SOURCE: I have a electrolux Pronto 2 in 1 and the suction

There is a filter inside the main filter. Once that filter gets clogged it will loose suction. Pull the filter and clean it, you can wash it by hand. Turn the unit roller side up and check for a small screw cover that you can use a dime to loosen. This cover is used to remove the roller unit. Once out check and clean then check the gear assy. for miss-alignment.

Sorry I didn't see this sooner. Your problem may be solved as simply as pushing the small red reset button exposed on top of the power head when you tilt the arm back. Very simple. Hope this helps.

    Why doesn't brush roller rotate?


    The ends may be clogged with debris. You will have to remove the brush roller and remove one end cap to disassemble the roller for cleaning.

    EL8505 brush will spin at only certain handle positions. The brush is unhindered and the belt is in position and in good order. The vacuum feels like it is sufficient. When the brush is not spinning the...


    Many vacuums have a switch positioned somewhere by the pivot point that is pressed when the catch is released and the handle taken out of the 90 degree storage position. I haven't worked on an EL8505 but I have fixed a couple other brand / model vacuums that were behaving the same way you describe in your problem. In most cases it is either a perfectly good switch that had moved out of position because the framing it is supposed to sit in is broke or worn down or a bad switch that only works when the plunger was in just the right spot.
    The link is a parts blowup of your vacuum and I think A-26 is the part you need. It appears to have both the bracket and the switch in one part. Make sure where it mounts doesn't have any damage preventing it from staying in the right place and alignment.

    There is a light on the top that looks like a cord that is on. the vacuum hose attachment does not work. I just changed a bag did i do something wrong


    The light with a cord "plug" on it indicates that there is power coming to the vacuum. This is normal.
    Assuming that the vacuum works, but not the power nozzle, turn the PN over to view the brush. Clear all hair, thread, fibers, etc., that may be wrapped aroung the brush. Use a sharp knife or scissors to cut through them for ease of removal. Make sure the ends of the brush are cleared as well. Try the vacuum and press the reset switch on the PN. Does it work?
    Is the PN motor running, but the brush isn't spinning. Turn PN over and try to spin the brush. If it turns freely, the belt is broken and needs replaced. This should be done by an authorized Aerus Electrolux service tech to avoid incorrect reassembly and resulting damage to vacuum and owner.
    If the brush doesn't freely spin, but turns with resistance, this is normal.
    If it still doesn't work, try the Sidekick mini power nozzle that should have come with it. If it works, but the full size PN doesn't, there's a problem with the PN. It needs to be taken to an authorized Aerus Electrolux store for diagnosis (free) and repair.
    If the Sidekick doesn't work, the problem is in the hose, wands, or canister. It could be due to bad switches, wiring, and other electrical problems. In this case, the entire vacuum needs to be taken to an authorized Aerus Electrolux dealer for diagnosis and needed repairs.

    The brush on ours wont spin


    Take out the brush roller. (turn the plastic lock mechanism with a coin or screwdriver, pull out the plastic holder, and the brush will pop out). The brush roller has two white caps on the ends. Chances are, one or both of these caps have moved out just a bit, putting too much force on the delicate motor. Simply push the caps back firmly into place. Make sure the brush and the surrounding area is clean, put back in and It should spin .
