The easiest solution would be to call your local Aerus/ Electrolux representative, because the corporation doesnt publish diagrams.

SOURCE: How do we open this vacuum?

Some of these, the strip on each side, in the middle, slide off, then the 2 halfs will separate. They only slide in one direction and some are hard to get off.

SOURCE: Electrolux Central Vac Hose Clogged

John,

There are several handle types. The pump style has about 8 phillips screws that hold the handle together. Make sure it is not connected to the wall as some have 120V cords or direct connect pins to supply power to a motor driven brush.

The two halves will separate and if it has slip rings the tube will lift up out with the hose.

If this is a low voltage hose, there are three tabs at the base of the handle you press in and pry out the end piece. You will need to remove the switch contacts before the hose will pull out. Remove the phillips screw that holds the switch trim in place and lift out. This will allow the cover to be removed to lift the contacts off the slip rings and the hose will drop out.

Hope this helps!

SOURCE: Electrolux model LX vacuum- Problem, ejects empty

The vacuum is doing exactly what it is suppossed to do, on this model, the bag will eject when the suction is reduced due to the pores in the bag becoming clogged by dirt, dust, or fine powder. Try a NEW bag, and **** up less superfine dust such as baby powder or plaster dust that immediately clog the bag. Next, on later model LX's on the bottom of the canister near the bag door is a dial, setting the dial to a higher number will reduce the sensitivity of this automatic bag ejection operation and will allow the vacuum to continue to run until the bag is even more clogged, however, running the vacuum with a fully clogged bag causes the motor to overheat and reduces suction and damages the vacuum. If you have an early model LX, there may have been a "basement and attic" key mounted to the bottom, but often are lost by now and it is used to make such an adjustment. The 1952 model LX was the first with the diaphram automatic bag ejection system and the problem of the bag ejecting too soon was common. An improvement on the model LXI added the control dial with numbers 1 to 6 on it to adjust the sensitivity. I am looking up more info on adjusting a model without the dial because I just picked one up at an estate sale a few days ago and I've heard (some time ago) that the early ones with no dial had a "basement and attic" key that snapped to the bottom of the cleaner to make this adjustment, not sure where it is though and the one I have does not seem to have the key. Will let you know more if I find it! Thanks, I am an Electrolux fan and will use nothing else because I have used so many vacuums but love the convenience of Electrolux design and durability. They have been in my family since my grandparents came to America and are simply the best in my opinion.

SOURCE: I have an older Electrolux canister vacuum - model

Check to be certain the thermo lite is on and not the bag full indicator. The thermo detector is very reliable, but the bag fill valve often fails. If it is the thermo, check your hose and wand for blockage by dropping a coin through them,before opening the vac itself.Otherwise you may have a bad set of motor bearings causing the motor to overheat due to its age.
The 2100 and all its canister cousins made since 1982 seem to be prone to failure of the dial valve on top cracking internally. The causes the bag full indicator to come on and the vac to shut down.
To open the vac you will need to slide the locking keys and bumpers forward with the bag door open. Do this with a set of pliers. Once done the vac will open from front to back like a **** shell. Be careful to look at the underside hinge are of the bag door before separating and mark and locate the wiring harness . This vac only goes back together one way, perfectly assembled it pops together with ease. If any piece is out of line it`s like a RUBIKS Cube. Take your time . OEM parts are only available through an AERUS Elctrolux dealer or repair shop

I have an epic 6500 sr. I need to take apart the handle on the wand to clean it (I unknowingly vacuumed over a puddle of urine, yuk!) It is a replacement wand. I've unscrewed the only screw I can find...


Look on the handle near the wand handle release button for extension and there is a little round cover, under that is another screw...usually it is a tamper proof torque screw.

How do I take the handle apart on my Kenmore Progressive vacuum model 116.21614011? I removed the screws but it won't come apart.


There are catches that snap the handle together. It's hard to separate the handle without breaking the catches. Replacement may be required

My Hoover upright U5472-900 runs but there is no suction at all. I have taken it apart and thoroughly cleaned it.


Turn it on. Detatch the cleaning tools handle from it's mount. If it still has no suction, you have a plugged hose. Everything your vacuum does goes through that long hose. Take the 2 screws off where it attacvhes to the unit, then gently push a broom handle through it to release/loosen the clog. You should be able to see through the hose from end to end. Toys, tissue and pine needles are big culprets of clogged hoses.

My electrolux ultraone keeps cutting out after a couple of minutes - there are no lights indicating filter or bag?


This is not an Electrolux Lux 7000. Totally different companies.
However, check the hose for clogs. Drop a coin down one end and lift so it should drop out the other. If it doesn't, there's a clog that needs cleared. This can often be done by pushing it out with a broom handle.

We have suction at the outlets but when we plug the hose in we have no suction at the carpet vaccuum head.


Is there suction at the end of the hose? If not, the hose is clogged. Generally the blockage is located near the handle, but sometimes at the other end. Occasionally, if something long, like a straw, is sucked up, it will get caught somewhere else in the hose that's impossible to get to.
You can try to hold the wand end of the hose directly to the CV tank and turning it on. This should clear the clog. If not, hold the handle end to the blower of a shop vac or canister and turn it on. The other end should be either in a large plastic bag, inserted in the in port of the vacuum, or directed outside.
If there is suction at the end of the hose, the most likely place for a clog is at the elbow on the power nozzle or just behind the brush. This can be cleared by using the handle of a wooden spoon or similar blunt object to push the clog back out toward the brush.

If none of these help, take the vacuum to the nearest Aerus Electrolux store for assistance.
