SOURCE: Hi,

Check the end cap bearings ... and replace the belt even though it may not be broken. Put a drop of sewing machine oil (no more) in each end cap bearing.

SOURCE: after turning on power , brush roller freezes and indicator light turns red

try turning the roller by hand UNPLUG VACUUM FIRST
it should turn very easy, otherwise it is binding
all uprights have this problem eventually
hair and fibers get in roller bushing and seize
luckily disassembling is relatively easy, same procedure as replacing the small belt that drives the roller. Take the extra step and take out the roller slip off bushings and clean everything
have fun

    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...

    What does yellow exclamation point light mean


    YELLO and RED mean danger - clogging, not brush turning, overheating, .... it is time to RESET -- turn it all off and let it sit for half hour - that is what the manual says, check the brush that is not clogged up and check the inlet to the hose and where the hose goes into the body from the head unit where the brush is - make sure those not clogged either. Turn it on, push the RESET button on left back side of head unit by the switch that changes height. The reset button is like a circuit breaker - stops unit when overheats, starts when reset. Yello is ERROR, and fix it before it turns red and stops all the way. Cheers!!!

    The brush is not turning and a red light is on


    It could be that the brush motor just needs to be reset. You should find a button near the brushroll cleaner step lever.

    Red exclamation light is on and brushes not turning


    On my Electrolux Precision, the exclamation light indicates that it detected an obstruction and will stay lit until the obstruction is cleared AND the "reset" button is pushed. The reset button is on the black part (same side as the exclamation light) about half-way back on the side of the vac.

    How to replace belt on lux 4000 vacuum?


    The following is for most models of the Aerus Electrolux UR models.

    Lay the vacuum on it's front so you can see the bottom of the powerhead as shown below. Befrore going further, hold your hand straight and move your hand across the opening for the brush. If the bristles don't make good contact, the brush also needs replaced.
    Remove the four screws. Using a flathead screwdriver, place it into the two rectangle openings (shown with red arrows) near the wheels and gently pry on tab to release the top of the power head.

    Flip machine over and gently lift back of cover which will release the front. Lift off and set aside.

    This is what you should see. Remove the two screws at the ends of the brush. Check carefully how the ends of the brush fit in. Gently lift out brush. This is a good time to clean entire interior of the power head. Install new belt over motor shaft and teeth of brush: set brush into place. Insert screws. Check tension of the belt.

    Replace cover of power head, being sure to settle front in just beneath the lip of the front of the base first. Press down until it "clicks" into place. Turn machine over and insert and tighten screws.
