Question about Vacuums
Generic problem for all Vacuums
I have a central vac.
Posted by bmiller874 on July 22, 2008
I have a central vac. and the beater bar, for the carpet is not turning. The vacuum still sucks but the beater bar doesn't turn. I checked the belt it is fine.
I would advise you to ALWAYS to FIRST UNPLUG YOUR VACUUM before beginning any service procedure. Even though the belt looks fine it does stretch out and then it will not spin the brushroll @ the speed it is supposed to spin, there are 2 or 3 things to check. #1. The brushroll has be turning or spinning freely without the belt being on the unit. #2. The motor pulley has to be spinning freely as well #3. The belt needs to be changed every 4 to 6 months for the best cleaning and to store the extras belts in a Ziploc bag in the refrigerator. 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. I am not sure what the brand name of the central vac is, and maybe next time you can include the brand name and model #.
Thanks, Don the Vac Man

The belt may look fine, however, if the roller brush is not spinning then the belt has stretched and is no longer providing enough tension. The only solution is to change the vacuum belt. You can find any vacuum belt you need at www.vacbelts.com and shipping is only $1.99.
