If this uses a cogged belt, it should not fall off unless it is the wrong one. Give me the whole model #, then I can look and see what you have. The number of the power head is needed.

SOURCE: THE ROLLER ON MY SHARK

We have only had our Navigator for 6 months and the bar won't turn. We took the whole beater bar head apart and it was a wiring problem in the beater bar motor.
What a piece of junk this is, very poorly made and has many design flaws.
Looking for something now to take it's place!

My Power head on my Dyson Animal DC39 will not stay spinning. Suction Issue?


There should be a red insert on the right-hand side on the cylindrical bulge behind the brush cylinder. Check that this is moving when you push the button. The red insert should stay pushed in for the brush to rotate. The insert moves in an out as well as rotates in order to lock in the 'in' position. Mine is a little sticky on the rotation and I need to shake the brush head a little in order to get it to rotate and lock.

The motor in the power head ran at a higher pitch for a for 8 to 10 seconds then stopped. If I push the reset button the powerhead may or may not start or it may start and run for a few seconds. The brush...


Did you check the belt? A broken belt results in lower strain on the motor, causing it to run faster resulting in the faster speed and higher pitch. This could result in overheating, which will cause the motor to shut off.
If this isn't the problem you'll need to take it to the nearest Aerus Electrolux store for trouble-shooting and repair.

Hi, try pushing the reset button with a pen or paper clip. If that doesn't work, the motor may need to replaced. If the reset button is stuck, if the reset button is stuck, use a pair of tweezers to pull it back out......

Secondly, your belt can also be broken or has come off the pulley. Remove the bottom plate and investigate.

The power head will not turn. I tried to reset by pushing the red reset button and nothing happened. I could not depress it.


If the button could not be depressed, it was most likely not tripped.
First, check to see that the drive belts are on the machine and have tension on the roller for the power head. Second, check to see that you can turn the brush on the power head by hand. If you can not, you need to remove it and clean it of any debris, paying special attention to the two end pieces that hold it in place. If possible, squirt a little WD40 on these end pieces to make sure they are loose and can be turned by hand. Check the connections that power the motor on the power head.
Let me know if you have any trouble and I will gladly help you further. I do not charge for my assistance.

My power head on my Kenmore canister sweeper dont work right.How do I get it apart and fix the problem?


Try pushing the reset button on the top of the power head first. There is a protection system on Kenmore canisters that protect the belt from breaking, and if something was vacuumed up into the head, it will cause this reset switch to activate to protect the belt. On the top of the power head look for the a small red button, or a grey button that says overload protection switch, and push down on it.

If the power nozzle lights are coming on, and the machine is making noise, then this means that the belt may be off inside the head, however if you're not getting any power, and the head light is not coming on, then this is probably a bad hose on the unit.

I have written a detailed repair on how to replace the belt on the Kenmore canisters on Fixya, just follow the link below. The only difference on the one I helped repair and yours may be the that the screws are actually located on the bottom of the power nozzle rather then underneath of the headlight cover. The other steps will be the same, just unscrew the screws on the bottom of the power head.

Here's the link:

Please let me know if this didn't fix it, and I'll help you walk through this further and help you diagnosis the power head further.

Thanks,

The power head does not work and the reset light is illuminated. Is this an easy fix and if so, what do I need to do?


When that happens, push the reset button to tell the motor that its ok, and reset. If you picked up a corner of carpet and lock up the brushroller, that's why that happened. Also, it could be a belt issue.

If you push the reset button and still nothing.. it's the belt. Have a look and see if it is the belt. If so, it's easy to replace the belt.. If the belt is fine, meaning it's tight and isn't wiggling around, then you most likely broke it.

Dyson DC 24 pick up head wont spin


- Look for the reset button on the side of the brushbar housing - there should be a red sticker and a red button. Push it once. It's
not gonna stay depressed, it's gonna pop right out - that's normal.
- Step on the red pedal on the back
- Turn the machine on with the red power button
- Press the gray button next to the red power button - this is the ON/OFF switch for the brushbar - if it doesn't spin, press and hold the gray button down for 10 seconds
- If it still isn't spinning, remove the brushbar and make sure nothing is blocking it and withholding it from spinning
- For further troubleshooting assistance call the Dyson helpline, they know what they're doing

The roller brush will not stay on-& the cord rewind is stuck on


There is a reset on the power head, does the wand fit tight in the neck of the power head, if not you may have a problem there, either the wand or the neck. If the lever is stuck on, then it is jammed or broke, maybe a spring is out of place, in any event the canister will have to be taken apart to see what the problem is.
