Electrolux Z8240 Cyclonic Bagless Vacuum Cleaner

Hi Provac,

Thanks for the suggestions. The Z8240 has two lights on the main body.
Normally when it works as it should, the blue light comes on and it acts as power on indicator. It has Power on controls on the handle.

The problem with mine is that as it was working, it started to choke, and I turned it off as fast as I could - there was some electrical smell as well.

I cleaned the filters on it, and the motor attempted to start again and it again started to choke and shut down - felt like it was protecting itself from overheating.

I tried to find some circuit description of it - but no luck - I think it has 3 circuit boards in it - or so I was told by the vac tech that repaired it last time.

Any suggestions would be welcome

Be sure to check the hose , wands and power brush for obstructions as well.
If there's a burning hair electrical odor then it might be toast.
i despise bagless vac's as they always wind up being more maintenance and expence then bagged vac's.

Good Luck and let me know what you find out.

Repairing contacts in Electrolux Z8240 handle


Hi There, Alec From VacuumSpot here. I work as a vacuum technician and unfortunately I am the bearer of bad news the handle is not really repairable. Even in warranty Electrolux allowed us to simply swap the hose over in favour of any repair. If you need to buy a new Z8240 hose the part number is 1131404541.

The canister will not release from the vacuum


Hi there,

I'm sorry to hear you're having difficulties with your DC07. The cyclone assembly should lift away easily from the main body of the cleaner when you press the release button. If it won't do this, it's probably best if you give us a call so we can help - you can reach us on 0800 2980298 (UK), or 1866MYDYSON (US). We'll look forward to hearing from you.

Kind regards,

Jack

This procedure should solve the problem. Before you start it, please make sure the machine is unplugged.

First, remove the airway inspection. It’s located at the side of your cleaner.

Next, hold the main body of the cleaner halfway between the floor and upright position. Then, place two fingers in the square hole left by the airway inspection (you should be able to see a round hole at the base) then pull that plastic piece sharply upwards. You should hear a click as you do so.

Your machine should now stand upright and you may also notice an improvement in the suction, too.

If this procedure hasn’t worked, please call our experts on 0800 298 0298 (UK) or 1866MYDYSON (US).


Many thanks
