I have a Electrolux Guardian Encore E and the power head quit working. It has suction power head off and all other attachments work.


Hi,
Try this. Remove the power nozzle from the lower wands. Remove the wands from the hose handle. Snap the power nozzle directly to the hose. Make sure all switches are turned on and try it. If the power nozzle now works, there's an issue with one or both of the wands. If the power head does NOT work, you've secluded the problem to the power head. With that being said and although it could be a power nozzle switch or a wire that disconnected inside, it's most likely the power nozzle Elbow assembly wiring that's worn out. This has been an issue with this model after so many years and you simply need to replace the Elbow assembly.
I hope this helps and let me know if I can be of any more help.

There is a light on the top that looks like a cord that is on. the vacuum hose attachment does not work. I just changed a bag did i do something wrong


The light with a cord "plug" on it indicates that there is power coming to the vacuum. This is normal.
Assuming that the vacuum works, but not the power nozzle, turn the PN over to view the brush. Clear all hair, thread, fibers, etc., that may be wrapped aroung the brush. Use a sharp knife or scissors to cut through them for ease of removal. Make sure the ends of the brush are cleared as well. Try the vacuum and press the reset switch on the PN. Does it work?
Is the PN motor running, but the brush isn't spinning. Turn PN over and try to spin the brush. If it turns freely, the belt is broken and needs replaced. This should be done by an authorized Aerus Electrolux service tech to avoid incorrect reassembly and resulting damage to vacuum and owner.
If the brush doesn't freely spin, but turns with resistance, this is normal.
If it still doesn't work, try the Sidekick mini power nozzle that should have come with it. If it works, but the full size PN doesn't, there's a problem with the PN. It needs to be taken to an authorized Aerus Electrolux store for diagnosis (free) and repair.
If the Sidekick doesn't work, the problem is in the hose, wands, or canister. It could be due to bad switches, wiring, and other electrical problems. In this case, the entire vacuum needs to be taken to an authorized Aerus Electrolux dealer for diagnosis and needed repairs.

Need to open the canister to get to the cord assembly of my Electrolux Lux 5000


Why do you need to get to the cord assembly?
If the cord will not retract, tilt the vacuum to about a 45 degree angle and gently tug and release cord. It will usually retract.
Due to problems ensuing from untrained persons attempting to reassemble the vacuum and having to take it to the shop anyway, I recommend not taking it apart.
If the above isn't the problem, please take it to the nearest Aerus Electrolux store for repair.

My wand on my canister began to spark and snap and smoke. The element was melting. and now I am stuck with only a working canister. the elememt or electrical hook up is burned up...and I guess I am gonna...


How's the hose?
If it's only one wand, yes, you'll need to buy a new one. It depends on where it burnt out. If it was at a connection to the hose, the other wand, or the power nozzle, you need to check the connections thoroughly for discoloration, breaks/cracks, and potentially shorts in the hose, wand, and power nozzle.
The entire vacuum should be taken to the nearest Aerus Electrolux dealer for troubleshooting for what caused the sparking in the first place.

My Ultralux 2000 vacuum power head does not work on my machine but does work on a different machine. What are the possilbe problems? I tried replacing the hose with a new one and that didn't help.


It's probably due to bad wiring connections between the wands, hose and wand, or power nozzle and wand. If it came with the Sidekick, try using it on the end of the hose. If not, simply try using the power nozzle on the end of the hose (no wands). If it works, then the problem is going to be with the cord sections in the wands. Check them good for cracks, breaks, and discoloration at connections. Replace if necessary.

When I vacuum with the power nozzle, it keeps cutting off. Do I need to replace the hose or the power nozzle?


Not necessarily. It's hard to tell without checking it out. I strongly recommend taking it to an authorized Aerus Electrolux store and letting the service tech check it.
If you have the "Sidekick", you can try using it. If it still cuts out, it's the hose. If not, the wiring in the power nozzle is loose or worn and needs to be replaced.
Keep in mind that you may not need to replace the hose or power nozzle, just have some wiring repaired.

Power nozzle N106M on our Electrolux Guardian has stopped workin


Start simplest always and work back to most difficult... so make sure you have power to the main unit, do you have a cheap voltmeter? If not they're cheap... Second check that connection plug is not stuffed with debris. Point is isolate whether it is the unit or attachment, most likely it's in the connection and repairable by you or used vacuum repair.
