Resolution for Quick Connect Power Nozzle: If you're vacuum is 2001 prior, chances are one of the two contacts in the power nozzle elbow have let go.

The elbow can be disassembled by removing the two screw covers. You will need a flat head and small star. Also, you need to release the retaining clip on the back of the elbow. You will have to remove the elbow completely if it needs replacement. You will then have to remove the top cover of your power nozzle. That is easily done by removing all screws in the bottom base of your nozzle. Once you remove your cover you should see 2-4 screws holding in the elbow

When you remove the cover, you will see metal contact rings and two contacts. If one of them isn't contacting the ring your power nozzle will not turn on. You can try shaping it back into place but from experience the new revised elbow that does away with that kind of connectivity is a lot more effective. The new elbow runs about $40-$60. Between eBay and Aerus Electrolux Dealer.

Power Head keeps cutting in and out while vacuuming???Canister motor keeps running but the power head starts and stops like there is a short or some loss of connection somewhere. Any ideas?


The electrical terminal at the top of the extension wand may be loose or corroded. Unplug the vacuum and remove the wand from the hose assembly. Look at the 2 prongs and clean off any corrosion using a a Q-tip or scrape with a screwdiver if it's more persistent. After cleaning reconnect the wand to the hose and try it again. If the prongs are not corroded, they might be loose instead or they might not be aligned properly. If this is the case then bending the prongs very slightly may help realign them. The part that may be giving you the trouble is called the terminal cover (PN 8191782). It costs about $10 but the problem is knowing the procedure to actually replace the part. CAN ANYONE EXPLAIN HOW TO OPEN UP THE EXTENSION WAND TO REPLACE THE TERMINAL COVER ??

Loose electrical contact in extension wand


You have a loose connection at one of several possible locations.Inspect the contacts at the top and bottom of the wand .IF they are black or coppery or look melted, both pairs of contacts, male and female will need to be replaced.
Try to wiggle and twist the wand at top, then at bottom. If this does not reveal the short, work your way back down the hose towards the a vac itself, starting behind the hose handle.

Cannot reinstall valve pipe assembly on Dyson dc17 vacuum


Take off the cyclone canister and flip open the filter cover. (The U-shaped tube at the bottom of the vacuum is probably already off-if not, release the lock with a screwdriver and remove it.) Release the vacuum from the upright positon, so that the head is extended. Align the value pipe assembly so that the clear tabs line up while the small extension off the value pipe faces the front of the vacuum (ie, is near the filter area). Now you have to carefully twist the value pipe clockwise while lining us the small extension with the black groove inside the head piece by moving the head back into the upright positon at the same time. Replace the U-shaped tube.

With the head flipped upside down, take a flat tipped screw driver and carefully pry up the rollers on the front the head. Underneath, you'll find a screw. Remove the screw under each roller, and the front cover will come off with ease. The rollers are just friction fit.

On button won't stay on


easy fix, unplug the machine sit in front of it. put your thumb on the on/off button and push down and slip your thumb off of it as fast as you can so it pops real loud. Do this ten times and then plug back in and see if it works. ( this came from talking with Dyson people) Hope it works for you. They said this will reset the machine. also acts as a warning that your filters most likely need cleaned.

Vax 4100, how to disassemble for repair


To disassemble a canister vax you first remove 2 screws holding the handle cover. One is just above where the power flex enters the handle, the other is at the mid-point of the top, hidden under the label. Both are small crosshead screws. Before doing attempting this, you need to be competent with working on mains electric wiring, as some of this has to be removed to do all this.

Once the handle covers are removed, the next bit is to gently lever off the speed control knob - it's a tight friction fit, then undo the nut holding it to the handle cover panel. After this undo the mains power connections from the multi-block joiner they go into then remove the 2 screws securing the mains wire. Then undo 2 bolts at each end of the handle going downwards into the main body. At this point the handle can be removed as well as the top body plate. You have to fiddle the electrics and switches through the hole in the top body plate to remove it. Now 3 bolts and a small crosshead screw is all that holds the upper motor section to the lower. Remove these and you can separate the 2 halves which gives you acess to the water pump. This is held in by screws founf underneath the plastic ring at the base of the motor body (around where the small reound blue sponge filter goes). This ring is held in by plastic springy clips. Gently lever round it to get it come off.

That's it. Re-assemble is reverse of all this. Don't disconnect the electrics without drawing pictures or photographing to work out which wire goes to where.

No power to head of Kenmore Progressive canister vac


The extension wands are defective and have trouble with their plug connectors on each end. The power head has a reset button on top right but no lights mean no power which means the wand isn't connecting the power to anything.

Sears has a new replacement -- too bad it isn't recalled so you could get it for free ($106.59 + tax + shipping). 2nd sweeper -- same problem.

1st sweeper: I just took needlenose pliers and pulled connectors out a little further (Too bad I can't seem to make the 2nd sweeper work with this easily. It might be one of the connectors or the wiring harness inbetween with a break.) Can't buy the wiring harness for this or connectors, just the wand.

If anyone has a working wand you want to sell me email me at hiwhatsnew@hotmail.com. Thanks!

Powermate connection flickers


I had the same problem. Sears has replacement parts for mine (Model 11625813506) here: http://www.searspartsdirect.com/partsdirect/getModel!retrieve.pd?modelNumber=11625813506&pop=flush

Rather than pay $10 for a new cover terminal (which I probably couldn't install myself anyway), $99 for a whole new wand, and possibly $108 for a whole new hose (ridiculous prices, btw), I took a small flat head screwdriver and scraped off the dirt/corrosion on the terminal pins. This didn't resolve my problem, but I noticed the connection between the extension wand and the "Power mate" hose handle was loose. The handle could wiggle/slide about 1/8" when connected to the wand, creating the loose connection. I used the screwdriver to bend the pins down slightly (in the direction away from the wand tube), to compensate for the loose connection. This worked like a charm, fixed the intermittent circuit contact completely, and was very easy to do. I'd highly recommend trying this, before doing anything more complicated.
