F7441-980 brushes won't turn


Paul:

Turn the vacuum over and remove the foot plate. Check the belt and manually try to turn the brushes. If the belt is OK, the brushes need to be removed and the roller bearings at the end of the brushes cleaned (hair, fibers, dust,) I remove the roller bearings and shoot them with alcohol while turning them until they turn free, then blow the alcohol out and lube them with one drop of light machine oil.

Brush bar is not spinning


Common causes of brush roller failure are belt breakage and clogging. If this is a Dyson animal vacuum, you may find the brush roller is so clogged with hair that it cannot rotate. The solution is to remove the brush roller and clean it thoroughly, particularly inside the end caps where hair accumulates. It is unlikely that an entire animal was ingested.

After turning on power , brush roller freezes and indicator light turns red


try turning the roller by hand UNPLUG VACUUM FIRST
it should turn very easy, otherwise it is binding
all uprights have this problem eventually
hair and fibers get in roller bushing and seize
luckily disassembling is relatively easy, same procedure as replacing the small belt that drives the roller. Take the extra step and take out the roller slip off bushings and clean everything
have fun

The main roller will not work


Check for a broken belt that drives the roller. Remove the roller brush and clean as best you can. Add some WD40 at both ends of the roller brush between the brush and the pieces that hold the brush in place. Turn by hand to be sure the brush moves freely. Reassemble making sure the belt is on properly.

The vacuum is making a noise like something is stuck when it is in the carpet position but not when in the floor position. I can't find anything that is stuck in the areas that I can see. I have cleaned...


As far as the roller brush goes, yes, it does need to be cleaned. Follow the directions to remove it and clean as best you can of all debris. On both ends of the roller brush there will be two "holders" of sort that connect the brush to the frame of the vacuum. These need to be able to turn freely around the brush. Clean them as best you can and spray some WD40 in between the roller and both the holders. Work the holders around by hand to be sure they move freely. I would also check to see if your belts are snug.
Please let me know if this does not help solve your problems. Paul

Roller brush on Kenmore model: 116.31199100 won't turn


Refer to Larryclare1's solution at http://www.fixya.com/support/t1095798-kenmore_model_116_powermate_jr_stopped It worked great for me. Replace the belt, which you can get at Sears Parts store/online and clean out the hair as per Larryclare's instructions.

The roller brush will not turn. The belt is not


Hello,

Sometimes the belt can stretch cause the roller to not turn. Also make sure the roller brush is free of any debris.

Use this link to access your vacuum to change belt or clean the roller brush.

It makes a very loud noise and doesnt pick up much


When they make noise like that there is usually an issue with the drive system (the belt and roller brush). I would try cleaning off the roller brush and putting a new belt on. You can access the roller brush and belt by turning the vacuum over so the brush faces up. There is a cover plate over the roller brush which can be removed by removing the (4) phillips screws. with the cover plate off, you can remove the brush and old belt. clean the brush off really good and put it back with a new belt. This is normal maintenence for this model and should be done every 6 months.
You can get the replacement belt here:

My vacuum has good suction but i can hardly push it across my carpet. any answers????


is your brush roller turning,that would cause it to be hard to push .the brush roller helps it walk across the floor.if your brush roller isn't turning then your belt is broke or the brush itself siezed up.unplug the vacuum and try to turn the brush roller .if it turns real free then your belt is broke.before you replace the belt always clean the motor shaft ,the old rubber from the old belt melts onto the motor shaft .if you don't clean it your new belt won't last very long.please leave feedback
