How do I know which way round the carpet control works on power vx pet


I don't have one of these but normally the hard floor surface will have a brush around an edge or all the way around in contact with the floor, and for carpet you will just have the normal rotating brush. The rotating brush is always there.

Brush stopped spinning


probably 99% of the time its the belt that turns the brushes and/or the bearings on the roller brush itself have tightened up either due to being clogged or plain just worn out...pretty sure its the rubber belt though...

No suction through main part but working ok throgh hose


Check for a clog in the power head where the intake is. It could be just behind the brush, or by detaching the hose from the powerhead, in that area. It's fairly a common problem since the opening is a bit small.
Remove the clog and suction returns.

The brush is clean and spinning but it isnt picking up anything and just pushing pet hair around.


You mentioned pet hair. Remove the brush cover and check for a plug (possibly pet hair). Sounds as though you have a plug somewhere and it's not allow the suction to pull it through. Also check your filter and clean or replace as necessary. Hint; Never let you container get over half full, it reduces the suction.

Brush will not spin. filters are clean, no clogs, belt is fine. remove canister, it works fine plenty of suction.


Probably a good idea to remove the brush and clean as best you can. Add some WD40 at each end by the plastic clips and turn by hand until they move freely. Reassemble being sure the belt is on properly.
