Open the door on the inlet port and look inside. You should see 2 small pins. These pins are spring loaded to make contact with the metal end of your hose when you plug it in. Two low voltage wires are screwed to the underside of these pins. The low voltage wires go all the way back to the low voltage switch/relay on your central vac power unit.
Sometimes one or both of these pins will just break so that they don't make contact with the end of your hose. If you see no pins or just one then you will have to replace the inlet cover.
If both pins are present; push down on them with your finger. If you feel resistance then your inlet is probably OK.
CAUTION: IF YOUR CENTRAL VAC INLETS HAVE A 110 VOLT CONNECTION, REMOVAL/REPLACEMENT OF YOUR INLET SHOULD ONLY BE DONE BY A QUALIFIED ELECTRICIAN.
Remove the two screws in the faceplate. Carefully slide the inlet cover out. Check the two screw on wiring connections. Make sure both wires are securely attached and that there are no breaks.
If neither of the above fixed your problem, you may have a broken or disconnected wire somewhere between this inlet and the low voltage witch at your power unit.

Why lux 5000 has nosuckshen


90% of the time it's because the hose is either clogged or in need of replacement. Quick way to check for an obstruction is to simply drop a nickel in one end of the hose and if it doesn't come out the other...IT's CLOGGED! Remove the rear cover where the after filter is, remove the filter, stick the vacuum end of the hose into the blower port, turn the vac on to clear the hose. If it's not a clogged hose and you have low suction at the port where the hose goes into the machine, then it's most likely a motor situation and in need of replacement. I do that here. Hope it helps!

You may have more dog hair in the main hose. Pull the hose out of the body, turn the lower hose swivel 90 degrees parallel to the floor and twist the hose off. You will see where to remove it at the swivel. Also check the port door on the back of the vacuum near the bottom of the upper section. It can be looks like a parallelogram with 2 plastic screws, twist the screws half a rotation and gently pry the cover off. After clearing out any debris, replace the cover and fasten the screws. A small LED flashlight will be very handy for checking all of the ports and hoses.

How do you make it blow air out? trying to make air blow out,i have the hose that has controls on it. will work to **** up but when i put it to blow out will not come on.


The Guardian Canister vacuums have a blow port under the filter. So you need to remove the filter (on the Guardian Ultra, you have to open the top of the vacuum) by lifting it up the forward. Then disconnect the hose from the normal suction end of the unit and plug it into the blower port. Now turn on the vacuum. If the hose is clogged, position the other end of the hose at the suction port.

For the Guardian canister, select the high, medium or low force for the motor. Then blow the dust out from under the furniture or use to fill an inflatable. Turn off the vacuum and replace the hose in the usual position and replace the filter when done.

If you are still unable to get the unit to blow out when connected to the exhaust port after attempting to clear the hose, separate the hose, wand and handle. Look down the hose for any object that might be creating a one-way valve. Remove the foreign object.Do the same with the other parts of the unit. Also replace the vacuum bag. If the bag is sufficiently full, the airflow will be reduced through the bag to the exhaust and cause the problem you describe.

The Electrolux Guardian Canister Vacuums are part of the Aerus line. The manuals for the vacuums are available here: http://www.aerusvacuums.com/support/manuals/index.cfm . The Guardian Ultra is in the current model section. The Guardian is listed in the Older Model drop-down menu.

I hope this helps.

(many canister vacuums have a blower mode when you connect the hose to the exhaust (after the bag) instead of the suction side of the unit.)

My Dyson DC17 is picking up on the floor, but the wand is not working. I cleaned out a clog from the port in the back, but the wand still isn't working.


If there's no suction at the end of the wand, check at the end of the hose. If none here, then there's none at the powerhead, so it's not picking up either.
Check the hose. A clog at the tank port generally result in a clog in the hose as well. If none are visible, detach hose completely, hold one end up and drop a coin in. Lifting the hose should result in the coin falling through. Not doing so means a clog. You may be able to push it through with a broom handle. If that doesn't work, try holding the powerhead end of the hose to the tank port. Turn the vacuum on. This may provide enough suction to pull the clog through.
If not, and you have access to a shop vac or air pressure hose and generator, try blowing the clog out with one of these. Or you can buy an air mattress pump and try that.

How do i change from vacuum to blower?


In order to change from suction to blowing, insert the hose into the
exhaust port of the vacuum cleaner.
The vacuum cleaner should have two ports, one which is for suction,
the other is an exhaust port. The exhaust port can be used for blowing
when the hose is inserted into it.
After inserting the hose into the exhaust port just turn on the switch.

  1. Squeeze Latches (Figure C) on top and bottom of the hose. Remove hose from port. Close the Hose port door.

I have an electrolux central vacuum in my house. My central vac hose has something stuck in it, I think, maybe a sock. I tried to put a long dryer wand down it but the hose is just too long. Does this need...


The best way to clear an obstruction is to blow it out by attaching the wall end to the exhaust of a shop vacuum, or using an air compressor.
You can try holding the wand end of the hose directly to the CV in port and turning the machine on. This provides essentially the same action as the previous method.
If neither of these work, try a combination of the two. Or using a shop vac, hold the wall end to the exhaust of the vacuum and the wand end to the in port of the shop vac. Turn shop vac on and the obstruction should come out.
Borrow a good strong shop vacuum if you need to.
If these methods fail, take it to an authorized Aerus Electrolux store and have the service tech try to clear it. Care must always be taken when trying to clear an obstuction with a long object, especially if it's pointed. I've seen many hoses that have shorted out and even caught fire due to the wiring accidentally being "nicked".

My dirt devil is not sucking well, what do i do


Check the hose to make sure it's not clogged. You can do this by dropping a marble in one end and allowing it to roll through. If clogged, try placing the "wrong" end against the intake port of the vacuum and turning it on. If this doesn't work, try a shop or canister vacuum, hooking up to the exhaust port. If still no success, you may need to take it in to the dealer.
Also check inside the intake port for clogs. The piece of flex tube in the power head is another area where clogs form easily.
Make sure the "dirt tank" is empty and the filter is clean.
Another cause of lost or poor suction/air flow is a leaky hose. For this, replacement is the only solution.

My vacuum won't pick up anything how do I clean it out


1. Replace bag if needed.
2. Check hose/s for clogs. You'll need to detach both ends of the hose, check for visible clogs first, then try to roll a marble through the hose. If it doesn't go all the way through, there's obviously a clog that needs to be removed. Blowing it out with a machine that has an exhaust port usually works for me.
3. Check tube in powerhead and intake on vacuum for clogs. Remove if necessary.
4. Clean filter.
5. Leaky hoses will also cause extreme loss of airflow/suction. No fix for this, except to replace the hose.
