Question about Electrolux UltraLux 2000 Bagged Canister Vacuum

1 Answer

The motor running the beater bar on ny Electrolux canister vacuum cleaner runs intermittently. It runs about 2 minutes and then cuts off and automatically starts again after a 1 to 2 minute interval. I have tried taking it apart and removing the dust and grit in the beater bar attachment but with no change in operation. What would you suggest?

Check all the wiring connections to make sure they're tight.
1/2. Wiring to power nozzle motor or reset switch is loose.
1. Cord from power nozzle to upper wand. If the plastic portion of the wand is cracked near the cord connection, or the connections are blackened, they need replaced.
2. Wiring connection from hose handle to upper wand. Check for cracks and discoloration as in 1 above. Replace if necessary.
3. Hose connection to vacuum. Not likely, but possible.
4. There could very well be a break in the hose wiring.
You may need to take your vacuum, with hose and power nozzle, to an authorized Aerus Electrux service shop. They can try a new hoze to see if that's the problem. If there is a break in the wiring, the hose is probably worn in other areas as well, and should be replaced.

No suction; beater bar works. Motor does not seem to be running.


This model has a complicated trouble-shooting procedure that needs to be done by an authorized Aerus Electrolux service tech.
This is often caused by a bad relay board or a Triac. However, problems in wiring or swswiches, including the hose wiring.
I stress that this must be done by an authorized Aerus Electrolux service tech.

The brush on my Electrolux Versatility will not spin. You can spin it by hand, but the motor will not spin it.


Hello, W/D here.
Since the brush will not spin, but the motor works, either the belt has come off of the motor shaft, the belt is worn past it's useful life, or the beater bar has seized.
1. Turn off the power (unplug).
2. Remove the bottom plate. With the plate off, use your finger to test the tension of the belt. It should be tight, and roll when you roll the beater bar by hand.
3. Remove the beater bar and belt. Inspect the beater bar, particularly by the bearings. Remove any twine, hair, etc.
4. Inspect the belt for abnormal wear. If there is any significant wear in the belt, replace it.
5. Reassembly is in the reverse order. Place the belt on the beater bar. While holding the beater bar close to it's position, place the belt on the motor shaft. Rotate the beater bar bearings to their proper position and install the beater bar. Replace the cover plate.

Best regards, --W/D--

The power to rotate the beater bar only works half the time..it seems to be very positional. In the past I could get it to work, now it just won't turn. Have tried the re-set button . Expensive vaccum...


Is the power nozzle motor itself not working? If it's not, the problem could be the wiring, the switch, the vacuum power switch, the connectors from hose to machine, or the circuit board in the machine.
My best guess would be the connector from hose to vacuum. The vacuum connector are cheaply made and held in place by flimsy plastic.
If the pn motor is running, it's most likely a broken belt. Initially a worn or loose belt would cause intermittent operation of the brush. Replace it and the brush should work.
Depending on the part, your machine may still be covered by warranty. Check your manual or internet for warranty information.
If under warranty, take it to the store your purchased it from for repair or replacement.

Beater bar will not operate on carpet cleaner head


Is the power nozzle motor running? If not, press the reset button located on top of the power nozzle. If it is, then either something is caught in the brush or the belt is broken. Due to some difficulties in reassembling the power head correctly, I highly recommend this seemingly simple job being done by an authorized Aerus Electrolux technician. If the problem is something else, the tech can easily find the problem. Take the entire machine in to the shop to help the tech narrow the problem down.

My beater bar makes a noise and has a crack in the motor on the beater bar and is discolored--me thinks I need a new motor for the beater bar


Sounds like you're right. New motors are available at your nearest Aerus Electrolux store. They used to charge the same amount for selling the motor and letting the buyer install it, or for installing it in the shop. Worth checking in to.

Beater bar is not coming on- belt is on, canister is empty. Vacuum runs but no beater bar


Remove the beater bar and clean the debris from the bar and the end bearings. Remove the belt (remember how it is installed) and check it for any damaged areas. Make sure the bar turns freely before the belt is attached to the motor drive. Hope this helps!

Motor on the powermate keeps cutting in and out.


If your talking the motor on the beater bar, then chances are either when the beater bar was attached to the hose near where you hold it, it did not lock, and the connection is intermittent, or the cord has an internal break.
