The brush part doesn't spin anymore. I checked it and a little blk rubber piece fell out

For the brush to stop spinning, this suggests the belt has snapped or come off the motor. The little black rubber piece which fell out may be the remains of a chewed up belt. I suggest checking the belt is where it should be, may be hidden under a removable cover, and that it is stretched round the motor spindle.

Sounds like you need a new belt underneath the machine. They are easy to change. Use a paper towel when you remove the old one, the black rubber will come off on your hands and get all over everything. If you can, take close up pictures of the beater bar when you take it off. It just pulls straight off. Remember which side goes where and what the little ears look like when you pull it off - slowly so you can see how they went in. Take the old belt to the store along with the make and model of your machine. Some belts are round, some flat and some longer than others. This will end any confusion:) When you put it back together, you may have to wiggle the beater bar to get it in properly. Be patient, they rarely go in the first time. Good luck.

I have a Dyson DC 15 Vac. The brush does not spin consistently while using. It goes on and off during use. I have checked for loose wires, etc. Have found nothing. Any suggestions?

This can happen if two tiny wires that are connected to the circuit board and lead to the beater bar are broken. These wires brake where they go through a black rubber grommet. You need a torx screwdriver (No: 15) to remove two plastic covers to access these wires . When looking from the front of the vacuum, the circuit board is located under the gray covers on the right side of the vacuum. There is one big cover with a black rubber gasket and other small gray cover is on the rotating ball area.
See photos at here.

Brush not moving, suction working

This machine is made for Sears by Panasonic. The power head, depending on model has a "gear" / cog belt or a standard flat rubber belt. First turn the power head over and see if the brush roller turns easily, if so you do need a new belt. To access the belt you will have to remove the hood from the power head. There are 4 screws, one at each of the corners to take out. Once the hood is off you will see where the belt goes and find "teeth" in the motor shaft for the motor / brush roller if you need a gear belt. If both of these are flat you need a rubber belt.
You can go to and find the belt you need with the vacuums model number.

A black plastic ring fell off underneath at the bottom left... looks like it goes around something... ? bissell steamcleaner

Plastic or rubber? If it's a rubber ring it's the drive belt for the brush cylinder and should be replaced. You can buy one online or at a hardware store.

The belt p/n 0100623 broke - need instructions on how to replace it - we have Bissell ProHeat Powersteamer

I just replaced mine last night. 1) take off the top belt cover. 2) take the water and cleaning solution tanks out then lay the unit on the side so the bottom of the cleaner is facing you (water and solution may leak out so you might want to do this on an old towel). 3) On the same side of the machine as the belt cover but on the bottom you'll see an orange piece (at least it is on mine) that is held in with one philips screw. Take the screw out then slide the orange plastic piece out (might need a pliers to help). 4) there is a black cover over the brush belt that has a tab on it. Pull on the tab and the brush roller on that side will come out of its place. 5) You'll see a cogged belt that drives the brushes. Just slip that off the drive on the machine. You don't need to take it out completely - just off the drive. 6) Slip the new belt (p/n 0100623) in and on to drive. It goes "inside" of where the cogged belt goes. 7) Slip the cogged brush belt back on. 8) push the brush roller and black belt cover back into position. 9) slide the orange plastic piece in place (make sure the belt cover is held in place by it) and screw it back on. 10) flip the cleaner so it is on its wheels again. 11) pull the new belt over the metal drive and manually get it kind of centered. Make sure it isn't touching any protruding plastic. 12) plug in the cleaner and quickly turn it on and off while looking at the new belt. You should see it self center. 13) put the top belt cover back on 14) insert water and cleaner tanks. 15) get to work.

It'll take less than 10 minutes to make this fix (less than 5 probably).

Fantom fury vacuum

  1. Unplug the machine.
  2. From the front of the machine, remove the collection bin.
  3. Facing the back of your vacuum, remove each of the Philips head screws located above each of the rear wheels. (Figure 1)
  4. To remove the base cover, place your thumbs in the two screw holes in the back of the machine. Push forward and up on the screw holes to disengage the 3 cover locking tabs. Put the cover off to one side, and go to the front of the machine. (Figure 2)
  5. Check the drive arm for any black streaks which indicate residual rubber from the last belt. The drive arm is located on the right side of the motor. The easiest way to remove any residual rubber is with some nail polish remover on a rag or with steel wool.
  6. To attach a new belt, remove the brush from the base of the machine by pulling up straight up with two hands.
  7. Take the new belt and hook it over the steel drive arm. Pull back on the belt slightly, to create some tension.
  8. Put the brush inside the belt loop so that the track for the belt is aligned with the belt itself.
  9. Replace the brush by aligning the metal end so the points face downward. (Figure 3)
  10. Rotate the brush by hand to check that the belt is running freely and easily in its designated space between the bristle.
  11. Replace the cover by placing the nose in first. Once in place fasten with the two cover screws and then replace the collection bin.
