Turbo Brush roller problem on Electrolux Harmony EL6985

Roller attachment won't spin. I have pulled out all the hair and strings. I have unscrewed the bottom to see if I could find more problems, but it won't come off.

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.

Bissel easy vac roller won't work


remove brush roll and clean any string, hair, or whatever from it. especially around the ends. you can also unscrew the ends and check for debris there also. when you put ends back on use a little wd40 to lube up the bearings. if that doesn't work replace brush and won't hurt to change belt

Unit works until we put an attachment on and then it loses sucking power


Which attachment is it? If it is the turbo attachment, it may just need to be cleaned out. Hair (both pet and human) can get wrapped around the brush, gears, and belt, causing the vacuum to lose suction. If you clean the head out, the vacuum should run much better.

Also make sure you have the base unit set to "full power" and not the gentle setting.

If this solution was helpful, please consider rating it. Thank you!

The motor spins but the belt will not move, therefore the rubber on the belt burns right where it is attached to the motor.


Sounds like your carpet beater roller is jammed up, probably with hair or string, in most cleaners you can remove the roller by taking the cover off below the brush. Remove the roller and clean wrapped uo stuff

How to clean turbo brush of harmony electrolux and put it back together properly


Wait, there are two more screws that must be removed before the top shell will come off. They are located under the wheels. Pop the wheels out by simply inserting yoru finger or a small tool into the wheel and pulling straight up. Remove those two screws and then you can proceed as mentioned above.
When reassembling the head, if the shell does not snap back onto the base, check for plastic chips or other debris in the narrow slots on the underside of the shell. Clear these slots out and the head should easily snap back together.

My brush will not turn, and the brush control is stuck on "off"


I have had problems with the belts on my Mach 5 overheating (smell of burning rubber) and also with the motor overheating and shutting down.
I learned the hard way that one of the issues might be that the roller/brush on the bottom of the unit has a metal bearing inside the roller/brush that can become clogged with hair (both human and pet hair) which effects performance of the unit.
It’s fairly easy to fix.
Lay the vacuum on the floor so that you can see the roller/brush. Then remove the phillip head screws that hold the protective plastic plate over the roller/brush. (There are about 6 screws that hold this plastic protective plate in place) Also, you will be removing the (1) screw that also holds the plastic plate over the belts. There are (2) belts that you can remove and when in doubt replace these (2) belts for around $9.00.
Once you have the protective plastic plate off that covers the roller/brush disconnect the belt is around the roller. Take the roller and cut off any hair that is wrapped around the roller. Next, grab the roller by each end and twist the ends caps and (1) of the ends will unscrew. Once you have unscrewed one of the ends remove any hair or dust that is trapped under this cap. (Be careful not to lose the small metal washer that sit on top of the bearing)You will notice under this cap is a metal bearing that can become clogged and jammed with hair. The hair should come out fairly easy and allow the brush to spin fairly easy once you have screwed the end caps back in place test that it spins freely. If it doesn’t spin freely replace the roller/brush with a new one for about $23.00.
When you put the belts back on the thick rubber one (Belt # 40201-271) has probably become stretched and should be replaced for about $3.00. The small diameter belt that goes over the roller/brush probably does not usually need to be replaced and does not usually fit very tight. I have heard that people will take the small roller/brush belt and turn it upside down to get a better fit.
I just did this on my Mach 5 and it runs like a new machine. I did end up replacing the roller/brush head.
Hopefully you will find this useful.

Self propel not working, burning smell


Flip the vacuum cleaner over and check the roller brush. Is it full of string and hair? If so, unscrew the four phillips-head screws holding the plate on that covers the roller brush; pull out the brush, and cut off/clean off all the hair and string. Replace everything and try running the vacuum. Alternate solution: perhaps the belt that makes the brush go around is broken. If so, follow the above steps to remove the roller brush, then replace the belt.
