Question about Vacuums

1 Answer

Electrolux mondo z1175 vacuum cleaner not working.

I vacuumed one area, then disconnected the plug and tried to vacuum another area from a new wall power socket. Nothing at all from the machine, no engine sound, no action. I took out the 5 top screws and opened the electrics area but can see no problems ie loose wires, etc. It isn't the hose blocked as doesn't even go when tube removed. Any suggestions gratefully received please. thanks

Do not get upset with me, but I must ask this question!!! 1) Did u try any other appliance in that outlet, or 2) Did you go back to the original outlet to see if the vacuum works there? It is kind of a coincidence that it quit working only after you moved it to another area. Let me know please!

Testimonial: "Hi No I would never get upset with someone trying to help. Yes I have indeed tried the vacuum on other sockets where other appliances do work so it is not that (I guess; but then I am not particularly techie; I thought I was being adventurous taking the top off). I wondered whether there is a fuse somewhere in the sytem which may need to be replaced but I couldn't see anything obvious where I took the top off. Any comments/suggestions gratefully received. cheers Doug"

SOURCE: Electrolux #1521 Canister Vacuum won't stay closed

hi from uk your problem with the canister cover/door coming off whilst vaccing ? you have renewed bag ? ok but there is a filter/gauze also inside the canister where bag is fitted if you check inside you should see the filter at opposite end from where bag is secured it is usually fitted behind a slotted pull out plastic gate ? this filter/gauze is to allow air out of canister when vaccing and the filter traps any dust that may accumulate inside the canister case so the dust does not get blown out to atmosphere/rooms SO if this filter is clogged it will not allow vacced air to escape out of canister so result is build up of pressure within cylinder and eventually cover flips open ! so for now you can remove filter/gauze and wash then dry refit this will allow air to escape from canister but still retain dust particles from escaping as it is designed for however may i suggest you replace filter when convenient ? all above is on assuming that the latch on cover is working ok and not now damaged ? hope this helps best wishes

SOURCE: electrolux vacuum cleaner z4703 doesn't start

HI It could be the a number of issues.
The actual power switch could be at fault and needs replaced which has to be done by an official repairer.
OR if the vacuum cut out initially wait for a day and then try it again.
Also if the filters have been cleaned check that there is no dirt stopping the motor from coming on i.e. check the beater bar (remove the hood if neccessary) and check the drive belt is intact, also check all tubes to see there is no clogging.
If you have cleaned the filters you need to make sure they are dry rather than damp to wet as water seeping into a motor is very dangerous.

SOURCE: Nutone CV556 Vaccuum Cleaner -Continuously running

Start with this. Unplug the vac to shut off, then disconnect the low voltage wiring at the vac.Plug the vac back in. If the vac still runs you have an internal short on the relay or wiring inside the vac.
If the vac stops then the vac and final wiring is OK and the problem is in the wiring in the house.
Have you removed any inlets for painting or had any renos done or pictures hung. If so undo what you did last. If inlets were disturbed remove them and look for low voltage vac wires touching metal backing plates in the wall or touching the inlet mounting screws.
If you have done a reno or hung pictures you may have pierece the wire for the vac creating a low voltage short which will keep the vac running until removed. I have seen this happen with freshly installed 1/4 round molding along a baseboard

I opened the vacuum,i checked the cord and it is in the correct form,not tangle etc..still doesn't work after pluging it the wall out let..help


Possibly a broken wire. It is common for the flexible cable to break at the 3 pin plug end from constantly pulling the cord / plug out of the socket or if its a retractible cord, they get broken where the cord enters the machine rewinder. this happens when the cord is pulled out to its maximum length all the time and eventually cuts through the cord. I would try a new 3 pin plug first.

How do i remove the power supply socket from the dyson wall mount


Hi Les, it's Jack at Dyson.

The end of the charger cord assembly which attaches to the machine itself is held in place securely by a friction-fit connection. You should be able to use something like a flat-bladed screwdriver to free the end of the charger cord from the docking station. Then with the docking station removed from the wall, you should be able to disconnect the charger cord completely from the rear of the dock, following the route shown in the image below:

Tornado Piranha 2-Speed Floor Cleaner Machine will not turn on


If you get nothing on any speed, the first thing to check is whether you're getting power. The most common failure is the plug ( the part you put into the wall socket ) You can buy a replacement plug at any hardware store or you can take it to your local vacuum repair shop and have it fixed.

My cord has to be pushed in to socket and giggled to get the vacuum to have power? Any suggestions?


You might want to remove the electric plug from the wall and spread the prongs just a little bit, it sounds like the plug might be loose in the wall socket.....try it in another wall socket and see if the problem continues to exist...generally it you get the same result from similar wall sockets...you may have looseness in the electrical plug...meaning that you might have been unplugging the cord by grabbing the cord and snatching versus unplugging with the plug itself. Hope this helps.

I was vacuuming and the vacuum just stopped running. The cord is fairly new so I know it isn't that. Any suggestions?


Sometimes when the small pipe from the motor fan gets plugged up the motor will overheat. For safety reasons, the motor shuts off. If you able to start up the vacuum later, and the suction is not great, then follow the owner's manual to unplug the hose. It is not difficult, but it does require disassembly of the sweeper part of the vacuum. Make sure that you unplug the machine before you try to make any repairs. I have had to do this myself on occasion when the vac seemed to lose suction power. Another problem might be that you vacuum bag might be too full.

Since you mentioned that the cord is fairly new, I will make the assumption that you replaced the cord. If that is the case, then make sure the cord is unplugged from the wall, and check the connections of the cord to the vacuum. One of the wires might not have been attached properly and worked it was loose. This can happen especially if you pull hard of the cord when vacuuming. Oreck's come with a fairly long cord, but you still have to plug into a socket when you run out of cord.

If either of those suggestions does not work, then I recommend a service call to a local repair center.

My electrolux oxygen won't turn on. Could it be the switch and can I fix it myself?


mcdevito75 here, The first thing is to make sure you are useing a live or good wall outlet. Then you can try the on / off switch a few times. If this doesn"t work it may be the switch itself. Look for an appliance repair center in your area.

Kenmore Powermate power head not working


I've got the same problem. Try checking out the electrical connection where the hose attaches to the canister. The hot male terminal is corroded and the female socket is burned out. Its an unfortunate design flaw that every time you open the vacuum to replace the bag the electrical connection disconnects and reconnects. Not sure if I can find replacement parts for a 10 year old vacuum or if a home-made re-wiring job is in order. Will find out tomorrow.
