Disconnect the power from the unit, then remove two screw in the handle and pull the handle apart and this will expose the wires.

Beater bar turning on and off. Why doesn't the vacuum?


Try wiggling the wire and where the hose swivels to attempt to determine where it may be shorting out. It could be the wire or the plugs where the wires connect if your model has them. Inspect these areas closely to find your short.

Power nozzle shuts off and like there is s bad wire electrolux epic 6500


the plastic wands are a problem sometimes, but the most common failure is the pivot, or swivel neck on the power nozzle. The wires are bad to pull loose or even break inside. Take it to your local vac repair shop and have them look at it. You either have a bad wand or a bad swivel neck most likely.

Remove handle from hose electrolux


You don't have to "remove" the handle from the hose to attach other attachments, just depress the tab at the end of the hose and pull the upper wand loose then use the "adapter" to use the dusting brush or simply snap the crevice tool in place to use. If the handle won't come loose from the upper wand, then the described "tab" needs replaced as it's locking up the parts. Hope that helps!

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

We have an electrolux central vac. The power head won't turn on. It has a 3 way switch on the handle. When to the left it is just air for the floor. center is off and to the right is the power head. ...


I assume you did press the reset switch on the power nozzle. If so, there are a number of things that could cause this. To rule out the hose and power switch, connect the Sidekick (if you have one) to the handle. Turn vacuum on. If the sidekick runs, the problem will be in the wands or power nozzle. Try connecting the power nozzle directly to the hose. If it runs, the problem is the wiring connections in the wands, or from the lower wand to the power nozzle. Check all connections for discoloring and broken or cracked wand fittings.
The wiring in the elbow of the PN is a fairly common problem, especially with certain models. A piece inside breaks, resulting in the wire connection to not make contact. No contact means the PN motor won't run. And there's always the possibility that the PN motor is bad.
If the Sidekick doesn't run when connected directly to the hose, the switch could be bad, the wiring in the hose could have broken, which is another common problem in older hoses, or the ECV board in the vacuum could be bad.
If the problem hasn't been resolved at this point, it's best to take the entire machine to the Aerus Electrolux store near you for a free diagnosis.

Have them replace at the Aerus Electrolux shop. Aerus uses a higher grade plastic (Lexan, read about it on the net) which should last the life of the the power nozzle and wands. The part and labor will have a 1 year warranty.

Power nozzle shuts on and off


HI There, When a Kenmore power nozzle cuts on and off, this usually indicates that your electrical hose has gone bad and has a short circuit somewhere. You can try and troubleshoot the hose to find out where the short is by trying to determine what position the hose is in when it cuts on and off, and try to isolate the short circuit by spinning the hose on both the end that plugs into the canister, as well as the end that plugs into the wand. Sometimes the short is in the wands, or even the swivel neck assembly on the power nozzle where the wands connect. I would say 9 times out of 10 though on Kenmore canisters, the problem is in the hose. Kenmore is actually manufactured by Panasonic, and the two brands use a lot of the same identical parts, including the electrical hose (most cases). If your Kenmore has a two position switch, with a setting for floors and carpets, then here's a link to the corresponding Panasonic hose that you can buy. The Panasonic hoses are a little more expensive then Kenmore, but the huge benefit is that they come 100% completely assembled, where as the Kenmore hose has to be assembled (which is extremely difficult even for me to do). Panasonic 3 Wire Electrical Suction Hose To Fit Kenmore Canisters On just a handful of Kenmore models, an additional modification has to be done with the internal switch. Kenmore must have had the hose modified so you'd have to buy the genuine Kenmore part, but luckily simply switching two wires on the switch will allow the Panasonic hose to work. Try just plugging in the hose into the vacuum first, and if it still doesn't work properly, then you can modify the switch. If you find that the short is in the wand or swivel neck, just use the comment field on this repair page and let me know, I'll be happy to follow up and walk you through either of these repairs as well. If this was helpful to you, please be so kind and rate the repair, or leave some feedback for me. This is greatly appreciated. Chris Jones GoVacuum.com

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


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.

Most times you have to replace the neck on the powerhead. Sometimes the switch in the handle of the hose will have a bad solder connection. But S300 is not a good model number, also the powerhead has its own number on the bottom, so couldn't look up parts for you.
