Very strong chance the end caps, made out of rubber could be a manufacturer defect. Many parts on vacs are made by different sources.

Why doesn't the brush roller rotate?


Hi, this is Jim with Crucial Vacuum,

The belt may not be broken, but it may be lacking in tension and therefore unable to rotate the brush roll on its own. You're going to want to replace your vacuums belt every 3 to 6 months depending on usage. Check to see if the belt is loose, or over stretched.

Check the brush roll as well and be sure its securely locked into place. It could be slightly loose causing a lack of communication between itself and the belt. Our video can help with fitting the belt in properly with the brush roll:

Why wont brushes rotate


Hi, it's Allie from Crucial Vacuum!

There are several things that may affect the performance of your unit and cause this to happen. The roller brush may stop working properly because of the belts, the roller brush or the filters in your unit.

Belt are recommended to be changed every 3 months, not replacing the belts can cause them to stretch out and the roller brush won't work properly. If the belts are in optimal conditions and do not need to be replaced, this may have been caused by your unit's rollerbrush.

Roller brushes can be cleaned and maintained to avoid frequent replacement. Make sure that there are no hair strands or debris tangled up in the brush roll's bristles, this may cause the roller to not work. Monthly care of your brush roller will help to keep you vacuum working properly.

Last, make sure to check your filters, if the filters have not been washed (if washable) or have not been replaced, it can affect the suction and performance of your unit.

Brush won't spin on hoover wind tunnel bag less upright when on carpet, belts are fine


The belts may look fine but may be stretched and worn. Replace them. Make sure brush spins free. Idler pulley should tighten belt tension when handle is released

My Hoover makes louder noise when the brushroll is on. I just cleaned but no result.


What kind of Hoover is this? There are a few things that will cause excessive noise and vibration such as a worn belt, the wrong belt, damaged end caps, damaged brush roll housing and worn bearings. Inspect the brush roll area. Remove the belt, if you have a spare, check the size. If it's more than 6 months old, replace the belt. Spin the brush roll in the housing, does it spin free or hesitate or not turn at all? If it spins with effort there could be debris under the end caps; if one end cap will not turn there is enough debris to cause the end cap to internally melt to the roller. If you cannot turn the brush roll by hand, replacement is your best solution. You should also inspect the housing where the roller spins, specifically where the end caps sit; look for damage to the slots in the plastic, it the roller will not sit snug this could cause enough vibration to make the sound you're hearing.

Is there a manual for installing new drive belts on my LG Kompressor - we've had it for less than a month and the belt broke. I ordered 2 replacement belts and the new one doesn't work and the brush won't...


You've probably figured this out, but my luv200R had the same problem. The belt broke, I changed it and it still didn't spin the brushes. Turned out, the roller has bearings on either end and one of the bearings was bad and wasn't letting roller roll. So the pulley would spin against the belt and heat up and break it again. I took the bad roller to Sears where they had a new one sent to my house free of charge since it was less than a year old.

Dyson DC4 Brush will not spin - have checked belt - this is ok


The bearings on your brush have gone bad. Buy a new roller brush and replace the belt as well, even if the old one seems o.k. Most people don't realize that roller brushes have bearings in the ends that allow them to turn quickly and smoothly. If you get hair wrapped around the roller brush, this will kill the bearings.

Changing belt on Kirby Classic 1972


When you turned the knob, did it turn easily or hard. If it was easy, then the knob part inside did not catch the belt. If it did turn hard, when you had the brush roll off, did you check the ends to see if they turned easily or not. if not, then replace the brush roll.
