SOURCE: Have a rainbow power nozzle model pn-2e needs key to open where can I get one

The key is broken off of your Sole Plate Front PN2E. You should be able to just squeeze tabs and remove entire plate from bottom of power nozzle. There is no special key needed.

Power nozzle does not work. Light comes on on power nozzle but it does not vacuum


Many early version PN-2E power nozzles have reset buttons that are becoming faulty. The factory stopped adding the rest button to this model power nozzle so you can update your unit by removing and this my solve your issue. You have the trigger to stop the motor if you have an issue so the rest button has become unnecessary.

Will D4c se plug into D4c


The Rainbow D4, D4C and SE all are the same vacuum base, only changes were made to the nozzle. As long as the nozzle cord on your D4 has 2 prongs, not 3 prongs you can use the D4 nozzle that looks like This or the SE PE (SE Performance) Nozzle that looks This

Replace belt genesis upright


Turn vacuum upside down on flat surface, remove the 6-7 screws from the bottom of the power nozzle, lay it on it's side and pry on the two accessible internal tabs to pop top cap of the nozzle off to access the pn motor assembly. Lay flat on it's back again and remove the screws that hold the roller brush in, remove the roller brush, remove old belt, install new belt on brush roll and pn motor geared spindle, push brush roll back in place, replace screws and pn top and VOILA!..you're back in bidness! Hop that helps!

There is a light on the top that looks like a cord that is on. the vacuum hose attachment does not work. I just changed a bag did i do something wrong


The light with a cord "plug" on it indicates that there is power coming to the vacuum. This is normal.
Assuming that the vacuum works, but not the power nozzle, turn the PN over to view the brush. Clear all hair, thread, fibers, etc., that may be wrapped aroung the brush. Use a sharp knife or scissors to cut through them for ease of removal. Make sure the ends of the brush are cleared as well. Try the vacuum and press the reset switch on the PN. Does it work?
Is the PN motor running, but the brush isn't spinning. Turn PN over and try to spin the brush. If it turns freely, the belt is broken and needs replaced. This should be done by an authorized Aerus Electrolux service tech to avoid incorrect reassembly and resulting damage to vacuum and owner.
If the brush doesn't freely spin, but turns with resistance, this is normal.
If it still doesn't work, try the Sidekick mini power nozzle that should have come with it. If it works, but the full size PN doesn't, there's a problem with the PN. It needs to be taken to an authorized Aerus Electrolux store for diagnosis (free) and repair.
If the Sidekick doesn't work, the problem is in the hose, wands, or canister. It could be due to bad switches, wiring, and other electrical problems. In this case, the entire vacuum needs to be taken to an authorized Aerus Electrolux dealer for diagnosis and needed repairs.

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.

The agitator brush of my central vacuum cleaner didn't roll.What's the problem of it?


If the power nozzle motor is running, then the problem is a broken belt. It's recommended that it be taken to an authorized shop for replacement.
If the PN motor is not running, locate the reset switch on top of the PN and depress. If the motor still does not come on, there's a problem in the wiring or power module. The entire machine, including hose, wands, and power nozzle needs to be taken to the nearest authorized shop for exact diagnosis and repair/replacement of parts.
If the machine is the old style Electrolux (now known as Aerus), not sold in home improvement stores, the nearest authorized store can be found on the below site. Just follow the instructions.

I vacuumed a shirt. It came out immediately and there is now visible damage. The suction is working but the rotary piece with the brushes is not


Have you pressed the reset button on the power nozzle? If the power nozzle motor isn't running, this is the problem. If the PN motor is running, the problem is more likely to be a broken belt, and it needs replaced.
If the belt, I strongly recommend taking it to an authorized Aerus Electrolux dealer to have it replaced. It can be tricky disassembling and reassembling the PN without damaging something.

Power head hose to fit power nozzle PN-4. Electrolux MDL 1401B


Generic problem for all Vacuums
Power head hose to fit
Power head hose to fit power nozzle PN-4. Electrolux MDL 1401B

I would advise you to ALWAYS to FIRST UNPLUG YOUR VACUUM before beginning any service procedure.
I would advise because this is an older Electrolux Power Nozzle PN-4
Model #1401B that you could buy a replacement hose of which would save you money or you can spend the price for a genuine hose – replacement hoes work just fine and are less money.
