If you have a belt on this, then I would change it. If you have the type that works with suction and doesn't have a belt, then I would pull the brush out and clean out all the hair and carpet chunks that get built up on the ends of the roller brush.

Spinbrush not working on eureka as1104


If the belt is intact, the brush roller ends may be so jammed (usually with hair) that it cannot rotate. Also, if the brush roller cannot rotate, the motor shaft may be rotating in one spot on the belt and eventually will burn it out. The solution in the case of the brush roller is to remove it and check for free rotation. If the ends are binding, the brush roller will have to be disassembled to remove debris.

My brush is not rotating


Hi there, it's Jack at Dyson.

I'm sorry to hear your DC33's brush bar is not rotating. This is likely to be because the brush control on the cleaner head has accidentally set to 'Hard floors'. In this mode, the brush bar will not rotate. Please recline your machine into the vacuuming position, turn it on, and make sure the brush control is set to 'Carpets'.

I'm confident this will resolve the issue, as using and replacing the wand will not have any effect on the function of the brush bar. It's also important to note that the brush bar will never rotate when the machine is standing upright.

If you would like further assistance after you've checked the brush control is correctly positioned, please get in touch with us directly. You can reach us on 0800 298 0298 (UK), 1-866-693-9766 (US), or 1-877-397-6622 (CA).

Best wishes,

Jack

Spot bot leaking when using manual hose


This is an old post but I thought it might help anyone having this problem now to post the solution.
The internal water pump feeds two water delivery hoses on the Bissell Spot Bot. One goes to the spout located in the center of the rotating brushes.
The other feeds the spout located on the underside of the brush at the end of the hose.
There is a water shut off valve that is actuated when you pull the plastic tube at the end of the hose out of the plastic tube it is fitted into during storage.
When you pull the end of the hose out of this plastic fitting a button inside is no longer depressed and a valve shuts of the water flow to the rotating brushes. If this valve is clogged with gunk it will not release when the hose end is pulled out and water will still come out of the rotating brushes even in manual mode.
This is a mechanical fault not an electronic fault.
To resolve the issue you can mix a solution of vinegar and hot water and fill the water tank with it.
Put the rotating brushes over the sink. Remove the hose and fit the scrub brush to the end.
Start the machine in manual mode. The sink will catch the water coming from the rotating brushes area.
Now point the hose end at the sink to catch the water and pull the water release trigger. While holding the trigger press and release the black button inside the tube that holds the hose end during storage. This moves the internal workings of the valve.
Do this till all the water is gone.
At some point during this procedure you will notice that when you release the black button the water will stop coming from the rotating brushes.
You problem is now solved.
If this does not work after two tanks of hot water and vinegar then the valve would need to be removed and soaked in a solution or replaced.
This is a much more complex procedure that requires disassembly.
Maybe a youtube video is in order.

If your lucky the procedure above will solve the problem.

Carpet brush not rotating


Did you check the drive belt for the roller? If not do so, the smell was the belt drive burning up.

Need to replace belt and cannot figure how to take it apart to get at the belt --- Took Screws off on the bottom but could not get to the belt


You have already removed the screws so lift the brush cover off. Then grasp rotating floor brush at both ends and lift. Clean strings,hair and other debris from rotating brush, paying close attention to the brush ends. Clean the debris from motor pulley and drive belt areas.Grasp old drive belt and remove from motor pulley. Place new drive belt over motor pulley and stretch other end over rotating floor brush in the space between the bristles. Place the ends of the rotating floor brush down into slots on the sides. Turn the rotating floor brush by hand several times in the direction of motor pulley. If installed properly, drive belt will center itself on rotating brush. Reposition brush cover and screw back into place. I hope that this helps you!

THis is not a self-propelled vacuum. The problem is that the brushes are no longer rotating on their own. They only 'brush and lift carpet' when I pull backward. I have ahd the vacuum for about 1 year. ...


Sounds like you need to take the brushes off the unit and clean the end pieces that the brushes rotate around. Not uncommon that they get dirty and stop rotating. Clean all debris and add a little WD40 on the end of the bush rods that the brush spins around. Make sure the belt is on properly.
