How do I change to different powers


Hi there, it's Jack at Dyson.

DC24's brush bar is powered by its own motor. This means the brush bar can be turned on for carpets and rugs, and off for hard floors or delicate rugs.

To turn off the brush bar, just press the silver brush control switch located next to the red on/off switch. Press it a second time to turn the brush bar back on.

Electrolux EL7020 SHUTS OFF Constantly!


That problem have 2 causes..#1 is loose electrical connection inside or on the power cord..#2 is worn out carbon brush inside of vacuum motor..

Carbon brush is the one of the most serviceable parts of a vacuum cleaner because our vacuum cleaner motor is very hard working parts so the brush inside will possible worn or not connected to the armature of rotor...

While using the power mate rug part I caught a small rug and the vacuum would no longer pick-up .


Check to see if there is a reset button on the head. This protects the machine for times like you described. When something jms up the reset button will turn ofdf th machine. Simply push the reset. Hope this helps, Chris

My Ultra Lux 2000 beater bar still does not operate even after following manufacturer's instructions, per owner's manual. The vacuum shut off automatically when I accidentally caught it on plastic bag.


Make sure all threads, hair, and similar stuff is removed from brush, then try again.
Did you try switching the power nozzle switch off then on?
Does the power nozzle motor run? If not, and you've pressed the reset button, there's another problem. It could be a bad reset switch, or loose wires. There could also be threads or hair wrapped around the ends of the roller. This would prevent the brush from turning and shut the motor off.
If the motor runs, but the roller isn't turning, it's most likely a broken belt.
There is the possibility of the motor having burned out, but not likely.

A definite diagnosis would need to be made by a trained service tech at an authorized Aerus Electrolux store. The one nearest you can be found using the below link.

BRUSH DOES NOT RUN


If the vacuum's motor doesn't make a noise when you turn the machine to the carpet setting, this means that most likely you vacuumed up something into the brushes that got stuck, and caught the reset switch to trip. Recline the handle down to the floor, and look at the top part of the agitator brush housing (the head of the vacuum that is on the floor) for a red colored pin. Push this pin down with your finger, and try the vacuum again.

If the lower motor however DOES come on, but the brushes don't spin, this is a clear sign that your agitator belt either fell off, or broke. If you remove the 5 screws on the bottom of the power brush, and separate the black lower housing from the top agitator housing, you can access the belt and brush.

Here's a link to the belt used on your vacuum cleaner, which is actually made by Electrolux for ProTeam:

I hope this was able to answer your question. If for some reason these two solutions didn't work, please just reply to the repair by using the comment box, and I'll be more then happy to answer any follow up questions.

If this was helpful to you, please be so kind and rate my repair, or leave feedback for me. This is really appreciated by the Fixya community.

Thanks so much!

Powerhead Keeps Shutting Off


Open up the power head and check the toothed corners where the power head sits - it sounds like thread has caught up at the sides which can only be removed by opening up the powerhead to clean it.

There is a no filter safety device part #1130912-01, maybe the new filter isn't in quite like it should be or this device has gone bad. Also check the brush roll and make sure it turns easily, if not then that could be the cause.
