Did you get new wands with the power nozzel? The wires that power the nozzel run through the wands from the hose to the nozzel.The connectors at the end of the wires are fomous for getting too big and making a bad connection. This causes the on/off problem. This will only get worse if you continued use. The wires in the hose handle, the hose and the power nozzel elbow can all be changed out. You will not have to replace the hose handle or the wands unless the plactic has been burned. (A loose electrical connection causes heat). Take your hose,wands and nozzel to the shop for repair. Don't let the sales/service manager tell you that you need new parts until you can see the parts are bad. I think they saw you comming when they sold you the new nozzel.(just my opinion)

SOURCE: My electrolux O3 carpet power head keeps shorting

If your unit is like ours, there is a electrical short in the wand to Hose connection.. dont use it.. ours unit shorted out and sparks were everywhere.. burned thru the wand to the inside of it and the outside. Good thing my lovely wife wasn't touching that part. electrocution risk was Extreme. PESTER ELECTROLUX, they drag their heels when it comes to admitting and making it right.

How to put back togeather a electrolux el6989


Did you take it apart, or did somebody else? Those can be tricky. Take it to your local vac shop and have it assembled. I've been working on vacs for nearly 30 years and I can tell you, that is one of the worst ones to get together.

The red light on my electrolux vacuum comes on and cuts power.


If the bag full light keeps coming on, you can first try adjusting the dial on top of the vacuum cleaner. If that does not work, then you need to change the control valve. This is an internal component of the canister and is directly below the dial. You will need to follow the instructions on a previous post to open the Electrolux plastic canister vacuum, and remove the bage cage. Once you remove the bage cage you can change the control valve, and this will solve your problem with the bag full indicator.

The power head keeps shorting out during use. one of the connecting prongs from the handle to the power head is black instead of silver and is smaller in diameter like it has been arcing inside the...


This is a problem with the connection in the wands and the powerhead. Because they are shorting out you may have to replace the neck on the power nozzle. (Leave that to a pro). But you will definatly have to purchase a new wand as replacement wires are not sold for newer models. That is assuming it's a electrolux like pictured.

WARNING WARNING Danger danger Will Robinson! The power head "wand" and the hose from the body of the vacuum have shorts in them. While my wife was using this machine.. she started smelling plastic.. seeing whitish smoke and then sparks... The pin connector arc'd through the plastic... Some research on Google found that this has been a large problem for Electrolux, when i tried to call the factory.. robots.... no solution. Then I contacted a distributor and they informed me that it was not really that big of a problem. Only later to say, that they had replaced ALOT of them. My unit was past its warranty period so I just hardwired it. (now the unit is only two pieces, body and hose w/wand.)

Hello, My Electrolux Renaissance is about 12 years old. It worked great for years, but now it keeps turning itself off...about every 15 seconds or so. The bag was just changed recently, too. Is there...


Odds are you have an obstruction somewhere. Check all of the hoses and the power head to ensure that there is nothing blocking your airflow.

Also note that if it keeps popping the front bag door open, that's usually indicative of either the bag being full or not being installed properly, which can give you the same results, so try taking the bag out and popping it back in just to make sure everything is aligned correctly.

The problem is that Electrolux sold a portion of the company to Eureeka, so the Electrolux you are familiar with is under the name Aerus-Electrolux. Aerus vacuums are still produced with the same high quality as always, and still are made in the USA!!!
