Are you talking about the large power head (ised for floors) or the smaller power head (for upholstery)?

If you are talking about the large one the first thing I would check is the belt (accessed by turning the tiny lock knob on the bottom with a flathead screwdriver).

If the belt looks ok the next thing I would check is make sure an accumulation of hair hasn't built up on the ends of the roller....take the roller out and turn the roller by hand holding onto one of the ends...it shoudl move freely....

Filter queen majestic power head not working, main vacuum working but no power in head when plugged in. any suggestions as to what may be the cause for this to happen.


Is there power at the head, have you checked with a volt meter, most likely if not then the cord to the head is defective.

Why is my power head not working


You either have a broken power cable going to the head or your canister isn't supplying power to the head, or the motor for the head it bad.

I have a Electrolux Guardian Encore E and the power head quit working. It has suction power head off and all other attachments work.


Hi,
Try this. Remove the power nozzle from the lower wands. Remove the wands from the hose handle. Snap the power nozzle directly to the hose. Make sure all switches are turned on and try it. If the power nozzle now works, there's an issue with one or both of the wands. If the power head does NOT work, you've secluded the problem to the power head. With that being said and although it could be a power nozzle switch or a wire that disconnected inside, it's most likely the power nozzle Elbow assembly wiring that's worn out. This has been an issue with this model after so many years and you simply need to replace the Elbow assembly.
I hope this helps and let me know if I can be of any more help.

We have a Beam Q100 power brush and the fuse repeatedly blows. The Outage for the socket is okay.


Regardless of the vac shops analysis you do have a problem with the power head. It may be an intermittent problem that only happens when not at the shop. Ask the shop if you can test drive a new head at your home. Offer to leave a deposit on the new power head while you test your system.
