Question about Electrolux EL7020A Oxygen 3 Ultra Canister Vacuum Cleaner Bagged Vacuum

1 Answer

Model EL7020 will not stay running!

The machine has a new bag, the filters new, machine is only 1 year old. The machine starts but shuts off just after a few seconds. The three blue lights on top of the machine flash from MIN to AUTO to MAX and cycle. The filter light and bag light come on right after it starts and maybe 3 seconds running it shuts off. Simple fix I hope. Just found out today this ain't no Electrolux.. Paid $499 at Lowe's. We had an Electrolux for 30 years and gave it to the youngest boy. 5 Years ago and it runs like new. Never had but one problem, it needed carbon brushes for the motor. I hate this thing.

Electrolux el 7020 Canister Vacuum shuts of continuously do i need to Change the Carbon Brushes


How old? If fairly new you should not need brushes, bad brushes would probably not allow the vacuum to run at all. Last time you changed filter? Sounds like the cover to the filter is not closing well enough. There's also possibility you have a clog in the wand or hose.

Bag needed changing there was no burn ing smell or strange noises before i changed bag after bag was changed it wouldnt start. the cord is new no fraying and vac is about 5 years old. didn


I'm not real experienced with this model vac, but I do know that many of the newer vac's are being manufactured with a small button or lever, whatever the particular brand of vac decides would best fit on their unit, that would be located somewhere around the edge of the bag door opening and would need to be depressed by having a bag inside in order for the machine to run. I would check for something of this nature to be sure that during the bag change that you didn't just miss putting it in quite right to depress the go button. Other than that, it's entirely possible that the switch died. If that's the case you'll need to bring it in to a vac repair shop for help.

Electrolux EL7020 SHUTS OFF Constantly!


That problem have 2 causes..#1 is loose electrical connection inside or on the power cord..#2 is worn out carbon brush inside of vacuum motor..

Carbon brush is the one of the most serviceable parts of a vacuum cleaner because our vacuum cleaner motor is very hard working parts so the brush inside will possible worn or not connected to the armature of rotor...

Bag was full, changed it, the unit now turns off


Try dialing the control valve to the mid way position. If the unit still shuts down with the bag full light on you have a damaged control valve under the dial on the top of the vac.
This valve failure is common in this model and can only be repaired by someone with original AERUS Electrolux repair parts, generally at an AERUS repair shop.

My EL7020 so call Electrolux!


Check the electrical connections between the hose and the body of the machine, and also the wand connections all the way to the power head. Sometimes a faulty connection can send a false "off" signal back to the main body of the machine, and turn it off; but usually it will restart if that's the case. It sounds like you have a clog somewhere which is tripping your motor's thermal cutout, but you did say there are no clogs... so if you have full suction all the way down to the powerhead that's not the issue. You could have a faulty thermal switch, but I think the likely cause is, as usual; the sumo board.

Good luck. Sorry I didn't have a more concise answer for you.

Electrolux Epic 6500SR Full Bag sensor working, Does not Reset properly


The problem was a sticking switch that was not being reset. The vacuum on/off switch mechanism is comprised of two switches. One is the main switch that turns the vacuum on and off. The second is a shut off switch that gets tripped when the full bag sensor is engaged. This second switch is supposed to get reset when you push the on/off switch on the outside of the machine. The full bag shutoff switch was stiff and it, therefore, was taking a couple of presses of the on/off switch to move the shutoff switch back into the running position.

It just shuts off!


Some of these have the Hepa filter on the back, if so there will be a door to access it. If there is one, some had a reset button that you push, mainly for when you change the fifter, if it has one, push that reset, if it needs to be re-set, it will shut off after a seconds. Remove the Hepa filter and look see if there is a reset button. https://portal.bsh-partner.com/portal(bD1kZSZjPTAwOQ==)/PORTALFRAME.HTM, this will give you a link for a user manual. If you disconnect the hose, will it shut off or stay on. If it stays on then there is a clog either in the hose, wands, or the inlet down by the brush roll. If it goes off, and there is no reset by the Hepa filter, then there could be a problem with the motor or motor protector.
