  • If too many fibers are caught in the electro brush shaft, they may interfere with the operation of the appliance - in this case, the visible symptoms are the diodes in the vacuum cleaner's soleplate going out, and the electric brush not making any sound (only the operation of the vacuum cleaner's engine can be heard). Releasing the electric brush roller by cleaning it allows the device to continue working without interruption
