Power head does not work canister does . There is voltage at the power head.


Although it could be a multitude of things that keep the power nozzle from operating properly, the most likely is, since it's an Epic series, Is that the power nozzle elbow assembly needs replaced as the fine wires and top of the elbow tend to break/short after 5-10 yrs. of use.
It's also very well possible that the power nozzle reset switch or hose switch at top of handle is defective. Try plugging the power nozzle directly into the hose handle assembly and turn machine on. If the power nozzle still doesn't work, it's definitely a problem directly with the power nozzle.

Hope that helps!

We have an electrolux central vac. The power head won't turn on. It has a 3 way switch on the handle. When to the left it is just air for the floor. center is off and to the right is the power head. ...


I assume you did press the reset switch on the power nozzle. If so, there are a number of things that could cause this. To rule out the hose and power switch, connect the Sidekick (if you have one) to the handle. Turn vacuum on. If the sidekick runs, the problem will be in the wands or power nozzle. Try connecting the power nozzle directly to the hose. If it runs, the problem is the wiring connections in the wands, or from the lower wand to the power nozzle. Check all connections for discoloring and broken or cracked wand fittings.
The wiring in the elbow of the PN is a fairly common problem, especially with certain models. A piece inside breaks, resulting in the wire connection to not make contact. No contact means the PN motor won't run. And there's always the possibility that the PN motor is bad.
If the Sidekick doesn't run when connected directly to the hose, the switch could be bad, the wiring in the hose could have broken, which is another common problem in older hoses, or the ECV board in the vacuum could be bad.
If the problem hasn't been resolved at this point, it's best to take the entire machine to the Aerus Electrolux store near you for a free diagnosis.

How can i replace or unclogg the hose ?model qsp 8


Remove the hose and lay it straight. Then using a broom or mop handle, push it into the hose and collapse the hose on the handle as far as you can. (Think crinkling your socks to pull them over your feet). You'll be doing much the same as you pull the hose up onto the handle. If you have no resistance from one end, then do the same things from the other end. Then replace the hose onto the vac and turn on the power. Your pushing with the broom/mop handle should dislodge whatever is caught and the suction from the vac should pull it through the rest of the way. I hope this helps. If so, please rate my solution. Good luck!

No spinning in the power head


First, check the red reset button on the power nozzle head. - if it's popped out, push it in. Also, if you have a switch on the handle, make sure you're pressing it while you're vacuuming. if those obvious solutions are already remedied, you may need to check the power outlet on the canister for voltage with a voltmeter while the vacuum is running, and then check your power hose and wand for continuity (checking for a broken wire) while the hose is disconnected from the canister. If all this checks out and the power nozzle still doesn't power on, you may have a bad motor in the power nozzle. If you're good at taking things apart, then it's a simple fix to replace the power nozzle motor.

I need to reassemble my rainbow e series electrified hose handle


Yes, it is a ground wire. When you put it back together, make sure that the two halves of the hose handle are holding the wire up against the metal. I just had one apart the other day for the first time and if I recall correctly, the wire goes near the center for reassembly. Hope this helps!

Power head handle wiring


Not sure, I had a chance to look at one earlier, there was a wire that came off of the hose and went to that point above the trigger. Is that wire by the trigger intact or broken off? I may be able to look it again on Monday.

Power head handle wiring


That wire goes just above where the trigger is, take the trigger out and there is a slot that the end goes into.
