Question about Electrolux Guardian Bagged Canister Vacuum

Electrolux Renaissance power nozzle turning on and off, brass pins hot

My Renaissance vacuum recently started to do several strange things. First the power brush began randomly turning on and off while vacuuming, almost like there was a loose connection. At the same time I also could feel warmth through the plastic tube at the point where the hose handle connects with the first rigid tube that goes to the power nozzle. When I separated the handle and tube the brass colored pin was so hot it seriously burned my finger. I took the entire nozzle apart and didn't notice anything wrong, everything is clean and in good shape, motor and brush spinning fine, the brush assembly and belt were replaced about a year ago. I put everything back together but the power nozzle continues to turn on and off at random.

Now, in addition to the power nozzle problem, the entire vacuum will randomly shut off by itself. After turning it back on it will sometimes stay on for several minutes before shutting off again, or it might immediately turn itself off. Sometimes after it turns off, the red light next to the off button will blink (not the bag change light).

The hose is not obstructed. Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks.

    I have a similar problem. However if I have the power head disconnected and bang on the control (nozzle) handle I can get the unit to shut off. I'm guessing there is a problem, loose connection, in the control handle. Any suggesttions?

    My Renaissance was turning off after only a minute or two of being turned on. I took it in to the dealer who said it was the electronic circuit board in the power nozzle. Is there anywhere to buy one direct without dealing with the dealer who kept changing his price? I haven't been able to find one online. Does the power nozzle for the Guardian work for the Renaissance?

    EL8505 brush will only spin at certain handle positions. There are no brush hindrances and the belt is in good conditions. It feels like there is a good vacuum.

The deal with the Renny is that it runs off of circuit boards. Usually the problem of the main motor shutting on and off is caused by one of the Triac boards located inside the canister. Another problem could be the thermostat wire located on the inside of your motor itself. It's almost never the thermostat, so the triac board is most likely the issue.

As far as your power nozzle goes, the head eminating from the swivel body is in most cases due to an older design of the power nozzle. I would suggest investing in a new elbow assembly that includes a new swivel body as well as newer style of wiring that is proved to reduce arcing and heat production within the power nozzle.

In some cases, fixing the power nozzle will fix the problems you are experienceing with the main motor as the arcing happening in the power nozzle can in fact turn off your machine. So investing in a new elbow assembly for your power nozzle could in fact solve the problem in its entirety.

Electrolux Vacuum Renaissance Power head brush won't turn


if it is making a humming sound but not turning you belt is broken, if it is not check the reset switch (little res button) if that doesnt work check the connections between the cord of the powerhead and the wand, the wand and the hose, and the hose and the vacuum
give the hose itself a good look over sometimes the wires up by the grip break in the casing

You might not believe this but i don't know how to turn it on. I thought it was on the power nozzel but It is just got an orange light on. I know this sounds silly but please help me.


The on/off switch is located on the hose handle. The "O" is for off, "I" is vacuum only, and "II" is for vacuum and power nozzle. The light below the switch indicates there is power to the vacuum.
If your vacuum doesn't run, there are several things that could cause it. Refer to the manual, or take it to an Aerus Electrolux store for help.
If you need a manual, you can download one from the following site, under older models.

Will not come on electrolux cannister renissance


The Renaissance and a few other models require a series of steps in troubleshooting, done in specific order, to diagnose the problem. The vacuum, hose, wands, and power nozzle need to be taken to an authorized Aerus Electrolux shop for this. The service manual is only available to the service techs, and franchise owner.
If these steps aren't followed, additional problems may result.

Things you can check include:
1. Afterfilter. This is located beneath the on-board tools. Open the access door to the tool holder by pressing latch at front of door. Squeeze clips at the front of the tray and lift to remove. If the filter is dirty, replace it. Turn vacuum on and see if it works.

2. Check for clogs in hose, wands, and power nozzle.
Disconnect hose, hold one end up, and drop a coin in. Lift end of hose so that the coin drops out. If it doesn't there's a clog that needs cleared. You may be able to do this by attaching the hose to the blower hole, placing the other end into intake and holding it there, and turning on the vacuum. If this doesn't work, it will need to be taken to the Aerus shop for clearing.
Visually check wands for a clog. A clog in the wands can be cleared with a broom stick or similar item.
Visually check the power nozzle from the bottom and the wand connection. If no clog is seen, try dropping a coin into the wand connection and seeing if it drops through. A clog here can be cleared using a wooden spoon handle or similar blunt stick.

How do you replace the 'after filter' in the electrolux guardian?


1. Press latch and open the door that covers the tools.
2. Squeeze clips at front of tool tray, lift and remove.
3. Remove filter.
4 Replace filter.
5. Replace tool tray and close door..

Instructions can be found in the Renaissance manual, which you can download from the following site. Go to "older models", find Renaissance and click on it, then click "download". Instructions are on page 9. The Renaissance is basically the same model as the Guardian.

Electrolux renaissance bag is light and vacuum stops and the change bag light comes on


Mine is doing the same thing, well it was. I sat it upright and it seems to be working fine... there is no blockage in the hose, the bag is clean... only thing I can't change is the filter. Maybe that is the problem, it doesn't seem really dirty though. I'm thinking perhaps the unit was too hot, hence having to be turned up right... makes it a little harder to move around but it is running at that is all I care. Hope this helps

Hello, My Electrolux Renaissance is about 12 years old. It worked great for years, but now it keeps turning itself off...about every 15 seconds or so. The bag was just changed recently, too. Is there...


Odds are you have an obstruction somewhere. Check all of the hoses and the power head to ensure that there is nothing blocking your airflow.

Also note that if it keeps popping the front bag door open, that's usually indicative of either the bag being full or not being installed properly, which can give you the same results, so try taking the bag out and popping it back in just to make sure everything is aligned correctly.

No power when I plug into outlet

Hello,
I would advise you to ALWAYS to FIRST UNPLUG YOUR VACUUM before beginning any service procedure. You may have 3 problems that I can see. You may have a bad electrical outlet, but I doubt it, the bad cordwinder cord or a short in the cordwinder itself, or a connection came loose in the motor section. If you need further assistance then contact your local vacuum cleaner dealer in your area or contact the Electrolux factory listed below. . So if you need further assistance, please feel free to contact your local vacuum cleaner dealer in your area or in the yellow pages, or contact the factory phone number or website to further assist you with your questions.
