Agitator brush wont spin once vacuum is placed on...
Posted by coral7980 on May 05, 2008
This vacuum has given me nothing but problems!!! The newest problem is the brush. I have changed the belt several times, it is a new one now. The brush spins, but as soon as you set the machine in place to start cleaning, it stops and burns up the belt. I need help. I don't want to buy another vacuum!!!
I would advise you to ALWAYS to FIRST UNPLUG YOUR VACUUM before beginning any service procedure.
The problem that I can see id that you may have a bad brushroll that doesn’t spin freely, and has either bushings or bearings, a simple test is that take the brushroll out of the vacuum, set in on end and spin the brush, does it spin freely or does it stop, the next thing is to turn the motor pulley on the motor, it should spin freely as well, if either one is not spinning freely or easy then there is your problem, or make sure you have the correct belt size and that is a genuine eureka belt instead of a replacement belt for that model, those are the 3 things that should work for you, if the vacuum is less than a year old – take it to a factory authorized vac dealer and if it is the motor and pulley, it is covered, usually the belt and the brushroll are wear items and are NOT covered, some places however might cover the brushroll as a courtesy to the customer. So feel free to contact your local vac dealer. So if you need further assistance, please feel free to contact your local vacuum cleaner dealer in your area or in the yellow pages, or contact the factory phone number or website to further assist you with your questions.

You probably just have a broken belt. The belt needs to be changed about every 6 months regardless. I believe yours takes a style EXT U(Extended life upright), or a regular Eureka "U" belt works fine too.

This unit need disassembly and internal cleansing. Yep, it's dirty inside. The motor probably is dirty also and should be blown out with an air compressor.

Check to see if bag (or if not bag then chamber is full).
Check to see if filter is clean.
If your vacuum has a bag, check to see that it is properly mounted.
Sorry I couldn't be more specific but it would help if you would specify what type of vacuum you have, whether you are using the hose or just the floor part, and where it is spitting the dirt from.
Hope this helps. If not, let me know the answer to the above questions and we'll go from there. Good luck!
