My electrolux canister vacuum roller does not spin even though it has power.

Is there a simple sollution to my canister vacuum?  The roller does not spin even though there is power and suction.  Does it need a new belt? And is that something I can repair myself at home?

Take the floor attachment and on the front where you attach the wand there's a rubber like cover take it out,then you'll see a screw that you would need a star key driver,loosen it and the cover comes off,you'll see 2 wires,black and red,on mine the red wire came loose,just reattach and put things back together and you're good to go.
Hope that helps

When the vacuum is one and the switch for on for the carpet position. There is a small button the the floor attachment which we call the power head. It will b in the place of where the head becomes L shaped its either black or red. Push the button while the machine is on. If it does not work call ur electrolux dealer and have them pick it up. Or call me I'm a dealer and can have UPS pick it up no charge for u 1-866-966-9350.

I have an Electrolux upright with problems with the rollers. The reset switch that sticks out of the broke off several years ago and it worked fine. My wife sucked some string into the rollers and they...


Since the vacuum does reset, I suspect a different problem. If strings, hair, and similar items are picked up, they also wind around the ends of the brush, which would result in the roller being too tight to spin, thus shutting off the motor. You probably won't be able to see the ends without taking the powerhead apart. The problem with the consumer taking it apart is getting it reassembled correctly.
I do recommend getting the switch replaced, though. Take the vacuum to an authorized Aerus Electrolux store for repair and cleaning. Being an older one it probably needs it.

Lux legacy canister vacuum - the top light on the canister went on. No power to the bottom of the roller. What does that light mean. Looks like a plug


The "plug" light simply tells you the machine is plugged in and receiving power.
I'm not sure what you mean by "no power to the bottom of the roller". If the power nozzle motor isn't working, make sure nothing is wrapped around the brush, remove if there is, and press the reset switch.
If the power nozzle motor is running, but the brush isn't turning, then the belt must have broken, and needs to be replaced.
Considering your machine may still be under warranty, I suggest taking it to a local Aerus dealer and having it replaced.

Brush not working??? Belt is fine.


Even though the brush is spinning, you probably need to replace the belt2_bing.gif because it is stretched. It is probably slipping on the beater bar...

Turbo Brush roller problem on Electrolux Harmony EL6985


To get the bottom off, you have to remove the two big wheels by popping them out, and there are two more screws underneath. Once you remove those screws, you can pop the housing halves off and get to everything inside so you can clean it.

F7452900 the brushes won't rotate during floor cleaning


Solution for Hoover SteamVac (F7452-900) brushes not spinning
Uses the turbine model and same solution would be similar. Root cause is simply the main gear attached to turbine becomes stuck. This problem should not happen as often as I see other people also having this problem. Must be a poor design on Hoover’s part. It takes about 30 minutes and a Phillips screw driver and wrench. Pretty easy, just have to remember what screws went where.
Remove brushes, and front suction cover
On the bottom of the machine:
Remove the 4 screws behind brushes which attach the top faceplate
Remove the 2 screws from base in the sunken holes
Remove the two long silver screws from base which connect all the way to turbine assembly
Stand machine upright
Remove the floor select switch handle
Remove 1 screw near the center beside the intake hole
Remove the 2 screws over the rear wheels
Remove faceplate cover, the front will need to be gently pried over the clear plastic part, be careful about the upright disengaging lever under faceplate, move it under the metal wire
Remove the 2 screws in the front of the turbine assembly
Remove the 2 hoses on either side
Disengage the bar on the floor selector switch
Pull out the turbine assembly
Remove the 4 screws and 3 clips to separate the assembly
Remove the filter (which is most likely clean since, cleaning this is the manufactures only solution)
Remove the large white gear and with a wrench remove ball bearing
Remove other large white gear
Note that the metal gear attached to turbine will not move (this was my problem), with a wrench gently grab metal gear and twist free. Spin turbine to make sure it moves freely.
Put everything back together again and you should be good to go.
