SOURCE: will spray from handtool but not from brush floor

Thanks to many others who have posted on similar problems -- water and/or solution sprays through the handheld tools, but not through the main machine.

As others have suggested, I removed the water reservoir, which exposes the 2 main water sprays mounted above the rollers. Using, pliers, I carefully slid the clips back. Gently but firmly removed the two red nozzles.

Elsewhere I have read suggestions to just do one nozzle at a time. However, I found out that if you remove both red nozzles, you can then blow through one side and it will come out the other. In my case, that dislodged a nice collection of crystal-like chunks (guessing it may be crystallized residue from the cleaning solution).

There was also a bit of blockage in one of the red nozzles, which I cleaned out. Make sure you can blow through both of them with little resistance.

Reassemble: Push red nozzles back into hoses. Using pliers, reposition sprung clip back over the red nozzle. Snap nozzles back into place. Refill tanks and power it up.

In my case, that resolved the problem of no sprays from the main machine. Sprays like new now. Hope yours does too!! e

Is a electrolux carpet beautifer model A69913Z used to clean carpets

Yes, what you're referring to as the model number is actually the serial number of this unit.
It is indeed designed for shampooing and polishing any floor with the correct brushes, etc.
It works EXCELLENT if used properly.
With 30 yrs. experience dealing almost exclusively with the original Electrolux, I have a legitimate store front business and do service by mail at a reasonable cost if interested.
Hope that helps! Mick

You can often find them on Ebay. Just look for Electrolux or Aerus Floor Pro brushes. You can probably also find them under Electrolux shampooer brushes.
You can purchase them from the Aerus site and they will ship to you:
Or go to and follow the directions for the dealer nearest you. If close enough you can pick them up at the store, they can deliver to your door, or they can ship if you live several miles away..

The plastic drive unit were the brushes attach have two of the four plstic ribs broken, this is the one located on the end of the motor, I will to replace

Electrolux Floor Pro shampooer and polisher (Aerus)

I'm not sure what your question is, but you'll probably need to take this to an Aerus Electrolux store for repair. They may not have the parts on hand, but can order them for you. While there, ask them to show you how to remove the brushes, or be sure to tell everyone who uses it how.

If the vacuum's motor doesn't make a noise when you turn the machine to the carpet setting, this means that most likely you vacuumed up something into the brushes that got stuck, and caught the reset switch to trip. Recline the handle down to the floor, and look at the top part of the agitator brush housing (the head of the vacuum that is on the floor) for a red colored pin. Push this pin down with your finger, and try the vacuum again.

If the lower motor however DOES come on, but the brushes don't spin, this is a clear sign that your agitator belt either fell off, or broke. If you remove the 5 screws on the bottom of the power brush, and separate the black lower housing from the top agitator housing, you can access the belt and brush.

Here's a link to the belt used on your vacuum cleaner, which is actually made by Electrolux for ProTeam:

I hope this was able to answer your question. If for some reason these two solutions didn't work, please just reply to the repair by using the comment box, and I'll be more then happy to answer any follow up questions.
