Electrolux el7020a brush motor wont run

Have two good motor heads... Neither work on this vac. Suction level & on/off works fine. All the contacts on both ends of the hose have been cleaned & lubed. each lead has continuity and each control button on the handle register when pushed. (I suspect I need to know how to get inside to the control board).

    ALL i can tell you is, I got throughly disgusted with my problem ,which was the same as yours. I ordered all new parts had to return them. I gave up! I think your absolutely right,problem is definitely in the control panel. Was not worth fixing to me. I think this Electrolux model really sucks! It's not even a true Electrolux.

Take the cleaner apart and make sure that the wires are all hooked to the on and off switch that got to the beater bar that is the main part of the problem improper wireing

Testimonial: "No... but thanks. There are no switches other than those on the hose assembly. The machine has faithfully served for many years and never been previously tampered with. We have an upstairs EL7020 and an identical unit downstairs. The reason I opened, inspected and lubed the HOSE contacts (three screws on control end, one screw on the on the brush end) was because the upstairs unit became intermittent. They were indeed linty & dusty... but did not change the hose assembly electricaly. The problem is absolutely in the canister. I have already found and eliminated the possibility of the glass fuse on the Suma board 1180136. Thanks again for your interest and best regards"

Testimonial: "I have two good power heads ... neither works (and the parallel wired head-lights do not come on either)... that is why I was into looking for something obvious on the control boards (1180136 and 1180110)... The fuse has continuity and looks good... but thank you very kindly for the interest. I do appreciate it."

SOURCE: EL7020A ELECTROLUX VAC SHUTS OFF AFTER 10 MIN

The symptoms you describe are typical of a vac that has a blockage (hence poor suction). It cuts out because it's over-heating. You need to check the hose, the filters and anywhere else where something may have got stuck. Blockages are often caused by things like paper clips, but can be caused by something as apparently harmless as a piece of paper which gets stuck and then debris builds up behind it and causes a log-jam.

Hello, My Electrolux Oxygen motorized brush stopped working. How do I determine if it is the switch, a belt or something else that is causing the motor not to work?


Hey Lee,
We had the same problem and after taking it to a service guy who didn't even want to LOOK at the vacuum, it occurred to us to plug the powerhead brush directly into the handle and it worked! So, we were able to determine that the problem was the tube - not the brush.

We ordered a replacement tube.

Hope this helps.

Beater brush is good, vacuum running no suction


this sounds like your vacs dust passage from the rotary brush to bag is blocked ? you can diy this if you turn vac over to show the brush and covering cover you will see cover is held by some screw/bolts ? remove these and cover then the brush assy is slotted in place either side on bush/bearings and the drive belt is around the brush memorise how it fits! then gently/carefully lift brush out the belt will create spring action once brush removed you will see where the dust travels thro an arpeture on the belt side of vac this usually is where blockage is clear it out and any other within the area of brush then reassemble and check vac

Brushroll in electrolux oxygen+ deluxe


Is the brush roll not working at all? Check the teeth at the sides of the brush roll by opening up the electric head. If it has completely been destroyed you may have to buy another new head for it. Separate brush rolls are difficult to obtain and work out more expensive sometimes than the electric heads themselves.
You may have to contact the Electrolux cust services in your own country. Check by Electrolux.com

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!!

Lack of Suction


There are actually several possibilities.

Check to make sure that the brushroll is spinning. The brushroll is responsible for virtually all of your pickup on carpet, and is the culprit for most complaints of "lack of suction."

If the brushroll is not spinning, listen at the head to see if the motor inside the power head is active. If you can hear it running but the brushroll is not turning, you have a broken belt. If the motor in the power head is not turning at all you may have an electrical short in the hose, the wands, or the main power outlet from the body of the canister; but before you get too involved check the power head for a thermal reset button. Some of the Electrolux powerheads are equipped with these, and some are not, so check your user's manual. If there isn't one, or if it isn't tripped, you'll need to look for electrical issues.

In this particular model it is fairly common for the electrical contacts on the wands to short out, so inspect the metal contacts to look for scorching, or melting of the plastic around them. If you have access to a VOM, check for voltage at the contacts on the end of the wand, and if it is not present, check all of the contacts sequentially back to the canister body to determine which part is not passing voltage. If you have voltage all the way through the wand, you either have a loose connection inside the power head, or the power head motor has burned out. If you have power from the canister body, but not through the end of the hose, either your hose has a short in it, or the circuit board in the handle assembly that controls the power head power has shorted out.

If your brushroll is turning, then you do, in fact, have a clog somewhere inside the power head, which a visual inspection behind the brushroll and into the elbow will confirm.

Best of luck,

-R
