My wife sucked a sock up into the hose. I wasn't able to get the handle apart, but I was able to use a plumbing snake to retrieve it.

I don't recommend this for the homeowner. Take the hose in to your nearest AERUS store. It is just too easy to damage the pins and rings putting the handle back on. If you insist on trying, remove the little torx screws under the little buttons on the top side of the handle. Good LUCK and be careful. Don't force anything.

How do I remove the hose from the handle on a Lux Legacy?


You first have to knock out the plastic "plug" under the bottom of the handle and also pop off 2-3 small screw covers, about the size of a pencil eraser, on the top of the handle. Now remove the screws with the proper jewelers screwdriver or star driver and gently pull the handle apart (top and bottom). Be careful to pay attention to where the wires lay inside the handle then remove the handle from the hose. Voila! There's your answer....Hope that helps!

How can I fix my Hoover spin scrub 50 solution trigger? It is not working.


Hey there! Sounds like you have no tension in your trigger. This could mean a problem with the trigger spring or control rod in the handle. Try reassembling the handle. Remove the two handle screws and slide the handle up and off. Inspect the control rods for damages. They should be the same length. Make sure they are pulled down as well. Reassemble the handle. If the trigger still has no tension but the cleaner dispenses from the hose, a replacement handle may be needed. To replace the handle, follow the link below.

I need help removing a cat toy from the handle that connects to the hose on my vacuum? The ball seems to be stuck in the curve or just below the curve before it enters the hose.


The handle needs to be removed to do this. Taking the handle apart and especially putting it back together can be tricky, so I recommend taking it in to an authorized Aerus Electrolux store to have the item removed. If you don't put it back together properly, it could result in an electric shock, and even a fire. I have seen a totally melted hose from someone trying to dig out an object, then the hose wiring shorts out and lights up.
I dislike having a disassembled machine or part brought in to be reassembled, and finding a broken tab that requires replacing the handle or part that's brought in.
Be safe, please take it to the shop.

My floorpiece keeps turning on and off when I try and vacuum. It almost seems like it is shorting out, but it isn't. I suspect it is something to do with the handle piece attaching to the floor piece.


You are exactly correct.

What it is exactly is the hose connection to the power nozzle. The plug on the handle of the hose should be flush with the plastic piece below it. To correct this, you can open the handle and push the plug back into place. What I normally recommend is a super glue of somesort, like krazy glue.

remove the plug, glue into place and make sure that the recepticle or plug is out far enough to make a solid connection.

Good luck

How to dismantle vacuum hose at the handle with the power switch on epic 6500


Good that you didn't just pry things open. If you look closely you will see several tiny plastic caps under which will be hidden screws. Remove the screws and gently separate the "handle cover" from the main handle, then slide the handle off the hose. Clean the internal handle contacts and the rings on the hose. Reassemble by installing handle onto hose fully to align contacts, then installing wiring cover portion onto the hand grip.
Any evidence of black pitting on the rings needs to be polished with fine sandpaper and the finger contacts adjusted for tension to eliminated further shorting. After cleaning, you can apply a very thin film of petroleum jelly to the contact rings for smoother rotation.

I have an Aerus lux 7000 and there is something stuck in the hose. I've tried prying it out with a hanger and only succeeded in getting it further down the hose. Is there a way to get the handle off of the...


DON'T try a coat hanger again it could tear the sidewall of the hose. Never push and obstruction in a vac
You have a swivel handled hose. The handle will separate by removing several small screws buried under rubber buttons on the handle. The pieces, upper and lower, will separate and the handle willl slide forward off the hose itself.
Before doing so remove the filter of the vac and plug the hose into the blower below the filter. Try to blow out an obstruction. It is always easier to back out than force through as the handle is narrower than the those itself.

Remove hose from handle on old electrolux canister


BE careful here. Do not fish a coat hanger in the handle.
The original hose has a set of detachable handle componnets.There are two metal screws in the underside of the hand grip.Do Not pry. Once removed go to the suction dial area underside of the grip. Observe the plastic fingers near the dial. These must be reset in their " track " when reassembling the handle.
Gently insert a small flat screwdriver between the rubber wiring contacts and the plastic tongue wraps around the socket. this tongue which extends from the hose handle adjacent to the metal tube. Work you way back to the hose area carefully separating the "hand grip cover" from the hose handle itself.
Once apart remove the obstruction. Carefully clean the two brass rings looking for any pitting. If pitted, gently polish by rotating fine wet/dry sandpaper around the rings, then lube with vaseline.
The matching contact fingers on the handgrip cover should be cleaned as well and gently tensioned to put a bit more presusre on the contact rings.
Slide the handle ONLY onto the hose. Once in place the contact rings will be visible. Now you can work the handgrip cover back into place starting with the two tabs at the hose end below the contact rings. To seat the small fingers at the control valve gently click into place before reinstalling upper handle screws.

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!

Brush motor doesnt work


The cord at the bottom of the power head neck may be bad. But so could the plug connections in the hose handle, and the cord on the wand. Check both ends of the wand and make sure that the plug ends aren't burnt, if they are replace them and maybe the plug inside the hose handle.
