SOURCE: my electrolux ultraone keeps cutting

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.

My electrolux vacuum, model 4870 just stopped while I was vacuuming. Now it will not go on. It was working just fine a few minutes ago, then just stopped. Any ideas


it may be over heating.Check to make sure your hose and power nozzle are not plugged..Simply turning machine on without the hos then putting hose on while running and see if the motor sounds different,ie.winding up higher.....if this doesn't help try changing the bag

Self clean and power lights flashing on electrolux


you either need new filters or you have a bad electronic board or possibly both. Most of these machines only last a couple of years. Not to discourage you, but do yourself a favor and don't buy another one. It's a chinese made Eureka with a lux label. Electrolux went bankrupt many years ago and Eureka bought the name. Miele, Sebo, Riccar, or Lindhaus are all better choices.

The motor may have a thermal protect feature built in. Opens circuit when too hot. This is to protect motor and to prevent a fire. If you can check for lint build up around motor. Also, motor could be on it's way out.

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.

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

We have an electrolux ultraone and today when we tried to turn it on it turned on for 2 secs and turned off - the "auto" button is still flashing though - any tips to fix this would be great!


just fixed one at work today for a bloke I work with it had the flashing AUTO light & turns off after a couple of seconds. Keep in mind I've never fixed a vacuum cleaner before but i am an electronics technician so it wasn't too hard. I'll list how I did it best I can from memory.
What caused his to do this was where the hose connects to the unit there is 3 wires you can see this from the three prongs where it connects. Take off the hatch on the hose with a size 8 Torx driver. once Off you will see three loops of metal and the part that separates will have three contacts with wires leading to the prongs. What happened to his was the middle loop came off and the wire under it had broken free and I suspect shorted to another contact.
I soldered the wire back to the ring and shaped it back together holding it with solder.
Take the cleaner apart I think you need a 20 or 25 Torx driver to do this.
Its tricky and can't remember exactly how to do it without the unit in front of me.
What your looking for is a circuit board on the side of the unit. theres two of them you want the bottom one the top one is for power regulation. theres also the one at the top with the LEDs etc don't worry about that.
On this board inspect the FUSE its a 250V 3.1A and its soldered in, I replaced it with a 3A since it was all I had.
Test it and remember to attach the nozzle back before powering it on. From what I can tell those three metal loops are antennas for the controls on the handle.

The one I fixed was a Z88701p I think Australian model.

Vacum keeps turning off with warning lights


Actually the problem is that you need to change your control valve. The motor has an internal thermostat on it already so the chances of you burning the motor out are very slim. By changing the control valve, you will solve your problem. Very simple and quick fix.

Check your hose for obstruction. That might be the problem. If not, you will probably need service.
