    I have the same problem, and the customer service response is very slow. The email tells you to call Halo, and you get a recorded message telling you it will be 48 hours plus to get a return call. If you miss that call, you start all over.

    Same problem - has anyone figured out how to fix it?

  • stacysweet Dec 15, 2008

    It seems like most people I have talked to that have a Halo are having the same problem - the beater bar stops turning. I had my Halo for just a month before it stopped working. Granted- I have an Eskimo dog, so shedding is just at warp speed, but even using it almost every day for a month should not wear out the simple components! I can't be the only person in the world who vacuums every day.

    I have the same problem...any solutions??

  • Anonymous May 08, 2009

    Same problem. I have opened it up and the belt has fallen of the puller. Unfortunately puller is not alined anymore, sticks out way furhter than it was intended. The belt keeps falling after a few rotations after I put it back in proper place. Puller comes straight from the engine and  there is nothing seemingly I can do to push it back in.

Electrolux Z61a brush not rotating


There should be a rubber belt somewhere along that roller, probably in the middle, behind the bottom cover plate, Remove the plate. That belt may have just slipped off the motor shaft, but it may be broken.

The belt could possibly be installed in either of two ways. The motor shaft is not parallel to the beater bar (brushes), so the belt must twist to wrap around both the motor shaft and the beater bar. If it's twisted one direction, the beater bar will rotate the correct direction (as if drying to pull the vacuum forward). Twisted the wrong way, it'll rotate the opposite direction. Try it one way, then bump the power switch to verify that the brush is rotating the correct direction before putting the bottom cover plate back on.

My dyson dc17 amimal's main turbine head is not working, is there a reset button or any other solution? I don't think it is the belt!


Right next to the power switch is a switch that will turn on/off the beater brush. Push firmly on this button and see if that turns it back on. It will turn itself off if it has too much resistance on it from getting tangled in something like a long carpet fiber that wraps itself around the beater brush. Check and make sure it's not bound up by something and then press the on/off button for the beater brush.

I need to replace the belt on my hoover fusion plus upright vac. But I cannot find what belt it takes. the number on the belt is worn off


Hello :
1:Unplug your Hoover vacuum. Turn the vacuum up-side-down and place the motor and vacuum portion on a counter top with the handle hanging down toward the floor. This makes it easy to work on the underside of the vacuum portion of the machine.
2:Locate the two plastic release levers near the front wheels of the vacuum. On most machines you will only need to push these levers outward with your thumbs to release the bottom panel of the vacuum. On certain older models, there are two screws that will need to be removed with a screwdriver. Once released, remove the bottom plate.
3:Locate the drive belt. Unless the belt is broken completely, it will be plainly visible. One end of the belt loops around the shaft of the vacuum's motor and the other end wraps around the vacuum's beater bar. The belt is in a modified figure 8. Use your fingers to stretch the belt slightly and remove it from the small shaft of the motor which will be almost dead center under the vacuum.
4:Remove the roller (the beater bar) that is across the front edge of the vacuum. In most models you can remove the bar by simply pushing it forward slightly and then lifting it up out of the U groove that it is held in. In some models you may need to use your screwdriver to push aside two clips that hold the bar in place.
5:Remove the belt (if attached) from the bar and then clean the bar. The bar may have hair and bits of carpet wrapped tightly around it, especially at the ends where the accumulated mess could prevent the bar from spinning freely. Use scissors or a utility knife to carefully clean off all hair and other debris. Make certain that the roller rolls smoothly and easily.
6:Place the new belt around the roller, fitting it into the groove in the middle of the bar. Replace the bar in the machine. In most models, the bar should simply drop down into the U grooves that hold it. Give the belt half a twist (like the figure 8) and then loop the free end around the shaft of the motor.
7:Replace the bottom of the vacuum and push the retaining tabs back in place with your thumbs or screw in the two screws that hold the bottom on. Turn the machine over, plug it in, and it should be working like new.
Things You'll Need: Replacement belt Screwdriver (for some models) Scissors Utility knife
Warning:
1:If your machine makes a screeching noise when you turn it on, then turn it off and unplug it immediately. Turn it over and check to see that the bar is seated properly before turning it back on again.
2:Never work on your vacuum if it is plugged in.

Brush won't turn.


Hi, W/D here.

You'll need to remove the base plate around the beater bar, and remove any hair that is around the ends of the beater bar. It tends to collect there, along with bits of string, ribbon, and such. When you're removing the hair, be aware of how the beater bar fits in the sockets that hold it in the vacuum frame; you have to replace them in the right way or the beater bar will rub.

Best regards, --W/D--

Beater Bar Does not turn


YOU MAY HAVE A POSSIBLE BAD BELT OR THE MOTOR THAT RUNS THE BAR MAY BE BAD, THE OTHER POSSIBILITY IS THE SWITCH THAT TURNS ON THE BAR MAY BE BAD. OR A WIRE COULD HAVE COME OFF THE MOTOR. i THINK YOU DO KNOW THAT THE BEATER BAR DOES NOT RUN WHEN ON WOOD FLOORS.
