No, you just need to clean the connections - or make certain you have a good connection.

Dc17 won't turn on


there is a reset button under the cover that houses the on/off switches. remove the handle/wand and look on the back (where the top of the hose sits) for 2 screws (its a torx/star head screw size t10 i believe). remove them and locate 4 small locking tabs that hold the switch cover to the frame of the vacuum. Depress them and pop the cover off (2 towards the top and 2 towards the bottom). Youll see 3 switches (2 square red buttons and one small cylindrical shaped one). Push the small red one (the one to the left if my memory serves me right). you should hear a click. if you do than the switch is reset. if not check all connections to all 3 switches. if you see nothing loose or not connected, you may need a new brushbar motor.

Was using kenmore whispertone stopped suddenly disconnected brush unit will not switch on ????


if you took the hose out of the wand assembly then it may not turn on as the hose handle has a power button on it and must be connected to turn on the unit.Also check the powerhead for a reset button (small red / or black button on the back of the head){back of head not the bottom}

Hi, try pushing the reset button with a pen or paper clip. If that doesn't work, the motor may need to replaced. If the reset button is stuck, if the reset button is stuck, use a pair of tweezers to pull it back out......

Secondly, your belt can also be broken or has come off the pulley. Remove the bottom plate and investigate.

The power head will not turn. I tried to reset by pushing the red reset button and nothing happened. I could not depress it.


If the button could not be depressed, it was most likely not tripped.
First, check to see that the drive belts are on the machine and have tension on the roller for the power head. Second, check to see that you can turn the brush on the power head by hand. If you can not, you need to remove it and clean it of any debris, paying special attention to the two end pieces that hold it in place. If possible, squirt a little WD40 on these end pieces to make sure they are loose and can be turned by hand. Check the connections that power the motor on the power head.
Let me know if you have any trouble and I will gladly help you further. I do not charge for my assistance.

first check the reset button on the head . next connect the hose directly to the head if its a cannister make sure your hose switch is on . if your mechanically inclined remove the screws on the bottom plate and remove the top with the hose disconnected directly connect the reset switch wires with a small piece of electrical tape connect your hose turn the vac on if it comes on either a buy a new reset switch b save money skin the wires and connect them . if that doesn't work go to the nozzel motor with the hose disconnected cut the lead wires leave plenty of slack connect an old electrical cord to the two terminals plug into a 110 outlet if it comes on your problem is in your elbow neck about $19.00 it is the part that your wands connect to if the motor doesn't come on then its your pn motor and it will need replaced $34-$50 dollars . connect everything back the way it was using correct sized wire taps and ul approved electrical tape put your screws in a safe place they are easy to use parts are avaiable on ebay cheaper than anywhere else . if you feel this job is too big contact me and i will repair it for $20.00 plus parts

Carpet attachment with beater brush not working


Resolution for Quick Connect Power Nozzle: If you're vacuum is 2001 prior, chances are one of the two contacts in the power nozzle elbow have let go.

The elbow can be disassembled by removing the two screw covers. You will need a flat head and small star. Also, you need to release the retaining clip on the back of the elbow. You will have to remove the elbow completely if it needs replacement. You will then have to remove the top cover of your power nozzle. That is easily done by removing all screws in the bottom base of your nozzle. Once you remove your cover you should see 2-4 screws holding in the elbow

When you remove the cover, you will see metal contact rings and two contacts. If one of them isn't contacting the ring your power nozzle will not turn on. You can try shaping it back into place but from experience the new revised elbow that does away with that kind of connectivity is a lot more effective. The new elbow runs about $40-$60. Between eBay and Aerus Electrolux Dealer.

The guardian is the most complex vacuum I've ever worked on. The technology exceeds all others. Usually the problem is with the computer board in the handle. My suggestion is to take it to the nearest Aerus Electrolux dealer. http://www.aerushome.com/storelocator/

The beater does not work. the restart button is not burnt or the switch


Remove the hose and reinstall using the alignment arrow at the top of the hose insert. Be sure the hose clicks securely and does not twist or rotate right or left.
Then remove the power head from the wand and eliminate the wand. Plug the head directly onto the hose and plug the cord into the wire socket under the hose.
Flip the switch on the head fully back and forth to see if the head will run without the wand. If it runs put the wand back in place and inspect electrical connections and plug terminals when reinstalling. Post back with what you see and results

Miele SEB-213 powerbrush stopped working


Pull the head cover off to check the belt, if the belt is ok then it might be the power connection between the handle and the power head shaft. If the red light is on the power head, then its not the connection
because its getting power. Now some heads have a reset button on them,you could check this also.
With the cover off the power head, remove the belt, now turn it on, and be careful, but try to make the motor shaft spin,with one finger, because if it does start to spin you do not want to hurt your finger.

If the motor starts to spin,put the belt back on, if it does not spin again, the motor is too weak.
If it does not spin at all, the motor is bad.Hope this helps you,and you get it working.
