My daughter dropped the canister vacuum and it came completely apart. I have everything back together except the electrical wiring. Can anyone tell me where I can find a wiring diagram for an electrolux canister vacuum?

    This is an Electrolux model 1401-B.

    Looked into the back end of the vacuum and see a sparking tiny flame when the vacuum is on. Is this an electrical problem or something I never notice before?

The easiest solution would be to call your local Aerus/ Electrolux representative, because the corporation doesnt publish diagrams.

I have a Dyson I took out the screws to clean it before I opened the canister now I can not get it together again


You're a bit unclear on what screws you took apart to 'clean it'. If you took the canister apart, then this Snapguide page
How to Clean Dyson DC07 Canister goes through taking the top section thoroughly apart, and has some notes about things needing to line back up properly, which might help in the event that you're not getting things to snap back together right. I took mine apart solo after picking it up cheap at a flea market, and also recall reassembling the top took a little patience.

Good Luck!

It stopped working while I was using it . I tried to plugged in different electric outlets but it still dead. What should I do or look into in order to get it back to normal?? thanks


I would start by taking the wand apart. Be sure vac is unplugged from the wall outlet! You should be left with two pipe pieces, and the beater bar. I would also pull the hose from the canister unit itself. Once all the pieces are pulled apart, check the two or three prong wire connectors on each piece, both the female and male ends. If you have any dielectric grease, use a dab on each electrical connection. Once you reassemble, and still not powering up, wiggle the wand back and forth at the connection near the canister, and after the hose near where the switch is. If the vac cuts on after wiggling it, then you have a loose connection, and will need to tighten the female ends on the electrical connections, by squeezing them together slightly with a pair of pliers. Please rate if this works or does not work. Thanks!

Henry's switch has come out.I found the red switch and 2 bent bits of metal. How do they fit together to make him work again?


Rather than coming out, it sounds more like the switch has come apart. It also sounds like you haven't got all the bits. Even if you'd got everything, and knew how to assemble it, there's a good chance it will come apart again anyway. The only safe thing to do is get a complete new switch.
I value your feedback, so please remember to rate this response. Good luck!

After using the kemore vac it shuts off depending on how I m pulling on the tube part, it seems like there's a short where. Any help Thans,Steve the canister connects to the suction tube


This is a very common problem on your series of Kenmore canister vacuums. It is the result of a part inside the handle of the hose (where you would have your hand) which has broken and no longer properly supports and keeps in place the electrical receptacle that feeds electricity from the canister to the power head. If you provide a model number, I can provide an exploded parts diagram which will show you the likely culprit.

I need to reassemble my rainbow e series electrified hose handle


Yes, it is a ground wire. When you put it back together, make sure that the two halves of the hose handle are holding the wire up against the metal. I just had one apart the other day for the first time and if I recall correctly, the wire goes near the center for reassembly. Hope this helps!

Wiring schmatic for kenmore canistar vacuum


Generally, there are two wires inside the unit which connect to the wiring going down the suction hose.  Since the unit is a/c...it doesn't matter which of them goes to which terminal.  The wires are switched in some cases.  Look for the open terminal.

Hep! My 3 month old Hoover Mach 5 doesn't pick up!


What is happening is the secondary filters, HEPA and the canister all need to be cleaned. This is vital. What the vacuum repair people are keeping from you is that tidbit of wisdom. This particular vacuum is picky about airflow. Pull the canister, and on the body of the vacuum on top of where the canister sits are the secondary filters. There should be a sticker explaining how to remove them. Clean them throuougly, mine was filthy. Make sure you clean the canister by unlocking it and cleaning out the micro holes and the cone end. Mine was completely plugged. Now brush the dirty side of the HEPA filter with the combo tool. Let the secondary filters dry completely (you can blow dry them on cold) Re-install everything, and the vacuum will run like brand new. I vacuumed the whole house after I completed this maintainence and it works like a champ. Don't return this vac until you clean it completely.
