I had just changed the belt and I turned it on to see how it was working , and I noticed that it sounds like the motor is working hard


Take the belt off machine, try machine with the belt off, if motor sounds OK, try spinning the brush before putting belt on, if brush does not spin freely, see what is clogging it.
When brush spins freely, reassemble correctly and try.

Brush not working, green light not lit. have taken apart and put back together but still not working.


Hi Carol, Many models have a reset button (breaker) on them to protect the motor that turns brush. Look for one of these on yours and reset it. Should be on the outside of the unit.
This could also be a missing or worn belt. If you forgot to look for this when you had it apart, open it up again and make sure there is a rubber belt running between the motor and the pulley on the brush. If it's there, try turning the brush while holding one side of the belt with your fingers, to see if the brush pulley slips easy under the belt. If is does, you need a new belt. Make sure it's not plugged in... : )
Hope this help....

My electrolux vacuum has a red light that won't turn off and my brush roll won't work


Check the belt and the end bearings are free by hand. (electric off plug out) if not free remove plate to access roller/brush, remove clear any obstruction (Hair/string/thread) replace and test. ensure you site belt back on to spindle and roller/brush correctly...

Reset button for Eureka 431 bagless upright???Where is it?!


If the red light is one the says "check brushroll" then you have to take it apart to find out what the problem is. It might be that the roll has too much stuff rapped around it so you have to take it out and clean. It could also be the rubber belt is not properly in place. Once you take the bottom off the belt should go on the far right side. Those are the only things i can think of. I have had mine for 3 years and have never seen a reset switch. Usually when my light comes on it is because there is a lot of hair rapped around my brush roll.

Reset button


Do the brush rolls turn ok? The brush roll motor may be bad.

If the brush is spinning ok, and the belt isn't slipping, then probably the circuit breaker is bad, or the motor is causing the problem.
