Question about Electrolux Central Vacuum

1 Answer

I was just vacuuming with my Centralux Aerus central vac and I turned it off for a minute. When I turned it back on it will not work. The power outlet is fine, the green light is on on the unit and the reset button doesn't appear to be doing anything at all. I cleaned the filter and emptied it just a day ago.

I dont know if you had your unit looked at yet but it sounds like the Power module is going. I repair the machines so I know some of the work.

SOURCE: Electrolux central vac problems

I work on many types of units. If you electric floor brush runs but you have no suction then there is possibly a problem with the relay board that allows you to turn on the suction from the hose handle. This is a low voltage (24 V) switching loop circuit that will cause the 120 V motor in the unit to run.

Inside the wall valve are two brass pins. NOTE: there are 120V valves installed on some systems known as a Super Valve. A shock hazared exists if you work on that type of valve. That being said. In the round portion of the valve you can use a garage hose that has a 360 deg. chrome ring to test the valve. The ring completes the circuit causing the unit to power up and suction at the end of the hose. If the suction is weak, there is a colg in the pipe. If you hear no airflow, the relay inside the unit did not energize or the motor is bad.

To test: go to the unit and turn the switch on the side to "manual" if the unit turns on the motor should be ok. DO NOT RUN THE UNIT without and open valve. In some brands dammage to your motor will occure.

If the unit did not run, look for a small button near the switch. This is a circuit breaker for the motor. If it is poped out and you hear a "click" when you press it in there is most likely motor problems and someone should be contacted for repair.

Hope this helps!!

SOURCE: central vacuum comes on but no suckshion

go to the canister and disconnect the main suction tube going tinto the canisterturn it on.do you have suction.i bet you do.if you do then your clog is where all the other ines come together from inside the house.each room has a inlet where you connect the hose.well they all come together at one point before it makes it to the canister.theres a fork where it branches off and goes to each room.so no suction in any room means the clog is at the fork.if it were anywhere else some rooms would have suction and one wouldn't.i hope i didn'tmake it too confusing to you.please leave feedback

SOURCE: 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.

SOURCE: my vacuum hose has split very close to the handle-

Do Not Cut the hose!
It has wiring inside to control the vac and power head. This is a swivel handled hose with both low and high voltage contacts in it. The same wiring which gives the hose its ribbing, is conducting current for two applications,
If your hose has a switched handle, a very experienced, trained AERUS Electrolux tech will a have a tough time doing this job and will likely refuse as it is not recommended per company policy.
You can purchase a shrink wrap tube which will prolong the life of the hose if it has not collapsed, however this is a short term fix.
I could walk you through this as I have done it before ...Unfortunately, even if you were able to dismantle the hose successfully you would not be able to purchase the wire terminals which you would cut off the end when shortening . Sorry its a proprietary part.

My main power breaker for the house, shuts off after I have used the Electrolux Centralux vac for a short period of time - why does this happen?


This is usually an indication that the motor is going bad. Motors in central vacuum systems are very easy to replace. Most motors can be purchased online.

Motor to replace or rebuild:

Depending if your motor just started to get noisy, you can take it to a private vacuum repair shop and most rebuild for around $80 to $100.00. Usually they replace top/bottom bearing and the armature carbon brushes.

If it's loud and vibrating and probably sparking. Do not bother to rebuild, the armature is now probably damaged and not worth the new parts.

Replacing the motor is pretty basic and usually saves you about $150.00. They're pretty simple to release out of the unit and are pretty simple to remove and reinstall.

To find out your replacement motor number you will need to find the stamped model number on the motor itselt. It is a 6-8 digit number. That is the Ametek Motor Model number. Ametek is used in pretty well all central vacuum systems. Motors range from $99 to $239.00

Check with your local dealer. Electrolux dealerships are the only place to get the part. Call them to send someone knowledgeable out to check the machine. Depending on the age of your vacuum, it may still be under warranty. If the broken fan is not due to abuse or normal wear and tear, then the warranty should cover it.
