SOURCE: Brush won't spin when position of handle changes

The belt for this machine is very specific and only one size fits. It is not uncommon for vac shops to sell the wrong belt because the proper belt is not available from normal supply houses, so they will substitute something they think will work.

Also, assuming you do have the right belt, check the tension arm that drops down on the v-belt when the handle is brought back. This arm has a wheel/bearing with a plastic "tire" or trim that rolls on the belt to tighten it. Sometimes, this tire cracks and falls off and then the remaining bearing won't have the necessary tension to tighten up the belt.

SOURCE: No suction from base or hose attachment

Hi,
I had the same problem with my Eureka vacuum cleaner. I don't have the problem with the beater bar, but I had the problem with the attachment hose not getting any suction. I found out that I was putting attachment on the wrong end of the hose. The end that you use in the front. Don't how I got that confused because it always worked before. Hope this helps with the hose part of the problem.

SOURCE: Rotating Floor Brush Isin't spinning

It appears that the end of the brush is getting jammed with hairs, treads, and/or dust or the belt may be worn. Try taking the brush out and hold it by the ends and try to turn it. It should turn quite easily if it is working good. If not try taking the ends off and clean them out. Also, make sure the belt is good.

Brush bar stops rotating when I recline the upright part beyond 45 degrees. Brush bar rotates but if I move the machine too far away, increasing the angle it stops. All cleaned out etc


There is a switch in the ball which is activated as you pull the handle back from the upright position. The lever that activates the switch pivots as the handle rotates backwards. Try to determine if this lever could be broken or mislocated somehow..

Our DC41 is impossible to push on carpet. Is there an adjustment to do? Almost like there is too much suction.


See if the following information can help.

CARPETS OR HARD FLOORS

• The brush bar will always default to 'ON' (spinning) each time you switch the

appliance 'ON' and recline it for cleaning.

• The brush bar will not rotate when the appliance is upright.

• To switch the brush bar 'OFF' (e.g. for delicate rugs and hard floors):

- switch the appliance 'ON'

- recline the appliance

- press the brush bar 'ON/OFF' button - the brush bar will stop spinning.

• The brush bar will automatically stop if it becomes obstructed. See 'Brush bar -

clearing obstructions'.

• Before vacuuming your flooring, rugs and carpets, check the manufacturer's

recommended cleaning instructions.

• Some carpets may fuzz if a rotating brush bar is used when vacuuming. If this

happens, we recommend vacuuming in 'hard floor' mode and consulting with

the flooring manufacturer.

• The brush bar on the appliance may damage some carpet types. If you are
unsure, turn 'OFF' the brush bar.

Hoover steamvac 50 stopped spinning


Hi! The brushes can stop spinning if something is obstructing them such as carpet fibers, hair, dirt or debris. Remove the brushes from the cleaner by grasping the plastic outer housing and pulling firmly away from the cleaner. Remove any debris and run it under running water to clean. On the back of the brush-block assembly there's a plastic drive pin that rotates all the brushes when turned. Turn the drive pin and ensure that all brushes are making a complete 360° degree turn. If the brushes are getting stuck or if a brush falls out then the brush-block will need to be replaced. Follow the link here to order a replacement brush-block for the Steamvac Search Results. Below is a list of models this brush will fit.
F5912-900, F5914-900F5915-100, F5915-900, F5915-905, F5917-900, F5918-900, FH50041, FH50042, FH50043, FH50044, FH50045, FH50046, FH50047, FH50048CA
Hope this helps!

Dyson dc33 brush won't turn but belt not broken


Hi there, it's Jack at Dyson.

DC33 is suitable for cleaning hard and carpeted floors. It includes a brush control system which allows you to shut the brush bar off when cleaning hard floor surfaces. It's worth checking that the brush control is set correctly - it's possible it may have been inadvertently set to 'Hard floors'. For the brush bar to rotate, it must be set to 'Carpets':

07061835-cc37-4e9f-b20c-ef1beba7e89e.jpg

It's also important to note that the brush bar will not rotate when the vacuum is standing upright, so make sure you recline it into the normal vacuuming position before testing it.

If this doesn't resolve the issue, please turn off and unplug the machine, then check that there are no obstructions in the cleaner head which could be jamming the brush bar. Remove any threads or hair around the brush bar, as these can affect the performance.

Cleaner not picking up


Hi Barbara, it's Jack at Dyson.

I'm sorry to hear the brush bar in your machine isn't rotating. Please make sure that the brush control on the cleaner head is set to 'Carpets' rather than 'Hard floors', as the brush bar will not rotate when the machine is set to the Hard floors position.

Please note, the brush bar will never rotate when the machine is standing upright, so make sure it's reclined into the normal vacuuming position before testing it. You might find our online Support guide useful when troubleshooting:

Brush does not touch floor when handle > 45 degrees


Hi.

I have come accross this a few times over the years,
I have found that the only way to rectify this is to fit new internal hose (short transparant hose under machine)
When a new one is fitted the spring coil action from the hose pushes head flat down to floor.
Hope this helps you.
