Question about Vacuums

1 Answer

I was changing a light bulb with one of those metal extension rods that unscrew and screw back in the replacement bulbs. It evidently didn't seat correctly and pulled off the bulb and created a quick "poof" type electrical short. I have switched out that bad bulb with a new one and can't get either the fan or lights to work. There doesn't appear to be a reset switch. I also swirched out the wall switch to see if that would make a difference and it does not. Any thoughts or ideas would be appreciated. Bobby

If you have not already done so, I would check at the fuse or circuit breaker panel to see if you have blown a fuse or tripped a breaker.

Replace headlight bulb


Usually there is a small Phillips screw under the plastic lamp cover. Remove that, remove the cover and unscrew the bulb. Replace the cover and the screw.

Some covers may have a slot or two slots and you need a slim screwdriver in each slot to push back some locking tabs to release the cover. Don't push too hard or they might snap off.

Is this a sewing machine? Plastic covers can be tricky to remove. Look for deeply set screws in deep holes, as well as screws that might become visible after removing covers. Sometimes the screws holding the rubber feet on will also secure the cover.

The motor on my carpet tool (beater brush) stopped running yesterday. The main vacuum still works, but the switch for the carpet tool just clicks and doesn't turn it on.


Knowing the model would help.
Possible problems:
Broken or disconnected wire in hose, connections, power nozzle.
Hose needs replaced. Check all connections for discoloration and cracked supports. Have power nozzle checked at a vacuum shop. Depending on the model, take it to an authorized Aerus Electrolux store for this.
Bad power nozzle motor Needs replaced.
Bad switch. Take the whole machine in for thorough check and repair..

How do I change the belt on Eureka Pet Pal


Unlike most vacuums, this one the screws are on the top of your base. There are two screws one on each side. When looking at the front of the vacuum right side screw is located above the s in 12amps and on the left side screw is located above the p in pet. Now keep in mind it's not directly above the letters look about 2 inches up. Unscrew them, take cover off. Once you have done that pull up on the brush rod. Maybe tough if ur vacuum has a lot of built up dirt. Next put belt on metal prong then put on brush rod. Place rod back in its spot, gonna need little bit of muscle. Then put top back on and replace screws. Plug in flip bottom just to make sure brush is spinning. If u have followed steps this should work. I hope this helped took me forever to find the screws because I have always had vacuum with them on the bottom and internet was no help to me. Good luck

How replace lightbulb on carpet beater (Electrolux central vac). Can't find any screws near light


To replace the bulb you will have to remove the power nozzle cover. Remove the cover by extracting the screws from the bottom. Take notice of which screw comes from which hole. Depending on the year, one screw may be shorter than the others. If put back in the wrong place, the screw will come through the cover when replaced. Once the cover is removed it's easy to replace the bulb. Make sure everything is lined up when reassembling.

I have a Fantom Fury, and I cannot get the cover off of the motor assembly. Do you have any drawings or schematics that would help me accomplish this?


first need to open two light bulb covers with a screw drive and you will see two small screws. Remove the light bulbs and unscrew two small screws. After that, you can move the cover off.
