Having problems with your Vacuums ?

The power nozzle on my c141b model aerus electrolux canister vaccum no longer turns on. It was working when a large stringy object was sucked in. When hitting the red reset button, nothing happens. Is it likely that it is the fuse that needs to be replaced? All wires appear intact (I replaced the elbow assembly a few months ago.), and the sweeper moves freely.


Answers :

It's not a fuse.
\015\012Turn the power nozzle on it's top. Try to rotate the brush. If it won't spin, there's till something holding it. Remove all strings, threads, and whatnot from the roller. Try to rotate it again. If it still won't spin, it needs to be taken to an authorized Aerus Electrolux store for diagnosis and/or repair.
\015\012Try connecting the hose directly to the power nozzle to see if runs. If it does there's most likely a broken or disconnected wire/cord somewhere in the wands, or the power nozzle. If it doesn't, the problem is with the power nozzle. It could be the motor, although that's unlikely. Other possibilities are broken or disconnected wires or a bad switch. Again, it needs to be taken to the shop to be diagnosed.
\015\012Disconnect cord to the power nozzle and examine the prongs on the cord and the terminals in the power nozzle. If there's any discoloring or cracks, they need replaced. Reinsert plug and make sure it fits tightly.
\015\012Disconnect cord from wand plug and check for the same things.

My Vacuum just stop working. I was cleaning my car carpets when it just went off. I tough it got disconnected from the outlet (power supply). The vacuum was connected and it is like when a fuse go bad, just like that it won't turn on anymore. Is there a switch that needs to be reset or a fuse to be replace? How do you do it?? Thanks

Motor is sparking and smells like burning rubber. When it first happened I thought the vacuum had something jamming the beater bar. That was the smell it had, like when the belt gets burned. But when we turned it over, it wasn't jamming. Took off the base plate and turned it on. The motor area is sparking and it makes a weird noise (I assume that is because the motor fails and restarts). I looked for loose wires, can't find any. I believe I need some sort of part replaced, maybe even a n

Have a Centralux Aerus about 5 years old. Don't see a model number. There is suction but beater brush quit working. Was using for a few minutes, shut it off for a few minutes, turned it back on and suction only. Tried the reset button also. Tried the sidekick attachment and it works fine. There was no smell like something was hot. Belt is fine. Are there any fuses or anything else to try? This vacuum cleaner has not really been used that much, it is hard to believe the motor would need replaced

Dirt devil vacuum cleaner--trouble vacuuming dirt and pet hair on carpeting --is the problem with the spinning brush which contacts the floor,  not contacting the carpeting??  I thought (when I bought this vacuum) that the aforementioned brush was adjustable to various heights of carpeting.  Sometimes, it seems like nothing is being vacuumed up --unless I have just put a new bag on the vacuum...

I have an older Oreck XL vacuum that sounds like it is running twice as fast as it should. I disassembled the entire vacuum, including disconnecting the motor wires, to clean out the hair, string, and other things. When I put everything back and connected all the wires, everything appears to work, including the light. The only problem is, it sounds extremely loud like the motor is running too fast.

Does the hoover runabout u427-930 have a filter? I replaced the belt and next to the light bulb was a square gray mat that looked like a filter covering a screen full of holes that looked like the motor was behind. I think it was a mat of cat hair so I took it off and threw it away; I just want to make sure that it wasn't a filter that I need to replace.


From doing a search on the internet and hoovers website it looks as if this unit does not have a filter. Such as a hepa that needs to be replaced or that is washable. So i think you are safe and dont need to worry about it. ... Hoover Elite U5061-900 Bagged Upright Vacuum

The 10 amp thermal fuse on my Panasonic MC-E468 vacuum cleaner has blown. Unfortunately the red ink has worn off exactly where the temperature rating is printed so even with a magnifying glass cannot make out the exact replacement fuse to buy. Can anyone shed any light. I know you can buy the complete thermal fuse and wiring from currys partmaster but with delivery would cost about 20 pounds as opposed to 69 pence for the fuse itself. Thanks Mark Roberts


It appears the fuse is not available separately. Standard retail price for the complete unit is £9.00 including VAT. We can supply at that price plus postage and packing at cost, which would probably be no more than £2.50.  If this i ... Vacuums
