SOURCE: 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,

The part that vac's the floor is not moving as it should


You mean the brush isn't turning properly?

Turn it over and remove the base plate. Remove the belt and brush and remove the caps from the end of the brush. Remove all the hair and put it back together again.

THE ROLLER BRUSH WILL NOT TURN. I PUT ON A NEW BELT AND IT BROKE IMMEDIATELY. THE ROD THAT HOLDS THE BELT IS MOVING BUT THE BRUSH IS NOT MOVING.


Apparently something is binding the brush, keeping it from turning. Remove any string, hair, etc., that is wrapped around the brush. Removing the brush is the easiest way to do this, then cut the material through at one point.
While the brush is out, check the ends for signs of damage that may cause the brush to bind. Also, check the area the brush connects to.
Reattach the brush and try to spin it. If it spins freely, put your vacuum back together, with another belt, and try again.
If this doesn't work, I suggest a new/different vacuum.

Brush not moving, suction working


This machine is made for Sears by Panasonic. The power head, depending on model has a "gear" / cog belt or a standard flat rubber belt. First turn the power head over and see if the brush roller turns easily, if so you do need a new belt. To access the belt you will have to remove the hood from the power head. There are 4 screws, one at each of the corners to take out. Once the hood is off you will see where the belt goes and find "teeth" in the motor shaft for the motor / brush roller if you need a gear belt. If both of these are flat you need a rubber belt.
You can go to sears.com and find the belt you need with the vacuums model number.

Belt not moving how do you check it


The belt should be replaced yearly so if you haven't changed it recently, I would. You might find that the belt is still intact, but that doesn't necessarily mean that the belt is okay. Even though the belt is intact it can still be stretched and if it is it will slip and not turn the brush properly. To access the belt turn the machine over and remove the (3) screws over the roller brush cover. There is also a clutch belt that should be replaced periodically, you should check that too. Here is the belts you need:

Brush not moving in Bissell pro-heat


if the belt is more then 6 months old or more, then the belt will have to be replaced reguardless of the way it lookes. belts can stretch over time and when you put the machine on the carpet the friction causes the brush to stop because the belt has stretched. i would try this first. hope this helps

please clarify what you mean?
Do you mean motor bearings or brush roll bearings?
brush roll bearings can be adjusted to lower the brush closer to the carpet when worn.
to do this remove the front brush assembly, there is usually a sticker below the belt hole showing RED = POSITION 1 HIGHEST (ie a new brush roll)
GREEN = POSITION 2 MIDDLE (brush part worn)
BLACK = POSITION 3 LOWEST (brush fully worn)
At each side of this there are 2 clips unlock these and remove the bottom cover.
Release the belt tension by rotating the belt release at the front.
Before removing the brush roll, at each end of the brush roll there is a grey plastic bearing carrier (Square at the ends) MARK this with a pen or marker just so you know the original position, also look closely for the coloured markings as indicated above or numbering 1,2 or 3.
If RED or "1" is showing you need to remove the brush roll by pulling it out and rotate the endcaps to Green or "2" and re-insert the brush roll, If Green or "2" is showing then rotate the endcaps to Black or "3" and re-insert.
If Black or "3" is showing then the brush roll is worn and cannot be adjusted any more, fit a new brush roll and insert with RED or "1" showing.
To re-attach the belt, move the belt to the middle of the roll and rotate the belt knob at the front ensuring the belt engages with the hook on the inside.

Hoover steamvac gold-belt?


Do you mean the brushes will not spin? the most likely cause is the bearings have seized, it will need repair or replacement. check also the brush speed knob. when on, and handle tilted the brushes should rotate. There is no belt.

I have a Miele S1721 Powerhouse upright vacuum. When the belt broke I took it into the shop (because when i tried to replace the belt, the tension was so tight I couldn't get it back together!!). When I...


Hi
The Miele uprights (S170 and upwards) with the Powerhouse title are ALL Panasonic uprights which have been at one time sold in the UK. Therefore the upright may use TWO drive belts which need to be looked at: Take off the sole plate and examine the drive belt which is around the beater bar. Check that this belt is moving easily. Then look at the fly wheel to the motor (usually to the left hand side) and check that the smaller motor belt is moving - it may be broken which is why the beater bar isn't moving and why tension is tight.
Generally NONE of the Miele Powerhouse models have a manual selector for height adjustment - they all use auto adjustment which means no manual selector. The vacuum principle means that general carpet which comes into contact with the brush creates a vacuum anyway between the brush and the floor. If the brush isn't touching the floor then its a possibility dirt or debris has managed to get between the bottom 2 rollers after the beater bar. Check behind the wheels to see that there is nothing there - most auto adjusting Powerhouse models will have a spring behind the wheel and it may have come off.

Dirtlifter Powerbrush does not turn


Make the machine safe from the power source first
When you remove the belt access door you are looking at the pump belt,
To gain access to the brush belt you must turn the machine over and remove the brush at the bottom of the machine.
there are two screw in the red retainers at each side of the brush, remove the screws and the retainers and the pivot arms ,you should see the brush belt and the pump
