Question about Electrolux Vacuums

Open Question

Just purchased an electrolux precision. Ran it for 10 min and filled the canister! I loved it. I emptied and replaced the canister on the machine with no issues. ready for round 2 or so I though...now the hair and dirt stays in the top of the canister in the filter cup. very little gets thru to the vanister where you can see it. It has got to be how I put it back together, but nothing looks wrong or even clogged. I have re- done it several times. ideas?

SOURCE: bissell bagless

I had the same problem, called Bissell over 10 times! They send me 3 plastic inserts for the dirt chamber, not the problem. I solved it by throwing the Bissell away and buying a Eureka bagged vacuum, no more problems.

SOURCE: washable filter is getting clogged with dog hair

I have a Dyson Animal Absolute and a rescue white american eskimo dog and two tabby cats.

We found white hair on top of the washable filter and called Dyson to fix it. There shouldn't be anything on that filter.

The Dyson rep said:

Check the black rubber seal that surrounds the "cyclone" holes as it may need to be pushed down because it isn't sealing properly.

To do this remove the cannister and dump out the stuff in there. Do it outside so the fluff doesn't circulate in the house.

Turn the entire filter part upside down so you can see inside.

Check the seal that is at the bottom of the entire filter part and look at the two half moon "nozzles" that **** up the dirt.. now make sure the black rubber band that surrounds those two nozzles is either up or down... do this then vacuum a bit.. check the washable filter to see if it is clean...make sure the rubber seal actually is sealing.. it should just set into place once you have it done properly.

Now if this doesn't fix it, call Dyson, the number is printed on the front of the machine.. and give them your serial number which is located behind the removable cannister. The machine has a 5 year warranty.

Electrolux precision


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.

Bag full switch is bad


I assume this is an Electrolux Canister with long narrow body and a dial control on top for adjusting the bag fill level.. Please confirm model and name on canister, as in LE, Ambassador, Renaissance, etc.
If this is a plastic bodied unit with 2 side bumpers the body opens like a **** shell after sliding the bumpers out the front. The normal cause is a failed control valve under the dial at the top center of the vac. The failed part can only be replaced, not serviced and can purchased through an AERUS Electrolux repair center. Please confirm and I can wa;lk you through the process if required

THE VACUUM CLEANER WORKS FOR 6-7 MINS THEN CUTS OUT, THEN AFTER A WHILE STARTS AGAIN FOR A FURTHER 6-7 MINS THEN KEEPS REPEATING THIS PROBLEM


What you describe is typical of a machine that's overheating. This is almost always caused by a blockage. Check the machine thoroughly for any blockages, including any filters, and my bet is that you will find something that shouldn't be there that needs removing (or possibly replacing). I hope this helps.  Good luck!

EL7020A ELECTROLUX VAC SHUTS OFF AFTER 10 MIN


The symptoms you describe are typical of a vac that has a blockage (hence poor suction). It cuts out because it's over-heating. You need to check the hose, the filters and anywhere else where something may have got stuck. Blockages are often caused by things like paper clips, but can be caused by something as apparently harmless as a piece of paper which gets stuck and then debris builds up behind it and causes a log-jam.

Electrolux canister vaccum 2100


The filter for your Electrolux 2100 is located on the rear top of the machine. It is covered by a plastic grill. You simply place your finger in the rear of the plastic grill, push the tab in slightly and lift the grill up to expose the filter. The filter is approximately 4" by 6". It is NOT washable. Most Vac Shops sell replacement filters in addition to them being available at the local Electrolux distributor.
