There is a red button on the head of your power nozzle. It is the reset button. Try hitting it and see if that helps.

If pushing the reset button doesn't help try having your local Aerus dealer check out the 2 prongs in the power head where it all connects. Sometimes they go bad.

Hi


Thanks for using FixYa. The issue can be due to many reasons: probably the bearing is out or the motor itself has gone bad and/or the impeller is bad. To check what is causing this issue you’ll have to take it apart and then check start with checking the edges of the impeller, if these edges are broken then it’ll cause a loud sound. If this is fine then check the bearings as they might have failed causing this issue, also check the fan as that might be loose. Please do accept the solution if the issue is resolved or post a comment for further assistance.


Thanks

SOURCE: How do I open the canister of the Aerus Electrolux

Hi there,

This will not be difficult to open, however, inside may scare you.

Remove your hepa filter cartridge (if you have one)
turn the machine over.
Undo the 6-8 screws there and pull the bottom off.
you should see everything there. If you are careful, just remove the old rewinder, and replace with the new one.

Good luck.
Mark

Lux legacy vacuum runs fine and was recently serviced - yesterday the tone of the motor on the vac started a higher sounding pitch - is this a potential problem and is there anything i can do with it -...


You don't mention whether it was the canister or upright model, but if it sounds differnet than what it usually does, then there is a potential problem. It could be anything from a full/clogged bag to a dirty filter to a clogged hose. You can check the hose by tyring to drop a coin through it.
If you didn't get it serviced at an authorized Aerus Electrolux shop, there could very well be other problems that were caused by an untrained service tech.
If it was recently serviced, and none of the above suggestions solve the problem, take it back to the shop that serviced it.
Also, keep in mind that these vacuums carry a 10 year warranty, but if serviced by a non-Aerus shop, the warranty is voided.

Electrolux Epic 6500: Trouble Shooting I


Electrolux Canister Vacuum Shuts Off During Use<br /> <br /> This actually cover several models of Aerus and Electrolux canister vacuums. Models covered include: 2100, Epic 6000, Epic 6500, Aerus Lux 5500, Aerus Lux 7000, and Aerus Lux Legacy. Be aware that some of these models may still be under warranty. Any disassembly of those machines will void the warranty. Use of non-genuine bags also voids the warranty. Use only Home Solutions Aerus/Electrolux bags.<br /> <br /> First, turn dial on top of vacuum counter-clockwise so the smallest dot lines up with the arrow. See if it stays on. If not, detach hose and turn vacuum on. Place palm of hand over intake. If it turns off, it's possible that the tubes connecting to the CVA are clogged and simply need cleaned. This is most often caused by using "made to fit" Electrolux bags. Dust is sucked through the bags and into the motor compartment of the machine. All interior parts get covered in dust and need to be cleaned. If this is the cause, the vacuum is best cleaned and repaired at an authorized Aerus Electrolux store. If the vacuum shuts off, or won't turn on before placing hand over the intake, it's probable the control valve assembly is bad and needs replaced.<br /> <br /> Another cause is an overheated motor due to clogged screen at back of bag well, full or clogged bag, dirty afterfilter, bad wiring/connections, clogged hose, clogged power head, or bad motor. It depends largely on the type and model of cleaner. Clogged wands are also a possibility, but unlikely.<br /> <br /> Check and clean screen at back of bag well.<br /> <br /> Replace bag. Make sure it's a genuine Electrolux bag made by Home Solutions.<br /> <br /> Check and replace afterfilter if necessary. These should be replaced after every six bags.<br /> <br /> Broken and worn wiring connections are often found in the hose ends due to abuse and normal wear and tear. You can check the continuity of the hose using a continuity tester or multi-tester. If a multi-tester, turn dial to one of the Ohm settings. Place one probe into one of the terminals on the end of the hose. This will be referred to as T1. Touch the other probe to each of the terminals/connections on the other end of the hose. These will be T3 and T4. One of them should read zero, the other should read infinity. Repeat this with the other terminal, which will be T2.<br /> <br /> Drop a marble in one end of hose and let it roll through. If it doesn't roll through, the hose is clogged and needs to be cleared. Plug hose into the exhaust port of the vacuum, place other end in the in port. Turn vacuum on. This provides a blowing and sucking action which should clear the hose.<br /> Detach hose from power nozzle (PN). Drop a marble into the wand end of PN. If it rolls through, it's clear. If not, there's probably a clog behind the brush where the intake opening is. You may be able to reach this through wand end with needle nose pliers, or either end with a knitting/crochet needle or a bent coat hanger.<br /> <br /> If none of these "fixes" provide the answer to the problem, it should be taken to the nearest Aerus Electrolux store for diagnosis.

I have an Aerus lux 7000 and there is something stuck in the hose. I've tried prying it out with a hanger and only succeeded in getting it further down the hose. Is there a way to get the handle off of the...


DON'T try a coat hanger again it could tear the sidewall of the hose. Never push and obstruction in a vac
You have a swivel handled hose. The handle will separate by removing several small screws buried under rubber buttons on the handle. The pieces, upper and lower, will separate and the handle willl slide forward off the hose itself.
Before doing so remove the filter of the vac and plug the hose into the blower below the filter. Try to blow out an obstruction. It is always easier to back out than force through as the handle is narrower than the those itself.

Eureka Enviro Vac Model 4470 Not Sucking


First, check to see if there is suction without the hose on the base. If not, and there is no blockage, the problem is likely a damaged impeller, the small fan that makes the suction. That will have to be replaced.

Is there a reset button somewhere on the power nozzle? Most of these have a breaker to prevent the motor from burning out.
