A freshly vacuumed floor always makes a room feel more welcoming. If you find, however, that your Kenmore vacuum cleaner is having trouble picking up dirt because the brush roll isn't spinning, you can take steps to get it back to its normal function again. Here are some troubleshooting tips to get your vacuum back in top working condition.
Certain kinds of debris, particularly human hair or animal fur, can easily become tangled in the brush roller's bearings. With the vacuum cleaner turned off, pull out the tangled hair. Push the reset button to get your vacuum running properly again.
The ribbed and cogged drive belts are the vacuum parts that connect the drive motor to the brush roller. Either of these belts can become worn or broken with time, and the cogged belt can lose some of the teeth that fit into the drive motor shaft. If you inspect these belts and notice signs of wear or damage, replace them.
Your vacuum's brush roll can wear down with time so that the bristles no longer lift dirt from the carpet as they pass over it. The cylinder on which the brush roll sits can also become damaged. If you need vacuum repair help with replacing your brush roll, just give Sears PartsDirect a call.
