My guess is that hair, threads, and/or similar long fine fibers have gotten wrapped around the ends of the brush near where the bearings are. The PN may need to be disassembled to remove them. Be aware that if the vacuum is less than 5 years old, disassembly by anyone other than an authorized service tech will void the remaining warranty.
My recommendation is to take it to an authorized Aerus Electrolux store and let the tech perform a free service check. He/she can let you know what the problem is and for a nominal charge, probably repair it on the spot.

I have a Electrolux Guardian Encore E and the power head quit working. It has suction power head off and all other attachments work.


Hi,
Try this. Remove the power nozzle from the lower wands. Remove the wands from the hose handle. Snap the power nozzle directly to the hose. Make sure all switches are turned on and try it. If the power nozzle now works, there's an issue with one or both of the wands. If the power head does NOT work, you've secluded the problem to the power head. With that being said and although it could be a power nozzle switch or a wire that disconnected inside, it's most likely the power nozzle Elbow assembly wiring that's worn out. This has been an issue with this model after so many years and you simply need to replace the Elbow assembly.
I hope this helps and let me know if I can be of any more help.

Electrolux power head not working no power


There are four points of connection to get power to the nozzle, any one of which can cause this condition, or an on/off condition. They are the connections in the neck of the machine itself where the hose is inserted in front. The second is underneath the hose handle, where it connects to the two pronged sheath cord. The third is at the lower end of the sheath cord where the power nozzle cord connects. The last is the reset itself. That's what I check first when one of them is brought into my shop, because, believe it or not, most people don't know that there's even a reset there. If the little red button is sticking up push it down firmly but not hard. It's possible to push the bottom right out of the reset unit itself. If the nozzle doesn't activate after pressing the reset, start by disconnecting the power cord that goes to the wands. Check for blackened, enlarged connection openings, or charged, blackened prongs. If no problems found there, continue on up the handle checking each connection point for these conditions. If you find the problem at any of the connection points both parts must be replaced, the male and the female ends. That usually means replacing the cords themselves, as the ends are not available separately. If the power nozzle still refuses to run you or a qualified repair person will need to open it up to check the motor itself to see if it's any good. Once the faulty part,(s) are found and replaced it should start right back up and run normally.

Carpet rollers dont work


Hi There,

Yes, there is a reset switch on your Electrolux. This particular model also has some problems with the wands on the machine as well. Sometimes these wands will short out, preventing the power nozzle from working.

Try pushing the reset switch first to see if this fixes your problem. The reset switch is located on the power nozzle on the right hand side if you're looking down on it. It will be a little red pole, simply push this pole downwards, possible using a ball point pen is the easiest way.

If this didn't fix your problem, then it could be a few different things. The wands on your model are problematic, and should be the next thing that you test. Simply remove the wands from the power nozzle, and you can use a simply electrical tester purchased from Home Depot, and put the testers into the female receptacles on the end of each section of wand to ensure that power is getting down to the brush.

It may also be that your hose has gone bad. If you test both wand sections, and no power is getting through, remove both wand sections and test the female electrical connections on the end of the hose handle.

If you're not getting power here, this indicates that your hose has gone bad and needs to be replaced. We do carry all of the hoses for the Electrolux canisters, and most likely have the one for yours in stock. Please feel free to contact me if you need any further help.

Thank you,

I assume that you are talking about the power head for cleaning carpets. If so I have a spare.

Electrolux power nozzle not working


the powerhead gets its power through a connector adjacent to the hose connection to the vacuum end. there's two wires embedded in the hose which make its way to the handle, pipe and powerhead. take apart the handle and see if you can read continuity from one end to the handle switch.

Power nozzle not working on my vac but does on another vac


Is there a reset button somewhere on the power nozzle? Most of these have a breaker to prevent the motor from burning out.
