugly and secure. Once you do that, holding the roller with one hand, snug against the vacuum, pull the belt down and slide it onto that silver peg. If it needs to be twisted on, do that, but it probably doesn't need to be twisted. Once you have it on the peg, move the roller around with your hand to settle the belt into the proper position. With that done, replace the roller cover and you're done, Bob's your uncle! Plug the vacuum in and have at it.

HV9010P ROLLER BRUSH DOESN'T MOVE


That is probably the belt. Open up the bottom screws and take a look. The cat or dog hair usually gets stuck in the ends of the rollers and stops the belt from effectively pushing the roller. You may find that the belt is still on the drive and the roller. If you do just clean out the roller.

Rollers not moving


A careful inspection is likely to reveal the belt that moves the rollers is broken or the rollers are jammed up with hair or fiber and cannot move---the jammed up issue usually requires no real tools but the belt will require that are where the rollers are to be opened up to get at the belt which usually slips on the shaft from a motor---tight fit.

The brush turns very little and can be totally stopped or not moving. If it does move it can be easily stopped with a finger. I checked the belt and it seems to be fine.

I accidentally got a piece of string wound around the brush roller. It stopped the roller. I unwound and removed the string the but the roller is not rotating. Is there a reset button on a hoover tempo...


You could have broke the belt of the vacuum or it could have fallen off. Find the belt and evaluate the condition of it and if it is on track.

I have Bissell Momentum Cyclonic and when vacuum is on the roller will not work, but if I tilt it back the roller will start moving.


Hello, this is Ava with Think Crucial.

There are a number of reasons why your brush roller has stopped moving. General maintenance to your vacuum is crucial and will help it work at peak performance.

First things first lets focus on the brush roller. Unplug the vacuum and turn it on its side. Look for any noticeable clumps of debris or hair strands that may be caught in the brush roller. Remove these obstructions, probably best to do so with a scissor if it's hair or long pieces of carpet fibers. After removing the debris try manually rotating the brush roller to uncover other hidden clogs. Another thing to take note of is the condition of the bristles on the roll itself. Are they loose or worn down? These are signs that your brush roller is in need of replacing.

While checking out your brush roll you might as well take a look at your vacuum's belt. Your belt should be replaced about every three months. After regular usage, the belt will stretch out, lessening the tension on the brush roller. Lesser tension diminishes the brush roller's turn rate and speed. If the belt feels loose then it certainly is affecting your vacuums suction as well as your brush roll not moving at all.

You can purchase a wide variety of high quality Bissell replacement parts for your Bissell vacuum direct from Think Crucial with free shipping and an exclusive 10% coupon for Fixya.com readers, use code: FIXYA10

Brush roller on windtunnel won't spin


It sounds like you need to replace the actuator arm or the cable to it. Look for Hoover part 43143046 for a start. I've got a similar problem.

Bissell lift off, brush won't move smell burning rubber belt fine


OK - so your brush roller is jammed. And yes, the belt is melting! Unplug the machine, remove the belt (you will need another new one anyway) then see if you can turn the roller by hand. If it turns freely without you doing anything else, then you may have put the new belt in incorrectly. However, you will probably find you can't turn it, or it's hard work (it should rotate freely). Remove the roller and check the bearings - there may well be something tangled up at one end of the roller. If you can get the roller rotating freely, all should be well.
Good luck
