Here we will discuss some common issues and solutions for Eureka vacuum brush not spinning.

Dirty Brushroll

If the brush roll is sticking, it puts too much stress on both the belt and pipe. Remove the brush roll and clean all hair, string, and lint from around the bearings.

If the vacuum cleaner brushes still don’t spin after you have cleaned out the brush roll housing then consider replacing both or reinstalling one of them with a new part to get power going through to them again.

Brushroll Motor Failure

To troubleshoot the motor not running, the first test to make sure the power switch is getting power. If the power switch receives power, try testing that the brush roll motor turns freely and is clear of obstructions.

If there is power going to the motor but it doesn’t run, then one of two things may be wrong with the brush roll motor – either there may be an internal circuit board problem or a defective switch or controller board such as in your model.

Broken belt

One of the most common problems in a vacuum is when the brush roller is not spinning. This is typical because it has been detached from its previous location and may become dislodged due to wear and tear. The first thing to check for would be if it’s been correctly re-attached.

The next thing you can do if you can’t find where this might have happened is replacing the belt. We’ve found that vacuums come with instructions online or in stores as to how their belts are changed, so these should help you solve this problem!

Another common problem when it comes to a broken or cracked belt on your vacuum cleaner is pretty easy to spot once you’ve gotten the brush removed.


Why isn’t my vacuum picking up?

Three problems that can result in loss of suction when vacuuming include: the vacuum filters becoming blocked, an obstruction in the vacuum hose, and the vacuum belts being broken.

To solve these troubles, inspect underneath your vacuum cleaner to be sure there are no blockages inside its base as this could cause you to lose some airflow.

If ever you find debris or other oddities resident in your vacuum hoses, consider replacing them right away or else be prepared for some problems with your machine’s suction power!

Can I use my vacuum without a belt?

Without the belt and any of its surrounding parts, it won’t be able to spin fast enough to effectively pick up anything on carpeting!

If you have a vacuum that uses rubber belts, it’s crucial to check them at least once a month for cracks or even melted areas, as well as roughness across the surface.
