The rotating sweeper on my Electrolux Discovery II isn't turning. Can I assume there is a belt that needs to be replaced? Also, how do I get at the sweeper unit to replace the belt? Finally, where can I find a replacement belt? Thanks!! Dewey

SOURCE: Electrolux 1572E (Discovery II) How to remove

Remove the handle assembly by taking the big screw out and pull up on the handle. Remove the four screws where the top half connects to the bottom half. Two on the outside back and two on the inside front where the bag goes. You'll need a long phillips #2 screwdriver. Always have the power disconected. Pull up on the bag housing while twisting it side to side.
Good luck after you get in.

SOURCE: the bagless rotor does not rotate/sweeper does not rotate

There is no rotor inside the clear container that turns on a DC07. The stuff spins due to the shape of the airflow. Perhaps your cyclones are completely clogged. you can clean them yourself. see this video http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2OO3ugkyzxk

SOURCE: how do i get into the electrolux discovery II

There are two square holes on the outer side of the wheels. Use a flathead screwdriver in these to release the latches. Turn the powerhead over and carefully lift the back of the cover off and pull back slightly to lift off. To remove the brush and/or replace the belt, remove the tiny screw on each end of the brush and lift brush out.

Does the electrolux discovery 11 have a filter?


The Discovery II was manufactured in 1986 originally and remade a few years later. The earlier ones did not have any extra filters but can be added like the later ones. There\'s a pre-motor filter that can be added and an after bag filter kit available as well. These help to keep the "fine" dust to a minimum and are helpful to any allergy sufferers. Hope that helped!

Bristles quit rotating and smelled like something was burning. It isn't the belt that turns the bristles. Can't afford a repairman, can you help me fix it?


Belt can reamin intact but still jam and burn. It won't necessarily break. I suggest you remove the bottom of the vacuum where the bristles spins and where the belt is located. You may have something jammed in there. You may need to remove the bristle to get the belt out. Inspect the belt and replace after clearing the obstruiction.

How to remove brush cover of discovery advantage upright vscume cleaner


Lay vacuum on table or other surface on it's front.
Remove the 4-5 screws on the base plate.
There may be a rectangular hole on each side of the wheels. If so, insert a standard screwdriver and rotate gently to release latches.
Carefully hold the halves together and turn vacuum onto it's back.
Lifting from the back, remove the power nozzle cover.

If replacing the belt or brush, remove the screws located at each end of the brush. Lift brush out and remove belt.
You can no replace the belt, brush, or both. I also recommend giving the insides a good cleaning before reassembling. Make sure when you reassemble, insert the lip of the cover into the slot, then close the back. Some gentle manipulating may be necessary.

The carpet sweeper on my electrolux stopped working....used it for a little bit and then it just stopped


Make sure the brush is cleared and clean, press the reset button, and try again.
If the motor runs, but the brush doesn't turn, it's likely due to a broken belt. Have it replaced by someone who knows what they're doing.
I strongly recommend taking it into an authorized shop.

Have an electrolux 2100 canister vac, it has lost suction power thru the years. no clogs in newer hose or in sweeper. even with new bag, filter and belt only increases power minimally.


Have you ever over the years replaced your brushroll ? Have you tried dropping a coin thru the hose from one end to see if it comes out the other end ? Have you taken the wand loose from the elbow ( the swivel part of your carpet sweeper) to see if there was a blockage ? Does the motor make a strange noise ? Have you ever had a tune-up on your vac.
You might think about taking your vac to your Aerus/Electrolux shop.

There is no suction to the floor sweeper. The


Sounds like you have two separate problems here.  If the brush bar does not rotate, probably the belt is broken. This is easily replaced, but you need to be precise about which model you've got so you get the right belt.
Loss of suction is due either to a blockage or, quite often, to a split in the short length of clear plastic hose that leads back from the brush bar enclosure.  Repair is possible but replacement is better.
If you need more help, post here again.

Kirby generation3 instructions,


Hi there!

If you are talking about the main sweeper attatchment, Lift the light at the front of the upright machine, Make sure the belt inside the sweeper it is over the hook when you turn the handle on the front anti-clockwise to "belt off". Turning handle raises belt.
The hooks at the bottom of sweeper go over the bar at the base of the body. It helps to lift the wheels slightly.
When hooked on, rotate handle clockwise to "belt on" and close the light cover.

Is this solves the problem , please take a moment to rate as Fixya! If you need more help, just ask again on this question.
Thank you.
