If the motor is actually running and not picking anything up, I would believe it to be either a broken drive belt for the beater brush or the beater brush is frozen or both. Remove the beater brush and clean, paying special attention to the end pieces that hold it into the vacuum. If possible spray a little WD40 on them to be sure they turn freely on the brush. Also a good idea to replace the belt, but be sure it is installed correctly in order to have the brush move in the proper direction.

Sure, Disconnect the two wires going directly to the motor. Then apply line voltage directly to the motor terminals. If motor does not turn it is defective - check the brushes for wear or bad contact. If motor runs then the electronics are bogus.

Hoover spirit 900 canister wont turn on?


see this causes and fix it. God bless you
If the vacuum cleaner motor does not run the motor itself might be burned out. Check the power switch first to be sure the motor can get power. Then, be sure the motor shaft can turn freely, that nothing is obstructing it. If the motor can turn freely and is getting power but still won't run it will need to be replaced
If the vacuum cleaner motor doesn't run the on - off switch might be turned off or defective. Test the switch with an Ohm meter or continuity checker.

The pump motor hums but wont start


unplug machine and see if you can turn the brush in the head. if the brush can be turned then the motor is probably burnt out. if the head is hard to move then there is something stuck in there preventing the motor to turn. there is usually a belt from the head to the motor.

hope this helps

Brushes are not rotating is there a belt


I had the same problem, on mine there is no belt, the brushes are driven by an air motor. My problem turned out to be one of the motor brushes was completely worn out and the motor was not turning at the proper speed.

Power head for Kenmore Canister Vac


Another potential problem for the increase in difficulty in turning the beater bar (drum) could stem from extremely dirty bearings, located at each end of the beater bar. I've seen hair knotted up to the point it chokes the bar and significantly reduces its ability tpo turn.
