Re: 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.

Check your User Guide. For a ProHeat it will page 4 or on the assembly directions page 6. The hose wraps around the big loops close to the handle and the electric wire wraps around the loops with the catch that turns. Hope that helps.
There are two different styles of hose for the 6500 vacuums. Please be careful when you take the handles off and also when putting it back togeather. To remove the handle there are two screw caps that you need to remove to get to the screws. You can do this with the tip of a knife or something similar inserted under the edge of the screw cap and pry up. The screws can either be a Phillips head or a torx bit. Remove the screws and then separate the top part of the handle from the bottom. Make sure to notice the position of the wires and do not unplug them from the switch or the contact block.The contact block at the hose end of the handle has two contacts that transfer the power from the hose to the handle and will bend out of shape if you are not careful. To remove the contact block, use a flat head screw driver under the block and pry up. On the older models, the handle will slip right off. If you have a newer model, there is a handle retainer at the base of the handle and will push out with a screw driver. It only goes one way and
the handle will slip off.
To replace the handle just reverse the procedure. Good luck.
It's probably due to a build-up of dirt/hair around the brush head or a blockage in the suction head just behind the brush (where the hole is smaller and bends slightly before entering the extension tube. Remove the brush from the head of the machine and also the extension tube between the head and the top of the machine and then gently clear the rectangular hole in the brush compartment with something flexible (maybe a piece of wire or a pipe-cleaner) depending on how bad the blockage is. Then remove any hair/strands which may be wrapped around the brush, and any dust in the brush compartment. It may also be a opportune time to wash out the filter which is located just in front of the handle on the upper part of the machine. Leave the filter to dry completely before refitting (in an airing cupboard or near a radiator - may take some hours)
1 Unplug the vacuum and remove all accessories such as extensions and brushes. Open the vacuum's outer casing to get at the end of the power cord. Exactly how you will do this depends on the model of vacuum. Generally it simply involves the removal of two to three Phillips-head screws.
2 Follow the power cord to the two connections at the vacuum's motor. Unfasten any clips or holding bracket and disconnect the cord from the motor. Sometimes this can be accomplished by unscrewing two connection screws, other times the cord is soldered directly to the motor. If this is the case use wire cutters and cut the cord about 4 inches from the motor to give room for splicing on a new cord.
3 Insert the new power cord into the vacuum. Follow the exact same path as the old one. If there were any brackets or clips that held the old cord in place inside the vacuum or out use them on the new cord.
4 Tie a knot in the cord on the inside of the vacuum casing so that it will not accidentally be pulled out of the motor once it is in use.
5 Connect the new cord to the motor in the same fashion as the old one. With wire strippers take off about 1 inch of insulation from the new cord to expose the two wires. Either wrap them around the connection posts and re-screw, or twist the new cord wires around the 4-inch remnants of the old cord and seal all exposed wire and connections with electrical tape.
6 Replace the vacuum's casing in reverse order from how you removed it. Plug in the vacuum to test.
We have here the user manual. The page 8-9 you will see the instruction for replace the power nozzle which shows how to desmandle the vacuum and you will find the power cord connetion point. A big advice use your camera to take picture every step you make and especialy before remove the wires since in any case you will forget anything when you will try to assemble it back they will bevery helpfull.
What goes into a vac hose enters the smallest part. The handle is designed to be a small reducer to prevent some blockage so the obstruction must back out. Do not attempt to use a sharp coathanger as you could tear the inside of t the hose and do not attempt to push the cover deeper as it will wedge tight. Your best bet is to draw this item back out with another vac. Sometimes bumping,( not smashing) the side of the handle against a carpeted floor area while doing so will help dislodge the item. Failing that you will need to open the handle itself.
If you look closely on this hose there are several small screw covers which will pop out with a pin to reveal hidden screws. Once removed the handle will open like a **** shell and then slide off the hose. The handle must be carefully aligned when reinstalling and the wire covers installed last, with the handle fully in place. If all else fails and you must use a wire coat hanger, create a small 190 degree hook at the end so there is no chance of a sharp edge cutting the hose itself if pushed to far. Post back with results or if you need more help
Open the vac by removing 3 screws below the handle area and the long screw at the bottom of the cone. If the motor has been removed, you will have 2 motor leads , 2 power head socket leads, and 2 switch leads as well as the cord. Do not twist your wires first when pairing, twist with the wire nut ony and tape afterword as there is metal nearby in the housing area 1 side of the cord goes to the switch only. The opposite side of the switch will go to 1 of each of the motor and Socket. The remaining motor and socket leads pair with the remaining cord lead. While you are in there change the round filter dic covering the front of the motor and you could change the foam/ felt wrap around the inside of the housing. There is a insulating disc at the top of the motor to prevent shock between motor and screen. Do not remove it.
