SOURCE: The brush on my Electrolux Versatility will not

Hello, W/D here.
Since the brush will not spin, but the motor works, either the belt has come off of the motor shaft, the belt is worn past it's useful life, or the beater bar has seized.
1. Turn off the power (unplug).
2. Remove the bottom plate. With the plate off, use your finger to test the tension of the belt. It should be tight, and roll when you roll the beater bar by hand.
3. Remove the beater bar and belt. Inspect the beater bar, particularly by the bearings. Remove any twine, hair, etc.
4. Inspect the belt for abnormal wear. If there is any significant wear in the belt, replace it.
5. Reassembly is in the reverse order. Place the belt on the beater bar. While holding the beater bar close to it's position, place the belt on the motor shaft. Rotate the beater bar bearings to their proper position and install the beater bar. Replace the cover plate.

Best regards, --W/D--

SOURCE: Brush assembly will no longer spin on carpet however the suction from the system is still good. Unit is only 5 years old.

Open and check for belt damage. Also make sre there isn't debris causing this error.

Belt around brush roller is worn, it spins freely when there is no pressure on it. But put it on the floor, the belt won't turn the brushes. I suggest taking unit to vac repair shop for new belt installation

My brush piece is corroded


El8807 - call customer service at 800-896-9756 push 1 or 2, then push 3. They sent me a new replacement, no cost. Need your Serial Number so they know date of purchase. 5 year warranty. Best vacuum ever, better than dyson and cheaper by 100%, but the brush stopped working after getting tangled. Called support and they replaced. Great. Cheers!!!

I have an issue with an Electrolux Precision EL8802 - I can't figure out how to access the belt. I have removed the bottom dust cover and roller, but the belt isn't visible and it's not apparent how you...


There is no belt. The brush is direct drive by a seperate motor. There is a motor reset switch that you use if the brush is not turning. If that does not fix the problem, you have to take the unit in for service http://manuals.electroluxusa.com/prodinfo_pdf/Edison/86668R4en.pdf

Burning smell


Something may be keeping the brush roll from spinning freely which may have caused the belt to break.

The red "!" icon is on when I turn on my vacuum


Button on CARPET, lower the handle for use, turn on power and the brush turns. Handle up like for storage, brush does not turn. Bare floor button pushed, does not turn.
