    The brushes worked both times I cleaned the carpets. I turned the brushes off when I cleaned the car seats. When I tried to use the cleaner months later to clean the carpets I turned on the brushes but they would not turn. I have cleaned the filter every time I used the machine.

Remove the brush block, turn the unit on its side and watch the square hole to see if it rotates. If not, then the turbine(#23) isn't working, if it is, then is the shaft on top of the brush block broke off, if it is, replace the brush block.

I had the same problem on two different models with the spin brush system,,,and on both it was a steel bearing inside the spin brush motor that had got rusty from mouisture and froze up...bad idea to put steel parts with a plastic setup in a carpet cleaner...I ordered the sealed bearing from Grainger for 5 buck a piece.

Its not turning brushes all the time & it has very little to no suction on floor or hand tool modes


HI, it's Jim from Crucial Vacuum!

If your vacuum is experiencing difficulties with suction there are several places you can check to help your vacuum operate at its peak performance. After applying these solutions you should see an improvement in your vacuums suction and the maneuverability of the brush roll.

Lets check out your brush roll first since that's experiencing issues with turning. Look for any noticeable debris, and be sure to manually rotate the brush roll to unearth any hidden clogs that may be behind your brush roll. If you see carpet fibers, or strands of hair remove these with a razor, or scissor.

How do the bristles look on the brush roll? If they're loose, or look worn down then it may be time to replace the brush entirely.

Is the belt intact? After usage the belt will stretch out and lessen the tension on the brush roll. This could be causing the brush roll to have a lack of resistance against it. You want to be sure the belt is on there nice and tight. If your brush roll isn't operating properly it won't be able to pick up dirt and debris.

Be sure to empty your unit's dust cup. Allowing for fine dust and debris to rest in your unit's dust cup for a long period may cause your unit to become clogged, which leads to poor or even no suction for your vacuum.

If you're also getting little to no suction from your vacuums hose and attachments then check your vacuums hose for a clog. Stretch it out as far as you can to unblock any clogs. If there is a clog in a hard to reach spot try using a broom handle to reach the area.

It is recommended to wash and clean your unit's filter weekly. To do so, empty your filter screen outdoors to take off any excess debris and then clean under running water until the water comes out clean. Allow the filter screen to fully dry before inserting it back into the unit. This may take up to several hours.

I have a cannister vacume, Fuller Brush red model # FB-DCC when I turn it on it will shut itself off in about 30 seconds this will happen several times then it will not turn on. I do not have the owners...


First, the word is "VACUUM." Second, it's obvoius that your motor is overheating. When's the last time you CLEANED THE FILTERS, per the operating instructions?

Ive changed the filter and checked the hoses but vacuum doesnt pick up ...when its on the dust is being blown out the bottom of the vacuum....i took the canister off to test the suction its fine...also...


have you check the roller brush and drive belt? It may be your belt has broke or is slipping and therefore not turning the brush.
Turn on machine and power head see if brush is turning if it is put a small amount of pressure on the roller. If it stops turning replace the belt

Brushes wont turn on shampooer


Dear Momneville
I have the same steamcleaner and had the same problem, I took mine apart a found a clog between the turbine and the wheel that the turbine moves by vacuum when it gets glogged there is no vacuum to move the wheel. If you are not mechanically inclined in suggest you do not take it apart unless you think you can get it back together properly.

Hope this helps

"Please clean Roombas brushes"


Same thing happened to me. After "cleaning" the brushes and emptying the filter several times, I realized that the brushes were not properly secured. One of the yellow fasteners needed to be pushed closer to the middle nearer to the brushes. It was not secured properly. When I did this it fixed my problem.

Brush bar wont turn, Bissell smells like burning rubber


The belt just goes from the motor shaft to the brush roll. Do the ends of the brush trun freely, or is one of them froze up, if so replace the brush roll. If it is ok, try to turn the brush roll by hand, maybe the belt got pinched and won't move.
