My upright electrolux persicion vacuum when turned on just makes a horrible sound both on bare floor and on carpet brush does not turn

Hi, sounds like you need a new belt or brush and bearings . Sometimes when a belt goes it makes a bad noise as one of the belt teeth make be worn out. Hope this helps.

Makes heavy vibration noise when turned on for carpet and belt is good

Check the brush roll and the end caps to insure the brush roll is spinning freely. If there is wear or damage to the brush roll it can cause it to be out of balance and vibrate

Can I lift the vacuum beater bar higher up? Bought new carpet and would like it to push smoother!!! Bought a shag carpet

No. The Electrolux (Aerus) uprights are auto adjusting to the height of the carpet. Make sure the brush is spinning when the vacuum is on. If it's not, this will cause difficulty in use.

The motor on my carpet tool (beater brush) stopped running yesterday. The main vacuum still works, but the switch for the carpet tool just clicks and doesn't turn it on.

Knowing the model would help.
Possible problems:
Broken or disconnected wire in hose, connections, power nozzle.
Hose needs replaced. Check all connections for discoloration and cracked supports. Have power nozzle checked at a vacuum shop. Depending on the model, take it to an authorized Aerus Electrolux store for this.
Bad power nozzle motor Needs replaced.
Bad switch. Take the whole machine in for thorough check and repair..

Beater bar will not operate on carpet cleaner head

Is the power nozzle motor running? If not, press the reset button located on top of the power nozzle. If it is, then either something is caught in the brush or the belt is broken. Due to some difficulties in reassembling the power head correctly, I highly recommend this seemingly simple job being done by an authorized Aerus Electrolux technician. If the problem is something else, the tech can easily find the problem. Take the entire machine in to the shop to help the tech narrow the problem down.

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:
