Tip & How-To about Vacuums
Aerus Electrolux Warranty
Aerus carries a great warranty on their machines, up to 20 years limited on top of the line models. However, there are some things that WILL void the warranty. The following are probably the most common.
Use of generic/made-to-fit bags. There’s a reason genuine bags are strongly advised for use with the Aerus and previous Electrolux vacuums, and it’s not just the strength of the bag. Fine dust particles will get through generic bags and result in a damaged motor.
Vacuuming wet carpet and liquids. Although you may try to make sure you don’t use your vacuum on liquids, children, other family members, and/or house cleaners won’t necessarily be as careful/caring. If kids notice the vacuum doesn’t work anymore, they may try to hide the evidence, thus you may not know about the problem.
Keep in mind that if you have your carpet steam cleaned, it can take a week or more to thoroughly dry. Vacuuming during this time will result in water/mud getting into the motor, ruining it almost immediately. A wet bag will also usually break open, sending contents through the motor. The motor will have to be replaced, but it won’t be covered by a warranty.
Dismantling of vacuum by unauthorized persons. If you’re having a problem with your vacuum, and you think it’s an easy, quick fix, don’t. You may get it fixed, but this will void the warranty for future problems. It’s simply not worth it.
Commercial use. The Aerus commercial upright is made for tougher work, but only carries a one year limited warranty. Even though your machine may have a longer, better warranty when used properly, using it as part of a cleaning or similar business voids the warranty. Solution; Don’t do it.
Aerus Electrolux does NOT warranty machines sold over the internet, such as on E-bay. Only those purchased through an authorized franchise or representative carry Aerus' warranty.
Be aware of your machines’ capabilities and warranties. An Aerus Electrolux owner has made a wise investment in a top-of-the-line home cleaning system and generally desires to maintain the system in prime working condition, with full benefits.
