Is it only the power head that's not working, or the central vacuum itself? Disconnect wands from hose, turn on, and hold hand over hose end to check for suction. If none, go through first set of steps below.

If the vacuum:
1. Press reset button on vacuum.
2. Check circuit breaker at the circuit box to make sure it's ON.
3. Make sure the unit is plugged in completely.
4. Use a voltage tester to check for power at the outlet.
5. Check filter. If dirty rinse it with warm water, and allow to dry thoroughly. I strongly suggest having a second filter for use during drying, then just trade off using them.

If the vacuum still doesn't turn on, consider the following:]
Broken or worn out power switch in hose handle...Switch needs replaced.
Broken wire in hose...Replace hose.
Bad connection...Needs taken to an authorized Aerus service center for check and repair.

If the power nozzle (suction at end of hose, but power nozzle doesn't work:
1. Ensure the brush has been thoroughly cleaned of any hair, string, and other items that may have wrapped around it.
2. Power nozzle motor runs, but brush doesn't turn when vacuum is on...belt needs replaced.
3. Power nozzle motor does not run...All wiring, connections, and motor need to be checked.

If you can't determine the problem with the above helps, the entire machine, including hose, wands, and power nozzle, needs to be taken to an authorized Aerus service center for complete check.
If you don't know the location of the nearest Aerus Electrolux store, go to below site, type in zip code, and click on "view dealer list". They may also be able to send someone to pick it up.

The reset button on the "sweeper" is only to start the "sweeper" motor after it has shut off due to the brush getting jammed. It doesn't effect the vacuum operation.

Loss of suction between hose and bare floor/carpet sweeper portion


Your machine is plugged up internally.
Here where I live, a city of 1 million, people throw away an average of 20 vacuum cleaners a day because they do not know how to unclog them, or choose not to do so.
You will need to take it all apart for this job.
God bless your efforts.

My Miele Redstar power sweeper attachment is not getting electrical "juice". Doesn't light up when plugged in. What's wrong?


Reattach the hose to the base unit. This is most common issue with ours. Then do the same with the wand to hose connection. Has it come loose by chance? Ours does not have a reset on the power sweeper but some may. Look for a reset switch and press it in.

Wand attached to hose - how do you detach? Kenmore central vacuum system model s107 34730


Many central vacuums have similar or the same parts made by a small number of manufacturers. I found the MD Central Vacuum website to be very helpful and I hope it solves your problem. I have attached pictures and descriptions from their website so you can see if this is what your wand looks like. If so, to separate the wand from the floor brush unit there should be a lever or button on the brush housing you can push with your foot to release the wand. If you are asking about where the wand connects to the hose you push that black button that you see at the top of the wand in the picture, the top smaller black part. I hope this helps.

I have an open in the black wire leading down to the carpet sweeper (after the handle), thus the motor wont turn on. how do i get to the wiring to re-run a black wire?


Did you test the wire with the switch in the "ON" position. If not, try it before opening the handle.
The problem is more likely to be a worn out or broken switch, including a reset switch.
Also try connecting the hose directly to the power nozzle. If it works, then the problem is problem a loose or burnt out connection in one of the wand connections. Check connections for discoloring.

Have an electrolux 2100 canister vac, it has lost suction power thru the years. no clogs in newer hose or in sweeper. even with new bag, filter and belt only increases power minimally.


Have you ever over the years replaced your brushroll ? Have you tried dropping a coin thru the hose from one end to see if it comes out the other end ? Have you taken the wand loose from the elbow ( the swivel part of your carpet sweeper) to see if there was a blockage ? Does the motor make a strange noise ? Have you ever had a tune-up on your vac.
You might think about taking your vac to your Aerus/Electrolux shop.

I have a dirt devil bagless cannister,machine will start and vacuum nicely then shut itself off probably beczause it is over heating and will not start again for at least an hour. Does this machine have a...


The vac very likely has a thermostat located near the suction motor that will stop the motor to keep it from burning itself out. These thermostats rarely go bad. You need to look for a blockage starting with the power nozzel (carpet sweeper) all the way to the canister. Take the hose from the canister and power nozzel and drop a coin in one side and see if it comes out the other end. If not, try pushing a broom stick thru to move the blockage to the other end and get it out with needle nose plyers. Don't use a coat hanger!
You can take the carpet sweeper loose from the wands and look into the elbow (part that swivels) for a blockage. It all has to do with air flow to keep the motor cool.

Canister works, vacuum doesnt


There could be a break in the electric from the machine to the hose - or from the hose to the wand - or from the wand to the Power Nozzle - or it could be the motor is bad. 

Wiggle the cord at the Hose with it running- then go to the Wand - then to the Power Nozzle. You may find a break in the wires anywhere along the line.

unplug the Vacuum:

If you have a meter check to see if the reset is working - and last check to see if the motor will work removed from the Nozzle.

BEAM Serenity Plus 2900 has shutdown


I would advise you to ALWAYS to FIRST UNPLUG YOUR VACUUM before beginning any service procedure. OK, there is a reset button on the unit but i think it could be that your vacuum could be clogged in the vacuum lines and that you should check all the inlets/outlets in your house with your vacuum hose - or get a vacuum cuff and go to each individual outlets and check the suction by feel - if the outlet is clogged you may have to call someone to unclogg it or by going to each oultlet the system may unclog it self -- or you can use a plumbers snake and be careful because the lines in a central vacuum are thinner than the walls in a plumbing situation or have it professionally unclogged by a priofessional. When you are using another vacuum to unclog the unit make sure the central vac is runing and to try to pull the clog apart from both directions. Below is a link to the factory for Beam and if you need a owners manuel for the Central Vac
