Question about Vacuums

1 Answer

I have an electrolux genesis upright vacuum that I bought used about 8 years ago. It has been A great vacuum the best I ever had. I thought the belt had come off so I took it in for repair. They called today and said that the brush rotor motor was bad and it would be around 148.00 dollars to repair. My question is could I buy the part and have my husband replace it or would it be too complicated. Can you still buy an electrolux vacuum comparable to this one and how much are they. I love this vacuum but dont know if it is worth paying this much to fix it.

I think your hubby can fix it if he has tools and is fairly handy. In your place, I would go into Craigslist and look for that specific vacuum or one that someone is scrapping for parts. Failing that, you can buy new motors at evacuumstore.com. I think they're about $35-$45. They have a live chat and toll free phone #. Unfortunately, they might ding you with shipping costs.
Good luck

That the bottom plate off, check for a clog in the inlet. If clear, then you probably have a clog in the handle tube. You will have to take the handle loose to clean it out. It may also need a new belt if you haven't changed it for a while, they stretch.

Belts can look ok, but after a short period stretch so they won't turn the brush roll under load, if you have never changed it, and if it is a flat belt, I would try a new one.

Most vacuums you either remove the bottom plate, or the top cover comes off. If no screws on the top cover, then turn vac. over and remove the screws on the bottom. Then you should be able to get to the brush roll and belt.

SOURCE: Suction/Brush not working

Hi there SmartAlec from NelsonVacuums.com.au here.
There are a couple of common reasons that your electrolux vacuum cleaner would appear to have lost it's suction. The first and most common is that it has actually broken a belt. If the belt is broken the brushes won't spin and it will not pick up dirt. It is easy to test simply turn the vacuum on, release the handle (as if you were about to vacuum carpet) and lift up the head and see if the brushes are spinning. If not i can supply you with a new belt.
If the brushes are spinning then your next most likely cause is that there is a blockage in the vacuum somewhere. Test this by turning machine on and checking the suction at the hose (as if your were going to vacuum the couch) if it is poor then remove hose and fish out blockage. If it is ok you may have a blockage between hose and the brush of the vacuum.
If it is neither of these problems i can trouble shoot over the phone if you live in Australia 0269215200 or by email nelsonvacuums@netspace.net.au
Happy Vacuuming.. :)

Turn vacuum upside down on flat surface, remove the 6-7 screws from the bottom of the power nozzle, lay it on it's side and pry on the two accessible internal tabs to pop top cap of the nozzle off to access the pn motor assembly. Lay flat on it's back again and remove the screws that hold the roller brush in, remove the roller brush, remove old belt, install new belt on brush roll and pn motor geared spindle, push brush roll back in place, replace screws and pn top and VOILA!..you're back in bidness!

Can't find the belt # for an electrolux genesis upright, serial number u 75344 p


The best place to get a genuine belt is the local Aerus Electrolux store. They're the only place to get a genuine belt without going on line. Most of their uprights use the same belt, so the store should have it on hand. I do highly recommend allowing their technician to make the switch as the power nozzle can be a bit tricky taking apart and reassembling.
To find the store nearest you, follow the instructions on the following site.

I bought my bissell quicksteamer about two years ago and recently i tried to turn it on and it makes a really loud sound and kind of smells like something is burning


Sounds like you could have a belt problem.
If you go to this URL http://www.bissell.com/assets/0/132/134/228/9367721b-1131-4a4c-b8fc-a7ceef5728e4.pdf go to about page 8 and review what is necessary to replace the drive belt. I suggest you replace the drive belt and at the same time clean as best you can the brush that it drives, you will have to remove the brush to change the belt. Remove all foreign debris and add some WD40 at each end of the brush between the brush and the plastic holders. Turn the plastic holders so they move freely around the brush and reassemble.
If you find this solution to be of help, I would appreciate a Thumbs Up rating from you. Regards, Paul

I have a 15 yr old electrolux genesis upright vacuum cleaner that I can't get the roller out, to replace the belt.


There are two small screws at the end of the brush roll on some of these. There is a bearing block recessed into the housing at a slight angle to help tension the belt, so it comes out at an angle as well. It often fills with grit and you must clean the grit out carefully without damaging the blocks or housing. Sometimes WD 40 helps is the area has any rust build up. Then work a large screwdriver under one end the brush for leverage being CAREFUL not to damage the brush housing. Do not soak with WD40 as it will also get into the brush roll bearings

Beater bar Belt Removal from Upright Electrolux...
Posted by wrenn on Jul 14, 2008
I am trying to change the belt on an Electrolux Model 1717 Upright Vacuum and I am having difficulty disassembling the vacuum to remove the beater bar and belt.
Hello,
I would advise you to ALWAYS to FIRST UNPLUG YOUR VACUUM before beginning any service procedure. . Normally there are screws, clips or levers that would remove the bottom plate or if that does not work then the top cover will come off and that will expose the belt. Once that is off and the belt is exposed then cut off the old belt and then lift up the brushroll on the pulley end and install the new belt around the pulley end and re-install the brushroll. Then use a belt puller or a screwdriver with a bent right or left end to stretch the belt onto the motor pulley and then track the belt in a straight line and reverse you steps in the reinstall of the top cover or bottom plate. So if you need further assistance, please feel free to contact your local vacuum cleaner dealer in your area or in the yellow pages, or contact the factory phone number or website to further assist you with your questions.

Posted by inoubliable on Apr 24, 2008
My Electrolux is about 3 years old. Never had any problems with it until recently, it is LOUD. It doesn't seem to make a 'normal' running noise unless it butts up against a wall, furniture, etc. trying to vacuum is like being on a jet runway. Is something clogged? Does it just have issues from not being used for about a year? (Last house had no carpet).


Hello,
I would advise you to ALWAYS to FIRST UNPLUG YOUR VACUUM before beginning any service procedure.
It sounds to me that you have a broken fan, in every vacuum I have seen with the loud noise such as you described, it has been a broken fan or fan blade and is in need of replacement. You can try to do it yourself but I suggest going to your local vacuum cleaner dealer for service with the problem. Remember, a suggested belt change if the belt is flat would be 4 to 6 months and If you have a geared belt the belt change would be one year or better depending on wear factor. So, if you need further assistance, please feel free to contact your local vacuum cleaner dealer in your area or in the yellow pages, or contact the factory phone number or website to further assist you with your questions.

Vacuum problem


I bought a dirtdevil 8 years ago and it's still going. As long as the motor works then you have check to see if the brushroller turns. If not then check the roller belt (take the cover apart some have screws or lock tabs on bottom panel near wheels) If the suction is low then check the vac bag, also with bag off, turn on the vac to check if air comes thru.If not the inside tube is clogged(plastic bags, small objects, ect.)Also when you open the bottom panel to check the roller belt, check the flex pipe that sucks up to the vac bag(unclogg it).
