If you’ve got one of the shark rotator vacuums and the brush rolls are not spinning, it’s usually because of two reasons, from what I’ve seen either a, your switch for the brush roll is not working and another one if your brush roll clogged with hair.
At first check, your shark vacuum motorized floor nozzle and make sure that there is no blockage in brush rollers, hose, and wheels. Check if there is any dirt or debris just remove all dust.
If your shark spinning brush roll clogged with hair and other dirt and debris just remove it all.
You know, it’s not going to mean to let you turn that brush wrong in the first place or the more likely culprit is there’s a tiny little switch.
That’s broken on one out the side, I’ve already taken this thing apart, but I figured I’d show you guys how to take it apart, and then you’ll see just exactly what I’m talking about.
If you have a pet and suffered from pet hair then you should take the best shark vacuum for pet hair.
But the first thing you need to do is just lean back, just like this and you have several screws you’re going to have to remove.
So, you have the left-side screw and right-side screw, but no deed to take out axles. You don’t need to take these out. These are for the axles that hold the wheels in place.
Leave those then don’t mess with them. You have left side screw and ride side screw, that screw this one and then under these two small wheels, and you maybe you have a screw under that wheel.
There is also you have another screw under this wheel and then you have need to open the plastic knob. You have another screw that’s hiding right down.
So, you remove all those screws and you don’t have to pull the connector portion. I did pull this off and the other part of this article because I wanted to check the wiring that was going through from the neck to here, because I can see it moves and copper wiring.
Stress hardens that breaks with movement 12 and neck here with these wires going through it that you know, it’s going to move back and forth because it swivels.
So, you’ve got wires here that are going to have to sit there and basically resist all that. But you also have another issue. plug this back in so you guys can see it get power.
In this particular machine, the brush rolls on. We span if the machine is reclined. So, when this is back this little guy right in here sitting on that and if they are any nasty mold just clean it.
So, at the vacuum standing up, right, you can see it and It’s pressing against the switch, but when you go back the idea is this little lever. It’s supposed to come off of the switch and which it does.
So, you’re that the problem with this particular brush roll and motor assembly powerhead is this little switch right here.
So, because this isn’t going to work and your motor is never going to turn on and spend the brush roll. What I’m going to do to see if I can prove this or not is just bypass the switch.
Just connect these two wires together. So then essentially just be completing the circuit all the time. So, let’s see what happens.
A wire nutted; this connection completely bypasses this piece of junk switch just in case it wants to shoot forward. works perfectly fine.
So, this stupid little switch is what basically would cause a customer to either buy a new vacuum or cost shark and get their one-time free warranty replacement on it into an online store, just to do a tertiary search and you can buy a brand-new switch if you really want it to. But the switch itself is not expensive.
It’s literally like 99 cents off of eBay and you can actually get two of them. So, because we have the switch bypassed, that’s not going to have any sort of effect anymore.
So, when you turn your machine on, you’re going to have to use this brush roll sweater. If you want your brush roll-off, you’re on seems to be working alright.
Now you have to put it upright. Then you have to do that, that little number on it. But it works. I mean, if you’re in a bind and you feel safe enough or confident enough to tackle that, and you don’t want to spend the money on a new vacuum, especially if yours is in really good condition, you still have all the accessories.
That’s one thing you can do to get a little bit more life out of it. I hope you guys enjoyed this article and if you want to learn more check our vacuuming blog for vacuum tips and tricks.
