Many early version PN-2E power nozzles have reset buttons that are becoming faulty. The factory stopped adding the rest button to this model power nozzle so you can update your unit by removing and this my solve your issue. You have the trigger to stop the motor if you have an issue so the rest button has become unnecessary.

No power in power nozzle
Posted by pjs5451 on Apr 06, 2008
Vacuumed with power nozzle one day working fine took attachment off to use crevice tool reattached power nozzle and no power whatsoever.

Hello,
I would advise you to ALWAYS to FIRST UNPLUG YOUR VACUUM before beginning any service procedure. Rainbow E Series Canister Wet/Dry Vacuum. The Rainbow Power Nozzle does have a reset button on the newer model on the top of the power nozzle, just push it and it should reset, or check all your pigtail connections to make sure they are connection and the cord leading to the actual Rainbow Vacuum itself. Out in left field might be that the power nozzle motor could be shorting out or not working or dead and might be in need of replacement. Check the cord for any frays or bad connections. If you have a problem please feel free to contact your local vacuum cleaner dealer in your area. 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.

Belt stopped working


<p>If your power nozzle has a circuit breaker, then it could be bad. The eSERIES PN2E power nozzle has had many issues with the circuit breaker going bad. If the light on top the power nozzle comes on, then most likely your circuit breaker is the issue.</p>
<p>On the PN2E and PN2 Power Nozzles, it is not necessary to use the circuit breaker. If you circuit breaker goes bad, just wire the leads together and use <a href="http://www.rainvac.com/8mm-516-hole-cover-pnozzle">this hole cover</a> to complete the job. Use a 5/16 drill bit to allow the hole cover to fit.</p>
<p>The electric hose has a trigger that you turn the power nozzle on and off so there is no need to have a circuit breaker. If you get something caught in the brush roll, just release the trigger.</p>

Power nozzle will not turn on


Depending on the power nozzle model, does a red light come on the top of the power nozzle? If it does, then the problem could be the circuit breaker. If it does not, then the problem could be either in the hose or the connection from the hose to the main unit. Make sure you hear to clicks and the hose is connected solid to the main unit. Otherwise, the receptacles can't make contact to allow the power nozzle to turn on.

Green light on power nozzle of Kirby vacuum, Model G7D


The green light is just to inform you that the brushroll is spinning. there is a magnet on the brushroll that makes the green light come on every time it rotates. also why it looks like the light flickers because the magnet only makes contact once per rotation of your brushroll. Let me know if you have any other questions.

Miele power nozzle quits after 10 seconds of working.


Even though the brush is spinning, you probably need to replace the belt2_bing.gifbecause it is stretched. It is probably slipping on the beater bar.

Power nozzle works intermittently


The pin connection from the lower handle tube to the power nozzle are not making good contact. It is new, so i would have warranty service performed.

Powerhead no longer working


If you can hear the power nozzle motor running, but the belt doesn't spin, it is most likely the belt. You will have to get the belt from an Aerus dealer or a Vac shop. If you want to put the belt on yourself, you can. There or five or six screws on the bottom of the power nozzle that need to be removed and the cover should come off. Once the cover is off, you will see the belt and how to change it. Good Luck!!

Electrolux power nozzle not working


the powerhead gets its power through a connector adjacent to the hose connection to the vacuum end. there's two wires embedded in the hose which make its way to the handle, pipe and powerhead. take apart the handle and see if you can read continuity from one end to the handle switch.
