Electrolux Z61a brush not rotating


There should be a rubber belt somewhere along that roller, probably in the middle, behind the bottom cover plate, Remove the plate. That belt may have just slipped off the motor shaft, but it may be broken.

The belt could possibly be installed in either of two ways. The motor shaft is not parallel to the beater bar (brushes), so the belt must twist to wrap around both the motor shaft and the beater bar. If it's twisted one direction, the beater bar will rotate the correct direction (as if drying to pull the vacuum forward). Twisted the wrong way, it'll rotate the opposite direction. Try it one way, then bump the power switch to verify that the brush is rotating the correct direction before putting the bottom cover plate back on.

Z61 brush won`t rotate belt ok


Hartlepoolke:

Unplug the vacuum, turn it upside down and remove the floor plate so you can access the beater bar. Remove the belt from the motor shaft and remove the beater bar and belt from the machine. At each end of the beater bar there will be a small circular bearing. Carefully remove the bearings from the ends of the beater bar, and remove the collection of hair, carpet fibers and any other junk wrapped around the bearing mount studs. Grab an old pan... (something to wash the bearings in) and an old toothbrush. Scrub the bearings with the toothbrush dipped in rubbing alcohol, and attempt to spin the bearings by hand as you clean them. When the bearings will spin freely, dry them out, and put a drop of oil (preferably 3-in-1 or light machine oil in the bearing. Don't soak the bearing in oil, that will just attract more junk to jam the bearing. Wipe the bearings off and rotate them to ensure that they aren't ratcheting or siezing up. Check the belt to ensure that the motor spindle has not damaged the inside surface of the belt... If it has, a new belt may be in order. Reassemble the vacuum and you problem should be solved.

I have Electrolux Versatility and have little suction power in the hose part,


Unplug the machine..now if you remove the attachment hose at the body of the vac and feel inside (to the right about an inch) their is a "suction cover" that rotates when the wand is removed (aka using atachments). The cover in your machine is NOT rotating correctly, so it does not get full suction. If you do get some suction from the hose then their is at least a 'small opening' because it has partially rotated. I was able to fix this problem by taking a large screwdriver (1.5 feet long, thick as a pen), inserting it into the small opening (on the suction cover, inside to the right at the top) and forcing the cover down all the way by lifting the screw driver up against the top of the body opening. Seems to have corrected the problem, but may reoccur. If you have NO suction at all then it has failed to rotate whatsoever, and Im not sure how to correct it.

picture of the suction cover part:

Beater not turning but belt good. beater motor not turning but turns manually


Hi Dan:

check both ends of the beater bar. Pet/Human hair, thread, strings and even dirt can really get wound up in between the plastic ends and the bar. It might look ok but it won't turn effortlessly. If you find that is the case, you might be able to fish the junk out but from experience it's just better to buy a new beater bar or roller part.

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--

I have lost suction in my versitility electrolux, it has a higher pitched whinning sound, I have replaced the filters and checked all of the hosing, it is all clear


You may want to check and be sure the beater brush is operating properly and that the drive belt has not broken. The drive belt can brake when the beater brush is frozen up.
Suggest you remove the beater brush and clean as best you can. There will be two rubber pieces on either end of the beater brush. Be sure these are loose enough so you can turn them by hand. Spray a bit of WD40 between these pieces and the beater brush and turn by hand to work the WD40 in. If you have to replace the drive belt, this would now be a good time to do it.

Vacuum turns on and suction in hose works, beater bar won't turn


If you hear the motor in the head running and the beater bar isn't rotating, you probably need a drive belt. With the power off, make sure you can rotate the beater bar freely by hand, if it isn't bound up.. then locate and remove the baseplate screws to gain access to the beater bar itself, you'll see a drive belt pulley system and chances are, a broken belt. Replace it with a new one by pulling the beater bar assembly out of the housing and plcing the belt onto the motor shaft pulley as well as the beater bar pulley.. nest the beater bar back into the holder and reinstall the cover. Hope that helps !
