Sure, Disconnect the two wires going directly to the motor. Then apply line voltage directly to the motor terminals. If motor does not turn it is defective - check the brushes for wear or bad contact. If motor runs then the electronics are bogus.

    Now i'd only need to know what does the blinking error code L stand for...

  • richie46 Nov 29, 2013

    The products manual should tell you. If you lost the manual, check it out on the manufacturer's website.

    And there is no downloadable SERVICE MANUAL (with explanations for all error codes) on the whole internet.

Electrolux ultra one shuts off immediately after start up auto keeps flashing? ?


Chances are your tube is plugged up and the motor has overheated. Make sure you bag isn't full and your filters are cleaned. Try to locate the blockage either in the tube, the sweeper chute to the tube etc.

TC-P50S30 Plasma HDTV won't come on blinks 7 times


That is a error code and depending (Panasonic?) on model means either power board or another issue---the error codes can sometimes be misleading or too vague to pinpoint to one board.

Note: these (all brands) sets only sell boards, no individual parts.

Not knowing your skill level you may be able to tell me that, the first thing would be to examine the power board for damage or puffed up filter caps---let me know if questions here etc.

My vacuum cleaner will run for a few minutes and then shuts off. The plug light on the panel blinks. I thought the motor was shut, but after a long time it will turn on again, but again, only for a few...


I know nothing about your particular vacuum, but many vacuum cleaners these days have
safety cut out's, which causes the motor to do exactly what you describe. Sadly blockages, faulty switches, over stretched cables, carbon brushes etc could also give similar symptoms, so sounds like a job for the repairer on this occasion. Get a quote first if you can.

Hello, My Electrolux Oxygen motorized brush stopped working. How do I determine if it is the switch, a belt or something else that is causing the motor not to work?


Hey Lee,
We had the same problem and after taking it to a service guy who didn't even want to LOOK at the vacuum, it occurred to us to plug the powerhead brush directly into the handle and it worked! So, we were able to determine that the problem was the tube - not the brush.

We ordered a replacement tube.

Hope this helps.
