Question about Electrolux EL7020A Oxygen 3 Ultra Canister Vacuum Cleaner Bagged Vacuum

1 Answer

Oxygen 3 Ultra powerhead replacement parts?

Hello,  I own an Oxygen 3 Ultra that has had some hair caught around the belted end of the roller brush.  I cleared the hair out just fine and it happened again but this time the hair wrapped around the black nylon roller retainer (for lack of its proper name).  This eventually melted due to friction and the brush no longer runs as the retainer no longer has the guide that holds it in place.
The repair to get this working again is minor but I can not locate the parts.  While I can find replacement roller brushes and entire EL5 housing I can't find replacement retainers.  Where is there a good source for such parts?  Is there a junk yard of Oxygen 3 Ultra's somewhere to pick through?  Thank you.

    Same thing just happened to mine. This vacuum works great, but from the hose down, is a piece of ****. I've replaced the hinged powerhead coupling four times already because it broke.

Why doesn't brush roller rotate?


The ends may be clogged with debris. You will have to remove the brush roller and remove one end cap to disassemble the roller for cleaning.

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.

Burning rubber smell when turned on. checked the belt-is ok.


Take the bottom off as if to change the belt and remove the brush assembly from the VAC. Take the ends off the roller and clean out the string and hair and whatever is wrapped around the end bushings and reinstall. Should free-up the roller Brush and stop the resistance on the belt to motor shaft. Or your belt is streched out and should be replaced, they don't always have to Break to be bad.

My brush will not turn, and the brush control is stuck on "off"


I have had problems with the belts on my Mach 5 overheating (smell of burning rubber) and also with the motor overheating and shutting down.
I learned the hard way that one of the issues might be that the roller/brush on the bottom of the unit has a metal bearing inside the roller/brush that can become clogged with hair (both human and pet hair) which effects performance of the unit.
It’s fairly easy to fix.
Lay the vacuum on the floor so that you can see the roller/brush. Then remove the phillip head screws that hold the protective plastic plate over the roller/brush. (There are about 6 screws that hold this plastic protective plate in place) Also, you will be removing the (1) screw that also holds the plastic plate over the belts. There are (2) belts that you can remove and when in doubt replace these (2) belts for around $9.00.
Once you have the protective plastic plate off that covers the roller/brush disconnect the belt is around the roller. Take the roller and cut off any hair that is wrapped around the roller. Next, grab the roller by each end and twist the ends caps and (1) of the ends will unscrew. Once you have unscrewed one of the ends remove any hair or dust that is trapped under this cap. (Be careful not to lose the small metal washer that sit on top of the bearing)You will notice under this cap is a metal bearing that can become clogged and jammed with hair. The hair should come out fairly easy and allow the brush to spin fairly easy once you have screwed the end caps back in place test that it spins freely. If it doesn’t spin freely replace the roller/brush with a new one for about $23.00.
When you put the belts back on the thick rubber one (Belt # 40201-271) has probably become stretched and should be replaced for about $3.00. The small diameter belt that goes over the roller/brush probably does not usually need to be replaced and does not usually fit very tight. I have heard that people will take the small roller/brush belt and turn it upside down to get a better fit.
I just did this on my Mach 5 and it runs like a new machine. I did end up replacing the roller/brush head.
Hopefully you will find this useful.

Self propel not working, burning smell


Flip the vacuum cleaner over and check the roller brush. Is it full of string and hair? If so, unscrew the four phillips-head screws holding the plate on that covers the roller brush; pull out the brush, and cut off/clean off all the hair and string. Replace everything and try running the vacuum. Alternate solution: perhaps the belt that makes the brush go around is broken. If so, follow the above steps to remove the roller brush, then replace the belt.

Hi Dave.

Ok you need to lift belt end of roller up, so that you get the roller straight then lower roller down so that both ends go in at same time down.

Use a large flat screwdriver to help lever roller up from belt end & watch your fingers (Ouch).

Belt not turning


It could well be the dog hair. You'll need to remove the roller brush and completely clean it off with the hair which sounds like it has wrapped itself around the brush and the brush end washers. Check that the entire roller brush is completely clear and if any dirt is found at the sides, remove it.

Vacuum Roller making a loud noise


Your roller brush is starting to fail. If you unscrew the ends, you will find a lot of hair wound around the stem. You probably have a warped plastic end the holds the bearing. This is my problem now.... I am looking for a new roller brush as I write this. I found one for $30. Good Luck.
