    Obviously you are not familiar with Vaccuum Cleaner by Electrolux.....Yes It is a Renny.....

  • JoeVacs Oct 22, 2013

    I am quite familiar with Electrolux vacuum cleaners actually. I have been a vacuum cleaner repair technician for over 25 years. I have never seen one called a Renny. If you are in Europe, that could be the reason as there are different names and different models over there.

  • fggmplus Oct 22, 2013

    Did not mean that you have not worked on vacuum cleaners, but to the avid Electrolux Dealer and Repairman of Electrolux its nickname is Renny and is short for Renaissance, in addition they were manufactured in the 1990's.

    The Renaissance is the machine that started the bankrupcy of Electrolux. Most of them had defective electronics within the warranty period and put a heavy strain on the company financially.

This is a problem that needs to be checked at an Aerus Electrolux store. They have the tech manuals to troubleshoot the specific problems with the Renny (Renaissance). There are three possible problems involving the electronics in either the hose handle or the canister.
When the problem was first noted, customers brought their vacuums in and the service managers simply replaced the hoses. That resulted in burning out the boards in either the new hose or the vacuum, increasing the cost of warranty repair/part replacement. Electrolux quickly sent out service updates letting the service personnel know to stop the practice immediately. I can't remember how long it took before we finally got the proper troubleshooting data, but yes, there were a lot of problems with many of the machines. Fortunately for the store I worked at, there weren't many.

Have a Dyson v6 for several months. Roller brush stops turning a soon as I start to push forward after staring trigger. Examined & cleaned roller & surrounding head & find no objects interfering.


The Dyson V6 has an electric motor in the power head. The battery is in the handle unit. So power has to get from the battery head unit down to the motor at the floor roller brush. The way they do this is to send the power around the plastic debris cup that you empty, and then into the connector for the tube and out the bottom of the tube to the roller brush motor. Your problem is probably that there is a lost contact along the way. Try plugging the roller brush directly into the head unit leaving the tube out and see if it is intermittent or if it runs fine. In that case the problem is one of the contacts associated with the down tube. If the roller brush is intermittent even when plugged directly into the head unit, then the problem may be the connection associated with the debris cup. remove the cup and make sure the contacts are clean. Hope this helps. G

It sounds like you may have a bad hose. Plug the hose into the wall but rotate it 90 degrees from the normal position. This will bypass the switch on the hose. If you look at the wall end of your hose, you will see a metal band around it. That metal band is split into two sections. You are trying to plug in the hose so that the separation of the two pieces of metal is not lining up at the top of your inlet. If your vacuum turns on then you have a bad hose. It is possible that you have a bad switch in the hose, but it is more likely that you have a bad hose.

If your vacuum does not turn on, then you may have a break in your low voltage wire somewhere. You can check to make sure it didn't get disconnected at the unit. If the wire is connected then try to cross the low voltage wire from the relay at the unit with a small screw driver. If the unit does not turn on you have a bad relay.

If it is the relay, AirVac does not provide them. You would need to consider buying a new unit.

Most likely the hose pipe has nothing to do with the problem. Most likely is a loose connection and as time goes by the connection gets looser, which causes failure rate to increase. Once until is on, the power flowing through the loose connection helps keeps it connected. Open the unit and wiggle this and that until to can isolate the actual cause of the problem. Try not to shock yourself.

The Vaccum is not turning on when i plug the hose into the wall. The hoover system will turn on when i turn the switch on at the base and wont go off till i turn the switch off. But it will not come on...


you can test this out by taking a small metal spoon and with the bottom side of the spoon insert it into the vac outlet on the wall. you want to touch the two metal pins inside the vac outlet to test if the unit is the problem or the hose is the problem.

If the unit starts, the hose should have a 3 year warranty on it. I recommend you have your nearest beam dealer check it out.

If the unit does not start, it has a 7 or 10 year warranty, the circuitry should be replaced. Again have your nearest beam dealer check it out.

good luck

Kenmore 25614/25615 Progressive bagged canister vac won't start


sounds like there was a loose connection or loose wire that came in contact with another wire. check your cord for small burn holes, also could have shorted out in the hose or the wand. If you are comfortable to disassemble the vacuum i can walk you through the troubleshooting process so we can find out what actually went bad. id start with the cord though. let me know if you have any questions or need more assistance

You have two circuit boards in th Renny, one is in the handle of the hose and the other is called a triac located next to the motor in the canister. There is a long and drawn out procedure in trouble shooting the problems with the Renny and if you don't know what to do, you will be in more trouble than you are now.
The best thing is to find a reputable Aerus/Electrolux dealer/shop and have them to find what the problems are.

Electrolux C104A does not turn on. won't start. No light on, no sound. Is there any fuse to be raplace and/or ?


The Renny is a hard machine to diagnose. You could have a broken wire in the cord or in the hose. There is a fuse wire located inside the canister that could be bad.Also, the handle circuit board2.gif could be bad or the triac (another circuit board) located inside the canister could be bad. There is no use for you to open the machine. You could do more damage than good.

NuTone CV353 Central Vac does not start when hose is plugged into


Try to plug the hose in sideways. So the top of the hose is rotated 90 degrees. If the unit turns on then there is something wrong with the hose. It might be a short or it could be a bad switch on the handle. If the unit still wont turn on I would think that maybe the low voltage wire got disconnected from the unit or there is a break in the low voltage wire somewhere along the way. Let me know if you plugging the hose in sideways works.
