Not sure if you are speaking of a vacuum or steam cleaner or ?
If it is a vacuum, sounds like the beater brush is freezing up. Follow the directions to replace the drive belt. When you get the beater brush off the unit, clean it as best you can. Add a bit of WD40 between the ends of the beater brush and the hard rubber pieces that hold it in place. Before reassembling, turn the brush while holding the pieces one at a time to be sure the beater brush turns freely. When you reassemble, be sure the belt is properly installed.
If you find this solution to be helpful, I would appreciate an appropriate Thumbs Up rating from you.
Be well, Paul

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 brush attachment always slows when it hits carpet. I've replaced belts and it just doesn't do what its supposed to. I doesn't seem to work very well. If the brush isn't moving how could it move the...


One thing you might want to try is to see if the brush itself is binding up at the ends. When dirt gets in the end pieces and makes the brush difficult to spin, it will slow down, add to that the contact with the carpet and it may slow down even more. Give the brush and axle a good cleaning to see if it works better. Add a bit of WD40 to the ends of the brush axle.

We have a Hoover Tempo, and the brush stopped moving around. How do you get the brush to move again?


The most probable problem is the belt that runs the brush broke. Purchase a new belt for that model and replace.

Brush will move when up but as soon as you put it on the floor it stops! this is for the Bissell Proheat turbo 2x


The brushes are vacuum powered, me thinkest. Check for pluggage (view window?) and that suction is not being diverted to the upholstery side.

New Roomba 560 beep twice, ask to clean brushes, but no dirt


your roomba is thinking that you need to clean the brushes. if too much load it put on your brush motor--the unit will think that something is wrapped around the brush and slowing down the motor. if you have cleaned your brush and are sure that is not the problem; you need to look for anything else that could be slowing down the brush/motor. If this is inconclusive you need to put your roomba into diagnostic mode by following the procedures in the link below http://swiftracer.com/index.php?myPage=RoombaDiagnosticMode.php

The problem is in the Roomba itself. It can't be fixed-- time to call support.
