Has all packaging material been removed? Is the belt in place on the bottom of the vacuum? If these are done, I would return it immediately for a replacement.

What causes my Shark Vacuum to work only intermittently?


If the brush roller operation is intermittent, there may be hair jammed inside the end caps. The brush roller can be removed and the end caps also for inspection. Intermittent operation also can be caused by a stretched drive belt.
The periodic failure to pick up may be caused by something such as a ball of hair migrating through your vacuum cleaner and stopping from time to time to test your patience

Can the Turbo Brush on a Bissell vacuum be repaired?


Hey Teri! If you have good suction from the end of the upholstery hose, the turbobrush should rotate as long as there isn't anything binding the brush. Otherwise, a new turbobrush will need to be purchased.

Here's a quick link to ordering one online.

Shark SV736R motorized brush won't rotate


The 2 metal pins of the motorized brush are not in contact with the vacuum cleaner. or the Motorized brush is clogged up. You have mentioned that it is cleaned, but still give a thorough inspection. For the metal pins, firmly insert the motorized brush into the air-intake nozzle. This will connect the motorized nozzle to the unit power supply.

Brush will not rotate but still has suction


Hi there,

Sorry to hear you're having difficulties with your DC14. Please note, the brushbar will never rotate when the cleaner is standing in the upright position, or if you have the brush control set to 'Hard floors'.

However, if you find the brushbar won't rotate when you've reclined the cleaner into the vacuuming position, and have the brush control set to 'Carpets', it's probably best if you get in touch with us directly. One of our experts will be happy to run through some troubleshooting over the phone with you, and recommend the best course of action. You can call us free on 08002980298 (UK), or 1866MYDYSON (US).

Kind regards,

Jack

Brush wont turn belt not broken no sure how to get to shaft to see if it is turning


Hi there,

Sorry to hear you're having difficulties with your DC07. If the brushbar in your cleaner doesn't seem to be rotating, please check you have the brush control set to 'Carpets', as it won't rotate when set to 'Hard floors', or if the cleaner is standing in the upright position.

If the brush control is set correctly and the brushbar still won't turn, it's probably best if you get in touch with us directly. One of our experts will be happy to run through some troubleshooting over the phone with you, and recommend the best course of action. You can call us free on 08002980298 (UK), or 1866MYDYSON (US).

Dyson 18 slim the rotating brush bar will not rotate. Was working fine until I got the edge of a tablecloth caught in the brush, pulled it out ok but now the brush will not rotate fast, but will rotate by...


If the DC18 has a proteted belt then it will have to be replaced by a Dyson engineer or repairer. If the cleaner has a removable sole plate where the beater bar is then remove it and replace the belt - sounds like the belt has snapped and needs to be replaced. if your DC18 is still relatively new it should still be under guarantee.

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.

If belts are ok then possibly needs new front brush motor replaced.
