Having problems with your Electrolux C101 Bagged Canister Vacuum ?

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.

Answers :

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.

Err5 When charging the battery, it starts out flashing amber, but after several minutes it turns red and the err button flashes five times. The troubleshooting says to hold the buttons above and below the power button for ten seconds and this may resolve some software issues. I tried that but it goes back to the amber light then red again. I replaced the battery hoping that was the issue, but it still does the same thing.

I caught a shoe lace in my Dyson DC17; pulled it free, opened the brush/roller area and cleaned everything but the brush still won't work. Read somewhere that there is re-set button but the only one I found was to switch between the brush / sweep functions. Is there a fuse / connection / part that may need to be replaced?

I don't believe so. Keep trying the reset button. Sometimes the reset sticks. Hope this helps. ... Dyson DC17 Animal Bagless Upright Cyclonic Vacuum

On our Hoover U6445-900 (Mach 6.9) we replaced the small belt that goes to beater brushes in front of unit. Upon starting, the Hoover quickly got hot and smoky. We shut it off and looked things over carefully, but the second try also resulted in friction heat on the belt. Now it appears the belt may have stretched due to heat and the brushes won't spin. Any ideas?

Are you sure you purchased the right size belt..the friction you speak of is usually caused by a belt not being the right tightness or a jammed beater brush ... Hoover U6446-900 WindTunnel Bagged Upright Vacuum

My purple Dyson Animal (without the ball) isn't working correctly. When I turn it on, the red power light, as well as the medium pile buttons flashes. When I first turn it on, the brush rotates for 3 to 5 seconds, then once I start moving the vacuum, it stops and that's when the lights start flashing. I've checked the filters, they are dry and installed correctly. What could be the problem?

Model # 5770 the brush motor runs and shuts down after a few seconds...Turn unit off and the brush again will run for a second or two...If I don't turn unit off brush will not start up..Could it be the printed board..the motor brushes..or the wiring that goes from the printed board to the main motor...Thank you

When I vacuum w/ the brush control in the on position it make a really loud noise, almost like a grinding sound. I have looked at it and nothing seems to be wrong, but I notice that the pin that engages the belt seems to vibrate a bit, possibly creating the noise. It started when I accidentally got part of a plastic grocery bag caught in the brush. Could it have stretched a belt? Nothing is caught any other place and it only makes the noise when the brush in in the on position.

Yes, the belt could have been stretched and is now vibrating and hitting other parts and creating a noise if much of the bag got caught under the belt. If you have another belt for this vacuum, please put it on and see if the noise stops. If it does ... Hoover U5780-900 Windtunnel Cyclonic Bagless UprightVacuum

I was vacuuming my room and all of a sudden I hear this loud noise, then notice the roller brush isn't spinning. Thinking too much hair was caught I separated it from the rod and hose to clean it out, but noticed that the roller brush didn't move at all while I was cleaning it. I've cleaned the brush before and it would roll around with little effort, but this time I couldn't move it at all. After removing hair and string I put the vacuum back together and started it up, but the noise continued,

While using my Dyson a rug got caught and that ratcheting sound started. I removed all signs of strings, etc until the brushes rotated fine but when I started the Dyson the ratcheting started again. I have the DC 14 Animal.
