Hello,
I would advise you to ALWAYS to FIRST UNPLUG YOUR VACUUM before beginning any service procedure.
Not knowing the bran name or model # I know of a vacuum cleaner dealer that has been in business since 1946 or 1948 and they have knowledge of a lot of old vacuums cleaners dating back and might be a good choice to check out and you can give them the brand name and model # needed to supply you with either a new, used or rebuilt brushroll for your vacuum. Reminder to change your belt every 4 to 6 months on regular basics for the best cleaning and to keep your brushroll clean. Also check with your local vac dealer. So if you need further assistance, please feel free to contact your local vacuum cleaner dealer in your area or in the yellow pages, or contact the factory phone number or website to further assist you with your questions.

Belts aren't broke roller still won't roll


Belt dosent have to be broke it may be stretched. It needs around 30lbs of pressure to roll the brush on carpet.
If it dose not roll off carpet at all the brush bearing are locked up. You may be able to remove the roller and check theme. Most likely you wil need a new roller brush.

When we changed the belt the new belt broke right away and the brush roller wouldn't spin. My husband cleaned off the roller and got it moving slowly again, but when we went to re-attach everythin


the thing you call wheels are actually called roller bearings that fit at both ends of the brush-roll there probably seized up you can get a new brush-roll with bearings from the link below.

Beater bar belt install


  • 1

    Unplug the vacuum cleaner and turn it upside down, flat on the floor, with the roller brush facing up.

  • 2

    Remove the the bottom cover plate from the vacuum by prying it off gently with a screwdriver blade. Set aside the cover plate.

  • 3

    If the old belt is broke, remove it by pulling the belt from underneath the roller bush. If the belt is not broken but simply worn out, and is still attached, cut it off with scissors.

  • 4

    Remove the roller brush by lifting both ends from the grooved slots in the housing of the vacuum cleaner.

  • 5

    Cut away hair, thread, string and other debris wound around the roller, using the scissors. Tangles on the roller brush are a common reason for belt wear and breakdowns due to the added weight and stress on the roller brush.

  • 6

    Slip the replacement belt over the roller brush and seat the belt in the groove in the center of the roller.

  • 7

    Slide the roller brush back into the grooved mounts on either side of the housing and snap into place.

  • 8

    Pull back on the new belt and slip the loop over the pulley attached to the vacuum motor.

  • 9

    Replace the bottom cover by snapping it back on the housing until it clicks into place.

    The belt for the maain vaccume broke off and now with the new belt the roller will not work.


    It sounds like your roller brush itself might be bad. Try holding the roller brush holding just the end caps with your finger tips, and spinning the roller. Does the roller spin freely? If no, this indicates that your roller brush's bearings have melted together. This is a common problem for Bissell vacuums, as they use cheaper plastic bearing caps. The roller brush is not covered under the warranty either.

    When this part goes bad, this causes the belt to break almost immediately. If you tried replacing the belt, and it broke immediately, your roller brush has gone bad.

    Just purchased this Dyson dc24 today. brush doesn't spin after gettin tangled in a cord. removed the cord from the brush OK. I have several times: removed the brush and replaced it OK. pushed the red...


    When you removed the brush roller dod you examine the end of the actual roller that is opposite from the removal opening. There is a gear that the roller fits over that may have gotten stripped when it became tangled. Check that the gear has not rounded off and look inside the roller bar to see if the area where the gear fits into may have gotten stripped as well. You might try to operate the vacuum without the roller brush installed for a few seconds just to see if the gear turns. When I say gear, it is actually a somall "post" about 1-2" long that the roller brush fits over. Hope this helps!

    I bought a replacement brushroll because the one in the vaccum cleaner is worn out.How do I go about putting the brush in the vaccum cleaner. Do I pull it out or do I have to unscrew the entire bottom...


    Greetings from GoVacuum,

    Make sure the vacuum is NOT plugged in. In order to replace the roller brush, you'll need to unscrew the 6 screws on the bottom plate of the vacuum cleaner. Oreck uses a Phillips Head screw, so you'll need to get a Phillips head screw driver to replace the brush.

    After removing the screws from the bottom plate, simply pull up on the plate by putting your fingers into the open area where the existing brush is located. After the bottom plate has been removed you will have access to the roller brush and belt.

    You can now just grab the roller brush and pull straight up on it. It's beneficial to change the belt of the vacuum when you're replacing the roller brush anyways. There is a spare belt on the actual bottom plate of all Oreck XL vacuums.

    You'll notice that the new roller brush has two black square plastic caps on both sides of the roller brush. You can look on the outside of this black cap, and you'll see the words OLD and NEW. Rotate the NEW side so it's facing upwards, and the OLD side is the side that's down inside the vacuum cleaner, make sure that both sides have the NEW side facing upwards. You'll need to wrap the belt around the silver pin in the back of the vacuum on one side, and through the roller brush's metal pulley on the other side. The just stretch the belt with the brush inside of it, and place the black plastic parts back into the vacuum cleaner.

    Congratulations, you've now just replaced the roller brush in your Oreck!

    My vacuum has good suction but i can hardly push it across my carpet. any answers????


    is your brush roller turning,that would cause it to be hard to push .the brush roller helps it walk across the floor.if your brush roller isn't turning then your belt is broke or the brush itself siezed up.unplug the vacuum and try to turn the brush roller .if it turns real free then your belt is broke.before you replace the belt always clean the motor shaft ,the old rubber from the old belt melts onto the motor shaft .if you don't clean it your new belt won't last very long.please leave feedback

    Brush roller does not rotate around


    If the rotating brush doesn't turn, then it's almost a certianty that the belt (which connects the rotating brush to the motor pulley of the vacuum) is either horribly stretched or just plain broken. Either way, it needs to be replaced. The correct Hoover belt part # for your vacuum is 38528040 (changed from the original part number of 38528027). This is a very common Hoover belt, but would recommend your best source as being a local, independently-owned vacuum dealer dealer (as opposed to a deprtment / big box store, both of which carry very limited belts).

    My purple and red Dyson has become hard to push. Could a belt have broken?


    It's simple to tell if a belt has broken. Just switch the machine on and have a look (look, don't feel) to see if the brush roller is rotating. If it is, then the belt is not broken.
    Depending on how much use your machine has had, it's quite likely that the brushes on the brush roller are worn to the point where you need a new brush roller.  Most vacuum cleaners rely on rotation of the brush roller to pull them along, so if the bristles are too short this doesn't happen.
    I hope this helps. Please remember to rate this response.
