I have model#UD40350 total pet compact. The lower vacuum brushes don.t turn.


Hi! It sounds like you have a broken or stretched belt. The belt controls the brush roll. If you are using the vacuum on carpet, you need the brushes to spin to agitate the carpet fibers. Below are step-by-step instructions on how to replace your belt. I have also included a link to the instruction manual if needed.

1. Lay cleaner flat and flip to expose nozzle base. To remove nozzle guard, use Phillips screwdriver to remove the screws.
2. Lift and remove brush roll and dispose of old belt if you see one.
3. Slide belt (style 19) onto motor shaft.
4. Place new belt on area of brush roll without bristles.
5. With new belt in place, pull and slide brush roll into nozzle making sure that the brush roll end caps are in the correct orientation.
6. Replace all screws to replace nozzle guard.

Vacuum wont spin when on carpet but will spin if tilted off the carpet


Remove the bottom plate of the sweeper. Remove the sweeper brush roller and clean the end bearings of debris. Oil the bearings lightly with 3-1 oil or similar machine oil. Clean the motor shaft with alcohol as well as the brush drive area, and the inside of the drive belt. Test on a carpet for improvement--if still stopping, replace the rubber drive belt. Hope this helps!

Belt tensioner overheated and doesn't keep belt tight enough


Looking at the owner manual, there is no tensioner assembly.
If the motor is fixed in place and not loose, then you either have the wrong belt, or the brush roller is not properly installed, or the brush roller is worn out where the belt goes around the brush roller.

Agitator stops when sweeper is pulled backward


If you have made no changes to the vacuum's setup and are using it on same carpet you have previously used it on with no problem, then the most likely cause is the agitator/beater bar's drive belt is worn or on some models may have a tension adjustment which is set too loosely. This can also be caused by having the vacuums height adjustment set to low for the carpet or flooring you are using it on, causing to much drag when the vacuum is pulled backwards for the agitator to overcome.

The vast majority of agitators turn in a forward direction, as if it would pull the vacuum forward, when you pull the vacuum backwards the drag is increased.

So...First check height adjustment (a no cost fix), then check out the tension adjustment (if present on you model, some engage when top of vacuum is tilted back after stepping on the release pedal) Lastly, consider changing belt especially if you have had the vacuum awhile or if it gets a fair amount of use or it you seem to need to use it on a low height setting all the time to vacuum up debris.

Hope this helps!
