The prongs at every connection are easily broken off when changing parts. You''ll have to replace the part with the broken prong. I also had a melt down in the handle port where the prongs fit in which made the power attachment flaky and had to replace the handle and hose. Totalvac.com has all the parts.

Turn the brush unit upside down, so you can see the brush roller. Then, with the brush roller positioned nearest to you, you will find the reset button close to the rear edge, near the wheel that's on the right hand side as you look at it.
Good luck! I hope this works for you. I value your feedback. Please remember to rate this response.

Electrolux EL7020 SHUTS OFF Constantly!

Carbon brush is the one of the most serviceable parts of a vacuum cleaner because our vacuum cleaner motor is very hard working parts so the brush inside will possible worn or not connected to the armature of rotor...

Where is the belt housed on the Hoover vacum cleaner model U5461-900? The belt number is 38528-033 but I can't find where the broken belt is to replace it.


Simply lay the machine down with the brush assembly facing upwards, and remove the four screws holding the bottom plate in place, and remove it. Put the new belt around the motor shaft, then around the brush assembly and push the brush back into place. Turn the brush with your fingers before replacing the bottom plate, to be sure the belt isn't caught between the brush and housing.

How do you replace the belt in an Electrolux model 1521


I guess you are talking about the belt in the Power Nozzle, right?
(for the vacuum cleaner itself, has not belts in it...)

So-- if we are talking about the power nozzle:
Lay the floor part of this nozzle on a bench or table (with newspapers underneath!!)

Usually there are 2 or 4 large head screws on that smooth metal floor plate--
Remove them, and this cover plate usually pivots forward, exposing the brush, the drive motor and the belt-
Notice the height adjusting settings, for how far the brush goes into the carpet-- and determine if you want to use that same setting,-- or if the brush is worn, you may want to adjust the brush 'out' more, so that the bristles get into the carpet more?

Can you remove the brush?-- removing the end farthest from the belt, first?
This allows the old belt to come off, Now slip the new one on-- notice the notches-- make sure the spacing of the notches in the belt matches the notches in the pulleys.--
Now can you insert the brush back in the bearing slots-- Belt end first?-- Dercide whether to use the same depth, or a deeper brush depth, and nestle everything back in to the retainers. Does the brush turn easily? -- a few drops of oil on the bearings won't hurt.. Be sure to clean all the strings and threads and hair that gets wound around the brush, while you have it all in the open.

You can test the installation when you are safely away from the moving parts-- does it turn freely now?
Replace the cover plate, and tighten the screws-- remembering that they just need to be snug.

Let us know how this turns out-- and if we can help more.

Power head turns on and works the power that turns vacum on not


If the suction motor doesn't come on but the brush motor does, you have a bad vac motor. If neither motor runs, it's probably a cord problem. Most parts for these are not available anymore.

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.

How do i open canister for cord retract repair


There are four screws under the lid, and there are two additional screws under the face plate for the controls display. You'll need a thin, flat blade screw driver to "pop" the face plate off. The two additional screws that you are looking for are deeply recessed about the bracket-nozzle park.
