Not so fast, there are teeth on the lower roll insert that can interfere with teeth on the housing. Is there a purpose for these teeth, maybe manufacturing mold release? My brush roll will not turn when re-installed. It installs easily, powers up, spins about 4 or 5 revolutions, then shuts off power for a second, then comes back on without the roller spinning at all. I can see it is the teeth interlocking but don’t know how it makes the first 4 or 5 revs. Very strange indeed!!

I have the same problem, where the teeth seem to be engaging and stopping the revolutions. Any fix for this?
