Roller/sweeper on my Electrolux Pronto

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

    The Electrolux works for a short period of time, around 30 minutes, and then does not work anymore.

    We could not fix it.

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 Here's a link to the battery page:

PS The vac now runs GREAT!

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.

Changing belt on electrolux precision vacuum el8805

Remove the cover plate over the brush. some simple pull or drop down. What ever. Once exposed, the brush (Roller) will need to be pulled away from the frame sides. The brush ends are generally inserted in to plastic or rubber end plugs and must be pulled away from the case. Once away, the belt; is in one piece needs to be removed. One end is still around the vacuum motor shaft. Lit that off and discard it. Place a new drive belt at one end around the motor. Pull it down and attach the other potion to the brush roller and press the roller back in place. There is little movement of the Belt, and it must be tight, thus you may need to use e screwdriver to lift the roller in place.

How to fix series 3500 upright vac

With vacuum laying flat with back facing up, remove the 5-6 screws from the bottom of the nozzle, turn on it's side, and pry into 2 slots on either end of the bottom of the nozzle to release the top cover. Lay vac flat on the floor/bench face up, remove the 2 small screws on either end holding the roller brush in place. Pop the belt end of the brush roll out of place, place new belt in, and simply reverse all previous instructions. With 30 yrs. experience dealing almost exclusively with the original Electrolux, I have a legitimate store front business and do service by mail at a reasonable cost if interested.
Hope that helps! Mick

There is a filter inside the main filter. Once that filter gets clogged it will loose suction. Pull the filter and clean it, you can wash it by hand. Turn the unit roller side up and check for a small screw cover that you can use a dime to loosen. This cover is used to remove the roller unit. Once out check and clean then check the gear assy. for miss-alignment.

Lost manual on vacum need to replace belt

Remove the bottom cover of the sweeper head, then remove the brush roller along with the belt if still there. Clean the brush end-bearings--the roller ends and the interior of the bushings. Then oil the bearings lightly with 3-1 oil or similar. Place the new belt over the roller and the motor shaft adding any required belt twist (diagram on the casting), then seat the roller and bearings as a unit. Replace the cover and test the roller for running. Hope this helps!

Brush does not turn. suction with the handheld unit it fine but when used as a floor sweeper it hardly picks up anything

these stick mmachines do not have a tremendous amout of suction at the best of times but if it has a full bag, or full dirt container, or dirty exhaust fiters it will take away from the air flow as well. take a flashlight and look up in to the tube of the floor attachment to see if you can see something blocking the tube.If there is no obstructions it may have a roller bar that spins on the bottom , so turn it over and turn it on and if it has a roller bar and it is not spinning it probably needs abelt . If there is no roller bar and no blo0ckage chances are it is just weak at the floor tool as the air a further to travel all the way up from the floor so it takes away from the air flow again. good luck.

The brush on ours wont spin

Take out the brush roller. (turn the plastic lock mechanism with a coin or screwdriver, pull out the plastic holder, and the brush will pop out). The brush roller has two white caps on the ends. Chances are, one or both of these caps have moved out just a bit, putting too much force on the delicate motor. Simply push the caps back firmly into place. Make sure the brush and the surrounding area is clean, put back in and It should spin .
