BE careful here. Do not fish a coat hanger in the handle.
The original hose has a set of detachable handle componnets.There are two metal screws in the underside of the hand grip.Do Not pry. Once removed go to the suction dial area underside of the grip. Observe the plastic fingers near the dial. These must be reset in their " track " when reassembling the handle.
Gently insert a small flat screwdriver between the rubber wiring contacts and the plastic tongue wraps around the socket. this tongue which extends from the hose handle adjacent to the metal tube. Work you way back to the hose area carefully separating the "hand grip cover" from the hose handle itself.
Once apart remove the obstruction. Carefully clean the two brass rings looking for any pitting. If pitted, gently polish by rotating fine wet/dry sandpaper around the rings, then lube with vaseline.
The matching contact fingers on the handgrip cover should be cleaned as well and gently tensioned to put a bit more presusre on the contact rings.
Slide the handle ONLY onto the hose. Once in place the contact rings will be visible. Now you can work the handgrip cover back into place starting with the two tabs at the hose end below the contact rings. To seat the small fingers at the control valve gently click into place before reinstalling upper handle screws.

I need help removing a cat toy from the handle that connects to the hose on my vacuum? The ball seems to be stuck in the curve or just below the curve before it enters the hose.


The handle needs to be removed to do this. Taking the handle apart and especially putting it back together can be tricky, so I recommend taking it in to an authorized Aerus Electrolux store to have the item removed. If you don't put it back together properly, it could result in an electric shock, and even a fire. I have seen a totally melted hose from someone trying to dig out an object, then the hose wiring shorts out and lights up.
I dislike having a disassembled machine or part brought in to be reassembled, and finding a broken tab that requires replacing the handle or part that's brought in.
Be safe, please take it to the shop.

Consider this. If your vacuum is still under warranty, removing the hose will void the warranty on the hose. I strongly recommend calling an authorized dealer/consultant.
Although it may seem to be fairly simple to remove the handle, there are wires that need to be disconnected in order to separate the handle from the hose, gaining access to the toy. And reconnected. If not properly done, attempting this may lead to needing to purchase a new hose.

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.

Small rubber ball got sucked up and is caught in the handle or hose. How can I take it part to remove the object?

Hello,
I would advise you to ALWAYS to FIRST UNPLUG YOUR VACUUM before beginning any service procedure. in some cases the Electrolux handle will come apart but id not then I use a couple of methods, if you have another canister vacuum or shop vac then turn on the Electrolux and the other canister vacuum and try to pull the ball out one way or the other. Or you can use a wire coat hander and create a little hook on the end and insert it into the handle portion of the vacuum to see if you can pull out the ball or loosen it so that it will roll out. One other choice that id you have a long small broom handle the length of the hose or longer and then you can push the ball out but the handle has to be smaller than the size of the inside of the hose and also be VERY CAREFUL… because it is an electric hose and it is very expensive so if you cannot remove the small ball bring it to a local vacuum cleaner dealer or the absolute last resort is to replace the hose, but most clogs can be removed. So if you need further assistance, please feel free to contact your local vacuum cleaner dealer in your area or in the yellow pages, or contact the factory phone number or website to further assist you with your questions.

ELECTROLUX OLYMPIA ONE HOSE


Usually the older hose get replaced, they just weren't made to be repaired, if it looks like something that will come off, then try either warming the sleeve up with hot water or a hair drier to see if you can work it off after it has warmed up.

No Power coming thru hose handle


It probably wouldn't help, it sounds like the switch. Have you tried pushing the reset button? (It's a little red button on the end of the power nozzle.)
