Sounds like you have two separate problems here.  If the brush bar does not rotate, probably the belt is broken. This is easily replaced, but you need to be precise about which model you've got so you get the right belt.
Loss of suction is due either to a blockage or, quite often, to a split in the short length of clear plastic hose that leads back from the brush bar enclosure.  Repair is possible but replacement is better.
If you need more help, post here again.

SOURCE: In Carpet setting, the vacuum brush does not spin

I put 3 turns of electrical tape around the area of the beater bar that meets the vacuum belt. This solved the problem short of replacing the beater bar.

SOURCE: MY WIFE BOUGHT THIS FOR ME FOR FATHERS DAY GIFT

This unit uses a turbine assy to turn the brushes. The brushes could have something jamming them. Remove the brush unit, it is held on 2 spring hooks 1 on each side. The brush unit is driven thru a 1/4" square post, only one brush is driven and it drives the next then it drives the next etc. If something is jammed in these gears it will stop the entire brush assy. The turbine assy could be bad, but I would check the brush assy first.

Precision model EL8802...hard to push, sits too low to carpet


An upright cleaner that is in good condition and working properly is always hard to push on loose laid carpet as it is designed to suck the carpet clear of the floor firmly against the mouth of the brush housing. This is so air is drawn through the carpet to aid dust removal and so the brushbar can make full contact with the carpet.

Precision model blockage


No solution but we seem to have the same problem it is as if the valve isn't working. Please don't tell me to check for blockages.

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

No suction when using wand on electrolux precision upright


There is a ball valve between the wand hose and the base hose. It can get stuck in the "base" mode, which won't then redirect suction to the wand hose. There is a spring under the cup that the open end of the hose rests in. When you release the wand from the holster with the one-touch quick release, that spring pushes the cup up and turns the ball valve to the wand setting.
  1. Unplug the vacuum.
  2. Using the one-touch quick release, remove the wand from the holster.
  3. Verify that the wand "cup" is indeed in the higher position. Do this by pushing on the bottom of the cup with your finger. It should easily depress.
  4. Remove the wand hose from the main unit using the quick disconnect feature. Put your fingers into the hole and feel to the right. You will feel the closed valve, verifying that it is stuck in "base" mode.
  5. Using a screw driver, insert the tip at the TOP of this valve and gently pry it downward. This shouldn't take much force.
  6. Reassemble the hose wand using the quick connect feature and reholster the wand.
  7. Plug in the unit and verify that the base unit has suction.
  8. Remove the wand from the holster and verify IT has suction.

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,

My electrolux O3 carpet power head keeps shorting


If your unit is like ours, there is a electrical short in the wand to Hose connection.. dont use it.. ours unit shorted out and sparks were everywhere.. burned thru the wand to the inside of it and the outside. Good thing my lovely wife wasn't touching that part. electrocution risk was Extreme. PESTER ELECTROLUX, they drag their heels when it comes to admitting and making it right.

Vacuum not picking up dirt


The neck in your power head is likely clogged. Disconnect from the wand and look inside. Also check the wand.Since you have suction on the bare floor the hose is likely not blocked.

Electrolux oxygen vacuum


WARNING WARNING Danger danger Will Robinson! The power head "wand" and the hose from the body of the vacuum have shorts in them. While my wife was using this machine.. she started smelling plastic.. seeing whitish smoke and then sparks... The pin connector arc'd through the plastic... Some research on Google found that this has been a large problem for Electrolux, when i tried to call the factory.. robots.... no solution. Then I contacted a distributor and they informed me that it was not really that big of a problem. Only later to say, that they had replaced ALOT of them. My unit was past its warranty period so I just hardwired it. (now the unit is only two pieces, body and hose w/wand.)
