Check the brush block to see if the shaft that goes into the turbine broke off, replace brush block if it did. If ok, then the turbine may be clogged up, either clean it out or replace the turbine.

Brushes not turning, 2 inch piec on one brush in place, the housing is spinning but not turning brushes


Hello there! It sounds like you may need to replace your brush block assembly. Try turning that drive shaft connected to the middle brush. All the brushes should be able to do a full turn simultaneously. If the brushes get stuck and cant make a full turn or if all of the brushes aren't spinning together then your brush block will need to be replaced. To purchase a replacement brush block simply follow the link below. Hope this was helpful!

F7441-980 brushes won't turn


Paul:

Turn the vacuum over and remove the foot plate. Check the belt and manually try to turn the brushes. If the belt is OK, the brushes need to be removed and the roller bearings at the end of the brushes cleaned (hair, fibers, dust,) I remove the roller bearings and shoot them with alcohol while turning them until they turn free, then blow the alcohol out and lube them with one drop of light machine oil.

Brushes will not turn


Look for something wedged between the belt and the turning components. The smallest thing can cause a lock down. Make sure hair is not wrapped around rollers causing it to tighten up at bearing sufaces.

6 rotating brushes


When you turn on the Vac with the brush strip NOT installed does the part that engages the brush strip turn at all? If so, when you install the brush strip see if the will turn when no pressure is applied to the brushes (tilt the Vac back). If none of this works, then the switch that engages the brushes when the unit is not fully upright may be broken. If the part that engages the brushes turns but won't turn when the brush strip is engaged then one of the parts that mate up it most likely stripped. Let us know what you discover!
