hooked rugs produce the highest amount of friction opposing the brush rotation, which can over heat the drive motor. try using a height setting that raises the brush so that it barely touches the pile. If this issue has been going on for some time, you may need to replace the drive motor.

Hi, i have a panasonic eco max, the brush has stopped going round, the belt is as new and brushes clean.suction good from hose. Any ideas please? thank you


The brush on this model is controlled by the on/carpet/floor switch and will only work in the carpet position. If the suction motor is running then it could be the roller brush motor, but it's more likely to be the microswitch which stops the brush motor when the handle is returned to the upright position.

It's possible you simply need a new belt or roller brush. Place the power nozzle upside-down turn the vacuum on. Ensure the brush turns. If it doesn't, the belt has broken or is too worn to turn it. Replace the belt. Make sure the tension is properly set prior to reassembling the power nozzle.
Next, with the power nozzle upside down, run the flat of your palm across the brush area. If you can barely feel the bristles, it needs replaced. A good brush will loosen the yarn and strings, but needs to be cleaned periodically.
As long as the powerhead motor is running, there is no need to replace it. If it's not running, look for a reset button and press it. There could also be a broken wire, loose connection, or bad switch causing a power head motor to not operate..

The carpet sweeper on my electrolux stopped working....used it for a little bit and then it just stopped


Make sure the brush is cleared and clean, press the reset button, and try again.
If the motor runs, but the brush doesn't turn, it's likely due to a broken belt. Have it replaced by someone who knows what they're doing.
I strongly recommend taking it into an authorized shop.

Hi, try pushing the reset button with a pen or paper clip. If that doesn't work, the motor may need to replaced. If the reset button is stuck, if the reset button is stuck, use a pair of tweezers to pull it back out......

Secondly, your belt can also be broken or has come off the pulley. Remove the bottom plate and investigate.

Brushbar has stopped spinning on Carpets


Because the brush bar is electric, it automatically shuts off if you get something stuck in it to keep the motor from burning up. you have to remove the item and then push the small reset button on the side of the brush bar<!-- from fixya rte -->

My Sanitaire vacuum is not picking up well - works ok on floors but not on carpeting


Depending on the model you may have a single or two motor system. If it is not running well in carpet mode but still has suction check to see if the brush for the carpet head is turning. If not look for a red reset switch or spin the brush when the vac is shut off. It it spins freely the belt is either broken or badly stretched and needs replacement.

I cant get the power brush to work is there a reset button? the vacuum is only 2 months old dirt devil 12amp bagless featherlite


can you turn the brush by hand? if it turns real freely the belt is broke or the brush siezed up make sure there isn't any carpet strans wrapped around the ends of the brush otherwise the brush won't turn.if its the belt make sure you clean the motor shaft before you put on the new belt,the old rubber from the old belt will make the new belt run unevevly and break again..good luck
