Roomba 540 brushes are clean, properly installed... but not spinning. machine is telling me to "remove and clean roomba's brushes."

I think I can guess what the problem is - exactly the problem I made with my roomba when it was new: I didn't realise that the bearing came off the end. Is the end of your brush assembly yellow? If so, it pulls off. I'm going to take a flier and guess that you didn't know that, and your bearing is jammed up with hair. This is what the bearings look like:


Make sure they spin freely!

My vacuum stops showing "bag full" even after I

This is most probably due to a worn out or clogged Control Valve Assembly.
Detach the hose and see if it runs. If it does, place hand over hole. If it shuts off, CVA is probably the cause. A clogged CVA is generally due to using generic/made-to-fit bags. Genuine bags have "Home Solutions" printed on them.
You can try turning the dial all the way to the large dot, then try to run the vacuum.
If it is the CVA, you'll need to take it to an authorized Aerus Electrolux store and have their service tech repair or replace the part. I recommend a service and clean of the vacuum at the same time. This will extend the life of the vacuum.

Can't find your solutions. I found my problem

The solutions are sometimes hard to find. As someone who provides answers, I have the same problem at times when looking at answers and responses.

Let me know the make and model of the vacuum, and what problem you are having, and I will try to help you.

Help me with Search Tip: type in either product names or questions Search the entire site... or choose an option below Search the Web 1 Solution for "have miele solaris just had cord rewind repaired...

This is a common on some of the reviews I have read. The wires tend to break and sometimes wires get pulled from the motor itself.
Problem - Vacuum doesn't go on at all.
Solution - You have some sort of electrical problem. Proceed to the section on 'Finding Electrical Problems in Canisters' if you have a canister, or 'Finding Electrical Problems in Uprights' if you have an upright...


The vaccum can not work.

possible solution:

I had the same problem. try plugging in & pulling cord out of rewind a number of times. if motor goes on, you need repair on cord winder. per miele tech-"not common prob.", but repairman said "yes, common prob." good luck.


Power head on epic 6500 does not work, is there a belt?

This is a bot of a blind guess, I don't know the model. But most power head cleaners I have worked on use the suction of the vaccuum to spin a turbo fan in the head (like blowing a child's windmill). The head not spinning is usually because there's not enough **** to spin the turbo fan. Check for:
Gummed up brush bearings (dirt or damp) making the brush harder to turn than it should be.
Poor suction caused by a blocked or partially blocked pipe.
An obstruction that is tactchin the beater or the turbo fan.
Blocked filters on the cleaner, reducing the **** and thereby not providing enough vaccuum to spin the beater.
Not finding what you are looking for?
