Question about Electrolux Centralux Vacuum

1 Answer

My centralux has minimal suction.

I emptied the canister and wiped the sponge filter off and almost no suction. I can hear the vacuum when I plug in the hose and turn on the switch. What do I look for?

Your supposed to WASH the sponger fileter out thouroughly NOT wipe it off. the dirt is in the poors thats why the air can't get through. At this point i would replace the filter if its never really been washed.

Filter queen vacuum head has no power


More information needed. When you turn on the vacuum do you hear the motor running? Is the problem that there is no suction at the head? Is there suction at the canister when the hose is removed? I would first check to make sure that there is no obstruction in the hose. Have you checked the filters to see if they are clean?

Dyson Vaccum suction not strong enough


Look for an obstruction in the air passages at the bottom and where the air enters the canister. Make sure the HEPA filter is not plugged (take it out for a test). Hope this helps!

Loss of suction


There should be a sponge like filter in the area of the canister and no this is NOT the HEPA filter. When you find this other filter you will want to bang it off outside and then put it back in and you should be all set.

Extreme vaccum has no suction.


Make sure you put the dirt cone back in the bucket to create the tight seal. You will have no suction without the dirt cone.

I have a dyson dc 17 what is the best way to thourghly cleaning , so I can get better suction , also do you have a instruction manul to. I seem to have misplaced mine thanks


The first step towards improving the suction is to clean the circular HEPA filter. The filter also houses a circular sponge which should be rinsed and dried before putting it back. Check the HEPA filter to see if it needs replacement -- will look muddy! Another quick check is to remove the HEPA filter, run the vacuum cleaner momentarily in upright position to check if suction is restored at the hose end.

After doing this if suction is still poor or non existent, you should detach the transparent canister - a bit tricky since the release rod for the flap has to be aligned when you want to reassemble the unit.
Once the canister is removed, you should check and clean the center tube/shaft for any clogged dust (use a wire coat hanger if needed to pry out the dust). This tube gets clogged if the vacuum cleaner was used to pick up damp/wet spills etc.
