Question about Electrolux Centralux Vacuum

1 Answer

Non-working Electrolux Centralux vacuum system

I have an 8 year old system which includes baseboard vacuum (?). I plugged it in this morning and nothing. The handheld vacuum doesn't work and neither do the baseboard units. There is power to the plug that it is plugged in to. I have noticed that one of the wall units is a bit loose and wonder if it could be a loose wire causing it to not work. Any ideas? Thanks so much for your help!

Is there a small LED light illuminated where the low voltage wires connect to the main unit? There may be a small rubber boot covering the connection and the light. Just slide it back, and there should be a green LED light if the unit has power. If the LED is not on, there is no power to the unit (tripped breaker, plug came loose from electrical outlet, etc.) If LED is illuminated, short across the pins where the low voltage wires connect to the main unit. (These will be small 18-22 gauge wires, not the larger electrical cable!) You can do this with a coin. (Don't worry, it's just 24 volts and you won't even feel it) The unit should come on. If it doesn't, and you have light from the LED, then it's probably the relay on the board inside the unit, or the motor. Good Luck!

My main power breaker for the house, shuts off after I have used the Electrolux Centralux vac for a short period of time - why does this happen?


This is usually an indication that the motor is going bad. Motors in central vacuum systems are very easy to replace. Most motors can be purchased online.

What's the "Service" LED for


Page 6 of the manual states,
"The Service LED is a red light

that comes on when service

is required. Please call an

Aerus location to perform a

service check on the CentraLux

(including the hose, wand and
power nozzle system)."

If a rep comes to your home, there's no charge.
If you've misplaced the manual, you can download one at the following site.

Need a new electrolux power nozzle model N106m


If you're looking for a new head for your vacuum. Then you're going to have to replace it with the same type of nozzle.

However, wall inlets are standard so you can purchase any kind of attachment kit and it'll fit your inlets and work with your system. Their are many online retailers that offer a wide range of kits that will fit your system.

Clogged Hose


Hi, this sounds like you have something stuck quite firmly in the hose!! If you use a good sturdy stick then you should be able to move the object without any damage to the hose. Check along the outside of the hose first just incase something has pushed its way out of the hose wall.
Get back to me.........

If the light came on when you plugged it in, then you have power to the unit. You can take a coin and short across the two pins where the small, low voltage wires connect to the unit. Just remove the two wires, they should just pull off, and touch the two pins together with the coin. The unit should come on. If it doesn't, and the light is on, you may have a bad motor or a bad relay on the board inside the unit. Another thing to check is the filter. It has to be installed properly or the unit will not run. The top of the filter depresses a switch so that the unit cannot be operated without a filter in place. Good Luck!

I have an Electrolux Centralux. When I plug the hose in at one of the wall outlets the motor will not start. If I go to the motor and slap the unit it will start.....then...it will not stop unless I unplug the power cord to the motor.
If I plug the power cord back in, the unit will not restart until I slap the motor unit again. The unit has only been used 20 - 30 times.
Any suggestions? Thanks, Bruce


Hello,
I would advise you to ALWAYS to FIRST UNPLUG YOUR VACUUM before beginning any service procedure. You may have a bad inlet or household outlet; try all the inlets in the house too. But it sounds to me that your carbon brushes are dirty and need cleaning or replacing would be my 1st suggestion. Take a good wire brushes or pipe cleaner to clean the inside of the carbon brushes if they stick then replace them. So if the unit has only been used 20 to 30 times I would suggest some one to come and look @ it who did the install because it is still under a factory warranty and if you start messing with things you will void the factory warranty on the motor. And then if it is the motor for some reason then the factory or vendor will eat the cost of the repair. So if you need further assistance, please feel free to contact your local vacuum cleaner dealer in your area or in the yellow pages, or contact the factory phone number or website to further assist you with your questions.
