To troubleshoot Electrolux vacuum cleaners, we discussed some of the problems.

Electrolux Vacuum Cleaner Brush Won’t Spin

Ensure that the brush roll motor receives power by first testing the power switch for continuity. Ensure the motor can turn freely and is unobstructed if the power switch has continuity.

Check to see if there are no obstructions and debris around the motor (like possibly strangled pet hair).

If the motor is getting the power and it turns freely, but it still won’t run, check to make sure it has no obstructions and debris.

Inspect the hallow cogged belt to see if it is broken, stretched out, or out of place. If the cogged belt is broken or stretched out, replace it.

Electrolux Vacuum Cleaner Motor Isn’t Working

First, make sure the fan motor has power, by testing to see if the motor turns on when you switch it on.

If the power is getting to the motor then check to be sure there aren’t any obstructions that block airflow.

If the power is getting to the motor and air is flowing freely then re-evaluate your fan wheel movement to be sure it’s not worn down or broken.

Ensure that the motor brush gets power by checking the power switch for continuity.

If the power switch has continuity and you’ve confirmed that it is working properly, indicate that you need to check whether or not there are any obstructions present inside the fan’s blower wheel.

If the obstruction is determined, proceed to clean them out of the pusher mechanism using a degreaser solvent and compressed air.

This can be done by removing parts so you can get into a tight spot or just spraying it onto what you’re working on while rotating parts to avoid over-spraying.

Electrolux Vacuum Cleaner Won’t Pick Up Or Suction

The exhaust filter on a vacuum removes dust and other unwanted particles as the air travels through the machine.

If this filter becomes clogged, it will make it difficult to maintain suction because there won’t be an adequate barrier between the air being sucked in and the various dust particles that might otherwise litter the casing of your machine.

So as you can see, ensuring that your vacuum retains its suction is a very important part of properly maintaining your vacuum cleaner. To clean out your exhaust filter, refer to your owner’s manual for instructions.

Unplug the vacuum hose from its power source, then remove the hose from the appliance. Stretch out the hose so that it is straight and stands on its own without drooping or sagging.

Shine a bright flashlight into one end of the hose, and look through the opposite end of the vacuum hose.

If you can see light shining through easily as opposed to being blocked by an obstruction, then this indicates that your vacuum hose is not clogged or obstructed in any way.

Electrolux Vacuum Cleaner Belt Keeps Failing

The brush roll can become stuck if there is a lot of hair, string, or lint caught in it. This puts more strain on some of the belt’s moving parts.

It will also cause it not to turn as freely as it used to which will ultimately decrease its functionality.

Removing the brush roll and cleaning out all of the debris that is currently causing it to get stuck should help restore smooth operation again. You can try using this method too if you haven’t yet.
