Powerhead no longer working

The vacumm works great except today when i was vacuuming the main powerhead shut off and isnt working anymore. I turn the switch on but only the light comes on. The bristles underneath are not working.

How can i fix this.? is there a belt or something that needs to be changed?

If you can hear the power nozzle motor running, but the belt doesn't spin, it is most likely the belt. You will have to get the belt from an Aerus dealer or a Vac shop. If you want to put the belt on yourself, you can. There or five or six screws on the bottom of the power nozzle that need to be removed and the cover should come off. Once the cover is off, you will see the belt and how to change it. Good Luck!!

Is there power at the head, have you checked with a volt meter, most likely if not then the cord to the head is defective.

The powerhead on my Hoover Duros will not keep running. If I push the on/off switch it will come back on sometimes, other times when I push it it turns the whole thing off as its supposed to do.


I just had the same problem with my hoover duros, the vacuum was running fine but the powerhead kept going off. I would make a sweep with it and powerhead would be running and then next sweep powerhead would shut off. I had tried checking connection and belt, etc. I thought it was the powerhead. But then I found the problem. On the duros there are 2 pieces of wands that hook powerhead to hose on canister. They both connected and clicked in fine but I decided to check them separately. I hooked just one piece to hose and powerhead and then turned it on and then I did the other piece. ta-dah! that's what it was...it was only one section of the wand. When I hooked them up separately, one piece the powerhead worked totally fine and vacuumed like normal. When I removed that piece of wand and tried the second piece (actually the bottom section when both are hooked together) the powerhead did not work at all. So I just need to get a new section of wand. Hope this helps!

You have done very well keeping this appliance working since 1975!!!
Lucky you!
I'm not certain you would be able to get replacement parts for this model any longer,
Maybe you will just have to continue with the powerhead only.

Looks like there's an interchanged wires in your vacuum. Both the motor and the powerhead must go together. Check it up. Leave the
motor wiring connection intact. Just tinker and check the powerhead
wiring connection .

Vacuum will not shut off


Sounds like you have wires crossed at the switch. The 2 wires coming in go to the center posts, 2 to the power head & 2 to the main motor.

Powerhead Keeps Shutting Off


Open up the power head and check the toothed corners where the power head sits - it sounds like thread has caught up at the sides which can only be removed by opening up the powerhead to clean it.

Power nozzle don't work


I don't know which model you have or how old it is, but most models have a cord on the hose that plugs into a receptacle on the main machine. Sometimes they can look like they're plugged in when in fact they're just barely hanging there. You could also check the cord at the powerhead. Because the cord flexes with the motion of vacuuming, the cords can break inside. Wiggle the cord while the machine is running and if the cord is defective, the powerhead is start and stop. On some models, there is a switch on the hose handle to turn the nozzle off and on, and these are prone to failure. Also, there should be a reset on the top right hand side of the nozzle, but if this kicked out, it indicates a motor or electrical problem and should be addressed by a service person. If your powerhead has this reset, it's possible that the reset is sticking. Push it down a couple of times and see if that helps.
