Thanks to several of you I found the correct brush roll on eBay and oddly its from the same exact seller who sent me the wrong one even though I sent him the exact model #! Should have it by Wednesday.
Being one who dislikes throwing away serviceable parts I have now analysed two failed brushrolls. The small bearing on the end of a brushroll that has decent brushes is failed and I am trying to take off what appears to be an endcap holding it in place possibly pressed on. If I could remove it could replace the bearing easily. Surely someone more mechanically adept that me has figured this out. Anyone know how to remove the endcap that appears to be holding this bearing in place??
