    The soft black bristles are for carpets and rugs, and the stiff brown bristles are for scrubbing.

    Fyi, Electrolux Corporation, the manufacturer of your Epic Floor Pro triple head cleaner, changed its name to Aerus LLC in 2000 when it sold back the Electrolux trademark and brand to its original parent company, AB Electrolux of Sweden.

    Here is a link to the similar Floor Pro Epic user manual:

    Go to to locate an Aerus dealer for assistance, sales, parts, and service. Also, if you'd rather have an Epic Floor Pro manual, Aerus will provide a free pdf copy of one on request.

    Btw, be sure to use a high-sudsing dry foam shampoo such as Aerus's Turbo Shampoo, Kirby Suds, or the Franklin brand.

Can you hand-shampoo a car's fabric headliner and fabric seats with the Lux shampooer?

You can use the shampoo and a soft bristle brush to do so, but due to the size of the Floor Pro, no.
If you happen to have the Little Pro from years ago you could use that on the seats, but I don't recommend it on the headliner.

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.

What does the belt tension feel like? Is it possible that the new belt you fitted is a bit too long (and starts to slip as soon as it encounters any real resistance). Any more methodical diagnosis is going to depend on observing which bits of the machine are still moving, and which aren't when the brush roll is stuck. Gather this information with caution, as it's a good way to lose a couple of fingertips. A.
