How to Identify and Fix Common Vacuum Problems ?
Our sources include academic articles, blog posts, and personal essays from experienced Vacuum Technicians :
Should the brush not rotate freely there may be debris tangled around the ends of the brush, carefully remove any obstructions or replace the brush with a new one. We recommend that you fit a new belt and brush once per year to keep your Reactive vacuum working efficiently.
Check the hose for any clogs
If your Shark vac has a hose, feel along the length for any lumps. That indicates a clog that`s causing your suction issues. See if you can break the clog by applying gentle pressure with your hands, or gently move it to the end of the hose to remove it.
The Shark Rotator Powered Lift-Away has one rotatory belt. The belt is responsible for the mechanical rotations of the brushroll. Without it, the vacuum will not function.
Where is the shark vacuum brush bar reset button? You can find the shark brush-bar reset button on the underside of the vacuum.
Clear the brush roll of any hair and debris and inspect by placing it on its end and spin. The brush should spin freely. If it doesn`t spin; it may be time to replace.
If you have checked for airway blockages and have cleared your filters, a damaged or deteriorating hose may be causing your vacuum`s loss of suction. On most Shark vacuums, there are two hoses to check, the short hose between the main vacuum head and the base, and the hose between the handle and the wand.
That depends greatly on the vacuum itself and what you`re using it for. A Shark vacuum that spends its days cleaning pet hair and other everyday messes might last as long as a decade. Investing in the best portable steam cleaner can last for a long time as well if they`re well taken care of.
Next to the motor, the belt on your vacuum is just about the most important part of your vacuum. Without the belt to spin the brushroll, most vacuums won`t pick up on carpeting at all! If your vacuum uses a rubber belt, check it once a month for cracks, melting, and especially, slippage.
The Brush Roll is Wrapped with Hair: If the brush on your Shark is wrapped with hair, there is a possibility that the friction caused by this melted your brush, making it unable to spin. First, try spinning the brush with your hand. If you are unable to do this, you likely need a new brush roller as yours has seized.
To reset your shark vacuum, put the Power button in the On-Off position and keep the vacuum unplugged. If necessary, clear the hose. Once it has cooled completely, plug the vacuum back in again.
The rotating brushes move counterclockwise together, trapping and absorbing the dirt that is deep in the carpet fibers.
A Revolving Brush Roll Greatly Enhances Carpet Cleaning
Vacuum cleaners specifically designed to clean carpeted floors have motor or turbine driven revolving brush rolls with rows of bristles and sometimes beater bars as well. These brush rolls revolve at a very high speed, agitating the carpet fibers in the process.

My Hoover Windtunnel Mach 6.9 brush roller quit working. Upon investigating I found that the idler arm pulley was broken so I managed to replace that. Before putting the cover back on I see the control knob for the roller brush moves a plastic piece left or right to activate/deactivate the brush roller. I don't know where this plastic piece connects. It appears to me that the idler are when raised creates tension on the belt which drives the roller. I'm at a loss trying to figure ou
I have a Bissell Pro Heat 2X carpet cleaner and the brushes spin, then stop. I turn it off and when I re-start, the brushes do not spin until I push foreward. The it spins and stops again. Both belts are tight. The brushes spin if held above the carpet, but upon contact with carpet it stops. Same thing on a hard surface.
The reason for the brushes to stop when it is above any surface is there is a switch in the handle that stops the brushes so it dont burn your motor up it may have a faulty switch.
My eureka 5902 4D bagless uprights roller brush stopped spinning. The belt is ok. This model has a sliding switch for roller speed. The brush should spin when you release the handle via the foot release. Bad brush motor or is there a fuse involved?
The same thing happened to me about a year ago with this very model.
.The issue on mine was a small, copper-colored metal wheel that attaches to the end of the brush roller. You’ll need to remove the top cover (there are several screws).
.Once it’s off, you should see the belt, the beater brush, and the metal gear. The gear didn’t fit correctly – so the motor just spins without moving the brush. I ended up going to the store and buying superglue that withstands high tempuratures, then gluing the gear to the motor’s shaft… and hammering the thing into place before the glue ‘set’ too much. …Not fun, but it’s working and has been ever after. I can take photos of the thing if need be.
Why wont the brushes spin? I have had this machine for about 3 years and it has always worked great, tonight the brushes will not spin at all, it still sprays and sucks up the water. We took the brushes off and were able to spin them by hand
