How to Service A GV Turbo Head

In this video we learn how to disassemble, clean, and reassemble the GV Air Powered Turbo Head.

Important Safety Tips

  • Always make sure your machine is unplugged and the power button is turned off, before servicing your vacuum.
  • Always make sure your hands are dry and free from moisture before servicing your machine.
  • Be sure to wear gloves when servicing your machine to prevent any cuts or scrapes.
  • If you are uncomfortable working on your vacuum, please don’t hesitate to contact us at and we can help you through the process or you can send it into us to fix it for you. 


  • Flat head screwdriver
  • Phillips head screwdriver



To remove the top cover, flip the power head over and remove the screws. There are four easily visible and one under each wheel. The flat head screwdriver can be used to pop each wheel off. The Phillips head screwdriver can be used to remove the screws.

Once the screws are removed, flip the power head back over and take the cover off.

With the cover off, you will have access to the pivot, brush roll, and belt and can make any repairs or replacements needed. You can also clean hair and dirt off the brush roll.

Once you’re finished, replace the top cover.

Then put the six screws back in and you’re finished.

Next, we’re demonstrating how easy it is to service your brush roll. Start by taking it out.

To clean the brush roll you can use a straight razor or hook blade. Cut the hair and remove. Make sure to check each end for buildup of hair that needs removed.

Once the brush roll has been cleaned you can put it back in. Then replace the top cover and screws and you’ve successfully serviced your brush roll!
