Question about Electrolux Vacuums
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.
