If you're just purchased it I suggest you need to check where your local Warranty Agent is and take it there for a service. Since this model has an electronic switch (do the lights flash on and the middle one stays green when powered on at the power point?) you may need to get that checked out.

BTW there is a motor protect fuse that shuts the motor off if it overheats. Once the motor cools down it should have been fine. Check for blockages in the hose as sometimes things get stuck in the handle.

My Nilfisk GU305 cuts out after a few minutes use


You are probably right. There is not enough air flow around the motor. It uses the air from the vacuum as the cooling air.
There is a secondary filter after the first filter bag. You may think the bag is not full and don't think you need to change. Sometimes the material you vacuum is so fine that it will clog the filter bag. I've done it vacuuming sheetrock sanding dust. Then just below the main filter is the secondary filter. Depending on the age and amount of use, there could be other problems. Motor brushes about to fail. A wire connection that separates as temperatures rise. Then reconnects when "cool". Plug end may be a problem. Its connection to the switch. The switch it'self could be.

Change front wheel on x300


The front wheel on a Nilfisk Extreme 300 is changed by removing the 3 screws inside the bag chamber. From memory they are a torx screw driver size 15 or 20. Basically remove the bag and take out the 3 screws in the middle of the chamber - the wheel will fall off once you lift the machine up. If you need to buy a replacement wheel you can find one here.

Nilfisk Extreme 300 does not always respond to the remote trigger on the handle


The Nilfisk X300 has a battery in the handle piece it would be worth simply replacing the battery. If that does not solve it you may need a new Nilfisk X300 Handle. It is possible that it is the receiver i teh machine but to be honest these are a pretty hard machine to work on and the circuit boards are all interconnected, this is a repair for an experienced player.

Hi my nilfisk alto e140.1 has just cut out i have changed the fuse its not that could someone please help because i have borrowed it off a friend :( helen....


Hi Helen,

I checked the owners manual. Here are some things you can check:

The thermal sensor has shut it down. The manual says to let it cool down for 5 plus minutes, then try it again. I imagine you've tried that already, so ....

The nozzle could be partially blocked. The nozzle MUST be detached in order to clean it. Use something as long as the nozzle, like a stiff wire or needle like object, to clear it. Then flush it backwards with water.

Since the fuse blew, try the machine without the extensions hose or use a little higher rated fuse or both.

The pump/spray gun is leaking.

If none of these works, please reply back.

I hope this does work. If it does, I'd appreciate your vote. Thanks,
Handie Andie

Greetings jettin_us,

Normally you can contact the store you purchased the unit at, and if you paid with anything other than cash, they may be able to retrieve your receipt for you.

Once you get the receipt, if you still fall inside your 1year factory warranty, I would suggest contacting Dirt Devil for further assistance. Their contact number is 800-321-1134.

I hope this helps!
