Yes, there is a reset switch on your Electrolux. This particular model also has some problems with the wands on the machine as well. Sometimes these wands will short out, preventing the power nozzle from working.
Try pushing the reset switch first to see if this fixes your problem. The reset switch is located on the power nozzle on the right hand side if you're looking down on it. It will be a little red pole, simply push this pole downwards, possible using a ball point pen is the easiest way.
If this didn't fix your problem, then it could be a few different things. The wands on your model are problematic, and should be the next thing that you test. Simply remove the wands from the power nozzle, and you can use a simply electrical tester purchased from Home Depot, and put the testers into the female receptacles on the end of each section of wand to ensure that power is getting down to the brush.
It may also be that your hose has gone bad. If you test both wand sections, and no power is getting through, remove both wand sections and test the female electrical connections on the end of the hose handle.
If you're not getting power here, this indicates that your hose has gone bad and needs to be replaced. We do carry all of the hoses for the Electrolux canisters, and most likely have the one for yours in stock. Please feel free to contact me if you need any further help.
