I had the same problem. I just replaced the brush motor and the belt. The Bosch upright 1170 has two motors- one for the suction and the other for the brush. To get to the belt, you will need to remove 12 screws (phillips head) on the bottom of the brush head. Pop out the cover and you have access to the brush, belt and motor for the brush. The belt may be broken and/or the belt gear on the motor may be gone also. This is what happened to mine. Good luck.

I have an older version of this vacuum and there is an on/off switch for the brushes up on the handle (separate from the power on/off). Another feature is that the brushes will not rotate while the handle is in the upright position.

Check the belt, it might be stretched or broken
or carpet fibers and hairs may have clogged up the brushes to keep them from rotating

let me know if this isn't the problem

    May I ask why my solution was inappropriate? With all that you provided for information on your problem, I don't see any other reasonable explanation without seeing the problem or having you expand on the problem

SOURCE: Brush won't spin when position of handle changes

The belt for this machine is very specific and only one size fits. It is not uncommon for vac shops to sell the wrong belt because the proper belt is not available from normal supply houses, so they will substitute something they think will work.

Also, assuming you do have the right belt, check the tension arm that drops down on the v-belt when the handle is brought back. This arm has a wheel/bearing with a plastic "tire" or trim that rolls on the belt to tighten it. Sometimes, this tire cracks and falls off and then the remaining bearing won't have the necessary tension to tighten up the belt.

SOURCE: rotating brush will not turn on my Dyson DC07

Yes I had the same problem on my animal Dysom. There is a button on the top of the dysom that turns the cacuum on. Right beside that button is another one that turns on and off the brush!!! Good luck!!! I accidently one day bumped that button and couldn't get my brush to work but after troubleshooting it, that was my solution.

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.

Why does the rotating brush not work ?


Check to make sure rotating brush is turned on and check for broken or worn belt

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.

My brush is not rotating


Hi there, it's Jack at Dyson.

I'm sorry to hear your DC33's brush bar is not rotating. This is likely to be because the brush control on the cleaner head has accidentally set to 'Hard floors'. In this mode, the brush bar will not rotate. Please recline your machine into the vacuuming position, turn it on, and make sure the brush control is set to 'Carpets'.

I'm confident this will resolve the issue, as using and replacing the wand will not have any effect on the function of the brush bar. It's also important to note that the brush bar will never rotate when the machine is standing upright.

If you would like further assistance after you've checked the brush control is correctly positioned, please get in touch with us directly. You can reach us on 0800 298 0298 (UK), 1-866-693-9766 (US), or 1-877-397-6622 (CA).

Best wishes,

Jack

Brush bar doesn't rotate.


Either the bearing in the rotating brush is bad and isn't allowing the brush to turn, or in the majority of cases, the belt is broken.

Carpet brush not rotating


Did you check the drive belt for the roller? If not do so, the smell was the belt drive burning up.

Need to replace belt and cannot figure how to take it apart to get at the belt --- Took Screws off on the bottom but could not get to the belt


You have already removed the screws so lift the brush cover off. Then grasp rotating floor brush at both ends and lift. Clean strings,hair and other debris from rotating brush, paying close attention to the brush ends. Clean the debris from motor pulley and drive belt areas.Grasp old drive belt and remove from motor pulley. Place new drive belt over motor pulley and stretch other end over rotating floor brush in the space between the bristles. Place the ends of the rotating floor brush down into slots on the sides. Turn the rotating floor brush by hand several times in the direction of motor pulley. If installed properly, drive belt will center itself on rotating brush. Reposition brush cover and screw back into place. I hope that this helps you!

If the motor on the power brush is running the belt is bad, if the motor on the power brush only runs when you push the overload, the overload is bad.

Brushes do not rotate


Sounds as though your drive belt has come off. Or you have an object stopping the brushes from rotating.
