THE RENAISSANCE IS KNOWN FOR HAVING PROBLEMS WITH THE CIRCUIT BOARD IN THE HANDLE.YOU'LL NOTICE THAT MODELS THAT CAME AFTER THAT HAD SLIDING SWITCHES. UNFORTUNATELY THE NEW HOSE DESIGN WON'T WORK ON YOUR MACHINE BECAUSE THE CIRCUIT BOARD INSIDE THE MACHINE WAS CHANGED TOO.AERUS MAY OR MAY NOT STILL MAKE THE PARTS YOU NEED. OTHER WISE LOOK ON E-BAY FOR A NEW HOSE.
ELECTROLUX FOOLISHLY REPLACED IT'S FLAGSHIP STEEL MACHINE WITH THIS DESIGN...A FEW YEARS LATER ALL THEY HAD WORTH SELLING WAS THEIR NAME, HENCE THE NEW NAME AERUS.

Mine is doing the same thing. I took it to a local repair shop and was told that there was a short in the hose and the circut board may need to be replaced. I thought it was the sensor at first and bypassed it and it didn't help. The other thing I found out was that the parts have to come from electrolux because of the year that model was made. I am on the hunt for parts - good luck with yours.

For whatever reason, the switch that senses the back pressure from a full bag is not resetting properly. Make sure the seal for the new bag is completely broken (should happen "automatically" if the bag is properly aligned with the pipe on the access door). Also, make sure the access door is, in fact, completely closed.. Did you try replacing the HEPA filter as well? That is under the tray for the accessory tools. I don't think that will ultimately be the problem but you never know. The fact that the red light is blinking means that the vacuum still thinks the bag is full so there must be something not quite right with the way the new bag is installed. I found it to be a little finicky at times when we first owned ours. It is possible (though rare) to close the access door but not completely puncture the rubber gasket inside the opening to the bag. Give that a look first before trying the HEPA filter.
Good luck...that's about the depth of my knowledge.

The bag is full...replace the paper dust bag inside the canister and it will run fine. The blinking light is the full bag indicator.

Have you checked the hose for clogs or leaks. Clogged and leaky hoses are an area of concern with any central vac. Unless you hose has a hose sock, then wear and tear from constant rubbing on floors and other surfaces will result in holes and cracks. Pulling the hose can also result in leaks where the hose attaches to the handle and intake connector.
Mix some dish soap with water.
Use shop vac to blow air through hose, with other end capped or "clogged".
Apply soap solution to each end of hose.
If bubbles form, this indicates leakage. Hose will need to be replaced.

LUX RENAISSANCE WONT TURN ON. HOSE CONTROL BAG LIGHT IS ON


Could be the board in the handle but I found that a lot of the times the contacts where the handle meets the hose just need to be cleaned. It could also be a clogged hose but I'd say it's one of the other two.

My vacuum is constantly shutting itself off. When


It sounds like you have a blockage somewhere and the air is not passing over the motor to keep it cool. There is usually a thermostat mounted either on or near the motor. The blockage can be anywhere from the elbow ( the swivel part of your carpet sweeper if you have a canister vac) up thru the hose.If you have a canister vac, use a broom handle to push through the hose to clear the blockage. DO NOT ! use a coat hanger or anything that will cut or tare the hose. There are electrical wires in it that have 120 volts and causes quite a shock !
.
If you have an upright vac, start with the duct hose that comes from the part with the brush up to the hose and on to the main canister of the vac
If this does not work, take your vac to a reputable vac shop for repair. Hope this helps,
Joe

Bag was full, changed it, the unit now turns off


Try dialing the control valve to the mid way position. If the unit still shuts down with the bag full light on you have a damaged control valve under the dial on the top of the vac.
This valve failure is common in this model and can only be repaired by someone with original AERUS Electrolux repair parts, generally at an AERUS repair shop.

I was given an Electrolux vacuum model 1401-B. I would like to download a manual for it. Do you have one? Thanks, Carolyn


Carolyn, The 1401B is one of a family of US built LUX models , now sold by AERUS Electrolux. It shares common info with the MARQUISE, Super J , Olympia and 1205, etc so if you come across a used manual for any of them you will be in good shape.
Try an AERUS Electrolux dealer but the manual may be out of print.Also try a local vac shop
Quick rundown, :
Set the dial at front between medium and fine and don`t adjust, this is the bag fill control, NOT a suction control.
Only use genuine 4 ply filter bags from a pro vac shop, not grocery store grade as this is a vac which filters thru its bag.
Hang the hose for longer life, obstructions can be blown out thru plugging the hose in the blower port under the slide door behind the handle.
Inspect the power head for hair and thread and remove any visible.
When you wheels squeak while vacuming spray the axle shaft behind the neck with a drop of WD 40.
If you feel air venting thru the hose behind the handle or if it is crushed and kinked there or at the vac replace the hose for better suction. The weight of this vac weras out hoses. When the castor below the body cracks and it will, match it with a small SHEPARD castre at the hardware store.
If your rewind is sluggish, pour a tablespoon of talc or baby powder in a tissue and run it up and down the lenght of the vac cord end to end. Then drop the tissue into the vac bag fro fresh scent.....
Enjoy the vac, this one is a great one 30 year plus life span, parts are still available keep it in good repair

The beater of my kenmore vacuum won't turn on - the primary light goes on but none of the sensor lights go on.


Kenmore vacs generally have three male contacts at the machine end.Internally when the hoses swivels these contacts run on three brass rings which can also get dirty due to proximity to dirt. They can get dirty or dirt can fall into the corresponding female socket where the hose meets the vac. If you have just changed the bag inspect these connections near the intake port on the vac.
The working LED means you have a partial connection. Also try wiggling and twisting gently at the handle of the hose and where the wand connects to the hose and the power head elbow... you have 4 connections between vac and head

I need to know how to change my kirby into a blower?


Raise the light assessory on the front of the vac. Remove the roller assembly by rotating the square dial as indicated by the arrows. Then you must attach the accessory that sort of looks like a 4 inch square open box to the front of the vac where you removed the roller assembly and lock into place. Next you remove your bag assembly by unsnapping at the top of the handle to the vac, then at the base of the bag assembly you must unlock the plastic base from the metal vac unit by turning it counter clockwise and then pulling off. Finally you attach the hose assembly where you removed the bag assembly and lock into place by turning clockwise (reverse of taking off bag assembly base). Put vac in neutral and power on. Now you will blow from the hose assembly.

Electrolux Renaissance power nozzle turning on and off, brass pins hot


The deal with the Renny is that it runs off of circuit boards. Usually the problem of the main motor shutting on and off is caused by one of the Triac boards located inside the canister. Another problem could be the thermostat wire located on the inside of your motor itself. It's almost never the thermostat, so the triac board is most likely the issue.

As far as your power nozzle goes, the head eminating from the swivel body is in most cases due to an older design of the power nozzle. I would suggest investing in a new elbow assembly that includes a new swivel body as well as newer style of wiring that is proved to reduce arcing and heat production within the power nozzle.

In some cases, fixing the power nozzle will fix the problems you are experienceing with the main motor as the arcing happening in the power nozzle can in fact turn off your machine. So investing in a new elbow assembly for your power nozzle could in fact solve the problem in its entirety.

Electrolux Canister - Renaissance model


Probably a clog, because the change bag light is nothing but an airflow sensor.

Check your hoses to ensure that there are no blockages, and also check inside the powerhead behind the brushroll.
