Having problems with your Vacuums ?
Blue moon works intermittently
\015 Meile blue moon canister, 5yrs old. The power hose contacts worn, intermittent contact lost, so power head goes on/off while vacuuming. Is there a way to fix without repalcing $$$ parts? my theory is build up the trailer -like metal plug contacts by soldering/welding some how, altho could be challenging.\015
Take the hose handle apart and look at the bottom side of the switch circuit board. Sometimes a contact or 2 break loose from the solder and will work intermittenly. Resolder the contacts if this is the case, put back together and try again.

My electrolux Epic 6500 power nozzle Model N109J will not work. It had an intermittent short which I thought I fixed (some of the insulation on the wires were pinched). I fixed the wires and it worked intermittently for an hour then shut down completely. Could the reset switch have a short? When I press the switch nothing happens.
The switch is definitely a possibility, but other problems can also cause this.\015\012Bad switch, needs replaced.\015\012Broken wiring in power nozzle, wands, hose, or canister.\015\012Bad PN motor.\015\012\015\012I str ... Electrolux Epic 6500 Vacuum
