Question about Electrolux EL7020A Oxygen 3 Ultra Canister Vacuum Cleaner Bagged Vacuum
It comes on and then shuts off in a few seconds. The Bag and filter comes on when it first starts up and then all goes off. Cannot restart. I have taken the silver cover off as you have explained how too. Looked around at the circuit board, the fuse is go of course. What's next. No blockage in the suction openings, hose, etc. I noticed there are 3 circuit board on this model, and two of the verticle installed boards have small white parts small rubber hoses attached. Don't have a clue what they are for. Also under the large main circuit board there is small rubber hose that does not attach to anything. It's just laying there. However it seems to be attached somewhere else. I can't see where. Don't know what the problem with my machine is. You have any idea what is causing it not to stay running.
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.
