To be honest, It's simpler to take it to any vac shop to replace at a nominal cost than it is to explain how to through all of the steps to do so yourself but I'll try. Basically, remove 6-7 screws from the bottom of the nozzle head, take a medium flat bladed screwdriver and gently pry back on two accessible internal tabs in the bottom rear of the nozzle head in order to pop the top of the power head off. Remove the top and there you'll see how easy it is to change. You can use a 15W or 25W bulb. Reassemble and VOILA! You're back in the spotlight! Hope it helps!
Best case scenerio....check and replace the bag...try it. If no bag, it won't start. If that's not it, could be the on/off button or rocker needs replaced and worse case scenerio, the motor is OUT!... I can help! email@example.com
Set the vacuum on the table, bench, etc. on it's wheels, remove the bag and leave the compartment lid open. All internal components are accessed by removing the two rubber side bumpers on either side of the vacuum. This is done by sliding a wide blade screwdriver at the back of the bumper in between the bumper and the plastic rear of the vac and tapping forward with a rubber mallot. Just be careful. After removing the two rubber side bumpers, turn vacuum over on it's back and pull the bottom off but only after pulling about 2 feet of the retractable cord out for clearance. You may then access the cordwinder to replace. I have replacement cordwinders available for you.
The most likely cause is a plug in either the hose, wands, or neck of the power nozzle. If there is a plug in the line, the brushes on the nozzle just kick the dirt around. Eliminate each piece by attaching the hose to the unit first to ensure there is strong suction at the end of the hose. Then check each of the wands. Lastly, look down the neck of the power nozzle. Many times items like toothpicks, pine needles, pins, nails or bottle caps will lodge themselves in the lines, causing dirt and debris to pack around them. Most plugs can be fished out easily, but some may require you to take the unit in to a vacuum repair shop.
This is a problem with the connection in the wands and the powerhead. Because they are shorting out you may have to replace the neck on the power nozzle. (Leave that to a pro). But you will definatly have to purchase a new wand as replacement wires are not sold for newer models. That is assuming it's a electrolux like pictured.
This vacuum has a 10 year warranty on the motor, and 5 years on everything else. Look in the yellow pages under vacuums, for the AERUS dealer, that is the new name for the traditional Electrolux company.....
