Probably a seized beater roller (the bearings wear out). Just order the new part and replace it and you'll be one your way again. And of course maybe a belt.

Electrolux Ultraactive losing suction and turbo head brush won't spin. Canister is empty, no blockage in hose or nozzle of turbo head, filters cleaned, but Hepa not replaced recently. Could that cause it...


Hi, it's Jeremy from Crucial Vacuum.

There are a few potential solutions you should try to fix the suction of your Electrolux vacuum. The first thing you should check is the height of your brush-roll. Your height setting may be too high for the type of floor you are vacuuming. Raise or lower your brush-roll depending on if you are vacuuming on carpet, tile, or wood surfaces.The second thing you should check is the vacuum bag. If it is full your vacuum can lose suction. This is simply remedied by replacing it with a new and clean bag. The third reason for a loss of suction is your hose is clogged. Check the hose for debris or foreign objects that may be obstructing the flow of air in the vacuum. The last potential reason for your vacuum losing suction could be the brush-roll itself. If it is clogged with dirt and hair it may not be spinning and not picking anything up. Check to see the condition of your brush-roll. If it is clogged remove the debris.

Change the belt on the unit, and adjust the height adjustment until the brushes are just touching the carpet. I know you mentioned the belt looks good, but when you get the new EXT-U belt, you will notice a size difference. Good luck!

My beater bar is struggling to turn. actually, it appears as though it is the motor that is struggling, as it slows down when going against the pile and the motor labours so much that it frequently fails...


Replace the belt, they should be replaced every 6 to 12 months. A belt may look ok but may have lost elasticity and be stretched out. If your belt is a year or two old it may be an inch or so longer than when it was installed. A stretched out belt may turn the brushroll fine but when it is lowered onto the carpet the belt may slip rather than spinning as fast as needed to properly agitate the carpet fibers.
If the motor isn't spinning properly that could be another problem.

Motor to my electrolux centralvacuum has burned out .Is it a good idea to just replace motor?


Replacing the motor yourself voids the warranty on the motor (1 year). You can take it to an authorized Electrolux (now Aerus) service center and let them replace generally for only the cost of the motor.
Replacing the entire unit will give you a 5 year warranty on the unit, including motor and fan assembly.
I don't know how old your unit is, but if more than 20 years you might consider replacing it due to updates in the other components and potential of them becoming obsolete.

The brush wont turn


Make sure that the carpet selector is on carpet setting not bare floor. It only spins on carpet setting. If carpet setting is engaged and still doesn't work you need a new clutch assembly.

Hello,
I would advise you to ALWAYS to FIRST UNPLUG YOUR VACUUM before beginning any service procedure. The Beam Central Vac may have more than a one year factory warranty and it sounds to me that you may have a bad relay switch the Central Vac, if you do it should be covered under the factory warranty. Otherwise, you may have a bad supervalves or a wire came loose, if the hose switch turns on the power nozzle then it may be a bad supervalve or a bad relay and to contact the installer or the manufacturer of Beam. So if you need further assistance, please feel free to contact your local vacuum cleaner dealer in your area or in the yellow pages, or contact the factory phone number or website to further assist you with your questions.

Electrolux central vac problems


I work on many types of units. If you electric floor brush runs but you have no suction then there is possibly a problem with the relay board that allows you to turn on the suction from the hose handle. This is a low voltage (24 V) switching loop circuit that will cause the 120 V motor in the unit to run.

Inside the wall valve are two brass pins. NOTE: there are 120V valves installed on some systems known as a Super Valve. A shock hazared exists if you work on that type of valve. That being said. In the round portion of the valve you can use a garage hose that has a 360 deg. chrome ring to test the valve. The ring completes the circuit causing the unit to power up and suction at the end of the hose. If the suction is weak, there is a colg in the pipe. If you hear no airflow, the relay inside the unit did not energize or the motor is bad.

To test: go to the unit and turn the switch on the side to "manual" if the unit turns on the motor should be ok. DO NOT RUN THE UNIT without and open valve. In some brands dammage to your motor will occure.

If the unit did not run, look for a small button near the switch. This is a circuit breaker for the motor. If it is poped out and you hear a "click" when you press it in there is most likely motor problems and someone should be contacted for repair.

Hope this helps!!
