Motor not turning

Sucked a carpet run into the brushes and now the motor stopped.I took it apart, belt is fine, no obstructions. Motor shaft still turns by hand ( can turn by hand and the brushes move fine). Everything else works fine lights and all. Want to know if its the motor or a switch. I can replace the motor myself but its $60 for the part and I want to make sure its this first.

    Picked up the edge of the carpet, and the motor stopped turning the brushes. The belt is fine and the brushes are free of any obstruction, they can turn manually with little effort. Is there a reset on the motor?

Don't forget, the agitator bursh doesn't work when the vacuum is upright. Maybe that is your problem.

Belt keeps coming off- Dirt Devil Breeze Cyclonic Bagless Upright Vacuum


Turn it upside down and switch on the power briefly to see what happens to the belt while running. Some vacuum cleaners have a wire guide of some sort to keep the belt running true, but yours may not have it. The end of the brush roller that connects to the belt could be worn uevenly, causing the belt to ride off the motor shaft. The motor shaft might not be parallel to the brush roller.

What to do when your vacuum brush stops spinning


Household vacuums come in all shapes and varieties, but many of them are similar on the inside. There is often a brush running across the length of the vacuum's nozzle, and it spins as the vacuum runs to help **** up debris. But sometimes the brush will stop running, and you'll notice a severe decline in your vacuum's performance.

Usually when the brush stops spinning, it's because something inside the vacuum is binding it up. Dirt can get lodged inside, and hair can get wrapped around a shaft. If there is too much pressure, the drive belt can even snap.

You can usually see and clean the brush just by turning the vacuum upside down, but to get to the other internal parts you have to take the vacuum apart. On canister vacuums, this is usually pretty easy because it's just the nozzle that needs to come apart. Full-size vacuums can be taken apart as well, but the process can sometimes be more involved.

If you can get the nozzle or the vacuum's base apart and get to the parts inside, you should see the brush (which is part of a long shaft), a drive belt, and some sort of mechanism that drives the brush, which is commonly a paddle or a motor.

Hair can get caught up in any of these components and cause them to not be able to spin, as can dirt and other debris. If you clean all of the components out and put the vacuum back together, it should work just fine. The brush, over time, may become frayed or damaged, and the drive belt sometimes will snap, but otherwise a good cleaning will usually make your vacuum run as good as new.

My broan cv30 purchased in 1996 carpet power head unit sucks up dirt and rocks but will not pick string or yarns up from carpeting. I find myself picking it up. It is sucking fine dirt and small...


It's possible you simply need a new belt or roller brush. Place the power nozzle upside-down turn the vacuum on. Ensure the brush turns. If it doesn't, the belt has broken or is too worn to turn it. Replace the belt. Make sure the tension is properly set prior to reassembling the power nozzle.
Next, with the power nozzle upside down, run the flat of your palm across the brush area. If you can barely feel the bristles, it needs replaced. A good brush will loosen the yarn and strings, but needs to be cleaned periodically.
As long as the powerhead motor is running, there is no need to replace it. If it's not running, look for a reset button and press it. There could also be a broken wire, loose connection, or bad switch causing a power head motor to not operate..

Belt not moving


Hello,

There are actually two belts on the Dyson DC07. The one belt that you can physically see, and a second belt that connects the clutch assembly to the motor shaft. If you're able to spin the one belt that's attached to the brushes, but the vacuum is not spinning the brush, this can really only be one of two problems. Either the rear belt that connects the clutch to the motor shaft has fallen off, which would prevent it from spinning, or the clutch assembly itself maybe bad. Usually when the clutch goes bad however it will make a terrible grinding noise first.


Here's a video on how you can access your clutch, and inspect the rear belt. Either way you'll need to take it apart to diagnosis it.

Hope this helps you:




Thank you,

Chris J.

Roller does not turn; I was vacuuming a rug and a string got stuck in roller-took it off but now the roller will not turn. suction is fine.


The roller drive belt may be stripped, worn partway through where it goes around the motor shaft, thrown off the motor shaft, or broken. Take the bottom plate off the carpet sweeper and have a look.

If the belt was damaged when the roller brush got stuck, then you get to replace it. On most of these, the easiest way is to put the new belt around the roller pulley, reinstall the roller, stretch the belt around the end of the motor shaft, then turn the motor by hand while pushing the belt on. If the motor also has a pulley on it, you may have to remove the motor screws to get enough slack on the belt, then pull the motor into place and put the screws back in.

Hoover windtunnel - brushes spin fine when it's upside down but when it makes contact witht the carpet it stops completely. Is this the belts?


your belt is stretch out get a new belt.but before you put the new belt on clean the motor shaft .theres usually burnt rubber left on the shaft.if you don't clean it off the new belt won't last very long.you can use a fine piece of emery cloth to take the rubber off and back down to the polished finish on the shaft.and while your at it and you have the brush roller off clean it good.check the ends to make sure they turn freely.sometimes carpet strands get wrapped around the ends.those ends come off ,some unscrew and some just pull off
