    Please clarify model. If this is older than 5 yaers your motor and or brush roll need to be removed cleaned and lubricated.Something is binding inside generally due to hair and dirt at the end of the brush roll. Do not continue to run the head in this condition

Yes, you can fix you power nozzle. Just look at the parts diagram at the following link: http://evacuumstore.com/s-90-el7020a.aspx
This should help you find the part you need.

SOURCE: carpet rollers dont work

Hi There,

Yes, there is a reset switch on your Electrolux. This particular model also has some problems with the wands on the machine as well. Sometimes these wands will short out, preventing the power nozzle from working.

Try pushing the reset switch first to see if this fixes your problem. The reset switch is located on the power nozzle on the right hand side if you're looking down on it. It will be a little red pole, simply push this pole downwards, possible using a ball point pen is the easiest way.

If this didn't fix your problem, then it could be a few different things. The wands on your model are problematic, and should be the next thing that you test. Simply remove the wands from the power nozzle, and you can use a simply electrical tester purchased from Home Depot, and put the testers into the female receptacles on the end of each section of wand to ensure that power is getting down to the brush.

It may also be that your hose has gone bad. If you test both wand sections, and no power is getting through, remove both wand sections and test the female electrical connections on the end of the hose handle.

If you're not getting power here, this indicates that your hose has gone bad and needs to be replaced. We do carry all of the hoses for the Electrolux canisters, and most likely have the one for yours in stock. Please feel free to contact me if you need any further help.

Thank you,

Did you press the reset button? There will be a reset button either on the back of the unit just below the bulkhead or on the top side of the base.

Locate the reset button and press; this should allow the carpet attachment to resume operation.

Can I lift the vacuum beater bar higher up? Bought new carpet and would like it to push smoother!!! Bought a shag carpet


No. The Electrolux (Aerus) uprights are auto adjusting to the height of the carpet. Make sure the brush is spinning when the vacuum is on. If it's not, this will cause difficulty in use.

Seems to be sucking up the particles from the actual carpet, either the pad or carpet itself Help???


It sounds like there may be sand in the carpet. If you live in a sandy area, this is not unusual. Walking on the carpet will cause the fibers to rub on the sand and eventually be cut through. The vacuum is strong enough to pick up these fibers, but not the sand that's causing the problem. I recommend buying a vacuum that has enough suction to pick up the sand. One that you don't have to replace every couple years.
My recommendations would be: Aerus (once Electrolux), TriStar, Filter Queen, or Royal. Avoid any that have plastic fans, as the fan blades will wear down fairly quickly with sand being vacuumed.

The Power carpet sweep attatchment when plugged in runs on and off intermittitly. (Cuts on and off) It has barely been used What is wrong I don't see any loose wires


Try pushing into valve just a little more. If that doesn't solve the problem, it's probably a loose wire in the hose, wands or power nozzle. Could be the circuit breaker in the power nozzle. Contact your installer or a local vacuum cleaner repair center.

You have a problem with the electrical switches. If you are comfortable with this, take apart and double check internal wiring to make sure nothing was frayed, or disconnected. Make sure it is unplugged. If you know how to operate a multimeter, you can use it to check continuity in each switch.
