Hey there scrappy13, I would suggest you unplug the unit, turn it upside down and remove the bottom plate uncovering the brush assembly. Inside there should be a belt which drives the spinner brush. If that is in tact, then the brush itself may have been unseated when you pulled the rug out. It should be obvious to find the correct placement. Reseat, ensuring the belt is attached properly to the motor as well as the brush. If the belt has broken, a replacement is available at a registered repair facility. Good Luck!

Vacuum turns on but the brush is not rotating


Most likely a problem with the drive belt or the beater brush. Either the drive belt is broken or the beater brush is frozen due to debris. If you can not turn the beater brush by hand, it should be removed and cleaned well. The ends of the beater brush that hold it into the vacuum should be lubricated with some WD40 and moved by hand until they are free. Once the turn freely, replace the beater brush. If the drive belt is broken or missing, it needs to be replaced.

Eureka altima stopped power mid vaccuming, have changed outlits


make sure all your filters are clean,try to turn the brush roller by hand a few times if it turns real freely then the belt is broke.if it is reall hard to turn then you have something wrapped around the ends of the roller where the bearings are.your motor guard might be keeping it from running because it got too hot take the brush roller out and the belt let it cool down for 20 minutes then try it without the roller and belt.you should be able to take the ends of the roller off by just pulling out on them so you can remove what ever is in there

Drive belt ; whirlewind litespeed.


There is nothing but the motor shaft. The belt rides on the shaft and around the brush assembly on the other end. The belts fail if the brush assembly gets jammed, for example from a rug ot debris. If this occurs you should immediately turn off the unit,unplug the power cord, and clear the jam. Also occasionally cleaning the brush and being sure the bearings on each end turn freely will help prolong belt life. The brush assemblies also look to be available. lysager@gmail.com

The brush roll on my Eureka Bagless The Boss 4 dimension cleaning vaccum itsn't working. How do I fix it?


Take either the plate over the brush roll off, if it doesn't come off, then the top cover comes off, should be 2 or 3 screws on the top to remove. Then you can get to the belt and brush roll. Check the brush roll, make sure the ends turn freely, if not replace it. The belt is either broke or stretched to the point that it won't turn the roll, replace it.
