That is the easiest way, just hold the attachment end of the hose into dirt inlet (preferably the one on the unit itself) and use your hands to try and seal the end as best you can.

Electrolux e130a motor not start


If you've determined that it's not a thrown breaker in your box, and you've depressed the small breaker on the unit itself and still does not start, then it's either the relay board inside the motor housing or the motor itself. If it's 15+ yrs. old , that's most likely the problem and I do replace them. Hope that helps!

Lack of suction at power unit


Check that the Handle has a slider to adjust air flow, Electrolux Vac's arent really designed for carpet cleaning, check hose for breaks or cuts and everything is secure, while its on run your hands all over the hose and vac to locate any air flow that should not be.

Let me know.

How to reverse suction


If you have another vacuum handy (such as a shop vac), put your shop vac hose onto the exhaust and direct it into your other vacuum. Some vacuums allow you attach something to the exhaust, but many have abandoned this very handy design feature. Sometimes a broom handle works too. Where in the hand unit is it stuck?

What's the "Service" LED for


Page 6 of the manual states,
"The Service LED is a red light

that comes on when service

is required. Please call an

Aerus location to perform a

service check on the CentraLux

(including the hose, wand and
power nozzle system)."

If a rep comes to your home, there's no charge.
If you've misplaced the manual, you can download one at the following site.

Have a small ball caught in between the handle and the hose and was wondering if the handle comes off


Depending on which style hose you have:

Dolphin Handle: There is a small retaining clip on the hose that can be removed by a flat head screw driver. Make sure your hose is not connected to the inlet and the power cord is disconnected from the inlet valve. If not you will receive an electric shock

Non Dolphin Handle: There are two screws under the handle. One at the back and one by the suction control. Remove those two screws, and pull the wire cover off by the suction control and when the piece is removed the hose should slide right out of the handle.

No suction


If this is an Electrolux, start by testing the suction at the inlet nearest the vac or at the 30 degree elbow on the left. If you have suction there but not elsewhere, and can hear the vac running when the hose is plugged in you have blockage in your main line between the vac and the rest of the house.
You should first test the hose, then the inlets one by one. Drop a quarter into the handle of the hose and shake it through to the far end. If it comes out your hose is clear. Next mark a tissue with a number and **** it into the hose at each inlet, checking the bucket to see if teh tissue has claered the lines. If none of the tissue make it to the bucket, , get a shop vac, open the inlet nearest the vac and **** the obstruction backwards out the inlet. As blockage clears you will hear thinks moving in the pipe. Post back with results

My vacuum hose has split very close to the handle- how do I remove the handle, cut the hose at the split & reattach it to the handle unit - Centralux central vacuum system. Where can I find a diagram...


Do Not Cut the hose!
It has wiring inside to control the vac and power head. This is a swivel handled hose with both low and high voltage contacts in it. The same wiring which gives the hose its ribbing, is conducting current for two applications,
If your hose has a switched handle, a very experienced, trained AERUS Electrolux tech will a have a tough time doing this job and will likely refuse as it is not recommended per company policy.
You can purchase a shrink wrap tube which will prolong the life of the hose if it has not collapsed, however this is a short term fix.
I could walk you through this as I have done it before ...Unfortunately, even if you were able to dismantle the hose successfully you would not be able to purchase the wire terminals which you would cut off the end when shortening . Sorry its a proprietary part.

Clogged Hose


Hi, this sounds like you have something stuck quite firmly in the hose!! If you use a good sturdy stick then you should be able to move the object without any damage to the hose. Check along the outside of the hose first just incase something has pushed its way out of the hose wall.
Get back to me.........

I have an Electrolux Centralux. When I plug the hose in at one of the wall outlets the motor will not start. If I go to the motor and slap the unit it will start.....then...it will not stop unless I unplug the power cord to the motor.
If I plug the power cord back in, the unit will not restart until I slap the motor unit again. The unit has only been used 20 - 30 times.
Any suggestions? Thanks, Bruce


Hello,
I would advise you to ALWAYS to FIRST UNPLUG YOUR VACUUM before beginning any service procedure. You may have a bad inlet or household outlet; try all the inlets in the house too. But it sounds to me that your carbon brushes are dirty and need cleaning or replacing would be my 1st suggestion. Take a good wire brushes or pipe cleaner to clean the inside of the carbon brushes if they stick then replace them. So if the unit has only been used 20 to 30 times I would suggest some one to come and look @ it who did the install because it is still under a factory warranty and if you start messing with things you will void the factory warranty on the motor. And then if it is the motor for some reason then the factory or vendor will eat the cost of the repair. 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.
