Hello
Either the on off switch is bad or become loose.
Or the motor itsself is not getting voltage or may be burned up.

    Ok.Are thebearings in the brush itself rolling or does the belt spin around the brush.

    If the belt spins around the brush you will need a new brush

    Sounds like a bad motor or possibly drive on motor for the belt.I dont know how involved you wan to get but a new motor is proably as much as a new vacum.

How can I stop the squealing noise in the motor on my Sanitaire wide track commercial vacuum? It's making a squealing the minute I turn it on


Is it the motor or the brush roll? Remove the brush roll and belt and see if it still squeals. If not clean or replace the brush roll and get a new belt. Inspect the fan to insure there is not something stuck in it. If it's the motor you can try to clean it, make sure there is not something stuck in the motor causing the noise.

Inspect the brush.
Turn on the vacuum, CAREFULLY pivot the machine so the front goes up and the rear wheels stay on the ground. Is the brush rotating.
If not, inspect the belt after turning the vacuum off and unplugging.
It they are rotating, inspect the brush with the machine off and unplugged. Are there high & low spots?

When I turn my Dyson ball DC25 vacuum on and engage the brush it makes a screeching noise. I have cleaned the brush and the filters were cleaned a week ago and are in correctly.


Check if the belt still is connected and freely rotating the brush. Dyson vacuum belts are not replaceable.If the belt is going bad, the clutch assembly has to be replaced

Our brush doesn't rotate anymore on our U5402-900 vacuum cleaner. What are common causes of this?


The number one cause of brushes not rotating is a broken belt. If you remove the four screws holding the bottom plate, you'll see a short, wide rubber belt that goes around the roller.

If this is broken, it's easy to replace. They do break because of age and wear. One of the leading causes of breakage is when the roller gets something - a curtain cord, for example - wrapped around it. If you don't immediately shut off the vacuum & remove the cord, the belt will continue to try to turn the roller (which can't turn), and this generates a lot of heat in just a few seconds.

The number two cause of brushes not rotating is, as suggested above, something jammed & wound around the roller. It's always a good idea to turn the vacuum over periodically and clean the roller... including using scissors or a knife to snip & remove wound hairs & threads. A clean and healthy roller will help to keep your belt happy!

Vacuum turns on but the brush is not rotating


Most likely a problem with the drive belt or the beater brush. Either the drive belt is broken or the beater brush is frozen due to debris. If you can not turn the beater brush by hand, it should be removed and cleaned well. The ends of the beater brush that hold it into the vacuum should be lubricated with some WD40 and moved by hand until they are free. Once the turn freely, replace the beater brush. If the drive belt is broken or missing, it needs to be replaced.

You get to the belt & brush roll area from the top. On the hood of the vacuum, right behind the word Altima, to the right & left sides, you will see a screw. Remove them, lift off plastic hood. Check belt if broken or just stretched too big to catch brush to turn it. Check ends of brushroll for any hair, thread buildup & clean it. See if end caps turn easily. If one or both ends do not turn easily, the brush roll would need to be replaced.

Eureka Altima Bagless Upright Brush is not spinning


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.

The top comes off to get to the belt and brush roll. Did you check the brush roll to make sure that the ends turn freely, or is one not turning, the belt is a lon life "U" part #61120A. The brush roll is what drives the vacuum, but if brush roll or belt is bad, then it won't drive it.
