There is a main motor to gear drive belt and a smaller cogged belt to drive the brush/beater bar. There is no reset switch, but make certain the motor is turning the belt and not broken, By using flat head screwdriver,pop the side plastic piece up and off the base unit and visually see what is happening when the power switch (not heater ) is turned on. You say the belts are hooked up?? Meaning that they are tangled?

hooked rugs produce the highest amount of friction opposing the brush rotation, which can over heat the drive motor. try using a height setting that raises the brush so that it barely touches the pile. If this issue has been going on for some time, you may need to replace the drive motor.

Now that I just fixed my Lux Legacy canister vacuum, I need help on my other Electrolux Regency Series upright! The vacuum works fine but the rotating brush does not work and the brush motor does not turn...


There are a couple rectangular holes on the bottom of the power nozzle, beside the wheels. These have tabs in them that need released with a standard screwdriver.
rogerpotts_10.jpg Once they release, turn the vacuum over and lift cover of power nozzle at the back. This pulls the front of the cover out of the lip on the "bumper".
Once this is done, you'll need to unscrew the screw at each end of the brush. Lift the brush out and thoroughly clean it, including the ends.
rogerpotts_9.jpg
Check the wiring to make sure they're connected to the terminals of the motor. Also, check the belt for wear and tear. These belts can last for five years or more, but if it looks bad a good time to replace it is while you have the power head apart.
When reassembling the vacuum, ensure the belt is fitted properly around the motor shaft and brush.
Insert the front of the cover first, ensuring the edge fits neatly beneath the lip on the bumper all the way around. It takes a little manipulating to press the back into place. Make sure both tabs click into the locked position. Turn the vacuum over and reinstall screws. Try to rotate brush by hand a few times.
At this point, plug the vacuum in and turn it on. If the power head doesn't run, press the reset button. If the power head motor still doesn't run, it could be due to loose or disconnected wires that lead to the reset switch, a bad reset switch, or even a bad motor. The vacuum needs to be taken to the nearest Aerus Electrolux store for further diagnosis and repair.

BELTLESS BRUSH WILL NOT REVOLVE


I bought my parents the exact same model. Do you have the floor select switch "ON" for the brush? Did the overload protector switch trip? There is a little red button sticking out from the right hand side of the head. Check to see if it is pertruding past the cover. If so, push button in and it should reset.

I have a wind tunnel vacuun and the roller will not turn


There is only one motor which turns the turbine and brush. Therefore, if the suction from the turbine works check the belt by removing the bottom plate of the vacuum and look for the belt attached to the brush roller or if only a piece of the broken belt is inside the unit. If the belt is attached and intact look for a mechanical switch to turn on and off the brush and make sure it is not on bare floor or off. Look on one of the edges of the brush assembly for the clutch which is attached to the mechanical brush switch with a rod. The clutch will close and open when you move the mechanical switch. If you cannot turn the brush unit by hand you may need to remove some objects such as string or hair from wrapped around the clutch or brush.

Brush wont rotate


Without known the type or model of the vacuum you can only check a few generic design futures.

Belt and lifter getting hot right away on start up.


Hello,
I would say that it is definitely running backwards. I have a guide to replacing the power switch that outlines the reassembly of the Kirby and tells you which carbon brush wire plugs into which hole on the power switch. Each carbon brush has a letter (B or O) and the same two letters are on the switch to help you get the wires back on right. (the "B" attaches to the "B" and the "O" attaches to the "O") Here is the link to the guide and I hope it helps,...

Brush roller won't turn


On my Dyson, there is a brush reset button on the top right hand side (if you are looking at the front) that you can press to reset the brush. I was vacuuming and too lazy to move a toy and this worked for me once I freed the rope from the brush.
