I have a electrolux 2000 and my tube has a small tab that you push before it would let me release it. I had trouble getting it off as well. What I did was push the tab, Plasing one foot on the vaccume head holding it down while pulling up and twisting. I'm not sure if yours is attached the same way but this method worked for me. Good luck!

Hello, My Electrolux Oxygen motorized brush stopped working. How do I determine if it is the switch, a belt or something else that is causing the motor not to work?


Hey Lee,
We had the same problem and after taking it to a service guy who didn't even want to LOOK at the vacuum, it occurred to us to plug the powerhead brush directly into the handle and it worked! So, we were able to determine that the problem was the tube - not the brush.

We ordered a replacement tube.

Hope this helps.

The telescopic wand on my electolux oxygen is stuck. Any ideas how to fix or trouble shoot this?


Believe it or not, dish soap and water can usually free that up. the other cure is silicone spray and heat.

Failed telescoping tube lock. Will not release


It is stuck because it is full of gritty dirt. Like the guy said, don't force it, get a bigger hammer.

Serioiusly, you can use a hammer to tap along the handle to loosen the gritty dirt and probably get the parts to release.

thanks for posting at FixYa.com

Electrolux Oxygen 3 model 7020A contols not working


You need to replace the hose itself. The buttons in the handle a very cheap and go bad all the time.

Remove hose from handle on old electrolux canister


BE careful here. Do not fish a coat hanger in the handle.
The original hose has a set of detachable handle componnets.There are two metal screws in the underside of the hand grip.Do Not pry. Once removed go to the suction dial area underside of the grip. Observe the plastic fingers near the dial. These must be reset in their " track " when reassembling the handle.
Gently insert a small flat screwdriver between the rubber wiring contacts and the plastic tongue wraps around the socket. this tongue which extends from the hose handle adjacent to the metal tube. Work you way back to the hose area carefully separating the "hand grip cover" from the hose handle itself.
Once apart remove the obstruction. Carefully clean the two brass rings looking for any pitting. If pitted, gently polish by rotating fine wet/dry sandpaper around the rings, then lube with vaseline.
The matching contact fingers on the handgrip cover should be cleaned as well and gently tensioned to put a bit more presusre on the contact rings.
Slide the handle ONLY onto the hose. Once in place the contact rings will be visible. Now you can work the handgrip cover back into place starting with the two tabs at the hose end below the contact rings. To seat the small fingers at the control valve gently click into place before reinstalling upper handle screws.

Power head stops and starts


Sounds like there is definately something stuck inside it. You;ll need to dismantle the floor head carefully using a screwdriver. Make sure your machine is switched off though if it is a power head and not an air turbine turbo head. Once inside check the main roller brush as well as the side caps as these can become clogged. Also check the main dirt channel leading to the pipes of the vacuum. 
Dont forget to rate, thanks.
