    I cleaned all the debris from the rollers and they still won't turn.  There is suction in the wand, but not thru the main nozzle.  How can I get at the belt?

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.

SOURCE: 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.

My Shark rotator is very hard to push at times, easy at other times. What makes it hard to push and how do I fix it?


Does it have a "brushes" lowering/higher switch?
Normally due to brushes being too low in particular on deep pile carpets??
check the actual fixings for the rotating brushes are ok and the brush not simply need "clicking" back into place?

Why does the brush continue to rotate on bare floor setting as well as using hose attachments?


Hello! The brush roll shut-off feature is on select models. Your vacuum may or may not have this feature. If it does not, the brushes will continue to rotate while hose is removed or in use and at all times while cleaner is on. The vacuum must be in the upright position to lift rotation brush off the carpet when cleaning above the floor. Be sure the vacuum does not tilt forward when doing above floor cleaning. Hope this was helpful!

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

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

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.

I have a Hoover Steam Vacuum, All Terrain, and the bristle brushes are not rotating. They appear to be seated properly and, the entire vacuum is clean and free of lint, hair etc., so everything is working...


I checked the owner's manual and the parts breakdown for your model F5807. Both showed that your model has a stationary brush strip and not rotating brushes. Is F5807 the correct model number?

The brush on my bagless vacuum won't rotate. It


if the brush doesnt rotate, the belt is either broken or stretched. If you have a Dyson, you will have to replace the entire assembly for about 80 dollars. Other brands you can simply replace the belt for about 5 dollars.
