Common parts replaced on Sanitaire vacuum cleaners
Sanitaire brush rolls are another common replacement part. Before your vacuums motor dies you’re probably going to have to replace the brush roll or brush roll strips. This happens because the constant friction between the bristles and flooring surface wear down the bristle length until your vacuum no longer picks up debris effectively. For users needing a replacement brush roll, this can be attributed to fibers (hair and string) melting in the sides if your brush roll. This seizes the turning ability of the brush roll inhibiting its spinning ability. Best practice is to cut excess debris that becomes wrapped around the brush roll.
