The brus motor has what appears to be a transmission on it.
If you have it apart apply power and make sure the shaft that fits brush is turning.
If the motor spins but the shaft does not you need to replace the motor asm
If the shaft spins the problem is with the brush or the way the shaft attaches to the brush

Why wont the roller brush turn on my navigator shark NV22L


It could be a bad switch or brush roll motor, a broken belt, loose wire or contact. You must inspect and test all these areas to narrow down the cause.

Brush wont move and its not the belt


If the belt is not broken, most likely the brush roller needs replacing. If the brush roller turns freely then it is likely the pulley on the motor that drives the belt.

Hoover linx cordless bh50010 brush roller not turning


Simple!
Pull brush assembly from the handle.
Remove brush and belt, unscrew ALL screws at the bottom, separate parts, and to your surprise, you will see broken wire leading to the motor. Bad workmanship during assembly leads this wire to be twisted and cut by the plastic parts allowing swiveling. Be prepared to have some hard time setting motor in its place.

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..

Dyson dc 15 brush roll not spinning. motor is good, upper switch is good.


Open the right side of the vacuum with a hex head screw driver. There are 4 screws. Inside you will find a circuit board.
1. Make sure the varistor (S20K150) is not blown, these models seem to have an issue with this. It is a flat blue "quarter" looking component near the top edge of the circuit board.
2. At the bottom of the circuit board are two white wires connected via push on connectors. Remove these from the circuit board by sliding them away from the circuit board. Power on the vacuum and engage the drive button. If the lower motor still does not engage check step 3.
3. A blue and yellow wire runs off the bottom end of the circuit board. These are the wires powering the lower motor. Check continuity with a multimeter and make sure they are not broken. I have seen where these wires will break as they run through the housing of the vacuum. If they are broken, replace them with any wire of the same gauge.

The brush does not spin when engaged. Everything else is working fine.


When you remove the brush, the release button resets a trip fuse on the pcb. If that does not work at sounds like you have either blown the rectifier pcb or burnt out the DC motor that is in the brush head. You can get a complete replacement brush head for 70 pounds.

Motor turns on, but brush won't turn. belt is not broken


Sometimes hair and debris get in the end of the rollers and keep them from turning. Also, the bearings can become corroded and stick. Try removing the rollers and check for any debris and remove it. If the bearings are stuck, you can spray some lubricant or WD40 or them and try to free them up. On occasion the belt can come off of the motor. You can turn the unit over and see if the belt is moving over the roller. Good luck and let us know how you made out.

DC15 Animal brush motor not working?


Just had the same problem. Switches and motor checked ok, then found the circuit board on the left hand side of cleaner. The fuse (on the board) looked ok, but when removed and checked for continuity I found it had blown. The problem I have now found is that the fuse cannot be ordered only the complete board. Hope it gets the brush roller going again.
