Hey there bankshots, if you look at the bottom of the head of the vacuum, you should be able to see the brushes. Their are some screws to remove to gain access to the inside of the bottom panel. When opened, you should be able to see the entire spinning brush assembly. On one side, there is an area which has no brushes and may contain the remnents of your belt which most likely is the problem. These belts are often replaced and not the sign of any thing to worry about. Replacements can be found at registered repair facilities. Alternately, a professional will do it for you for a modest charge. Also your warranty may cover this if your machine is less than a year old, or you purchased the extra protection from the seller. Good Luck!

Brush is not spinning on the pet hair power brush

Those things work off of suction, which spins a cog wheel that rotates and spins brush via a small belt. Disassemble the brush and check belt. Make sure the apparatus is clean and free of debris

My brush stopped spinning, but instead makes a loud plastic grinding noise.

Both ends of the brush roll should spin freely. You need to replace the brush roll.

Brush roller not spinning. belt, spindle okay. roller taken out and cleaned, no thread. replaced but no dice. ???

Use only BISSELL Style 10 Replacement Belts (#32074) in your BISSELL PowerForce Bagless.
  1. Unplug cleaner from electrical outlet.
  2. With Rotating Floor Brush removed from vacuum cleaner, grasp old Drive Belt and remove from Motor Pulley. Discard old Drive Belt.
  3. Place new Drive Belt over Motor Pulley and stretch other end over Rotating Floor Brush in the space between the bristles.
  4. Place ends of Rotating Floor Brush down into slots on sides as shown.
  5. Turn Rotating Floor Brush by hand several times in the direction of Motor Pulley. If properly installed, Drive Belt will center itself on Rotating Brush.
  6. Reposition Brush Cover and snap back into place. Check to be sure all three latches are secured.
  7. When you turn on the vacuum, do you see the motor that spins the belt spinning at the bottom? If not, it sounds like you may have a burned out motor.

Irobot roomba 570 brush not spinning

Unscrew and remove the side brush. There is probably a wad of hair and dirt underneath it that's keeping it from spinning. When it's clean, *snap* the brush back on, then screw it into place. If it still doesn't turn, you'll need a new module. Call support: 877-855-8593. Good luck.

If this is a Hoover Steam vac, the turbine which drives the brushes is bad. If not a Hoover, then what is it, they are different, need brand and model number.

Hoover windtunnel u6634-900

I have the same problem. I believe, after some inspection, that the mechanism which allows for the circular spin of the brush has failed. Though I'm no mechanic, I believe my girlfriend's long (and beautiful) hair became entangled underneath the gray "end-cap" causing breakage of the rotating mechanism (which I believe is normally housed within the brush under the rectangular "end-cap"...the other "end-cap" piece is circular). Now the brush will spin about 6 rotations but with each spin the gray "end-cap" will extend on its screw rather than spinning freely. I believe my only option is to order another brush. We'll see if it solves the problem.
