Have you made sure the hose is completely clear of any and all obstructions? the power mate also? I have to make the assumption that you're checking the air coming from the rear exhaust port to know that it's still blowing. Take the hose out of the machine and check the suction at the machine itself. If it's good there and not at the end of the hose, that's your problem.

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

I tried what reddevil6 suggested and was not able to get Sears to produce a manual. I would prefer an online manual but at this point I'm desperate enough to try anything.

I by accident sucked up the corner of a sheet into the powermate of my vacuum. I turned the vacuum off and pulled out the sheet but now the powermate is no longer working (suction works fine) Is this...


These power heads have a kill switch on them. Not exactly clearly labeled.

the kill switch reset button should be on the right side of the unit as you look down like you are using it. you may want to try pushing it with the power to the power brush on. Upon resetting the button there, the power
head should start no problem.

Good luck with that.

We have a Kenmore canister vacuum cleaner. the carpet cleaning attachment, I think is called the power mate has a beater that is intermittently working now


Your hose could be bad. The wires frequently go bad up by the handle switch. also could possibly be the wand, those go bad. You can check that by attaching your powermate directly to the nozzle without the wand and see if the same problem is there. Do you have the mini powermate also? the one that is usually mounted on the wand. If so plug that in directly to the hose and see if you have the same problem. If that tool works fine then the problem is in the powerhead.

Works in FLOOR position but not in CARPET.


The power nozzle has a reset button. Push that and that should fix the issue. You could of sucked up the corner of a piece of carpet causing the brush roller to become jammed. If that doesn't work, there could be a problem with the hose. The hose perhaps isn't providing the power to run the power nozzle.

The vacuum is not sucking up material. Rather it


Either the bag is full, or the belt is broken that drives the brush on the underneath side of wand.

The beater won't turn


Un-plug the vacuum.

Turn the vacuum cleaner over and pop off or unscrew the bottom plate. The most common things are broken belt, clogged beater bar (usually hair), bad beater bar bearings, or the beater bar and belt is just plain worn out and needs replacing. If the brush nubs are very worn, replacing the belt alone won't help much.

Clean as much debris, hair etc as possible out of the unit. If you have a can of air like the type used to clean computer key boards, blow out the area and the motor if possible. Do this in a ventilated area or somewhere where it will not mess up your house.

Vacuum is not sucking. It is just over a year old.

Hello,
I would advise you to ALWAYS to FIRST UNPLUG YOUR VACUUM before beginning any service procedure.
It sounds like you have a clogged hose or a full bag, or dirty filter. The best way to check your electric hose id to run a marble or steel ball thru the hose and if it goes thru all the way then check the bag and filter, most times it is the vacuum hose. If it id the hose you can try to pull apart the clog from both ends using another central or canister vacuum. If not and the ball stops mid way thru the hose then you can use a broom handle with a round hook on the end so that it does not puncture the hose is any place and the round hook can loosen or break up your clog and then your suction will return, if you poke a hole in the vacuum hose there are repair kits that go on the outside of the hose that will slide over the hose and then you use a heat gun and shrink the hose repair kit down to size therefore plugging the leak. (Hose repair kit). So if you need further assistance, please feel free to contact your local vacuum cleaner dealer in your area or in the yellow pages, or contact the factory phone number or website to further assist you with your questions.

I had the same problem with my vacuum. I called in for technical service and was told to push the "reset button". It turns out that there is a small red button right next to the dirt indicator light. I pushed the button, plugged the vacuum back in and started it up and it worked like a charm! :) Hope this helps!

Performance indicator light


check to make sure the bag isn't being sucked into the air filter. open the access door where the bag is and you'll see the air filter at the bottom. to check, leave the door open while you would see the performance indicator light on, and then pull up the bag. this is one of many solutions i'm sure to the performance indicator problem.
