SOURCE: Wheels stop turning

Model number would help. If this one has a V belt and a flat belt, then the flat belt is broke, or come offthe motor pully, or is stretched enough that it won't drive the wheels. Which is #12 on the pic. part #38528035, the V belt part #38528034.

SOURCE: hair on top of washable filter on d14 animal

One way or another, dirty air is by-passing the cyclone. Check that all the seals are undamaged and in place, especially the big black ring at the bottom of the yellow bit inside the clear bin.  Also check that the bin base closes tight after you've emptied it.
If this doesn't help, please post a response and I'll try again.  If it does help, please remember to rate me!

SOURCE: Dyson making loud noise

If your brushroller isn't spinning it will make the loud sound. Try removing the brushroll and reinstalling it. If this doesn't work, you may need a new brushroller.You can find one here...

Vacuum squeaking loudly!!!Help!!!!


Most likely has a bunch of hair wrapped around the beater bar. Get some scissors, razor knife and some needle nose pliers. Turn the bottom up and remove the cover and start digging the hair out. You may need a new drive belt too.

I have a Lindhaus powerhead MOD.PB12e SN123463. The powerhead turns on and the roller starts turning but after a couple of seconds it starts sounding like something is not letting the roller turn properly...


A common problem is for hair to get wrapped around and forced into the end bearings which causes the motor to work harder or drive belt to slip. Cleaning the hair out can be a short term fix but new bearings might be needed. It's also a good idea to replace the drive belt at the same time as the slipping belt is probably not going to perform well even with new bearings.

Why does my Roomba 620 keep stopping when it comes to an object


Does it stop or does it stop and turn to go around the object? I would clean off the sensor. I know mine gets dusty.

I say this to everyone, you must clean out any vacuum, especially the Roomba often. My Roomba gets hair and thread wrapped around every moving part. Turn it on it's back, open the two catches on the right and left. Remove the two spinning bars. get all the hair out of every place you see it, yes even wrapped into the "axles" on each end. Also the ball white/black wheel at the front has to be pried out and the hair removed from this axle. Otherwise it can't turn as easily.

How to clean the rotary brushes on the bottom of the vacuum


Just use a razor knife to cut through the hair, string, etc. that may be wrapped around the brush. It is easier if you take the brush out of the vacuum and that will also let you examine the bearings at each end to see is they need to be cleaned as well.

Brushes will not rotate


I can't tell for sure from the pictures, but there are two possibilities - the drive belt to the brushes broke, or the brush can't turn due to excessive hair wrapped around the shaft. If the belt is OK but the brush does not turn, you should smell burning rubber.

If the belt is broken, you have to remove the bottom plate to expose the brush, remove the brush and the broken belt, and replace the belt, and put it back to gether. While you have the brush out, now would be a good time to clean it - remove the hair, etc from the brush and around the shaft. Good Luck!

My floormate is not suctioning very well. Tech support told me to take out the brushes and put them back in and this helped for a little bit then it went back to not suctioning. deb


When you took the brushes out, was there hair wrapped around them? Sometimes they just need to be cleaned off. When you take them off, there is a belt they connect to that also goes around a gear -- make sure the belt and gear don't have hair wrapped around them either.

Hope that helps!

Hot Smell when I run it


Check to make sure there is no hair on the ends of the axel. Hair will sometimes wrap up around the axel and make it hard to turn. Cut off with razor and place a drop of oil on the ends.

Roomba brushes won't spin


I had this problem with my Roomba Discovery. I ran across your question while searching for an answer. My main symptoms were, Roomba hesitated a lot, and the dust bin did not fill. I had plenty of hair wrapped around the brushes and against the filter.
I just finished taking my Roomba apart. I found the motor drive shaft had a LOT of hair wrapped around it and it had climkbed into my gearbox. I took that apart and cleaned all the hair out of the gearbox. My Roomba is back to normal now, filling the dust bin.
