It stays closed until the temp. is excedded, then opens. Does the motor shaft turn easily or does it drag. If it drags, then that is what is causing the heat problem. Not sure what it should read, it could be bad, but it should read low ohmns, so it is hard to say.

WARNING WARNING Danger danger Will Robinson! The power head "wand" and the hose from the body of the vacuum have shorts in them. While my wife was using this machine.. she started smelling plastic.. seeing whitish smoke and then sparks... The pin connector arc'd through the plastic... Some research on Google found that this has been a large problem for Electrolux, when i tried to call the factory.. robots.... no solution. Then I contacted a distributor and they informed me that it was not really that big of a problem. Only later to say, that they had replaced ALOT of them. My unit was past its warranty period so I just hardwired it. (now the unit is only two pieces, body and hose w/wand.)

SOURCE: electrolux oxygen 3 fuse
The fuse on my ELECTROLUX Oxygen3's sumo board did have clear markings: F5AL250V - this is a 5A/250V 20mm fuse made by BEL FUSE, however, any other such fuse should work. The fuse on my board was blown (luckily, what caused it seems to be a glitch as replacing the fuse was all that I had to do). I got 5A/250V 20mm fuse from RadioShack and, expecting that this could happen again, I also installed a simple (5A/250V-rated) automotive fuse holder (also from RadioShack) (the only fuse holder that was available at a local store) and it works wonderfully now. Should the fuse blow on me again, I should be able to replace it in less than 3 minutes.

SOURCE: how to remove the motor cover?
There are 2 screw under the removable outlet cover and 2 more under the shiny label under the booster slider. Pick off the label to find them.

Dismantling the vacuum probably won't help much, and reassembling can be a bear.
To check the intake, remove bag and look into bottom of bag well. It there's a filter there, remove it and check intake at bottom of bag well. Clear if there is.
The afterfilter on a canister is located beneath the air diffuser grid on the top of the machine where the tools can be attached. Remove this cover and there should be a white filter. Yours is probably black, or at least real dirty, if it's never been changed. This also blocks the airflow, reducing suction, and potentially damaging the motor. Extremely dirty filters are an indicator of how much dust is getting into and through the motor. This is usually caused by using generic bags rather than the genuine Electrolux, now Aerus, bags.
It is also an indicator of another internal problem on some other Aerus and pre-Aerus Electrolux vacuums.
