Unplug the vac and spin the acorn nut on the separator in the water reservoir. If it spins freely and this vac has run for a few years you may need a fresh set of motor brushes. Do not attempt to run the vac if the motor hums or makes a burning smell. Worn brushes are normal and can often be replaced in an older Rainbow/ Rexair

I have a 18 yr old Admiral DH359 demudifier. When I turn on the dial (switch) it gives a humming noise buy the blade does not rotate. After about a minute or two it shuts off because of condenser over...


The problem with your unit is the fan. The engine behind the blades have gotten spoilt hence its inability to roll the blades. Usually when the engine of a fan is spoilt as a result of the coil the engine still tries to move but due to the bad coil the engine hums but does not come to a start. The fan is meant to be the main component which regulates the temperature of the unit if the fan does not cool the unit then the unit will overheat and go off. Simplest solution is to extract the entire fan plus its engine and get ? replacement for it. If you have the required expertise to open and reassemble the unit you can do this yourself otherwise get an expert to carry it out for you. Hope this solution has been helpful?

Will not start. replaced switch. What next?


1. Make sure that both safety switches are engaged (front and bag area).

2. The power cord can break internally where you won't see it. Look for damage or twists in the cord. With the vacuum turned on wiggle these areas between your hands and see if it tries to run. If so replace the cord. If not the he motor may need to be serviced

Switch to turn vacuum on/off currently not working do not even here the click


The vacuum will need to be taken to the nearest Aerus Electrolux store for replacement. A rep can also pick it up and return it. If this is done, an estimate will be given to you over the phone. If the rep tries a demo spiel, FIRMLY tell him/her no.

I got it wet and it went off dried it all in and out wont come on


Remove the sweeper head and try to turn the impeller by hand in either direction--it should turn easily. If not, then the motor bearings are probably in need of replacement. Check around the motor for a circuit breaker--push to reset. With the switch on, try wiggling the cord near the plug end--if the motor tries to turn on at times, replace the plug by cutting behind the plug an inch or so, stripping the outer covering back about 1-1/2 inch, and the wire ends insulation back about 5/8 inch. This should prepare the cord for installing the replacement plug (from your nearest home center or hardware store). The instructions that come with better plugs may show a little different process than what is described here. Hope some of this helps!
