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.

Brush roller not spinning. belt, spindle okay. roller taken out and cleaned, no thread. replaced but no dice. ???


Use only BISSELL Style 10 Replacement Belts (#32074) in your BISSELL PowerForce Bagless.
  1. Unplug cleaner from electrical outlet.
  2. With Rotating Floor Brush removed from vacuum cleaner, grasp old Drive Belt and remove from Motor Pulley. Discard old Drive Belt.
  3. Place new Drive Belt over Motor Pulley and stretch other end over Rotating Floor Brush in the space between the bristles.
  4. Place ends of Rotating Floor Brush down into slots on sides as shown.
  5. Turn Rotating Floor Brush by hand several times in the direction of Motor Pulley. If properly installed, Drive Belt will center itself on Rotating Brush.
  6. Reposition Brush Cover and snap back into place. Check to be sure all three latches are secured.
  7. When you turn on the vacuum, do you see the motor that spins the belt spinning at the bottom? If not, it sounds like you may have a burned out motor.

Brush works intermittedly - I've looked at the common solutions listed but none seem to work...shaking it & reseating the canister will get it working again sometimes but obviously that doesn't seem to...


I just had the same problem. I would turn on the vac, and it worked fine. When I turned on the brush it would work for a few seconds then shut off. Through troubleshooting I found out it had nothing to do with a bad power connection. By chance I took off the side HEPA filter to see how it looked. I realized that I have never changed it and that it was filthy. I removed it and turned on the vac, then the brush. It took a few tried, but the brush motor got back to full strength. I reassembled everything and it works fine now. It seems that the clogged filter was causing the brush motor to shut off. I'm running my vac w/o the HEPA filter while i wait for a new one to ship. Hope its the same prob for you!

Our vacum isn't picking up @ all.we did have some thread around the brushes, about an inch wide. it has an odor like it is getting hot. the vacumn is about 1-1/2 yrs old. we need help. thanks BETTY COX.


Hi, The most likely cause would be a blockage. If you remove vac hose, does it **** on your hand? secondly, with the vac unplugged, Can you turn the brush reasonably freely ? Is the drive belt on?

I cant get the power brush to work is there a reset button? the vacuum is only 2 months old dirt devil 12amp bagless featherlite


can you turn the brush by hand? if it turns real freely the belt is broke or the brush siezed up make sure there isn't any carpet strans wrapped around the ends of the brush otherwise the brush won't turn.if its the belt make sure you clean the motor shaft before you put on the new belt,the old rubber from the old belt will make the new belt run unevevly and break again..good luck

Rainbow stops shortly after starting to vacuum


There is a thermal fuse on the motor field that sometimes fails. Sometimes the fuse does what it is supposed to do - prevents motor from overheating.
Causes:
a) Improperly worn motor brushes
b) bad motor bearings (that usually leads to uneven motor brush wear)
c) very dirty cooling air filter

To access filter and the motor - use small flat screwdriver to remove clear side panels. You will see 4 or 6 Phillips screws. Remove screws - cap will come off.

Good Luck,
Rocky

Motor shaft wont turn on EL2050


Have you tried running the brush motor without a belt on it? Does it not spin without the belt? If so, you may have worn motor brushes (not too expensive parts, but make sure you order both brushes, or make sure they are sold as a set). If your motor is in good condition (you can check the brush motor by hooking it up to a momentary power source NEVER apply constant power to a motor that is not mounted to either the machine or something to keep it from running away) There is sometimes a switch down towards the brush head assembly that could be bad.

Electrolux 6500sr power nozzle motor


If you go to aerusonline.com, there is a dealer locater function that will allow you to find the nearest aerus electrolux store. If there isn't one local, I would call one of them and have them ship it to you. You may be able to find an aftermarket motor on line, but there are several different models so you may or may not get the right motor. Good Luck!!
