If you have the power head with the headlight, squeeze the sides of the upper part (almost like a superstructure,) where the headlight is located. It should lift off, allowing access to the screws to get the powerhead apart the rest of the way, and on most models it even has instructions on how to replace the belt molded into the plastic.

Why is my power head not working


You either have a broken power cable going to the head or your canister isn't supplying power to the head, or the motor for the head it bad.

Hoover bagless cannister 3765 - belt on power head slips off spindle. bought new belts - same problem. is this a design problem or can it be fixed? I don't want to take it to a repair shop 100 miles...


I would not recommend a smaller belt. You will only wear the motor. This model series power nozzle needs to have a metal clip installed near the belt on the brush roller housing. I know that most of them left the factory without it. Remove the cover to see if one is ther. if not have your dealer send you a clip or a housing with one on it.

I have an Electolux Oxygen canister vacuum and the power head suddenly stopped working. It is only a few months old. Any suggestions.


1. You have to verify if it's simply the belt that has broken and the spinning brush isn't spinning because of it. Place your ear next to the top of the power head to listen for the power head motor. If electricity is getting to the head you'll hear the motor and know to inspect the belt.

2. If the motor doesn't run, look at the electrical pin connectioins in the pipe from the hose to the head. Are they burnt? If yes a new wand is needed. Also check the electrical connections in the hose handle and make sure they are not burnt.

Let me know if this helps

The brushes will not turn when on and cannot move them even manually


Drive belt has most likely broke and jammed inside the power head. Remove the bottom plate on the power head and replace the drive belt.

Royal 3050 power head does not run


The sounds like powerhead motor either burned up, or the belt broke and got tangled in the turning motor shaft. Pull the bottom off the power head and look for a curled up rubber band. If you find one, it's the belt.

If it's the motor, you won't hear it running when you turn the powerhead on.

Broken power head belt


Not sure which one you have, need complete model number. You can go tosears.com, click on the parts link, enter you model number, click on the powerehead link. A parts list will come up along with a picture breakdown of it.
Alot of them the part covering the light is just snapped into place, push in on the side andback to release it. Remove the 2 screws, use a flatblade and stick in the slot on each side from the bottom and pry up to release it.
The other type, you tak out the 2 screws from the bottom, then on the back and each side are release tabs that you pry out to release.

Euro-Pro head cranky


The air driven head is probably bond up and needs to be cleaned. Alot of the air driven ones have a belt that may be broken or stretched.
