Your bump sensors are malfunctioning... I had the same problem. The best thing to do is order a repair kit. I ordered mine from EESolutions.ca and it worked great.

The little brush on the front right stopped spinning around. there is nothing wrapped around it - it's clean so I don't know why it stopped working.


Not knowing what vacuum you are using, the most common reason the brush roll doesn't turn is because the belt has lost elasticity. Try replacing the belt.

Why does my Roomba 620 keep stopping when it comes to an object


Does it stop or does it stop and turn to go around the object? I would clean off the sensor. I know mine gets dusty.

I say this to everyone, you must clean out any vacuum, especially the Roomba often. My Roomba gets hair and thread wrapped around every moving part. Turn it on it's back, open the two catches on the right and left. Remove the two spinning bars. get all the hair out of every place you see it, yes even wrapped into the "axles" on each end. Also the ball white/black wheel at the front has to be pried out and the hair removed from this axle. Otherwise it can't turn as easily.

EL8505 brush will spin at only certain handle positions. The brush is unhindered and the belt is in position and in good order. The vacuum feels like it is sufficient. When the brush is not spinning the...


Many vacuums have a switch positioned somewhere by the pivot point that is pressed when the catch is released and the handle taken out of the 90 degree storage position. I haven't worked on an EL8505 but I have fixed a couple other brand / model vacuums that were behaving the same way you describe in your problem. In most cases it is either a perfectly good switch that had moved out of position because the framing it is supposed to sit in is broke or worn down or a bad switch that only works when the plunger was in just the right spot.
The link is a parts blowup of your vacuum and I think A-26 is the part you need. It appears to have both the bracket and the switch in one part. Make sure where it mounts doesn't have any damage preventing it from staying in the right place and alignment.

Brush does not spin all the time


HighnTools posted this solution a while ago. This might be related to your problem:
I have finally fixed my sister's dyson dc 15 beater bar problem. It was just 2 tiny broken wires connect to circuit board lead to the beater bar. The wires broke where they go through the black rubber gommet. You need a torx screwdriver tx 15 to remove 2 plastic covers to access the wires. When looking at the front of the vacuum, the gray covers located on the right side of the vacuum. 1 big cover with a black rubber gasket and other small gray cover is on the rotating ball area.

The above was from HighnTools.

Eats belts immediately


HI There,

Usually when the belt breaks immediately, this indicates that your roller brush has gone bad and needs to be replaced. I have never seen the motor shaft being damaged and causing belts to break before. When the roller brush can't spin because it's bearings have worn out, the motor shaft continues to try and turn the belt, but since the belt can't spin the motor shaft at that point burns right through the belt.

To make sure that it's your roller brush, remove the brush from the vacuum cleaner, and hold it using just your two pointer finger tips, holding just the bearings caps at the end of the bar, and not the bar itself.

Try to spin the brush using your thumbs. Does the brush spin freely without resistance? It should spin completely around 3-4 times on each spin. If it doesn't spin, then your bar is bad.

If the brush doesn spin, and it continues to break belts, this means that the belt is being installed incorrectly, and is being pinched by the roller brush. Pull the belt forwards after installing to make sure the brush spins freely.

Hope this helped you,

Brushes wont spin ,even though the belt is intact


The belt can develop a worn spot. It will be intact but not spin. Replace the belt and make and remove any hair or other garbage from around the ends of the brush bar.

In Carpet setting, the vacuum brush does not spin


I put 3 turns of electrical tape around the area of the beater bar that meets the vacuum belt. This solved the problem short of replacing the beater bar.

Make sure you REALLY pull the lever controlling the brush spin all the way up. On mine I REALLY need to force it to the top. If I don't use enough force and it's just a tiny bit below the top, the brushes continue spinning. I wish it was easier to flip from one mode to the other but mine has always been "stiff". Hope this helps. It took me a while to figure it out. Once you get the hang of using it, it works GREAT!
