There is no drive belt on this model - its a cylinder pull along model.
If there's a problem with the turbo brush you can flip open the base of it by removing the screws, check that the toothed belt is in place and there is no clogs of dirt between the turbine and the brush bar.

Hi Karen. Chances are your cord has a kink in it which is preventing it from coming all the way out. Pull the cord out almost as far as it will come and then twist the cord one way or the other and pull to get the kink out of it. Once you have it all the way out you can start closest to the machine and smooth out the entire cord to be sure that the kinks are more or less permanently gone.

You will probably have to replace the cord winding mechanism. I have never had any luck trying to repair one. Cord retracters are great when they work but it seems like they always go bad before too long. On many units you can't even replace the cord if you get a bad spot in it, you have to buy a new cord reel which can get expensive.

SOURCE: How do I repair my
First, try standing vacuum on it's back end. Gently pull on cord and release. Try this a few times.
If this doesn't work, you'll need to take it to an authorized Aerus Electrolux store and let the service tech repair it. Although it's relatively easy to disassemble, reassembling correctly is trickier. I've had several machines come into the shop disassembled because the owner couldn't figure out how to put it together again.
Also, when taking the cord rewinder apart, there's a risk of breaking tabs that hold it together.
