Question about Electrolux Vacuums

Open Question

Electrolux z5635 will not turn on - red and orange (filter) blinks.

Stopped working suddenly. All filters and bags are fine. Checked pressure pipes to the circuit board - all fine. These lights would normally indicate an overheating but non occurred. The lights would not go away and the motor would not turn on. Is the circuit board dead or the motor is dead? Any ideas appreciated....

SOURCE: 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.

HI
sounds like the hose is blocked. Drop a coin throgh it to check

SOURCE: Sebo x1.1 fitted with new bag and filter but red

Without doubt this indicates that there's a blockage somewhere. The two easiest places to look are: 1. on the underside of the machine there's an inspection flap - check in there; 2. remove the flexible hose completely from the machine at both ends - check in the hose itself, and where it enters the machine near the handle .  The only other place to look is where the base connects to the bag compartment - to check there, you need to separate those two parts by pressing the button at bottom front of bag compartment and pulling the base away (this can be difficult - four hands would be useful - but once you're pressing that button, nothing else other than friction is holding the parts together). Once the parts are separated, check every orifice you can see (the parts just push back together again).
I think that covers it.  Good luck, and please remember to rate this response.

SOURCE: Electrolux 2100 vac dies when you attach hose even with new bag.

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.

My vacuum is an Electrolux model el 20 the power head stopped working and has a flashing red light on it now


No Owner's manual? Try manualslib.com
But wild guess is the filter bag or possibly the secondary filter is
full. Sometimes. the effect of the full bag will pop open the latch for the filter bag and as a result, will automatically stop. Otherwise, it may be that the motor has overheated as a result of the full filters and stopped due to the overheating.

Does the electrolux discovery 11 have a filter?


The Discovery II was manufactured in 1986 originally and remade a few years later. The earlier ones did not have any extra filters but can be added like the later ones. There\'s a pre-motor filter that can be added and an after bag filter kit available as well. These help to keep the "fine" dust to a minimum and are helpful to any allergy sufferers. Hope that helped!

My electrolux ambassador stopped working suddenly


This may be a bit late, but if you're using an afterfilter on your vacuum, check it. These should be changed every sixth bag or so. If not, it will get extremely dirty and block the airflow, causing the motor to overheat and shut off.
There could be other problems, but this is the easiest thing to check, and the quickest fix. You don't really need the afterfilter to continue using the vacuum. It's there to prevent fine dust particles that have gotten through the bag from returning to the home. With the new bags out now, it's kind of obsolete, but HEPA afterfilters are made for newer Aerus Electrolux vacuums for folks concerned with fine pollens and dust, and those with allergies.
If you've ever had a bag break, then dirt has also gotten into the motor. This will cause problems, and the motor should be cleaned as soon as possible. The wiring can be checked while this is done, as a loose wire can also cause this problem.

Electrolux vacuum turning off


hi take off canister cover remove bag now if you look inside canister you will/should see a gauze type filter at the opposite end of canister from where bag locks in ?? remove this gauze filter and for now just shake tap on floor to remve dust/debri etc /from it this gauze is the filter that when vac is working andfilling the dust bag ? the pressure of air only that blows bag up but allows only air to pass thro the microscopic holes in bag ? then has to expel via the gauze filter to exterior ? and any dust etc that is clever enough to seep through the bag ??? will not pass further due to gauze ? and so prevents this blowing back into room ok so far ?? if this gauze is blocked due to whatever ?? then pressure build up in canister will result in cover lifting? this is provided that the fault is not the actual cover securing latch is ok and not damaged ? hope this explains and helps ? best wishes from uk !

Dirt Devil Purpose for Pets suddenly stopped vacuuming, totally cutting off. Checked plug and outlet for problems which were negative.


I had this same problem. All of a sudden it shuts off while vacuuming and then i'd have to wait a while before it would turn back on. Finally it stopped working period. Before going out to buy a new vacuum, I decided to take the thing apart and clean it up really good. That included running a clothes hanger through the tubes to get all the stuck hair out, removing the roller and getting all the hair untangled from it, and rinsing out the air filters (both the sponge and the plastic piece with the paper like filter) with hot water. Then you let the filters dry for a day or two. The plastic/paper filter takes longer to dry so I used a hair dryer. The vacuum itself is not hard to take apart. I think there are only 11 total screws you need to take out. After the filters dried I put them back in the newly cleaned vacuum and it worked like new. I think the main problem was the condition of the filters. They can get pretty filthy over time, which will limit the air flow to the motor. With less air the motor is more likely to overheat and shut off. So keep your filters clean and you shouldn't have any proplems.

RENAISSANCE HOSE/VAC


THE RENAISSANCE IS KNOWN FOR HAVING PROBLEMS WITH THE CIRCUIT BOARD IN THE HANDLE.YOU'LL NOTICE THAT MODELS THAT CAME AFTER THAT HAD SLIDING SWITCHES. UNFORTUNATELY THE NEW HOSE DESIGN WON'T WORK ON YOUR MACHINE BECAUSE THE CIRCUIT BOARD INSIDE THE MACHINE WAS CHANGED TOO.AERUS MAY OR MAY NOT STILL MAKE THE PARTS YOU NEED. OTHER WISE LOOK ON E-BAY FOR A NEW HOSE.
ELECTROLUX FOOLISHLY REPLACED IT'S FLAGSHIP STEEL MACHINE WITH THIS DESIGN...A FEW YEARS LATER ALL THEY HAD WORTH SELLING WAS THEIR NAME, HENCE THE NEW NAME AERUS.

Won't start.


There is a reset button at the back of the powerhead. The user manual can be downloaded from the electrolux website, although I didn't find it very useful. There was some info on how to change the powerhead drive belt.
