If this is the same one as what is pictured in the picture next to your description, then this is a common problem.

For starters you will want to disconnect the power brush from the wands or poles.
Look on the neck piece, towards the front of the neck, you are looking for either a screw, or a round cover. If its a round cover, you want to remove it to reveal the screw, and then remove the screw.
Once the over is off you should see 2 wires, brown and orange. They should both be connected to the pins for the electrical connection on the power head.

What I suspect here is that the wires are 1) off 2) broken. If they are off, just replace it onto the pins and your good to go. If the wires are broken, you will have to fix those wires. Fixing the wires is not so bad, you do have to make sure there is no exposed wire when your done, however, soldering them and taping them is not uncommon.

Good luck,
Mark

Canister vacuum


Without the make or model... We are speaking in GROSS GENERALITIES... but

ELECTRICAL Trouble...
The light & the BRUSH not working ... when considered TOGETHER.. would indicate a NEED to check your electrical connections...

My best advise would be to:
make sure the cords & wands are fully connected
make sure the (HEAD) motor is running ...

If the motor (brush head) is running... belt looks good and brush is not seized (or jammed)...

You will need to look to the DRIVE PULLEY on the motor OUT-PUT shaft...

Hope this helps

My broan cv30 purchased in 1996 carpet power head unit sucks up dirt and rocks but will not pick string or yarns up from carpeting. I find myself picking it up. It is sucking fine dirt and small...


It's possible you simply need a new belt or roller brush. Place the power nozzle upside-down turn the vacuum on. Ensure the brush turns. If it doesn't, the belt has broken or is too worn to turn it. Replace the belt. Make sure the tension is properly set prior to reassembling the power nozzle.
Next, with the power nozzle upside down, run the flat of your palm across the brush area. If you can barely feel the bristles, it needs replaced. A good brush will loosen the yarn and strings, but needs to be cleaned periodically.
As long as the powerhead motor is running, there is no need to replace it. If it's not running, look for a reset button and press it. There could also be a broken wire, loose connection, or bad switch causing a power head motor to not operate..

The head on my guardian suddenly quit working while I was using it. The reset button seems stuck up. Are their any more reset buttons


No, that's the only one. Make sure there is nothing wrapped around the roller brush. If so, clear it. Try pressing the reset button, then start machine. If nothing, there's good possibility the switch is broken or worn out. I recommend taking to the nearest Aerus Electrolux store to allow the service tech to check it, and repair if necessary.
If you don't know where the nearest store is, follow instructions on following site.
You can also call and ask for someone to pick up the machine and take in. Just be sure to let them know you are absolutely NOT going to buy a new machine. Yours should have lots of years left in it, especially with some periodic cleaning and maintenance.

Brush bar is scratching hardwood floors. It seems too low!


Hello, this is Ava with Think Crucial.

There are a number of reasons why your brush roller is not working properly. General maintenance to your vacuum is crucial and will help it work at peak performance.

First things first lets focus on the brush roller. Unplug the vacuum and turn it on its side. Look for any noticeable clumps of debris or hair strands that may be caught in the brush roller. Remove these obstructions, probably best to do so with a scissor if it's hair or long pieces of carpet fibers. After removing the debris try manually rotating the brush roller to uncover other hidden clogs. Another thing to take note of is the condition of the bristles on the roll itself. Are they loose or worn down? These are signs that your brush roller is in need of replacing.

While checking out your brush roll you might as well take a look at your vacuums belt. Your belt should be replaced about every three months. After regular usage, the belt will stretch out, lessening the tension on the brush roller. Lesser tension diminishes the brush roller's turn rate and speed. If the belt feels loose then it certainly is affecting your vacuums suction as well as your brush roll not moving at all.

How do you access the belt on the electrolux guardian


Flip the power head upside down and look for 5 black screws recessed in the bottom of the head...2 mid way back and 3 along the brush area. Once removed the lid should lift off. Be careful not to disturb the wiring harness.
The brush roll has a pulley and bearing end. Both should be cleaned and any hair or thread removed. The motor screws will have tensioning positions for the new belt so leave enough slack so the new belt depresses slightly. You will find a replacement at vac shop or thru AERUS Electrolux dealers

Just bought new power head electrolux guardian and


Did you get new wands with the power nozzel? The wires that power the nozzel run through the wands from the hose to the nozzel.The connectors at the end of the wires are fomous for getting too big and making a bad connection. This causes the on/off problem. This will only get worse if you continued use. The wires in the hose handle, the hose and the power nozzel elbow can all be changed out. You will not have to replace the hose handle or the wands unless the plactic has been burned. (A loose electrical connection causes heat). Take your hose,wands and nozzel to the shop for repair. Don't let the sales/service manager tell you that you need new parts until you can see the parts are bad. I think they saw you comming when they sold you the new nozzel.(just my opinion)

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.

Fantom Lighting Power Head


The red light tells you that that there is a clog, either in the hose or down by the brush roll. The smell if it is rubber smelling, then it is the belt and maybe the brush roll. If it is an electrical smell, then probably the motor. But parts for these are always available, they went bankrupt several years ago and aren't in business anymore.

Dirt Devil vacuum sucks... figuratively


Well, I guess your visitors have come and gone, but the vacuum remains the same. It sounds like you have a broken or worn belt. The belt should be changed once a year (approx) and can break if something is picked up that jams the brush. It is also possible that you have something obstructing the vacuum inlet at the brush housing.
If the belt is worn, it can still look o.k., but won't have the tension to turn the roller when it engages the carpet. I suspect the belt is your trouble.
