Resolved Question:

Vac. cleaner MC-UL712
Beater bar will not turn. Have tried turning beater bar switch to on, also tried on off switch to off.I have also cleaned the floor nozzle as described.
None of the above have proved positive.
The beater bar will turn so far,then appears to jam up,continued pressur will make it turn then it gets jammed again when it reaches the same point.
Any other suggestions ?

Hello Gordon, my name is***** the beater bar keeps stopping like that, it may be the case that the belt is slipping, or the bearings for the beater bar are seized and the beater bar needs replacing.
