Dear Judy, there are several things that can cause the problem you are having but I can give you a few things to look at. First is that you are getting the correct belt for your machine. Second is the motor and brush roll moving freely after you install a new belt & before you start vacuuming?. Third is the machine set at it's lowest setting(try a higher setting to start) finally is the belt an after-market made in china one. Quality in Chinese rubber products can suck at times. If all this is ok than it maybe best to take to your local vacuum repair shop. Good Luck-Jack of all trades bob

My electrolux vitesse pet lover 1800w has stopped working

Is the flex all right? Check it with a voltmeter or a continuity meter (available for a small sum in your local hardware or electrical shop).

Electrolux Vitesse Pet Lover 1800w. I was given this vacuum today. It works fine but is really loud. It's hardly had any use. Is this normal? I just put in ear protection.

Should not be that loud. Check all the filters and see if they are ok. Check to see what the suction level is. This is kind of subjective. IT might have a bad bearing in the motor.

I need to know how to get in to replace the belt...

The belt replacement can be done in just a few easy steps.
You're going to want to turn the vacuum on it's side to access the base of the unit. Unscrew the bottom of the vacuum and remove the brushroll. Make sure to remove any string or clumps of dirt that could have caused your old belt to break. Stretch the belt with the brushroll until it can be put into place. Secure the bottomplate back into place. That should do it!

Electrolux vitesse pet lover 1700w. Keeps cutting out and electrical sparks in front vent

Hi there SmartAlec from here. I am sorry to be the bearer of bad news but if you can visibly see sparks and its cutting out then i would say that the motor brushes are nearly worn out. On this particular vacuum cleaner they are not sold as a spare part so i think it would need to go to a repair center for a new motor or to vacuum heaven for a replacement.
Regards Alec

I have a velocity pet lover 1900 only 2 months old

You have broken the rubber belt that drives the brush. Flip over and remove the old belt and replace it with a new one.
