You shouldn't have to remove disassemble the powerhead.
Lay vacuum on it's front. Between the tank and the powerhead is a black flex hose. Pull the end straight out from the powerhead. Then unscrew the tube from the tank using a clockwise turn. Remove the tube and visually check for clogs and splits. Clear or replace as needed.
If there's a clog in the powerhead behind the brush, this can be cleared using a wooden spoon handle or similar object.
If there's no clog in either place, there's a couple other possibilities. First, turn the vacuum back upright, open the hose flap, turn vacuum on, and place hand over opening to check for suction.
If there's a lack of suction, the bag needs replaced, the afterfilter beneath the bag needs cleaned, or the motor needs replaced.
If there is suction, put a coin in the opening inside the port and to the right as you're viewing the front of the vacuum. The coin should drop to the floor. A clog in thes section is unusual, but can happen.
If there is still no suction, take the vacuum to the nearest authorized Aerus Electrolux store for free diagnosis.

My upright electrolux vacuum will not suction from the wand. How can I fix this?


HI, it's Jim from Crucial Vacuum!

If your Electrolux vacuum is losing suction from its wand then most likely there is a clog in your vacuums hose.

Stretch out your vacuums hose as far as you can to unblock any clogs. If there is a clog in a hard to reach spot try using a broom handle to reach the area.

Another area to check is your unit's dust cup. Allowing for fine dust and debris to rest in your unit's dust cup for a long period may cause your unit to become clogged, which leads to poor or even no suction for your vacuum. Empty your dust filter after every use to promote optimization in your suction.

My electrolux versatility vacuum doesn't have much suction


Hello, this is Ava with Think Crucial.

If you are experience less or no suction of you vacuum, most of the time there is a blockage that clogs up your unit resulting to this. Turn off your vacuum first and unplug the machine from the power before doing any troubleshooting with your vacuum. Remove the attachment hose and check inside the hose and the openings where the hose attaches for any blockages. You may refer to your manual below for troubleshooting solutions:

Electrolux EL8505 does not have suction. Hoses have been checked. No warning lights on. Help


I had the same problem I found a clog in the hose between the beater brush and the canister. I used compressed air to unclog.

My prolux will not **** up dirt


Check the flex hose between the power head and body of the vacuum. If it's cracked, which is likely, there will be a substantial loss of suction at the brush area.
To remove, simply lay the prolux on it's side, pull out the end connected to the power head, then unscrew the end connected to the tank. Turn in a clockwise motion to do so.
To install new hose, screw into the tank in a counter-clockwise direction. When firmly in place, gently push other end into the power head. Manipulate it so it is all the way in.

Happy New Year!

I am experiencing some (not complete) loss of sunction when I use the hose


Possibilities:
Dirty filter, needs cleaned or replaced.
Partially clogged hose, needs cleared. Detach hose from tank and drop marble down the end of the hose. It should roll through the hose and power head to the floor.
Partial clog in the power head between where hose attaches and the brush. Detach hose from power head and drop marble into opening. If the marble doesn't roll through, there's a clog that needs removed. You may need to disassemble the power head to do so.
Leaky hose, needs replaced.
Clog between back of tank and filter. This is where the hose attaches to the tank. Remove clog.
Clogged filter at bottom of tank, needs cleaned. Remove tank. There's a screen at the bottom of the tank/vacuum. Simply remove/clean anything that may be covering/clogging any of the holes.
