Spin brush not working anymore.

Hi reddevil6,

My spin brushes stopped working on our steamer and was wondering if there is anything I can do myself to repair it? The female connector doesn't seem to turn anymore. I've removed the spin brush and cleaned the it up but without the main unit's spin brush connector working I feel that I need to take it apart and see what may be broken.

Any ideas?

Thanks in advance,
Mike

Is the shaft still on the brush block, if it broke off, then replace the block. if it is ok, then the turbine(#13) is most likely the problem. It is what drives the brushs. You may be able to take the turbine apart and clean it, if that doesn't work the replace it.

Dyson DC25 brush won't spin when touching the floor. If I lift it off the floor it spins, once it touches the floor it stops. Any idea what the problem is?


I can think of three things that could be wrong.

The easiest one is that the brush has hair and fluff wrapped around its bearing. This happened to me and was causing a burning rubber smell. Turn it over and remove the base plate. Lift the belt by putting a piece of cord under it and slide the brush out. Remove one end of the brush and slide the spindle out. Clean all the hair out and reassemble.

The internal drive belt is worn, or the nylon bush that it runs on.

The clutch is worn out.

The last two are not as easy to fix as the main drive belt is enclosed in the centre of the clutch. There are videos though that show you the process. Have a read and a watch, but try my first tip first.

    The vacuum was working fine then suddenly the main brissels that spin to collect the dirt stopped spinning, the vacuum still has suction but barely picks anything up because the brissels are not spinning


    Best thing to do is remove the spinning brush and clean all debris from the brush and most importantly from the ends of the brush. The ends of the brush usually have two holders (square?) that hold the brush in place on the vacuum. The brush is supposed to spin in these holders. If it does not, provided the belt is okay, the location where the brush contacts these holders need to be cleaned and lubricated with some WD40 or some 3 In 1 oil. Be sure the belt is in proper running condition as well.

    Eats belts immediately


    HI There,

    Usually when the belt breaks immediately, this indicates that your roller brush has gone bad and needs to be replaced. I have never seen the motor shaft being damaged and causing belts to break before. When the roller brush can't spin because it's bearings have worn out, the motor shaft continues to try and turn the belt, but since the belt can't spin the motor shaft at that point burns right through the belt.

    To make sure that it's your roller brush, remove the brush from the vacuum cleaner, and hold it using just your two pointer finger tips, holding just the bearings caps at the end of the bar, and not the bar itself.

    Try to spin the brush using your thumbs. Does the brush spin freely without resistance? It should spin completely around 3-4 times on each spin. If it doesn't spin, then your bar is bad.

    If the brush doesn spin, and it continues to break belts, this means that the belt is being installed incorrectly, and is being pinched by the roller brush. Pull the belt forwards after installing to make sure the brush spins freely.

    Hope this helped you,

    This unit uses a turbine assy to turn the brushes. The brushes could have something jamming them. Remove the brush unit, it is held on 2 spring hooks 1 on each side. The brush unit is driven thru a 1/4" square post, only one brush is driven and it drives the next then it drives the next etc. If something is jammed in these gears it will stop the entire brush assy. The turbine assy could be bad, but I would check the brush assy first.

    Brushes not spinning....


    My status light came on, the vac beeped twice and stopped. I noticed my brushes weren't spinning. I took an eyeglass screwdriver and took off the center screw that holds on the brushes. I cleaned the shaft that the brushes spin on. replaced brushes and it works great! I just did this now and it is still running. my status light problem is fixed my roomba is 4 years old and I am on my 2nd battery. Seems to have fixed the problem. FYI it was wrapped with hair, dirt and it was greasy.

    No spinning.


    Most common problem when the brushes stop spinning on this model or any "SpinScub" model is that screen filter is clogged as suggested above. If that isn't your problem then likely the turbine has gone bad. Some genius at Hoover designed a metal gear to drive a Nylon gear (Inside the black part that says "Assembled in Mexico". If the brushes jam hard and sudden, the metal gear just shaves the nylon right off. Solution: You will need a new turbine unit. Cost for the part is about $36, installation takes about 15 minutes (about 6 screws and two tubes).
    I refurbish and repair vacuums and steam cleaners for a living and see this all the time.
