I was told by a previous repair man that there is a fuse in the beater bar that needed to be replaced.


Up to my experience in my Panasonic vacuum cleaner, if the beater bar is not working this could be because the 'Carpet/Floor' selector switch is in the 'OFF' or 'FLOOR' position. In both of these positions the beater bar will not rotate. Move the selector switch to the 'CARPET' position. When in this position the beater bar will rotate once the foot pedal is pressed.

If the selector switch is in the 'CARPET' position and the beater bar is still not rotating it could be that there is something entangled in the beater bar, or the belt is worn or broken.

To check this first unplug the vacuum cleaner

Inspect the beater bar and belts to ensure that there is nothing entangled in the beater bar and that the belts are intact and are not excessively worn. If the belts are excessively worn they may slip resulting in the beater bar not rotating.

The vacuum cleaners often have an overload protection system inside the nozzle, which stops the nozzle motor when the beater bar jams to prevent belt breakage. After clearing any lint build up or jamming you may need to reset the overload protection, by pressing the reset button on the top of the floor nozzle.

Kenmore intuition non-turning beater bars, beltless model


When you press the reset button does the vac motor start but the bars do not turn? If so the drive belt may be broken that drives the bars. If so you will have to replace the belt. If the motor does not start it is possible the belt could be jammed or the motor seized or burnt out. If it's not very old check to see if it's still under guarantee.

Beater bar will not turn


Something probably got caught in the beater bar whilst you were vacuuming, that'll cause it to stop itself so that it doesn't cause any further damage, solution:
- make sure the beater bar is clear of obstructions
- step on the red pedal on the back and recline the handle
- turn the machine on with the red power button
- press the gray button next to the red power button, this is the beater bar's ON/OFF button
- if it still doesn't turn, press and hold the gray button down for 10 seconds
- if after this it still doesn't turn, inspect the beater bar again and make sure there are no obstructions and if there aren't, call the Dyson Helpline, they will set you up with a repair with the closest authorized repair dealer in your area

Beater bar has stopped turning


All beater and rotating brush bars are fairly easy to get to with a couple of screw on the bottom of your wan. They are driven by a belt and these belts come off, break, or the bar itself is stuck with rug material. Unplug your vacumn and get our screwdriver. It;s easy to figure out once inside the wan.

Beater Bar/Brush Won't Turn


Sometimes dust,lint and thread can work its way into the bearings on both ends,take the beater bar out and see if you can turn it in your hand,if it doesn't inspect the ends and clean them.Use what ever you can find to pull out the threads.Or take it outside and hose it off.

Beater Bar Does not turn


YOU MAY HAVE A POSSIBLE BAD BELT OR THE MOTOR THAT RUNS THE BAR MAY BE BAD, THE OTHER POSSIBILITY IS THE SWITCH THAT TURNS ON THE BAR MAY BE BAD. OR A WIRE COULD HAVE COME OFF THE MOTOR. i THINK YOU DO KNOW THAT THE BEATER BAR DOES NOT RUN WHEN ON WOOD FLOORS.
