Fein fmm250q not oscillating.. How do I disassemble the head?

Special be carefull with the 4 torx screws if you decide to disassemble the head because all the material of this machine is very soft before you know its broken its also not a expensive Fein model but a nice machine for that price . take a hand screwdriver with direct the right size to feel if its correct fit because its to late if a screw breaks. yes its having very soft material screws, the head cannot have a disassembling its a complete part and if that is complete but all by all decide if you think its worth to replace beware of the price , the price is marketing technically adjusted for this machine and expensive and not made to dissasemble in a bench vise you can all things try to disassemble but re-assembling with new spare parts is not deliverable. only complete . 1 little bearing gives the little eccentric rash on the head , i have i all the time i repaire tools not one time that a head of this tool was defect if you can move the lever free and smootly you can solvent clean and after that lubricate it again but re connect the bearing fronttop machine between the space in the lever set the head in a bench vise fixated that the lever is correct in the center position , and then mount the machine slowly on the head again and if its run mount a attachment or blade and control it again .

How do replace belt on dc41

Ouch The video below shows how to to remove the brush head and how to clean it. I almost think that Dyson didn't ever expect this belt to break. The rest of the disassembly to get to the brush seems to be done by removing torx screws, I have not been able to find a replacement from dyson. A google search shows several sites that sell a replacement belt.

Electrolux power nozzle quits working after just a few minutes of working. i've cleaned the head, but have to push the restart red button for it to go again for a few minutes

My guess is that hair, threads, and/or similar long fine fibers have gotten wrapped around the ends of the brush near where the bearings are. The PN may need to be disassembled to remove them. Be aware that if the vacuum is less than 5 years old, disassembly by anyone other than an authorized service tech will void the remaining warranty.
My recommendation is to take it to an authorized Aerus Electrolux store and let the tech perform a free service check. He/she can let you know what the problem is and for a nominal charge, probably repair it on the spot.

I think the belt is off or broken in the cleaning head, but need to get it apart and don't know how

It appears to be the same cleaning head on my model # 116, if so, there are two phillips screws underneath that must be removed. Also remove the two phillips screws on the collar above the head where the wand tube enters. Then there are four plastic retention clips that can be released with a flat head screwdriver. When lifting twist the collar assy that remains on the cleaning head to allow the top plastic cover to come away from the cleaning head. Once off, th brush and belt are easy to access.

I am experiencing some (not complete) loss of sunction when I use the hose

Dirty filter, needs cleaned or replaced.
Partially clogged hose, needs cleared. Detach hose from tank and drop marble down the end of the hose. It should roll through the hose and power head to the floor.
Partial clog in the power head between where hose attaches and the brush. Detach hose from power head and drop marble into opening. If the marble doesn't roll through, there's a clog that needs removed. You may need to disassemble the power head to do so.
Leaky hose, needs replaced.
Clog between back of tank and filter. This is where the hose attaches to the tank. Remove clog.
Clogged filter at bottom of tank, needs cleaned. Remove tank. There's a screen at the bottom of the tank/vacuum. Simply remove/clean anything that may be covering/clogging any of the holes.

Makes a horrible noise, and the rubber brush doesn't spin.

Noise is coming from the cleaning head module. Disassemble it and clean the gearbox on its side then remove the yellow caps from both brushes and clean. Also remove the front wheel and clean.

Broken belt

If you have the power head with the headlight, squeeze the sides of the upper part (almost like a superstructure,) where the headlight is located. It should lift off, allowing access to the screws to get the powerhead apart the rest of the way, and on most models it even has instructions on how to replace the belt molded into the plastic.
