You may have to replace the brush roll retainers, part #5559113, you get borth sides with this part number. After you get the part, turn the unit on its side, at each side there is a red part with one screw holding it in place, take out that screw and pull it out, then you can pull the end caps out, replace them and re-install.

The head of dyson 23 not rotating


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 vacuums 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.

How do i put belt on?


First we need to know what brand and model your vacuum is. But usually you would make sure your vacuum is unplugged. Flip it over and look at roller brush part of the vacuum and find the screws that can be unscrewed to remove the cover of the rotating brush. Once that is off, you will find find a belt on the side of the roller that will need to be removed if broken. You will need to pull out the roller and put the new belt in and stretch it to the motor part which will sping the belt causing to spin the roller brush. Then reassemble and screw cover. Plug vacuum and happy cleaning !

Spinbrush not working on eureka as1104


If the belt is intact, the brush roller ends may be so jammed (usually with hair) that it cannot rotate. Also, if the brush roller cannot rotate, the motor shaft may be rotating in one spot on the belt and eventually will burn it out. The solution in the case of the brush roller is to remove it and check for free rotation. If the ends are binding, the brush roller will have to be disassembled to remove debris.

Brushes not rotating


If your unindentified vacuum cleaner is an upright, the belt may be stretched and unable to rotate the roller brush. The roller brush ends could be clogged with debris, preventing it from rotating freely. The solution is to disconnect your vacuum cleaner from the power and turn it upside down for inspection. It may be necessary to remove the roller brush and remove the end caps to clean inside. Replace any worn parts

Beater bar not turning


The number one cause of the "beater bar" (or brush roller) not rotating is a broken belt.

The number two cause of brushes not rotating is that something is jammed & wound around the roller, preventing it from rotating.

For the belt: If you remove the screws holding the bottom plate, you should see one (or maybe two) short, wide rubber belt(s) that goes around the roller.

If this is broken, it's easy to replace. They do break because of age and wear. One of the leading causes of breakage is when the roller gets something - a curtain cord, for example - wrapped around it. If you don't immediately shut off the vacuum & remove the cord, the belt will continue to try to turn the roller (which can't turn), and this generates a lot of heat in just a few seconds.


You can find belts at places like Sears, Home Depot, or your local vacuum shop.

For just the roller: Turn the vacuum over on its side and inspect the roller. Will it turn? Can you see something wound around it that's jamming it? While you here, take a minute and clean the roller... including using scissors or a knife to snip & remove wound hairs & threads. A clean and healthy roller will help to keep your belt happy!

The brush roller is not rotating on my Kenmore Whispertone. It will pick up on floor surfaces. Help!


Be sure that there are no fibers wound around the roller or lodged in the wheel well of the brush roller. That is usually the cause of a brush roller not rotating. You might need to use scissors to clip the fibers and then pull them from the roller. The fibers might range from human and pet hair to carpet fibers, threads, string, yarn, embroidery floss. They wind around the roller and eventually "tighten up" so that the rotator will not move. I have found that, depending on my current craft project, I may have quilting thread, knitting yarn, embroidery floss, or other such goodies wrapped around the roller. When our daughters were at home we would have long, beautiful blonde hair tangled in the roller. I hope this helps.

THE ROLLER IS DRAGGING AND MAKING A NOISE


Your drive belt is probably streched and slipping on the motor shaft. However your bearings on the roller brush may be worn out.
Take roller brush out of power head and check the bearings at each end. If they are siezed buy a new brush.CHeck to see that your brush housing is not damaged due to heat caused by siezed bearings

Most Vacuums has the belt in the middle of the rotating brush. This one has it on the left side and doesn't go around the brush. Mindboggling !


The belt runs from the metal motor pulley straight to the brush roll. To change the belt you remove the bottom plate, pull the roller straight up, then you put the belt on the metal pulley and then on the roller and you push it back into place.
