My brush will no longer spin on my Wyze cordless vacuum. I’ve barley used it. The lights come on so it’s getting power. I want to check and see if it’s the belt. How do I open the brush unit to get to the belt?
I’ve removed the screws from the bottom part and can get it to open a bit, but it won’t open. It feels like I will have to force it and I don’t want to break it. Does anyone have any instructions or a video that shows how to access the belt?
Thank you for linking this post!! I will look into it tomorrow. I bet you are right. I believe it did stop because of too much hair. I didn’t realize that piece comes apart, so this is great to know! I figured out the mechanism on the brush holder spins just fine, So it is the brush itself that is the issue.
There is a belt, but thankfully mine is still intact. I figured out there were two screws underneath the tiny wheels. After removing those I was able to take the vacuum brush holder (what is that thing called?) apart and get a glance at the belt.
If all is intact with respect to the belt, also check to make sure the bearing spins freely on the short shaft that attaches to the belt spindle. Despite appearing clean, I used an x-acto knife in the small gap where the bearing spins and was able to pull away and cut out a good amount of hair until it was able to spin freely.
