Hello. My name is***** can help you with your question. This is usually the result of a belt that has either broken or worn. The belt goes from the motor to the spinning brushes and it drives the spinning brushes. If the belt does not turn with the motor, then the brushes will not turn at all. You'll find the information about the replacement parts on your Electrolux at the following page:http://bitli.es/Y5BIcq Please let me know if you still have questions. I appreciate moment of your time to rate my level of service at your convenience. Thank you.

Hello Michael, I have taken it apart several times and its not broke or doesn't look worn at all. I reached back and felt the little bar that spins and spins the belt and it's not spinning either. The motor is running but little bar is not spinning to turn the belt. I hope i'm making sense. lol
Small Appliance Technician: Michael Hannigan, Engineer replied 2 years ago
Okay, then it sounds like the shaft on the motor is not turning. I'm not sure what model Electrolux you have, but attached a picture of a typical motor where you can see the shaft in the pulley. Usually, there is a bolt on the and of the pulley that holds that pulley to the motor shaft. So the motor is turning in the pulley is not you may need to reattach that pulley to the motor shaft in some way.
