    same problem - you need to have the nossel end over anything you are attemping to pick up and even that is not 100% successful. Checked all the filters and airways for blockages and it still doesnt pick up.

    I have exactly the same problem with the 1900 model of the same vacuum. Got this in January so haven't even had it two
    full months yet. It suddenly stopped picking up anythinga few days ago,
    so I cleaned all the bits and pieces as usual thinking that would solve
    the problem, but no luck. The tube thingy still works just fine, but
    the brush underneath has just completely stopped turning, so it is
    essentially useless unless I start running the tiny tube nozzle over
    every inch of my carpets (since I paid the better part of £100 for the
    wretched thing I have absolutely no intention of doing this!). All it
    does when I switch it on now is make enough noise to wake the dead.

    I'm all the more disappointed because when I first got it it worked
    really well. I haven't over-used it and have followed the maintenance
    instructions to the letter, so I can only conclude that it is very
    poorly made. Add to this the fact that I waited a whole month to throw
    out the box (in case something like this happened), only for this
    malfunction to come about literally hours after the box got taken to
    the dump, and you're left with a very cheesed off customer. It seems
    I'm fated to hours and hours of telephone calls to Electrolux to get my
    money back or a replacement. I don't think -2 months is an acceptable
    lifespan for a £100 vacuum cleaner.

We had the same problem and replaced the driver belt. The only problem is that we seem to have to replace the belt everytime we hoover!

Electrolux Velocity pet lover 1800W Drive belts keep on breaking...

Dear Judy, there are several things that can cause the problem you are having but I can give you a few things to look at. First is that you are getting the correct belt for your machine. Second is the motor and brush roll moving freely after you install a new belt & before you start vacuuming?. Third is the machine set at it's lowest setting(try a higher setting to start) finally is the belt an after-market made in china one. Quality in Chinese rubber products can suck at times. If all this is ok than it maybe best to take to your local vacuum repair shop. Good Luck-Jack of all trades bob

Your brush may not be spinning try pressing the reset button on the back of the power nozzle, it that does not work you may need to change the belt.

I have an Electolux Oxygen canister vacuum and the power head suddenly stopped working. It is only a few months old. Any suggestions.

1. You have to verify if it's simply the belt that has broken and the spinning brush isn't spinning because of it. Place your ear next to the top of the power head to listen for the power head motor. If electricity is getting to the head you'll hear the motor and know to inspect the belt.

2. If the motor doesn't run, look at the electrical pin connectioins in the pipe from the hose to the head. Are they burnt? If yes a new wand is needed. Also check the electrical connections in the hose handle and make sure they are not burnt.

Let me know if this helps

Electrolux vitesse pet lover 1700w. Keeps cutting out and electrical sparks in front vent

Hi there SmartAlec from here. I am sorry to be the bearer of bad news but if you can visibly see sparks and its cutting out then i would say that the motor brushes are nearly worn out. On this particular vacuum cleaner they are not sold as a spare part so i think it would need to go to a repair center for a new motor or to vacuum heaven for a replacement.
Regards Alec

I have a velocity pet lover 1900 only 2 months old

You have broken the rubber belt that drives the brush. Flip over and remove the old belt and replace it with a new one.
