Check to see if there is a reset button on the head. This protects the machine for times like you described. When something jms up the reset button will turn ofdf th machine. Simply push the reset. Hope this helps, Chris

No revoloving brush type vacuum should ever be used on a loose rug as the fringes and edges will get caught in the brush. Not only can this damage the vacuum, but the rug will be damaged. We recommend a suction only type of nozzle with no brushs for all loose rugs.

Unplug it from the power source. Then remove the cover and see if the belt is broken or derailed from the motor.

I transported my newly given to me by my dad tristar from Fl to LA and I can't get the reset button to start the power. The vacuum comes on, but the rug attachment is not spinning I can't get


If the rug attachment is not spinning, it is likely the drive belt has come off. Also, the entire intake area probably needs to be cleaned.

If the vacuum cleaner starts, the reset button has nothing to do with why the attachment doesn't spin.

That's because you got something caught in the brush and it tore the belt (likely) or slipped off the drive portion of the motor (unlikely).
If you look at the bottom where the brush is, there are a bunch of screws to remove the bottom cover usually and can access the belt and motor to run the brush. \
belts are usually 5 to 10.00 get a pack of 2 if possible and don't do heavy rugs or get material caught in the brush lest it will happen again.. typically you can find vacuums in the trash and remove their belts, usually is only 2 or 3 types of belts so get one for free perhaps from trash.

A throw rug got caught in the rolling pin of vaccuum. Rolling pin no longer works.


Hello. more likely than not, the small belt that drives the roller has either dislodged or broken. Unless you have a dyson, you can replace that belt for about 5 dollars. The dyson, however has encased the belt in a plastic assembly and the entire assembly must be replaced for about 80 dollars. J.

How can i keep the belt onmy sharp vacuum


If you have a rug that has tassles or open bits of "carpet tassles," this will injur ANY upright vacuum cleaner. Best way to vacuum a rug is to use a hose with a suction only floor head or small tool on the end.
