Power head hose to fit
Power head hose to fit power nozzle PN-4. Electrolux MDL 1401B

I would advise you to ALWAYS to FIRST UNPLUG YOUR VACUUM before beginning any service procedure.
I would advise because this is an older Electrolux Power Nozzle PN-4
Model #1401B that you could buy a replacement hose of which would save you money or you can spend the price for a genuine hose – replacement hoes work just fine and are less money.

I have a Electrolux Guardian Encore E and the power head quit working. It has suction power head off and all other attachments work.


Hi,
Try this. Remove the power nozzle from the lower wands. Remove the wands from the hose handle. Snap the power nozzle directly to the hose. Make sure all switches are turned on and try it. If the power nozzle now works, there's an issue with one or both of the wands. If the power head does NOT work, you've secluded the problem to the power head. With that being said and although it could be a power nozzle switch or a wire that disconnected inside, it's most likely the power nozzle Elbow assembly wiring that's worn out. This has been an issue with this model after so many years and you simply need to replace the Elbow assembly.
I hope this helps and let me know if I can be of any more help.

There is a light on the top that looks like a cord that is on. the vacuum hose attachment does not work. I just changed a bag did i do something wrong


The light with a cord "plug" on it indicates that there is power coming to the vacuum. This is normal.
Assuming that the vacuum works, but not the power nozzle, turn the PN over to view the brush. Clear all hair, thread, fibers, etc., that may be wrapped aroung the brush. Use a sharp knife or scissors to cut through them for ease of removal. Make sure the ends of the brush are cleared as well. Try the vacuum and press the reset switch on the PN. Does it work?
Is the PN motor running, but the brush isn't spinning. Turn PN over and try to spin the brush. If it turns freely, the belt is broken and needs replaced. This should be done by an authorized Aerus Electrolux service tech to avoid incorrect reassembly and resulting damage to vacuum and owner.
If the brush doesn't freely spin, but turns with resistance, this is normal.
If it still doesn't work, try the Sidekick mini power nozzle that should have come with it. If it works, but the full size PN doesn't, there's a problem with the PN. It needs to be taken to an authorized Aerus Electrolux store for diagnosis (free) and repair.
If the Sidekick doesn't work, the problem is in the hose, wands, or canister. It could be due to bad switches, wiring, and other electrical problems. In this case, the entire vacuum needs to be taken to an authorized Aerus Electrolux dealer for diagnosis and needed repairs.

My electrolux Epic 6500 power nozzle Model N109J will not work. It had an intermittent short which I thought I fixed (some of the insulation on the wires were pinched). I fixed the wires and it worked...


The switch is definitely a possibility, but other problems can also cause this.
Bad switch, needs replaced.
Broken wiring in power nozzle, wands, hose, or canister.
Bad PN motor.

I strongly recommend taking it to the nearest authorized Aerus Electrolux store for a diagnosis (should be free). Allowing them to do any repairs necessary is recommended, as well. This will ensure it's done correctly.

Connect the power nozzle directly to the hose and try.
Check the terminals where the wand connects to the PN. If any are discolored or cracked, that may be the problem.
Open the PN and check for loose or broken wires and connections. Repair or replace as necessary.
The reset switch could be broken or worn out. You can check this with a continuity tester or multimeter.
If none of these solve the problem the vacuum needs to be taken to your local Aerus Electrolux store for diagnosis and repair.

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.

The agitator brush of my central vacuum cleaner didn't roll.What's the problem of it?


If the power nozzle motor is running, then the problem is a broken belt. It's recommended that it be taken to an authorized shop for replacement.
If the PN motor is not running, locate the reset switch on top of the PN and depress. If the motor still does not come on, there's a problem in the wiring or power module. The entire machine, including hose, wands, and power nozzle needs to be taken to the nearest authorized shop for exact diagnosis and repair/replacement of parts.
If the machine is the old style Electrolux (now known as Aerus), not sold in home improvement stores, the nearest authorized store can be found on the below site. Just follow the instructions.

Need a new electrolux power nozzle model N106m


If you're looking for a new head for your vacuum. Then you're going to have to replace it with the same type of nozzle.

However, wall inlets are standard so you can purchase any kind of attachment kit and it'll fit your inlets and work with your system. Their are many online retailers that offer a wide range of kits that will fit your system.
