My Electrolux is about 3 years old. Never had any problems with it until recently, it is LOUD. It doesn't seem to make a 'normal' running noise unless it butts up against a wall, furniture, etc. trying to vacuum is like being on a jet runway. Is something clogged? Does it just have issues from not being used for about a year? (Last house had no carpet).


Hello,
I would advise you to ALWAYS to FIRST UNPLUG YOUR VACUUM before beginning any service procedure.
It sounds to me that you have a broken fan, in every vacuum I have seen with the loud noise such as you described, it has been a broken fan or fan blade and is in need of replacement. You can try to do it yourself but I suggest going to your local vacuum cleaner dealer for service with the problem. Remember, a suggested belt change if the belt is flat would be 4 to 6 months and If you have a geared belt the belt change would be one year or better depending on wear factor. 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.

SOURCE: Repair manual for Electrolux EPIC 6500 SR

I don't have a manual for these but the trickiest thing about these units is taking them apart. If you have an Aerus/Electrolux dealer near you, it's not a bad investment to have them install the motor for you. You would probably receive a warranty with the work, and the things a long time. Great return on investment. But if you are determined to do it yourself, open the front of the canister and remove the bag. As you are looking at the front of the unit, there are two vinyl coverd strips that run the length of the unit. Pull forward on these strips and then pull out so that the vinyl seperates from the plastic underneath. Now grab the plastic strip with a pair of needle nose pliers and pull towards the front of the canister. These can be tough if the machine has never been opened up before, but pull as hard as you need to, to slide the strip out. Once both strips are out, turn the machine over, pull out on the sides of the bottom of the unit, and lift up. The bottom should come of relatively easily, and eveything will be exposed. Good Luck!!

SOURCE: Disassemble electrolux olympia one vacuum.

Before taking the machine apart, always check for clogs in the hose and power nozzle, full bag, and/or plugged hole under the bag. Suction/vacuum loss can also be caused by leaky or cracked hose, including the section in the power nozzle.<br /> The best way to check for clogs is simply drop a large marble in one end and let it roll through. To check for leaks in hose, hook to exhaust port, pour a small amount of liquid dish soap in other end of hose, lift high and turn on vacuum. Bubbles will appear at badly worn spots and cracks in hose.<br /> There is no need to pull out the motor, as their is no filter surrounding it, motor does not need lubrication, and the above check should result in locating the problem.<br /> Repair manuals are only available to Electrolux franchise owners as highly restricted software.

My Electrolux el8807a precision upright vacuum is making an awful noise when I turn it on. Any possible causes?


Your vacuum might have a full of dust reservoir. Empty it and it will become quiet again, since the vacuum motor will not be overcharged with clogged dust.

It is probably the brush roll motor making the noise. Remove the brush roll & belt and turn both motors on. If you do not hear the noise when both motors are running the noise is likely coming from the brush roll

Vacuum making loud noise


It could be 1 of 3 things:

1. The belt2_bing.gif that drives the beater bar. (Inexpensive)

2. An impeller that has a broken wing or 2, throwing it off balance. (Expensive)

3. Or, the bearings in the motor are going out. (Expensive)

Hope this helps,

Motor or beater bar making horrible noise


The belt could be damaged. Call the Dyson helpline. They will listen to the noise and troubleshoot it for you. If it is the brushbar motor they will have a repair dealer look at it. If it is the belt that is damaged, their solution will depend on whether your machine is still under warranty or not.

Check the brush roll first, if it is ok, then probably your motor has gone bad and will have to be replaced.
