When the vacuum is turned on is the brush roll supposed to spin because mine doesn't

The brush roll has its own motor. You have to buy a replacement. It costs about half the cost of the vacuum itself! I just bought one… and now the actual vacuum has completely died on me. This thing has been nothing but money and hassle!

After a few seconds of being on it turns itself off and flashes between the hardfloor and carpet settings before turning off completely! It’s done this with both batteries and is just new so have no idea what is wrong with it?

Hard floor and carpet lights both on at same time. So don't know what setting it's on. New machine about 5 weeks old

how can we be sure that replacing a part will fix the problem? i’m sure there are DMM tests that can be run in advance to be sure. Also, how are we supposed to know specifics about replacement parts without further research? Part numbers and manufacturers should be listed in the article.

Mine is doing the same thing. I’ve cleaned the filters and the vacuum head and the batteries are fully charged. My vacuum is three months old. I’ve even recommended it to others! What the heck!

Me again… check out a trouble shooting video by a young man from the UK. Within minutes my vacuum was fixed! My pipe was completely clogged and the only way I could tell was to remove the head and motor. I checked the flexible hose part first. I then held the pipe up to the light but couldn’t see a thing. This told me there was a clog. I had to straighten out a wire hanger to get down to the clog. I carefully jabbed at it. Globs of dog hair and debris came out. This took several times, and with each time debris came out, I checked through for the light. I couldn’t believe how jammed it was! Again, check out the you tube trouble shooting. Back and running perfectly!!
