Electrolux oxygen 3 fuse

I read your previous answer posts on an electrolux oxygen 3 vacuum that shut off suddenly. My particular vacuums has a blown fuse. I'd like to replace the fuse rather than hunt down a new SUMO board.

Could you tell me what replacement fuse i should look for and any suggestions on where to buy one.

Thanks

The fuse on my ELECTROLUX Oxygen3's sumo board did have clear markings: F5AL250V - this is a 5A/250V 20mm fuse made by BEL FUSE, however, any other such fuse should work. The fuse on my board was blown (luckily, what caused it seems to be a glitch as replacing the fuse was all that I had to do). I got 5A/250V 20mm fuse from RadioShack and, expecting that this could happen again, I also installed a simple (5A/250V-rated) automotive fuse holder (also from RadioShack) (the only fuse holder that was available at a local store) and it works wonderfully now. Should the fuse blow on me again, I should be able to replace it in less than 3 minutes.

Unfortunately the fuses are soldered to the board and cannot safely be individually replaced. I actually just pulled a sumo board out to look and see if there was any way to replace it, and there are no useful identification markings on the fuse, so I can't even tell you the amperage it requires. The good news is that many Eureka repair stations are keeping a sumo board in stock just for this reason. I am.

Sorry I didn't have better info,

Electrolux L E Canister stopped working


It sounds like it may be a bad control valve assembly, which is found inside the machine. This part is controlled by the dial on the top of the vacuum and does wear out eventually.
If you've got a clean bag in the vacuum, this is the most likely cause. There may be other things that could cause the problem.
This is a repair that needs to be done at repair shop, I recommend one that has personnel trained in repairing the older style Electrolux vacuums like yours.

No power when its turned on


There was a (common cause) power arc during the swap (while running the vacuum).
The fuse located under the grey clipped-on plate of the canister is blown. The fuse is soldered-on the board and would need to be changed (board or fuse). Not "user friendly" zone. Warranty? Smart if they designed a breaker button instead of a fuse here...

It's on the right hand side and is soldered directly to the board, it looks like a little glass vial about 2/3 of an inch long and about 1/4 inch in diameter. If there's not a tiny metal filament running the length of the fuse, it's gone bad.

I hope that helps, I'm describing it from memory since I don't have one in front of me.

Best of luck,
