The power head usually has a reset button on it look for one and push it. If there isn't one, turn over the power head and then turn on the machine to see if the roller bar is spinning. If it is you can put your foot (with shoe on )against it gently and if it stops easily it needs a belt and if it isn't spinning at all it is in need of a replacement. Also be sure to check the electrical connections that go from the head up the hose and to the unit. This is where the unit gets its power for the power-head.Good luck!

Hi poohbear4760...
Check your wiring going to the vacuum head, some vacuums have a problem with corrosion on the plugs...take your connections loose and lightly sand with fine grit sandpaper the metal ends.
Plug the wires back together and see if it works...if not then it may be that you have a faulty motor in the drive head.

Dc 24 roller brush quit working....belt is okay & there are no obstructions on roller or in head compartment & suction at head is strong


Hi there, sometimes a stretched belt will hamper the vac. from picking up. he best way to test this is to turn the machine on, then carefully put you hand on the roller. If the belt is stretched the roller will stop turning when you apply pressure. Hope this helps, Chris

The power head just stopped working last night and I can't get it to work on the carpet. What could be the problem?


Did you try setting the power reset button on top? Mine wasn't picking up dirt very well so i took it apart thing the belt was slipping it wasn't. The nozzle was clogged up at the head. i pulled out all this cat hair to see one of the cat toys was lodged in. i used pliers to pull it out. if you have power and the brush is turning you might try checking that to make sure it's clear.

take the vacuum head off the end of the tube , turn the machine and place your hand over the end of the tube
if it sucks your hand onto the tube , the machine is working as a vacuum machine
then check fro a blockage in the elbow section near the head
if there is no vacuum , junk it and get a new one

The head on my Hoover Canister vacuum has stopped working


It sounds like the power connection pins, from the handle tube to the powerhead, are not making connection. The pins could have been damaged when you impacted it.

Miele SEB-213 powerbrush stopped working


Pull the head cover off to check the belt, if the belt is ok then it might be the power connection between the handle and the power head shaft. If the red light is on the power head, then its not the connection
because its getting power. Now some heads have a reset button on them,you could check this also.
With the cover off the power head, remove the belt, now turn it on, and be careful, but try to make the motor shaft spin,with one finger, because if it does start to spin you do not want to hurt your finger.

If the motor starts to spin,put the belt back on, if it does not spin again, the motor is too weak.
If it does not spin at all, the motor is bad.Hope this helps you,and you get it working.

Kirby Sentria doesn't pick up visible dirt


As far as picking up - I suspect that your belt is not properly installed. Watch the video manual HERE. in the first halve of the video there is an instruction how to properly instal nozzle.

You have to turn the bag about 30-40 degrees countercloclwise so plastic protrusions on the tube top adater (ones that keep bag attached to the tube) will allign with cuts in bag cardbort so you can pull the bag off the adapter. If you will take a look at the new bag - you will see what I am talking about.
