Electrolux Guardian Bagged Canister Vacuum\015 My Renaissance vacuum recently started to do several strange things. First the power brush began randomly turning on and off while vacuuming, almost like there was a loose connection. At the same time I also could feel warmth through the plastic tube at the point where the hose handle connects with the first rigid tube that goes to the power nozzle. When I separated the handle and tube the brass colored pin was so hot it seriously burned my finger. I took the entire nozzle apart and didn’t notice anything wrong, everything is clean and in good shape, motor and brush spinning fine, the brush assembly and belt were replaced about a year ago. I put everything back together but the power nozzle continues to turn on and off at random...Now, in addition to the power nozzle problem, the entire vacuum will randomly shut off by itself. After turning it back on it will sometimes stay on for several minutes before shutting off again, or it might immediately turn itself off. Sometimes after it turns off, the red light next to the off button will blink (not the bag change light)...The hose is not obstructed. Any help would be appreciated...Thanks.\015
How to Identify and Fix Common Vacuum Problems ?
Our sources include academic articles, blog posts, and personal essays from experienced Vacuum Technicians :
Let the product cool down for a minimum of 2 hours on the charging stand before starting it again (stick vacuum cleaners only) Charge the vacuum cleaner (stick vacuum cleaners only) Check that the cable is connected to the mains. Check that the plug and cable are not damaged.
The filter assembly is not washable and should be placed every six months. As with the canisters and uprights, an excessively dirty filter leads to motor noise, loss of suction, and overheating.
Thoroughly dry your laundry, then fold or roll each piece of clothing into the bag. Be wary of how you fold your clothes. Most prefer to roll their clothes when packing them in a vacuum storage bag because of fewer creases when taken out.

the most relevant questions and answers related to your specific issue
.As far as your power nozzle goes, the head eminating from the swivel body is in most cases due to an older design of the power nozzle. I would suggest investing in a new elbow assembly that includes a new swivel body as well as newer style of wiring that is proved to reduce arcing and heat production within the power nozzle.
.In some cases, fixing the power nozzle will fix the problems you are experienceing with the main motor as the arcing happening in the power nozzle can in fact turn off your machine. So investing in a new elbow assembly for your power nozzle could in fact solve the problem in its entirety.

.DID ANY OF YOU HIT THE RESET BUTTON ON TOP OF THE POWER HEAD?!

. Is the power nozzle motor running but the brush just isn’t turning? If so you may have a broken belt. Not a likely solution since the belt is a lifetime belt, but still remotely possible.
