Does anyone have details or a power nozzle list of what is used with what.

I hesitate to call myself an expert on this stuff, but I own at least one copy each of the PN1, PN2, PN4, PN4A and PN5, so I'll share what I know about those. If I am wrong about any of this, feel free to correct me and I will take no offense:

The PN1 shipped with the model G and early 1205's. It came in two color schemes--white with a teal bumper and teal with a white bumper. It was around from sometime in the 1960s until about 1970.

The PN2 was introduced around 1970 or '71 and shipped with later 1205's, including the Golden Jubilee variant, and the Super J. All PN2's were polished aluminum. Units for the 1205 typically had a teal elbow, while those for the Super J had an off white elbow.

The PN4, introduced in the mid-'70s, shipped with later Super J's and early Olympias. All PN4's had polished aluminum upper shells with a motor hump that extended the full width of the shell.

The PN4A came out in the late '70s and was used into the early '80s with later Olympia and early Silverado models. They differed from the PN4 in that the motor hump only extended about 2/3 of the way across the body instead of the full width. They were also painted to match the model they accompanied--chocolate brown with off-white plastics for the Olympia and graphite gray with light gray plastics for the Silverado. Underneath the shell, the PN4 and PN4A are identical and the shells are interchangeable between the two models.

The PN5, introduced in the mid-'80s, was the first of the L-shaped "Omniflow" nozzles, and shipped with the later Silverados and the first the Diamond J's. The plastic upper shells on some PN5's were dark gray and on others the were putty gray. I believe the darker ones shipped with the Silverado and the lighter ones shipped with the Diamond J. The omniflow design was also incorporated into the Discovery II upright and its various successors.

The PN6, introduced in the mid-to-late '80s, was essentially the same nozzle as the PN5 and came in the same two color schemes. The only difference between the two is the PN6 included an on/off switch on the top of the nozzle. I'm not sure at what point these were introduced. They may have been introduced during the Diamond J's model run. Later Omniflow nozzles incorporated a headlight into the design.

I'm not sure exactly when they were introduced, Olympia or Silverado era maybe, but the smaller SideKick power nozzles, designed for handheld use, came in several color schemes, some with a power switch and some without. They are all compatible with any powered Electrolux hose, going all the way back to the teal woven ones that shipped with the Model G and 1205. The later SideKick II units are not compatible with these earlier machines from the '60s, '70s and '80s because their power pins are set wider apart.

The PN-1 first launched in 1959 with the model Automatic F. It was two tone grey.
In 1960, it changed to turquoise and off white to match the Model G.
In 1967, it changed to brown and cream to match the Bronze Model G
In 1968, it changed to blue/white to match the 1205
In 1969, the plastic wand became the telescopic electric wand
In 1970, they introduced the steel wand and sheath.
There was also a commercial PN-1 to match the Commercial Automatic

Following are lists of Aerus LLC (formerly Electrolux Corporation & Electrolux Canada) power nozzles. The EC & Aerus lists were composed from my research. It isn’t completely accurate, but it is fairly so and a work in progress. Much of the information has been confirmed with user manuals, online information, conversations with Aerus representatives, and personal observations; although some is speculative such as some years and the less common nozzles for the CVS, commercial, & special models (for sales competitions). Also, at times a new tank was initially paired with an older nozzle for a short period which I likely did not record in the list. The Canadian data came from Doug Smith and aeoliandave’s Vacuumland posts. The two North American Electrolux affiliates shared R & D especially from 1956, when structural changes occurred after Axel Wenner-Gren sold his remaining shares in AB Electrolux, and even more after EC purchased a majority share of Electrolux (Canada) Ltd. in 1961; so there’s a lot of duplication or similarities; but colors were usually different and the labeling and model identifications unique to each.
.
Some features such as amps, spring-loaded or stationary rear wheels, switches or buttons, et cetera, have been omitted. In addition, over the years customers had brush roll options such as 3-row, stiff, gentle, & beater bars, which have not been included.

I used the exact model format Electrolux USA used on the base plate (which sometimes differed from printing); including the hyphen and the 'PN' prefix, which were discontinued at different times. It should also be noted that in 1994 Electrolux began using its current alphanumeric model identification, beginning with a letter prefix for the cleaner category (‘N’ for nozzle), a 3-digit model, and a letter suffix indicating a color distinction. To avoid confusion, the company has not used an ‘I’ or an ‘O’ suffix due to their similarities to digits; so keep that in mind if, for instance, in reading a model number from the nozzle that what may appear to be an ‘O’ is actually a ‘Q’ or a ‘G’. Also, the reason some letter suffixes lack continuity within a model line is often due to TriStar or privately-labeled nozzles being assigned the’missing’ designations.

For the last 25 years or so, Aerus LLC has typically changed the model numbers and/or suffix each time a change or upgrade has been made; although in previous years especially the same model number was retained despite variances in color or function. In those cases I've added a Roman numeral in parentheses indicating the chronological iteration.

Corrections or additions are appreciated.

The early 2100 Hi Tech

kloveland's profile picture
From the late eighties had the PN 5. The very first 2100 with no attachment clip for the combo dusting brush.

Thanks, Kenny. I actually have a Hi-Tech 2100 manual which has a photo on the front cover showing a light sand gray PN5. Good eye.

Other corrections I made ...

• PN-1 (iii): 1962-66; Models R, G (aquamarine green), L (ivory), GH (teal green trim)—ivory hood w/teal green bumper; single ivory non-detachable plastic wand; 2 shorter cords—one from nozzle to wand, and one on hose; circuit breaker & clean-out

• PN-1 (iv.a): 1962-65; Model C.A.—ivory hood w/teal green bumper; metal elbow with wand release; 2-section metal wand; shorter cord plugs into hose cord; circuit breaker & clean-out

____________

**• PN-2 (ii) “Rug Saver”: 1974-75; 50th Jubilee 1205 (honey gold)—polished aluminum hood w/ivory bumper & Jubilee decal; 2-section wand w/ivory sheath; jade elbow

• PN-2 (iii) “Rug Saver”: 1975-77; Super J 1401, L (teal blue)—polished aluminum hood w/ivory bumper & Jubilee decal; 2-section wand w/ivory sheath; jade elbow

(so the rest of the iterations numbering would be changed)

____________

I should also mention that if a power nozzle was used for more than one model, the years may or may not match with the manufacture of the tank or canister. For example, the aquamarine green Model CB was produced only from 1965 to 1966; not '62 to '66 like the PN-1 (iii).

Half humps and full humps

The last PN4's only had half a hump for the motor..... not sure what models they were

There was no PN3 for the same reason Microsoft never put out a Windows 9--marketing.

The PN4's with the 'half hump' were designated as PN4A, were shipped with Olympia and Silverado models and were painted to match the machine. The Silverado variant also had gray bumpers and elbows instead of off-white. None were ever released in polished aluminum finish. The only real difference between the PN4 and PN4A is the shape of the top cover. The internals and underside appear to be identical.

I think the PN 3 was a commercial version of a PN 2(same except 3 wire cord).
Among changes to PN 4s were small slots in front bumper to reduce pushing effort on some carpets and a better hold down for elbow connector to reduce cracks at its front corners.

Was/Is there something to identify the 3 row brush roll used initially in the Hospital G? I was told that later in the production and possibly including the tan G version that the nozzle used a 2 row brush roll.

Evidently the 3 row was too much torque on the motor and they burned out. My mother purchased a new turquoise Hospital G and I remember that 3 row brush roll really groomed her wool carpet and oriental rugs. I loved that vacuum.

So, was there any kind of designator in the P/N numbering system?

Thanks.

I have never seen a different designation for any of the PN-1s—neither in the U.S. or Canada—including the iterations used for the commercial C.A. or CB; and no one has ever mentioned it on Vacuumland as far as I can tell. Apparently the lack of widespread customer interest in the GH and canisters made it more cost effective for Electrolux to just retrofit the standard version. It may have been less expensive to do with the later plastic sole plates, which is why they were given their own identifications.

_______


Regarding the 'missing' PN-3, I wonder if the U.S. simply wanted to avoid confusion with the problematic Canadian PN III so chose instead to skip it. One would think that a commercial PN-3 would have been found by a collector, or that someone would have spotted one and posted a photo of it online; so I'm skeptical.

_______

As for the PN-4A, it's motor housing was made shorter—according to what I've heard or read—so that it could clean under the perimeters of lower furniture.

Brushes-Not sure of different model numbering but customers could often choose a different brush for their PN,even possibly a beater bar brush,for their type of carpet.Should have a chart somewhere of different brushes for PNs.
PN 3-Was just a PN 2 with slight changes.May be able to find service information.
PN 4 shorter motor housing-Was a costly change to give customer advantage of easier cleaning under furniture (as above).

Updated List

Thanks to those who helped me update the list. I'm sure there are still errors and omissions, but accuracy and thoroughness are increasing.

Details by Model Numbers:
• PN-1: rectangular hood w/chevron design; red reset button; 1.2A
• PN-2, PN-II, PN-III, PN-IV, PN-V, PN-100, PN-200, PN-280: rectangular hood; red reset button; removable cord; 1.2A
• PN-4: rectangular hood; red reset button; hard-wired cord; full length motor housing; 1.4A
• PN-4A, PN-4B, PN-4C, PN-2000: rectangular hood; red reset button; hard-wired cord; half length motor housing; 1.4A
• PN5, PN5C: approximately 1ľ” diameter spring-loaded rear wheels, red reset button, detachable cord, metal intake crossbars, wide side air channels; detachable cord; 1.8A
•PN6: approximately 1ľ” diameter spring-loaded rear wheels, on/off/reset switch, hard-wired cord, brush strip, metal intake crossbars; long brush; wide side air channels; corner air channels; detachable cord; 1.8A
•PN6A: approximately 1˝ ” diameter spring-loaded rear wheels, on/off/reset switch, hard-wired cord, metal intake crossbars, narrow side air channels, corner air channels; long brush; 1.8A (according to Erick “lux1521”, a former Vacuumland poster, the wheels were made smaller from this model [and on] to minimize the front of the nozzle from popping up if pushed too hard; they would also likely have improved the suction control of bare floor cleaning).
•6B: approximately 1˝ ” diameter spring-loaded rear wheels, on/off/reset switch, hard-wired cord, plastic intake crossbars, corner air channels (no side air channels or brushes);1.8A;
6BC/N116C was the same except for the 3-wire cord

•N106s 1.8A—N109s 1.8A—N137s -A,-B,-F, -G,-J; other N137s—1.2A; headlight, electric elbow, red reset button
• N114s: 1.8A; power rocker switch; reset button; standard elbow; headlight
• N115s: 1.8A—-B,-F,-K, -L, -M; 1.2A—later versions; power rocker switch; reset button; standard elbow
• N142A: headlight, electric elbow; black reset button; HPO brush roll; 2.0A
• N144A & -G; electric elbow; red reset button; 1.8A

* Vacuumland poster Rob “Kirbylux77” stated in one of his posts that to convert the spring-loaded wheel set-up to the fixed wheels these service numbers/parts are needed:

45347: Rug Cleaner Body - pn 7B & 1720s style
45123: Rear Wheel.Shaft Cover
45125: Wheel Shafts (x 2)
The 7B & 1720s style base is equipped with slots next to the wheels, so only the shafts and shaft cover are needed if the original has them.

Belts
Type 04953: PN-1 (U.S & Canada), PN-2, PN-4, PN-4A, PN-4B, PN-4C & adjustable nozzle uprights; & the Canadian PN-1, PN-II, PN-III, PN-IV, PN-V, PN-100, PN-200, PN-280, PN-2000

Type 48359: household & commercial L-shape nozzles except those listed for Type 49431

Type 49431: N115Y, N115Z, N137X, N137Y, N137Z, U129S, U129U, U129X, U147G, U147H


Brush Roll Options

3-row, long & stiff, gentle, & beater bar versions were available from c.1962 to c.1986; and again from c.2001-03 with the N142A’s HPO brush roll.

c.2009 the double helix brush roll, s/n 48497 (62077-1), was introduced (N137U?).

'Lux 2000' was a model name used for two models of cleaners:

The C141B & -E with the electric hose inlet and the C151B with the standard hose inlet; so only the C151B would then be compatible with the Sidekick K119M. Since the C141s were sold via direct marketing rather than direct sales I'm guessing that there was no color-coordinated Sidekick II to match its colors at the time since I've been unable to find one online; although the current K148D or former 1753 in light sand gray would match.

eBay photo comparisons below of 1)Lux 2000 C141B 2)Lux 2000 C151B 3)Ultralux 2000 C151C

(Interestingly, like some earlier models such as the Marquise 1521, Grand Marquise 1521, and Legacy 1521, the Lux 2000 C141B is not labeled anywhere with its model name).

I have a Model F with the power nozzle. Its motor housing is gray, matching the gray color of the motor housing of the Model F, and the handle is off-white.

 

The vacuum cleaner came to me from a daughter whose mother had owned it and had it, if I recall correctly, in a summer home. It was barely used, even still having an original Model F bag inside.

PN1 Wands...

human's profile picture
There are also a couple of different wands for the PN1:

Some of the earliest ones, such as pictured in the post above, have a permanently attached one-piece wand. Others have a telescoping wand (rare outside of Canada, apparently) that pairs up with an equally rare pistol grip hose with an integrated connector like more the more modern Electrolux hoses. More common is a non-telescoping wand with a plastic sheath and pigtail connectors at each end.

Side note on PN4/PN4A cover compatibility: A couple of years ago, I put a polished aluminum cover on a gray PN4A, just because I liked the look, and one little oddity I discovered was the screws for the two were different lengths. The PN4A screws would fit into the PN4 cover, but they were slightly too long to secure it properly. I had to use the PN4 screws instead.

That gray PN-1 looks sharp with the Model F. It must have only been produced for a few months in late 1960 and maybe early 1961, because the summer 1960 Model F ad didn't include it. Glad you have it in your collection.

Thanks for the PN-4/PN-4A trivia. If you can - please post a photo of your polished PN-4A.

PN4A photos

human's profile picture
As requested, here are photos of my two PN4A's One has had the cover replaced with a polished aluminum PN4 cover and the other has its original cover that I repainted about five or six years ago. My original intent was to strip off all the paint and polish it up, but I eventually gave up on that idea and repainted it with Rustoleum Hammertone Paint and Primer in One. It was the easiest, most forgiving, most successful spray painting job I've ever done. The color on the can was listed as black, but as you can see from the photos, it's a nice gunmetal gray. It's a bit darker than the original Silverado gray, but I love the look. The one area of the cover that I did manage to completely strip was the raised nameplate area, so I decided to mask it off to give it a custom look. I rather like the result.

One of the unfortunate things about the painted PN4A's is they show scratches so badly. Neither of the two nozzles pictured were exactly pristine examples when I got them, but they looked much worse with their original paint jobs. The brown Olympia nozzles are even worse for showing scratches and scuffs than the gray ones. Although I don't have an Olympia One, I do still have the scratched-up gray cover I took off of the nozzle that now sports the polished PN4 cover, and I'm tempted, just for kicks, to paint it with the bronze hammertone paint, like what I used on the repainted PN4A cover. If I ever do, I'll post a photo.

Great job on the (gunmetal) gray PN-4A, Edgar! It's actually similar to the black PN5 that was later factory-paired with Silverado Deluxe 1505s. While the polished aluminum covers dulled after awhile and were also prone to scratches from use, they are easier to bring back. It must have been more cost-effective for Electrolux to go with the paint.

A bronze repainting of the PN-4 sounds intriguing. I refer to the Olympia One's paint color as bronze anyway due to its metallic look. It also seems to fit with the medals theme of Super J gold and Silverado Deluxe silver.
