Question about Electrolux EL7020A Oxygen 3 Ultra Canister Vacuum Cleaner Bagged Vacuum

2 Answers

The roller brush will not stay on-& the cord rewind is stuck on

Roller brush works sometimes... one of the circuits must be broken. Does the upright Oxygen 3 have a reset button? The cord re-wind is always wanting to rewind....a little annoying...The activation lever is stuck "on".
Thank you. bjswdgirl in Portland, Oregon

    Power head works intermittently. I took it apart and reset button doesn't seem to have a spring to spring it back. Electrolux already replaced one set of wands since they shorted and melted the plastic around the connections. I suspect a broken wire but have no way to test that theory. Any suggestions?

    The roller brush motor cut on and off. I tool it to an apliance repair shop where they repaired the wiring, although they had to freeze the connection between the handle and the roller. The symptoms came back, and the shop tells me that all the sections of the handle have burned connectors. This in a fairly new $500 vacuum. I'm still trying to find a solution, but I will never buy another Electrolux.

    Reset button is for the sweeper roller. It is popped out (the button). I removed the roller, cleaned, reinstalled. Button won't stay in and roller won't turn. Belt is on and all moves freely. Help!

The wiring connections in the wand are burned   this can happen when disconnecting while machine is running      try by eliminating one of the wands!

There is a reset on the power head, does the wand fit tight in the neck of the power head, if not you may have a problem there, either the wand or the neck. If the lever is stuck on, then it is jammed or broke, maybe a spring is out of place, in any event the canister will have to be taken apart to see what the problem is.

Our floor brush does not work, any help please


Hi, I wrote the following tip for someone very late last night.I don't know if they ever saw it, so here it is just for you. I hope it helps.
This problem is most often caused by a broken brush roller belt. Sometimes, although very rarely, there is a separate motor which turns the brush, or there may be something that is causing brush roller to bind so that a belt does not last long. I don't know what your situation is but I'll give it my best shot. Lets just assume the most common problem (97% of the time) and that it is a broken belt,
FIRST: UNPLUG THE VACUUM CLEANER. Write down the model number of the machine so that you have it with you when you purchase a new belt.
Set up an area to work and lay down newspapers to do this job as it can be messy. Or, of course, if you do it on the carpet, you can vacuum it up when your finished
Normally to remove the brush roller and install a new belt most vacuums will have some way to gain access. Either there are:
a) Screws on the top of the roller sections that if you remove them you can tip the cover up so that you can remove it. Sometimes there are cosmetic caps over where the screws are. or
b) Screws on the bottom of the roller section so that you can remove them, then a cover, and then the brush roller itself.

When you have the roller exposed, remove it carefully and take note to observe the parts and how they are oriented. This will help with the reassembly process. Often the brush roller is a simple one piece unit, but it pays to keep track of your work.
1 Remove the broken belt.
2 Remove the brush roller.
3 If there are any carpet strands wrapped around the roller, remove or unwind them. If there is material that is causing the roller to bind which is caught in the ends of the roller, of course, remove them as well.
4 Reinstall the roller with the belt loosely wrapped around it so that the other end of it can be put around the motor shaft that turns it. This step may be harder than it looks and you may need a lot of strength to wrap the belt around that shaft. It depends on the design of the unit. Sometimes it is alternately easier to put the belt around the shaft first and then put the roller into position.
5 Once the roller and belt are in their final positions, Re-assemble.
6 Before plugging the vacuum cleaner in, Check to see that the Roller will turn without binding.
You will need to use some force because you are turning the roller itself and the motor via the belt. So it does not need to turn easily but it should not be stuck. If it is stuck, for any reason, when you turn the vacuum cleaner on you will burn up the new belt with plenty of smoke
to make things exciting and stink up the house.
7 If the belt is not binding then plug the cleaner in and test it.
All should be well,
Hope this helps,
Best Regards,
Mark

The main roller will not work


Check for a broken belt that drives the roller. Remove the roller brush and clean as best you can. Add some WD40 at both ends of the roller brush between the brush and the pieces that hold the brush in place. Turn by hand to be sure the brush moves freely. Reassemble making sure the belt is on properly.

I got a cord wrapped around the roller, and now neither the roller nor the suction work...only hot air coming out the top of the base.


To unrap the cord from this vacuum you will have to do the following:
First turn the vacuum upside down and place head on counter and handle on the floor. You will have remove the base plate. There are 3 screws that hold it in place. Since cord is wrapped around the brush roller you will not be able to take it all the way off, but it will give you access to the brush roller. If the belt is still on the brush roller, I suggest you cut it, so you can lift the brush roller out of the base and that will make untangeling the cord easy. If you need a new belt here is the info on that.

Power on. Roller brush will not turn. Belt is not


Hello,

Sometimes the belt can stretch and cause the to not turn. If this is the case, the belt will have to be replaced. Also, make sure the roller brush is free of any debris.

Here is a link to a site with illustrations that will guide you to change belt and/or access inside of your machine.

Hope this helps.

Check the wheels and axles for damage or bent shafts. Remove the bottom cover and inspect the brush roller for damage--breakage of the roller, bad or broken end bearings, missing brush sections, or something stuck to the roller like a wad of gum or something. Hope this helps!
