Question about Electrolux EL1000A2 Pronto Bagless Stick Cyclonic Vacuum
I have a brand new Electrolux Pronto 2 in 1.
The front end roller/sweeper only works for about 2 minutes and then it stops and the roller indicator light goes off.
Nothing is wrapped around the roller. Is the roller driven by a belt and motor or is it operated by suction? Other than that it works great.
I notice if I dump the small amount of dirt picked up in 2 minutes that is starts working again. Is this a defective machine? Roz
After 3 years my Pronto slowed down and needed new batteries. I just replaced all 8 internal batteries. It cost just under $30 with shipping and took 1 hour of soldering. If you're not handy with a soldering iron, don't attempt it. All of the batteries are soldered together in series. You need to order the 8 (4/5 Sc size, 2000 mAh) Nickel metal hydride (Ni-MH) batteries with tabs. The source I used was www.BatteryJunction.com. Here's a link to the battery page: http://www.batteryjunction.com/tenergy-45th-sc-1-2-2000-tabs.html
PS The vac now runs GREAT!

I have used a pronto for a few years, and it is slowing down. I suspect battery failure. Does anyone have experience replacing the batteries? hacking or buying? thx

Thanks Russ125. Identifying the battery and count helped me out a lot and saved me some time. I found 4.5 amp batteries for slightly less $ per amp here:
My wife loves this thing, so I'm going to try your solution when the batteries come in.

I had a similar problem. The roller would turn slowly and stop after a short time even though there was plenty of power. I had to disassemble the entire head to get at the problem. Long dog and human hair and long sewing threads had wound themselves into the roller bearing space on the drive end. This was not visible by just taking out the roller. The belt must be removed and the belt pulley carefully removed. Then press out the roller ball bearing and remove all the wound up detritus binding the drive spool. Reassemble carefully and most likely it will work as good as new. It is a long job, about an hour and there are a few hidden screws so be careful. Good luck!

The wiring diagram shows 2 motors, so the brush roll must have belt and motor. But there is no parts break down, so you cannot get internal parts for this. If this is new, then it should be under warranty, I would take it in to a warranty shop and have it checked out.
