    The recess in the head appears six-sided like your pic with a bump in the center.

It's not a particular tool, it's simply a type of screwdriver bit. They are called either "Torx" or T-Star and come in a range of sizes, e.g. T15, T20, T25, T30, etc.

I think the one on your vacuum is a T20, but it's hard to remember the size of every screw on every appliance. I've attached a picture below to assist you. If this isn't the right tool, please describe the shape of the recess in the head of the screw and I will post back with the correct answer.

Regards,
BElectric

    The recess appears to be a six-sided star, but with a bump in the center.

    Ah yes, it's a Security Torx Head screw. You need a Security Torx screwdriver / bit. Ask your local hardware store or search online for a supplier. They are fairly easy to get hold of - I'm pretty sure the size you need is T20 but it's best to buy a set of various size bits and a bit holder. Shouldn't cost you more than $10 delivered. http://cgi.ebay.com/380285664346

Remove handle from hose electrolux


You don't have to "remove" the handle from the hose to attach other attachments, just depress the tab at the end of the hose and pull the upper wand loose then use the "adapter" to use the dusting brush or simply snap the crevice tool in place to use. If the handle won't come loose from the upper wand, then the described "tab" needs replaced as it's locking up the parts. Hope that helps!

I just need the part number for my Guardian Electrolux model C134A i ran over the Hose and that was the part that broke. i need to compare prices so i can determine if it is cost effictive to change the...


The part number for the hose is 47086.
The best thing to do is contact the nearest Aerus Electrolux dealer.
If it's just the switch or handle that broke, it will be more cost effective to have that replaced. If I remember right, the hose costs close to $200 new. A new switch may cost up to $20, but probably quite a bit less.
The nearest Aerus store can be located using the below link.

How do you replace the 'after filter' in the electrolux guardian?


1. Press latch and open the door that covers the tools.
2. Squeeze clips at front of tool tray, lift and remove.
3. Remove filter.
4 Replace filter.
5. Replace tool tray and close door..

Instructions can be found in the Renaissance manual, which you can download from the following site. Go to "older models", find Renaissance and click on it, then click "download". Instructions are on page 9. The Renaissance is basically the same model as the Guardian.

LUX RENAISSANCE WONT TURN ON. HOSE CONTROL BAG LIGHT IS ON


Could be the board in the handle but I found that a lot of the times the contacts where the handle meets the hose just need to be cleaned. It could also be a clogged hose but I'd say it's one of the other two.

Electrolux renaissance how to change power headlight


You will need to remove 5 recessed screws from the underside of the head, Then remove the cover and examine the bulb.
You may need to find an AERUS Electrolux service center for parts. Might as well clean out all the dust around the motor and remove and inspect the belt while you are in there.. Check the belt tension before loosening

RENAISSANCE HOSE/VAC


THE RENAISSANCE IS KNOWN FOR HAVING PROBLEMS WITH THE CIRCUIT BOARD IN THE HANDLE.YOU'LL NOTICE THAT MODELS THAT CAME AFTER THAT HAD SLIDING SWITCHES. UNFORTUNATELY THE NEW HOSE DESIGN WON'T WORK ON YOUR MACHINE BECAUSE THE CIRCUIT BOARD INSIDE THE MACHINE WAS CHANGED TOO.AERUS MAY OR MAY NOT STILL MAKE THE PARTS YOU NEED. OTHER WISE LOOK ON E-BAY FOR A NEW HOSE.
ELECTROLUX FOOLISHLY REPLACED IT'S FLAGSHIP STEEL MACHINE WITH THIS DESIGN...A FEW YEARS LATER ALL THEY HAD WORTH SELLING WAS THEIR NAME, HENCE THE NEW NAME AERUS.

Electrolux Renaissance Hose Replacement


Notice how the hose has a groove just around the outer edge of the gray plastic near the white plastic insert. The hose is held into the handle buy two "tongues" inserted into this groove. One of these tongues is on the end of the top plastic piece of the handle. The second is on the piece of plastic that is slid into the little hole at the base of the handle and it is visible in the picture.

To remove the first, you'll have to remove the two screws in the top of the handle that hold the top plastic piece. This can be a challenge unless you have the right tool. It's essentially a hex-star allen wrench tool that is required, I'm guessing about 1/16 inch. I had one in my tool box that fit. Remove the screws and pop the top plate off. This frees the first tongue from the groove. Now, just get a screw driver (or use your finger) to press the plastic piece inserted in the hole at the bottom of the handle. Press from the "t" side and this should slide right out. Now your hose will slide right out of the handle and you can replace the old with new. Re-insert the small plastic insert, and refasten the top plastic piece of the handle and you're good to go.
