Generally, there are two wires inside the unit which connect to the wiring going down the suction hose.  Since the unit is a/c...it doesn't matter which of them goes to which terminal.  The wires are switched in some cases.  Look for the open terminal.

When cleaning the machine, did you do a good job of cleaning the beater brush and making sure it turned freely in the holders on each end? Perhaps a bit of WD40? Also, a new set of belts might help a bit.

My kenmore quick clean vacuum cleaner has no suction. Just seems to blow the dirt out and away from the cleaner. The canister is empty and the filter is clean, so what's going on?


Hi,
The hose or hoses are plugged...take all the hoses apart and stretch them out... run a stiff wire through them or something like a broom handle...you will find that they are full of dust and dirt inside...

Power Head keeps cutting in and out while vacuuming???Canister motor keeps running but the power head starts and stops like there is a short or some loss of connection somewhere. Any ideas?


The electrical terminal at the top of the extension wand may be loose or corroded. Unplug the vacuum and remove the wand from the hose assembly. Look at the 2 prongs and clean off any corrosion using a a Q-tip or scrape with a screwdiver if it's more persistent. After cleaning reconnect the wand to the hose and try it again. If the prongs are not corroded, they might be loose instead or they might not be aligned properly. If this is the case then bending the prongs very slightly may help realign them. The part that may be giving you the trouble is called the terminal cover (PN 8191782). It costs about $10 but the problem is knowing the procedure to actually replace the part. CAN ANYONE EXPLAIN HOW TO OPEN UP THE EXTENSION WAND TO REPLACE THE TERMINAL COVER ??

Push the reset button


Sounds like a problem I had. However, I took the vacum head apart were the belt is to get to the switch that was sticking. the model # on this part is:

Mel Rain/littel fuse
742332
11200000-04
HOLD 2.0 A.
125 V.D.C. / A.C. 60Hz

I took the two connectors of and carfully removed the part. After removal I took apart with a small flathead screwdriver and reset but this is a quick fix and my vacuum begin to work again!

Vaccum has no suction


Here is what we did to fix the problem of our vacuum having no suction.
We unscrewed the three screws on the back and took the hose off of the vacuum.  Then we took the hose outside and put the water hose through the vacuum hose and turned on the water.  After about 30 second the water pushed through a dust bunny the size of a fist and a marker.  Basically, the vacuum did not have suction because the hose was clogged with dust, etc.  After reassembling the vacuum, it worked just fine.

Electrolux canister vacuum


The easiest solution would be to call your local Aerus/ Electrolux representative, because the corporation doesnt publish diagrams.
