Need to twist hose to keep power on

When vacuuming, the power doesn't stay on. To keep it on, we need to twist the hose at the point where it enters the handle assembly to keep it turned on. Any suggestions? I took the handle assembly apart as best I could, but I didn't see anything obvious that was frayed or disconnected.

The loose connection will be internally and in some cases is not detected visually.
Do you have any connector where they connect together?

Hose in DYSON too tight and hard to pull out


The problem is not a twisted hose. The hose itself is way too stiff. It pulls the vacuum around instead of expanding to reach. I hate this hose and it's too bad, because the vacuum works well, but trying to use the hose attachment it futile because it just doesn't stretch out unless the vacuum is pinned up against something to keep it from rolling and tipping over.

Was using vacuum and sock is now lodged in vacuum hose. How can I get the sock out?


The easiest way to remove an article of clothing from the hose is to remove one end of the hose from the vacuum, and reach in with a piece of wire with the end bent into a hook. A wire coathanger will work well for this. Just straighten out the coathanger, take a pair of pliers, and put a small bend at the end of the wire, in a J, or hook shape. Then, reach the wire into the hose, and when you feel the obstruction, twist the wire, so that the hook gets stuck on the sock. Then, pull it out, and reattatch the end of the hose back on the vacuum.
It doesn't matter which end of the hose you remove, just whichever is easier, and hopefully closest to the clog.

Do not try to push it out, as it will just bunch up tighter. It must be pulled out.

Power brush keeps going off and on ,when off i keep pressing red button and switches on ...stays on if you keep it up slightly and not fully down


Just had the same problem. Took apart whole power head to look for broken wire and found none. If you see part way up the hose there is a coller with 4 torx screws holding together. This collar is a swivel that allows the hose to spin without twisting or kinking. Take the 4 screws out and open up. You will see 3 contacts that look like fingers that rub on 3 mating steel rings. Wipe the tips of the fingers and wipe clean the rings. Gently bend the fingers out wards so that they apply more pressure to the steel rings. Reassemble and try. Should take no more than 15 mins. Worked for me good luck!

When I vacuum with the power nozzle, it keeps cutting off. Do I need to replace the hose or the power nozzle?


Not necessarily. It's hard to tell without checking it out. I strongly recommend taking it to an authorized Aerus Electrolux store and letting the service tech check it.
If you have the "Sidekick", you can try using it. If it still cuts out, it's the hose. If not, the wiring in the power nozzle is loose or worn and needs to be replaced.
Keep in mind that you may not need to replace the hose or power nozzle, just have some wiring repaired.

Electrolux central vaccum works sporadically


The the hose, wands and power nozzle to the nearest AERUS store for repair. You have a short that needs to be fixed. They should just be able to replace the wire assemblies inside the wands, handle and power nozzle.

Canister vacuum keeps turning off, can push buttons on wand handle to restart but shuts off again as soon as you start to move handle


its sounds like the problem is either the power head wire which when your using it and twisting it left and right, turns it off.. Or it could be in the hose where the connect meets with the unit.
