Lubrication for powerhead motor
\015 I have an old ap 200 canister type electrolux with power head. The motor on the power head does not turn freely, it overheats and shuts off. I frequently have to use the reset button after letting the motor cool. Does the motor require any kind of lubrication? Do any other parts of the power head require lubrication like the beater bar itself? \015\012Thanks for your help,\015\012Bryon\015
The power head motor dose need service first thing you should do is take the top cover off by removing the screws on the bottom of power head then remove brushtroll clean brushroll and the end bearings make sure they spin freely squirt some lube (wd40n or tri flow) on the end cap bearings . Then clean motor by blowing it out with compressed air lube bearings with either wd40 or tri flow that should free up the motor and brushroll

I have a Filter Queen Majestic 360 and am having problems with the powerhead. There is a loud rattling noise in the powerhead, especially when I vacuum thicker carpet. I have replaced the motor, roller brush, and belt, but the rattling remains. It sounds like it is coming from the roller brush area,and when I turn the powerhead over, it rolls free and sounds fine. Any thoughts?

I replaced the powerhead drive belt. Now (2 times) while vacuuming the powerhead motor appears to run backwards. Because the metal pully which has left hand threads on it will backout / unscrew it self. Prior to this belt rerplacement it functioned properly. Thank You Bob

Kenmore progressive canister vacuum model 116 52612205, I have power and suction but the powerhead motor doesn't come on to run the brushesdo you have a solution
The motor in the power head ran at a higher pitch for a for 8 to 10 seconds then stopped. If I push the reset button the powerhead may or may not start or it may start and run for a few seconds. The brush is not caught.
Did you check the belt? A broken belt results in lower strain on the motor, causing it to run faster resulting in the faster speed and higher pitch. This could result in overheating, which will cause the motor to shut off.\015\012If this isn' ... Electrolux C101 Bagged Canister Vacuum
I have a bosch bagless jet 12 amps/1450 W which I got secondhand. the switch to operate the powerhead (the rug brush) no longer gives me any results. I don't have the right tools to unscrew the plates and look for a belt. I don't think it's a belt problem anyway because I don't hear the powerbrush motor turn on, either.
