Thank you

Hello again, Chris. I will assume you have depressed the brushroll switch, with the vacuum on and with the handle released into the back position, as if you were going to use it. If the brushroll still does not come on, the problem, commonly, is the circuit board. Depending on how long you have had this machine, you may be able to have it repaired under warranty, with no cost to you.
 There should be a date code on the same sticker on which you found the model number. It should be a letter, then two numbers, and another letter. The first letter corresponds to the month, and the two numbers are the year. The  letter of the month is coded numerically. "A" would be January, "B" would be February, "E" would be May, etc.  If you do not have a copy of your receipt, your warranty period will be figured from the date code.
 If the machine is out of warranty, I would suggest you not repair this unit. Unless you really love it, it's just not worth the cost of repair.
 I hope this helps. Thank you again for your question.

Please ask me any questions regarding the efficiency, durability, and value of 99.5% of today's vacuum cleaners, residential and commercial. I am able to help, also, with your residential carpet cleaners and vapor steamers. I cannot answer questions such as "how much should I pay for my vac?" "how often should I change the bag, belt, filter?" or "how often should I vacuum?" , etc. I also will not advise you how to use equipment for other than its original application; including any disassembly or modification not approved by the unit's manufacturer.


I am the owner of a well-established (sixty-plus years), family-owned & operated vacuum retail and repair business. We are a full service/warranty center for 99.5% of vacuums manufactured. I, personally, have extensive hands-on experience with today's most popular vacuum cleaners, I have not only used the vacs in my own home, I have repaired them. I have been in the floor care industry for over 25 years.

I have attended certification seminars with the industry's trade association. My education, however, has been mostly hands-on, carrying on a sixty year old tradition in a brick and mortar 'mom & pop' location.
