Dysentery dc17 beater bar doesn't work.


It could be something clogging or restricting the brush. It could be a broken or bad belt, the brush motor may be bad, it could be the switch that turns the brush on and off or the switch that turns the brush on when you pull the handle back.

The brush quit turning


Sounds like 2 separate motors. remove the beater bar and see f that motor turns without any load. Of not time for a new beater bar motor.

Brushes not turning


Unplug it from the power source. Then remove the cover and see if the belt is broken or derailed from the motor.

The beater motor will not turn. Is there a fuse? I've tried the reset, but this still doen't work. My wife smelled a burning smell and quit using.


Sounds like you need a new belt.Turn it upside down and locate the screws on the bottom.Remove those screws,and then the plate they hold on(if there are no screws then the plate will be held by clips just pull it off,carefully.The brush now may be lifted out,but before you do.The belt fits around the brush.Find which side,if the belt is broken and still in the vacuum,it should still be on the side it came from.If the belt is not still in the vacuum,there is a groove in the brush about one inch wide.That is where the belt fits.The other end of the belt fits on a small wheel about 4-5 inches back from the brush.There may be a small plate over the belt and wheel if so just remove it and you will see what I am talking about.

Hoover F7458-900 SteamVac The brushes quit


My Hoover F7458-900 was doing the same thing, brushes not turning and since it is about 7 years old and out of warrenty I decided I had nothing to lose so I took it apart after reading all the other posts on this problem. The brushes are actually turned by a turbine motor (no belts involved) that runs off air produced by the vaccum motor of the unit. The air turns a metal spindle that then turns several nylon gears in the turbin the last of which turns the brushes. The nylon gear that engages with the metal spindle was worn down to the point that it was no longer engaging with it and thus not turning.
The only fix for this problem is to buy a new turbin motor which is not that expensive about $34 plus shipping since they don't sell just the nylon gear. Hope this helps

Power cuts maybe after 10 mins use, then after switching off for an hour or so, it works again! repeat.


I would think that it is probably a motor going bad and tripping the overload switch. After the overload resets, it will run again. Is there a chance that the motor is still under warranty? Some vacuum maker warranty the motor for longer than the rest of the vacuum (Dirt Devil is 6 years on the motor) so hopefully they will fix it for free. One other thing, should be obvious, but I'll ask anyway -- the brush is turning properly and the vacuum has suction when it is working, right? if something is jammed that could overload the motor as well.

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.
