Question about Vacuums

1 Answer

Electrolux precision just got a new electrolux precision. ran it the first time, filled the canister, loved it. Emptied and replaced the canister with no apparent issues but then all of the dirt and pet hair would stay up in the dust cup filter. found a response to a similar issue on this site saying something about the gaskey on a dyson, so I made sure every thing was in place, pushed everything in solid and that did seem to fix it, however, now the cyclone does not go. I have hit the re set button, started everything over and nada...i am sure this is operator error but the booklet is about useless and there is nothing on the web site. a little help?

I hate to be the bearer of bad news, but there is some good news that goes with it. The good news is, You are not the problem. Hope that makes you fell better, because the bad news is, this cleaner is rubish. Electrolux went bankrupt several years ago and the name was bought by Eureka. It is a poorly engineered , chinese made, disposable vacuum, that gives lots of trouble. Miele, Riccar, Sebo, or Lindhaus are much better choices.

SOURCE: Dirt and hairs not going into cylinder

It's not the filter that's the problem.  Air should go first to the cyclones, then to the filter, so the filter catches only those finest dust particles that are not trapped in the cyclones.  The most likely cause of the problem is that the cyclone pack is not properly seated, with the result that at least some of the dirt-bearing air is going directly to the filter rather than passing through the cyclones first.

SOURCE: 8 holes in root cyclone are clogged

There is no real solution other than to call Dyson provided still under warranty.

IMHO, DC17 Animal has a flawed design with the sealed canister (at least as purchased in December 2006 purpotedly has been corrected at this time).

The rubber gasket (where you close the bin at the bottom) is so delicate, that even the routine maintenance of emptying the bin can dislodge it (or even crimp it) so that debris (carpet lint, pet hair, etc) enters the cyclone itself eventually clogging it.

After going throught their recommended solution on their web site without fixing the problem, it was a typical customer service experience on calling. But with persistence in explaining their faulty design to them (particularly with regard to the fact that it's caused by routine maintenance), they'll break down and send you a new cylone unit at no charge - from there on out ensure that the thing is sealed after emptying or performing normal maintenance.

Although the original question is somewhat dated, hopefully this will save others some aggravation in dealing with the problem.

There is no belt. The brush is direct drive by a seperate motor. There is a motor reset switch that you use if the brush is not turning. If that does not fix the problem, you have to take the unit in for service http://manuals.electroluxusa.com/prodinfo_pdf/Edison/86668R4en.pdf

The part number for the hose is 47086.
The best thing to do is contact the nearest Aerus Electrolux dealer.
If it's just the switch or handle that broke, it will be more cost effective to have that replaced. If I remember right, the hose costs close to $200 new. A new switch may cost up to $20, but probably quite a bit less.
The nearest Aerus store can be located using the below link.

My centralux has minimal suction.


your supposed to WASH the sponger fileter out thouroughly NOT wipe it off. the dirt is in the poors thats why the air can't get through. At this point i would replace the filter if its never really been washed.

Electrolux Renaissance canister


there are a couple situations to this issue. one is the bag that was replaced is a incorrect one and it is not meeting the switch for the bag pop circuit. some over the counter bags cause this issue. another problem could be the switch itself. or the bag door not being tight enoug to make contact with the bag.
