Most of these progressive drives have a bottom plate that you can take off, then you can get to the brush roll asm. There will be several screws.

Yes, most likely the belt has stretch. Flat belts do this after a short time and need to be replaced when problems start with the brush roll not wanting to turn. Also check the brush roll, make sure that the ends turn freely, if not, then replace it also.

SOURCE: How do you open the power head to remove the

Greetings,

Thank you so much for that clarification, I know the exact model of Kenmore that you have now. This model is actually made by Panasonic for Sears who puts the Kenmore name on it. I wasn't able to located the Sears owners manual, but I did find a Panasonic model that uses the same power nozzle as yours does. I will also explain how to access the roller brush below, and if you'd like to see diagrams of how to do it, you may visit the link below to the Panasonic owners manual. Start at page 46, then go back to page 40.
http://service.us.panasonic.com/OPERMANPDF/MCCG973-MUL.pdf

In order to access the roller brush on this model, here's what you need to do. Underneath of the headlight cover, there are two screws that need to removed first. In order to get to these screws, simply push on both sides of the headlight cover, and lift it straight up while pushing both sides. After the headlight cover has been removed, you'll be able to visibly see the two screws that need to be unscrewed (phillips head screw driver). Remove these two screws next.

After the screws have been removed, turn the power head upside. If you look at both the left and the right sides, you'll see a little indentation on each side. All you need to do is put a flat head screwdriver in these indentations, and pry up on both sides. This will remove the top housing. Once you have top housing removed, you'll see there's one more cover that goes over the roller brush. There are two tabs on both sides behind the roller brush. If you squeeze these two tabs, you can now remove the white colored housing that covers the brush, and have full access to the brush.

I hope that this helps you remove the twine from your beater bar. If you found this repair helpful, please be sure to rate it by clicking the thumbs up icons in the top right hand corner. If you have any other questions about how to repair this, please feel free to request a clarification, or add a comment to the repair, and I'll be more then happy to help you.

Thanks very much,

SOURCE: 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.

Change a belt


You did not state your model or make so I can't explain how to change your model but most vacuums you must remove the bottom plate held on by screws that covers the brush roll, remove the brush roll and belt and reverse the process with the new belt. Some models have the brush roll held in by screws and/or brackets, some brush rolls slide down into slots. Replace the brush roll if the bristles are worn or frayed. If you are not replacing the brush roll remove the endcaps if possible and clear any hair or debris that has worked it's way in there.
Cogged belts are different from stretch belts and do not need to be replaced at least once per year like stretch belts do. You should still remove the brush roll at least once or twice per year to clean out debris. Maybe more often if it gets hair or strings wrapped around it which can build up causing friction and heat which can melt or damage the brush roll or even the nozzle housing.

How can I get the brush roller to work


HI, it's Jim from Crucial Vacuum!

First things first, unplug your vacuum and turn it over. Check your brush roll for any large amount of debris. This usually comes in the form of carpet fibers, or hair strands wrapped around the brush roll. Try manually rotating the brush roll, this will help unclog any hidden debris.

Take off your vacuums bottom plate, this is usually held on by two screws on opposing sides of the bottom of your vacuum. Remove the brush roll and examine the belt to see if it is applying tension to the brush roll. If the belt is loose this would cause the brush roll to not work properly.

What's the quality of the bristles on the roll? If they look worn down, or loose then it's time to replace the brush roll itself.

My brush stop working


Barring any electrical failure or loose plug the most common cause for the vacuum brush to stop turning is belt clogged with debris or string.
Unplug the unit and check the brush for string or debris (Hair) wrapped around the pully on either end. Clear this and check the belt to make sure it has not broken, stripped or simply slipped off. Usually the bottom plate is held on with just a few screws. Easy to remove and check Belt slipped off or stripped replace. Belt slipped off you can sometimes put back on and be vacuuming in no time.
Anything wrapped around the spindle a pair of needle nose pliers comes in real handy here. If you have snagged a rug, sheet or sock etc.. check the manual for a reset button. Some vacuums have this and all it takes is clearing the chute then resetting the switch. Good luck hope this helps!

The brush on my Pet Power Mate attachment for my Kenmore isn't spinning. can it be fixed?


In my case the brush was seized on the axle. A wad of pet hair had wrapped one end and melted the plastic roller a little, binding it to the axle. Take the powerhead apart; Pull the white ends off the axle; Push the axle out; ream out the holes in the roller ends with the proper sized drill (#12 or 3/16", I think...close is good enough); Clean any debris out of the roller and steel wool the axle if necessary; Light oil lube job; and reassemble.

The brush on the our progressive conister stops and starts. We have replaced the belt cleaned out all areas near the belt and it still starts and stops as if it is skipping of getting stuck on somthing.


Check the brush end bearings for debris build-up and sticking bearings--remove the brush assembly, and pull off the bearing blocks. Clean the pin ends on the brush and the interiors of the bearing blocks with Q-tips, then lightly oil (3-in-one or similar) the bearing blocks and pin ends. Reassemble the brush into the sweeper head without the belt on--check for free turning of the brush. If ok, install the belt, and check for operation. Hope this helps!

The turbo brush attachment on my bissell cleanview helix suddenly wont spin. I bought this vacum a month ago. there is nothing wrong with the vacum otherwise.


The turbo brush may just need to be cleaned. If hair or other large debris gets wrapped around the brush, it can prevent it from spinning. Since the top of the turbo brush is clear, you can look in and see if there is a lot of hair wrapped around the brush. If so, you can open it up by removing the two screws on the bottom of the brush and popping the clear cover off, then cleaning all the debris from the brush (scissors work well if its hard to get dog hair off). Be careful to see how the brush goes back together as you take it apart.

If cleaning the brush doesn't fix it, the belt might be broken. As you're looking at the top of the brush, there is a little belt that goes from the brush itself to the large blue/green gear (it's red on some models) so that if you reach your hand in and turn the gear, the brush should spin. If this belt is broken or missing, it will need to be replaced. You can probably find a replacement belt online, or you can order a whole new turbo brush from the Bissell website for $24.99.

I have a Kenmore "Intuition"


I had a different vacuum that did this. I took all manner of things apart looking for blockages and the like .I found that by having the vacuum handle in the full upright position shuts off the suction to this area and doesn't power the brush BY DESIGN. I think this is to get more suction to the hose.
