Question about Electrolux Guardian Bagged Canister Vacuum

1 Answer

Electrolux Guardian canister electrical problem

At first the red light lit up and vacuum would not switch on. Trying to figure out where the short was I tried using a test light where the plug of the hose plugs in and I think I burn't out something else because now the red light doesn't come on. Any ideas on what to test. I have a digital multi meter but am not shure where to start.

Thank you for your time.

I believe there is a fused lead inside of the canister. Depending on where you connected your test light, you may have blown this fuse. I don't think you will have much luck finding aftermarket parts for this unit, so you may want to find an Aerus dealer. You can go to Aerusonline.com and use the dealer locater to find the closest store. Good Luck!

The red light on my electrolux vacuum comes on and cuts power.


If the bag full light keeps coming on, you can first try adjusting the dial on top of the vacuum cleaner. If that does not work, then you need to change the control valve. This is an internal component of the canister and is directly below the dial. You will need to follow the instructions on a previous post to open the Electrolux plastic canister vacuum, and remove the bage cage. Once you remove the bage cage you can change the control valve, and this will solve your problem with the bag full indicator.

Electrolux Canister - Stops working after 1-2 minutes.


Electrolux Canister - Stops working after 1-2...
Our vac works for a short time, then shuts off and makes clicking noise as if trying to restart again. Works after cooling for a while but for another very short time. Your suggestion on fix would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks


I would advise you to ALWAYS to FIRST UNPLUG YOUR VACUUM before beginning any service procedure
I would advise that it could be a thermal switch or a regular switch that the thermal switch is over heating and needs replacement – there are small hoses in the door section that could have been pinched or kinked and it stopping the air flow from the vacuum – also check for a clogged or plugged vacuum hose, a full vacuum bag or a dirty vacuum filter. Check the thermal switch or reg switch or the hoses in the door. Or feel free to contact your local vacuum dealer in your area or in the yellow pages, or call the factory @ the phone number listed below:
